This recipe is SO good and easy! Throw everything in the crock pot in the morning, and it’s ready to go by dinner! Of course, that’s how most crock pot recipes are; and I’d just LOVE to meet the person who came up with that wonderful invention, vital to any kitchen.

2 lb. boneless chicken pieces
1 C. packed brown sugar
2/3 C. vinegar
1/4 C. lemon lime soda (I used Sprite)
2-3 Tbs. minced garlic
2 Tbs. soy sauce
1 tsp. black pepper


Place chicken (uncooked), in the bottom of the crock pot.

Combine all remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. Cook on low setting for 6 – 8 hours.


~ When you combine all the ingredients, it WILL look like a science experiment (Sprite and vinegar are fun HA!). That’s OK, though!

~ Don’t let the chicken cook too much longer over the 8 hours. I’ve made this recipe twice because the first time, beyond my control, we didn’t get home until it had been sitting there 10 hours. We had brown sugar rocks and a crusted crock pot that night!

~ This goes really well with yellow squash and green beans!!


1 package Spaghetti (16 oz)
1 pound Ground Beef

2 Eggs
1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
5 TBSP Butter, melted
2 cups Small Curd Cottage Cheese (16 oz)

Cook spaghetti according to package. In a skillet, cook beef and onion until beef is cooked through and drain. Stir in spaghetti sauce, cottage cheese and seasoned salt. Set aside. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Uncover, bake an additional 20-25 minutes until cheese is melted.



We aren’t much of onion people in my family. If you do not want to chop the onion, you can still cut it in half and sautee while browning the meat.

This is great for a larger family. My husband and I eat on these left overs for almost a week! It will feed a family of four to six just perfectly.
