My mom used to make a potato leek soup alot while I was groing up and it was my favorite! I asked my mom for the recipe but she could not find it so I went on line and looked at a ton of defferent recipes and I took all the parts that sounded good to me and put them into one. And now this is mine and my moms new favorite. It is also yummy served cold.
