    Here you go. I didn't cut and paste a few recipes I wanted either. Maybe I'll start a thread asking for people to re-post their recipes.

    Leeks are in season now so I thought Iíd share my fave recipe for leek soup. Itís wonderful on a cool day, and incredibly easy to make.

    Nannyís Irish Leek Soup

    4 medium leeks cut in 1/2 inch slices
    ! medium diced onion
    2-3 diced celery stalks (optional, but I like them)
    4 medium potatoes diced
    4 cups chicken or veggie broth
    1 cup sour cream (Iíve also used 1/2 yogurt, 1/2 sour cream)
    11/2 tbsps. butter (or olive oil and butter mixed)
    Pepper to taste

    In a large saucepan melt butter and add leeks, onions an celery.
    Cook covered on medium heat until tender, stirring occasionally.
    Add potatoes and broth and simmer covered for 30-40 minutes. Add
    more broth if necessary.

    Add sour cream and heat to serving temperature but do NOT boil. Season with fresh-ground pepper and serve immediately.

    Good with sourdough bread.

    You're welcome. You can also use cream instead of milk and full fat sour cream and/or yogourt but I never do.

    Was it the one that I posted? The potato, Leek, Garlic and bacon soup?
