Recipe: Cinnamon Biscuit Balls


With three busy girls and a busy family life, I am always looking for quick recipes that I can make to change up our snacks and breakfasts.  My girls love to eat muffins and biscuits so I when I came across this recipe on Karly's blog, Buns in My Oven, I thought it would be a great alternative...and it was!  Not only was it delicious but it was super easy to make because it is made with a baking mix and only required a few ingredients.  My girls loved them and I was happy to have a homemade treat to put in their lunches.  Next time I make them, I will try dipping them in caramel sauce as Karly suggests.

Enjoy!

Cinnamon Biscuit Balls
(original recipe by Karly/Buns in My Oven)
{print}

Ingredients
2 1/3 cups baking mix (ie Biquick)
1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp melted butter
4 tbsp sugar, divided
1 tsp cinnamon

Directions
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Mix half of the sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl.  Mix remaining ingredients together until a soft dough forms.  Scoop dough by tablespoons and roll into a ball.  Roll each ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and place on a greased baking sheet.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.

NOTE:  You can mix the dough with a mixer, but I mixed mine by hand and found the dough to be really easy to mix.

Recipe: Navajo Tacos


In our house, we love most things Tex-Mex. Okay, the truth is, I love most things Tex-Mex and since I do all the cooking around here, we eat a lot of it.  It's one of the perks of being the cook!  I have been trying to add more vegetarian dishes to our weekly menu and I have to say this was a huge hit with the family...especially since my girls don't love traditional tacos.  I made these a couple of weeks ago, but was reminded of them when The Pioneer Woman posted her fry bread recipe.  While I didn't use her recipe for the bread, I might give it a try the next time I make these.  I have a recipe that I have been using for awhile now.  It is super simple, doesn't use milk and taste delicious (especially when covered with beans, lettuce, cheese, etc.)  I don't usually make our tacos with meat.  I make mine with my Crock Pot Pintos, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and lots of salsa verde (as seen in the above picture...lol.) but it would be just as delicious with beef or chicken as well. 

Navajo Tacos

Ingredients
1 cup AP flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon powdered milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup water
Vegetable oil for frying

pinto beans
taco meat
lettuce
tomatoes
shredded cheese
salsa
sour cream

Directions
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, powdered milk and baking powder. Pour the water over the flour mixture all at once and stir the dough with a fork until it starts to form one big clump. Flour your hands and begin to mix the dough, trying to get all the flour into the mixture to form a ball. Don't knead the dough, just mix it well.  Cut the dough into four pieces. Using your floured hands, shape, stretch, pat, and form a disk of about 5 to 7 inches in diameter.  They don't need to be perfectly round by any means.


Heat the vegetable oil to about 350 degrees. Your oil should be about an inch deep in a large cast-iron skillet or other large frying pan. 



Take the formed dough and gently place it into the oil, being careful not to splatter the hot oil. Press down on the dough as it fries so the top is submersed into the hot oil. Fry until brown, and then flip to fry the other side. Each side will take about 3 to 4 minutes.

To assemble the tacos, start with a fry bread then layer on your toppings; pinto beans, meat, lettuce, tomatoes, shredded cheese, salsa, sour cream...whatever you would like.


Enjoy!

Recipe: Mandarin Orange Muffins

 
My family loves muffins of all kinds.  One of our favorites is Monkey Muffins.  They are so good and nutritious when made with whole wheat flour.  As much as I love them, I was looking for something new and exciting to try.  I came across this recipe and was intrigued because my kids love mandarin oranges.  These muffins are super easy because they are made with a baking mix.  They are so soft and tender and the cinnamon sugar topping is a nice compliment to the oranges.  My kids and their friends devoured them in no time flat, especially my Abby.  She has asked me to make them again almost every day now.  They are her new favorite.  While they are not quite as healthy as our Monkey Muffins, they are very good and I might try to make them with a whole grain baking mix next time.


Enjoy! 

