Chicken Noodle Soup



I know it's summer but it hasn't been as hot here and I was wanting chicken noodle soup. My tummy hasn't felt great today. Not sure if it was something I ate or a virus. And one of the things I like to eat when my tummy doesn't feel as good (once I feel like eating anyway) is potatoes diced and boiled in chicken broth. So I thought why not chicken noodle soup!

I decided to use my crockpot because I like to make a large amount at a time. That also helped not heat the house up so I can enjoy soup.



My favorite noodles to use in chicken noodle soup is the real homemade dried noodles. I found these at Kroger. They're a bit more expensive so we don't eat them often.

When I make this soup, I've never used a recipe. So amounts are not exact and can be played with depending on your liking.

Chicken Noodle Soup

3 cans of chicken broth
3-4 cups of water
2-3 tbsp of chicken base
2-3 cups of diced potatoes
16 oz bag of frozen veggies
2-3 cups of extra veggies of your choice (I added extra corn and green beans)
2-3 cups of diced, cooked chicken
8 oz of noodles
salt and pepper to taste

Add diced potatoes, veggies, chicken broth, water and base to the crockpot. Cook on high for 6-8 hours. I just checked occasionally to see if the potatoes were cooked. When the potatoes are cooked, add your diced chicken and noodles and cook for another 30 minutes to an hour. Just whenever the noodles get done. When you add the chicken and noodles check seasoning and adjust if needed.

This soup is so good. It's great leftover also! I will warn you that this recipe makes a ton. So you might cut it in half. But I love to have leftovers and eat it for a few days cause it is so yummy! The kids love it! Much better than what you can get in a can!

Happy eating!

We must be soup sistas! I did a post about homemade chicken noodle soup too, and guess what... I use Amish style noodles too! They really hold up in the soup, don't they?

Hope you're feeling better!

A Civil War Recipe..... Oatmeal Pie

Princess came home with an assignment to to a Civil War project. There were several options but she and I always gravitate to the ones that involve cooking. So we chose to make a recipe from the Civil War time to share with her class. Can I just say how grateful I am for the internet when it comes to these school projects? We looked online and found many different recipes. I wanted one that used ingredients I already had on hand and hopefully one that would be a bit tasty.

I finally found a forum where people were sharing Civil War recipes and someone had shared one for Oatmeal Pie from Charleston, South Carolina. Apparently, during the Civil War, pecans were in short supply. So oatmeal was subbed for pecans to make a sort of mock pecan pie.

This recipe is very tasty and really easy. It does remind me of a pecan pie, but at the same time a little reminiscent of an apple crisp because of the oatmeal and the cinnamon. Very delicious! I'm hoping her class really enjoys it. She said t…

Lemon Chicken Artichoke Soup

There is a take and bake place in town that has the most amazing lemon chicken artichoke soup. I decided to try to make a copy of it at home. This soup isn’t exactly like the one at the local shop here, but it’s close. This recipe is so good and highly addictive! I encourage you to try it as soon as you can!

Lemon Chicken Artichoke Soup

Ingredients:
½ stick of butter
1 tbsp oilive oil
5 cloves of garlic, minced
2 yellow onions, diced

2-3 cups of cooked chicken breasts, diced
1 tsp of dried oregano
8 cups of reduced sodium chicken broth
2 cups of half & half
Salt and pepper to taste

Salt-Free Ranch Dressing Mix

I don't know about you but I really enjoy ranch dressing. The stuff in the bottle is okay, but if you look at the ingredients it contains some not so good stuff like MSG and added sugar. It also has a lot of added sodium. I'm trying to watch my sodium so I decided to make a salt-free ranch mix, then I can control the salt whenever I make the dressing or add it to a recipe. It's super easy to make your own ranch mix. If you make a batch of this up, you can have it already on hand to make ranch dressing or add it into other recipes. Let's get started!

Salt-free Ranch Dressing Mix

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp of dried parsley
4 tsp of dried dill
4 tsp of onion powder
4 tsp of minced dried onion
2 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of ground black pepper

Combine the spices in a bowl and from here you can process them for a bit in a mini food processor to mix well and make some of the parsley smaller or you can use a coffee grinder as a spice grinder. Then place in a container and …
