I am here to say THANK YOU! Your software is great!!!
When I read the description of the recipe program, I thought it was too good to be true (the price, the ability of the software, etc.). I even called your company by telephone to ask if I understood the promotional information correctly.
Upon receiving it and using it, I have discovered that every bit of it is true! (I LOVE the nutritional calculation feature!) Thanks so much for your product and for keeping it affordable, too!
4 cups finely sliced and diced potatoes (peeled)
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup finely diced yellow onions
1/2 cup finely diced celery
2 14.5-ounce cans chicken broth
1/4 cup water
4 chicken bouillon cubes
8 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 cups + 1/4 cup half-and-half (add a little more if needed)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon white peppers
1/4 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
Shredded Colby/Jack Cheese (garnish)
On medium low heat in a 3 quart sauce pan saute celery and onions with butter. Cook onions until clear and celery take care not to let onions brown. Add chicken broth, potatoes and water. Place on medium low heat and cook until potatoes are very soft and tender.
When potatoes are done add chicken bouillon cubes and cook until cubes have been dissolved. Mash the potatoes slightly but leaving most of them in chunks. Reduce heat and add half and half, stir mixture. Add shredded sharp cheddar cheese and stir until cheese is completely melted and dissolved into mixture. Sprinkle sugar, pepper, and salt into soup, stir. Let soup simmer very slowly for 20 - 30 minutes taking care not to let soup scorch. When ready to serve garnish with shredded Colby cheese, jack cheese and maybe a little parsley. Add a crisp salad and hard rolls and you have a wonderful meal.
