Cheese Bites

On Tuesday, my mom and I decided to have an election "party" and we made a few appetizers.  This appetizer my mom had from Pampered Chef.  These were so delicious.  They are such a different appetizer then your typical appetizers, and were easy to make.  These are also great, because you can make them ahead.  They also pair GREAT with wine, which is always a plus.

Asian Glazed Spare Ribs

My mom recently became a Pampered Chef demonstrator, and I am loving all of the products we get to test out.  The most recent product is a RockCrok, I am going to put the link below.  It seriously the coolest product we have made Mac and Cheese in it, and cooked a whole chicken IN THE MICROWAVE.  This recipe was awesome because everything was done in the pot, so there was no extra clean up.  You do not have to have the RockCrok to make this, you can use regular mixing bowls and a baking dish that will work the same.

Prep time- 20 minutes

  • 2/3 cups packed brown sugar

Crispy Barbecue Chicken

It has been well over a year since I posted, and I really want to get back into my blog. I am going to be posting new recipes, at lease once a week.  I also want to redo some of my original recipes.  A lot has changed in the past year, and I want to incorporate that in my blog.  The first recipe to start this off is a great recipe my boyfriend found.  This is super easy, cheap and of course delicious.  I must admit I was hesitant because I tried a Doritos chicken similar to this, and the chips became soggy.  These got the perfect amount of crispiness, and not soggy in the least

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serving Size: 4-6 people
Recipe Adapted from: Tasty

Ingredients 

  • 2 pounds of chicken breasts
  • 1 cups of barbecue (I used original barbecue sauce Target brand)
  • Adoba for seasoning
  • 1 bag of barbecue chips (crushed)

Directions

  • Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees
  • Cut your chicken into bite size pieces
  • Add your chicken to a mixing bowl, add season with adoba.
  • Add your barbecue sauce and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl add your crushed chips.
  • With a fork dip your chicken into the chips, and lay evenly on a greased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until crispy.
