Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe

Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe

If you are still buying condensed cream of mushroom soup in a can, it is time to stop right now. I’m about to show you how to make your own. Seriously. It’s super easy and definitely worth the little bit of extra time it takes to make. Make this Cream of Mushroom Soup recipe once and you’ll have a hard time going back to the canned stuff!

I love making my own Cream of Mushroom Soup, and not just because I like cooking things from scratch. There are tons of reasons why this Cream of Mushroom Soup recipe beats the canned. It is healthier for you, it is easy, you already have the ingredients on hand, and it’s yummy as well! Why would you go to the store to buy the canned goopy stuff, when you could just make your own at home with real ingredients you mix yourself?

Now – I will admit that it ends up costing a little more than the canned stuff (which you can usually get as low as about $0.50 when you shop with coupons), but I truly believe that the “trade-off” of having a fresh and wholesome batch of cream of mushroom soup is worth the slight extra cost!

As you might have guessed by how, we are really trying to make more and more items from scratch these days and have greatly reduced the number of processed foods and chemicals in our house.  From my post about How to Make Peanut Butter, or how to make your own Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing mix, or even my Nesquik Mix recipe… but out of all of the recipes I would suggest, this Cream of Mushroom Soup recipe as being one of the best for beginners. It’s pretty easy and forgiving, and you’re probably using it in a casserole, so if it tastes a little “off,” no one will notice.

One thing you should note, however, is that this Cream of Mushroom Soup recipe does not freeze well, and it can only be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days. This has never been a problem for me, since I always make it at the same time that I’m cooking the chicken or the noodles for the casserole I’m making, but that’s just something to be aware of if you like to plan ahead!

5 Foods That Will Help Prevent Bad Breath

We’ve all been there, you get all dressed up and head out to do something fun and new. Your hair is perfect, you remembered to bring your wallet, cell phone…what are you forgetting? Then in your mind you picture that toothbrush you left on the counter, waiting to be used.

Bad breath happens to everyone! But once you get to where you are going, here are some things to look for to fresh up your breath, and prevent bad breath. No brushing, flossing, or dental gum required.

Cinnamon Sticks – Take a quick bite of a cinnamon stick to kill the bacteria in your mouth. Not only will it kill the bad smell but you will smell warm and comforting, like a fresh cookie.

Dill - Eating a little dill can mask the odor of bad breath quickly. If you can’t find dill at where ever you are going, look for a dill dip. Yogurt is also proven to fight bad breath.

Water – You might even have a water bottle in your car! Swish water in your mouth for about 20-30 seconds to clean your mouth and tongue. Repeat if necessary.

Cheese – Did you know that cheese can fight plaque and fight mouth odor? Pick up a few pieces of cheese to snack on and your bad breath should disappear.

Apples – Apples will not only freshen your breath but they will also help whiten your teeth and clean off any plaque.  Eat these regularly to not only help improve your breath but to save you from a trip to the dentist.

These methods are a little unconventional but they should work if you are in a bind. Apple breath would be much better than bad breath!

What are some unconventional ways you’ve used to prevent bad breath without brushing or flossing your teeth? Have you tried any of these methods and have they worked for you?