Mandarin Orange Muffins
(original recipe by Talking Dollar and Cents)
{print} 

Muffin
11/2 cups baking mix
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 11-oz can of mandarin oranges, drained and diced

Topping
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat muffin tins with non-stick spray.  To make the batter:  Combine baking mix, sugar, nutmeg and allspice in a large bowl.  In another smaller bowl, stir egg, butter, milk and mandarin oranges together. Stir the liquid ingredients into dry ingredients until just mixed.  Over mixing the batter will result in a tougher muffin.  Spoon batter into muffin tins filling each tin 3/4 full and making sure orange bits are evenly distributed.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  To make the topping: Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.  While muffins are still warm, brush the tops with the melted butter butter and sprinkle the sugar-cinnamon mixture across the top of the muffins.

Recipe: Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls




Don't you just love this time of year?  The cooler nights, the changing colors of the leaves, apples, cinnamon, sweaters and soups.  Fall just cannot be beat!  I was so excited to be invited to join other bloggers by Sheryl at Lady Behind the Curtain for her Improv Challenge.  This month's challenge is caramel and apples and I knew the recipe that I wanted to make.  

When I came across this recipe on Amanda's blog, Fake Ginger.  All I have to say about these delightfully good rolls is....YUM!  I loved the caramel apple filling. You have to give these a try they are worth the extra effort of cooking the apples and sugar.  I also made these easier by making the dough in my bread maker. I frosted my cinnamon rolls with a thicker more gooey frosting because I figure if you are going to be sinful you might as well go all out but the next time that I make these, I will use the glaze.

Enjoy!

Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls 
(adapted from the original recipe by Amanda/Fake Ginger)
{print}

Ingredients

For the cinnamon rolls: 
6 tbsp sugar 
1 tsp salt 
1 tsp ground cinnamon 
5 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 large egg, slightly beaten
3 1/2 cups bread flour 
2 tsp instant (rapid rise) yeast 
1 cup plus 2-4 tablespoon whole milk or buttermilk, at room temperature

For the filling: 
1 tbsp unsalted butter
3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into ¼" slices
1/4 cup sugar 
1/2 tsp cornstarch 
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon 
pinch ground nutmeg 
pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp plus 1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon 

For the frosting: 
4 ounces cream cheese, softened 
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
6 tbsp caramel sauce
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 to 2 cup confectioners’ sugar


Instructions

Add the roll ingredients in your bread maker pan as directed by your manufacturer.  Set up dough cycle and start. Meanwhile, make the filling. To make the caramelized apples, melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apple slices, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix until the apples are evenly coated. Cook about 18 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Set aside to cool.






In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon to blend; set aside.


Lightly flour a work surface and roll the dough out into a rectangle with a rolling pin, lightly dusting the dough with flour if needed to keep it from sticking (about 12 x 14 inches for larger rolls or 9 x 18 inches for smaller rolls). Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the surface of the dough. Evenly distribute the caramelized apples over the top of the dough. Starting with the wide edge, roll up the dough into a cigar-shaped log. Pinch the seam shut, and with the seam side down, slice the log into your desired number of rolls. Transfer them to a baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray, spacing them about 1/2" apart.  Place in the oven and let rise about 75-90 minutes, until the rolls have grown into each other and have nearly doubled in size.






Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool in the baking about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.


To make the frosting, cream together the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Mix in the caramel sauce and vanilla extract. Add confectioners’ sugar starting with 1 1/2 cups.  Add more if needed to reach a thicker frosting and until smooth. Gently frost the rolls. Let cool at least 15-20 minutes before serving.






NOTEThese rolls can be made a couple of days in advance and kept in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake them off.  Just follow the instructions upon until they have been sliced and put in the pan.  Cover them loosely with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Pull the pan out of the refrigerator 3-4 hours before baking to let the dough proof.  Once the dough has proofed and has doubled in size, follow the baking and glazing directions.

Family: Cheerleading Camp, Pep Rally and Football Game

I gotta tell you...small town life is awesome!  My girls attend school in our small southern town where high school football is a community event...we're talking Friday Night Lights here.

The girls get to go to the weekly pep rallies during football season because our school combines elementary, junior high and high school all on one property.  Of course our boys in the school grow up playing football and all our girls grow up cheer leading.  That's just the way it it is and it's a big deal!

