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!

Monterey Chicken

(Thanks to Jessica for this recipe. It was easy and tasted fantastic. I probably wouldn’t compare this to Chili’s, because I can NEVER make anything taste like a restaurants, but this is certainly a keeper! I served this with baked potatoes and Zucchini Spears (see recipe) Also I forgot the chives, but I plan on trying it with them next time.)

Boneless, skinless chicken breast
2 tsp. BBQ Sauce, per piece of chicken
2 slices of cooked bacon, per piece of chicken  (I used apple wood)
Mixture of Monterey Jack and Cheddar Cheese, shredded
Olive oil or Cooking Spray
Garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper
Chopped tomatoes and chives

Add a thin layer of olive oil or spray bottom of baking dish. Add garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper to both sides of chicken, place in dish. Top with BBQ sauce and bacon.  Cook on 350 for approximately 30 to 45 minutes.  Top with cheese, allow to melt in oven. Sprinkle with diced cold tomatoes and chives.
