Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Every once and a while I will try and be domesticated and cook my man dinner. Most of the time we cook together. It’s one of my favorite past times with him. We normally play music, sing and cook. It’s a ton of fun. Anyways….like I was saying….. Sometimes I like to surprise B with a good comfort meal after a long day.

Here is what I came up with yesterday:

Mini Chicken Pot Pies:

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Flaky layers biscuits (If you’re watching your waist line, get the reduced fat)
  • 2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 can of condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup of diced chicken
  • A little bit of shredded cheddar cheese

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Preheat the oven to 375
  •  Cook the chicken and mix in a medium bowl with vegetables, and soup.
  • Press each biscuit into 5 1/2-inch round. Place 1 round in each of 8 greased regular-size muffin cups. Firmly press in bottom and up side, forming 3/4-inch rim. Spoon a generous 1/3 cup chicken mixture into each. Pull edges of dough over filling toward center; crease and squeeze dough gently to hold in place.
  • Sprinkle a tiny bit of cheddar cheese on top of each pie.
  •  Bake at 375 for between 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool for approximately 5 minutes and serve.

Apple Cinnamon Smoothie Recipe- You’ll love It!

Brian and I have become so into making smoothies lately. Ever since we invested in a decent blender, we have been on this kick. I’m loving it. I enjoy having one on my way to work every morning. Lately i’ve been craving something  with apples in it, so we just threw some different ingredients into the blender and BAM, we created the Apple Cinnamon Smoothie. 

While it may take a little bit of chopping, peeling off skin of different fruits, and measuring a few ingredients, all you really have to do is just throw it all into the blender. We have a Ninja Blender. Which, by the way, karate chops fruit up better than teenage mutant ninja turtle (corny joke, i know).

RECIPE:Honey Mustard & Pecan Brussels Sprouts

So… one of my favorite vegetables is brussels sprouts. A lot of people aren’t huge fans, but I really believe that those people just haven’t eaten them the right way. I’m so excited to share this amazing recipe because I love it and we eat them at least once per week in our house. I promised I would share last week, so here it is.

BSJP

 Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 bundles of brussels sprouts
  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Here is what you’ll do:

Step one: Mix the dijon mustard, oil and honey.

Step two: Cut off the base of the sprouts and then cut the sprout in half.

Step three: Saute the brussels sprouts so that they are al dente then add the pecan and saute until roasted.

 Step four: Mix the brussels sprouts and the honey mustard concoction.

Step five: Lay tin foil in a baking pan and lay brussels sprouts flat on the tin foil. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes until caramelized.

I hope you enjoy as much as we do!

  Hi, I’m Jessie from Fashion Life! I am so excited to provide you with a look for one of your many Christmas parties this season!   I went for a more formal look and loved it.  I think this look is so elegant and would fit in anywhere, whether it’s a Christmas party at a restaurant or even at someone’s house.  I actually used a black lace dress for my top and put this long gold maxi skirt over it.  I added gold and silver accessories and a black clutch.  I think sparkly is a must for holiday parties.  I usually add sparkle through jewelry, but you can see I also added it here in my clutch and belt.  The clutch is a bit hard to see, but there are rhinestones on the clasp.