(The girls after camp posing with our mascot statue.)

Every year our varsity high school cheerleaders have a cheer leading day camp for our elementary girls.  They get a t-shirt, a picture with the cheerleaders and for three and half hours they get to learn cheers and a dance routine.  After camp, they get to perform during the pep rally and during the first quarter of the football game.  This is little girl cheer leading heaven!  

Go Cougars!

Recipe: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Cookies




This month, I am participating in Mom's Crazy Cooking Challenge.  Every month there is a new theme challenge.  The great thing about this challenge is that you choose a specific recipe from another blogger.  You then bake and blog the recipe showcasing the blog that you selected the recipe from.  You also get to vote on the best "ultimate" recipe for the month.  The challenge this month is chocolate chip cookies. 

The recipe that I selected is White Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies from How Sweet Eats.  Jessica has so many fantastic chocolate chip cookie recipes that it was hard to pick just one, but I forced myself to.  Her recipe and pictures made me drool at my keyboard.  Now, I am sure you are asking yourself the obvious question.  How did I end up with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Cookies?  Well, I thought I had all the ingredients but I obviously did not.  But, that is the beauty about this recipe.  The basic ingredients and technique make this cookie so soft, moist and delicious that you could make substitutions and still get an awesome cookie!  I have never baked a cookie where you melt the butter with peanut butter, but from here on out, I will.  Melting the peanut butter gave it such a sutle nutty flavor and it helped keep the cookie moist and chewy. 

I will be making her original recipe soon because it sounds so unbelievable tasty, but I think milk chocolate and peanut butter chips would be outstanding as well.  Like I said, limitless possibilities!

Thanks to Jessica at How Sweet It Is for sharing this awesome cookie recipe.  Don't forget to stop by Mom's Crazy Cooking and vote for the ultimate chocolate chip cookie.



Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Butterscotch Cookies
(adapted from the original recipe of How Sweet Eats)

2 1/4 cups AP flour
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted and cooled
6 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, melted and cooled
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate morsels/chunks
1/2 cup butterscotch morsels

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Add butter and peanut butter to a microwave safe bowl, and heat in 30 second increments until melted. Let cool completely.

Mix the flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl, mix the cooled butter/peanut butter and sugars until they are combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and stir until mixed. Gradually add dry ingredients and mix until a dough forms – it will be crumbly at first, but it will come together. If necessary, add 1-2 teaspoons of milk. Fold in white chocolate and peanut butter chips.


Using an ice cream scoop, mound dough on baking pan about two inches apart.  Flatten the dough just slightly.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown. The centers should be soft and slightly puffy. Do not over bake. Let cool completely.

Recipe: Bacon and Cheese Muffins



My family loves muffins!  Pancakes and muffins...two of my kids favorite things.  We definitely have our tried and true favorite recipes for both, but we are like to experiment.  Okay, I like to experiment and my family reaps the rewards.  I have been looking for some new muffin recipes to give a try and hopped over to one of my favorite blogs, Mommy's Kitchen.  I absolutely love Tina's blog and have enjoyed many a great meal from her shared recipes.  And, bonus, like me she lives in Texas not too far from where I live (which would be the middle of nowhere, but I LOVE it!).  As I was perusing, I came across this recipe for Bacon and Cheese muffins.  It has our family's favorite two food groups...bacon and cheese.  I knew that my kids, and husband, would gobble these up in no time.  They did and loved it!

These muffins are tender and delicious!  I know they would be perfect to freeze and pull out on those morning when we are rushed.  Mine never made it to the freezer because they were immediately enjoyed!


Bacon and Cheese Muffins
(recipe by Tina/Mommy's Kitchen)

2 cups AP flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 1/4 cup.milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted and cooled
1 egg
1/2 lb bacon, diced, cooked and degreased
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. In a small bowl, mix together the milk, melted butter or margarine and eggs. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Fold in the bacon and cheese just until combined. Scoop into greased or lined muffin tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until lightly golden brown.

Enjoy!
