Easy Creamy Ranch Crockpot Chicken with Vegetables

I was in the mood for comfort food, easy peasy comfort food! Serves 2-3 In a crockpot combine 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts with the following… 1 packet ranch dressing mix 1 can cream of chicken soup plus 1 full can of water 1/4 tsp garlic powder 1/4 tsp onion powder dash of pepper After one hour you’ll add in 2 cups frozen vegetables of your choice, defrosted Process… In a crockpot cook on high all ingredients except for the vegetables for 3 hours. At the 3 hour mark add in the defrosted vegetables, combine all well. Cook covered for one more hour. Shred the chicken to create bite size pieces. I did this in the crockpot, it was easy to pull apart the chicken using 2 forks. 4 hours total… to create this creamy goodness. Serve over mashed potatoes with biscuits on the side. Enjoy! This has such great flavor, really, it’s so very yummy and it’s so easy to put together! The only negative is that it has ingredients heavier than I like …

Enchiritos For The Win

Who remembers these? The famous Enchirito, a Taco Bell thing, no longer on the menu. Unless… you ask?! Yup, at least in my neck of the woods they definitely are a possible indulgence at Taco Bell or as shown here, at home. I found this simple recipe on Pinterest. I opted for the easiest version, I seasoned the meat with taco seasoning and I used canned refried beans. Throw them together in a jiffy, bake for 20-30 minutes at 350 and walla, you have one (or two) tasty treat/s! Oh so good! Top as you see fit 😉 with chopped green onion and sliced olives, or fresh chopped white onion, cilantro, sour cream or just extra sauce. * I baked this batch with slice olives on, after baking I topped the enchiritos with chopped green onion. Also, for the filling I used ground turkey instead of ground beef. Here’s the story on this delectable treat… … Happy day, g.

Dutch Pancake Divine w/or without Meyer Lemon

I tried my hand at one yesterday, the result was divine! I was gifted a bag of delish and complicated (tasting) Meyer lemons recently, a squeeze of one wedge really added to the finished product here. Use regular lemon if that’s what you have, by all means. The tartness of any lemon will add to the good flavor experience. The second one I made I enjoyed it with a bit of regular fresh lemon juice, much 😉 powdered sugar and apricot preserves, oh my yumminess! Good combo, trust me. Notes on the process… I simply blended my mix. Be sure to scrape the sides halfway through the blending process. 2nd day, I mixed the batter well before adding it to my hot cast iron skillet. Don’t fill your cast iron pan too high, that was my mistake the 1st time. It’s a balance of course no set measurement, it depends on the size of your pan and the depth of it. For my second attempt I decided to fill my cast iron skillet about 1/4 …
