Recipe from: Tini (my sister)

Today I'm so excited to introduce you to my sister... Christina. Alright, alright...I call her Tini... and I suppose since I love my readers so much, you can call her that as well! I'm so excited to have her be a part of my "Blogiversary"!! Not only is my sister, a wife, a mother to 5 little ones (3 boys, 2 girls), a crafter and lover of all things fabric.... but she is also AMAZING in the kitchen. She puts me to shame. For all the cooks out there, here's a yummy recipe for you to try! Since it's nearly lunch time here in Korea...this post makes me super hungry!

Cream of Chicken & Wild Rice Soup


1 large onion, chopped

1 large carrot, chopped

1 celery rib, chopped

¼ cup butter

½ cup flour

8 cups chicken broth

3 cups cooked wild rice

1 cup cubed, cooked chicken

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

1 cup evaporated milk

¼ cup sniped chives


~ In a large saucepan sauté onion, carrot and celery in butter until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually, add broth and stir.

~ Stir in chicken, rice, salt and pepper.

~ Bring to boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes until thickened. Stir in milk; cook 3-5 minutes longer.

~ Garnish with chives (or cracked pepper)

Yields 10 servings.

Pin It!


  1. That's sounds super yummm... I'll just have to figure out something to use in place of the flour since my darling husband is gluten intolerant ~ Cindy B in PC :O)

  2. I am salivating! Will print that out and try it ASAP. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Mmmm! I'll be adding this to my grocery list for this week!
