Why my "chaotic kitchen?" Have you ever tried to cook a meal with two small boys running around? Those Iron Chefs have nothing on me! Most of these recipes are pretty easy to prepare (I'm sorry but I'm not Julia Child) and hopefully are easy to follow. Enjoy your stay and I hope you find some recipes that your family will enjoy!

1. Melt butter. Stir in about a Tbsp of Onion, Onion. Let sit for a couple minutes. 

2. Stir in a can of green beans (we like French cut), can of Cream of Celery, brown rice, chicken, and cheese. 

3. Add salt and pepper to taste.
