Here goes my #fandayfriday five recipes more recipes beyond the Best Damn Green Bean Casserole that I’d recommend trying out!

Chicken Scallpponi

chicken-scallopiniThe first time I had Chicken Scallopini,  it was at our local Ale House and was done by my favorite local chef.  As much as chef’s don’t like to tell you their secrets, the chef sat at our table and explained how to make the dish.  It make me love the recipe more, but it also made me even more loyal to the place I first had it!

I found this version of it online and it’s pretty similar to the recipe that I heard that day…Let me tell you now this isn’t health food.  This is all about the butter sauce and if anyone tells you any different they are lying!

Cheese Grits

Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman, is my favorite down home cooking chef.  I love watching her show and to see the ranch her family runs.

One of my all-time favorite recipes is her pork chops and cheese grits recipe.  My husband is a pretty picky eater but we’ve made this one probably 5 or 6 times since I discovered it!

Wine Slushie

A New Dawn posted this amazing wine slushie recipe and I tried it and loved it.  It’s one of those recipes that shows you icy drinks and fresh fruit and a wine that looks to be the only thing that could quench your thirst on a hot day.

Luckily too it’s amazingly easy to make, but be ware… this is the type of drink that doesn’t taste like wine so it’s a little dangerous and will hit you like a ton of bricks if you aren’t paying attention!

I even simplified the recipe by using frozen strawberries then put the leftovers into ice cube trays to save for later.

Microwave Peanut Brittle

I’m an admitted sugar addict and a few years back my sister in law introduced me to a microwave peanut brittle recipe.  I never thought I’d be one to be able to make my own candy, but this is so easy, you can’t help but to make it at home over and over again.

This is a great recipe to make for teachers and friends during the holiday.


Crockpot Apple Sauce

applesauceHave you ever seen the 80s movie Baby Boom?  In it the main character inherits a baby and makes the choice to move from the city to the country and eventually starts making baby apple sauce.  Strangely enough this was my inspiration for trying to find  an apple sauce recipe that I could make myself.

Perfect Easy Microwave Apple Sauce is the perfect mix of cinnamon and nutmeg and apples!
