Homemade Chicken Nuggets

Homemade Chicken Nuggets
I have been meaning to make these chicken nuggets for quite a while. I’ve seen this recipe in several places around the net, so not sure who the genius was behind this wonderful McDonald’s copycat, but these chicken nuggets are a new favorite. The best part is knowing exactly what’s in these little chicken goodies and knowing there aren’t any preservatives or mystery ingredients either. To give you an idea of how these taste, my husband came in and grabbed one off the plate. After his first bite he made the “mmmm” sound and then exclaimed: “Wow! With that, he piled some into a bowl and left me standing in the kitchen smiling. These nuggets don’t have the exact same consistency as McDonald’s, they seem a little denser, or maybe it’s more compact. First you’re going to cut some boneless chicken breasts into cubes, then run them through the food processor. Here’s what it looks like when it’s done. Mix together the salt, pepper, onion powder, oregano and parsley. Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Related:  Finger Foodactual food

- StumbleUpon How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!) This bread takes a little bit of time to prepare, but in about half an hour I had filled my bundt pan with little dough balls, each with a piece of pepperoni and cheese stuffed within it. My new definition of bliss: warm dough with a cheesy center and a bite of pepperoni.

It is a recipe and flavor combination) inspired by a recent trip to New Zealand. But before we get too far into the food side of things I want to talk a bit about resolutions. Between marathon-length international flights and media-free evenings in a camper van I've had ample time to think about resolutions in the days leading up to the new year. The funny thing is, my resolutions don't seem to change drastically from year to year. A couple years back I wrote, "I look forward to 2005 being a year where; I see more of the world I live in through travel and photography, I spend more time with my sister, I make an effort to collaborate on projects with interesting, innovative individuals." Thinking about this year, all of those resolutions still resonate. On the road back to the hotel from the produce shop I looked up to see a billboard marketing a brand of New Zealand potato chips. Serves 4 - 6.

I was rather surprised as most kids, including my own, don’t like food that is touching or mixed up. In other words, casseroles are usually out. But when my kids see something they want me to make, I usually oblige. I have to admit this quiche is pretty cool, it does taste exactly like a cheeseburger. Your first bite will surprise you as your mind is seeing quiche but you are tasting burger. If you happen to have a man who will not eat quiche, well, I think he’ll be happy with this one. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, milk, mustard, pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Unroll pie crust into a 9″ deep-dish pie plate (make sure it’s deep dish, otherwise, the mixture will not fit) and flute the edges. Bake at 375 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

5 More Days Of Brown Bag Lunch Ideas I’m trying to keep a couple of weeks ahead on brown bag lunch plans–just for my sanity. The twins are gluten-free, so my job is to make sure their brown bag lunches are even more appealing than anything school lunch can come up with. Zachie and MacLean are such good kids, but it’s tempting to switch if a buddy has something that looks good. The gut issues that follow are not worth it–but that’s hard to remember at 13. Take a look and see if these look good to you…these ideas and photos come courtesy of the blog. 5 More Days Of Brown Bag Lunch Ideas: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Be Socialable, Share You Might Also Like Comments The Best Macaroni and Cheese Recipe Ever I can say this is the best macaroni and cheese recipe ever because it's not really my recipe. I tweaked it a tiny bit - basically made it even more fattening - but otherwise, it's someone else's. It's from someone named Bev, who posted her recipe on Recipezaar and to whom I am eternally grateful. See, macaroni and cheese is pretty much my all-time favorite food. One of my first-ever memories is of sitting down in front of the TV with a bowl full of macaroni and cheese and watching Emergency! I should probably stop there. So back to Bev. Bev is probably totally creeped out now too. I'm a total freakfest today. Oh - and this recipe is great with many noodles other than macaroni (like penne, yum!) Okay, I'm shutting up now. (Conchiglie pasta - this organic Montebello stuff is out of this world:) Here's the recipe! Adapted from the Bev's Macaroni and Cheese recipe on Recipezaar Serves 5 - 6 Ingredients 8 oz. to 10 oz. macaroni or other pasta (like conchiglie!) Instructions

Gluten, Grain, and Garbage-Free Chick-fil-A Nuggets - StumbleUpon Update: Please note that I’ve improved upon this recipe – check out the new version here. Over the past few weeks we’ve spent a fair amount of time out in town, shopping for gifts, and we have often found ourselves away from the house with no lunch plans. Chipotle is our emergency standby, but sometimes we’re tempted to grab Chick-fil-A since they’re everywhere (there are 30 of them within 20 miles of our house!). But as Melissa at Hunt.Gather.Love. points out, regardless of how you feel about Chick-fil-A’s stance on current social issues, the quality of their food alone should be enough to boycott the restaurant chain. So I set out to recreate these chicken nuggets, and most importantly, reduce the ingredients list of this dish from 30+ ingredients down to 10 with minimal compromise on taste. Step one: cut up your chicken into 1″ chunks. After an hour, open the bag and pour out any excess pickle juice. Prep your dry ingredients by stirring them all together. Like this: Like Loading...
