4 new recipes!!!!

I've tried 4 new recipes lately and we have liked them all! One of them, Corn and broccoli bake is going to get some revisions just because I want to try it, but it's still good the way it is!

Lazy Day Cake is simple. I made it this morning before church so we would have it for dessert at lunch.

1 yellow cake mix (I used butter)
1 stick melted butter
1 package chocolate chips
2 beaten eggs

Mix all together and sperad in 13/9 pan sprayed with pam. Bake at 350 for 20 mins or til it starts to get golden brown on top.

Arkansas Green Beans are also simple! I have no idea why they are called Arkansas Green Beans. You basically take an otherwise very healthy can of green beans and make them as unhealthy as you can....that being said, they are great!

1 large can green beans drained
4 pieces bacon cut in to small bite sized pieces and cooked in the microwave (save grease and stir in!!)
1/2 c brown sugar
1/3 cup soy sauce
Mix all altogether adn bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or til hot.

Like I said, pretty unhealthy but AWESOME!

Corn and Broccoli bake is something I found in a cookbook I have had for years. For some reason I flipped through it the other day and I landed on this and thought it sounded good. I like it because it doesn' t have any 'cream of soups' in it !

1 can regular corn drained
1 can ceram style corn
1 package steamfresh frozen broccoli
1 box chicken in a bicuit crackers
5 Tablespoons melted buttrt

Crush crackers and mix with butter. Line bottom of baking dish with this, reserving some for the top. Partially cook broccoli in microwave (I cooked mine for about 3 minutes)  Mix 2 cans of corn with broccoli. Pour over crackers and put reserved cracker butter mixture on top . Bake at 350 for about 30 misn or until heated throughout.

Variations Coy and I want to try: Using ritz crackers instead of chicken in a biscuit and then omitting the crackers and using a box of stove top stuffing.

I'll keep you posted as to how they come out!

I also had a neato frito salad Friday at work.    Sounds weird but everyone liked it!

I'm just cutting andpasting straight from the email I got the recipe from...Tabitha Hale brought it..again....sounds like weird ingredients but they are awesome mixed together!

2 cans of corn drained

1 green bell pepper chopped
1 bag (2cups) of shredded cheese
1 small purple onion chopped (I leave this out because I don't like onions)
1 bag of Frito chili cheese chips
Mayo or Miracle whip

Directions from Tabitha:
I mix all ingredients together except the chips (they will get soggy if you do). I add chips and stir right before serving. I use mayo to taste you can make it really thick, I like mine thin.
