Besides pasta I enjoy nothing more than a nice warm bowl of soup on a cold day, a sick day, a frustrated day…well just about any day!  After a recent trip to Olive Garden and having their chicken gnocchi soup I decided to try making it at home.  I searched Pinterest and found a great recipe for Chicken Gnocchi Soup by Jamie over at Jamie Cooks It Up.  http://jamiecooksitup.net/2012/03/chicken-gnocchi-soup/  I  also ran across a tasty sounding Mushroom soup by Reese & Mark over at Season With Spice    http://blog.seasonwithspice.com/2011/12/cream-of-mushroom-soup-recipe.html.  Being unable to decide I went with a combo of both soups.  Chicken Mushroom Gnocchi Soup became the mission and the trial and error process started.  We have now had this soup three times and have shared it with friends and so far it has been met with approval.  I hope you get a chance to try all the soups and visit with Jamie, Reese & Mark.
