Easy Cheesy Penne August 20, 2017

Filed under: Dinner,Gluten Free,Slow Cooker — lewissisters @ 11:40 pm

Hi guys!
The last month has been crazy! I finished my novel and signed with a publisher; the blog has taken a back seat.
My dad is the hero for this month; he saw this recipe on social media and made it for us today. We adapted the recipe, by using Gluten Free Penne, not using mushrooms, using onion flakes and changing the herb to oregano. This recipe is easy to throw together because the slow cooker does all the work!
We served the penne with cooked vegetables. Use a 5 quart or larger slow cooker.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did. It’s delicious!
 
Easy Cheesy Chicken Penne
1 and ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 (10 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
½ cup chicken broth
¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp dried tarragon (time and oregano are good too)
1 and ½ cups sliced mushrooms, optional
1 small yellow onion, diced, (onion flakes are good too)
1 cup sour cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 lb penne pasta (gluten free), cooked
Directions:
1. Add the cream of chicken soup and chicken broth to the slow cooker. Stir until smooth.

2. Add the tarragon (or other herbs), pepper, mushrooms and onion; stir.

3. Add the chicken breasts.

4. Cook on low for 6 hours.

5. Once the 6 hours are done, cook the pasta according to the package directions, do not overcook.

6. Shred the chicken and return to slow cooker. Add the sour cream and half of the cheese; stir.

7. Add drained, cooked pasta and stir.

8. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top of the mixture. Cover the slow cooker; cook on low for 20 minutes. Serve!
Enjoy!

BBQ Pork Chops February 2, 2017

Filed under: Dinner,Gluten Free,Slow Cooker — lewissisters @ 10:53 pm

Hello everyone!
This month’s recipe was a creative accident that turned out to be delicious! In December 2016, we were going to have barbecue ribs, but my dad accidently bought pork chops so we decided: “What the heck, we will give barbecue pork chops a try.” I am telling you, they were delicious! You have got to try them because the way we make them is so darn simple; it makes the pork chops extremely tender. This is the same recipe for our barbecue ribs https://lewissisters.wordpress.com/?s=BBQ+Ribs 
We served this dish with rice and cooked vegetables.
 
Barbecue Pork Chops


1 cup plus a little more water

8 boneless pork chops (or more) 

1 bottle BBQ sauce (any kind) 

Cooking spray

Directions

1. Spray a small crock pot with cooking spray.
2. Put pork chops in crock pot, season chops with preferred seasoning, and pour water on top.
3. Cook on low 7 to 9 hours or on high 4 to 6 hours; drain water.
4. Pour BBQ sauce on top of pork chops and heat through.

Serve with rice and cooked vegetables; great as leftovers.

Enjoy!

Hey gals and gents!! It’s the older sister…. gasp…. yeah I make and appearance once a blue moon. 😊

Before I get to the recipe I wanted to let you all know that I am becoming a consultant for LuLaRoe! If you haven’t heard of LuLaRoe it is a clothing company that makes amazingly soft clothes that are modest and stylish. Their leggings are as soft as butter! Seriously no joke. Not to mention the clothes look amazing on every body type which is one of the many reasons I chose to become a consultant. If you would like to learn more about the clothes, try the clothes and even shop join my VIP Group on Facebook. I’m currently waiting for my inventory but am holding Giveaways of LuLaCash and Leggings which is a great way to get a chance to try the clothes! Here is the link to my group I would love to have you!!

Biscuit mix of your choice!

Cook on low for 6-8 hours until chicken is fully cooked. Use a sturdy spoon to break up the chicken after cooking.

Creamy Italian Chicken  October 17, 2016

Filed under: Chicken,Dinner,Gluten Free,Slow Cooker — lewissisters @ 1:30 am

Hi!

A few weeks ago a friend invited me to a Facebook group that was created to make five healthy crockpot dinners in one week. In my opinion, the best thing about the group was all of the recipes that were shared by different group members in the comments of each meal post. Now, I have a ton of new crockpot recipes to try and I am so excited to share them with you!

The first recipe is a simple chicken dinner that can be thrown together in less than ten minutes. We served it with rice and cooked vegetables; add extra sauce on your chicken and rice, it is delicious!

I hope these crockpot recipes make dinner easier for all of us. 🙂

 

Creamy Italian chicken


4 chicken breasts 

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese softened 

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 packet of Italian seasoning 
Directions:

1. Spray crockpot with cooking spray.

2. Put chicken in and top with Italian seasoning.

3. Mix the softened cream cheese and soup together; pour on top of chicken. If you have any seasoning left over, mix it in to the sauce.

5. Cook on low 4 to 6 hours.

Enjoy!

 

 

Fruit Salad October 1, 2016

Filed under: Dessert,Dinner,Gluten Free,Side Dishes,Snacks — lewissisters @ 3:50 pm

Hi everyone,
This is a wonderful dish to take to fall barbecues. It is a delicious side dish, dessert and snack!

My parents and I ate a similar dessert at a recent barbecue that my mom’s work held and I loved it so much I wanted to recreate it.

My dad and I created this recipe and took it to a neighborhood barbecue our neighbor held last month and everyone loved it. A week later we made it again and changed the yogurt from vanilla to strawberry and the vanilla pudding to cheesecake. And it was delicious

Have fun creating your own salad by changing the yogurt and pudding flavors and adding different fruits.
Lewissisters Fruit Salad with Marshmallows


12 ounces Cool Whip

1 small box vanilla pudding

18 ounces vanilla yogurt

1 pound sliced strawberries, one package.

3 cups small marshmallows, optional

3 Sliced bananas
Directions:

1. Put the yogurt, pudding and Cool Whip in a large bowl and mix everything together with a wisk.

2. Cover the bowl and put it in the fridge to thicken; for one hour or more.

3. Wash, hull, and slice the strawberries; slice the bananas.

4. Fold the fruit and marshmallows into the cream mixture and serve immediately. This dessert is even better the next day!

Enjoy!

 

Chicken, Rice and Veggies August 6, 2016

Filed under: Chicken,Dinner,Gluten Free — lewissisters @ 11:02 pm

Hi all!
This month’s recipe is an easy lunch or dinner to throw together. It only has three ingredients: rice, vegetables and chicken. For easy preparation, use a rotisserie chicken, shredded and skin removed.
This meal was created by our uncle. A few months ago, Grandma Muse and our uncle hosted my sister’s birthday lunch. Our uncle served this dish and told my mom how to make it. I have wanted to try this dish ever since and today my parents and I finally made it. We used a rotisserie chicken and concluded that this meal is delicious. It started raining when the meal was cooking; I thought it was perfect timing as we ate this meal for lunch.
This meal would be great with a fruit salad and some cornbread or biscuits on the side.
Here is the link to our fruit salad: https://lewissisters.wordpress.com/2016/10/01/fruit-salad/
Here is the link for our cornbread:
