I Remember Laura~Family Recipes
Happy Monday! Today I am participating in Miss Sandy's Laura Ingalls Wilder Blog-a-thon. If you would like to join in the fun or visit the other participants, please visit her at Quill Cottage.
This week's theme is special family recipes and I have two favorites to share.
The first one is called Honey-Eyed Chicken and my mom used to make it for us quite often. It was also one of the first dinners I made for Phillip after we got married.
You don't need a lot of ingredients and it is perfect for a quick dinner.
4 chicken breasts
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup mustard
4 teaspoons curry powder
Preheat oven to 350F. Place chicken in baking dish. Place butter, honey, mustard and curry powder in small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until butter is melted. Pour sauce over chicken. Bake 45-60 minutes, basting 3-4 times. Serve over rice.
In 1995, my Nana and Papa came to visit us in Sioux Falls, SD. Afterwards, I rode with them back to their home in Canada for a two week visit. On my return flight, I ran into immigration trouble at the airport. Phillip had to mail them a particular document, so I ended up staying an extra week. The whole family went over to my Great Aunt Barb's house for dinner and she made Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares for dessert.
Aunt Barb’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares
1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 bag mini marshmallows
Melt butter, peanut butter and chocolate chips in saucepan over low heat or in microwave. Blend well. Stir in marshmallows. Pour into buttered 8 x 8 pan and chill for 1/2 hour. Cut into small squares.
I hope you have enjoyed taking a peek at two of my special recipes! My family is still in town and we are having a great time together. I miss visiting you all, but will catch up on your latest news soon!
