This came from one of Janices good friends Carol Toone.

Need an easy bread stick recipe here is one that is often served at my in-laws house.

3 Cups warm Water

-Let sit 5 minutes or so while yeast activates-

2 tsp. Salt

Our family like to roll them in butter and top them with salad supreme before baking.


This is something my dad will often throw together when it is his night to cook dinner. It is simple and easy.

1/2 onion minced

1/2 bag tator tots

Brown meat and onion. Place tator tots in bottom of baking dish (glass loaf pan) salt slightly. Drain, meat and place over tator tots. Mix milk and soup and pour over meat and potatoes. Sprinkle grated cheese on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.


I love this recipe passed on to me from my mom. It is quick and simple and oh so delicious.

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 small cans mushroom pieces (optional)
2 bouillon cubes (dissolved in 1 cup hot water)

Slice beef into paper thin stripes (should make 36 to 40 slices, figure on 6 slices per person). Heat butter in a frying pan and put in about slices of meat until brown, cook just a few seconds on each side. Keep meat warm while you cook all slices.
Then cook meat in 2 bouillon cubes dissolved in 1 cup of hot water.
Cook until bubbling.
Serve on buns.
(I serve on hoogie style buns)
Serving size 6 sandwiches

Can be served with sauteed onions and mushrooms.


My grandma Love use to make this all the time but not as a casserole. It is so good, but being as life is so busy I usually leave the chicken, ham and cheese whole and throw it all in the casserole dish. It is one of my favorite recipes that my grandma use to make.

Mix cream of chicken soup, milk and sour cream in a bowl and pour over chicken, ham, and cheese. Combine crackers, garlic salt, parsley, and paprika and sprinkle on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until chicken is no longer pink. May be served over mashed potatoes or rice or on its own.

Parmesan Crusted Chicken

I am totally in love with the Parmesan Crusted Chicken at TGI Friday's so when I saw this recipe. I totally wanted to try it.

What you will need:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup dried bread crumbs
  • 1 lb chicken cutlets, washed and patted dry
  • cooking spray
What you will need to do:
In a shallow bowl, whisk together the egg, water, and salt until smooth.

In another shallow bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs, stirring well to mix.

Dip the chicken cutlets into the egg mixture, coating well on both sides; then place into the Parmesan mixture, coating well on both sides.

Place prepared cutlets on a separate plate and set aside.

Coat a large nonstick skillet generously with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat.

Working in batches, cook the chicken in a single layer, for 4 minutes on each side, until cooked through and Parmesan crust is browned to desired crispiness.

In between batches, wipe the skillet clean with paper towels and re-coat it generously with cooking spray.

Going French??

Lately I am totally in love with French's French Fried Onions. Here are two of my favorite things to make with them. Can you believe the other day I opened a can of cream of mushroom when I should have been opening cream of chicken and of course I was forced to make this next recipe.

French's Green Bean Casserole:
What you'll need:
1 (10 3/4 oz.) can cream of Mushroom Soup
3/4 Cup Milk
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 1/3 cups French's french fried onions
2 cans green beans drained

Mix soup and milk, then add pepper, beans and 2/3 cup onions in 1 1/2qt casserole. Bake at 350* for 30 min. or until hot. Stir. Top with remaining onions. bake 5 min.

French's crunchy onion chicken:
2 Cups French's French fried onions
2 tbsp. flour
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 egg beaten

Crush french fried onions with flour in plastic bag.
Dip chicken in egg. Coat in onion crumbs. Press firmly to adhere.
Bake at 400* for 20 min. until no longer pink in the center.

These are both quick and easy. I found both of them on the can of French's french fried onion. Got to love when you try a new recipe and totally fall in love with it.
