As we speak, this recipe is on the stove and if the first few "taste tests" are whats for dinner gang, this is OUT OF THIS WORLD!! OMG!! I've never made it from a recipe before and thought, I'd give this a go, why? We got a BLIZZARD coming Fri night through early a.m. Sun + anywhere from 10" to 14"!!! What better way to enjoy the snow than with Ellie's "Delicious Ham and Potato Soup!" I happened to see Jennifer's review and sure enough there was a spiral ham bone loaded with ham in the freezer from Christmas, 2009. Did use water initially but as it boiled away, added 2 Knorr's Chicken Bouillon cubes--use none other now, these are the BEST!--not so salty! -almost all of a 32 oz carton of Swanson Chicken Broth and let her rip!! I know I ended up using more but the same ingredients as Ellie's recipe calls for;however, being a very good military brat, "I adapted and overcame!" ;o) I'm always worried the milk will curdled as it did more than once when learning to cook...Will keep y'all posted on that in a few! ;o ) Gang, if you've got a hankering for potato soup in any form, this is the ticket!!! Its the ABSOLUTE BEST I've EVER had! If you're a beginning cook, follow her recipe exactly. If you're a "seasoned cook" rock with it anyway you like--I swear its foolproof and your honey, dinner party, friends over for supper are going to be RAVING about what an "INCREDIBLE" cook you are--that's a promise!
