Calling All Recipes

I commented on one of Catie's Facebook status's about how her Chicken Parmesan she was making for dinner sounded really YUMMY and thought that it would be a great idea to share some recipes. I seem to make the same things over and over again - mainly because we like them, the ingredients fit into our budget (no crazy expensive meals on a teachers salary) and they are pretty simple recipes. I'm asking for all of you that follow my blog to post your own blog with a favorite recipe of yours. I'm going to try and post one recipe a week - we'll see how far I can get with the meals that we make.

So my first post is going to be easy - it's a Rachael Ray recipe called "Yakitori Noodle Bowls" and it was really good. A few changes/additions to the recipe - instead of Sherry, I used Chicken Broth - and we added carrots and red bell peppers in when the chicken was almost finished cooking through - thought that it needed a few more veggies than just scallions. We also omitted the sesame seeds at the end, mainly because we didn't have any on hand.

Here's a link to the recipe on her site - YAKITORI NOODLE BOWLS

Let me know if you make it and what you think!

Cute Idea. I wish I had more receipes but I will try :) Hey, is your background something you did or is it what Katie did? It's sooo cute!

Jaime, I put up a post on my blog including a linky for everyone to use. Since it was your idea, we can put the link on your page. I was just trying to see if I could figure it out:)
