Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue
I'm giving this recipe 5 stars for it's basic idea and simplicity. But I changed it up, made it even simpler, and even more yummy (if I dare say so!) Forget the other ingredients, all you need is the frozen chicken, a large bottle (or 2 med. bottles) of your favorite bbq sauce, some brown sugar, and a dash of your favorite all-purpose seasoning. I used 4 large frozen skinless breasts, added somewhere between 14-16+ oz of Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ Sauce (the best!), 1/4 cup of light brown sugar, and 1 TSP of Spice World's Cajun Blackening Seasoning, but any all-purpose seasoning would do. No pre-cooking stirring necessary, just dump it all in on top of the chicken. Cook on low 3-5 hrs, then while chicken's still in crockpot, gently shred/pull apart using 2 forks. Let simmer on low for another hour (or several, depending on your timeframe) and remove crock from heat and stir. Sauce will thicken as it cools/stops boiling. BEST pulled bbq sandwiches our family's ever eaten! This is my husband's new favorite meal. Tip 1: If near eating time your sauce seems super watery, remove lid for half an hour. Tip 2: The quality of your bbq sauce directly translates to the quality / flavor of your chicken, so choose it wisely! Tip 3: Freezes great in Ziploc bags!

Early Morning Oven Roasted New Potatoes
These are a great and easy staple that I've used for years. I prefer to make them with olive oil instead of butter (just eyeball enough to coat all the potatoes) and the only other change I do is sprinkle some paprika into the mix - that makes them PERFECT! (I probably add about 1 tsp to a large batch of this.) The olive oil adds a slight meditterranean flavor, but we love it. Also, I like to stir in some diced onions before baking - mmmmm!!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich
LOL - I'm laughing because I can't believe this is even on here, but I'm glad that it is! When I started cooking I didn't even know how to boil eggs properly, so I'm glad to see something as simple and common as the grilled cheese is listed here. And yes, this is THE way to make a grilled cheese sandwich. If you don't have butter, mayo or margarine is fine. Also, I prefer 2 slices of cheese, and sometimes add some sauteed mushrooms. Also, try White American cheese for a change. Yummy! :)
