This has been a pretty busy month for me posting with The Secret Recipe Club. All amazing recipes, all a chance to help out where it was needed. This week is my originally assigned blog, It's Yummy To My Tummy! I really enjoyed browsing Heather's blog. She says that she de-stresses through cooking and baking and her blog serves as a collection of recipes to share with others. Well, I am so happy that she shared them with us, because I found this amazing Creamy Chicken & Gnocchi Soup recipe.
I especially loved that she made her own gnocchi from scratch. That is the only way we eat it in our home. My thought was, if she took the time to make each piece of gnocchi then the soup must be good! And yes, yes it is.
This was the perfect bowl of soup for the rainy and windy Oregon weather we had a few weeks ago. Gnocchi gives me a "during naptime" project, perfect for a dreary afternoon.
The most time consuming part of this soup is assembling the little gnocchi army. But, you can just as easily buy it pre-made. I promise not to judge.
