When I was a kid, my mom used to make this wonderful “Cuban Bread” in the cold winter because it was “cheap” and faster than most yeast breads. The original recipe came from the Tightwad Gazette book but I have adapted it to be made in a stand mixer. There is very little hands on time and this makes it so simple for a busy family household.
I hope you enjoy this as much as we have over the many, many years of making it!

I had never had Chicken A La King until a lady from our church brought it to us after we had just had one of our children. I absolutely fell in LOVE with the yummy mushrooms and just the homeyness of the dish. The recipe was kindly shared with me and I want to share it with all of you. This freezes wonderfully and I double the recipe for our large family (but we always have plenty of leftovers).

I grew up with pea soup. My mom always turned the ham bone left over from Easter, into a delicious pot of pea soup. When I got married, I wasn’t home as much to create that wonderful simmering pot of pea soup like my mom did. That’s when I turned to my crock pot. I LOVE my crock pot because it does ALL the work for me. But it also creates that wonderful pot of soup, just like my mom’s. Here the is my ole’ stand-by recipe that I have made so many times. It’s easy, tastes wonderful and it makes a BIG pot of it. Make sure you use a LARGE crock pot for this recipe. When it starts to boil, if it’s too full, the pot will boil over and make a MESS of your crock pot. Trust me, I’ve had that happen one too many times!!!
