    Haha, sometimes the best ideas come out from a sleep-infused haze! This one clearly seems like a winner though – who wouldn’t want a ‘baked potato in soup form’??

    Oh man this sounds wonderful! Potato, leeks and garlic are some of my favorite vegetables, so the fact that you put them all together in a luscious soup is the best. I also love how this kind of came out of sleepy conversations with B2. I sometimes have conversations like that with Robert, but it’s usually more nonsense. One time I whispered to him, “watch out for the bacon.” ??? Who knows. It always makes for a good story. At least you got this amazing soup out of it!

    A whole head of roasted garlic, that’s what I’m talking about!!!!!! You and Elizabeth aren’t kind of ladies. Also, that pumpkin French toast – yes, yes definitely an awesome idea. xx!!

    I’m not really a soup person either but this sounds totally magical (mainly because of the excellent amount of garlic involved) and your photos are just stunning, as always.

    Oh, I love that you guys brainstorm recipes before bed (and Pumpkin. Toast = too good ;)! This soup looks so cozy. I love how the simplest ingredients make for the tastiest food. And pancetta–I am so on board with this!

    Well they always say the best ideas come when you’re in the “alfa” state (which should be also just before you fall asleep) and this was clearly an awesome idea. I love a good potato soup, it’s perfect for cold weather.

    This soup is just right for the weather we’ve been having lately. Those 3 flavors together are magic. And I’m with your man on the “hot pockets” because OMG I probably ate like 871,865,564 of those in college. :)

    Oh my goodness, your little late night chats are the cutest thing! And it would seem he comes up with come pretty good ideas! I am in love with how cozy this soup sounds. And all that garlic! YUM! You styling is so gorgeous as well. This whole thing just makes me want to curl up under a blanket with a giant bowl of soup. :)

    This looks heavenly. With it being soup season, potato soups are what I lean towards the most. Have you heard of Lapsang Souchong tea? I have made a potato soup myself before using that tea as broth. It’s a black tea smoked over pine so it created a lovely smokiness. I think I’m going to try your recipe and use that in replace as broth to also make it vegetarian :) Thanks so much for sharing and for the inspiration.

    I love when my husband tosses around ideas for recipes :) This soup is a total winner – it looks so cozy and comforting. My kiddos are sick and this is just the soup to help them get back on their feet. Love the potato and leek combo!

    Gorgeous swirl work Cynthia! And I wish I was having a bow of this right now. It’s chilly in San Diego, and I’m feel a little under the weather. PS. I could probably sprinkle those breadcrumbs on everything. SO good.

    Such a gorgeous soup Cynthia! I love the sound of the whole head of roasted garlic, and potato-leek sounds like such a comforting combination for the colder weather. And your bowls are incredibly cool – as is the swirly crouton topping. Great backstory too – my best ideas seem to come when daydreaming (or half night-dreaming? don’t know) on the verge of sleep!

    You and B2 make me so happy–I love hearing those stories. And this soup is gorgeous and I love that you said that there’s a “honking big leak” in there. BEST. Moses would go nuts for this soup, so I’m obviously bookmarking this for a rainy day (or just a really cold one).

    I love LOVE potato soup and potato everything. I made one for my blog recently and I’m not lying i ate the whole pot. I’m definitely adding this to my list because you have used the best amount of garlic. I approve.

    This is seriously the perfect kind of soup I would make if I were sick and under the weather. BTW, these photos are absolutely incredible!!! What kind of camera did you use for these photographs??
