Our kitchen table is round, the wood showing little nicks of wear and tear from years of breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks, not to mention toys and textbooks and homework and projects of all kinds. It’s been well used and well loved, and even the chairs have been replaced over the years. But the table remains, and I am constantly tidying up, reminding the children to bring their toys upstairs and clear books off the table.

It’s when the table is cleared and set for dinner that I can finally relax. Knowing that we, as a family, can gather around the table for dinner is more important than my kids realize. It is the reason I won’t allow our schedules to be overrun by activities and sports, it’s the reason I always want to be home by the dinner hour.

I know how fortunate we are to know that there will be a meal, every single night. I always say a prayer of thanks that there is food on the table, whether it is a simple sandwich or an elaborate roast. With 1 in 6 Americans facing hunger today, it can be quite sobering.

When I learned about The Pampered Chef’s Round-Up from the Heart Campaign, I wanted to get involved. Since 1991, the campaign encourages their guests to “round-up” their product orders to the nearest dollar or more, and funds are distributed to Feeding America. Since the program’s inception, over $24 million has been contributed.

Chicken and Herb Spaetzle Soup | www.kitchenconfidante.com | Homemade Spaetzle is easy and fun!

Nourish. This word is printed on the new Round-Up from the Heart Soup Bowls. For each limited edition bowl purchased, the Pampered Chef contributes $2 to Feeding America. I thought about what I would want to serve in these bowls, and I knew right away that it would have to be Chicken and Herb Spaetzle Soup.

Homemade spaetzle – have you ever tried it? My daughter fell in love with these miniature dumplings when we ate at an old German restaurant in San Francisco a couple of years ago, and she has been begging me to make it ever since. Part of her love for spaetzle is surely a bit of pride for her heritage, but the other part is the fact that it is impossible for a child to dislike a dumpling! For me, spaetzle is comfort food, and in a chicken soup, I can’t think of anything more comforting on a chilly autumn day.

Making homemade spaetzle is perhaps just as fun as eating it, and surprisingly easy. If you don’t have a spaetzle maker, do not fret. A colander works, or even a box grater with 1/4 inch holes. Part of the fun is that they don’t look perfect, even if they taste perfect.

Chicken and Herb Spaetzle Soup

Serves 4. | Prep: 30 minutes | Cook: 30 minutes

If you’ve never tried making homemade spaetzle, you’re in for a wonderful surprise. It’s easy! And fun. And the whole family will love it.

Ingredients

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

3 large eggs

3/4 cup whole milk

4 teaspoon fresh herbs (e.g. thyme, parsley, etc), divided

1/2 tablespoon olive oil

3 carrots, finely diced

2 stalks celery, finely diced

8 cups chicken stock

2 bone-in chicken breasts

1/2 onion, skin on

kosher salt

freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Make the spaetzle dough by whisking together the flour, salt, pepper and nutmeg in a large bowl. In a separate small bowl, beat the eggs with the milk until well combined. Add the egg mixture to the flour, and using a wooden spoon or spatula, gently stir together until you have a sticky dough. Stir in 3 teaspoons of the fresh herbs. Let it sit in the refrigerator while you start the soup. This can even be done the night before.

Start the soup: In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the carrots and celery and cook, 2 minutes. Add the chicken stock, chicken breast and onion, bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes, or until the chicken is poached. Remove the onion and didscard. Take the chicken out of the pot, and when it has cooled slightly, remove the bone and skin and discard. Shred the chicken and return to the soup. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Using a spaetzle maker or colander, pass the dough through the holes and drop it into the water. The dumplings will cook quickly and float to the top. Use a slotted spoon to retrieve the spaetzle and transfer it to the soup. If you wish, you can also drop the spaetzle directly into the soup pot. Stir in the remaining teaspoon fresh herbs.

Serve the soup immediately.

    When feeding my family, mostly I choose to make some pasta or another. When growing up, my mother served lots of potatoes, so when I moved out I vowed never to serve boiled potatoes and started to try all sorts of foods. Sometimes I return to my parents’ home and make dinner for them and my two brothers. They love my penne with home made mushroom sauce with chicken. I don’t have a go-to recipe for this, but use the herbs and spices I just feel like using, according to my mood and what I just picked from my herb graden. Every time it is a success, and every one (including me!) takes seconds. 

