Crock Pot Chicken Cattiatore - Arlene Cook

Place 2 chicken breasts in a small crock pot. Use 4 if you have a large crock pot.
Pour Italian dressing (from a bottle, not the powder mix) over the chicken until it is covered.
Cook for 4 to 6 hours and shred.
Add 1 bottle of spaghetti sauce. I like Barilla's Tomato and Basil spaghetti sauce. You may need to add more than one bottle if you used more than 2 chicken breasts.

Serve over any pasta. I like angel hair pasta with this.

1/4 cup diced green chilis
1/4 cup diced celery

1 teaspoon cumin powder
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup water

Brown the ground beef in skillet on medium heat; drain the fat.

In a large pot combine the beef with the remaining ingredients, and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, stirring every 15 minutes for 2 to 3 hours - or - cook in a crock pot for high for 4 hours or on low for 6 hours. Serves 12.

French Pancakes - Lee Ann Nielsen

This is a family favorite, breakfast or dinner:

2 cups milk

1 cup flour

3 eggs, beaten in a bowl, seperately

1 Tabl. sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

Blend all ingredients with a wire wisk, or with an electric mixer on low. Do not overblend. Heat oil or butter (brommel and brown-yogurt butter, healthier and works well.), in an electric skillet, spread evenly. With a ladle, mix ingriedents well so flour does not settle in the bottom. Place pancake mixture in pan 1/4 to 1/2 cup depending on the size of electric frying pan. Spread evenly and let brown on bottom. Then butter the top of the pancake. Brown evenly on both sides. Roll pancake tightly, and serve. Maple, or raspberry syrup and a touch of jam, taste good. These pancakes are a little more filling than crepes.

Although I LOVE reading blogs, I am not an avid blogger and I'm not crazy about spending too much time on the computer. Aside from new recipe posts, this blog probably won't change much. Seeing all the fun ways people format their blogs is half the fun of blogging, but this one will quite simply be - well..., simple.
