Mom's Zucchini Bread
This bread is awesome!!!!! I followed the recipe and it turned out great. I made a loaf and 12 large muffins from this batch and both are moist and tasty. I took some bread to work and soon my phone rung with thanks. Great recipe!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice
I admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. I grated my first orange peel, which increase my skeptism but I trudged through the recipe. The end result is tasty chicken! I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs instead of the breasts and it was a good choice. The flavor seeped into the tender meat which made every bite full of flavor. The sauce was a little thin, but I just added 2 tbsp of potatoe flakes and that worked just fine. I will DEFINATELY use this recipe again. Thanks Scarlett for sharing!!!!!!

Chili con Carne II
Great recipe! I added a sprinkle of cloves even though I hate them and part of me wished I had left them out, but I'll be a trooper. I like a good tomato sauce as my base, so I added a can of tomato sauce. After browning meat and adding ingredients, I placed the pasta sauce into a crockpot and added the rest of the ingredients and let it all cook together for 90 minutes. I used just one cinnamon stick instead of two (sheesh, they are expensive) The cloves overpowered the aroma but it didn't kill the flavor, thank goodness. Other than the cloves, it was great. (They were quite expensive too and I don't even like those nasty things.) Would be 5 stars without the cloves. Also, I added a small can of pinto beans with the kidney beans for a little variety.
