Since I was able to quit my job and come home, I've been really trying out new recipes and stuff. I've found I LOVE to cook, but not so much of a baker of sweet stuff, lol. Well, thought I would share some recipes with everyone, if you have any to share, I'd love to try them. :)

1 can frozen OJ concentrate, thawed

Oh, that Creamsicle pie does sound delicious (I love dreamsicles). I had to chuckle because you're the opposite of me. I could spend days and days baking (LOVE it when the holidays roll around...all those pies and cakes and cookies to bake), but don't care for cooking so much.

Here's an easy crock-pot recipe that my little guys love. It sounds odd because of the apricot preserves, but it's actually really good and they always ask for seconds.

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, lightly cooked (exterior) and cut into chunks.
2 jars of apricot preserves
1 bottle of bbq sauce (we use the honey flavored)
1/2 package of onion soup mix.

Cook on low for minimum of 8 hours. check to make sure it doesn't cook down and if necessary, add water.

You can cook rice or noodles to serve it over, or serve as is.

Rebekah your Creamsicle Pie sounds really good. I am going to try this next fall when we start our Wednesday Evening meals before our Wednesday evening Church activities.
