Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup

This is the winter that will never end, well it seems like it in the northeast anyway. What I love about this soup is that it’s full of flavor and healthy ingredients. We have chicken, carrots, celery and smells amazing! The rice also thickens it up really nice to full your belly and keep you warm. This soup is perfect for any time of year if you are looking for something easy and delicious. This is also great if you have leftover rotisserie chicken that you need to use up.  Continue reading “Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup”

Pumpkin Spice Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin Spice Cookies withCream CheeseFrosting

When I heard about Chobani’s new fall “Made with Chobani” campaign, where they are asking everyone to share their favorite healthy recipes that they make with Chobani, I could immediately feel my brain working away at a new recipe. The beauty about Chobani is that it is so versatile so it can be used for so many different things. (You can see how versatile Chobani is here). I decided to use one of their new fall flavors, Pumpkin Spice, and make Pumpkin Spice Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting. This is a perfect cookie for fall in Connecticut. I can munch on these while watching the fall foliage begins. The Chobani made these cookies so chewy and gave the frosting a great flavor. These are cookies that people will love you for. Enjoy the recipe below and don’t forget to share your favorite way to use Chobani!

Easy Rice Pudding

We don’t do a ton of dessert around here only because we are usually pretty full from dinner but when my husband mentioned that it had been awhile since he had rice pudding, I knew I had to make him some. I played around with a few recipes but this one is called Easy Rice Pudding for a reason, because it was super easy and it came out the best. It was the perfect level of creamy and sweet. All of the ingredients blended together perfectly and you will love it. If you are on the fence about trying to make it yourself, then this is the best starter recipe. You can adjust the seasoning as you practice more but I got no complaints from my end! Continue reading “Easy Rice Pudding”

Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved Fettuccine Alfredo. The pasta noodles mixed with that decadent sauce is one of those cheat meals that makes the next days workout worth it! This Creamy Chicken Alfredo is extra treadmill time worthy. I’ve added the chicken to this for some extra protein and I also use whole milk instead of cream to cut down a little on the calories! It doesn’t change the sauce consistency, it’s still nice and creamy!  Continue reading “Creamy Chicken Alfredo”
