You heard the saying, fake it until you make it? Well that can apply to most things in my life except in the kitchen. My husband refers to me as a lovable mess when it comes to cooking. My friends buy me cookbooks and some even takeover my kitchen. That doesn’t mean you should decline an invitation to my house for dinner, it just means don’t expect gourmet, at least not yet. This year I’ve made a goal – note not a resolution – to become more proficient in the kitchen and expand my repertoire beyond grilled chicken and basic pasta. I’m calling this section “Recipes Even I Can Make” and I’m starting with Nana’s Easy Kosher Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe.
The first recipe I would like to share is an oldie, although I just recently learned how to make it. Nana’s Easy Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe is mostly kosher. I’m not going to claim it’s 100%, but it’s close. My great-grandmother taught my grandmother, who taught my mother, who in turn taught me. It’s not loaded with fancy herbs and roasted vegetables because, let’s face it, those luxuries did not exist when my great-grandmother or my 96-year-old grandmother was making it for her kids. What it is though – is delicious!
This chicken noodle soup recipe is so simple and easy that even I can make it! My daughter, who normally refuses to eat soup loves it and requests it often. I’ve also made it using only white meat, just make sure you buy chicken with skin and bones. You don’t have to purchase kosher chicken, I just happen to think it tastes better.

Below is the recipe. It’s simple and easy to follow. It just takes time, like all good things. Make it on a day when you don’t have to be in a million places at once. I know easier said then done. Let me know how it turns out.
