Family dinners have always been important in our family. Recently our oldest son moved out on his own, and I’m loving our family dinners even more. We are getting closer to having the Log Cabin finished and I can’t wait to cook big dinners and have my whole family gather around the dinner table.
Italian has always been a family favorite and I have been thinking an Italian feast would be great for the holidays. This Chicken Gnocchi Soup would be an amazing starter or totally perfect as the main dish with some crusty bread along side.
I tried something new with this comforting and delicious soup. I added in Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste! I had never tried vanilla in a savory dish but it added a wonderful, earthy flavor to one of my favorite soups.
I loved the concentrated flavor of the Vanilla Bean Paste and I’m excited to really experiment with this incredible flavor in not only baked goods but savory dishes too. My sister-in-law was telling me about a vanilla crusted steak that she enjoyed from a restaurant and I can’t wait to give that a try.
I’m totally scrambling around to get ready for the holidays, as I’m sure many of you are. I am going to try to take time next week to slow down and enjoy time with my family with many good meals and plenty of sweet treats! This Chicken Gnocchi Soup is totally worthy of a holiday dinner and I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine did!
