Easy Orange Chicken

I think my kids could live on Panda Orange Chicken; and because there is one just down the road, they eat it a lot!  So when I spied this recipe to make a version at home I knew I couldn’t pass.  I love that this comes together and so fast and while it may not be quite as fast as the drive-thru, I feel like it’s much healthier!  My Panda-loving son thought it was great!

It’s January, do we need any more reason to enjoy a hot and delicious bowl of soup?  This Roasted-Chicken Noodle Soup takes a few shortcuts on preparation, but the result is nothing but fabulous.  To get this soup on the table in no time, I start with a rotisserie chicken and canned chicken broth.  Add a few fresh veggies and some yummy seasonings and you’ll soon be lining up for another bowl.

Crock Pot Sweet-Fire Wings

Crock Pot Sweet Fire Wings


Just in time for Super Bowl Sunday, the National Chicken Council has come out with its 2014 Wing Report.  It estimates that during the course of Sunday’s game, American consumers will devour a total of 1.25 billions wings.   Yes, that says BILLIONS-  Crazy isn't it!

With all the wing cooking and wing consuming going on, I have to confess I have never made wings myself.  So this year I decided to give it a try.  After reading and searching, I decided to follow a basic Crock Pot Method  from the Know-It-Alls {I mean that in a good way} at

{Crock Pot} Creamy Italian Chicken Tomato Soup


I really can’t say enough about this Creamy Italian Chicken Tomato Soup.  I really love it- and why not?  It’s packed with flavor, low-fat, low carb, healthy and incredibly easy to make – sounds good right?
