Broccoli Salad

In Recipes on September 19, 2014 at 9:54 pm

One Day we had gotten the broccoli salad from the local deli and the hubs and I loved it! It was fairly expensive per pound so I decided to look for a recipe to make it myself. This was the best one I had found and I took it a bit further to make it my own. This recipe feeds a small crowd so take that in consideration!

1 14oz. pkg Fresh Broccoli (About 3 crowns)

1/2 Head of Cabbage

2 Carrots, juilenned

1 Red Onion, diced

1 lb. Bacon

1/4c. Sunflower Kernels

2/3 c. Raisins (or Craisins)


1 c. Mayo

1/4 c. Apple Cider Vinegar

2 T. Dijon Mustard

1/2 t. Salt

1 t. Lemon Pepper

1/4 c. Sugar


Mix together ingredients for dressing and set aside. In a large bowl mix together broccoli, carrots, cabbage, and red onions. Mix thoroughly. Add dressing, Mix until just coated. Add in bacon, sunflower kernels and craisins. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.


Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup

In Momma Must Have, Recipes on September 25, 2013 at 9:19 pm

I love fall and with fall comes pumpkin! I love that pumpkin is everywhere now. It is one of my favorite fall flavors. This past Sunday I was able to try out a new coffee shop and their “Treasure Spice Island”. It’s a chai latte with pumpkin. It was heavenly! I rushed home to see if I could find some pumpkin syrup in the area so I could make my own treat at home. In my search I found this amazing recipe by Annie Eats. I’ve modified it a tad for more pumpkin spice flavor. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Spice Syrup Pumpkin Syrup

1 1/2 C. Water
1 1/2 C. Sugar
2 t. Vitenamese Ground Cinnamon
1 t. Ground Nutmeg
1/2 t. Ginger
1/2 t. Ground Cloves
4 T. Pumpkin Puree

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and whisk frequently to blend flavors together. Cook over medium heat, taking care not to let mixture boil for 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool. Strain with a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth. I’d do it twice just to make sure you’ve got the thick pulp out. Store in an air tight container and keep refrigerated.

I was able to replicate the Treasure Spice Island Latte and I will be sharing that recipe with you soon!


Oven Fried Chicken (Or So They Call It)

In Uncategorized on August 28, 2013 at 7:38 am

I found this recipe on facebook and then pinned it to my board on pinterest. Of course like a lot of things on pinterest the website no longer gives you the recipe but thankfully I was able to add it to my pin description before it went away.

Here’s what the chicken looks like on the page:

Oven fried chicken      ...   1/2 cup parmesan cheese  1 cup Greek yogurt -plain  1 tsp garlic powder   1 1/2 tsp seasoning salt   1/2 tsp pepper     Spread mixture over chicken breasts, bake at 375 degrees for 45 mins--Absolutely Delish!

Now it’s time to be honest. When you make the recipe it does not look like this. This chicken has been fried. In fat. You can not make this happen in your oven without it having been fried at least a little bit. If I am wrong about this fact PLEASE correct me and teach me how.  So if you make this recipe you may think you have a pinterest fail. Breathe a sigh of relief because you have not failed!

This pin has been the most popular pin I’ve ever had but I feel like I need to change my tweeks with you and also show you what it really looks like coming out of the oven.

Oven “Fried” Chicken

2 Large Fresh Chicken Breasts

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

1 cup Greek yogurt -plain

2 tsp Garlic powder

1 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning

1/2 tsp Pepper

1/2 tsp Salt

Take the breasts and cut them into strips about 1-1 1/2 inches thick. Lay them out in a 9X13 deep baking dish.


Mix greek yogurt with cheese and spices and spread over top chicken.


Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes.  Or until top is slightly golden and chicken is cooked through.




As I said it clearly does not look like the original picture but it is still super yummy and now one of my favorite ways to prepare chicken!



Ham Biscuits with Cheese Sauce

Ham BiscuitThis is something that my Mom made for us while we were growing up. It’s still one of my favorite things to do with left-over ham.

Ham Biscuits 

2 ¼ c Bisquick/Jiffy or your favorite biscuit mix

2/3 c. Milk

1 ½ c. Chopped Ham


Preheat oven to 450°F. Mix together biscuit mix and milk. Once it’s sticking well roll out into a rectangle and about 1/4 thick. Spread mustard over the dough as liberally as you like. I normally do a nice zig-zag across the entire thing. Then sprinkle on the ham pieces. Roll up the dough jelly-roll style and slice about 1 inch thick.

Place on a baking dish, not touching sides. Bake for about 10 minutes or until a golden color on top.

They taste the best with some cheese sauce over the top. For the cheese sauce, 2-3 cups of cheese (depending on how cheesy you would like the sauce) and add  about 2 cups of milk until or add until you get the desired consistency. Serve over biscuits while still warm. Ham Biscuit with Cheese
