Proverbs 13: 20  He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

One of my son-in-love’s favorites and so easy.  Next time you have chicken for dinner poach an additional chicken breast.  Season the water with season salt and pepper.

1 cooked chicken breast (can use rotisserie chicken) – chopped or shredded into small pieces

1 16 oz. can of chicken or vegetable broth

2 16 oz. cans of cannellini beans (can use navy or great northern beans)

Add these ingredients into a slow cooker.  Do not drain the beans.

Add seasonings to your taste.  I suggest:

1 T. chili powder

1 t. cumin

1 t. celery flakes

2 T. dried chopped onions

1 t. parsley flakes

1/2 t. cayenne

1/2 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. pepper

1 t. salt – optional if on a low sodium diet

Heat together and taste broth for flavor.  Add more of any of the above to taste.

Add additional chicken or vegetable broth if you want a thinner soup.

This soup freezes well.  You can add cilantro and/or sour cream when you serve the soup.

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good;  blessed is the man who trusts Him!

Psalm 34:8

I found this recipe posted in a magazine.  It was developed by a teenager.  The combinations and possibilities are endless and it tastes like homemade, long cooked fudge like your grandma used to make.

Prepare a 8 x 8 pan by placing parchment paper inside the pan.  You can also spray the paper with some nonstick spray.

1 14oz. can Sweetened Condensed Milk – I even used the low fat version and it worked just as well

1 14-16oz. bag of candy morsels – semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, chocolate mint, etc.

Mix all of this together in a large microwave safe bowl.  Microwave in one minute intervals, stirring after every minute until all the morsels are melted.

Optional: Stir into the melted morsels chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, pistachios, peanuts, etc.), butter brittle chips, coconut, dried fruits.

Pour this mixture into the 8 x 8 pan and place in the refrigerator to harden.  After it has hardened allow to sit at room temperature overnight so it can dry out.  Lift the fudge out of the pan with the paper.  Place on a cutting board, peel off the paper and slice into pieces. Store in an air tight container.  Enjoy.

So God created man in his own image,in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.  Genesis 1:27

We have had over 100 lbs. of rice donated to the Manna Meal Free meal Program.  I tested a new recipe to help use some of the rice.  Since we cook for about 200 meals each week, it is really a pain to have to cook rice in the traditional way on top of the stove.  I took a recipe that we have for using uncooked macaroni and letting the casserole sit overnight and replaced the macaroni with rice.  Since rice takes more cooking liquid I increased the liquid.  It came out great.  The variations on this are endless.

2 cups uncooked rice

4 cups water or stock

2 cups of:  chicken, ham, broccoli or mixed vegetables

2 10 oz. cans of cream soup:  mushroom, celery, chicken or even tomato soup (if using large cans use 1/2 of a 50 oz. can of soup)

2-3 cups of shredded cheese or 1/2 lb. processed cheese such as Velveeta-cubed

4 hard boiled eggs – optional and I did not use them

salt and pepper to taste

Could add other seasonings as desired:  garlic, onion, chili powder (tomato soup)

Mix all ingredients together and place in a 9 x 13 pan or half sheet pan.  Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight.  Take out and uncover the next day.  Bake at 325′ for 1 hour.  You may want to stir this after about 30 minutes.  You can top this with additional cheese or bread crumbs the last 10-15 minutes if desired.  This serves 12-15.

This multiplies well.  If you add meat this could be a main dish, with vegetables a great side.

Variations:

1.   Rice with diced tomatoes and broth to make the amount of liquid needed: onions, chili powder and peppers for Spanish style rice.

2.  Rice with chicken broth for the liquid, cream of chicken soup, cooked chicken.  Could add broccoli, peas/carrots, or mixed vegetables for main dish.

3.  Rice with ham and ham broth for the liquid, cream of mushroom soup.  Could add broccoli, green beans, mushrooms, etc.

4.  Rice with water for the liquid, cream of mushroom soup.  Add broccoli and/or mushrooms for a great side dish.

5.  Rice with water for liquid.  Bacon and/or sausage, chopped hard boiled eggs.  Add onions, peppers, mushrooms, etc. for a breakfast style casserole.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Psalm 139:  13-14

Sorry I have not posted in a long time, but I have had some serious health issues for a year.  I am back and hope to share more recipes, hints/tips, etc. on this blog.  I was able to get the second cookbook finished while I was not feeling so well.  It has a lot of the recipes from the first cookbook with about 120 new recipes added.  The book contains 300 recipes.  I have personally prepared each of these recipes.  We have a Facebook page at:  Family Favorites II:  Second Helpings.

The books are $15.00 and with shipping they are $18.00.  If you order more than one I can calculate the shipping.  The profits from the book are donated to a local free meal program. I also have set up Paypal, so you can pay online, mail a check or money order.  If you mail payment the book will not be shipped until I receive payment.

Some of favorite recipes in the book are:  Baked French Toast, Cream Cheese Danish, Herbal Cheesecake,  Cottage Cheese Salad,  Carrot Dressing Casserole, Bean Enchilada Bake, Amish Friendship Bread, Candy Bar Cheesecake, Quick Peanut Butter Fudge and White BBQ Sauce.

These would make unique Christmas Presents.  I will sign the books as a free bonus.
