"Hissy Fit" Give-Away

This is your chance to have your very own
"Hissy Fit"!
I LUV audiobooks!
And I'm gonna give you a chance to win one of mine.
They're a great "carpool" read/listen.
OR you might choose to listen & Blog at the very same time!!
(Mmmmm! Don't we love that?!)
I have accumulated quite a collection of good titles, so I'm going to de-clutter and pass along the read to some Blogger who yearns for her own "HISSY FIT".

The Give-away is for a used (by me) audio book of "Hissy Fit", written by Mary Kay Andrews. This is a funny, chick-lit tale, that takes place in the "South"; "where else, ya'll?!" The audiobook contains 5 CD's which play for 6 hrs.

The winner will be determined by a Drawing which will take place, immediately after Princess gets home from school on Friday, Feb. 27. The way to get your name into this drawing is to submit a "Slacker Recipe" in the "COMMENTS" portion of this particular Blog Post.

What is a "Slacker Recipe"?
1. There must not be more than 6 ingredients.
2. It must not take longer than 29 min. to prepare. . .
It can cook, boil, steam, saute, bake, etc. for longer, but a real SLACKER COOK won't spend more than 29 minutes with her hands in the pot (so
to speak). Think "Quick, Easy & Tasty"!

You may submit as many recipes as you'd like, but your name will only be submitted one time in this drawing. If your recipe is featured in my weekly Tuesday "SLACKER COOK RECIPE DAY" blog post, you will be given full credit for the recipe.

So, bring on the "Slacker Recipes" and
you just might win your own "Hissy Fit"!

Seriously girl, you know I HAVE to be all over this one. Will you pass it on to me if I promise to have a Hissy Fit?

I'm going to have to see about a slacker recipe for you. I'm not a slacker in the kitchen though. I love things that take a long time. Do you hate me now? Come on, don't be chasing me with that knife, it's dangerous for the both of us.

I'll see what I can dig up for you though, just cause you asked so nice.

I'm entering! Here is my easy recipe for Chicken parmesan

Boneless chicken breast
1-2 Eggs
¼c Parmesan
½c Italian style Bread crumbs
Prego(whatever sauce you want to use)

Mix the egg in a bowl. Mix the parmesan and bread crumbs in another bowl.
Run the chicken through the egg and then put in the bread crumb bowl and cover it . Let all the excess come off and then fry it in a pan-5 minutes each side.

Pat the chicken with a paper towel to get as much grease as you can off.

Put it in a pan cover with sauce and put it in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Cover with mozzarella cheese

I like to serve with spaghetti & lima beans :)


I love the book Hissy Fit. I checked it out from the library at school....loved it so much I bought it. I should have saved my Poor Man's Pie recipe for this week....hum;.....will have to hit my recipe file between now and Monday. Thanks for the sweet post about Drew. I will be mailing your CD on Monday.


BTW...Frank belongs to me(hubby). I forgot I was working on his blog for him when I responded to your comment. Stillmagnolia incognito....LOL

Thanks for the comment.

A slackers recipe.. that's a hard one.

fresh salmon (if you like fish to start)fried in
Soya Sauce, Black Pepper and Chives

no idea how much of each :)

and I served with rice (I only make sticky rice) and corn

I love listening to audio books at work makes the day go by so much quicker!!


Poor Man's Pie - Slacker Recipe

1 c flour
1 c milk
1 can of fruit(your choice - they are all good)
1 c sugar
1 stick butter (or margarine)

Place the stick of butter in an 8x8 pyrex dish in the oven on 350. While the butter is melting, mix the flour, sugar and milk together. Pour into the dish with the melted butter. Open a can of your favorite fruit (my family loves pineapple (tidbits or crushed), applesauce, fruit cocktail, or peaches). After you have poured the flour mixture in....pour the can of fruit on top. While it cooks, the fruit sinks and the flour rises....so you have a cobbler like pie. Cook til the top is brown.

*Serve it hot...you can top it with ice cream or cool whip if you chose...or just eat it plain. It is soooo good I even eat it for breakfast the next morning.

Pizza Crust
franks red hot
garlic powder
chicken cubes

combine equal parts franks red-hot and butter (1/2 c each is more than plenty and lets you have some sauce for something else later)add garlic powder to taste. spread a generous amount on your pizza crust. Top with chicken chunks (we like ours made from grilled chix, but boiled, or pre-cooked store bought will be just fine) cover generously in mozzarella, sprinkle with garlic again if you like, place 425 oven until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Let stand a couple minutes before serving so the cheese can set up and you can slice it.

Goob said...

I forgot to say that butter should be MELTED!~

Okay...buy a club house seasoning packet of crock pot Italian chicken, boneless chicken breast, one can of diced tomatoes, one can of tomato paste. Put chicken in your crock pot, mix up the other ingredients , pour over top. Walk away for 6 hours, come back sprinkle with shredded cheese. Serve chicken over pasta!! Supper is served, and it is so good.

Me (aka Danielle) said...

I've got this one in the bag! You ready....

Slow Cooked Steaks (Slow Cooker)

2-4 14 oz can of stewed tomatoes (oregano and basil seasoned)
4-6 Steaks (thin cut works best)
4-6 potatoes (quartered)
1 .7 oz canned mushrooms

Place all ingredients in slow cooker(including uncooked meat) Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low 8-10 hours.

*Steaks can be substituted with boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

P.S. I think this is a VERY ingenious idea! A prize for sharing our recipes...Pure Genius!
