Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Copycat Recipe - Pinned says this copycat recipe is so easy to make and tastes a million times better than the original! I agree! I ditched the spinache and used kale as in the original version. Also subbed fat free 1/2 & 1/2 for the cream. SOOOO good! Can't wait to make it again. I probably went heavier on the potatoes and sausage as this was our main course. You just can't go wrong when making a cream soup with bacon and potatoes!
Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup -creamy and delicious says pinner. I used only thyme and rosemary, but will decrease each next time. I also used an Uncle Ben's wild rice mix and subbed non-fat half & half for the heavy cream. Good but nothing special. I will be trying some of the other dozen wild rice soups on my Pinterest Good Eats board before settling on this one.

Crock Pot Sesame Chicken. Yummy! I placed frozen tenders in the fridge overnight then cut the part frozen chicken into bite-sized pieces with kitchen scissors. Easy! Changes: I used half the soy sauce, twice the sesame seeds and skipped the ginger. Delicious!
