Pink Ribbon Cinnamon Rolls For National Breast Cancer Awareness Month - love from the oven With the arrival of October, we also have the arrival of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I usually try to come up with a few unique treats to help my friend Jen with her Breast Cancer Awareness fundraising she always does. It’s far more personal for her this year, as her mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. In addition to that, a friend of mine was also diagnosed this year. It’s certainly brought it all very close to home. So in trying to come up with something creative for fundraising and awareness, I thought why not make cinnamon rolls… PINK. Not only could these be a great option for an early morning bake sale fundraiser, but also a great treat for so many of those who will be up early and walking in fundraisers this month. I made these the same way I make all of my cake mix cinnamon rolls but with two changes. The color was a nice bright pink. Ah. I was happy that they maintained their color while baking.

What can be more kid friendly than chicken nuggets, even the pickiest kids like them. Kids love finger foods or anything you can eat with toothpicks so when my daughter was young I would make her a dish of bite sized goodies she liked such as tomatoes, olives, pasta, etc. and served them with toothpicks and she always cleaned her plate! Once I'm in breading mode I usually make breaded zucchini sticks as well and bake them all at the same time along with some pasta and a salad for a complete meal. Double these for more or make half for less servings.

Mexican Rice Mexican (or Spanish) rice at its base is onions, garlic and rice that is cooked in chicken stock and tomato sauce. It is great just like that but you can change it up by adding extras if you want. I like to add things like green or red peppers or beans. If what I am serving the rice with is hot and spicy I tend to leave it at that and enjoy the rice as a welcome relief from the spiciness of the main dish. If the main dish is not too spicy then I like to add more heat and spices such as chilies, chili powder, cumin, etc. to the rice to add some more kick and flavor to the overall meal. Ingredients: 1 tablespoon oil 1 onion (chopped) 1 clove garlic (chopped) 1 green pepper (chopped) 1 jalapeno pepper (chopped) 1 cup long grained rice (I used brown long grained rice) 1 1/2 cups chicken stock 2 cups diced tomatoes with liquid 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon salt Directions: 1.
Planet/Star Size - Our Solar System & The Other Stars Three Cheese Baked Rigatoni Recipe Three Cheese Baked Rigatoni with chicken and mushrooms is deliciously cheesy and baked until golden and bubbly. An easy recipe that promises to satisfy! One of my favorite go-to quick and easy dinner ideas during the week is baked pasta. It’s a little more exciting than plain ole’ spaghetti and there are so many ways that you can change it up from making it with chicken, ground beef or sausage to adding in a variety of veggies like mushrooms, spinach and broccoli. You can also experiment with the cheeses and it’s hard to go wrong! Today I’m sharing my latest recipe for Three Cheese Baked Rigatoni with chicken and mushrooms and it’s deliciously cheesy! One of the great things about this recipe is that if you have a skillet that is safe for the oven (like this one), you will only need two pans – one for the pasta and one for the sauce. I used some leftover grilled chicken in this recipe. We LOVED the mushrooms in this recipe but go ahead and leave them out if you don’t like mushrooms.
Mom's Spanish Chicken and Rice Chicken and rice, otherwise known as arroz con pollo is a delicious one pot meal the whole family will love. Arroz con pollo can be made so many different ways and also varies from country to country. In fact, I don't use a recipe when I make this, I just use whatever I have on hand so it may never turn out the same twice. Mom makes her arroz con pollo with beer, green olives along with some of the brine for more flavor and she adds frozen mixed vegetables to it. Some of my Latin recipes you'll see "sazon" listed in the ingredients. It's perfectly fine to use the chicken on the bone, and yes, you can use white meat if you prefer however, I personally find white meat too dry in this dish for my taste.

Slow Cooker Taco Soup - Mommy Hates Cooking Slow Cooker Taco Soup Disclosure: I am taking part of the Cans Get You Cooking Canbassador Program, and this is a sponsored post. All thoughts, opinions, and recipe are my own. It’s September! What does that mean? Before we get to all that pumpkin, I wanted to share one of my favorite soups that we make frequently during the fall and winter months, Slow Cooker Taco Soup. This soup is so simple using several canned ingredients, which makes it very frugal too! This time I decided to try the Del Monte Canned Corn instead of my typically frozen corn. We like to serve ours with corn chips; however, my friend mentioned how good Doritos are with this. Typically when I make this there should be enough for leftovers between my husband and I, but we are lucky to have leftovers! Ingredients: Toppings: Fritos/DoritosShredded Mexican Style Cheese Directions: Note: I do not drain the canned goods when I make this; however, you can if you prefer. Happy Almost Fall!
