I have made this recipe many times but I cover the chicken with BBQ sauce instead of mayo, sprinkle with Progresso seasoned bread crumbs, and use shredded taco cheese on top.

Heater Not Working in 1996 Ford Ranger?
Sorry I cant help, all I can do is sympathize. I have a 2004 Ford Explorer and the heater quit working. 3 repair shops all said it will cost $1,000 to fix it because it is so inaccessible. Something about a blend door. I am so mad at Ford I will never buy another...

I heard that you just paint plain yogurt on rocks with a paintbrush. I tried this one time and discovered that my big sweet dog had followed behind me happily licking it all off so I dont know if it works! Im curious to see other feedback.

Getting Seeds from a Pine Cone?
It depends on the species of pine tree. Some have very small seeds, and if you are looking for the edible variety of pine nuts, I was told they only produce them every 7 years and from my experience in living among the trees, that is true. Better luck next...

Kahlua (Afghan Hound)
What a beautiful dog. You are both very blessed to have found each other. How cute about the squeeky toys, my pointer is the same way. A couple of the toys never even made it home from the store! Plush squeeky toys are best, not plastic.

Turning Water into Wine
I cant believe some of these comments. What sounds poisonous about boiled water with yeast in it? Thats how wine is made. My husband has been making wine for years, from 5 - 20 gallons at a time in plastic containers. When you go to a wine making supply shop...

Holiday Dog Collar
Cute idea! Id like to share what I did for my dog one Christmas. I cut thin strips of fleece material about a foot long, then tied the strips in a knot around her collar so it looks fluffy. Strips can be cut shorter after tying.
