Trim your chicken breasts and cut into bitesize chunks. In a medium bowl, mix together milk and eggs. Add chicken and make sure all chicken is coated.
Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours.

Hawaiian Burgers (my hubbys co-worker)

My hubby is guilty!!

Guilty of contributing to an addict!!

My hubby came home the other day with a couple recipes from a co-worker. He knows I have an addiction for recipes so my eyes lite up and I went to the grocery store the next day for a few ingredients and viola!!! Buns
Hamburger Patties or ground beef to shape your own
Onion slices
Tomato slices
Bacon (peppered is best)
Pineapple rings
Jalapeno slices
Teriyaki sauce
Cook patties brushing teriyaki on both sides while cooking. Cook bacon. When patties are almost done put the pineapple on top of patty and put a jalapeno in the middle of the pineapple ring. Cover with cheese. Butter buns & toast them. Serve with toppings.

* cheese could be whatever you prefer. I like pepperjack or provolone.

This is a great burger that tastes different than the norm.

Shredded Pork Taco

I know I know I do a lot of tacos or the like there of, but my kids love anything on tortillas. They could live off tortillas & cheese alone if I would let them.
Anyways I got this recipe years ago and have added to it as the years go on. This is so easy... its also crock pot YES!!! Simple!!

12 boneless pork chops
1 large RED enchilada sauce
Shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream
Green enchilada sauce
Opt. Toppings: Corn, jalapenos, etc.

Ok the big cooking instructions. Place pork chops in crock pot. Pour enchilada sauce over it and let it cook 7-8 hours on low heat. The longer you cook them the more tender the meat will be. After its cooked pull out pork & shred with fork. Put on tortilla top with cheese, sour cream, (or opt. toppings) and drizzle with GREEN enchilada sauce. Roll up and enjoy. The plates always end up clean :) Yields: 6-8 servings DONT FORGET TO TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT OUR GIVEAWAY!!! AS SOON AS WE HIT 125 FOLLOWERS WE WILL DRAW A # FROM OUR COMMENTS ON THE GIVEAWAY POST.

Crock pot Chicken Dinner

Football has officially begun!!! So Sundays now include a game or two or ten :) yes I'm a good wife .... actually I think I usually turn the game on before my hubby does. I don't want to be slaving in the kitchen during a game! But yet I still want a nice Sunday dinner. Did you know you can cook a chicken or a lil turkey in the crock pot?? Well you can!! Sunday morning I put it in before church and 7-8 hours later boom dinner is served. All you have to do is season the 5-8 lb poultry. Place 4 balls of tinfoil in the bottom of the crock pot. Place poultry on tinfoil. Turn crock pot on low heat and cook until at temperature (7-8 hours) When meat is done pull it out of crock pot. Take tinfoil out too. You should have juices for gravy. Thicken for gravy. It is so good we never have leftovers :) Yields: 6 servings


Individual Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Where I live the weather is starting to change, the leaves are changing colors, and the kids have started playing little league football. So with all these changes my cravings start to change too. Fall to me = pumpkin like Christmas =eggnog & cinnamon :) This is a great recipe that I have been using for years.

18 gingersnap cookies
12 oz. cream cheese, softened*
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. corn starch
1 tsp. Pumpkin pie spice
2 eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/3 c. Karo light corn syrup

Beat cream cheese, sugar, corn starch, & pumpkin spice until well mixed. Add eggs, blend well. Add pumpkin & syrup. Beat for 1 more minute. Place baking cups in muffin tins. Place 1 gingersnap in each cup. Pour filling into cups on gingersnap. Bake @ 325 for 30-35 minutes. Chill for 1 hour. Garnish with cool whip & caramel topping. Yields: 18 cheesecakes * pay attention to the ounces. A reguar cream cheese is only 8 oz. I usually double this so I use 3 cream cheeses
