Fanciest Ramen


I have always liked Ramen noodles for every reason except that they have basically NO nutrition. My husband looked concerned when he saw the following ingredients sitting on the counter before I started making dinner.

2 packages of chicken flavored ramen noodles
1 head of cabbage
1 large chicken breast

My random concoction turned out great, and that's why it is our newest addition to my food blog.
How to make the "Fanciest Ramen Noodles"

Dice one large raw chicken breast into bite-size pieces and cook fully in a pan on the stove with olive oil and seasonings of your choice (garlic salt, Mrs. Dash, seasoned salt, etc.)
Cook the ramen noodles in a medium-sized pot without seasoning packets. Drain the noodles once they are cooked and then add thinly sliced cabbage to the pot and place over lowest heat setting. Add 1-2 packets (depending on your salt preference) of ramen noodle seasonings and stir in about 1 tablespoon olive oil. Stir well so oil and seasonings are evenly distributed around noodles and cabbage. Add chicken pieces after they are cooked and let sit over lowest heat until cabbage is steamed.
Serve hot and enjoy your fancy (and cheap) dinner. :)

Pollo Asado

My husband has a new favorite meal, pollo asado. Luckily for me, I have a favorite store, Sprouts, that sells marinated chicken "pollo asado" style and it is very decently priced. I get enough for the 2 of us (about 1.5 lbs) for about $5 and it is worth it.

Sometimes I like making everything from scratch, and sometimes I don't. This is a great meal for one of those "don't" days.

Wassail - Warm Drink

Wassail is a hot, nutritious drink with an aroma and flavor that fills the house and soul. This is my very favorite Christmas-time drink.

For a group of 15-20 people, slowly heat on stove top or crock pot: 64 ounces apple juice 64 ounces orange juice (fresh squeezed is amazing) 3-4 cinnamon sticks (to taste) 1/2 tsp ground cloves
Heat over the stove until perfectly steamy. Store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat on the stove top or in the microwave.
This drink makes a great pair with Snickerdoodle cookies.

Honey Ginger Chex Mix

This is my new favorite chex mix recipe. It turned out delicious...just the perfect amount of sweet and still a bit healthy.


The recipe came from the back of the Honey Nut Chex cereal box and I made a few alterations to work with the ingredients that I had and wanted to include.

In a large microwaveable bowl mix together:
6 cups Honey Nut Chex
1 cup dried banana chips
1-2 cups almonds (I used sliced almonds)

In a small microwaveable bowl, combine and heat uncovered for 1-2 minutes or until boiling:
1/4 cup Butter or Margarine (I used Smart Balance Light)
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Brown sugar
1 tsp Ginger

Pour Honey mixture over cereal mixture and stir until evenly coated. Microwave uncovered for 4 minutes, stirring and scraping the sides every minute.

Add:
1 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup cranberries or raisins

Microwave for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring every minute.
Spread out onto wax paper and allow to cool. Store in an airtight container.
After mine cooled, I added dark chocolate c…
