Cook's Block!

Ok, what do I cook? I need an idea!

What would YOU serve for 10-13 ladies coming to your home? I thought it would be fun to try someone else's recipe! I need the name of a favorite casserole, soup or something! I don't want you to have to do the "send me your recipe" thing if you are too busy. But if you give me a name, I'll google it and go from there.

Thanks......from my kitchen to yours!

P.S. If we can get about 6 more Texas bloggers, we are going to make the goal of 30!! So check your lists and send some over to get on the list.


  1. Hi Diana,
    This is fun! For a group of ladies, this time of year, I'd do something a little heartier than usual. Off the top of my head:
    -Hot Chicken Salad Casserole (rice, chicken, almonds, crm of chicken soup)
    -Chicken Spaghetti (the one with cheddar on top, and I like adding black olives, pimientos, and almonds because it's pretty and my kids aren't there to say "ewww...."
    -Cajun Shrimp and Pasta - I've done this one for a graduation lunch and it worked great to make ahead.

    I'm glad to share recipes. Just let me know!


  2. Hope you find something to fix! I would send you a recipe, but I am one of those cooks who just dumps it in and doesn't measure anything.
    Blessings, andrea

  3. My FAVORITE thing to fix for larger(er) groups is Lime Chicken Tacos. Go to the Taste of Home website and you should be able to find, otherwise let me know! I get so many compliments on this:)

  4. Oooooh, good one! Let's see, Pizza Hut? Domino's? NO? Oh okay, there's a recipe floating out there that is SO good and it's a throw-it-together-and-bake-it kind of meal so it's perfect. It's got chicken topped with swiss cheese in a 9x13, then pour a BAG of stuffing cubes over it, butter, and cream of chicken soup. I'm sure you could find it online. I don't know how to do a link on comments but I bet you could find it. My kids even eat it and it's warm and good. I'll be thinking of others and you let me know if you think of anything good!! Make sure you post what you make so we can all get a new idea!! ♥

    A link to one of my Mom's recipes..really yummy

  6. Lasagna is good, quick, easy and feeds alot, throw in some garlic bread, salad, and dessert. Voila!! OR Taco Soup is wonderful too, easy and tasty tasty.

  7. If it's this month, I'd go for a good soup, some ham and cheese rolls, and a salad. Then for dessert, you could make a good cobbler. OR the apple dumpling recipe....made with Mt. Dew..OH MY!
    I have a couple of soups I'd recommend...One is corn and crab, or just Velvety Corn soup; I also have a good chicken Corn Chowder recipe. And the ham and cheese rolls, I make with frozen bread dough, butter, seasoning, ham and cheese rolled into a jelly roll type and then baked...need more info, just ask....


  8. White Chicken chili - rotisserie chicken from deli and canned white beans, chile peppers, seasoning and broth. A great crock-pot throw-together. C

  9. Last night I made Tuna Steaks with salt and lime seared in a pan with oil and they were yummmm. You could even shread them and put in corn tortillas. I server with Zero Point WW Soup - Veggie broth, onion, rotel, corn, zucchini, green beans.

  10. Hi Diana, Thanks for visiting :) I thought I'd throw my 2 cents (or 1 recipe) in as well...


    I would chop up a bunch of boneless skinlesss chicken breasts or thighs and then bake it up...very very easy and so delicious....


  11. Wow, everyone else has got some great ideas already. Have you ever made asian coleslaw with instant noodles? For sure google this... I like to use broccoli slaw instead of coleslaw and I'll add chicken for protein and peanuts. It's really good with some diced mango too! It can feed a large crowd and be a really yummy salad meal. Also I love to make spaghetti pie from allrecipes cause it reminds me of an easier poor man's version of lasagna another great one for a large crowd. Just saying Hello as I still get settled in here! Did you get any snow for Christmas? We had some in Grapevine when we visited Grandparents, I think it followed us from Canada! :) It's so good to be back!


  13. Huge salad I made the night only two or three of us ate it. no cooking if you buy chicken strips from wal mart deli or grill tenders the night before.
    lettuce, chicken, cheese, tomato, avocado, black beans, mexicorn, serve w tortilla chips and spicy ranch dressing.

  14. Hi, I'm not from Texas but I'll send your request to some other Texan bloggers I know! I'm doing a 1950's cocktail party for my Dad and I think that might be a cool theme for a party. The food was simple and you could have everyone dress up in vintage-y stuff!

  15. I too say Lasagna, bread, salad, and dessert. Yummm!!! Sunshines says Mac and cz!!! lol

  16. After reading the suggestions I'm already hungry and can't think of anything else right now.

    It's always fun to find blogs from your home area. Though I'm not a Texan I can still relate to the feeling of finding a blogger that lives in my home state!

  17. I'm late to the party. What did you decide on? I'm about to try some Pioneer Cookbook recipes today, if I have the ingredients on hand! -Tammy

  18. oops, i meant "pioneer woman cooks" but i'm sure you knew that! -tammy
