Dinner Bell! - Not Your Mama's Baked Potato

Found this idea on Pinterest and boy am I glad I gave it a try! Delicious! 

And the kids kept saying it tasted like yummy french fries.:)

~Method Preheat the oven to 220˚C (425˚F). 

~Put the potato on a chopping board, flat side down. Start from one end 

of the potato, cut almost all the way through, at about 3 to 4 mm 


~Arrange the potatoes in a baking tray and insert the garlic in between 

the slits. 

~Scatter some butter on top of each potato. 

~Bake the potatoes for about 40 minutes or until the potatoes turn crispy 

and the flesh is soft.

Mac & Cheese
from the kitchen of Cathy Cordero

2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni (this will be more than an 8oz box)
4 Tbsp butter, cut into pieces
3 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 can condensed cheddar cheese soup
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup whole milk
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp black pepper

~Boil macaroni in plenty of water about 7 min (you still want it be slightly firm). Drain.

~In lg saucepan heat butter, cheese and milk until cheese melts.

~Add sour cream, soup, salt, pepper and dry mustard stirring on low heat until hot.

~Mix with cooked pasta and pour into a buttered baking dish. (I used a 9x13)

~Bake at 4oo until bubbly and brown.

**I'm going to experiment with different cheese next time! Can you say "chipotle cheddar"?! Or I might add bacon and garlic...the possibilities are endless!

Dinner Bell! better late then never...Chicken Fettucine

Chicken Fettuccine
from the kitchen of Rhonda Blair via Cathy Cordero ;)


2/3-1 cup butter depending on taste (but truthfully I'm pretty sure I use 2 whole sticks:))
1 onion sliced
2 Tbsp Basil
1 tsp fresh garlic
salt & pepper

~combine in a large casserole dish (bigger than a 9x13) & melt in a 350 degree oven until onions are brown (about 15-20 mins)

1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 chicken bouillon cube

~Place 4-6 chicken breasts (I like to use the frozen chicken tenders from Costco (use more than 4-6) since they cook faster.) in dish and cook at 375 degrees for about 45 mins turning 2-3x.

~Cook 1 pound of fettuccine noodles separately. Drain & mix into dish with the finished chicken (cut up). 

*Most times I add a can of drained corn as well.
