Enjoy this comforting bowl of Penne Chicken Soup. It’s like grandmas but better.

Penne Chicken Soup

School started for us this past Monday with one going into Kindergarten and the other one attending early preschool classes. The kids come home bursting with excitement and then it slowly dwindles down after dinner. The cries start right after this once they realize that they are more exhausted than what they let on.

Penne Chicken Soup

Now as parents we all just wait for the first sniffles, cold symptoms and other sicknesses that lurk around all kids at school. This is where this Penne Chicken Soup will come in handy. Think classic Chicken Noodle Soup except with a twist on the noodles.

In fact I think the kids enjoyed this soup more because of the different noodles used for this recipe. Both kids and my husband enjoyed this dish and were asking for seconds. It’s always a good sign when you are serving soup over pizza and everyone wants more of the dish.

Hummus Chicken Salad Wraps

One week to go until I’m officially a parent of a Kindergartener. Am I in freak out mode? Yes, because who wouldn’t be their first go around with a child. So many things to think about like drop off lines, drop off times, pick up, playing with kids and school lunches. Until this baby...

Caramel Macchiato Brownies

Now that I’ve got two kids in the house most days consist of the same questions over and over again. They include what are we doing today, what’s for supper and what’s for dessert? Most of these questions are asked during breakfast time and I have the faintest idea about the rest of the...

Shower Punch Ice Pops

This past weekend I was a hostess for one of my good friends at her 2nd baby shower. However, it was called a “sprinkle” instead of a shower since she didn’t need as many gifts since it was baby #2. This was my first time to even hear about this kind of baby shower...
