Chicken Taco Chili: My version from Pinterest

12 Nov Mexican Chicken Chili

I took a picture on Instagram yesterday of the crock-pot lunch I had made for Sunday lunch.

It has been a big hit on Facebook and even had a few requests for the recipe (keep reading to find my recipe!)

Well…..I found the idea on Pinterest (where else?), but I actually clicked on the picture and the link didn’t work, though this is what they had listed in the subject line: Continue reading

Lip Smackin’ Hashbrown Casserole

18 Feb Lip Smackin' Hasbrown Casserole

Our church, Trinity UMC, is celebrating its 10 yr. anniversary in May, and like all good churches, we are commemorating the milestone with a cookbook.  Being the pastor’s wife, I had a feeling I would not be excused from contributing.  The problem is that I am not a chef, gourmet cook, or foodie.  Oh, I can cook pretty well and I LOVE food, but I prefer to borrow recipes rather than come up with my own.  Without family, allrecipes.com, and pinterest, we might starve!  (Not really, but you get the idea.)

Perfect!  I figured I could create my Frankenstein casserole, turn in the recipe, and present a hopefully edible dish for the potluck.  I sent the hubs to the store armed with a list of double the ingredients so I could make a test batch for our dinner.  Here are the results! Continue reading
