Sippin’ Soup when you’re sick

Disclosure:  I received the Organic Soups from Campbell’s in order to facilitate this review, however, opinions are 100% my own.


Hello friends, you know how it is when you don’t feel well, the last thing you want to do is head into the kitchen and cook.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I love cooking for my husband and sons and enjoy preparing meals for my YouTube Channel segment, Brunch with Blake.  However,  after returning from our road trip to Virginia Beach I began to get sick and that’s something that does not happen to me.  I am normally a very healthy person and can’t even remember the last time I had the sniffles.

Campbell's Organic Soup Review AVI

Fortunately, I had a few containers of Campbell’s Organic Soups on hand, so on Sunday, I warmed up a container of Chicken Noodle soup then curled up on the couch to rest and relax.  The Campbell’s Organic Chicken Noodle Soup is only 100 calories, however, the sodium content is 690 mg, therefore, if you are watching your intake, I suggest you add water to thin it out. 

The ingredients in the 17 oz containers are as follows:


Organic Chicken Stock, Organic Carrots, Organic Chicken Meat, Organic Egg Noodles, Organic Wheat Flour, Organic Eggs, Organic Egg Whites, Organic Celery, Organic Potato Starch, Water, Organic Chicken Flavor, Salt, Organic Onions, Organic Chicken Fat, Organic Sugar, Organic Carrot Juice Concentrate, Organic Spice, Organic Rice Starch, Organic Yeast Extract, Organic Onion Juice Concentrate, Organic Garlic, Organic Flavoring, Organic Dehydrated Carrot, Organic Tomato Paste, Organic Dehydrated Garlic, Organic Tumeric, and Organic Canola Oil.


Organic Tomato Puree (water, organic tomato paste), water, organic diced tomatoes in organic tomato juice, organic heavy cream from organic milk, organic tapioca starch, organic sugar, contains less than 2% of organic basic, sea salt, organic spice.

One 17 oz container filled the mug and was a delicious tasting soup.  I will stock up with more because Malik will be home next week!

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!

Friday Foodie Feature – Fiesta Chicken

Hello Friends and Happy Crocktober Fri-Yay!

I missed a few Friday Foodie Features last month but the timing is now right with the official start of Autumn. October begins the season of football, family and comfort foods and it also means a return to my all time favorite way to make a meal and that is with the Crock Pot or Slow Cooker.

It wasn’t too long ago that there were only a few Slow Cooker Seasonings available at the grocery stores, now there are several more options available on the supermarket shelves.  I’ve tried a few of the new ones by McCormick’s and the Fiesta Chicken was a hit in my house, my men loved it – ‘ole


  • 1 can of black beans
  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes
