Weekly Food Fun

Happy Food Fun time to you.

This was a short food fun week of cooking due to New Years.  I celebrate the New Year with not cooking big meals.  I buy and make up a bunch of snacks and our family enjoys them for a few days.  I love to cook, although I like my little break of snacks.  And, oddly enough I didn’t even take pictures.

I do want to share one of my favorite recipes,  Chili’s Copycat Skillet Queso Recipe it does have a hefty spice, I use a little less chili powder when I make it.  I mix it on the stove then put in a crock pot on low or warm setting for the day.  The top can get a dry layer on it.  I have found that if I put some water in the bottom of the crock pot.  Then put the queso in a heat safe bowl, then place that in the water and cover it doesn’t dry out as much.

For the meals I did cook they were creamy and pasta good.

Crockpot Ranch Chicken – from Baking Outside the Box, recipe here.  I did edit the side to go with it.  Instead of cauliflower I used potatoes.  I cube the potatoes, this time I used red potatoes so I left the skin on.  Place in the bottom of the crock pot. Then layer in the chicken, ranch dressing mix, butter and cream cheese mixture.

Italian Baked Chicken – from Food Network, recipe here.  I again modified for what our family likes.  Instead of diced tomatoes I used tomato sauce.  I really liked the crunchy topping.

Enjoy the fun of food!
