    Very simple, easy and elegant appetizer, perfect for a brunch or tea. From a magazine produced by local grocery store.

    Recipe #367024

    Very simple. No cooking. No boiling water. I am a preschool teacher, and use it all the time for my kids. It is just the right consistency, and doesn't leave all the messy "bits" on the table like store-bought. You just have to play with the amount of flour till it gets where you like it.

    Recipe #367038

    From the book, "365 Ways to Cook Chicken" by Cheryl Sedaker. I tend to substitute boneless chicken breasts, and have never actually tried this with the slivered almonds. This is one of those recipes that really is so easy to make but looks amazing and is very impressive at dinner parties.

    Recipe #343254

    This was originally a grilled or sauteed pork chop recipe from the Taste of Home Test Kitchen that I have tweaked. I used tenderloin instead because I am not a bone-in person, and then decided on oven-roasting to keep it tender and juicy. Do not skip the searing step. It really locks in the juices. The flavor on these is absolutely amazing. So tender, and the flavors of the sauce combine beautifully.

    Recipe #362541

    Originally a recipe from Taste of Home's "Five Ingredient Cookbook," but I have done much tweaking to get it just right. This one is so yummy and filling, and the flavors blend surprisingly nicely. If you can find apple pie filling with cinnamon already added, you can just use that. Usually I can't find it at my store. Also I frequently cannot find 6 oz. packages of stuffing mix, so I just make about 2 cups of stuffing, or a whole box, and put the extra on the side. This recipe was originally for pork, so you can also substitute 6 boneless pork loin chops for the chicken. We are more chicken fans at my house! You can also leave the chicken breasts whole if you prefer. I just find it blends nicely with them chopped.

    Recipe #363247

    Originally from Taste of Home's "Five Ingredient Cookbook." Tacos in a biscuit. Easy and yummy. I've thrown some extra spice into the meat here. I am guesstimating on all amounts, as really I just use dashes of each until I feel comfortable that all meat has been seasoned through. "Jump Up and Kiss Me" is a hot sauce that is one of my dad's fave's and I've now always got a bottle on hand, too. I think you have to special order it. Though I do highly recommend it, if you can't find it, just sub in hot sauce of your choice. These work best if you use original style biscuits, not buttermilk, and definitely not the "Flaky Layers" kinds. You can also just buy and use "Mexican Blend" cheese pre-shredded at the store.

    Recipe #363372

    I found these on another site. I accidentally grabbed strawberry jam instead of raspberry when I made it the first time, and it was still great. The flavor of the meat is absolutely fabulous.

    Recipe #309040

    I initially got part of this combination from a Food Network show, and have added a few things along the way. I call it "Spicy Rice" and my husband loves it. It makes normal steamed rice much less bland. The step by step process allows all the ingredients to cook into the rice. I usually take into consideration the entree I'm serving it with before I add the Cajun Seasoning. It's a personal preference. All ingredient amounts can be adjusted according to taste.

    Recipe #310201

    This recipe was from a Taste of Home magazine, and was super simple and yummy. Can simply put the chicken in a skillet with a lid and cook, if you don't have a grill handy. I doubled the amount of lemon butter, and added the second half when I flipped the chicken over. Also, this goes great served over egg noodles, especially if you drizzle some fresh lemon juice on the noodles just before serving.

    Recipe #322914

    This recipe is from my mother-in-law, and is absolutely delicious. It is pumpkin pie only a fluffy, no-bake version that is very easy and quick to prepare.

    Recipe #345402

    This came from a recipe card I received in the mail. For a different twist, substitute lemonade concentrate for the limeade. Works great with steamed rice, broccoli, or a pasta.

    Recipe #366693

    From "365 Ways to Cook Chicken." An easy way to barbecue in the oven. With most of the recipes in this book, I just substitute chicken breasts for the whole chicken, and it turns out wonderful. The salt and pepper were also my addition. Don't skimp on a cheap barbecue sauce here. The barbecue flavor is clearly what's crucial (i.e. don't go with the 99 cent Kraft bottle). You want a slightly thicker barbecue sauce, with a definite hickory flavor.

    Recipe #366694

    This is a slow-cooker recipe for barbecue ham sandwiches from a Simple and Delicious magazine.

    Recipe #366700

    I got this from a Gourmet desserts magazine. It makes a ton, and is a wonderful holiday gift idea. The cinnamon and peppermint variations are also exquisite. Using high quality chocolate can take this to another level of greatness, but I have also used store-brand chocolate chips when on a budget crunch and still gotten rave reviews from friends.

    Recipe #366701

    Yummy cheese soup from Cook's Illustrated magazine. I used 1/2 cup diced mushrooms in place of the celery. I would also have extra grated cheese on hand, to add to your liking. We like our soup very cheesy!!!

    Recipe #366702

    From "The Everything College Cookbook." It works substituting ground meat for the beef cubes to save money, and I tend to use ground turkey or chicken because it is leaner without really detracting from taste. Just season the met well first. I have also found that substituting Anaheim peppers for the bell peppers gives it even more zing.

    Recipe #366706

    Awesome and easy cheese enchilada recipe. Tip: I struggled the first time I made these, and a few of my tortillas fell apart. If your first time is for a dinner party or gathering, be sure to buy extra tortillas just in case!!! :)

    Recipe #366709

    A friend brought this to a dinner party, and it was so wonderful I had to have the recipe. If I make it again, I might strain the orange marmalade first, as I feel it doesn't really fit the texture of the rest of the pie. If you use it as is, be prepared for a very creamy pie with a layer of small orange chunks in between the filling and the crust. For the chocolate cookie wafers, you could either use Nabisco Famous cookie wafers, or Oreos taken apart with the filling scraped out. All substitutions listed in the recipe were suggested by the original chef.

    Recipe #366719

    These look and smell like real gingerbread, but are not edible! They are extremely cute ornaments for the tree, and can be decorated with acrylic paint once they are dry! They harden up very well, and will last for years if cared for. I have so many good memories of taking out the tin of these on Christmas, and having the house smell like gingerbread instantly while trimming the tree! Note: Prep time includes cooling time before baking, as well as hardening time after baking.
