About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


Here's the Dish: Chicken, Lemon and Rice Soup

This is an old standby that is often served in my house. After eating this soup numerous times at a favorite local diner, I began making it at home. The recipe is simple and basic, and the end result is the ultimate in comfort food. The recipe that follows can easily be tailored to your liking. For instance, I use brown rice, more vegetables, and about half the amount of lemon juice than it calls for. Whatever your personal preference, I think you'll really love this soup!
Chicken Lemon Rice Soup
6 cups chicken broth
1 chicken bouillon cube
1/3 cup rice, uncooked
1/3 cup carrot, diced
1/3 cup celery, chopped
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 cup chicken, cubed and cooked
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
3 eggs
3 tablespoons lemon juice
salt and pepper
lemon slice (optional)
sliced green onion or parsley (optional)
1. In a large saucepan, combine chicken broth, bouillon cube, rice, carrots, celery and onion.
2. Bring to a boil.
3. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes or until rice and vegetables are tender.
4. Stir in chicken.
5. Remove from heat.
6. In a small saucepan, melt butter and stir in flour until smooth.
7. Gradually add 2 cups of broth mixture, cook until slightly thickened, stirring constantly.
8. In a small bowl, beat the eggs until frothy.
9. Gradually beat lemon juice and 2 cups thickened broth into the large pot of soup.
10. Very slowly add egg mixture into the soup, stirring constantly. Do not do this if your soup is boiling or very hot or your eggs will split. You may want to take the soup off the burner for a few minutes before you add the eggs.
11. Heat gently until soup thickens enough to coat a spoon--do not boil!
12. Add salt and pepper to taste, garnish with lemon.
Serves 4-6
