Bite Size Apple Pie
Here is the recipe she posted:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. Spray muffin cups with cooking spray
3. Using a rolling pin, flatten each biscuit into a 3-4 inch circle

5. Add sugar, cinnamon, & nutmeg
6. Place 1 tablespoon of mixture onto each biscuit

Sweet N Sour Chicken

My husband loves Chinese food. He could eat it every day, especially Sweet N Sour chicken. Gia over at A Life In Progress posted the recipes to this very easy and so tasty Sweet N Sour Chicken.

Sweet N Sour Chicken


1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cubed

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/2 cup diced green bell pepper

1 cup carrot strips

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tablespoon corn starch

1/4 cup soy sauce

1 (8ounce) can pineapple chunks, with juice

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown chicken in oil.

Add green bell pepper, carrot, and garlic and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine corn starch and soy sauce and mix together, pour mixture into skillet along with the pineapple and its juice, vinegar, brown sugar, and ginger.

Stir together and bring just to a boil.

Serve over rice.

Chocolate Chip Scones

Never in my life have I had a scone before. I never really had a desire to have one until I saw that Jennifer over at The Francis Family had them back in January. I just had to make them for myself and try them out. I feel in love with them. My husband on the other hand wasn't very thrilled with them.


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/3 cup white sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 stick unsalted butter, chilled and cubed

1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup orange juice


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. With a pastry blender or a large fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the chocolate chips. Mix in the orange juice to form a dough.

Turn out the dough on a floured surface. Pat or roll into a 9 inch circle about 1/2 inch thick. With a 2 1/2 inch fluted biscuit cutter, cut out 12 scones, pushing the dough scraps together for the last few, if necessary. Transfer the scones to the baking sheet.

Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Move to wire racks to cool.

Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake

Yes this is just a box cake and frosting out of a can. But I mixed it up with adding hersey kisses in the middle. It helped to level out the cakes when I stacked them.
