The best methods of cooking are the easy ones no doubt, and in these busy times when time and energy savings are so difficult to come by, everybody would like to try some. We have the awesome four-some recipes for easy home cooking listed here for you to try for yourself or to share:
1. Chicken Soup and Dumplings :
Ingredients: 19 oz of Progresso Traditional chicken noodle soup, 14 oz chicken broth, 16.3 oz Pillsbury Grands refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, freshly chopped parsley if you like.
Method: warm the soup and broth; bring to a boil in a 4-quart Dutch oven and work to divide dough into 8 parts, cutting them into 4ths. Add these biscuit pieces into the boiling soup and cook in an open vessel for ten minutes, bringing to a medium boil, then cover and cook for another ten minutes so dumplings get fluffy and light. For serving, first take out dumplings, then using a soup ladle, spoon into bowls, adding dumplings before garnishing with parsley.

Mix and blend well the Bisquick mix, milk, salt, pepper and eggs then pour it into pie plate and place into the oven to bake for half an hour; insert knife into the center to check if done (if it comes out clean), before sprinkling in the remainder of the cheese and browning the top till it melts. Cool a few minutes before serving.
