Stir, Laugh, Repeat - Martha A. Cheves, Author

Potato Soup

6 med. potatoes, cut into small cubes
6 cups water
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 - 3/4 cup instant potatoes
1 Tbl. dried minced onions
1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheese
1 can Portobella mushrooms, drained
6-8 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled

Boil potatoes until almost done. To test, stick a fork in one of the potatoes and it should still feel slightly firm. Add instant potatoes and dried onions, cook on low until potatoes are done. If the liquid is too thin, add more instant potatoes. Add sour cream, cheese, mushrooms, and bacon. Stir over low heat until cheese is melted and sour cream is blended. Serves 8-10

Posted March 7, 2009, 11:05 PM EST: Martha A. Cheves has written a definitive cookbook for the ages. I started reading her book today - and could not put it down, except for running to the store for some much needed ingredients. The steak and potatoes recipe literally had my mouth watering. Recipes I had not tasted in years are reborn in Stir, Laugh, Repeat. I smiled when I saw the Banana Puddin' recipe. To have such a wonderful cook guide in these financially stressed times is a much needed; stress relief resource for all families. From Martha's Meaty Mashed Potatoes - to her Breakfast Pinwheels, this is by far one of the most exceptional cook guides that I have ever read. Young cooks just starting out can be guided to great meals by Martha's easy to read directions. SLR is similar to the red and white tablecloth cookbooks Betty Crocker use to sell; that we all spotted on our grandmother's kitchen table. Martha's book has old flavor and contemporary style suitable for meat lovers and vegetarians. I commend this book to all. Thanks Martha! - (Carol Denise Mitchell, Author of Rovella Starr)
