Cooking for a Crowd Recipes
This is without a doubt one of the Best. Chicken. Recipes. Ever. We fixed this for our luau last year. I figured out of the 140 guests there had to be some folks who didn’t like roast pig. So we made 70 pieces of Huli Huli Chicken to supplement the roast pig. Turns out no one doesn’t like roast pig. But NO ONE wanted to skip the chicken either.
A quick fried rice much better than you’d get at your favorite Chinese restaurant. It makes an easy and delicious side dish.
In less then 15 minutes you can have this yummy Heath Bar Freezer Pie done and in the freezer. Make it before you need it. Need a quick dessert? Ta da! You have a Frozen Heather Bar Cream Pie in the freezer. Your family will love it!
Mexican Street Corn Casserole is loaded with flavor. A real family pleaser. You can serve it as a side dish, or a dip. You can even use it in tacos. Enjoy!
This White Coconut Texas Sheet Cake is even better the next day. It’s every bit as good as the chocolate version!
