Slow Cooker Indian Butter Chicken

This delicious Indian dish is easy to prepare, smells amazing as it cooks for 4-5 hours and uses many spices that you already have in your cabinet.

Plan ahead- the chicken needs to marinate overnight. Many reviewers compare this recipe to meals at your favorite Indian restaurant! The chicken is so flavorful and tender in the delicious sauce. I served it over basmati rice and a side of vegetables.

I hope you enjoy this ethnic dish as much as I did!


Magnolia Table

Who doesn’t LOVE Chip and Joanna Gaines?! Their numerous adventures include the hit tv show Fixer Upper, a lifestyle magazine, a new breakfast restaurant, Hearth & Hand home collection, an awesome new cookbook and oh yeah, a sweet new baby boy that just joined their family last week!

I was so excited to receive this gift on Mother’s Day! I’ve tried a couple recipes so far and I can’t wait to dig in further to this awesome book! I love the stories, the photos and the fun introduction. You should pick up a copy and enjoy it too!

JoJo’s Biscuits!

“It took me a year of Saturday’s to get these biscuits just right,” said JoJo. The recipe makes 20 biscuits so it’s perfect for sharing or taking to an event. You can also freeze part of the batch and use later.

I really like this particular recipe because you mix up the dough and then refrigerate 30 minutes or overnight. It’s quick and easy the next morning to cut out the biscuits and bake.

The biscuits turned out light and delicious! They were best served on the same day, they lost some moisture by the next morning.

Banana Bread!

This is a great basic recipe that uses an 8×8 pan instead of a loaf pan. The texture is great and it’s easy to cut nice squares. We have a few ripe bananas sitting on the counter and my daughter plans to make this again this afternoon! We can enjoy it for breakfast or a snack for a couple days, with a side of fruit.

“Life is so busy, but getting around the table and having a home-cooked meal, those moments are just so worth it.” Joanna Gaines

Melting ice cream cone cake!

Check out this fun dessert idea from the Food Network!

This awesome idea is going on my summer fun to do list! Who wouldn’t love to have this cake at a reunion, a cake walk, slumber party or just because?! With step by step instructions, you can bake like the pros at home.

Please send me your photos if you give it a try, I’d love to see your creations!

Pineapple Ham Sheet Pan

Another great sheet pan idea! So simple to throw together and clean up is a breeze!

The roasted veggies could be substituted for whatever your family likes or you have on hand. Just be sure to slice the vegetables thin so they will be done when the ham is heated. I used Bob Evans ham steaks (which are fully cooked) and made another sheet of extra veggies to have left overs for the next night.

Our power went out the other night while I was making this dinner but it was delicious once I was able to finish it! So, fingers crossed that you have better luck! 🍀

Sheet Pan Cashew Chicken

I love sheet pan meals! All in one, quick to make and clean up is a breeze!

I left a few ingredients out (hoisin sauce and sesame oil) but this dish is delicious! You can swap out the veggies and use what you have on hand or those that your family likes.

I used red peppers and broccoli but the options are endless. I like to serve it over brown rice or quinoa. I love these boil in a bag items:


Banana Bread

Everyone needs a quick, simple and delicious banana bread recipe! I have a favorite go-to from Paula Deen but it requires more time and more ingredients. I recently ran across this photo and decided to give it a try when I had some very ripe bananas sitting on the counter.

It was quick and easy to mix together and turned out great! Add some fresh berries or a cup of yogurt and breakfast is ready for a few days!
