Easy Crockpot Chicken and Rice

I have a few key recipes that are my go-to’s for busy weeks.  Most of those include the crockpot, since who doesn’t like meals that are as easy as throwing food together and letting it cook all day?  This is one of the recipes- it takes a total of about 4 ingredients and maybe 2o minutes of prep time. Crockpot Chicken and Rice yields: 4 servings 1 package frozen chicken breasts (I use cutlets, so there is about 4-5 pieces of meat) 1 can cream of mushroom soup (or cream of  ...

Yesterday was my awesome hubby’s birthday!

Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream

My Aunt and Uncle are the King and Queen of making liquid nitrogen ice cream, seriously. They have the process down!  And since my uncle has a chemical engineering background, he explains each step of the process as he goes- feels like you’re on an episode of Bill Nye the Science Guy a bit (it’s pretty cool)!  I always have thought it sounds kind of scary to make, like you need a degree in Bio-Chem or something.  And I am not going to lie, it is dangerous- safety goggles and  ...

White Party for Misha’s Birthday

I have ALWAYS wanted to host a white party.  They look so clean, fresh, and just extremely summery!  So for my friend Misha’s birthday, we threw a party at our house- here are some pictures that my friend Megan took! Check out her website at http://www.megancurtisphotography.com ! The cake I made was a layered s’mores birthday cake- it may look a little different than your typical birthday cake, but it tasted pretty great!  I got the recipe from A Suble Revelry:  ...

Pannekoeken

You know the recipes that just make you think of family?  Of home? For as long back as I can remember, my mom would make a pannekoeken (sounds like pan-a-coo-ken) for Saturday Morning Breakfast (yes, that needs to be capitalized- it was quite the ritual at our house).  Strangely, we call it a “dutch baby” in my family- but that just sounds really bad when you say, oh hey, let’s have dutch babies for brunch.  Anyways… pannekoeken is a dutch pancake that is very light  ...

Baked Oatmeal

I am a firm believer in eating a good breakfast to start the day off right. But sometimes, there aren’t many quick, healthy options. My mother-in-law has been making this recipe for a long time, and she always has a bag of baked oatmeal squares in the freezer for quick breakfasts. At their house, they put frozen berries on top, microwave it, and drizzle some milk over it. It is just like eating cobbler for breakfast! Here is her recipe: Baked Oatmeal 1 cup oil 1 cup brown sugar (you  ...
