When I was growing up, my mom would make this amazing creamy chicken enchiladas recipe. I would say it was one of the staple meals in our house. She would make a large pan of enchiladas especially if we had company coming over. My friends loved them so much that they would ask for them before they came over! Plus, these enchiladas make the best leftovers.
I LOVE Chick-fil-a chicken nuggets! I love the breading and the chicken. BUT what I really love is making chicken nuggets at home—by the batch. My husband found a baked chicken nugget recipe on Pinterest (he doesn’t usually pin anything but sends them to me). I took a look at the ingredient list and thought, “Gosh! This looks easy enough to try.” I am here to tell you that they are easy to make and I know you can do it too.
The chicken nuggets turned out great and we both couldn’t get enough of them. After making the recipe exactly the first time or two, I have tweaked it to make it my own. I enjoy making these and the prep and baking time are totally doable. I set up my “station” and this last time I made a game out of trying to prep all the chicken and get them on the pan before the oven signaled it finished preheating.
I have created an infographic to show how simple it is to create these delicious chicken nuggets. (Also, feel free to save it for later by pinning it!)
Why is it that I only see peanut brittle around Christmas? None of the ingredients are seasonal. Besides the peanuts, you probably have the other 4 ingredients on hand–water, sugar, light corn syrup and baking soda. That’s it!
This was my first Christmas I’ve attempted making peanut brittle. The first batch turned out nearly perfect which prompted me to ask my husband how someone could mess it up. I was about to find out.
My husband’s coworker has two 20-year-old pear trees that are weighted down with ripe Bartlett pears. We ended up picking one plastic crate in under 30 minutes. I have so many pears and so few recipes that call for them. So… I headed over to Pinterest and found a plethora of fresh pear recipes. I spent quite a few evenings baking.
Here is the week’s roundup:
I have an addiction to Pinterest, but who doesn’t? My problem is that I actually love trying the things I pin—some victories and even more failures. Here is one of my victories: Refrigerator Dill Pickles. I recently gained a few last-of-the-season pickling cucumbers and wanted to try my hand at pickles. I scoured Pinterest for a few recipes and selected one that looked promising. With the ingredient list in hand, I headed to the grocery store to gather the few supplies.
