crock pot rotisserie-style chicken

I made the rotisserie-style chicken in the crock pot for supper today. Instead of using a whole chicken, I used three boneless, skinless chicken breasts and six boneless, skinless chicken thighs. The seasoning is delicious. DH and DD both liked it, so we’ll be having this again. Wish you could smell this delicious chicken. The […]

tomato soup

This soup was scheduled for the menu this week, but we used it last Friday instead. It turned out well, so I’m posting the recipe. The bread for the sandwiches came out of the oven and was immediately sliced and toasted. Oh, so good! Tomato Soup You can use fresh celery and onion in this […]

rosemary ranch chicken and easy home fries

Last week, I tried these new recipes and both were very good. DH said several times, “this is a good meal,” which is always nice to hear. And DD asked me to make the potatoes and chicken again. Rosemary Ranch Chicken The chicken recipe called for the chicken to be cubed and grilled on skewers. […]

mexican chopped salad

Last night for supper, we had tacos, tortilla chips with sour cream / salsa, and a Mexican chopped salad. The salad was delicious and we’ll be making it again. It’s especially nice right now when tomatoes and cucumbers are so plentiful from the garden. You can follow the above link to see the original recipe. […]

supernatural brownies

The recipe is from Chocolate: From Simple Cookies to Extravagant Showstoppers, by Nick Malgieri (Morrow Cookbooks, 1998). The recipe in the book calls for baking the brownies for “about 45 minutes.” I read multiple blogs regarding the same recipe, and most thought the brownies were better if taken from the oven after 30 minutes. Too […]

crock pot apples

My dear friend Mary posted this recipe and I’ve used it before. Delicious apples for an accompaniment to pork dishes, as a dessert or snack, and delicious on ice cream. Like apple pie without the crust or added calories. 2-6 apples, depending on how many you want. I used 5 today; a combination of Golden […]

blueberry crumb cake

After several days of sitting with DD as she has not been feeling well, I decided to make a cake this afternoon. Needed a change of pace! I tried Blueberry Crumb Cake from Dorie Greenspans’s book Baking: from My Home to Yours. The recipe was easy to follow. The crumb topping, when cooked, was more […]

chickpea snacks

Today I tried making toasted chickpeas (garbanzo beans) for the first time. I’ll say up front that I am the kind of person who likes to eat the old maids when we make popcorn…you know those unpopped and partly popped kernels of corn? I save all the old maids and repop them. Second time around […]

oven fried potato wedges

I made the Bisquick Chicken Fingers recipe this week. Everyone liked it well enough, but it wasn’t a rave. Not something I will make again. There are just too many other chicken recipes we like better. And new ones to try. But the Oven Fried Potato Wedges…those will remain on the list of menu options. […]
