It’s officially Spring but it’s still a bit chilly here in the Pacific Northwest. In fact, we got a surprise couple inches of snow last night so school is on a two-hour late start this morning. While the kids are out playing in the fluffy white stuff, I’m thinking about what soup I’ll be making today. Here’s […]

French Chicken in a Pot

January 26, 2012 by andrea | Comments Off on French Chicken in a Pot | Filed in Chicken, Comfort Food, French, Main Dish, Recipes

I’ve seen recipes for chicken in a pot but had never tried it myself until last week. While this recipe won’t replace my favorite roast chicken recipe, it was flavorful and super easy to make…and didn’t make a mess of my oven (like roast chicken does sometimes).  Please note that the chicken takes 1 1/2 to 2 […]

This Chicken and Orzo Soup is easy-to-make, tasty, and a great recipe for whipping up a pot of something comforting without spending hours in the kitchen. Orzo, rice-shaped pasta, is available in most grocery stores. If you can’t find it, substitute another small-shaped pasta. I used kale instead of spinach because that’s what I had on hand. […]

Smoky Chicken Chowder

October 19, 2011 by andrea | Comments Off on Smoky Chicken Chowder | Filed in Chicken, Main Dish, Recipes, Soup/Stew, Southwestern

This delicious, Southwestern-inspired chowder is hearty, slightly smoky, and a little spicy…perfect for a chilly Autumn evening! I made a few changes to the recipe but nothing that drastically altered the final dish. Instead of a jalapeno chile, I used a little more chopped chipotle chile (which adds both heat and smoky flavor to the soup), a […]

I woke up with a scratchy throat today (poor me!) so I’m doing everything in my power to fight off the crud: doses of Vitamin C, drinking a honey and cider vinegar elixer (my friend Amy swears by it), and this tasty chicken soup for lunch.  The recipe calls for smashing 3 whole scallions and slicing the ginger then simmering it […]
