Chicken Corn Soup

Chicken Corn Rivel SoupThis was another childhood staple: good ole chicken corn soup. Oh my! How I loved making those doughy balls with my grandmother and eating them before they were even in the soup! You can eliminate the doughy ‘rivels’ from the recipe (or substitute potatoes instead) and you’ll still end up with a delicious hearty soup.

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot PieTraditionally, the Pennsylvania Dutch chicken pot pie recipe is actually less of a pie and more of a soup or stew. This recipe is most like what our grandparents used to make.

It’s a little time-consuming to prepare since you have to boil off the chicken and make your own noodles. But in the end, it’s some serious comfort food. If you’re running short on time (or just feeling lazy) you can substitute cooked bow tie pasta for the homemade noodles, like my grandmother used to do.

White Bean Chicken Chili

A hearty soup that’s perfect for a cold winter day — or night. Top it off with some shredded cheddar, avocado, cilantro and spicy jalapeños (for a little more heat) and serve with some warm corn bread for a complete meal. Mmmm-mmm!

Nathan’s Favorite Foil Packet Dinner

Foil Packet SurpriseNathan absolutely loves these easy-to-make foil packet dinners. I like that I can always vary ingredients to make them a little bit different – like a little foil surprise every time you open one up. 😉

We especially enjoy taking these on camping trips and cooking them over an open fire, but they’re just as easy to make in the oven. Enjoy!
