French Bread Pizza

French Bread Pizza

When you were younger did you ever try Stouffer’s French Bread Pizza?  When I was a kid I remember every time I would walk down the frozen aisle section in the supermarket, I would always beg my mom for us to buy the frozen french bread pizzas.  I don’t know what it was but they just looked so yummy I needed to have one.  Of course then when we moved to France it was so easy to make them ourselves since we would buy french baguettes every day.

I think one of the best things about these french bread pizzas are that they can be made individually or for large crowds.  The choice of toppings that you can add are pretty yummilicious.  I mean you can go the old fashion way with just pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and maybe some pepperoni.  Or you can jazz it up with alfredo sauce, chicken and Parmesan.  The choices are truly endless. Serve these pizzas either straight out the oven or room temperature, either way its delicious! Now let’s start making some French Bread Pizza:-) Read the rest of this entry »

Sprinkle Gooey Cake Bars

So we are 1 week back in to school and I gotta tell you it feels pretty good.  I mean Yea, the schedules are just getting adjusted and being put in and, Yea, the homework and the projects haven’t really started, but routine has and that my friends… is pretty good.  I think after summer and not having a routine the days just started to roll into one and we didn’t know Monday from a Friday.

Now, don’t get me wrong I’m sure in the next few weeks I probably will be singing a different tune– like running around like a mad woman– but as of now things are good.

The summer was pretty great though… the kids traveled all over from Atlanta to Miami and of course let’s not forget our amazing Disney Cruise we went one, which I still need to share those photos, which I promise I will one of these days– will explain the loopiness later on. :-)

Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake

  Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake

Summer is almost finished and the family and I just got back from an awesome week on the Disney Cruise Fantasy, more to come on that in the next few weeks… It’s truly amazing how being at sea for 7 days it takes a while to get used to being back on land… :-)  But I’m back and ready to start cooking and baking and making a mess in my kitchen, so to speak. You already know my love affair with cinnamon rolls, sticky buns, and all things pretty much cinnamony (yes, I know that is not a word)… I mean I have made cinnamon roll pull apart muffins, cinnamon roll sugar cake bars, even made cinnamon roll cake.  I’m pretty sure the list could go on but I don’t wanna bore you.

Back to the topic on hand this coffee cake that is filled with a layer of actual cinnamon rolls.  Yep, you heard correctly… I took a can of cinnamon rolls and squished them down as my bottom layer and then made an easy coffee cake mix. How simple is that, pretty simple… why not try it yourself!

Bacon wrapped BBQ Chicken

bacon wrapped bbq chicken

What is it about wrapping food in bacon that just turns me on.  I mean seriously everything is better with a little bacon.  Hahaha…. you think I’m nuts! I love to make bbq chicken during the summer, because I love to use my grill.  Now yes, I live in sunny Florida, but that doesn’t mean the grill season is a 12 month event, sometimes you just can’t use your grill here, but on the days that you can My husband and I definitely take advantage of it.

I had some left over chicken breasts in the refrigerator the other day that I knew I needed to cook and decided to do something a little different with it.  I was gonna grill it of course, but before I did I was gonna wrap those babies in some thick cut juicy bacon!

I love chocolate!

Especially warm double chocolate chip muffins out of the oven.  Do you love chocolate?  If you do then you wold love these extra chocolatey muffins made with cocoa powder and loaded with chocolate chips.  This would satisfy any chocolate lovers craving.  Before baking I like to sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top. These muffins will make your kitchen smell wonderful and your mouth start to drool. Try making these muffins on a lazy Sunday morning and enjoy with a cup of coffee, tea and don’t forget your butter.  Make sure you spread a little butter on your warm muffin…. Delish!

BBQ Bacon Chicken Burgers

bbq bacon chicken burger

Summertime should really be called grill time.  Any chance I can get to grill outside I’m all for it.  The quintessential food to grill are burgers. I love me some burgers.  Nothing beats a juicy burger filled with cheese and of course some crispy bacon.  What makes these burgers so yummy is that I used some ground chicken and added some barbecue sauce, cheese, bacon, lettuce and of course caramelized onions.

Ohhh weee, these were so good! These chicken burgers are a great alternative and a somewhat healthier option then the regular beef burgers.  Especially when the chicken patties are packed with tons of flavor and simple to make. Read the rest of this entry »

Fathers day Folded-Shirt Card Hallmark is one of my favorite stores to shop in.  I love looking through the aisles for that special card for that special someone.  For holidays and special events I find myself in there for hours at a time… don’t ask I just do.  This year however I wanted the kids to do something a little different.  When they were younger they loved to make homemade cards for my husband and I.  This year I found the cutest idea and the kids and I thought that it would be perfect for Father’s Day this year. All you need is construction paper, crayons or colored pencils, glue a little imagination and a lotta love.  The following directions when I first read it were somewhat confusing but thank goodness it had a video tutorial you could follow.  (trust me this video is a lifesaver) I hope the picture tutorial below helps… ;-) PicMonkey Collage9 Plus its a great way to get the kid to put their own decorative spin on the cards… :-) Read the rest of this entry »

Mini Hashbrown Casseroles

12 Jun 2013 In: Recipes

 

mini hashbrown casserole

Does your family have a favorite recipe that they ask for you to make over and over again.  We have a few of those, and this one, Hashbrown Casserole is definitely a crowd pleaser.  I love this recipe so much because it can be made for large crowds and small ones too.  I always make it for Back to School for the Teachers and faculty, Family Gatherings for Brunch, and I also made it for my daughter’s birthday.

Now for KK’s birthday I changed it up… do you remember me sharing with you her Pancake & Pajama Birthday Party… I made them as hand meld mini hashbrown casseroles.  I wanted it to be easier for the kids and it looked so cute as individual casseroles.  I don;t know what it is but I think the cheesiness combined with the potatoes just make it such a hearty yummilicious breakfast treat.

You can make this as a large casserole dish, just omit making the hashbrown crust and go starting to making the filling and pour it into a greased casserole dish. ;-)

Making these are so easy and can be made ahead of time, which really makes life so much easier.  If you haven’t had a chance to make these for your family or friends trust me now is the time to try it, you will ask yourself why have I never made this before.

Now let’s get to the good part…
