Coconut Chicken & Shrimp Soup

chicken & shrimp soupI can thank Thai food, in part, for my friendship with Chef Danielle Turner of CookingClarified.com.

As staffers at a non-profit in Washington, DC, we used to hang out after work at a nearby Thai restaurant sampling Pad Thai, laab, crab rangoon, and talking about everything from pop culture to politics to – you guessed it – food.

She’s also a fantastic cook; my family still raves about some of the meals she’s thrown together.

So Chef Danielle’s recipe for coconut chicken & shrimp soup, which is based on the shrimp and lemongrass soup known in Thailand as Tom Yum soup, is also a great reminder of how food and friendship can go hand in hand.

Why not put together a pot of soup and invite over your best friend to share a meal and a conversation?

Chicken and Dumplings Soup

Chicken and Dumplings SoupFor today’s recipe, we’re sticking close to home: the Southern and Midwestern United States.

Chicken and dumplings soup is believed to have originated in these two areas of the country during the Great Depression when home chefs were trying to make the most of the resources they had.

But this dish is also popular in French Canada and is similar in some ways to Chinese wonton soup and Iran’s gondi soup which has matzoh ball-like dumplings.

This chicken and dumplings recipe is from Chef Danielle Turner at www.CookingClarified.com.

Go to Chef Danielle’s website and get the details on how to make this economical yet mouth-watering soup.
