Soul-Satisfying Chicken Noodle Soup

Soul Satisfying Chicken Noodle Soup | emilylevenson.com

Homemade chicken noodle soup cures what ails you, even if that’s just hunger pains. It’s hearty, it’s filling, and it’s just what the doctor ordered. So hunker down with a steaming hot bowl of this soul-satisfying chicken noodle soup you’ll be ready to take on whatever comes your way.  The first time I attempted to make chicken noodle soup from scratch, I was 6 weeks pregnant and craving all thing chicken. So I called My Mama and asked her for the low-down on how to make my own stock and soup. She was more than happy to oblige, albeit a little weirded out that I was craving it at the tail end...

Egg Pasta Soup

It’s been so long since I’ve posted a recipe post (aside from that one about the best salad dressing ever), that I kind of forget what’s involved. Like the ridiculous amount of photos it takes to get enough “good ones” to pull together a post. I also forget about the banter that accompanies the post and has some tangential connection to the recipe, but not really. So how about we forget all of that and talk about the soup. My mom used to make this when I was a kid, and it turns out that it’s been a family recipe since the Depression Era. It was cheap to make —...

Buffalo Chickpea Chili

Buffalo Chickpea Chili | gluten free, dairy free, vegan

It would seem that the floodgates have opened and I am now a fiend for anything buffalo and chickpea related. It all started out so innocently. I was looking for menu ideas for the week and stumbled upon a delicious sounding buffalo chicken chili. I was all over it. The Hubster, on the other hand, was not. Never one to be swayed by one measly ingredient, I decided that chickpeas would be a fine substitute for the chicken. The Hubster wasn’t immediately convinced by the idea. He felt like the chicken was too integral to the overall meal. It wasn’t until I reminded him of our other forays into buffalo...

Tuscan Bean Soup

Tuscan Bean Soup

The Hubster and I always seem to go back and forth about soup being on our weekly menu. I love it because it’s quick, easy, and filling. A nice switch from some of the heavier, heartier dishes we’ve been having over the winter. He, on the other hand, never wants it. And tells me that it’s simply not filling enough for him to have as dinner. As it turns out, this Tuscan Bean Soup is a fantastic compromise. Easy enough for me to whip together at 8 months pregnant. Filling enough for him to enjoy for dinner. HOO. RAY. The soup was delicious on it’s own. It was even more...

Roasted Butternut Squash + Apple Soup

roasted butternut squash and apple soup

The library and I have become quite close over the last year. And by close, I totally mean BFFs. I love the library. I spend hours perusing her stacks—looking over books, DVDs, cookbooks—and gaining inspiration. I see her weekly. And she fills me up with a piles of books. I, in turn, soak up everything she has to offer and come back for more. She kind of reminds me of the Giving Tree. I only hope she gets as much out of our relationship as I do. Something tells me the feeling is pretty darn mutual. My last bounty included a few cookbooks. Most notably one from Mark Bittman: The...
