Featured Recipes

The following recipe was submitted by Jennifer. This is one of her family favorites. These look so good. I bet they would be wonderful with fresh beans as well! Thank you so much for sharing, Jennifer!!

Green Bean Bundles

2 cans Whole Green Beans, dranined
1 pd. Lean Bacon, sliced in half
1/4 C. Butter
1/2 C. Brown Sugar

Wrap a slice of bacon around 5 green beans and stick a tooth pick to hold down.  After
 all green bean bundles are made layer in a pan and sprinkle with salt, pepper and 
garlic.  Melt butter and mix in brown sugar.  Pour of green beans and let marinate over
night.  Bake in 350 oven for 20-30 minutes until bacon is cooked and crisp.  You may 
have to drain the grease and turn the bundles often.  

NOTE:  My husband cooks the bundles in the oven for a while then on the grill to help 
the grease drain off the bundles.

The following two recipes were submitted by Barb. These recipes are her Family Favorites. Please note her comments with each recipe - they both look so delicious that I'm planning on trying them with our children. Thank you, Barb, for sharing thess recipes. They look like so much fun to make!!!

Easy Kid's Pork Chops

Barb's Comment: "This is one of my kid's favorite meals since the rice krispies make 
the pork chops a bit sweet. It's really quick and fun to do with the kids too!"

ingredients: 4 - 6 center cut pork chops
3 cups Rice Krispies
1 tablespoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 tablespoon milk

Throw rice krispies, pepper, garlic powder and salt into a zip lock plastic bag.  Have
the kids crush and mix this up with a rolling pin, while it's in the bag, to form a
fine powder.  It's OK if some of the rice krispies remain whole.

In a small pie dish, scrabble the egg and milk.  Dip the pork chops into the egg
mixture then throw the pork chops into the bag and have the kids SHAKE until pork
chops are well coated with the rice krispies mixture. 

Put the pork chops into a 9" x 11" pyrex baking dish and put a small pat of butter on
top of each pork chop. 

Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours depending upon how thick the pork
chops are.

Serve with baked potatoes and sauteed green beans.  
Enjoy - Barb
