Chicken Angelo

Don't forget to enter the Whirley Pop giveaway.  It ends tomorrow!

Am I the only person that asks their friends what they're making for dinner all the time?  That's kind of why I started this blog, because I want to know what my friends are making for dinner.

The other day I asked my friend, Juli (who is great cook), what she was making for dinner.  She told me she was making Chicken Angelo.   Then she told me what's in it.  I knew I had to try it too because she has some picky eaters at her house like I do.   I figured if they'll eat it then maybe it was worth a try at my house.
This Chicken Angelo pasta has my favorite things, artichoke hearts and mushrooms in it.  But don't be fooled into thinking that my family likes these things too.  Because they don't.  They won't touch an artichoke or mushroom with a ten foot pole.

That being said, my family loved this pasta dish.  They even gave me the go ahead to make it again.  They loved the chicken and noodles.  And I got to eat all the mushrooms and artichokes, which was okay with me.

Don't leave the artichokes and mushrooms out.  They add yummy flavor to the sauce.  You just don't have to make the haters at your house eat them.

These noodles actual taste yummier as leftovers, so this is a great make ahead dish.  Make it in the morning and let the flavors intensify in the fridge until you warm it back up at dinnertime.

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil

Havreflarn (Swedish Oat Crisp Cookies)

We had some teenagers over for a Swedish themed dinner last night.  They were participating in a "missionary for a day" activity.  They were paired up into companionships, like the official missionaries for our church and were assigned to a family for dinner.  They ate with us and then taught us a lesson about Heavenly Father's plan for us.   My husband served a mission in Sweden.  He lived there for two years and loved it.  Swedish meatballs are a staple at our house.  (They're super easy to make and my pickiest eater's favorite!).  When we visit IKEA we usually stock up on the cream gravy packets and jars of Lingonberries.  We were out of lingonberry, but after a few phone calls, I found some at one of our local grocery stores. We ate meatballs, gravy, lingonberry, mashed potatoes (I ran out of time, other wise I would have steamed little red potatoes from our garden) and green beans (though my husband doesn't remember eating them in Sweden
