Sounds fabulous...I thought I made pretty good chicken soup, but I love the white wine idea. Thanks for sharing!

You know, after your post yesterday I ended up making chicken noodle soup, too - with the added bonus of its healing properties since my son has a rotten cold right now. Mine was identical to yours (right down to the garlic and Italian seasoning) but I have never put white wine in my chicken noodle soup. I'm betting that is what put yours over the top and I'll give it a try sometime.

Thanks for sharing!


Hello ! i'm french and i have looked a translate your blog. This is very instructive, thank you ! (i'm into Blue Margueritte)


Thanks for sharing. Not sure I'll ever get to the making noodles myself level, but I always enjoy the down to earth way you explain your recipes. Even one like this that is way out of my league/ambition level. I love your blog!

Making noodles is MUCH easier and faster than it sounds. Once you do, youll be amazed at how yummy and easy they are!


" you don't get your kids drunk on chicken soup." You are so funny, Joanne. :-)

I can't wait to try this white wine tip! Wonder if it would be a nice addition to chicken pot pie as well?

The last picture looks similar to something I have that came from my grandpa's old grocery store called "Barney's Food Market." So fun! It was a baby food jar display. Each section was labeled with the different kinds of baby food. Maybe it is from an old grocery?
