Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan

Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan

I know a recipe turns out to be good when my kids eat up their food faster than I can start eating my food after everyone is dished up. This Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan recipe is one of those delicious, family-friendly recipes that my kids loved. The chicken was so tender from cooking all day long. It turned out to be a yummy dish! And it really was quite easy to put in the crock pot.

It did take a few extra minutes to brown the chicken and breading, but that process is part of what makes this Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan so good. Here is the recipe:

Bow Tie Chicken Salad Sandwiches

chicken salad bow tie sandwichesI recently attended a luncheon where these Bow Tie Chicken Salad Sandwiches were served. They were absolutely delicious! And I just had to make them for my family this past week. These Bow Tie Chicken Salad Sandwiches are perfect for a summer picnic or family gathering. What makes this chicken salad delicious is that it calls for Kraft Coleslaw Dressing or Hidden Valley Coleslaw Dressing. Don’t substitute the dressing because this is what makes it taste really good.

This recipe makes between 12-15 large croissant sandwiches. If you plan to make these sandwiches for more people than just your family, then you’ll want to double or triple the recipe. A big thank you to a good friend of mine for this recipe!

Here is how to make the Bow Tie Chicken Salad Sandwiches:

The Best Peanut Butter Bars

This peanut butter bar recipe is definitely one that you’ll want to keep on hand.  Here is how to make the Best Peanut Butter Bars:

Bunny Paw Print Cookies

 

Bunny Paw Prints Cookies Easter

Since Easter is coming up soon, my kids and I decided to make a treat together that we could eat and also that we could share with others. We made these Bunny Paw Print Cookies and they turned out so yummy! Plus, the cookies were so soft, and they had just the right amount of icing to make them taste declicious. And my kids really enjoyed rolling the dough into small balls and making the indents on the cookies after they were baked.

 

The recipe to the Bunny Paw Print Cookies is below, but here are a few tips: Once you make the dough, you’ll use a Tablespoon measuring spoon of dough and roll it in a ball to make the foot of the paw print. Then make three toes by using a teaspoon measuring spoon and rolling 3 separate teaspoons of dough into balls. Place the three small dough balls next to the large dough ball on a cookie sheet. (I only placed 6 paw prints per cookie sheet.) Using two fingers slightly flattened the larger dough ball. This will help it bake more evenly. Continue rolling out balls of dough for the paw prints until all the dough is gone.

Bake the cookies at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes, no longer. Remove from the oven and immediately use a Tablespoon measuring spoon to make an indent on the foot of the cookies by pressing down and a teaspoon measuring spoon to make an indent on the toes of the cookies by pressing down. Then use the icing recipe below to add icing to the indents.

 

They turned out really cute! Here is the recipe how to make Bunny Paw Print Cookies:

Navajo Tacos and Indian Fry Bread

 

 

I love eating Navajo Tacos, also known as Indian Fry Bread. I especially have a lot of fond memories eating them on campouts. And after I eat one or two Navajo Tacos (because they are so good), then I always eat another one with honey butter on the fry bread. It is delicious! If you have never had honey butter on Indian Fry Bread, then you need to try it!

Here’s how to make Navajo Tacos and Indian Fry Bread:

7 Make Ahead Freezer Meals

make ahead freezer mealsI love having make ahead freezer meals on hand especially on busy days when I don’t have much time to make dinner. If I have easy dinner ideas I can pull out of the freezer, this saves me from running to the store at the last minute or going to the drive-thru to purchase fast food. It takes time to plan and make freezer meals, but in the long run it saves you time and money.

I’ll admit that when I was planning out a week of freezer meals, I thought I would have time on one day to get all these freezer meals completed. Well, guess what? Life happened, and every day when I was trying to do the freezer meals, I would make one freezer meal and then that’s all the time I had. So I’ve learned that for me and my crazy schedule, I can only plan to make one or two freezer meals a day. And since most of the freezer meals make a double batch, I usually used one of the freezer meals for dinner that night and then I froze the other one. So for those of you busy moms like me, try only doing a few at a time like I did.
