toll house pie

from skip to my lou... just wanted to be able to reference it!

½ Cup butter (melted)

2 eggs

½ Cup flour

½ Cup sugar

½ Cup brown sugar

1 Cup chocolate chips

1 regular pie crust- not deep dish

Preheat oven to 325°. Melt butter then set aside. Beat two eggs in a mixing bowl until foamy(I beat with a whisk just well enough to see a few bubbles). Mix in sugars and flour. Slowly stir in butter and then chocolate chips. Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell. Bake for about 1 hour. This pie freezes beautifully. Serve warm with ice cream. YUMMY! This is such a simple pie and I am always asked for the recipe.


all i had was a deep-dish pie crust, so this is how i did it:

3 eggs
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

everything else, i did the same.  YUM!

chicken nuggets!

chicken has been my foe in the past. it has intimidated me and i've been afraid to eat it if i'm the one cooking. no longer!

1-2 lbs chicken tenderloin, cut into bite-sized pieces

1 cup self-rising flour
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt

combine the flour, garlic powder, and salt in a large bowl. toss the chicken in the flour mixture to coat well.

in a large pan, melt 1/2 stick of butter 2 tbsp canola oil. when that's hot, toss in 5 cloves of chopped garlic, followed by the chicken. cook 5-10 minutes until chicken is done.
