to taste
to taste

  1. Boil the chicken breasts until they are cooked all the way.  Cut into cubes or shred.  *For quick and easy shredding use kitchen aid, while chicken is still hot*
  2. Combine all ingredients, except cheese into a large pot.
  3. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour.  Stir occasionally.  If too thick, add more chicken broth.
  4. Add cheese about 10 minutes before serving.  
Love this recipe...I try to keep these ingredients on hand, because it is so quick and easy to whip up.

Make sure to shred while chicken it is still hot!  It works like a charm.
Not the best picture, but it is super tasty.  We like to serve with additional cheese, sour cream and rolls.

Apple Slices with Teeth

Apple Slices
as many as you want
Peanut butter

Marshmallow Bits

4 cups
1/2 tsp

  1. Wash and slice your apples.
  2. Dissolve 1/2 tsp. salt in 4 cups cool water.  Allow your apples to soak for 5 minutes.  This will prevent them from browning.
  3. Smear peanut butter on one side of an apple slice with the peel facing forward.  Place the other apples slice on top, also with the peel facing forward...this makes the lips.
  4. Place the marshmallow bits along the edge of the apple in the peanut butter to make teeth.
  5. Chill and serve.
 Another fun snack for Halloween and pretty healthy too!

I ran out of time before the party, so mine weren't perfect, but they still were a big hit!

Mummy Dogs

Hot dogs
1 pkg 
Refrigerated Crescent rolls
1 pkg 


  1. Unroll and cut the crescent roll triangles into strips.
  2. Wrap the crescent roll strips around the hot dog.  Do a small section on the top for the hat, leave a space, and then do the rest for the body.
  3. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until the crescent rolls are golden.  
  4. Use ketchup or mustard to make dots for eyes.  Serve with whatever toppings you like.
These are so fun for the kids at husband even liked them too.

You may even want to cut the strips more narrow.  I stretched them a little skinner when I was wrapping the hot dogs.
