Quick Ziti with Swiss Cheese and Ham
Perfect for picky eaters. My kids destroyed this dish!! I did make some modifications to give it some flavor, here is what I did: sauté garlic and finely chopped onions in olive oil, then add ham. Once the pasta is done drain and mix in 2-3 tablespoons of butter (this helps the cheese). Then add the Swiss, mozzarella and provolone (shredded). For the adults I sautéd asparagus and broccoli, with onion salt in the garlic/onion/olive oil mixture that's above (in another pan). I tossed the veggie mixture with the pasta for my husband and I. Everyone was happy and it really was a fast and easy dinner. Recommend you make twice as much, we had none left over for lunch.

Poor Man's Beer Batter Fish
Everyone in my family loved this batter. I followed another reviewers suggestion of 2/3 cup water, 2/3 cup milk, and 1/8 cup baking powder. Came out great.

Fried Green Tomatoes
This is the only Fried Green Tomato recipe you'll ever need. It's simply the best!!! I did not have saltine crackers so I improvised with ritz crackers and Italian Bread Crumbs. Don't run to the store, just use what is in your pantry. Recommend you add a splash of milk to your egg wash. Happy eating!!!
