The surprise is the milk chocolate center. a cookie made by covering the candy kiss in a stiff meringue flavored with vanilla and peppermint extract if desired. Comes from my Better Homes and Gardens recipe card collection. I have not made these yet, prep time is a guess.
An interesting meatless casserole. Uses large shells filled with a spinach and cottage cheese mixture and baked in a creamy parmasan cheese sauce. This is from an old Better Homes and Gardens recipe card. I have not tried it yet myself, but it is on my list to try. (prep time is a guess)
Another recipe from the back of the minute rice box. It uses cooked chicken so would be great for using up those leftovers. Looks yummy and could easily be doubled to serve more. There may seem to be a lot of steps, but I broke it down to make it easy for anyone to follow.
This is from an old Better Homes recipe card. I have not tried it but it sounds yummy. It contains no tomatoes. It could probably be made in a crock pot as well. It has apple cider and chopped apple as well. Prep time include browning the meat.
From Better homes recipe cards. This is a very basic recipe. You can tweak it however you like. **NOTE the times are estimated as the recipe doesn't give a total cooking time, and I have never done this one myself
