Chicken Noodle Soup

Trying to beat the winter blues, a hefty cold or just want something heart warming and still figure (and budget) friendly? What's more comforting than homemade Chicken Noodle Soup?! This soup was super simple, delicious and very budget conscious as it's easy to freeze for future meals or individually for quick grab and go lunches.
Chicken Noodle Soup
Ingredients
48 oz. can reduced sodium chicken broth
1 lb. Whole Wheat sprial noodles (or any wide, short noodle of your choice)
1-2 cups chopped or shredded cooked chicken (rotisserre chickens are GREAT for this!)
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 stalks of celery, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup chopped white onion (or desired amount - I just like it for flavor but I'm not a huge onion person)
1 tablespoon of EVOO
1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
S&P to taste
Directions
- In a large pot, boil noodles just a little less than directed on packaging, drain and set aside
- In the pot you'll use to simmer, heat EVOO and add onion to lightly cook until transparent
- Add broth, chicken, carrots, celery and seasonings and simmer for 30-45 minutes
- Add cooked pasta and continue to simmer until it's heated through

It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing.

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz. White Chocolate, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla Directions: Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes). Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated. Stir in melted white chocolate. Fold in thawed Cool Whip Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my! But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?   Check !  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do !  Pumpkin?  Well of course !  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try! One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix
