Dessert Post: CANDY!!!!!!!!!!

Mom and I got in the cooking mood yesterday and whipped out a bunch of yummy goodies, including: peanut butter cups, almond roca, bon bons, chocolate covered cherries, gumdrops and hazelnut truffles. It all turned out pretty good. If you want the recipes to any, just let me know and I will post some. I don't have time to post them all right now but will definitely make an effort if you have a request.

I'm going to try it with italian sausage and pepperoni... we will see how it turns out. I would give you the recipe right now, but I'm not even sure of it. I'm going to ask my mom to help me with the sauce and then I will try to post the recipe for you!

And I'm Back in the Game!

So sorry I've been slacking with posts! We had a houseful of family last week and then a houseful of sick kids! I had meant to post up a Thankgiving themed blog but never got around to it, so... here it is, just a little late!

What is your favorite Thanksgiving Dish? Please post your recipes in the comment section. I have a lot of favorites, but I think the best are the dinner rolls my mom makes, Yum! Sadly, I don't have the recipe on hand but once I get it I will post it in here, I just wanted to get the ball rolling again with this blog.

Thanks for your recipes!

Anyone have some ideas for me? :)

Cornbread Bake

Here is a super yummy, super easy tex-mex style comfort food recipe that I love!

*Cornbread Bake*

1 lb. ground beef
1 box cornbread mix (Jiffy works great)
1 tsp. dried oregano
3/4 cup picante sauce (Pace is what I usually use)
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 16oz can corn
1/2 cup shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 375. Cook hamburger and oregano together until hamburger is browned thoroughly. Drain. Add rest of the ingredients to the hamburger. Mix thoroughly. Spread mixture on the bottom of a pyrex cooking pan. Prepare muffin mix as directed on box and spread over the top of hamburger mixture. Bake 25-30 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes before serving. I usually sprinkle some cheese on top for some more cheesy goodness, or if you like things on the spicier side, I sometimes mix a chopped jalapeno pepper into the cornbread mix. Enjoy!

Chicken Enchiladas with a white sauce

OK this recipe does take a little bit of time but it is SUPER yummy! Bake 6 chicken breasts at 375* for 45-60 min. or until cooked through. After they are cooked cube the chicken and mix with 1 tablespoon of milk, 4oz of cream cheese(softened), and 1 tablespoon of cumin. Roll mixture into flour tortillas(should make 10) and place in a 9x13 glass baking dish. In a bowl combine 1 cup milk, 1 cup sour cream, and 1 can of cream of chicken soup. Pour mixture over Enchiladas, cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 mins. at 350*. Take out of oven, remove foil, smother with cheddar cheese and put back in oven uncovered for 10-15 mins. to melt cheese.

I usually serve this with a salad or some mexican rice, enjoy!!

2 for the Price of 1

Tonight for dinner we are having Nachos, very simple and not even a recipe, really. Here is how I make them.

1 package of hamburger
Tortilla Chips
Tostitos Jar Cheese

I cook up the hamburger and load my chips up with hamburger, cheese and veggies. I may even try black beans tonight, I havn't decided. Anyways, really simple dinner and it sounds yummy!

Here is the recipe I've been meaning to post from last week. Last Thursday I made Chicken Roll-Ups...

Flavorful Chicken Roll-Ups ( I didn't make this much, but you can do with it what you will)

6 Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 Package sliced part-skim mozzarella cheese (I use shredded because that is what I had)
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 c. seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 c butter, melted
1/2 ts. dried oregano

1. Flatten chicken to 1/3 inch thickness. Place on cheese slice on each piece of chicken and roll up tightly, secure with a toothpick.

2. Place the flour, eggs and bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls. Coat chicken with flour. Dip in egss, then coast with bread crumbs.

3. Place seam side down in an ungreased 2-1/2 qt. bakeing dish. Combine butter and oregano, drizzle over the chicken. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Discard toothpicks.

* It had been my first time trying this but it turned out to be really yummy. I served it with some parm. noodles and corn.

**Coming in the next few days: Thanksgiving post! Start thinking of your favorite Thanksgiving recipes/dishes and we will share them soon!!
