Welcome to my personal recipe share page. All the recipes found here are all tried and true. Some have been shared by friends and some are old family recipes. Others I've found on cooking sites, web pages and in cook books. All have been tweaked to my families liking. Please note that I don't create my own recipes and I'm not taking credit for others recipes. I'm simply sharing what has worked for us and sharing our favorites. Since I know how much I enjoy new and exciting recipes, I thought I would share them with the world! I get tired of making the same dish time and time again. It's true that while something is worthy of being enjoyed frequently, the same rotation gets old fast. The recipes you will find here, for the most part, are simple to create with easy to come by ingredients. While there may be the recipe that requires a little more effort, I can assure you that it will be worth it. There will also be plenty of crock pot creations for you to choose from. I hope that you find something here that appeals to you and that you will share your favorites with me. Enjoy and Bon Appetite!

Farmhouse Chicken Dinner

(I got tonight’s recipe online from Kraft. It was fantastic. It had a bit of a kick to it, which really made the dish. Everyone loved it. It’s definitely a keeper! I forgot to take a picture again, so I swiped the one off Kraft.)

¼ cup flour
Black pepper
6 chicken breast
¾ cups Zesty Italian Dressing
4 cups baby carrots
2 onions cut into wedges
2 (14 oz) cans chicken broth
4 cups brown rice, cooked
8 oz Cream Cheese

Pepper chicken and dredge in flour. Heat dressing in nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add chicken; cook 5 minutes. Turn chicken, cook 5 minutes. Add carrots, onions and chicken broth; cover. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium and cook for 30 minutes or until carrots and chicken are done. Meanwhile cook rice as directed. Spoon rice onto platter. Use slotted spoon to remove chicken and vegetables from skillet; place over rice. Add cream cheese to broth; cook on medium high heat for 5 mins or until melted and sauce is well blended. Simmer on medium low 3 to 5 mins or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Spoon over chicken and vegetables. Top with parsley (I skipped this step.)  


  1. This would totally get eaten in my house. Did you add any addition veggies like some small potato wedges? I personally loathe cooked carrots so I'm leaning towards potatoes and making a side of broccoli.

  2. No, we didn't add anything additional, but I bet it would be awesome with potatoes instead!!
