Meatball sauce:
3/4 bottle of grape jelly
1 bottle of homemade chili sauce
1 tablespoon of lime juice
30-60 meatballs

Cook the meatballs in the crockpot for 3-4 hours on high or 5-6 on low. Make sure they are covered with the sauce, continue to stir throughout. Serve with mashed potatoes and a veggie.
* use the left over meatballs for a meatball sandwhich. It's great for an appetizer too!

This is one of my favorites that my mother in law makes, hope you love it too!

Bread Stick Tip

I just wanted to say thank you for the meals for this month. I'm sorry I wasn't able to make it last night. We lost our game by the way... ha ha. All the meals look so yummy. I'm very excited to eat them. So thank you all, and thank you Chelsea for bringing my meals and picking the others up. I know that probably was a huge pain.

I also wanted to give you a tip for the bread sticks I included with my meal.  They come as long skinny dough strips.  I have found if you fold them in half so they are fatter and then twist them up to bake they are moist, soft and perfect, instead of crispy, crunchy-ish.  I sprinkle salad supreme on top before baking as well. So Yummy!!!

Hope you all have a great day!

Ranch Chicken


1 1/2 - 2 lbs Chicken
1 Ranch dressing packet
3/4 cup Crushed cornflakes
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup butter

Crush cornflakes and mix with parmesan cheese and ranch packet (I put these all in a bag together so just mix these in a bowl and move on to the next step). Dip thawed Chicken in melted butter and then in ranch/cheese/cornflake mixture.

Place in greased baking dish. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes.

Serve with rice and corn.

I also made and froze some of Danielle's amazing chocolate chip cookies for you. To bake these, thaw first (if you take them out and let them sit at room temperature they should thaw in less than an hour or you can put them in the refrigerator for a few hours to thaw), then bake at 375 degrees for 6-10 minutes. Below is Danielle's cookie recipe...

Danielle's Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c. Shortening
1/2 c. Sugar
1 c. Brown Sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 1/4 cups of flour
1 c. Choc. Chips
1/2 c. coconuts - optional
1 c. nuts - optional

Whip after each ingredient,but don't over mix. Also if you want, you can add just a little bit of shortening and sugars :). Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 min, or for my stove 6 minutes. You want to take them out when they still look a little undercooked. Once they are out, let them sit on the pan for a few minutes (this way they stay soft and the bottom is cooked enough).

Sweet Chicken Tacos

3-4 chicken breasts

1 can Rotel or petite diced tomatoes

1 can red enchilada sauce

1 can green chilies

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

garlic salt to taste

(this will be mild, for more heat, add crushed red peppers)

Place frozen chicken in crockpot. Mix the 1st 4 ingredients and pour over chicken. cook on high for 4-6 hours. when chicken is cooked through, shred and add the garlic salt. allow to soak for several minutes to add flavor.

Chicken Parmesan Bundles

4 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, well drained
1-1/4 cups Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese, divided
6 Tbsp. Grated Parmesan Cheese, divided
6 small boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 lb.), pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
1 egg
10 RITZ Crackers, crushed (about 1/2 cup)
1-1/2 cups spaghetti sauce, heated

HEAT oven to 375ºF.

MIX cream cheese, spinach, 1 cup mozzarella and 3 Tbsp. Parmesan until well blended; spread onto chicken breasts. Starting at one short end of each breast, roll up chicken tightly. Secure with wooden toothpicks, if desired.

*Everything is already done up to this point*

BEAT egg in shallow dish. Mix remaining Parmesan and cracker crumbs in separate shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg, then roll in crumb mixture to evenly coat. Place, seam-sides down, in 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.

BAKE 30 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF). Remove and discard toothpicks, if using. Serve chicken topped with spaghetti sauce and remaining mozzarella (I like to put it back in the oven to melt the mozzarella)

Serve with veggies and Enjoy. (Remember to take the toothpicks out)

*When I make this, I usually have enough sauce left over that we have spagetti the next day* :)

Easy Taco Soup

1 can chili (with meat and beans) 1 can whole kernel corn (with liquid)
1 can diced tomatoes (with liquid)
1 can tomato sauce
1 can black beans (with liquid)
1 1/2 to 3 tablespoons dry taco seasoning mix
This meal is SO easy. All you have to do is open all the cans and combine everything in a crockpot or a larger pot if you want to cook it on the stove top. I prefer it in the crockpot, but stove top works great too. Cook on low for 6-8 hours in the crockpot or just heat on the stove. When you are ready to serve dish up the soup into bowls then add a spoonful of sour cream and a handful of Fritos chips to your bowl and stir it up. The sour cream and chips just add a little extra to the yummy soup! Enjoy!!!
