Here's a Chicken Salad Recipe for you guys! This is one of our family favorites.

It's Super EASY!!!!!

Green Peppers, finely diced
Carrots, finely diced
Onions, finely diced
Rotini, cooked and drained (serving size of 2 people)
1 Chicken Breast, cooked & finely shredded

Put all in a large mixing bowl and cover with Russian Salad Dressing.... stir the dressing for an even cover

Don't really need to measure anything out... just simply look for appropriate mixture of everything. Its a good way to get rid of the vegetables in your fridge.

EDIT: My mom was saying that the salad dressing has to be the WishBone Brand (Wishbone Salad Dressing- Russian type)... it adds a better taste. There is salt and pepper also. The chicken can be chicken breast, but it also can be the canned type. For veggies one can also add celery, cauliflower, yellow/red peppers, broccoli (basically any vegetables that you have in the fridge.)

:uarrow: Yum.....that sounds good! I never measure anything (except when I bake). That's kinda why I haven't posted any of my recipes here - no measurements.

I made Frick's Baked Rice Dressing last night - YUM YUM YUM!! It's delicious!

I had one small change...I was about to chop my onion and bell pepper when I remembered I had a few bags of frozen chopped onion/bell pepper in the freezer (have never used it before though), and thought I'd open a bag and check it out as a little timesaver since I got a later start than I had planned. It was an onion/3 pepper medley. It had red and yellow bell peppers in it as well, but not very many as most of them were green. It looked good, so I used that. No complaints here - worked out wonderfully.

I'll be making this recipe again. Very easy too! Thanks, Frick.

Hey 'Gale - was that frozen mix made by Pict-Sweet? I've used that many times when I've been in a pinch and been very happy with the results. I never would have tried it if a friend hadn't recommended it. I figured frozen onions and peps would have just ended up turning to slime if frozen, but they're right up there with the fresh and without all the labor.

Actually it was Kroger brand. I had bought them on sale a while back and stuck them in the freezer in case I ever needed them and didn't have fresh. I had never used them before either, but I was impressed. They looked and tasted just like fresh!
I tried to buy something similar at Walmart the other night, but the only kind I found had a lot of onions and not very many peppers, so I'm gonna buy some more to keep in the freezer next time I go to Kroger. I don't remember what brand that was at Walmart, but the bag was clear.

Hey Sunny - I made your cheese cake with the praline sauce for a party last Saturday. It was inhaled in 30 minutes - and this was after everyone had consumed every last bite of food in the host's house. :D I don't even remember how many copies of the recipe I've emailed out - EVERYONE wanted it. Your fame is spreading!

Some friends invited me and my family over to dinner a couple months ago and enjoyed nice Hawaiian Haystacks. I've asked if they got any recipes and they copied it and handed it to me for further use. I don't know if it's been posted before, but I'm gonna post it anyways:


- 10-12 chicken tenders (cut in chunks)
- 1 cup of chicken broth
- 2 cans (10 3/4 oz. each) of Cream of Chicken Soup (condensed)
- 1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
- 6 cups of cooked rice

Place chicken in greased 3 1/2 to 5-quart slow cooker. Combine all remaining ingredients except rice and pour over chicken. Cover and cook on high heat for 3-4 hours or on low heat for 6-8 hours. Makes 4-6 servings.

Serve over hot rice with a variety of cold toppings that could include grated cheese, peas, pineapple tidbits, shredded coconut, rasins, Chinese noodles, and other family favorites. Enjoy.

This is one of my favorite Fall recipe... I have my family hooked on these cupcakes

Caramel Apple Cupcakes

1 large chopped granny smith apple
35 caramels
1 pkg Spice cake
1/4 cup evaporated milk
paper cupcake liners
peanuts (or walnuts)
(**If allergic to nuts leave peanuts off top of cupcakes**)
24 Wooden Craft Sticks (Optional)

1. Preheat Oven to 350*
2. Mix Spice Cake according to pkg.... do not bake
3. Add chopped apples to cake mix
4. Pour cake mix into liner fulled cupcake pans.. fill 2/3 full (try to have a few apples pieces in each cupcake)
5. Bake cupcakes for 20 minutes at 350*. Check with toothpick.
6. Melt evaporated milk and caramels at medium-low heat for 4 minutes in medium sauce pan
7. While cupcakes are warm... add melted caramel to top of each... add peanuts (you may have to press peanuts down onto caramel) and craft sticks.
8. Enjoy when cooled

**Store in refrigerator once cooled.**

It looks complicated, but it is super easy... Kids could decorate the tops of the cupcakes if they would like to help.

Recipe request!

I need a good recipe for a green vegetable, to feed a crowd (28). That would also go good with lasanga and garlic bread. This is for our neighborhood's annual progressive dinner party. I will be at an earlier course - appetizers - at a different house. Ideally it would be convenient to make a casserole or a dish that can be transported in a crock pot. I have a good brocolli casserole but I've made it many times, I think by now my neighbors are probably getting sick of it! I'm leaning towards zuchinni or aspargus.

I know I could just make fresh green beans but that means I'm missing part of the appetizer course, to prepare them correctly.

Thanks in advance for anyone that has a good recipe I can borrow.
