• Project: day 99: cooking it up/ homemade super easy (and yummy) chicken noodle soup for my sick baby
Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1. We have a sick one at home, so what better to make her feel better than homemade chicken noodle soup! As you can see, she completely downed it. So we’ll see if it helps, but it sure was yummy!!!
• Would I do it again? Yes! This soup really was too easy not to do, let alone good!
• What I would do differently: we added garlic (3 cloves) to the celery and onions after they were cooking for half the time.
• Items used: recipe from: allrecipes.com : http://allrecipes.com/recipe/quick-and-easy-chicken-noodle-soup/detail.aspx

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion

  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil

  • Project: day 7: Cooking it up/Crock pot lasagna with Herbed Garlic Bread
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2
  • Would I do it again? Yes! It was so yummy. The herbed garlic bread was probably the best home-made garlic bread out there, and the lasagna was a hit with the whole fam. I also added the italian sausage, but next time I will also add the garlic and onions :). For the bread I also moved it toward the broiler for a few additional minutes, post recommended cooking time.
