Chicken Noodle Soup

Chicken noodle soup is usually a meal that I just throw together, no measuring of ingredients. Which calls for alot of taste testing. I decided that it was time for me to put together a basic recipe to make it easier the next time I make it. It turned out really good. The only bad thing or good thing depending on the way you look at it, is that it always tastes better the next day. Now why can't I remember that and make it a day in advance??
Chicken Noodle Soup
6 cups water
1-2 chicken breasts, *cooked and cut up*
1 small onion (1/4 cup), diced
5 teaspoons chicken bouillon
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup celery, chopped
3/4 cup carrots, sliced
1 medium potato, diced (optional)
*Quick Version:
Combine all ingredients except for the noodles. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in the noodles; cook until the noodles and vegetables are tender.
*Homestyle Version
Place water, boullion, onion, parsley and chicken in a pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove chicken, dice and place back into pot. Add carrots, celery, parsley. Simmer together for a while(sometimes I leave it on low for several hours, could be done in the crock pot). Stir in cream of chicken soup and bring to a boil: add diced potatoes. Cook for a few minutes and then add the noodles. Cooking until the noodles are done and vegetables are tender.
Usually I like to make my own noodles. This time I was in a time crunch and discovered these in the freezer section at Walmart.
They were really pretty good! Almost as good as my own Grandma's, who always said, "A good broth makes for good noodles!"

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