    Thank you for sharing a bit of your personal life with every post. Have a lovely sunday.

    Matzoh ball soup.  We had it on two occasions: 1) the holidays 2) if we were sick. It felt like a special occasion dish, but it’s so simple to make. So comforting and still is – now I crave it regularly. My mom would always add fresh dill and black peppercorns to the broth for added flavor, along with celery, carrots and onion. I still love it. It’s the best soup on a cold day and now I make it for my husband when he’s sick. :)

    I love putting a roast with onions, carrots and potatoes in my crock pot or in the oven and letting it cook all day. When we get ready to sit down as a family for Sunday dinner, the roast is so tender it almost melts in your mouth. I would love to have The Pampered Chef Rockcrock Dutch Oven to cook this in. This would be nice enough to put on the table and serve out of. I love Pampered Chef products. I would love to win a giveaway like the one you are giving.

    Enjoy cooking many items for my family but the two “winners” are Broccoli Casserole that I am “required” to bring to family cover dish gatherings. I swear if I didn’t bring it, they wouldn’t let me in. It is very easy to make but they love it…even those who really don’t like broccoli. I make it in my Pampered Chef Large Stone Casserole and take it in my Pampered Chef insullated tote (I wish they still offered those) and it is still piping hot when I get across town. The second is a new addition to my standards but it is a “keeper”. Mediteranean Chicken in my Deep Dish covered baker. Who knew you could have an amazing tasting juicy chicken dish in 30 min from the MICROWAVE? REALLY? Yep.. it is a winner EVERY TIME. I don’t always use the flat bread/pizza serving, sometimes over pasta, or with seasoned rice I even made Lettuce wraps for a outside picnic and they were a total SMASH. Something magical happens when you put the red onions, the Kalamato Olives, the sundried tomatoes and the Pampered Chef Greek Seasonings in the Deep Dish Covered Baker and top it with the Chicken… I don’t know exactly what happens under that lid but I know it is MAGIC for sure… CAUSE, I don’t really cook that well LOL

    My mom used to make “poor man cakes” for us as kids. They are steam cakes with a caramel sauce that my great grandmother fed her kids during the Great Depression. Basically flour and water, they are extremely cheap but very filling. When we fell on tougher times, these cakes were served often for dessert to ease the hollow bellies. They still mean so much to me!

    Family favorites that have been passed down, such as: Uncle John’s mother’s Ricotta Gnocci, or my grandfather’s corned beef sandwiches.  Matzoh Ball Soup, all with homemade bread. A Roasted chicken with mashed potatoes, gravy and rolls or challah is always a special & warm meal.  I’m sorry I can’t choose one. I’ve been disabled by a neck/spine injury (awaiting surgery), so have been able to cook only a few times a month during the last 2 years – My favorite thing to do for my family is to make them a nice dinner full of love.  We do eat together at the table every night, which I treasure. :)

    Baked potato soup. It takes a lot of work, but it’s such a hearty meal and we all love to eat it year round :)

    big family meals with things brought in from everyone, like on holidays and special occasions!  there are always old favorites (like my mom’s or my gramma’s stuffing) and new things to try!

    Chicken and dumplings. I used my mom’s recipe and its all from scratch, even the noodles! All of my kids love it and it just means a lot to me to be able to make it for my family!

    There are so few dishes I make that my entire family of 6 will eat.  I would have to say that I struggled for years to make a great biscuit and I can finally do that every time.  That’s a definite crowd pleaser.

    Homemade pizza as it has been a tradition that has been passed down through the ggenerations.  We take time as a family to make then eat the pizza together.

    Freshly baked sourdough bread is the dish that means the most to me because it’s a tradition that was passed down in my family. The entire process-from the mixing to the eating-this has been a huge part of keeping up tradition in my family.

    Recipe means most to my family is Fried catfish with my own breading, mashed potatoes and honey carrots.
    Cooking for my family and all of us eating together is greatest thing a family can share.
