Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup
This recipe is great--although I'm glad I looked at the reviews before making it. I tweaked a couple things and this turned out beautifully. I used half low sodium/half regular organic chicken stock and a whole rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. I also found organic fresh herbs in a "poultry seasoning" bundle (rosemary, thyme, sage). Simmered the whole chicken in with the broth, the fresh herbs, and some fresh ground pepper for about 20 minutes. Removed the chicken and cut the meat into chucks. Added the chicken back with diced carrots, celery, and onion (I sauteed the celery and onion in butter first--yum!) and cornstarch thickener. I added the noodles last and let them cook in the broth, no need to cook them first. I thought the cornstarch thickener was a nice addition--it gave the broth a little more body and smoothness. My husband LOVED this recipe--and I will be using it for turkey soup at Thanksgiving this year!

Split Pea Soup with Rosemary
This soup is fantastic! I use low sodium broth and substitute ham for the bacon and it still turns out great! This soup also does really well in the crock pot, just throw everything together and set on high for 6-7 hours.
