A New Favorite Soup: Coconut-Curry Chicken Soup

I know. I know. It has been awhile. I have had a lot on my plate lately. It was my Anniversary Feb. 18th, My husbands birthday Feb. 21st, and Alex's 5th Birthday Feb 21!! It was insanity. I made a Red Velvet Cake and Cheesecake Layered Birthday Cake and much more.
Not to mention, I had sick kiddos.
Fun Fun Fun.
Anyway, it is cold in Florida. (ONCE AGAIN!) Tonight, it is suppose to hit 39 degrees!
I wanted to try something new and not too heavy. I found an incredible new recipe on the cooking light recipe. It did not let me down. It is now a new favorite and will be a new staple in our home. I hope you enjoy this recipe too....
