Recipe for family meals :

Parmesan Chicken with Artichokes

This recipe comes from Diane Abel who lives in Texas. It is one of the recipes she posted to the Yahoo group called Let's Cook <click here>

This is how Diane introduced herself to the Group:

I joined your group over the weekend and thought I might introduce myself. I hope to share some recipes and make some friends with this group

I'm Diane, from Texas. I have been cooking for my family for over thirty-three years. I am still married to my high school sweetheart. I am mom to two and grandma to four little ones ages three to eleven.

I haven't worked in six years but you'd never know it with my crazy schedule. I am the president of our local MADD chapter. I unfortunately stay very busy with them.

I am always on the look out for something new to put on the dinner table . . . my husband has gotten used to being my taste tester. I hope to find the time to send y'all some of our favorite recipes.

"I was served something similar to this at a meeting I attended a while back. It was so good, I tried to copy it at home. We both loved it. This is great for one of those company's coming dinners. It looks like you worked on it all day but it is very easy to make".
