Recipes from Kelli

Kelli has been on a cooking binge.  It’s so hard for her getting home after a long shift and needing to make a supper.  She’s been crock potting meals.  She’s been prepping food the days before.  She’s been doing what she can so she doesn’t end up picking up take out.

I told her I’d love it if she would share some of the recipes and she has.  Here is Crack Chicken.

You can find the recipe HERE.

She also made these Hawaiian Ham Sliders.


You can find that recipe HERE.

With both of these recipes, Kelli made extra and then had leftovers the next day for Jason for lunch and for her to pack with and take to work.

The last recipe she is sharing comes from this book….

Kelli and I both love church cook books.

Kelli is like me and loves soup.  For me, salad and soup makes the perfect meal…or soup and a sandwich.

Kelli tried this Cheeseburger Soup recipe and thought is was pretty good.
I told Kelli to share recipes with us anytime.  Now that Kramer isn’t here, I don’t cook nearly as much as I used to.  I’m trying to figure out how to not make huge batches of food too.  That one I need to practice a lot more on.  If any of you have some good one or two people recipes or know of a resource for some, I’d love you to share with me.

    I like The Pioneer Woman’s lasagna. I do not cook the lasagna noodles and make it in glass bread pans and freeze uncooked. Just enough for a meal since neither of my kids care for it.

    I usually fix enough for four meals. I put two in the freezer and have the other two in consecutive days. Being by myself I can fix what suits my fancy. Or you could fix family size meals and trade the extras with your girls that way every one has something to share. Several of my friends do this with their sisters.

    Does she have an Instant Pot? I made this tonight. It was quick and delicious. https://spicecravings.com/chicken-lo-mein
    One night my son came over and we made ribs and mac and cheese:
    2 cups elbow macaroni or rotini
    3/4 cup milk
    1/2 cup mozzarella or Monterey jack cheese, grated
    1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
    2 cups chicken broth
    Add broth and pasta to 3-qt or larger Instant Pot. Seal lid. Select high pressure for 5 minutes. Quick release pressure. Add milk and cheese and stir. Season with salt and pepper. Don’t use pre-shredded cheese as it has anti-clumping agents.

    We also cut recipes I. Half if needed and then freeze for another night. There’s just us and we have a small freezer.
    If you get a chance, please ask Kelli why her crack chicken looks so.juicy compared to the on on pinterest? Hers looks so much yummier!
    Love and prayers

    One of my favorite food sites is bakingmischief.com. Her recipes almost always
    look tempting, and many are actually fast too. The best part? She has a weekly
    email newsletter that you can sign up for! Thank you for the reciipes, and thanks
    for asking the question, Jo! You have a treasure trove of links to 2 people
    recipes!

    Please keep bringing recipes for one or two. I used to cook for planned leftovers, but now we don’t use them up fast enough. We get tired of eating the same thing even in different forms.

    With my back issues and broken foot, I can only stand a few minutes, so I like crock pot, instant pot, or oven recipes that don’t require a lot of prep. One recipe we do like is the Dump Chicken Broccoli Casserole (every time I left the site to try to copy the link, it erased my comment). Everything gets thrown into a casserole dish uncooked, making it super easy.

    Thank you for any recipes you want to share.

    The links in this post don’t go anywhere…Pinterest says “something went wrong on our end. Sorry about that.”

    I love church cookbooks, too! I always pick them up when I see them at garage sales or on the free table at the library! Thanks for sharing!
