This week in My Favorite Recipes....I am sharing recipes from some friends. One is from a friend who I have known for years. She is the epitome of home cooking. Her recipes are highly sought after....and to actually have her make those recipes for you....is to die for. I dearly love my Marni and I love....love...love her recipes. I am sure you are too are going to make Marni's Chicken Enchilada's a family favorite.
The second recipe if from a friend who is very dear to me and whom I had the pleasure of seeing again at Old Settlers this year. She and her husband played a big part in my life when my husband Tim was alive and I don't honestly think anyone has ever made me laugh harder than she does. Along with her skills at making me laugh.....she also is a wonderful cook as her recipe for Robin's Crockpot Cheese Corn will be a testament to.
The final guest recipe (yes I am treating you to three this week) is from a woman whom I have only recently gotten to know through facebook, but who has lived in my small town for many years. She is a busy IV nurse and she spends much of her time traveling but obviously she isn't too shabby in the kitchen as her recipe for Donna's Chili Stew sounds like a winner to me. I had every intention of trying it this weekend, but of course.....we all know how that worked out for me. Donna also has a blog which I would love to read of. If you would like to become a Donna fan....you too can visit her blog and show her some love.
