Appetizers and Soups Recipes

Potato and Leek Soup

Potato and Leek Soup

This week I’ve been very busy!  Thursday we went to a new farmers market.   It was very small, (keep in mind this is the desert) but they did have the largest leeks I’ve ever seen.  Yesterday I made an Almond Cheesecake with a Chocolate Ganache top for a bakesale/carwash at the local middle school (and I got my semi-annual car wash too).  The mother of one of the students was badly burned in a fire and they had a great turnout to support the family.  I’ll add that recipe, and the one I made for dinner, schnitzel and some fried baby potatoes (also from the farmers market) soon. 

I have to admit that, although I think I have probably had leek soup at some point, I have never made it and never really even thought about making it but they looked good so I thought I’d give it a try.  After checking several recipes, I choose to try Emeril Lagasse’s which I followed except of course, I doubled the amount of bacon!  It was a pretty quick and relatively healthy lunch (by my standards anyway) and it came out great.
