Chicken Supreme aka “Grandma’s Chicken”

Okay here’s the recipe  It’s really easy and I have never had anyone say they don’t like it.


Chicken Supreme aka “Grandma’s Chicken”

1 jar Dried Beef (found in the canned meat section of the grocery store. it comes in a glass jar, normally near top shelf. It looks kind of like large pepperoni but thinner and different color)
Chicken Breasts- skinned and boned (up to 12 breasts)
Bacon- not cooked

Gravy/Sauce topping

1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
1 8 oz container Sour Cream
(I double the sauce and use it for mashed potatoes)

Place dried beef in bottom of baking dish, whatever size will fit the number of chicken breasts you are making. I use a large casserole dish. Put chicken breasts (cut in half if desired, I cut mine) on dried beef. Then place 1/2 to full slice of bacon on each piece of chicken.

Bake in oven 400F for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and Pour off any grease.

Mix equal parts sour cream and cream of mushroom soup together. Pour over chicken, Then return to oven.

Bake on 350F an additional 30 minutes.

 And the leftovers if you have any… reheat and slice it to fit on club crackers… awesome for a quick small meal.

Fresh Guacamole



Homemade Guacamole

~By my daughter

2 ripe Avocados

1/2 teaspoon cracked Sea Salt

Dash cracked Black Pepper

1 tablespoon fresh Lemon Juice

1/4 Onion minced

1/2 Tomato chopped- remove pulp and seeds

Other spices can be added to your taste if you like spicy. Blend all ingredients together and serve with chips.

My daughter told me, “Hey mom, while you are at the store would you pick up 2 avocados for me? I want to make guacamole.” I looked at her and said, “Um, okay. Need anything else?” She said no. So I picked up what she wanted and to the kitchen she went. All fresh ingredients, no packets or anything like that.

I fess, I have never really liked guacamole very much, honestly. But when she was done she said, “Here mom you have to try it.” Okay lol, guess I have to, I thought to myself. 😉

You know what? It’s REALLY good!  She did a good job and her and I added it to the family recipe book. 

This pic is a little plate she made for Craig.  He likes it lol! 🙂

“Cupid’s Arrow” appetizers

I interrupt a serious PTSD day to bring you a reminder….

It’s now February!
Which means all of those cute hearts and love in the air… okay moving on 😉

Here is an easy appetizer that you can make at home if you have a party, child school function, or are staying in for Valentine’s Day this month…

Little Smokie sausages
Your favorite block cheese

Heat sausages and cut in half at an angle. Place the two halves together (points together) to make a “heart”. Cube cheese into small cubes. Cut part of cheese cubes in half at an angle (triangles) to make “arrow points”. Other cubes of cheese are for back of “arrow”. Slide onto skewers and wallah… you have cupid’s arrow appetizers!

Carrot Souffle

Carrot Souffle

Okay, word of advice, double this recipe or use a smaller dish! I forgot to double, so my souffle is a little thin compared to what it should look like, but it will still be good 

1 pound large carrots peeled and sliced (7 lg carrots)
1/2 cup butter melted
3 eggs
1 cup sugar (use less if desired)
3 tablespoons self rising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cook carrots in small amount of water salted until tender. Drain off water. Mash carrots and butter together. Add remaining ingredients, stir together. Pour into greased 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.

Bake 350 degrees F 45 minutes or until set.

Great served hot as a side dish or cold as a dessert!

A must do for the holidays! This is what I made today! These are easy, quick to make, and you can alter the recipe for whichever cookie dough you like and toppings! I am going to freeze some so I can pull them out when needed for the holiday season! I used chocolate chip cookie dough, strawberry topping, and drizzled it with chocolate syrup. Also made another batch with dark chocolate cookie dough!

Homemade Zucchini Bread

With the holidays approaching I have decided to get back to the things I use to do…and baking is one of them! When Craig’s medical became so rough and things got tight I stopped baking for the most part. This year I am making it my mission to get back to it. 😉 I use to make platters of goodies every year and deliver them to our neighbors during the holidays. Everyone always loved the selection of homemade goodies. So, to start off my baking season I thought I would add some of my recipes that I absolutely love! Today I baked homemade zucchini bread! Find the time in the busy world of PTSD and bake something…I know it will be enjoyed! 😉

P.S. You would NEVER know this had zucchini squash in it! It’s sweet and yummy! 😉
