Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.
Today’s Friday Foodie Feature comes with a warning!
I decided to make Duncan Hines milk chocolate brownies in a bowl instead of a pan. I followed the directions on the box, however, since I baked them in Pyrex bowls they should not have been filled to the top!
Spray the bowls with non stick cooking spray, pour in the batter but DO NOT OVERFILL, otherwise the insides will not be done in the amount of time stated on the box.
I eventually scooped the partially baked brownies out of the bowls and put them into a baking dish to finish cooking.
It was Malik who asked if there were supposed to be gooey on the inside. So before realizing they were not completely done, I had topped each with a few scoops of Duncan Hines cherry topping and a few whooshes of Reddi Wip Cream.
This delicious dessert looked wonderful and after completely baking tasted just as good!
Have you ever had any cooking failures?

Hello Friends and Welcome to Slow Cooker Saturday!
Do you find yourself rushing through the work week in order to get to the weekends? If so, do you realize that you are just rushing your life away? I know because I’m guilty of doing it, so from now on, other than Mondays I’m going to slow down and enjoy all of the week days.
Do you live for the weekends?
I’m up early and out for the first dress rehearsal for Goodwill’s 2014 Runway Show. The models will get a chance to see and try on what we, the stylists has chosen for them to wear. I met with my models previously and they had an opportunity to try on their outfits in Goodwill fitting rooms. Today with some added accessories we will all get a chance to see what they will be wearing on the runway and I am anxious.

Rinsed chicken breast and placed on Wax Paper
Covered with another sheet of Wax Paper and flattened with kitchen mallet
Spread minced garlic and sprinkled with a little black pepper
Layered with Spinach leaves and covered with Mozzarella Cheese
Rolled Chicken Breasts and secured with wooden toothpicks

Have a good night – Smooches!
In my house crock pot cooking isn’t just for fall and winter months, it’s actually more convenient and a real time saver in the warmer months. After work the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven or stove especially when it’s hot like it was yesterday. I would prefer to walk into the house to a fully prepared meal smelling good! Using the crock pot gives me more time to sit on the “back 40” or take a walk around the neighborhood.
These were the ingredients for Monday night’s dinner.
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables
2-3 chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 jar of mushrooms
Pam Cooking Spray
You can use any cream soups
Spray Crock Pot with Pam or any cooking spray
Put in frozen veggies
Top with chicken breasts or thighs
I cut up an onion and added the mushrooms
You can use dried onions if you don’t have fresh
Sprinkled a dash of seasoning and dried thyme
Covered chicken & mushrooms with soups
Cooked on low for 7 hours
If desired, add a cup of uncooked white/brown rice when you get home
Poured in a cup of long grain rice
Turned off crock pot, stirred in rice, recovered and let sit for 30 mins while I changed my clothes
Dinner is served - I sprinkled mine with cayenne pepper
