Chicken Chili

Chicken Chili

I’ve had chicken chili before, but was always too intimidated because I thought it was really difficult to make. That was before I tried THIS recipe. Easy and YUMMY!


2 (24 oz) jars great northern beans (undrained)

Meat from 1 rotisserie chicken

1 (16 oz) jar Pace Picante (your preferred heat)

8 ounces Monterey jack pepper cheese (shredded if you can find it)


Tortilla chips (optional)

Sour Cream (optional)

Put the ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 4 hours. Stir every 1/2 hour if possible.


Serve with tortilla chips and a dollop of sour cream.



The Advantium Oven from Gerrit’s Appliance is so great! I love mine!

Back To School Breakfast

Back To School Breakfast


Here’s a GREAT and EASY recipe to serve on the first day of school. (it’s healthy, too…but no one needs to tell the kids!)


1 chocolate cake mix

15 oz can of pumpkin

Half a bag of chocolate chips

Walking S’mores

Walking S’mores


Some people call these “Campfire Cones” but we do them on a grill so I call them Walking S’mores. I’m actually not a HUGE fan of S’mores because they’re SO messy and usually there’s SO much more marshmallow than chocolate, right? So when I saw these, I just HAD to try them. And I’m SO glad I did. They’re FANTASTIC! Less mess and very individual! Try this fun twist to the traditional S’more this Holiday weekend and EVERY weekend! They can be made on the grill, campfire, or even in the oven.


Waffle Ice Cream Cones

Topping Ideas: Marshmallows, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Kisses, Rolos, Butterscotch Chips, Chocolate Chips, Bananas, Raspberries, Strawberries, Pineapple, Chopped nuts, Rice Krispies, etc.

Fill a cone with desired amounts of marshmallow and toppings. (less than you think, probably) Wrap each cone with foil. Place over the campfire for about 5-7 minutes, on a heated grill for 6-8 minutes, or in the oven at 375 degrees for about 7-8 minutes until toppings are melted. Then just enjoy the taste of summer…a “Walking S’more” kinda! ha-ha.



Crock-Pot Monkey Bread

Crock-Pot Monkey Bread



It’s CROCK-tober. When I saw this recipe, I just HAD to try it! Who doesn’t love warm, gooey, cinnamon-y goodness?


1 container Grands Original Biscuits

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon

1 stick Butter, melted

Optional: Cream Cheese frosting


Spray inside of crock-pot with non-stick cooking spray

Melt butter in microwave safe bowl, and set aside.

Combine sugars and cinnamon in gallon size bag, zip up and shake well to mix.  Set aside.

Cut each biscuit into 6 pieces.

Take each piece one by one and dip into melted butter, then put into cinnamon sugar mixture bag. Once all pieces have been added to bag, zip up and carefully shake and gently roll around so all pieces get coated.

Pour any remaining leftover butter into bottom of crock-pot.

Transfer all sugar coated biscuit pieces into crock-pot, and spread out along the bottom.

Cook on LOW for 2.5 hours, or until done.

Optional: top with a little cream cheese frosting. (not really optional in our opinion)

Window Cleaning

You’ve probably seen your grandparents use newspaper to clean mirrors and glass and wondered if what if this cleaning myth actually works. Well, yes, and no. Yes, because newspaper at one time was made of out papers and ink that did indeed leave mirrors and glasses streak-free. Sadly, newspaper today is made out of completely different materials than way back then that actually leave streaks on your mirrors. Trying using rubbing alcohol or a glass cleaner with a microfiber cloth. These eight tricks will leave your windows looking spotless and smudge-free.
