Recipe help

Hello all!

I realized something while I was cooking dinner last week.  As far as dinner is concerned, I'm really boring.  Almost every night we have a meat (chicken, pork or hamburger) with a carb (pasta, rice or potatoes) and veggies (corn, peas, carrots or broccoli).  Granted, my family eats it well and no one complains, but I would really love a new recipe or two to broaden our horizons.

So, what I'd love from you is your favorite recipe.  You can leave it in the comments, email me at catwoman522(at)gmail(dot)com, or blog about it and send me the link.  I'll try them out and tell you how they go.

There are a few requirements though:  No cauliflower, mustard, watermelon or oranges.  That's all the random stuff I'm allergic too.  No mushrooms - I can't stand those.  And I have to either be able to make it within an hour, or to be able to put it in a crockpot.

Not too hard, huh?  I'll be looking for those recipes!


  1. these are 2 super easy and yummy ones... my favorite...

    White Chili
    1 lb chicken - cut or cubed
    1 medium onion
    1 tbs. oil

    ½ tsp. pepper
    1 tsp. oregano
    ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
    2 cans white beans - drained
    14 ½ oz chicken broth
    2 cans 4oz chopped green chilies
    1 c. sour cream
    ½ cup whipping cream
    Cheddar Cheese

    Saute chicken, onion and garlic powder in oil, add beans, broth, chilies,
    and seasoning. Bring to boil then reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.
    Remove from heat, stir in whipping cream and sour cream. Garnish with cheese

    the other is...
