Recipe Repetoire ...

Calling all of you incredible cooks out there! I am wanting to spruce up my cookin' ensembles...and would like to hear any and all ideas you all may have hidden in your recipe boxes. I'm looking for anything quick, yummy and healthy... do those three words really go together?! I'm especially wanting to acquire a few good crock-pot recipes for hurried Sunday mornings! Feel free to post your favorites here or on your own blog. I'll share one for starters. My sister, Barb, gave me this recipe and it is one of our favorites, hands down!

Chicken Wrap-Ups
6 chicken tenders
1 pkg. cream cheese
2 tsp. minced onion
2 tbsp. butter
salt & pepper to taste
1 can of Pillsbury crescent rolls

* Lay out the crescent rolls in a 9/13 pan--use 2 crescents to form one square. Place chicken, cream cheese, onion, butter, salt & pepper in food processor and blend to your approval... We prefer the chicken to be shredded--not chunky. Spoon out chicken mixture on crescent squares and fold over to seal. Bake at 325 for 20-25 minutes. Serves 2


  1. You say "quick, yummy and healthy"; I say quick, yummy, healthy, and inexpensive. Now that seems completely impossible. But there may be one or two recipes out there that meet the criteria.

    I'll see what I can come up with. :)

  2. yes--I heartily agree;) Seminary couples love anything good and inexpensive;) I'll be looking forward to a good recipe from ya!

  3. This one sounds yummy! I've got to write that one down. Adrianne shared this one with us and we have had it LOTS since then, but maybe I shouldn't steal her thunder . . . oh well.

    Simple Open Face Sandwiches
    place sliced bread on a cookie sheet, butter is optional, then a slice of whatever kind of cheese you are hankering for, add a slice of tomatoe, and a pinch of basil. I also have added garlic salt as well. Then stick them under the broiler for only a few minutes - watch them closely because they will burn. Voila - Dinner!!

  4. we love wraps and I put about anything in a tortilla! my quickest go-to meal is (cooked) chx patties/tenders, diced. put a bunch of lettuce in a tortilla, sprinkle with shredded cheese, add chx. top with ranch dressing and a few sprinkles of buffalo sauce (if you like a little kick).

  5. Sarah,
    Something we haven't done in a while, but was good is chicken, barbeques sauce, canned pineapples, and garlic in the crockpot. It's great on mashed potatoes or noodles and very easy, cheap, and healthy :)
    Ps. Thanks for letting us borrow the circular saw. We will get it back to you this week!


  6. Okay, Sarah, Mrs. Gittings told me this one the other day and I thought, I could do that! It's Ice Cream cake. She priced an ice cream cake for Lexie's graduation celebration and it would have been $70 for the group she was having -- so someone at work told her this recipe. You take ice cream sandwiches and line a 9X13 pan --(or whatever size you want) with them. Spread cool whip over top. Put another layer of ice cream sandwiches and top with cool whip. You can put sprinkles, etc. on top. Freeze til shortly before ready to serve.

  7. I know pears arent really in season but sliced pears make an awesome meat substitution for sandwhiches. WE had them in pita bread with spinach and crasins, etc. Cream cheese would be a good base in it too!

  8. thanks guys for all the recipes!! Looking forward to using them!

  9. Ooh, ooh, I have one!!!

    This is from My Girlfriend's Kitchen, and even my kids loved it!!!

    Slice a ciabatta bread in half, like a big open sub sandwich. Open it up and put ham and pepperoni or salami and provolone cheese on the bottom half of the bread - as much as is to your liking. Dab a little bit of Ken's Sundried Tomato Vinaigrette Salad Dressing on the top part of the sandwich, then close it up. Heat it at 350 for about 20 minutes - until nice and melty. You might want to cover with foil so the bread doesn't get too brown on top. Then slice it into 4-5 pieces.


Thank you so much for reading here and sharing life with me!
