Quick holiday cookies

Quick holiday cookies If you’re like me, you may have a million things to do between balancing a working life with your social life. You do not want to show up anywhere empty handed, but you also do not want to bring a package of Oreos to your next get together. Problem solved. I’ve been making these cookies for the past couple of years and they are always a hit. The best part is, they are fairly inexpensive to make and they are not very time consuming. Supplies you need: – Package of peanut butter cookie mix (I used Betty Crocker brand which you can get for around $2) – Ingredients listed on the back of your cookie mix (i.e.: eggs, vegetable oil) – Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (I purchased the party size bag for $8 because I’ve learned that a small bag often leaves you short) – Mini muffin pan – Parchment paper – Cooling rack Directions: 1. Preheat your oven to 350, or as directed on your cookie mix package. 2. Use the instructions on your cookie mix package to mix everything correctly. 3. Gently roll the peanut butter cookie mix into little balls and place them, individually, into the mini muffin pan. 4. Place the cookies in the oven for eight minutes.

(Tip: I keep my Reese’s in the refrigerator until I am ready to unwrap them because it makes them a lot easier to work with when they are not melting all over.) 5. When your timer goes off, remove the mini muffin pan from...

Honey Chicken Lettuce Wrap

I post way too many photos of food that I make on Instagram… but that has also led to quite a few people asking me for different recipes to try so I wanted to go ahead and post the information for some of them.

What you need: – Honey – Vegetable oil – Large lettuce leaves – Bean Sprouts – Almond Slices – Kale Sprouts – Chicken breast Approximate time from start to finish: 15 minutes 1) Cook your chicken. For this particular meal, there was very little vegetable oil put in the pan–enough so that the chicken wouldn’t stick. When your chicken is almost finished, begin coating it with honey. The vegetable oil will also prevent the honey from burning and caking on to your pan. It also helps thin the honey out a little bit so that it’s easier to coat your chicken breast. When done, remove from heat. 2) Take a large lettuce leaf and place it on your plate. Make sure the bottom part of the leaf is cut off far enough to where the remainder of the leaf is flexible enough to roll. Then place your ingredients–in no specific order–onto the leaf. 3) You can cut your chicken in strips or small pieces after it has cooled a little bit and your lettuce leaf is prepared. Place it on top of everything. 4) Everyone has a special way that they like to...
