Lady & Sons Cream of Artichoke Soup by Paula Deen

I have had Paula Deen's The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook for well over 10 years and have never cooked anything from it.Now, I know I am going to offend some readers but I am not that big a fan of Ms. Dean. I am sure she has a lovely heart but she kinda annoys me. Just sayin' . . .

I decided to make this recipe for Cream of Artichoke Soup.Oh lordy, look at that butter.Adjustments to recipe:
1 - I did not add salt and yet, this soup was a bit salty. Next time, I will use low-sodium chicken broth.
2 - The recipe does not call for an immersion blender but I did use it to break up some of the artichoke.

This soup was so easy to make and quite delicious that I will make it again.

Thanks Ms. Deen.

Believe it or not, I've never had an artichoke... not even that famous dip! The soup sounds good and easy:@)

ooooohhhh....that sounds good AND easy. You know, I feel the same way about Rachel Ray- She just kind of annoys me for some reason!;>) xo Diana

I agree with you...Paula Deen sorta annoys me as well. Really, I'm afraid to use her recipes as I have high cholesterol and when I see all the butter, eggs, and sugar in her recipes I think I don't want to end up a diabetic too!

The recipe does look good though.

Did you hear that Paula was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes? I think she had to go on a diet herself...I wonder if she cut down on butter intake. Thanks for testing this recipe for us. I have a friend that lives in Savannah and she thinks that Paula gets other folks to actually write her recipe books.
