Try the easy recipe below:



I'd like to share a "tip" for you with what to do with that chicken roast/ oven stuffer after you're "done" with it.

It is a low cost and healthy meal idea that my family and friends love!!


----Place "used" chicken carcass in a large pot covered with cold water

----Turn on high until a boil is reached; then turn down to low-med

----Throw in a few crushed cloves of garlic, 10 or more shakes of pepper, a small grab of salt to taste, and a small grab of fresh or dried parsley (no I don't measure:) !!)

----Let simmer for a few hours or more if you're home----

----Okay, now get a large colander out and place over another large pot or a bowl;

Carefully pour the soup contents through the colander.

----Allow the "colander contents" to cool; Pull off the remaining meat and put back into the soup; Discard the rest.

----I add about 1 bag (about a pound) of frozen cheese tortellini, cut up scallions and a little (or a lot) fresh spinach.

I allow to come to a slow boil until the tortellini rises to the surface; Let simmer for as long as you wish; Ladle into bowls and sprinkle a little fresh Parmesan cheese on top and WALA!---you have just created a WONDERFUL Feel Good Chicken Tortellini Soup!

*(P.S.) It tastes twice as good on day 2!!

Check out a new water drink company that was founded by Kara Goldin, a mother of four who cares about providing healthy beverages to families....she talks more below about Hint..

The idea behind Hint is simple: pure water, nature's original refreshment, accented with a hint of natural flavor.

No sugar, no artificial sweeteners: Hint is a refreshing alternative to sodas, juice and other sweetened drinks and it tastes great.

Sound good? It tastes even better.

We thank you for trying Hint, hope that you and your family enjoy it, and wish you excellent health.
