Yummy recipes!!

After a very busy and productive day a couple easy but really yummy recipes are perfect for dinner and a goodie to warm up the house.

My kids love love spaghetti and who can go wrong with this yummy casserole. It is super easy and I always have these ingredients on hand to make one.

Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

3 cups of cooked, cubed chicken

8 ounces spaghetti, broken into pieces

1/2 cup onion

1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup

1/4 cup milk

1/2 cup sour cream

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

salt and pepper to taste

Put uncooked spaghetti in a large pot of boiling water. Let simmer, stirring occassionally for 8 to 10 minutes or until pasta is done. Drain.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a large bowl combine all ingredients except 1 cup of cheese. Spread mixture in a casserole dish and bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake for another 15 minutes.

My hubby's absolute favorite cookie is Peanut Butter. They are super easy to make and this is the recipe that I always use.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

1 cup butter

1 1/4 cup peanut butter

1 cup white sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

2 3/4 all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 baking soda

Cram together butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in eggs

In seperate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Stir into batter. Refrigerate for about an hour. Roll into 1 inch balls and put on sheets. Flatten with a fork, making a criss cross pattern.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes. Do not over bake.
