Cap’n Crunch Chicken

Cap'n Crunch Cereal

Not too long ago, I was listening to my favorite radio station, Kidd Kraddick in the Morning, and the radio host Kellie Rasberry mentioned Cap'n Crunch Chicken. The name instantly intrigued me, especially since I had two boxes of Cap'n Crunch needing to be used. She said that Planet Hollywood served it and it tasted amazing, so when I got home I did a little bit of research and discovered that I had most of the ingredients that Cap'n Crunch Chicken takes. I must warn you that I had to alter some of the cereal but in the end, I think my Cap'n Crunch Chicken turned out amazing! As I was gathering the ingredients for Cap'n Crunch Chicken I realized that I did not have regular Cap'n Crunch nor did I have regular cornflakes, so I used w … [Read more...]

Italian Meatballs

Italian Meatballs

I recently won a Healthy Solutions Spice Blends packet and one of the blends was Italian Meatballs. In a previous post that I wrote, I had used the Healthy Solutions Spice Blends pack to make some Savory Meatloaf. The meatloaf, which can be seen here, was over the top, head over heels amazing, so I knew that the Italian Meatballs would be just as good. I used the recipe on the back of the Italian Meatballs Healthy Solutions Spice Blends pack and not only was it simple but these meatballs turned out delicious! The Healthy Solutions Spice Blends can be purchased online and at select stores. They have so many blends that are available, in addition to rubs. If you know someone that loves to cook, this could be a great item to include in a … [Read more...]

Is Santa Claus Dead

Is Santa Claus Dead

When I was a little girl,  my sister and I lived and breathed Santa Claus. We knew that if we were not being good that Santa Claus was taking notes so we'd better get along and mind the rules. I remember there was a time that Santa Claus actually visited our school and a time when my sister and I actually heard his sleigh bells ring on Christmas Eve! When classmates would say that Santa Claus was not real, I would just keep quiet and think of how stupid they were for not believing. When my now adult kids were younger, as we drove around looking at Christmas lights we would look up at the sky and we would spot Santa's sleigh, it was a little red dot in the sky. Then when we got home we would watch the weather channel and it would show where … [Read more...]

Grapefruit Bread

TexaSweet Grapefruit Bread

*TexaSweet was super nice enough to send me some grapefruit to taste test and incorporate into a recipe. All opinions are my own* I was so excited when a representative from TexaSweet contacted me and asked if she could send me some grapefruit to taste and incorporate into a recipe. Of course, I gladly accepted because I love a good challenge! I will admit that I am not the biggest fan of grapefruit because when I was younger my mom used to make us eat it and it was always so sour that I had to sneak spoonfuls of sugar on it, so because of that memory, I've not had a grapefruit since. When I cut open the TexaSweet grapefruit, the color was beautiful and it was very juicy. After I searched my favorite site, Pinterest, I found an … [Read more...]
