    Apple Dip (so good you can eat it with a spoon)

    8 oz cream cheese, softened
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    Mix together and let stand 15 minutes. Then add:
    1/4 cup white sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    6 oz toffee chips
    Stir togeher and regrigerate 4-6 hours.

    If you eat this the first day you make it, the toffee chips add a little crunch. If it's later on, the toffee chips dissolve more and it becomes more creamy, like caramel. Good either way. It'll last in your fridge for several weeks.

    Chicken Bundles

    2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cut into small pieces (or I use 6 tenders--they cook faster)
    4 oz. cream cheese, softened (I prefer "onion & chive" flavor)
    1 Tblspn. butter
    1-2 Tblspn. chives (I omit, since I use the flavored cream cheese)
    1 can crescent rolls
    6 Tblspn melted butter
    Italian breadcrumbs

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, 1 Tblspn. butter, salt, pepper and chives (optional). Stir in chicken.
    Separate crescent dough into rectangles (2 triangles pressed together so no holes are showing).
    Spread each rectangle with 1/4 chicken mixture. Roll dough around mixture and pinch edges to seal.
    Put melted butter in one small bowl, and bread crumbs in another.
    Roll chicken bundles in butter and then in breadcrumbs. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
    Serve with gravy. (I never do this, because I am not a huge gravy fan--and I don't tell Marc it's an option! Shhhh!)
    Makes 4 chicken bundles--but can easily be adjusted for more!

    Broccoli and Cheese soup (just like you would get in a restaurant! SO good!)

    * 1/2 cup butter
    * 1 onion, chopped
    * 1 (16 ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli
    * 4 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
    * 1 (1 pound) loaf processed cheese food, cubed
    * 2 cups milk
    * 1 tablespoon garlic powder
    * 2/3 cup cornstarch
    * 1 cup water


    1. In a stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion in butter until softened. Stir in broccoli, and cover with chicken broth. Simmer until broccoli is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
    2. Reduce heat, and stir in cheese cubes until melted. Mix in milk and garlic powder.
    3. In a small bowl, stir cornstarch into water until dissolved. Stir into soup; cook, stirring frequently, until thick.


    Mmmm, mmmm GOOD!!! I read all the reviews before making it and did a few "tweaks" to the recipe and I am blissfully happy with the results. Keeper recipe! Here are the "tweaks" that I made: I covered the broccoli with THREE cans of chicken broth instead of four. I used TWO bags (14 oz) of broccoli florets I used TWO lbs of Velveeta (actually I used the generic grocery brand, it was cheaper) Instead of mixing cornstarch with water, I mixed it with the FOURTH can of chicken broth.

    Great White Punch

    1 small can limeade
    11 c. water
    3 c. sugar

    Combine all 3 ingredients and freeze at least 24 hours in advance (but obviously can be done LONG in advance).
    Remove from freezer one hour before serving.
    Break/cut into chunks and serve in punchbowl with 7-Up (1-2 liters)
    **Can add food coloring before freezing if you want it to be a specific color to match "theme"

    Fruit Pizza

    2 rolls sugar cookie dough--roll into a large circle and bake according to package directions

    8 oz. cream cheese
    1/2 can crushed pineapple, drained WELL
    powdered sugar, to taste

    Mix together and spread on top of cooled sugar cookie "crust"

    Top the "pizza" with various fruits. Strawberries (or any berry), sliced kiwi, mandarin oranges, etc. all work well. If you arrange in a pattern, the pizza can be quite a pretty presentation--a real show-stopper!

    Crock Pot Ribs by lilbug13

    1 package baby back pork ribs- uncooked
    1 bottle of your fave BBQ sauce

    Put the ribs in the crock pot. Dump the bottle of BBQ sauce on top. Cook for 8 hours on low in the crock pot. The meat will be falling off the bone. It is soooo easy and so good!
