New Recipes

I am always saving recipes that I want to try, but somehow never get around to actually trying them. Well, I finally tried out not one, but three new recipes! And, all three of them were keepers!

I found all of these on Pinterest.

The first one was called Hootenanny. It bubbles up in the strangest way, but it is so easy! I thought that for the small amount of effort it took to make it, it tasted plenty good! I timed myself, and it literally took only 5 minutes to get this into the oven. It's a perfect breakfast on a busy morning.

Blend up 1 c. white flour, 1 c. milk, 6 eggs, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Pour batter into greased 9x13 pan. Then, pour 1/2 cube melted butter over the top (do not mix). Bake for 25 minutes at 400 degrees. Cut in pieces, drizzle with Maple Syrup, serve.

Then I tried this BLT Pasta Salad. It was a big hit! So, so good!
Last night I made this Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid. I actually made my own crescent dough for this. If you already have chicken cooked up (which I usually do) and if you keep bread dough in the freezer (which I aspire to do, :) it's really quick and easy.

What new recipes have you gotten around to trying lately?

5 Steps to Follow When You're Overwhelmed with the Housework

1. Put one thing away.
2. Put another thing away.
3. Put another thing away.
4. Put another thing away.
5. Put another thing away.

Profound, huh? Yet this is what I do when I feel like the house is getting out of control. By putting just 5 things away, I am amazed at how much better that kitchen counter looks, and I'm then ready to "just finish cleaning this one counter". But then that counter looks so good, I want the opposite counter to match, and it only takes a few minutes. I start getting on a roll, and before I know it, quite a bit has gotten done. It doesn't take long for me to realize things weren't as bad as I thought.

Try it next time you think the house is hopelessly messy!
