This satisfying chicken and rice dish is great, as it's put all together in a cooking bag and baked, so it's a breeze when it comes to clean up, as is all contained in the bag.

Chicken Rice and Spice Dinner

1 tbsp. flour
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1 can (14 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (4 oz.) whole mushrooms, drained

1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp. dry basil leaves
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1 frying chicken, cut up
1 tbsp. cooking oil
6 oz. smoked sausage links

Preheat oven to 350. Shake flour in large size oven cooking bag; place in a 9x13" pan. Add rice, tomatoes, mushrooms, celery, onion, water, basil, salt and pepper and garlic powder. Squeeze bag gently to blend ingredients. Brush chicken pieces with oil. Sprinkle lightly with paprika and additional salt & pepper to taste. Cut sausage links into thirds.

This is a simple but wonderful main dish that we never tire of.
It's amazing so few ingredients could taste so great when it's cooked together.

Cedric's Casserole Recipe

6 cups coarsely shredded cabbage
1 medium onion, chopped
1-1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
Salt & pepper, to taste
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 can tomato soup

Brown hamburger and onion together (don't need to brown the meat too much, as it will finish cooking in the oven). Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put half of the shredded cabbage in a 9x13" pan; top with hamburger-onion mixture. Cover with remaining shredded cabbage. Mix Worcestershire and soup together and spoon it evenly over the NOT mix. Cover with foil and bake 1-1/2 hours at 350.

This is a very tasty cake, that can be served frosted or plain. We prefer it unfrosted and serve it topped with whipped cream.

Milky Way Cake Recipe

6 regular size Milky Way candy bars (or 13 fun size bars)
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1-1/4 cups buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts

Melt chocolate bars and 1/2 cup butter together over low heat. Cool. Cream remaining butter and sugar together until fluffy; add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Mix flour and soda and add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, stirring until smooth. Add melted candy, mixing in well. Stir in vanilla and nuts. Bake in a well greased and floured 10" tube, or bundt pan at 350 for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until done, when tested with a toothpick. Cool for about 15 minutes and remove from pan. Leave plain or frost with favorite frosting.

These are popular with our family. If I don't want to use the broiler, I cook the chicken in the skillet and let the heat from the chicken melt the cheese once it is on the roll. I have also popped the sandwiches in the oven for a few minutes, if I already had it on making a side dish.
