The best oatmeal recipe ever, nutella and fresh apples! Once you try it you will never go back to plain oatmeal again #nutella #Oatmeal #BreakfastRecipe #HealthA few months ago I was introduced to nutella, or course I have heard about it for years… but I had just never tried it.   I tasted it and OH MY WORD, this stuff is AMAZING!  In fact I said, WOW get me a spoon.

I try to eat oatmeal for breakfast because I know it if good for me, but I do not exactly look forward to it…… that is until I added apples and nutella. One morning I chopped up fresh apples, and added a drizzle of nutella it wasn’t just good, it was delicious!!! The tart crisp apple and the sweet creamy nutella are the perfect combo.

SO give it a try and see what you think…. I am pretty sure you will agree with me.  That is truly is THE BEST OATMEAL EVER!

All you need:

Oatmeal cooked according to package directions

Granny smith or Honey Crisp Apple cubed

Drizzle of nutella….. and a big spoon to eat it with!

How to make BAKED CHICKEN NUGGETS a health dinner your kids will eat right up, #Chicken, #Healthy, #Baked, #recipeBaked Chicken Nuggets ~ How to make in 30 minutes or less!

My kids all love chicken nuggets, they love to dip them, eat em and ask for more.  I on the other hand have a hard time with most brands of chicken nuggets… so instead we make our own.  They are whole pieces of chicken, moist, full of flavor and only take a few minutes to make.  Prep and cooking time, you can be done in less than 30 minutes! Once you make these your kids will never asked for the boxed nuggets again.

 

How to make BAKED CHICKEN NUGGETS a health dinner your kids will eat right up, #Chicken, #Healthy, #Baked, #recipe

You will need:

 

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 cups crushed corn flakes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ranch dressing mix (dry)
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 1 cube butter (melted)

 

 

How to make BAKED CHICKEN NUGGETS a health dinner your kids will eat right up, #Chicken, #Healthy, #Baked, #recipeCut your chicken breast in half (length wise) then cut into one inch cubes all the way down.  Three large chicken breast can be diced and ready to go in less than 60 seconds with this method.

How to make BAKED CHICKEN NUGGETS a health dinner your kids will eat right up, #Chicken, #Healthy, #Baked, #recipe Melt the cube of butter into a bowl and put cubed chicken into the butter.

In another bowl combine the crushed corn flakes, ranch dressing mix (dry) and parmesan cheese. Take the chicken cubes out of the butter and roll them into the corn flake mixture and set them on a baking sheet. If you like a thicker coating you can PRESS the chicken into to corn flakes and this will create a thicker crust.  Leave a little bit of room between the chicken for even cooking.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 16-18 minutes till chicken is cooked (cook to 170 degrees).  Enjoy!

How To Make Edible Playdough With Peeps ~ Fun DYI Kids Craft

Easter is over and I am ready to put the baskets away till next year, we have a few jelly beans left,  bits and pieces of a chocolate bunny and PEEPS.  They haven’t eaten them, yet they won’t let me toss them…. what is a Mom to do?  Well you can toss it all while the kids are at school, or you can do a fun DIY craft project with your kids instead, and make edible playdough.

To make these you will need:

  • 4 Peeps (or 4 large marshmallows)
  • 3/4 teaspoon water
  • 7-9 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • coconut oil or shortening

Edible playdough recipe made with PEEPS, Fun DIY projects to do with kids, Preschool party treat ideas, popular kids recipes, mutual night ideas

In a medium sized microwave safe bowl, add 4 peeps and 3/4 teaspoon water.  Place in the microwave for 30 seconds, they should have doubled in size. Stir till it looks like marshmallow cream,  if it is still lumpy put back in microwave for 10 seconds more at a time. But normally 30 seconds does the trick. You can now start mixing in the powered sugar, I mix it in 1 tablespoon at a time. Once it forms a soft ball take it out and kneed in the rest of the powdered sugar. But before you take it out coat your hands with coconut oil or shortening so it will not stick to your hands.  Dust your counter with powdered sugar to keep it from sticking to the counter.

The whole process only takes about 5 minutes. It will form a soft dough that is fun for kids to play with, and is totally edible too! It is full to roll out and cut shapes out with small cookie cutters. This recipe forms a ball of dough about the size of a lime, perfect for one child to play with.  You can double the recipe but will just need to adjusting the microwave time, but make sure you only cook it in short segments or you will scorch or burn them.

Heat a large skillet to medium high heat, brown the pork chops on  each side for about 1 minute.   TIP ~ I normally scrap off the onions while I brown the pork chops.. them add them back on top before I bake them in the oven.

Take off the stove top and finish cooking on the skillet in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.  Till pork is at least 145 degrees in the middle. I love my meat thermometer  for cooking pork, helps me know I cooked it enough before it get to over cooked and though.
