Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Leather | FoodBabbles Maddy has been on a “fruit roll-ups” kick lately. Not the actual name brand kind that I so vividly remember peeling away from a cellophane wrapper when I was a kid. No, Maddy’s been eating the Gerber toddler kind. So the other day while at my in-laws house, my mother-in-law said “I can’t believe you haven’t tried making these from scratch yet.” The other brilliant and wonderful thing about homemade fruit leather is you can make it with hardly any sugar! Just ask Maddy! Enjoy! Strawberry Kiwi Fruit Leather Easy, healthy homemade fruit leather for a guilt-free treat. Ingredients 2 1/4 cups chopped strawberries 2 1/4 cups chopped kiwis 1 tablespoon lemon juice Sugar, to taste (I used 3 tablespoons) Instructions Place the fruit in a saucepan with the lemon juice over medium-low heat.

Marinate some chicken breasts in honey, mustard, and lemon, then top with bacon, mushrooms and cheese… How could that go wrong? I love to serve this dish with a side of oven fries and a crisp lettuce salad. Begin by making the marinade for the chicken. Here’s what you’ll need for the toppings: sliced fresh mushrooms, mostly cooked bacon (it will cook more when baked in the oven), grated cheddar, and fresh parsley. After the chicken has marinated, heat a small amount of oil in a large skillet. Scrape out the pan, and toss in the mushrooms. Assemble the chicken in a large baking dish. After baking for about 20 minutes, chop up some fresh parsley and sprinkle atop before serving! Honey Mustard Chicken with Bacon and Mushrooms 1 to 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts 1/4 cup Dijon mustard 1/4 cup honey 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Crusty Bread Jan. 1, 2015: Just released. Instructional video for the Crusty Bread recipe. Crusty Bread 3 cups unbleached all purpose flour 1 3/4 teaspoons Kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon Instant or Rapid-rise yeast 1 1/2 cups water In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt and yeast. I must begin by saying where the recipe originated, if in fact it originated anywhere...really. Remember before beginning to create, that this bread is highly forgiving. You do NOT have to have an enamel covered cast iron pot. You DO NOT need to oil the pot. In a large mixing bowl add 3 cups white unbleached flour. To the flour add 1 3/4 teaspoon salt (I use kosher I like it) and 1/2 teaspoon rapid rise or instant yeast. Whisk the flour, salt and yeast together. Add 1 1/2 cups water. Mix in the water. That's it! Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it set for 12 - 18 hours on the counter top. After 12 hours the dough will look like this. Meet my blue Le Creuset. Now, please disregard that this dough has stuff in it.

recipe: sweet & sour chicken I was ridiculously excited when I came across this recipe for homemade sweet and sour chicken. You guys, it is SO GOOD. It’s a little involved with several steps (coating chicken, frying a little bit, then baking) but it is all worth it. Start with a plate of chicken breast, cut into chunks. Mix up your sauce: ketchup, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic powder. Dip the chicken into cornstarch and then in beaten egg. Transfer the chicken to a baking dish and coat all the pieces with the sauce. Bake that for about an hour, turning the pieces once or twice. Serve it all together and enjoy!

Caramel Brownie Cheesecake This is a monkeyhead concoction so please don’t be disappointed with me that it’s not 100% homemade. Sometimes as a mom you have to go with your childrens ideas in order to lift their creative wings. Monkey One loves cheesecake and caramel, Monkey Two has a passion for brownies you put the two of these knuckleheads together and look at what they come up with… Caramel Brownie Cheesecake. You gotta love the way these boys think. To see their vision come to fruition we used one of our favorite brownie mixes, a no bake white chocolate cheesecake recipe from Williams-Sonoma and we tried Jamie’s homemade caramel recipe from My Baking Addiction. M2 loves his brownie mix above because while I’m at work he can whip up a batch with my surfer and feel like he has stepped out of his sous chef role into the postion of head honcho. While the boys made the brownie mix I lined a springform pan with parchment paper. Once the brownie mix was in the oven we moved on to making Jamie’s caramel. Voila!
