Crockpot Cube Steak and Gravy » The Post-It Place There are several meats that you can always find either on sale or marked down. That is chicken (either in drumsticks, quarters or thighs) and cube steak. The thing with cube steak is that it can be pretty tough. I make it several different ways but this is our all-time favorite. Crockpot Cube Steak and Gravy Cube steak (I used a family size pack) 2 cans (10.75 ounce size) cream of mushroom soup 1 envelope onion soup mix 3/4 cup water Salt and Pepper to taste Directions: Place all ingredients in a crock pot.

Just don’t tell my Momma, she would have a hissie fit just thinking of me sopping something up on my plate and would berate me from here to yonder knowing I said it was ok for you to as well.

Soft & Chewy Sugar-Free Baked Granola Bars January 8, 2014Angela (Oh She Glows) The alternate title for these bars was: ultra dense, doughy, chewy, soft, seedy, hearty, protein-and-fibre-packed granola bars, sweetened naturally with dates! I can be a bit wordy at times. Anyway, these are not your average granola bars! Bursting with chia, sunflower, and pepita seeds, they pack a hefty amount of protein, fibre, and omega fatty acids and are naturally sweetened with date paste (a simple blend of water and pitted dates) instead of sugar. I like to think of these as an “adult” granola bar or a muesli breakfast bar of sorts, although I could also see my hockey-loving nephews enjoying these as fuel for the game. I didn’t feel like calling them “chia bread” though due to the sweetness; granola bars just seemed to make more sense in my brain. Yield10-12 bars Prep Time Cook time Total Time Ingredients: Directions: Preheat oven to 325F and line a 9-inch square pan with two pieces of parchment paper, one going each way.

Carnation Café Closes Thursday for Renovations at Disneyland Park A Disneyland park favorite will close its doors this week – but only until summer, when Carnation Café will re-open with more seating (adding the indoor seating that disappeared in the 1990s) and a spruced-up menu. And no worries – if you’re looking for cast member favorite Oscar Martinez, you’ll find him over at the Jolly Holiday Bakery Café opening this month, but only until Carnation Café re-opens. Then you’ll find Oscar back at Carnation Café. When Carnation Café re-opens, look for breakfast, lunch and dinner favorites, along with new dishes and some Walt Disney favorites. So, ‘til the doors open this summer, here’s the recipe for the decadent Loaded Baked Potato Soup just in case you have a hankering. Loaded Baked Potato Soup Serves 6 In a 6- to 8-quart stockpot over medium heat, fry bacon until crisp.Remove bacon and drain on paper towels, reserving half for garnish.

Tropical Chewy Granola Bars Returning home from such an epic holiday, sitting here at my desk in my apartment feeling a million miles away from anything tropical, there is a part of me that wants to say I’m getting “back to reality”. But that would be inaccurate, as I believe that the island of Kauai was absolutely the realest place I’ve ever been. What do I mean by this? Well, I have never in my life been faced with more awe-inspiring nature, powerful energies, provocative weather, and life-challenging situations. It was the biggest dose of reality I could have gotten, anywhere. I think the thing that struck me as soon as we left the airport was how low-key the island seemed. The first week of our trip, we were staying on the north side of the island, which during the winter and spring seasons receives a lot of rain. We eventually found ourselves on the western side of the island trying to find some dry land and sunshine. But this is beginning to sound a bit complain-y, while I was actually having a total blast.

Texas Roadhouse Rolls Whoever created the roll recipe at Texas Roadhouse is a genius and whoever decided to give them to guests as a "complimentary appetizer" is a genius. What is the first thing you hear from people when they talk about Texas Roadhouse? I hear "I love their rolls," I have never heard anyone start out by saying "I love their pulled pork sandwich," have you? Don't get me wrong, they have really good food too, but their rolls are unbeatable. I found this copycat recipe floating around the blog world and I couldn't wait to give them a try. Well, the moment you have been waiting for . . . . Texas Roadhouse Rolls - Copycat Recipe 4 tsp. active dry yeast 1/2 c. warm water 2 c. milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm 3 Tbl. of melted butter, slightly cooled 1/2 c. sugar 2 quarts all purpose flour (7-8 cups) 2 whole eggs 2 tsp. salt Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar; let stand until frothy. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.

No-Bake Almond Joy Granola Bars May 23, 2014Angela (Oh She Glows) It appears I’m on a granola bar kick this week. and I can’t be stopped. But I didn’t think you’d mind too much? Experimenting with granola bar recipes (and flavours) is one of my favourite things to do. Much like my Feel Good Hearty Granola Bars, these bars are also lower in sugar than most (5.8 grams per bar). The only caveat with this recipe is that the bars don’t hold together perfectly, so I recommend storing them in the fridge and not letting them sit at room temperature. Oh and for the record, I did try baking a batch in the oven for curiosity’s sake and the no-bake version won by a landslide. Like most granola bar recipes, this one is versatile so be sure to let me know what flavours you come up with in the comment section. Yield14 small bars Freeze time10 minutes Prep Time Cook time0 Minutes Total Time Ingredients: Directions: Line an 8-inch or 9-inch square pan with two pieces of parchment paper, one going each way so it's easy to lift out.

Mississippi Sin It's Football Friday! The college football regular season is winding down; only one more week to go. We move on to Championship Week and bowl games. I am looking forward to both! We had this dip at our tailgate last weekend. I have no idea why this is called Mississippi Sin (there are so many jokes that could be inserted here), but we'll just go with it. This is a great tailgate dip because it is great hot and still really good cold (after the game). This is a keeper.
