a cooking blog from one foodie to another... I rarely if ever use real measurements... my recipes are more like guidelines... but along the way we usually land on something kinda delectable...

Guilt-Free Chips

I have this old cookbook.  John found it about 10 years ago in an apartment. Someone left it behind. It is Healthy Homestyle Cooking, and it has TONS of great ways to make everyday meals healthy. The author tosses in a few non-madeover recipes for good measure.  Here's one.  We tried it tonight.  AMAZ-ZUH-ZING!

Preheat oven to 350.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
Cut wonton wrappers diagonally into triangles and place them on the cookie sheet.
Spray wonton wrappers with non-stick spray.
Sprinkle them with parmesan cheese.
Bake 8-9 minutes.

The BEST Chicken Noodle Soup!!!!!

Mkay so I have been making homemade chicken noodle soup for SEVERAL years, but the stuff I made tonight!  It was the BEST I have every  made!  The secret was in the noodles. Typically they get a little mushy, but tonight I did them RIGHT!

the BEST chicken noodle soup

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
8 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
4 carrots, sliced into coins
4 stalks of celery, sliced
wide egg noodles

Place chicken in pot (my chicken breasts were still frozen and it worked JUST fine); cover with water. Boil for about 15 minutes. Remove chicken breasts and cut them into chunks.  Return chicken to pot. Add chicken broth, water, carrots, celery, garlic & pepper. Simmer for 20 - 30 minutes. Add egg noodles. Turn heat down to low. Cook until noodles are ALMOST soft, still a bit al dente. Remove the pot from the burner and cover it. Let is sit for 10 minutes.

2 lbs ground turkey in a swoosh of EVOO. Season with: minced onions (could substitute with fresh onion but I was too tired tonight), oregano, basil, garlic, and pepper.

Add 4 smalll cans diced tomatoes and another round of spices: oregano, basil, garlic and pepper.  Simmer

Add 2 cans cannellini beans. Simmer.

Serve over bowtie noodles. Garnish with Parmesan.
