One of my "working mother" recipes - quick and easy to make, and the kids love it. They still ask for it when they come home for vacations. The recipe is for one whole chicken, cut into eight. I usually double it, and for big dinners even triple it. Try it with different types of honey - each type gives it its own distinctive taste. Serve with plain white rice pilaff, and pour the chicken sauce over the rice. Usually used for the oven, it's also great as a marinade for barbecued chicken, chicken wings or chicken breasts.

This is delicious. It satisfies my craving for lo-mein. I have made with chicken and shrimp as well, just adjust the ramen noodle flavor to match. From WW cookbook Cooking for Two, it makes a HUGE 10 points serving. I am satisfied with 1/2 a serving.

Just a slightly different hot dog that the kids & adults love. Adjust the hotness to your liking

Recipe #25443

This is another one of our favorites! It presents nicely and taste great. We all love the combination of flavors! This dish can be made entirely in the microwave, or finished off in the oven.

This is a very easy, delicious peanut butter fudge, using only two ingredients. It is very rich though. Always a hit at get-togethers. Hope you enjoy it!

Recipe #42547

A recipe I received from a friend of mine who did a little experimenting on making scrambled eggs in the microwave. Ended up being a really good recipe

Microwave meal for those dinners when you really don't have the time to think! Found on the back of chow mein noodles. Posted in response to a request

Recipe #63597

This is a slight variation on an old stand-by dip that most people make. We love it at all of our gatherings!

A coworker shared this recipe with me several years ago. It is a quick and easy meal for busy nights. I have added seasonings to the beef and bean mixture, used Mexican blend cheese, and served with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and diced onions.

Needed a quick meal in the dorm room a college, so I threw together some stuff I had in the fridge.

Recipe #53817

I have to admit I was skeptical about this recipe, but it actually pretty good! I used honey ham for mine but any cooked thinly sliced ham will do! dry breadcrumbs only for this.

Recipe #191235

This is the most delicious tasting fudge, and so easy to make, just mix, and microwave, no need to use a candy thermometer for this just make sure to cook the fudge mixture for the full 15 minutes that's what gives this fudge it's flavour and texture. Since this makes a thin layer of fudge, I sometimes make two separate batches and stack them on top of each other to make a thicker layer ---- well many mixed reviews so I am guessing that every microwave heats differently for me I always have great results!

Recipe #75664

Who says you have to live off Ramen in college? This one came from my "college files" of some of my favorite recipes for the dorm. I had all the gals on my floor at my mercy because they knew I could cook. This recipe is easily halved or quartered for the number of people eating. I served with baked potatoes (do those first).

Recipe #149429

Mrs. Walker was my Sunday school teacher and we used to do this in the church kitchen, occasionally. This is my first memory of cooking that I cherish to this day. She keeps her age a closely guarded secret but is rumoured to be 115+ years old and perhaps, immortal. She has out lived three husbands and four children. She is still sharp as the Bowie knife she carries in her purse. I don't know why she carries a Bowie knife in her purse- but she always has. I asked her about it years ago and she said, "You would be surprised how often it comes in handy, Honey." I suppose it does, Mrs. Walker. God bless you. BTW- she is thrilled that I want to pass this on to another generation of schoolchildren. She was surprised that I remembered doing this with her over 35 years ago and was touched. When asked how to do it- she rattled off the instructions faster than I could write! I've eaten this bag-n-boil recipe for 40+ years with no toxicity what-so-ever, obviously. If it was toxic... I would be in too poor of health to type. Google the topic for yourself and make your own judgment. The danger is greatly exaggerated.

Recipe #132052

I'm from the country and throughly enjoy breakfast food at any time of the day. These are so quick and easy and they satisfy my craving for breakfast food, but I can give some to Pop for his breakfast at work. They're also great for kids, as they are muffins - just right for little hands.

Recipe #146055

There's something about the combo of these two fast food favorites. However, when you're scraping up pennies to afford rent, eating out isn't an option. This dish is affordable and great because you can make two and freeze one. Also, you can make this a Chili dog and tots casserole by adding bite-sized hot dog pieces to the chili and serving with buns.

Recipe #143773

From "Best Recipes All New Slow Cooker", this flavorful and economical recipe is very quick to throw in the crock pot. It is great wrapped in tortillas or served on top of rice (My kids enjoy it both ways!). I double the recipe but not the spices. Note: 11/8/06 I added about 3 tbs. (plus the juice) of crushed pineapple and it was a very good variation!

Recipe #103872

Simple, cheap and tasty meal. Just right for a bachelor. I created this while single and living in Virginia.
