  1. Do you think you could make my dreams come true and come live with me for a while?? That would be my one luxury in life…a personal chef! Your recipes are always so great! Thanks for constantly updating this for those of us who never know what to cook for dinner :)

  2. This is delicious and definitely deserved a re-post. I was not sure about the gravy mix or velveeta as they are not products I usually use. It all works. This was one of the first recipes I made from your site. I keep coming back for more. Thanks.

  3. This is what is for dinner tonight. Cannot wait to try it! I am loving your web site and plan to try several more of your recipes in the coming weeks.
