How to Make Homemade Noodles from Scratch

It's chilly outside and I'm all about the soups! One of my favorites is chicken noodle soup, with homemade noodles.

The art of making noodles has pretty much disappeared in our convenience driven world. Don't get me wrong - I buy noodles. In fact, the only time I make noodles is when I make chicken noodle soup. Because there's something special about a warm bowl of chicken soup with noodles made from scratch.... I just can't bring myself to make chicken soup without them.
