  1. Just a quick note: with the 1st soup, most recipes for this call for cream of chicken, which is a shortcut you can take instead of using butter, flour, and milk. You can sub 1 can of cream of chicken plus 1 can of milk. I'm not a huge fan of the canned stuff, so that's why I took the long way with this recipe. 🙂

  2. My mom always served chili over rice. I didn't have it any other way growing up. We had a large family with 6 kids, so I'm sure it helped stretch the food budget because she always put ground beef in her chili. I really love your channel. Thank you for all that you share with your food, your family, and your faith.🙏🏿🙏🏼🙏🏿🙏🏿❤️

  3. Love these recipes. I love a good hot soup on a cold day. A few weeks ago I made loaded potato soup. I grabbed a recipe offline and used what I had on hand. It was so good. My first time ever making it. My family didn’t really eat it they are so picky. My husband isn’t a soup person at all unless it’s crab soup. We live in md. That chicken noodle soup recipe I definitely have to try and see if my son eats it.
