Comfort food at its best! This is the best homemade potato soup I've ever had and first I've ever made. The only thing I really needed to do was liberally add salt. A little bland for me in the beginning but after adding salt all the flavors came out made my taste buds happy! I also added two more carrots for color and taste and added a few dashes of garlic powder. I might even add some garlic cloves next time to the onions. (I LOVE garlic in everything.) I don't own two large stock pots so I had to compensate. After cooking the onion (oh, and I used real butter, not margarine which is bad for you...use olive oil if you're scared of butter) I threw in the carrots and potatoes and only used about 2 cups of water. I added the chicken stock base (plus an extra Tbsp.), stirred well, and let simmer for about 10 minutes. In a seperate bowl I whisked together 1 cup whole milk, 1 cup half and half, and about 5 tbsp flour. I then added that mixture to the potatoes and sprinkled in the thyme and parsley and let sit on very low heat for a while to allow the flavors to come together.
