Simple chicken cheesesteaks

This is too easy not to share. For this you will need sub rolls, a store bought rotisserie chicken, cheese, and toppings….that’s it. So simple and fast, this is a winner. For a week night meal.

Get your rotisserie chicken already cooked from your local grocery but trust me, let it cool

Pull the meat off of the carcass and throw it right in the mixer, yep…your mixer will shred the chicken beautifully (if you don’t have a stand mixer, throw it in a bowl and use a hand mixer it works just as good). Turn the mixer on medium for less than a minute and this is what you get

image

Load the meat on the bun and top with cheese

image

Toss it in a 400 degree oven for just about 3 minutes and dinner is served

Love these and they are a crowd pleaser, the hubby loves them, the kids love them and I love them. Winner winner chicken dinner 🙂

Soft and chewy sugar cookies

I have always stayed away from sugar cookies. I have tried to make them once or twice and they turned out hard and tasteless, until this past holiday season. I am telling you, sav this recipe, make it anytime of year. If you like your sugar cookies full, soft and chewy then this is the recipe for you. I added christmas colored sugar to mine but of course you can do whatever you want.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

1½ cups granulated sugar

1 egg

2¼ cups all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon Kosher salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

¼ cup granulated sugar for rolling cookies

Preheat oven to 350º F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.

Cream together butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and mix until well-combined.

Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla.

Scoop cookie dough by the tablespoon full and roll into a ball.

Add granulated sugar to a large bowl for rolling cookie dough in before baking. Place each ball of cookie dough into the bowl of granulated sugar and roll to coat well. Place cookie dough onto baking sheet, spacing about 1½-inches to 2 inches apart. Lightly press each cookie down. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Banana Quesadillas

Just a little something to share today!

Ingredients:
4 bananas
4 oz.  of chocolate chips
2 tbsps of butter
3 tbsps  and 2 tsps of cinnamon
1/4 c. of sugar20130429_214426
6 ( 8″) tortilla shells
2 tbsps of brown sugar

Slice bananas and place in a bowl.  Add 2 tbsps of brown sugar and 2 tsps of cinnamon. Mix, cover, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Mix 3 tbsps of cinnamon and 1/4c. sugar together in a small bowl. Melt 2 tbsps of butter and brush on the top of tortilla shells, then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Place your tortilla shell with cinnamon side down. Add your bananas in the center, sprinkle a handful of chocolate chips over your bananas and then place another tortilla shell on top. Cook until chocolate is melted.

I used my Quesadilla maker, but a frying pan can be used. And in one of my quesadillas I added peanut butter on it, because I love peanut butter and bananas together.
