Great-Aunt Nina's Noodles and Chicken
To a slow cooker chicken, I added an old family noodle recipe. If you want it to be more like a soup, add another quart of broth. This was a fixture at family reunions when I was a child, and the slow cooker makes it even easier.
Slow Cooker Chicken and Noodles
This chicken and noodles recipe made in the crockpot is a wonderfully easy soup to cook while at work or on a busy day. It can be made more soupy with added broth, or sometimes I like to thicken the liquid with a little water and cornstarch mixture and let it cook until thickened. Then it is good served over mashed potatoes!
Meaty Slow Cooker Jambalaya
I like to avoid frozen shrimp when I can so I am using dry cured ham instead to this delicious jambalaya! Toss the chicken, sausage, ham, vegetables, and seasonings in the slow cooker and forget about it until dinner time.
Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice
Born and raised in Louisiana, this is a Monday staple. Red kidney beans slow cooked with smoked sausage served over rice with cornbread on the side. Yum!
Hearty Lentil and Sausage Soup
Lentil soup flavored with sausage and herbs. A good hearty soup for a cold winter day.
Scallop and Shrimp Chowder
My sister-in-law brought some scallops from Nova Scotia. They are awesome in this chowder. I add the broth, potatoes, corn, and flour to the slow cooker crock the night before, store in the refrigerator, and just turn it on in the morning. Great weeknight meal.
Spicy Black Bean Vegetable Soup
Half of the black beans in this spicy soup are pureed with tomatoes, the other half are simmered with carrots, onion and kernels of corn.

Cheese Soup with Broccoli
A great Cheese Soup recipe. It can be used as a light meal with salad, but we like it best with ham.
Avgolemono is one of those soups that I've made many times, but rarely from scratch. It's usually a 'there's nothing in the house' type of thing and made with a carton of broth. Even in its quick-and-easy form it's a delicious and comforting meal, but when you use a fresh whole chicken, it becomes epic. Garnish with parsley and lemon zest.
