This is the start of a LONG overdue series called…HOLY COW I WAS HORRIBLE WHEN I STARTED AND I NEED TO RESHOOT ALL MY OLD STUFF!!!! Okay, so I’ll probably come up with something a little more succinct than that, but you get the drift.

I think almost all bloggers that have been at this for more than a few years have these posts lurking in the way way back of their archives just waiting to be dug out, pinned, and paraded around the internet as a current representation of your work.

Want to know how far you can come and how much you can grow in four+ years? I present to you…the BEFORE.

I knew I was finally an actual adult, and making some progress in the kitchen when you started asking me for my opinion on things now and then. You and Denise’s (My awesome mother-in-law!) encouragement and kitchen prowess has seriously made me strive to improve, search, and seek out different dishes to trot out at Sunday dinners because I know if you and your Mama like it, it must be good.

This hearty and creamy soup is perfect for even the coldest fall or winter day! Full of chicken, wild rice, chicken, mushrooms, sage, and cream, it might be in my top 5 favorites for soup!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 20 minutes


  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • enough water to cover chicken in the stock pot
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3-4 tablespoons chicken better than bouillon
  • 2 tablespoons rubbed sage
  • 2 cups wild rice, uncooked and rinsed well
  • 3 cups carrots, diced
  • 5 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream


  1. Remove as much meat as possible from the chicken. Place water and chicken carcass in a medium to large sized stock pot. Let simmer for at least 1 hour, but up to 3-4 is best. Using a large spoon, break down the bird in the pot after it softens up from simmering.
  2. When stock is completed, strain through a fine mesh strainer and return the stock to the pan. Add additional water if your stock has substantially cooked down. Bring the water level up to almost its original level. Add onion, celery, chicken better than bouillon, sage, wild rice, carrots and mushrooms into the pot. Let simmer, stirring frequently, over medium-low heat.
  3. While the soup is simmering, melt butter in small saute pan. Add flour and whisk. Let cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown.
  4. Slowly add to simmering soup while stirring. Let simmer for 10 minutes over low heat. Add the heavy cream and stir until combined.

Once all the ingredients are added, how long does this cook?

It is done as soon as the soup has thickened slightly from adding the roux. Occasionally you may need to simmer a bit longer depending on how large your carrots are, and if the wild rice is done to your liking. Soup is pretty flexible. As soon as the ingredients are cooked the way you like, its "done".
