chicken kiev with rice

Chicken Kiev is one of my first thoughts when making a meal for someone for the first time. It is not that difficult to make, it looks impressive. and it tastes divine.  It is best served with mashed potatoes and green beans almondine. This is not the traditional method to make this dish. There will be no pounding or stuffing. Just simple coating. Chicken Kiev is a popular dish of boneless chicken breast pounded and rolled around cold garlic butter with herbs, then breaded and either fried or baked.

Chocolate Pancakes :)

 This is one of those recipes that is not very exact. I do hope it gives you enough of a direction so that you can follow your own ideas to their conclusions. The idea for this recipe start with a bunch of posts I saw last year for Valentines day Red Velvet Pancakes. I t hung out for quite sometime and didn't make a lot of noise. One day I was going to make pancakes for my kids and didn't have all the ingredients I needed. I did, however, have a bag of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brownie Mix. Why not make chocolate pancakes?

 I asked my husband what soup should I post. The first words out of his mouth were "Cauliflower and Broccoli Cheese Soup." I knew I had a winner. Then I took a minute and realised that I do not have an actually written down recipe for that. I usually start with a pot of water and go from there. So I will do my best to walk you through the process. Prep Up:

I simply love this dish. We grew up eating it. I have made a few adjustments here or there, but it still reminds me of our house in Michigan. I need to find a scanner or go to a photo place and scan up all these photos I have. They would be fun to share.

This recipe has been in the works for quite sometime now. I was close a few times. The problems I would run into were they would tend to not taste good once they cooled or they would have little to no flavor to begin with.

Cookies!

These are chewy gooey goodness.

I do not like box mixes. So, I am not sure how to compare this to those. All I really know is that we like it.

BamBam Crunch!

So, I won these boxes of gluten free cereal. It was an on line contest hosted by Jenny of Creative Cooking Gluten Free. She Made Yabba Dabba Doo Cookies. I thought; "what a great idea. Using cereal as an ingredient and not just a meal or snack." So I thought about it for a while and I came up with Bam Bam Crunch Cookies. To be honest I was not sure if this would work. I hate wasting food. Also my oven has been on the fritz this past week.

The_Breakfast_Club I love the movie The Breakfast Club.  The concept the characters and the music. Have I told you my age yet? I own a copy of this on VHS. One day I will own it on DVD, of that I am sure. Now don't you think starting the day off with a Club Sandwich sounds like a great idea. I do . You should give it a try.

DSCN0070 I am not a sweet potato person. I do not like them baked, fried or candied. They are loved by most of my mothers side of the family but I never cared for them. One year I was watching the T.V. show The Chew. It was a fun little show. It may still even be on. I have no idea.
