New page. New ideas.


You're in for a treat.

New page. New ideas.


I will slowly be transitioning this page over to a new one that allows me to customize a little more.

But, for now I will be double blogging, until I feel that the transition is complete.

So please join US at NeverBashfulWithButter.

I will be bringing along a new blogger, Tiffany Boles, owner of TheCraftyPie.



Creamy Chicken Casserole

Creamy Chicken Casserole

This was a dish that I first had the pleasure of digging into at a potluck.
The original Chicken Casserole recipe was simple....

  • Ritz Crackers
  • Cream of Chicken soup
  • Chicken

I am a very "make a recipe your own" kind of person and feel that you can tweak almost anything to your particular taste.

So, here's the new version I came up with.

Ingredients:
  • 1 box of Garlic Butter Ritz Crackers, crushed
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 can of whole kernel white corn
  • 1 can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 8 oz of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 8 oz Sour Cream
  • 2 Cups of shredded Sharp Cheddar
Directions:
  1. Chop chicken breast into bite size pieces. Season as you wish (I really like to throw some rosemary in this dish). Cook thoroughly.
  2. Mix cracker crumbs and melted butter together.
  3. Arrange chicken breast pieces in a 9x13 baking dish.
  4. In a separate baking dish, mix white corn, cream of mushroom soup, softened cream cheese, cheddar and sour cream. Combine thoroughly.
  5. Spread mixture over chicken.
  6. Top with ritz cracker mixture.
  7. Bake at 400* for 30 minutes or until bubbly and crackers are golden brown.
  8. ENJOY!

BLT Bites

BLT Bites

First off, I'm not good with measurements when cooking. If it looks like enough...I add more. I will do my best to create this recipe with just right proportions. But, nonetheless, these little things called BLT Bites are amazing! I had them first at a bridal shower and then again at a summer BBQ. Here's my twist on the bite-sized pieces of goodness.

Ingredients:
1 Cup of Real Mayo (not Miracle Whip)
1 Package of real bacon bits (the soft ones)
1 Pint of Cherry/Grape tomatoes
1 Box of those woven wheat crackers (I love the new flavored varieties from Triscut


Directions:

In a bowl combine and mix mayo and bacon bits. You can also mix in some herbs and seasonings here. Ex: Rosemary, chives, pepper, garlic....But not too much!

Cut your tomatoes in halves. Then lay out your cracker.

Now it's time to assemble!!!

Top crackers with mayo mixture and top with the tomato half! That's it! Seriously!

Enjoy all the goodness, but try to save some for the others....
