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. Trust me. Start with a plate of chicken breast, cut into chunks. Sprinkle on some salt and pepper. 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! Sweet and Sour ChickenIngredients 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts Salt and pepper 1 cup cornstarch 2 eggs, beaten 1/4 cup canola oilFor the sauce (1 batch) 2/3 cup sugar 1/2 cup ketchup 1 cup vinegar 2 tablespoon soy sauce 1 teaspoon garlic powderPreparation Cut boneless chicken breasts into chunks, season with salt and pepper.

If you don’t like hot, leave out the jalapenos or skimp a bit.

Cheesy Florentine Biscuit Cups March 22, 2011 1:37 pm · Posted by Lauren G I looove refrigerated Pillsbury biscuits, mostly because I like popping open the can, but they're also delicious and easy to make.

I had most of the ingredients on hand (with a few substitutions) so I chose this one.

You gotta love the way these boys think.

Broccoli Bites for Kids File this under the Onion Soup Mix Recipe category, though there is no Lipton onion soup mix in site. I may even serve these at my next dinner party, they were that good! While babysitting for my 6 year old picky eater niece, I had to come up with a good lunch that would be fun for the two of us to make together.

I made these last week and it confirmed my feelings: I am in love with these cinnamon rolls.
