Like most people I eat what I crave and sometime I just want good old comfy cozy food. Food that makes me want to get all wrapped up in a fuzzy blanket and lay on the couch and read a good book.

I found both of these recipes on a GREAT blog called Pioneer Woman. She is a hilarious lady who loves to cook for her family and have fun while doing so. I’ve tried 4 of her recipes and have LOVED all of them. I’ll definetly be posting more of them in the future so stay tuned. In the meantime you should check her out for yourself at:


The above photo is of her Chicken Spaghetti and Mystery Rolls…..mmmmmm……..I’m cravin’ them again already 🙂


Chicken Spaghetti
2 cups cooked chicken ( 1 whole chicken cut up or 4 chicken breasts)
2 cans Cream of Mushroom soup
2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup finely diced green pepper
1/2 cup finely diced onion

1-4 oz jar diced pimentos, drained
3 cups dry spaghetti, broken into two inch pieces
2 cups reserved chicken broth from pot
1 teaspoon Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 additional cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

Cook chicken in boiling water and then shred the meat. Cook spaghetti in same chicken broth until al dente. Do not overcook. When spaghetti is cooked, combine with remaining ingredients except additional 1 cup sharp cheddar. Place mixture in casserole pan and top with remaining sharp cheddar. Cover and freeze up to six months, cover and refrigerate up to two days, or bake immediately: 350 degrees for 45 minutes until bubbly. (If the cheese on top starts to get too cooked, cover with foil.) I used 2 9″ round pans and froze one of them for later.


Mystery Rolls

1/2 c. butter
2-3 ounces crumbled blue cheese
1 can Pillsbury flaky biscuits

Combine butter and cheese on baking pan. Place into 350 oven for a couple of minutes, or until butter is melted. Remove from oven and stir. Cut biscuits into fourths, then toss in butter mixture. Bake on same pan (or different, if you prefer) for 8 to 12 minutes, or until golden. Eat warm.

Mmmm, I’ve been wanting to make that casserole, but we try not to eat meat at home. It’s recipes like this, though, that make me regret that sometimes. ; )
