    My tried and true company recipe is Chicken Laredo and Spanish Rice. Everyone raves about it, and its the first meal I ever made for my fiance. We’ve been together 2 1/2 years now and he still asks for it once in a while.

    This is one of my recipes that my sister passed on to me. I make it a lot for work (we have potluck every Thursday) and for Creative Cutups (my scrapbooking crop).

    Sweet and Sour Meatballs:
    1 bag frozen homestyle meatballs
    2 jars sweet and sour sauce
    1 each green, yellow, and red bell pepper, sliced
    1 yellow onion quartered and separated (you can leave this out if you want…i love onions)
    1 can of pineapple chunks with juice

    Place all ingredients in crock pot. Stir until everything is well coated. Cook until meatballs are heated thoroughly.

    My sister loves these over rice or with mashed potatoes but I usually just serve them out of the crock pot by themselves.

    LOVE your recipes!

    I made this when I had my neighbor ladies over for a “spoil me” luncheon. I made oodles of appetizers but this was my main dish. It was perfect, inexpensive, light, healthy, super tasty and easy to make for a crowd. I found it in Real Simple Magazine, it’s called:

    1 pound dry spaghetti or fettuccine

    3 tablespoons olive oil (divided use)

    4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

    2 jalapeños, seeded and thinly sliced (optional)

    Grated zest of 1 lemon, yellow part only

    1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

    1 ½ cups frozen peas, thawed (or less, if it’s all you have)

    1 teaspoon kosher salt

    1/8 teaspoon black pepper

    1/3 cup (2 ounces) grated Parmesan (optional)

    Cook the pasta according to the package directions. While the pasta is cooking, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, jalapeños (if using) and lemon zest, and cook until the garlic is golden but not browned, 4 to 5 minutes.

    Drain the pasta and add it to the skillet with the lemon juice, peas, salt, pepper and remaining oil. Heat until warmed through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the pasta to individual plates and sprinkle with the Parmesan, if desired. Makes 4 servings.

    I just love your blog. We are currently having a new kitchen fitted and believe it or not our oven has just broken. It could have waited another two weeks!!! Can’t wait for our new oven to be installed. I like to make desserts and everyones favourite is my pavlova.

    Mine include a classic potato salad (normally minus the onions, which is when people seem to like it more), semi-homemade chocolates, stuffed mushrooms, and my lasagna – all extremely easy to make food, some from “Betty” and other cook books… but they seem to be “my” thing. Oh, and our family’s fav – cream corn.
