This is a place I can organize recipes that my family has tried and likes. I did not make any of these recipes up myself - I am terrible in the kitchen and needed a place to help with my organization. Feel free to use this site and comment on the recipes you try!!

Tortilla Cookies

I got this recipe from a book called Simple Hospitality.

Flour Tortillas
Melted Butter

Cut your flour tortilla with your favorite cook cutter. Place the shapes on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Brush the tortillas with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 350 for about 6 minutes or until crispy.

The author also states that these little cookies are your friend all year round. Change the cookie shape or color of sugar to celebrate any holiday. For example use a heart shaped cookie cutter and red sugar for a great valentine's cookie.

My Two Cents Worth on This:
  • Oh My!! These are YUMMMY!
  • I love love love cinnamon toast and so these were right up my ally. I could not stop eating them!!

Chicken Parmesan Alfredo

I got this one off of a Ragu Alfredo Sauce label.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 egg beaten
3/4 cup Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
1/4 tsp paprika (optional)
1 jar cheese classic Alfredo sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzerella cheese
1 medium tomato, chopped

Preheat over to 400. Dip chicken in egg, then bread crumbs combined with paprika, coating the chicken well.

In 13x9 inch baking dish, arrange chicken. Bake uncovered 20 minutes.

Pour 1 cup sauce over chicken; top with cheese, then tomato. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked thru. Serve with remaining sauce heated and sprinkle, if desired, with grated Parmesan cheese.

My 2 cents worth on this:
  • I am not a tomato person, my husband is, so this was perfect, he could have it and I could easily not eat them.
  • We used the paprika but I am not sure it really made a difference.
  • I put the rest of the sauce in some cooked Ziti pasta and served the chicken over the pasta.
  • As soon as my husband ate this, he said - "we are having this again!"
  • We did not sprinkle any Parmesan cheese on but I could see how it could be good.
