Ah, this chicken soup! It has so many things going for it, not the least of which is that it cooks up low and slow all day long in your slow cooker, which means that you will walk in to your kitchen at the end of the day and it will dawn on you that yes, dinner is pretty much almost made. Along with that, it’s packed with carrots and celery and sweet onion and potatoes, so not only is it scrumptious and super easy, it’s also good and good for you. It’s the soup that keeps on giving. Let’s make it!
I do love me some chicken and dumplings in all kinds of ways – the classic version, the soup version – you name it, if it has “chicken” and “dumpling” in the title I am THERE. So you know that this was one of the very first recipes I needed to adapt for my Instant Pot, because the only thing better than chicken and dumplings is a recipe that makes chicken and dumplings in a super speedy way. Ready to get this comfort food favorite on the table lightning-fast? Let’s make it!

I do love a good pot pie, and I love it even more when the pot pie crust is made out of creamy, dreamy mashed potatoes. And I also love dishes that I can make ahead and then just bake up later when things are busy. I get all of this and more with this easy recipe for chicken pot pie with mashed potato crust…the more is the delicious taste of tender chicken with carrots and celery in a light herbed sauce, and did I mention the mashed potato topping?

Oh, I love and adore this soup. For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, til death do us part, I love this soup, and true love lasts forever. I first posted this recipe in the very early days of my blog, and except for the pictures and a couple of little tweaks, this recipe HAS in fact lasted forever…or for the past 8 years, anyhow. Packed with veggies, pasta and little baby meatballs, this soup has something for everyone. Ready for some soup happiness? Let’s make it!
I have said it before and I’ll say it again: I am not a good sharer when it comes to my favorite eats. I want my own personal bowl of popcorn, I want my own personal French toast muffin, and do not even THINK of snagging one of my pieces of bacon. Which is why I am head over heels with this recipe for beef and blue cheese pot pies, because this delectable conglomeration of beef and veggies cooked up in a beer and mustard sauce and laced with blue cheese and covered in pastry gets made in individual little dishes. Meaning I get my very own. Meaning you get your very own. Let’s make it!
