Okay so my sister use to make this all the time. I refused to even try it cause it had Oyster sauce in it. There couldn't possibly be anything that tasted good with oyster sauce in it. Well I finally gave in and this recipe quickly became a hit with me and my family. Definitely a must try at least once.

1 bunch green onions chopped
garlic salt (for taste)
1 T. Hot Chili sauce (I made the mistake of not getting hot once and it ruined it)
4-6 chicken breasts
1 good handful of Cilantro (chopped fine)
1 bottle Oyster sauce (I found this with asian food at walmart)
1 tsp Soy sauce

Cut up chicken to small cubed pieces. Cook in skillet, season with garlic salt. Once chicken is cooked add onions, cilantro, oyster sauce, chili sauce. Cook in skillet until warmed through. Add small amount of soy sauce. Serve with sticky rice.

Chicken Alfredo Fettucini

If you are a chicken Alfredo fan then this is a must try. This is by far the best recipe I have ever tried.

1/4 c. Butter
1/4 c. Olive oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1 lb. boneless chicken breast, cut up raw
1/2 c. Green onion
1 c. Whipping cream
1 envelope Alfredo sauce mix
12 oz Fresh sliced mushrooms
1 can (15oz) Diced Tomatoes Italian style (drained)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1/4 c. Parsley (I use fresh and chop it)
2 T Basil
1 pkg Fettucini Noodles
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese

Saute chicken in hot oils with garlic and onions til cooked thoroughly. Stir in cream, dry sauce mix, mushrooms, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Boil over hi heat. reduce heat, simmer 3-5 minutes or until sauce thickens. Stir in parsley and basil. Remove and serve over pasta sprinkled with cheese.

Baked Beans

This is by far my favorite baked bean recipe EVER. My Mom always made them and I think it is one of the few that I like. Jason hates baked beans and he actually will eat these too. I figured with it being spring and BBQ's then it was a good time to share this one.

Mom's Baked Beans
2 cans Pork and beans (29 oz cans)
1 green pepper chopped
1 c. brown sugar
1 lb Bacon Cooked and diced
1 onion chopped
1 c. ketchup
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Combine all ingredients, cook in oven 2325 for 3 hours or cook in crock pot for 6 hours.

Marinated Shredded Ham

With Easter coming up I thought I would finally post this. I had made it for Christmas Eve dinner and it was a huge hit. I was a little worried and ended up doing a second ham just to be safe. Well safe turned into massive leftovers. The baked ham didn't even get touched. This doesn't sound all that great but honestly it is so tasty. Great for Easter dinner, Christmas dinner or just cause you want ham.

Marinated Shredded Ham
Buy a bone in ham (whatever is on sale, shank or butt portion. I bought the cheapest I could find)

1 bottle of italian dressing
1 T ground mustard
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. molasses

Marinate in triple layer plastic bags for 3 days. Put ham in crock pot and pour the marinate over the top then bake in crock pot until it falls apart. About 10-12 hours.
*Depending on the size of the ham you may have to cover crock pot with foil for the first 6 hours or so until you can pull out bone and so the lid will fit on.


I love crepes and this is by far one of my favorite recipes. I have this awesome crepe pan that my Mom bought me years ago and it definitely makes it super easy. If you don't know what a crepe maker is then go HERE Of course they are discontinued but I am sure there is someplace that has something similiar. Anyway here is the recipe I use. We love to stuff them with strawberries and whip cream, homemade jam or syrup and powdered sugar.

3 eggs
1/2 c. water
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. milk
3 T. Butter
1/2 tsp. salt

Combine eggs, milk, water and butter in mixing bowl. Beat until combined. Add flour and salt. Beat until smooth. Refrigerate batter 1 hour (I never do this step). Drop desired amount in preheated pan and tilt pan around til it is coated. If crepe has holes add a drop or two of batter. Cook until edges are lightly browned and top is dry. Loosen edges with spatula and tip pan over and crepe should fall right out. If necessary loosen the center of the crepe to help ease it off.
