Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
This is the best recipe. Made it three times this chilly winter and it's a hit every time. It's a filling meal with fresh bread and a side salad! No major changes - just personal preference: 1) I do add diced carrots & celery - they add some color 2) I used Uncle Bens Classiques Long Grain & Wild Rice mix - it has the seasoning packet and a dried veggies packet. 3) the flour and butter for the roux can be reduced...both for calories sake & the thickness 4) I've used milk and half and half in place of the heavy cream and both still make a very thick soup without the added calories. 5) I don't add any salt and used Campbell's 30% reduced sodium broth - the seasoning packet in the rice offers plenty of salt. I'll be sad winter is almost over (NOT) as this is really more a fall/winter meal! Would be great to take to an après ski party or winter potluck! Oh, and it does continue to thicken up - add a little more chicken broth and it won't dilute the flavor!!

Beef Wellington

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
as a substitution for anyone not liking pate, lay slices of proscuitto out flat, spread the sauteed mushrooms out and wrap it around the filet/tenderloin. Definitely reccomend searing the meat first
