Mini Chicken Pot Pies YUMMY

My husband loves to cook and he got one of my cookbooks out and we found some recipes we want to try this week.

We started out with theses chicken pot pies.

Very easy to make.

What's great about this cookbook is that there are only a few ingredients for each dish. I buy boneless chicken breasts when they are on sale and cook up 5-6 packages at once. I cut the chicken up in small pieces and put them in baggies. When I find a chicken recipe I just pull out a bag and thaw. Cuts the cooking time in half. I do it for hamburger too. Click on photo to see recipe.

They turned out very yummy!

 This recipe would be great for left overs.

Chocolate Cheesecake Dip

It wasn't until I put this into a to go container that I thought about taking a picture and sharing the recipe on our blog. I was about to leave for a get together that I had brought this to before and was asked to make it again. It's fast, easy, and really good. Everyone wanted the recipe.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip
16 oz. cream cheese- softened
1c. butter- softened
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
4T. brown sugar
1tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips
1 1/2c. finely chopped pecans (optional)
Crackers-Chocolate Grahams 

Beat cream cheese, butter, add sugars and vanilla. Stir in chips and nuts. Chill 2 hrs. Can also be shaped into a ball and rolled in nuts.
I skip the nuts because my kids don't care for them. Enjoy.

I Just LOVE My New "Candles"

If you haven't see these candles I am telling you that you will LOVE them.

They are great if you love the glow of a candle but are afraid of lighting them with children or pets around.

These are not "real" candles but they look just like them.

You don't have to worry about your children getting burnt or your pet starting a fire.

They look and glow just like a real candle.

What is really great about these is that you can put them about anywhere. I was going to have my hubby put a whole in this cabinet so I could put a lamp in here and plug it in to have some light but then twin found these candles at Farm and Fleet. There are other places that sell candles like these but what makes these so special is...

they come with a remote. Some of the other candles have on-off switches and if you have them up above your cabinet or somewhere high who wants to have to get a chair to turn them on and off? This little baby does all the work for you. These came in a 3 pack. Twin got hers on sale for $18 but when I got mine I had to pay full price $25. You can get 2 larger ones for the same price which I might go back and get. Did I tell you how much I LOVE my new candles!!
