Calling all cooks...

#1
I am in need of kid friendly recipes. I can cook but it is sooo.. time consuming, and not something I really enjoy. I'm tired of quick pick up food (and feeling guilty about buying it all the time). Does anyone know of a sight I can go to, or do you have anything simple to share?

I think this is pretty simple and painless and my kids love it!

Put a whole chicken in the crock pot and let it cook all day, take the chicken out and pour half the juice in a big pot on the stove and add one can of chicken broth and a can of cream of chicken soup. Let that come to a boil and while that is heating up, combine about two or so cups of self rise flour, a splash of oil and just enough buttermilk to make the batter sticky, drop spoonfuls of the sticky batter into the broth....reduce the heat to a med high now......after you get all your (dumplings) in the pot, debone your chicken and add it! It's REALLY good!

You dont want to batter to be runny now! You want it sticky so you can drop rounded spoonfulls of it into your broth! :)

Hope this helps some!

I always thought I was a good cook until the other day when my son said to me, "YOU ARE LIKE DEBRA ON EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND", when he was referring to my cooking.
THose of you who watch the show will know exactly what he meant by that comment and it wasn't a compliment. LOL

LMAO...I love that show!!! Hey, maybe that's why my family jumps at the chance to eat out! :lol:

Msbabedoll,
You just made me feel nostalgic, my mom made the best dumplings, and I always loved chicken and dumpling night! When I think of them now, I picture windows covered in steam, the GREAT smell, and the warm fuzzy feeling that you only get when you think of home! Thank you for the recipe I will definitely try it!

Hi all. Now this might sound strange but I cook with my son. We make all kinds of stuff. Have you made mozzarella chicken?

You need Chicken Breasts
Pasta sauce
Mozzarella cheese 1bolck in a half
Egg noodles
(Other cheeses optional)


You take chicken breast cook them in a pan till stiff (no wiggle when picked up)

Then you slice them down the middle (like a hot dog bun)

Place several strips of mozzarella in them. Close them up with toothpick (optional)

Next boil as much egg noodles, as your family needs.

Then place the noodles in a baking dish. Cover the noodles with sauce and cheese (save some sauce and cheese to cover chicken)

Next place the chicken on top of noodles (spread them out)

Put sauce and cheese on top and bake at 325 for 12-15 min or until cheese starts to bubble.

Add French bread and you got yourself an awesome family meal in 30 min

If you want more recipes I have a whole bunch.

Till next time

4 boneless chicken breast, cut up into chunks
1 1/3 cup uncooked rice
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cans (from soup) water
put in baking dish, stir it all up and then "float" sliced american cheese covering the top. put some foil on it and bake for 1 hr @ 400 degrees.

I love this stuff

WOW all that sounds good!! I may have to try that cheesey chicken stuff!

I make this sometimes too which is quick and easy
its
Hamburger
Egg Noodles
Rotel
and Velveta

Cook your meant, drain (add bell peppers and onion to it too) cook your noodles while your meat is cooking, throw it all in a casserole dish and cook at 375 till the cheese melts good! Its great with green beans and rolls!!
