I love bread and whenever I can find something amazing to top it off, man, I’m in trouble. This Raspberry Butter makes everything taste better.
1 stick (1/4 lb) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 c raspberry preserves
2 Tbsp powdered sugar
- Place in mixer and beat until combined.
- Return butter to refrigerator and wait until set.
Summer time is the perfect time to pull our those crock pots so you can have a nice warm meal without heating up the entire house. This Fauxtisseries Chicken is great to serve as a main course with some veggies on the side or to save later and put on salads, sandwiches or in casseroles.
1 broiler/fryer chicken (3.5-4 lbs)
2 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tsp onion powder
2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
- Spray crock pot with cooking spray and place 3 medium sized balls of tin foil in the bottom (this keeps the chicken from sitting in all of the juices and keeps the skin crispier)
- Place chicken in to crock pot on top of tin foil with breast facing up
- Coat chicken with seasoning
- Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3.5 to 4.5
Note: This also works with bone-in chicken breasts
Breakfast time can be a rushed event in our house and sometimes I run out the door without realizing I skipped it completely. But this Peanut Butter & Banana Wrap is a great on the go breakfast. Feel free to add or subtract any ingredients, it will still taste amazing.
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
4 whole wheat or regular flour tortillas (8 to 10 inches in diameter)
1/4 cup honey
2 small bananas, sliced
1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips, if desired
- Spread 2 tablespoons of the peanut butter evenly over each tortilla. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the honey over each tortilla. Top with banana slices and chocolate chips.
- Roll up tortillas.
My family loves roasted vegetables but I never no how long to cook them for. Here is a great cheat sheet to just print out and know what to do with a ton of veggies. Click this link for the original veggie cheat sheet.
Do you ever buy a new head of lettuce and it goes bad within a couple of days? It used to happen to me all the time until I came upon this nifty little trick. Put paper towels into your storage bags with your lettuce. I like to cut up a whole head of lettuce and store it in the fridge in a zip lock bag so it’s ready to go when I need it. If you fold up a paper towel and place it in the bag as well, your lettuce stays crisp and fresh for up to a week (and sometimes longer)! I have found this works with most veggies that need to be stored in the fridge.
