Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Soup

Creamy Chicken And Mushroom Soup

It's officially become soup, sweater and boots weather here.
We went from the driest, hottest summer I ever remember to cold and wet within less then 2 days! 
Monday I had asked Colt if he rather have bread or cornbread? He replied with,"Cornbread and soup would be great!"
Little did he know I was already planning on making this Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Soup.
It's the perfect soup on a cold day and just happens to be one of my favorites from a little restaurant called Cristianos Pizza in town.
I could seriously eat this soup everyday for the rest of my life and be totally satisfied! 
It's taken a few tries to get the flavors of Cristianos Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Soup right and according to Colt this versions even better but he might be bias since he is married to me so you'll have to decide for yourself! 
Actually I would have never even bothered trying to recreate this deliciousness if it wasn't for the fact they only make Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Soup on Tuesdays for lunch and occasionally if I'm lucky on Fridays which is the mystery day.
This whole Tuesdays and occasionally on Fridays just doesn't work for me a girls has craving she has to manage!  
So I made Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Soup on Monday and I savored every last bite! 
Lorna who detested mushrooms when she was little so I would tell her it was calamari to get her to eat it, (no judgement please a Mom's got to do what a Mom's go to do) declared this her new sick soup and the boys told me Monday's should be the new soup night in our house with Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Soup on the menu.
I don't think they understand I'm a food blogger and if we have the same thing for dinner every week I have nothing new to share.
I was sure I was making a large enough pot to have leftovers for once but nope every last drop was gone.
I think I'm going to start hiding my leftovers for lunch before everyone dishes up.
We are officially in that stage where people say teenagers eat you out of house and home.
I might as well give up and just start doubling recipes like I'm feeding an army!

It's hard to believe we are inching towards the end of summer! 
It seems like it had just begun as quickly as it's ending! 
With the end of summer comes Labor Day Weekend and the close of berry season.
So Sunday Supper has paired with Gallo Family Vineyards to bring you 20 tantalizing recipes to help prepare you for the long holiday weekend whether your brunching with family, camping before the rain comes or hosting a BBQ these recipes are sure to wake up your taste buds! 
One of my favorite recipes to make when the blackberries are ripe is Blackberry Buckle! 
It's a light cake loaded with tons of ripe blackberries, a hint of cinnamon, vanilla and light crumb topping.
It's a favorite in our house as dessert for breakfast, brunch, camping or a sweet treat to bring to a friends for a get together.
You can never go wrong with Blackberry Buckle, it lasted less then 24 hours in our house and Colt was already requesting I make it again.
To me that's a sign of a good thing!

Sweet And Sour Meatballs

The best recipe for Sweet and Sour Meatballs.

Praise the Lord it's Friday! 
Are you ready for the weekend? 
You should make these Sweet and Sour Meatballs this weekend and then be prepared to make them again next week because your family will be begging for more! 
Trust me, I've already been down that road! 
Just double up the meatball batch and freeze half the meatballs for later in the week! 
I've had meatballs on my mind for the last week or two since the weathers started to cool a little.
I can't seem to stop thinking about all the ways I love meatballs so I decided it was time to share the recipe for these Sweet and Sour Meatballs! 
I can't believe how many times I just said, "Meatballs!"
I was hoping to have enough leftovers to hide for lunch the next day but there was no such luck between Colt and the kids they were devoured.
The secret to these Sweet and Sour Meatballs is in the sauce.
 After a lot of trial and error over the years I've developed the perfect balance of salty, sweet and sour. 
Even Mas who proclaims to not eat cooked pineapple and was disappointed when he saw I hadn't set any aside had cleaned his plate without another peep.
If your short on time the meatballs can all be rolled ahead of time and frozen until ready to cook since  they spend a little time in the freezer anyways to help maintain their shape while cooking. 
The worst thing about these Sweet and Sour Meatballs maybe the fight at the dinner table for seconds!
