Chicken Noodle Soup: Every mom should have the perfect chicken noodle soup in her back pocket. While Campbell's makes a quick substitute, sometimes it doesn’t quite hit the spot. Intrigued? Inspireddreamer.com has a quick and easy crock pot recipe for the perfect chicken noodle soup. The recipe calls for egg noodles, but if that’s not your cup of tea then substitute the noodles for an alternative. Don’t forget the crackers or crusty bread – what soup would be complete without one of those great sides?

New England Clam Chowder: You don’t have to be a big seafood lover to appreciate this recipe. There’s nothing like warming up, after a cold winter day, with a piping bowl of delicious chowder. Bloglovin.com has a great recipe that serves about eight. Remember, before serving to remove the bay leaf.

Apple Cider: Want a delicious cider, that’s a 100% made from scratch? Gimmesomeoven.com has the perfect recipe. Instead of just using one type of apple, mix it up and slice up a variety – you can zest it up a little by adding a few oranges into the mix too! Once you’ve mashed and strained try adding brown sugar and maple syrup to sweeten the mix. Not only will your house smell wonderful but you’ll have a cider to sip on that’s out of this world.

Chicken Parmesan: Emilybites.com has a super easy chicken parm recipe that will have your family asking for seconds and maybe even thirds. There is a little bit of prep work – you’ll need to coat and bread your chicken, but that’s minimal compared to most other chicken parm recipes. If you’re counting calories or Weight Watcher points, you can opt to use spaghetti squash in place of the noodles mentioned in the original recipe.

Texas Chili: Everyone loves a good chili and myrecipemagic.com has the perfect recipe. The great thing about chili is there are so many options to add and chose from. Feel free to add green chilies, cheese, sour cream, green onions or even a bag of Frito corn chips.

Serve this delicious dinner over brown rice along with stemmed broccoli and/or cauliflower for added protein. The recipe says to cook on high for three hours, however if you’re going to be away from the house for a longer period you can turn to low and cook for six hours instead.
