Chicken spaghetti

Editor’s note: Marci Kay Nobles got more than a bit burned out on writing recipes after submitting one Christmas dessert a day during the month of December. Luckily, she’s back and ready to post. The first recipe she’s prepared during her “comeback tour” is one for chicken spaghetti. It’s been a big hit whenever she’s cooked it for special occasions at Parkview United Methodist Church in Benton and seems to be one of those recipes that’s more than a bit trendy these days. So, hop on the bandwagon because now …

Think about it — how many cherry chocolate cookies have you eaten or even seen? They’re not very common and a recipe to make them, as I said, might seem a bit odd at first.
But think about it. Chocolate and cherry is a great combination that’s blended often. You’ve got chocolate covered cherries, cherry flavoring is a common ingredient in filled chocolate candies and, well, there are a lot of examples. That being the case, why not make a batch of …

By the way, here’s a bit of trivia. In the 12 Days of Christmas, the “true love” referenced in the song winds up with 22 of the birds assuming she receives a pair of them every time …

Yes, I had to get the recipe and I’m sharing it with you now. Let me tell you — it has been added to my list of “must make” Christmas dessert recipes. This cookie is absolutely …
