Good Food Good Mood

It is said that “You can’t just eat good food. You’ve got to talk about it, too.” (Kurt Vonnegut)  I have a wonderful mother in law who always makes the most delicious food. One Christmas many years ago, she put together a cookbook of all her favorite recipes. These recipes had been passed down to her from her angel mother, other cookbooks, many recipes collected over the years and recipes passed down from her sweet friends.  These cookbooks were given to all the families and was a terrific labor of love. It took her a longtime to compile which made the book even more special. It is now worn because of the frequency of how much we use it.  If I make a new recipe my family always asks if they have had it before and pull a concerning face. I believe you mothers know what I am talking about. If I say that it is one of grandma's, then they will usually try it and not complain.  I am now at the point where I can pass these recipes along to my girls as they start their own families.  If one of your goals this year is to make more homemade meals, here are a few mouth-watering suggestions.


Crock-Pot Sunday Chicken

4-6 boneless chicken breasts

2 cans cream of chicken soup-undiluted

1 envelope dry onion soup mix

1 cup sour cream

Cover and cook on high 4 hours or low 6-8 hours. One hour before serving stir in sour cream.



Chicken & Potato Dinner


2 lbs. skinless, boneless chicken breasts

1 lb. potatoes peeled and cut. (I’ve used red potatoes and leave the skin on.)

1 cup Italian dressing (more if you prefer)

1 Tbs Italian seasoning

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese (more if you prefer, which my family does)


Place chicken in 9 X 13 pan. Put Potatoes on top. Pour dressing over chicken and potatoes. Sprinkle with seasoning and top with Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil. Bake at 400 degrees for 2 hours.


There you have it, easy to make, yummy to eat. 

Love much,
