by Lauren

There are about as many versions of chicken noodle soup recipes as there are cute puppy videos online but this is my favorite version. Simple, healthy, and determined to knock out your cold or flu.

My mom used to give me chicken and stars soup as a kid. I loved that stuff. The best reason to be sick was to have Campbell’s chicken and stars soup. I haven’t had it for a very long time but I’m sure that salty … Read more...
