Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

I altered a recipe to fit the ingredients that I had and made some wonderful chicken noodle soup. I'll give you the altered version.

Chicken pieces equivalent to a full breast
4 cups water
2 tsp chicken base (bullion)
2 Tbsp dried onion
1/2 tsp celery salt
1 bay leaf
1 cup carrots (can use frozen)
homemade egg noodles

Combine chicken, water, chicken base, onion, celery salt and bay leaf in a pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer gently for 30 - 45 minutes until chicken is fork tender. Remove chicken and set aside. Strain broth, removing onions and bay leaf. Return broth to pot and add prepared noodles and carrots (at this point you could also add potatoes and celery). Cook until tender.

Yummy soup!

While the broth was simmering I made some Homemade Egg Noodles.

What a fun idea! Thanks for sharing with me!

I, too have been going back to cooking more from scratch. It sure is a lot of work, but tastes great and tons less expensive. Recently I learned how to make french bread and lion house rolls. We love them!! If you want I could share the recipes or check out the food storage deals blog on my blog, that's where I got them. Actually now that I think of it the french bread is from Melanie foods class from school. I liked that one better!

Hi Jennie. This is Karli over at "The World Spins Madly On". I am not really an expert on blog backgrounds but all I did was visit this website:

She has some fun and easy blog layouts. Mine is a three column layout. You need to make sure that your blogger template is on the simplest layout they have, which I think yours is. Then then any other template you choose from another designer should work just fine. I just played around with mine until I got it to look like I wanted it.

I don't know a thing about HTML so whatever I did was very, very basic.

Good luck and hopefully this helped you some. If not then feel free to e-mail me at
