A staple for any cook (good or bad) is a recipe for Chunky Chicken Noodle Soup!! It's simple, inexpensive, super tasty and insanely comforting! This is the fastest CCNS I have ever made! Not to mention the easiest. And on a rainy, drizzly day like to day, while my kiddos are down with cold, it's just what the Mommy ordered!
2  Stalks of Celery (preferably with the leafy tops) chopped
2 Carrots Chopped
1/4 yellow onion chopped
-Saute in 2-3 Tbls of Butter until soft
Pour in 6 Cups (1 3lb box or can) of Chicken stock (I use low sodium)
Sprinkle in 1 tsp Marjoram, thyme, and poultry seasoning
Bring to a boil then add:
4 Chicken tenders that have been cooked and chopped
1 1/2 cups (1/2 lb) of Wide egg noodles (or whatever kind of noodles you like or have)
Boil till noodles are tender and the sprinkle with 1 Tbl fresh Parsley!

Serve hot with Rolls and you have an instant Family Favorite!!

5-Minute Chocolate Cake

A friend shared this on Facebook and I just had to try it! Chocolate cake in 5 mins?! C'mon!!
This is the Link to the website (which is an awesome DIY Website for anything and everything)
My boys love this! Mainly  because they can help make it, or they can do it with some adult supervision (and help counting). And who doesn't love to eat stuff out of a mug?!
 It's pretty good for a cake that's made in the microwave!  A nice little indulgence!

I have found a couple things out from making this.
1-It doesn't stay all puffy and above the rim (I think that might have to do with the fact that my mugs are too big.
2-It falls fast. I took this pic maybe 10 secs after taking it out of the microwave.
3-2-3 toddler size hand fulls are the perfect amount of chocolate chips!
4-It's good. What more do you need?!
