Baked Honey Chicken

In my research, I found this recipe and I tried it on my family (they are my taste testers) and I got a big thumbs up from my picky eater son. He loves meat !! I didn't have corn flakes, so I used Special K. I think any flakey type cereal would work. Reminds me of my Honey Bunches of Oats Chicken.

Baked Honey Chicken
3 lbs. chicken breasts - boned and skinned
2 c. corn flakes, crushed or other flake cereal
1/3 c. honeySalt and pepper
Wash chicken and pat dry. Can be pounded thinner. Combine corn flakes and salt and pepper to taste. Dip chicken in honey or smooth on chicken with your fingers, then roll chicken in corn flake mixture. Place in a large buttered baking dish and bake in a preheated oven at 350 to 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes until golden brown..

Super easy Cheesecake from scratch

If you LOVE cheesecake (the cool, no bake kind) this recipe is so easy and tastes great. My family loved it and I made mini cheesecakes for my Milk and Honey class last week. For the mini cheesecakes, I use a MINI vanilla wafer (who'd have thought there was such a thing?) and used a mini muffin tin!

Easy Cheesecake
½ c warm water
¾ c non instant powdered milk
¾ c sugar
¼ c lemon juice or orange juice
1 t vanilla
1 c cream cheese or cream cheese yogurt (I used 1 8oz brick of lowfat cream cheese)
Put warm water in blender and turn on medium. While running the blender, add all ingredients. Pour mixture quickly into a graham cracker crust. Chill

YUMMY! Who knew dry milk could taste so good.

Here it comes, another of my foodstorage classes...Saturday July 18 at 10am. If you email me I will send you the address.
I guess this class is for me since I really don't like dry milk. I will get out of my comfort zone and try new recipes (or old ones, using dry milk) and honey, but not always together. I will have a variety of milks to try (non fat dry milk, morning moo- milk alternative, boxed milk- in a variety of flavors) for whoever shows up, to sample. I promise i will not force you to drink anything you don't want to!
Now HONEY...I LOVE HONEY. I use it in a lot of recipes and it is one of those essential food storage items I have to have on hand. It stores FOREVER! Even if it gets hard and crystalizes, I can place it in a pan of hot water and melt it back down (and even boiled it all over my stove top- not fun to clean up!) I am not a perfect cook! I have my "Lucy and Ethyl" moments. I practice a lot too, I may even practiced on YOU!

I have a busy 2 weeks ahead getting recipes and information together for my class, a " 5 ingredient or 15 minute dish" for Enrichment night and a Chocolate cookoff (starring my Butt cake- see recipe below) and all the other mundane household duties.
If you have a great recipe using dry milk or honey, email it to me.
Why Honey, it's time we GOT MILK!
