These last few weeks have been beyond hectic. So I've been relying on simple meals, to make life a little easier. I first fell in love with this recipe, when I was a Pampered Chef consultant. We made this soup, at a team meeting and it was fabulous! I've been wanting to make it since then, but never really took the time to make it, even though it is easy to put together.

The original recipe uses the Deep Covered Baker, one of The Pampered Chef's stoneware pots, but you can easily make this using the oven for the croutons and a regular pot for the soup. The link to the original recipe, from The Pampered Chef, can be found here. Today I will share a way to make the soup, using everyday kitchen pots and pans.

My daughter who isn't a big fan of tomato based sauces said, it was very delicious. My son and I finished the soup in two days, enjoying the leftovers for lunch the next day. We ate all the croutons I had put onto the soup the day I made it, so when we reheated, we added more croutons before eating it. So make extra croutons if you can ;)


 






Chicken Parmesan Soup
adapted from The Pampered Chef

1 demi baguette (or half of a regular baguette)
2 Tbs olive oil
3 Tbs Pampered Chef Garlic and Herb seasoning, divided ***
1 1/2 C chicken stock
1- 14.5 oz can tomato sauce
1- 14.5 oz can Italian seasoned diced tomatoes
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 C cooked chicken, cut into cubes
1/2 C grated Parmesan
1 C mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut baguette into bite size cubes and toss with olive oil and 1 tsp Garlic and Herb seasoning. Spread evenly onto a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes; until bread begins to brown. Set aside.

In a pot, combine the chicken stock, remaining Herb and Garlic seasoning, tomato sauce, garlic and chicken. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in Parmesan. Top soup with half the mozzarella, followed by half the croutons. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella over soup, cover and let sit 5 minutes. Serve soup with remaining croutons.

*** if you don't have PC Herb and Garlic Seasoning, simply use a combination of 1 Tbs garlic powder, 3/4 Tbs oregano, 3/4 Tbs basil and 1/2 Tbs red pepper flakes

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
