I've recently found my love for cooking and baking again. My love for being in the kitchen goes way back to when I was a toddler. Some of my earliest memories center around being in the kitchen with my grandma cooking and baking. I loved spending time in the kitchen with her when I was a kid and even a teenager. And then as an adult she gifted me with a box of our favorite recipes for my kitchen. As my health has wavered so has my time in the kitchen. I haven't spent much time in the kitchen the last couple of years because my health has been so poor. But in the last few months I have regained my love for being in the kitchen. and have truly loved trying new recipes and new foods. Because of that I want to share some recipes with you! In hopes that it will encourage some of you to get back into the kitchen as well. Today I want to share a recipe for an entree and one for a dessert. I really hope to continue doing this and make it a regular thing, if this is something you enjoy seeing.
So for today's recipes I will be sharing my recipe for an AMAZING and easy Chicken Noodle Soup recipe. And a recipe for the easiest pumpkin chocolate chip cookies ever!
Chicken Noodle Soup
- 2 Cups Uncooked Egg Noodles (I prefer Reames Frozen)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3/4 cup chopped onion
- 3/4 cup chopped celery
- 1 cup sliced carrots
- 2 garlic cloves - minced
- 9 cups chicken broth (okay to use low sodium if needed)
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- Dash of dried oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken breast ( I have also used rotisserie chicken and shredded it)
In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Cook onion, celery, and carrots, butter until tender or for 5 minutes. Then add the garlic and cook for an additional minute. Pour in chicken broth and stir in noodles, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. Stir in the chicken and cook until heated through.
- 1 box of spiced cake mix
- 1 15 oz can of pumpkin (not pie filling)
- 1 package of semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350
- Put pumpkin in a bowl, stir in cake mix, add in desired amount of chocolate chips. Stir until well mixed.
Place on ungreased baking sheet. Baking times vary. For smaller cookies bake 12-14 min. For bigger cookies bake 15-18 min
