PostHeaderIcon Keystone Quick Beef Mix-Up for Kids Sport Nights

Keystone Logo
I am always on the hunt for super fast things to make on the kid’s baseball game nights. As if having 4 sons isn’t crazy enough, add two sons that play baseball. This quite often makes for a tad of chaos when it comes to dinner time. I will admit, I am not the most organized person, but I am really trying. I am stepping up my game this year because quite frankly, the stress is just getting old. Like me!

Enter Keystone All-Natural Beef! I normally try not to use too much “canned food”, but Keystone is premium USDA beef that is hand-packed into a convenient can to make your recipe easier. Their all-natural beef has only two ingredients: beef and sea salt. Perfect for quick meals like stew, stir-fry and more! I also was very pleased when I checked out the label. Since Ales is a Type 1 Diabetic, I looked for the carb count. ZERO! Many “processed” types of meat have carbs. *thumbs up* for Natural and carb free!

Keystone Nutrition Label

This meal couldn’t have been any easier. The rice is actually what made it take longer. You could use premade mashed potatoes instead and that would cut the time down to probably 10 minutes. You can really add anything that you want to this. I am not a huge vegetable fan, so I kept it minimal. Patrick did add some sliced black olives to his when it had finished cooking. read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Recipe: Creamy Swiss Chicken

Disclosure: This is a NOT a sponsored post.

I have been trying out A LOT of new recipes lately. I am going to share ones that I think are very simple and delicious with you! I made this one the other night and the boys, normally picky like their mother, LOVED IT! I consider it a score for me! I am a big chicken eater and this is definitely on my top 5 chicken recipes. If you try this one, please come back and tell me what you thought!

Ingredients:

8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
8 slices Swiss Cheese
1 (10.5 oz) can Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 cup Dry White Wine
1 cup dry, seasoned stuffing mix or croutons, crushed
4 tbsp Butter, melted

Directions:

Preheat oven 350 and Grease a 9×13 casserole dish.
1. Place chicken in prepared dish and cover with cheese. I just sliced the cheese in half and used an entire slice on each piece of chicken. I also only made 6 pieces since there is only 3 of us. Recipe was still fine.

PostHeaderIcon Recipe: Sun-Bird General Tso’s Chicken

This is something that I normally eat when we go to our local Chinese buffet. Of course, it didn’t taste like it did at the restaurant… It was better! Please keep in mind when making this that it is a little spicy. I don’t like my food very spicy and this was just about my limit. Royal (9) was his usualy dramatic self stating that his mouth was on fire with each bite lol but Spencer (4) ate it right on down without one complaint. One drank milk and the other had water and there was no gulping it down because the chicken was to spicy.

For this recipe I actually used 2 packets of the Sun Bird General Tso’s Chicken Spice mix and doubled everything. One pound of chicken wouldn’t have been enough for us. The package I has was 2.7 pounds and this was still plenty of sauce for that! I also added a bit more water. Below are the package instructions and then how I made it.

You can buy this at just about any major food retailer in the Asian food section. All of my local stores carry it.

Ingredients (Package Directions))

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 packet Sun Bird General Tso’s Chicken Mic

(This was how I made it)

  • 1/2 cup and 1/8 cup flour
  • 2.5 – 3lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 5 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 3/4 cup water
  • 5 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 packets Sun Bird General Tso’s Chicken Mix

It’s easy to prepare General Tso’s Chicken with Sun-Bird seasonings. The spice and seasonings in the sauce will turn out perfectly every time. (Official Instructions are below the pictures) You can serve this with white rice. Since the boys aren’t big fans (and honestly I was out and didn’t realize it!) I made Chicken Rice-A-Roni with it and it went well together.

Directions:

  • Add flour to resealable plastic food bag.
  • Add chicken chunks and seal.
  • Shake bag to coat chicken evenly.
  • Combine seasoning, sugar, soy sauce and water; blend and set aside.
  • Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat until hot.
  • Add flour-coated chicken and cook until evenly browned. (Do not dump the bag in, you will end up with clumps of flour. Use a slotted spoon or tongs.)
  • Stir sauce mixture and add to skillet with chicken.
  • Bring sauce to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until desired consistency.

PostHeaderIcon Thursday Throwdown: Banana Bread #Recipe

Disclosure: No one asked me to write this post, no one paid me to write this post and no products were given to me in exchange for writing this post. All products were purchased by me for my own personal use. So stupid that I even have to write that! But, I still love my Kitchen Aid Mixer and all of my Wilton Bakeware! :P

This whole thing started with an old friend from High School, Val.  She gave a Banana Bread recipe to a mutual friend, John. He mentioned it to me and I asked him for it. While talking to my friend Charyl about my new recipe, she gets excited and starts telling me that she is ALSO making Banana Bread today! All of a sudden she is going on about having a Banana Bread Throwdown….. (Oh Bobby Baby!!) I am a cook! I am not a baker! That and I have never tried this recipe before. Maybe Val doesn’t know what good BB taste like! Charyl was so excited that I agreed. I will admit that at first I was not to excited about it because I had a million things going on but it became really fun. We talked trash on Twitter and Facebook a little bit. All of our kids got involved and we had a great time. I went over later to try hers and bring her family some of mine. I don’t think either was better than the other in my opinion. Both were equally good in different ways. (Oh come on! Mine was clearly the best!)

So here goes mine… Hop on over to Creepy with Their Cookies to check out Charyl’s Bread!

Ingredients:

5-6 really ripe bananas
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs, room temp.
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cup Flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cup chocolate chips (I didn’t put these in and recipe still worked great.)
———————————–

Preheat oven to 300 F. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans.I used a Wilton mini loaf pan. This took 50 minutes at 300.
In large bowl, mush peeled bananas with a hand mixer. Add butter, sugar, and eggs. Mix with hand mixer till combined, about a minute. Stir in vanilla.  In separate bowl, sift together flour, soda, and salt. Add this and chocolate chips to wet mixture and fold w/rubber spatula until combined. Divide equally between 2 loaf pans and bake for 1 hour.
