Recipe: Sweet Potato-Carrot Soup

On a rainy day like today nothing beats a hot bowl of soup to ease the chill of the cold weather.  In honor of the cold weather upon us, here’s an easy sweet potato-carrot soup to prepare. One thing you’ll definitely need to get this soup to the right consistency is an immersion blender. I purchased my Kitchen Aid blender from Target.
