Hi sisters -- After reading Susie's post on "favorite meal(s)" I got hungry. So I thought we can start a chain where we can post our favorite food recipe, that way the rest of us can learn to make new meals. :) What is your (secret) favorite food recipe?

Don't be shy and share. :) This can help sisters going through chemo too!

(it can be a sweet or food recipe)

well, I'd have to share my breakfast tostadas:

You'll need:

2 eggs (organic if possible)
2 corn tortillas
about 1/4 cup salsa (any kind)
about 1/2 cup black refried beans (organic if possible)
about 1/2 cup of low fat cheddar cheese
some avocado slices

Get a pan and drizzle some olive oil in it. Warm tortillas on each side and put them on a plate. Put some warmed refried beans on each. Prepare eggs sunny side up or I like them over easy and place one each on top of each tortilla. Drizzle warm salsa on top, sprinkle cheese and top with slices of avocado...then enjoy with some good coffee.

Hugs and blessings!

As for me... well.. I have never been much to cook.. I don't like it at all. Wish I did. Especially now. Maybe some of your super recipes will help me out. Thank you all. My best recipe is probably for potato salad.

I don't really measure but here goes:

6-8 white rose pot. med size or large cubed
4-6 eggs cubed
cup up small celery (as much as you like)
1 cucumber cubed like the celery
some sweet onion
My mother put in a can of baby peas but not me

mix Mayo ( i use Miracle Whip) with some milk to thin it out and a dash or so of yellow mustard

Mix it up and cool for a couple hours.

Wish I could give you a better recipe for it. Hope you will like it. My husband loves it.

Hugs to All,

This is comfort food for me...and super easy!


3-4 boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips
32 oz. can chicken broth
10 oz. can cream of chicken soup
1 can Pillsbury flaky biscuits

Cook chicken breasts in broth until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside. Stir cream of chicken soup into gently boiling broth. Pull biscuits apart into three or four layers. Dip each layer into flour and then tear each layer into three pieces and drop into gently boiling broth mixture. Absolutely do not stir biscuits a lot, or they will disappear, only gently push dumplings down into broth as they float to the top. Cook about ten minutes after last dumplings are added. Add cooked chicken and turn on low until ready to serve. Add a little pepper if desired.

I call it a "fancy potato" soup. When doing Chemo and everything tasted nasty. I figured if we tried a completely new recipe, I'd have no pre-conceptions on what taste it was going to have. So here is my fancy potato soup. Had it several times during chemo and then my husband decided some shrimp would be good in the soup. I ate around the shrimp because my tummy was still doing loops. I fixed it again a few nights ago...it's still good!

Brown 4 slices of bacon - make it crispy bacon and chop for topping when serving the soup.

1 Can Chicken Broth
3-4 diced potatoes
stalk of celery
frozen corn thawed (I used canned) and drain

*boil until all is tender

Mix 1/2 cup mayonaise
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk

** Add this mixture to the potatoes and heat until thickened.
***Add the chopped bacon on top of each serving....YUMMMY. Don't skip the bacon!

Sorry about the amounts, I dont use them :))

Corn tortillas (8 or 10) depends on the size of the lasagna
Roasted chicken (I bought it on WalMart or else)shredded
Salsa -I make it but you can buy the one you like, any color, taste or heat.
Sour cream or Mexican cream if you find it -this is a little sweeter-
Cheddar cheese

Cut tortillas in wide stripes
Lithglty fry them on olive oil
Cover the bottom of a pyrex -or another one- with a little salsa. Then start laying the tortillas covering all the bottom.
Then cover the tortillas with shredded chicken, then pour some of the sour cream and then salsa and cover this with cheese.
Keep doing this until you fill all the pyrex, finishing with cheese.
Put it in the oven at 350 for about 35 to 40 minutes or until heat through and cheese is bubbling.

This is so delicious and easy to make, you can change it a little using green salsa instead of red or beef instead of chicken, you can sprinkle some oregano or cilantro, change to mozarella, goat, quesadilla or another cheese. Be brave, be creative!!

Hope you enjoy it!!!

1 pound ground beef or meatless (I like boca)
1 15 oz can kidney beans
30 oz tomato sauce
6 oz tomato paste
2-3 carrots
1/2 medium onion
1 yellow or red bell pepper
2-3 ears of corn
2-3 celery sticks
1-2 medium tomatos
2 tbs brown sugar
2 tbs chilli powder
celery salt
black pepper

I saute the onion and bell pepper in olive oil while browning the meatless. Then simmer it all for a couple of hours. I also use it for sloppy joes.

I put the meat version next to the meatless next to each other on a plate and my Mother in Law could not tell them apart.

5 WHOLE CHICKEN BREAST – SPLIT AND DEBONED (5 lbs. – my butcher sells big breasts)

Butter and Pepper and Salt

Three Packages of 3-1/2 oz each package of Slice Almonds (or one 10-1/2 oz. package)
1 tsp. Curry Powder (I use McCormick brand)
2 tsps. Soy Sauce (I use Kikkoman Soy Sauce)
2 Cups Hellmans Mayonaise
2 cups celery sliced (do not slice thick) (I use Organic celery.)
3 (6 oz cans) of Water Chestnuts (Whole) – First dry each water chestnut with a paper towel. Whole and then slice as to how you want it to taste
2 lbs. Green Seedless Grapes (I use Organic Seedless Green Grapes) – grapes should be firm.

Brush breasts with butter. Then salt and pepper chicken. (I use Sea Salt Flakes and crushed them with my fingers. Brand: Cypress from William Sonoma…and I use Ground Pepper from the Peppermill Brand: Whole Tellicherry Peppercorns by Kirkland – from Costco)
Cover with foil – bake 350 oven for 1 hour. Let it totally cool. Discard the skin. Then, cut into bite size pieces.

Coat almonds in butter. Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 oven just until slightly brown. Then cool. I buy almonds from Trader Joe’s. You want the sliced almonds with the brown skin on the sliced edges.

A few hours before serving (or 1 day before serving), mix

1 tsp. curry powder
2 cups Hellman’s Mayonnaise
2 tsps. Kikkoman Soy Sauce=

Add celery, water chestnuts, and grapes
Add chicken
Add almonds.
Serve chilled

It will keep one week in your refrigerator.
