Chick and Chicken nugget
Listen up friends, help here it is, visit this site one of the most important items I will ever post on this site. My sister-n-law Jennifer sent me an unmarked jar of seasoning. Told me it was her favorite stuff so I decided I’d try it. I will never cook without this stuff again. I use it on roasts, pilule marinating steaks and in hamburgers. The flavor is unbelievable.

For roasts all I do is season the meat with salt and pepper then coat the meat with the seasoning and sear. The flavors are locked in ready to cook in the oven or in a crock pot. The last time I made hamburgers I skipped on the condiments and extra stuff only using the roast seasoning and a little olive oil. The crowd raved over the taste. Even the kids who are normally adverse to burgers were captivated. I love this stuff so much I wish I could put a bottle in every household. Unfortunately financially that is not possible. However, I have decided to share a bottle with one of you. The giveaway is for a 14-ounce bottle of Lindberg Snider Porterhouse and Roast Seasoning.  It is great on beef, poultry, pork and seafood.

Zucchini Cobbler

I skipped making zucchini soup to make zucchini cobbler all because I had some apples and lemons to use up. I was a little concerned with the amount of sugar and flour, no rx a tidbit I did not notice until I was in the process of making the cobbler. Since we tend to eat dessert only once a week this would have to count. Zucchini cobbler tasted surprisingly like apples. Probably the apple cider I threw in there because I did not have enough lemon juice. This recipe gave me inspiration to use vegetables in the place of fruit more often.

Serve with a little vanilla ice cream or whipped cream sprinkled with cinnamon.

Source: Unknown
5 cups zucchini (about 4-5) peeled, seeded, and chopped
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 cups white sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups butter, chilled
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat over to 375 degrees. Spray a 9 X 13 pan with cooking spray.

Place zucchini and lemon juice in a medium saucepan. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 15 minutes or until tender. Stir in 3/4 cups sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and nutmeg. Simmer 1 minute longer; remove from heat and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir 1/2 cup crumb mixture into zucchini mixture. Press 1/2 the remaining crumb mixture into the prepared pan. Spread zucchini evenly over crust. Crumble remaining crumb mixture over zucchini, and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

Variations:
Use half the amount of lemon juice and add apple cider to make a 1/2 cup.

Help Yourself Pitchers

If you have little ones, medications the phrase “I can do it by myself” may sound like a broken record by now. These little guys want so much to be independent, more about yet they don’t understand they still need a  little help on a few things. I spied these Help Yourself Pitchers while volunteering at Mason’s preschool last year and finally decided to purchase one. Lakeshore Learning is the only place I have been able to find them. They come in a pack of 6 for $20, so you could go in with a couple of other moms or give the extras away as gifts.

I keep some  in the refrigerator filled with milk and  juice. The kids feel so grown up when they can pour their own milk for cereal or refreshing drinks during the day or at meal times. Sometimes, I catch them playing restaurant serving up beverages in cups. As the title states, here, help yourself guys and I do not have to worry about one of them spilling half the gallon of milk because they want to “do it by myself”.

BeaterBlade for Kitchen Aide Mixers

I admit I am not the best baker. Baking is too precise for me. I enjoy throwing things like vegetables and herbs in a pot and hoping for the best. Movie night came and the gang wanted cookies. I wanted to oblige them, treatment however, medical we were all out of granulated sugar. The pleasing mom that I am I grabbed the brown sugar and went to work.

First I had to find a recipe. Some days I worship the internet for the great resource that it is. Other days I curse its very existence…like today. Today all I wanted was a golden star to appear on the screen next to a link to the greatest peanut butter cookie recipe ever. Instead, diagnosis all I got was page after page of hopefuls. I was short on time as well as ingredients so I went with the one that looked pretty and seemed easy. Then I altered it a bit. I had to figure out if I could even use all brown sugar in the recipe. I had heard once that using brown sugar in the place of granulated sugar would make a flatter cookie as well as slightly alter the taste. I did a little research and discovered that if I add a little baking soda they should be fine.

I added between 1/4 to 1/2 tsp baking soda to 1 cup packed brown sugar. We use Kirkland Organic peanut butter which has a runny consistency. I was worried about the brown sugar causing the cookies to spread too thin in addition to the runny peanut butter. I figured if I added a tad more flour then I should be fine. I added 1 tablespoon wheat pastry flour (to make me feel healthier) and 1 tablespoon wheat germ in addition to the 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour. Definitely my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe so far. It was tender and did not have the floury taste typical of peanut butter cookies.

Source: Adapted from Simply Recipes
1 cup packed brown sugar
Scant 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (see notes above)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 heaping teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix scant 1/2 teaspoon baking soda with brown sugar. Mix the butter and sugar until combined. Add the peanut butter, vanilla and egg. Mix together the dry ingredients – flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir into the sugar butter mixture.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Using a scoop drop onto ungreased cookie sheets. If you do not have a scooper roll dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Pressed slightly with a fork in a criss cross pattern then baked for 9 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for a minute; transfer to rack to cool completely.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

For chewier cookies, bake at 300°F for 15 minutes.

beaterblade for kitchen aide

Years ago my mother-n-law handed down her Kitchen Aide mixer, viagra 60mg to me. Stephen thinks she has had the mixer for at least 30 years. That is what I call a wives tale or excellent quality. A few weeks ago the wire whisk attachment broke. I remembered last week when I went to make frosting for Mason’s birthday cake. (Canned frosting does not pipe very well.)

This week I decided to try searching for a replacement. While in the process I wanted to find a paddle since I did not have one. I found this really great gadget called the Beater Blade. It is not an authorized Kitchen Aide attachment though, pills which makes me a little hesitant. Especially since the attachment is made of a plastic rather than metal. It is certainly worth a shot for those of us who do not want to be bothered with scraping the sides of the bowl. Amazon carries them for both 5 and 6 quart, tilting head and raising bowl mixers. You can also get them in gray or pink.

Enameled 7 Quart Cast Iron Casserole Dish

Adelin is passionate about princesses right now. I am thrilled to see her actually playing and interested in something other than Caillou. She saw a Princess playhouse in a toy magazine and wanted me to take her to the store right away. I smiled, viagra then tried to distract her with something else.

While we were in the backyard playing, decease I noticed a large cardboard box the kids had not yet managed to destroy. The dusty gears in my head started to grind and smoke. Ten minutes later, Adelin had her very own Princess Castle. I think I was more astonished that she actually loved it. The next step is paint.

I have coveted this pot since Patty brought hers over to make raspberry jam. I love the colors: Sand, cheap Red, physician Green, advice Blue. What I like most is how wide and roomy it is and how well it cooks. The dish can transfer from stovetop to oven with ease. My mom sent a gift certificate for my birthday to buy a set of Martha Stewart Ice Cream dishes that are no longer available. How convenient. I was able to put the money toward my Martha Stewart Cast Iron Casserole dish instead. Thanks mom! I love my birthday present.
