Time for Another Wonderful Recipe from Karen Secor!

TEAM-PRZADA's wonderful assistant, Karen Secor is a FANTASTIC cook.  Check out her guest blog to see why!!

The weather is finally getting cooler and it time to think about cooking foods that make you feel warm inside and give you comfort. Soup is one of my favorite foods to prepare. There are so many ways you can change it up and make the recipe your own. You can always add a different spice that you are fond of or change the vegetable to your liking.  The only rule:  just don’t be afraid to be creative when you’re cooking. That is what I have done with my potato soup recipe. I found a recipe that had the basics of potato soup, but it just sounded a little….well…bland.  I love spicy food so I added red pepper and green chile. Of course, it does not have to be that spicy. If heat is not your thing, then try something else.  However, I do recommend adding some spice to give it a great flavor. Want to make it a meal?  Add a sandwich or a salad and you are set!
