Our Favorite Fall Recipe

Nothing says fall and cozy season at our house like Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup. It’s a family favorite and relatively easy to make. I found it years ago via Divas Can Cook, whose tag line is Southern Recipes that Anyone Can Make. Which is exactly what encouraged me to give it a try! I’m going to share the recipe here because we have made a few adjustments over the years for our particular taste but I also linked you to the original recipe above. Who knows maybe while you’re there you’ll find another new and easy recipe to try.
