Dump Cake

My cousin, Lola, gave me this wonderfully fattening recipe.

l large can crushed pineapple
l box yellow cake mix
2 sticks butter, sliced
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 can cherry pie filling

Pour pineapple into a 9x13 pan. Spoon pie filling over pineapple. Crumble cake mix evenly over this. Place sliced butter over the mixture and top with pecans. Bake in preheated oven at 350o for 1 hour or until golden brown.

Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie

My friend, Jessica, gave me this recipe.

1 unbaked 9 inch deep dish pie shell (if using frozen let thaw completely- do not prebake)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 cup of chocolate morsels (I use the milk chocolate just because I like it better and use a little more than what the recipe calls for)

PREHEAT oven to 325 degrees
BEAT eggs in large bowl on high speed until foamy. Beat in flour, sugar, brown sugar. Stir in morsels. Spoon in pie shell.
BAKE for 55 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between outside edge and center comes out clean. Middle of pie will still be a little "jiggly." Cool on wire rack. Serve warm or cold.

Chicken Spaghetti Toss

5 green onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
½ teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1 package 7 ounces thin spaghetti

In a large skillet, sauté onions and garlic in butter and oil until tender. Stir in the chicken, lemon juice, parsley, seasoned salt and lemon pepper. Saute for 15-20 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Meanwhile, cook spaghetti according to directions and drain. Add the chicken mixture to the spaghetti and toss. Serves 4.

Apple Dumplings

This recipe was given to me by my mom. She got it from someone at her church. It is yummy and different! Oh, and don't fix these just for your small family...you have to share because it makes alot!

2 cans crescent rolls
2 granny smith apples (peeled, cored, cut into eighths)
1 stick butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
½ Tsp. vanilla
12 OZ Mountain Dew, Sprite, 7 up, etc.

Melt butter. Stir in sugar, vanilla and Sprite.

Roll each apple into crescent roll and place in 9x13 inch baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam. They will have to be close together to get them all in the dish. Pour melted mixture over the dumplings then sprinkle with cinnamon. It will appear to be too much liquid but it is not.

Bake @ 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
