Loaded Baked Potato Soup


In recent days, we’ve experienced a bitter cold snap that makes sunny days lounging by the sea with an icy drink in hand seem like a far and distant memory.  Per usual, I find my solace in food and if it must be cold, I’ll gladly cuddle up to the warmth of a thick and creamy soup like my loaded baked potato.  It is as hearty and sustaining as it is indulgent and comforting.
