This stuff is so delicious!!! 

1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
Mix the brown sugar til it's a little thick
add 1 mug(whatever mug you're using) of milk
1 tsp vanilla
a dash of cinnamon
add all that to the butter and sugar, boil til milk a frothy then pour in your cup

Add some whip topping if you'd like.
It's a tad rich though so I wouldn't make this everyday. Plump you up real quick, but give it a try and I'm sure you'll like it.

Mini Chicken Pot Pies

I made this for my son and parents in law, because my husband doesn't care for most veggies, but it was a success. 

2 cans flakey layer biscuits
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cans cooked chicken or prepared fresh chicken
1 bag of frozen mixed veggies

Mix soup, veggies and chicken in a bowl, season to taste.
Flatten biscuits out and press each one into muffin or cupcake pan, fill with the soup/chicken mix.
Bake at 400 for 15 to 20 minutes.

This is the easiest thing I've ever made. I used cupcake pans and I was able to make 4 cans of flakey biscuits worth of pot pies. My sister loved them, my in laws loved them, my mom loved them, but most of all my son loved them. I will be making this again for sure.


Honey Balsamic Chicken

I wasn't sure about this recipe and if my husband and son would like it, but they did. Super easy too.

2 chicken breasts
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 clove of garlic
2 tbsp oil
salt and pepper to taste
1  tbsp butter
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp honey

  1. Slice the chicken breasts on a diagonal into six strips each. Place the strips in a quart sized zip top bag along with ¼ cup of balsamic vinegar, one clove of garlic (minced), 1 Tbsp of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix the ingredients in the bag and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  2. When you’re ready to cook, heat the second tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the oil is hot, cook the strips until browned on both sides (about 2-3 minutes each side). You may have to do two batches. Place the cooked chicken on a clean plate.
  3. Turn the heat down on the skillet to medium-low and add the butter and last 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar to the skillet. Use a spoon to stir the mixture and dissolve the sticky bits off of the bottom of the skillet. Once the mixture has dissolved together, add the honey, increase the heat, and allow the sauce to simmer until thickened (about five minutes).
  4. Once the sauce has thickened, season to taste with salt and pepper (I just used a pinch of each). Add the chicken back to the skillet and toss to coat in the warm balsamic sauce. Serve immediately.
I served it over rice. Quinoa would be good too. I tried it before I used the honey mix and it tasted great as well. My family liked it, it was easy, so I'm happy :)
