Delicious Chicken Casserole
Super yummy!This recipe is a new family favorite!Brought this without testing it first to a friend who just had a baby & it got rave reviews from them.The next night I made it for my own family and we all loved it, including my ridiculously picky 12 yr. old. I did not add the celery when simmering the chicken as I didn't have any on hand. It didn't make a difference! I also skipped the celery salt since I didn't have that, either. It doesn't need it anyways...there's enough salt in everything else. I also added about 1 1/2 - 2 c. of shredded cheddar cheese to the soup & sour cream mixture and two things FOR SURE, you'll need to increase the rice (I used about 3 1/2 cups of cooked jasmine)and DON"T SKIP the buttery cracker topping, it's heavenly. Don't substitute with saltines, either...they would be too bland. For my friends I added some frozen peas that I partially cooked before adding to the dish. Would be great also w/broccoli or peas & carrots or even corn, each of which I'll try in the future. Such an awesome base recipe! Thanks for sharing it! :-) Enjoy this one, folks!

Mini Apple Pies
Fun & Yummy! Thanks for sharing! BTW, those that are concerned about calorie counts should NOT be looking at a pie recipe...there's lard/shortening in crust! Why must people out there make snarky comments about recipes on this website that are not claiming to be "light" or "low fat"? If you're counting calories & fat grams you should know not to bother looking at certain recipes that are obviously not in that category. Modify it to fit your dietary needs or skip it altogether. Thank you.

Peanut Butter Balls III
This is just like the recipe that my friend & co-worker Kelly made long ago, except using only 2 cups of powdered sugar....4 is too much. The rice crispies add great texture and crunch. Some use crunchy PB, as well, but I strongly prefer using creamy for these. I make these every Christmas to give as gifts. I found it too tedious dipping each ball one at a time, so I now line mini muffin tins with the mini liners, put 1 TB of melted chocolate in the bottom of each liner, drop in the ball and cover with more melted chocolate. You can decorate with Christmas sprinkles or finely chopped peanuts on top before they harden. They look beautiful & festive, taste delicious, and are very popular with everyone who receives them. They look so cute in the mini muffin liners! :-)
