The Cooking Channel: How to make a Cornbread Bowl (Video)

Does your family love cornbread or bread with their meal? My husband loves bread! Love is actually an understatement.

A few weeks ago I came up with an idea to use my vintage pyrex to create cornbread bowls. Usually, I’ll find bread at the grocery store and make bread bowls when we’re having any kind of soup or chili. However, this time I came up with this idea and wasn’t sure how it was going to work at first, but it was a success.

Mama Minute: Taking Advantage of Your Crockpot on Busy Days (Video)

Today I’d like to share with you something I’ve been doing for a while that has made cooking for my family a breeze on busy days. That’s using my crockpot.

When it comes to making sure my family eats a good meal, I do whatever it takes to make that happen. In order to do that, sometimes I need help in the kitchen. One of those helpers is my crockpot. On days that I have multiple things going on, I put a meal on for dinner and carry on with my day.

It’s great when you have children involved in sports and you’ll be gone most of the day. Great for Sundays when you want to get out in the yard to play in dirt, but still need dinner done. Even better you can have one meal cooking in the crockpot and another on the stove to cook up meals for a couple days.

If you’re unsure of cooking in the crockpot, there’s multiple sources of help on line…Pinterest, blogs, Google….and the list goes on. Use those tools to help get a crockpot meal on the table for your family. You can also ask your family for ideas as well as be creative and make up your own.

Of course there are some dishes I refuse to cook in the crockpot, like a whole chicken. But those I do cook in it, I cook in it. Hope you begin to use your crockpot on those busy days when you need a meal on the table with no hassle. How often do you use your crockpot?

The Cooking Channel: Porkchop Skillet Dinner for Two (w/Video)

What do you do when you have two leftover pork chops that won’t fit in a pan?  You make Porkchop Skillets for Two.  With Valentine’s Day coming up this will be a great dinner to cook for you and your hubby or significant other.  If you’re not a fan of pork feel free to add your meat preference.

To make this dish you’ll need:

2 Cast Iron Skillets (if you don’t have cast iron skillets feel free to use any skillet or casserole dishes.)

2 Pork Chops

2 Potatoes

1 can cream of mushroom soup

Broccoli Florets

Olive Oil

1 Onion (sliced)

Salt & Pepper

*Preheat oven on 350 degrees*

Instructions:

Season pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides.

Pour a little bit of olive oil into your cast iron skillets.

Next lay your pork chop inside the skillet.

Now we’re going to add in the potato, but first make sure it has been cleaned and coat it lightly with some olive oil.  Next place your potatoes in the skillet next to the pork chop.

Load on the onions!  Well, actually I had a huge onion and I dare to waste it.

What I do when I use cream of mushroom when cooking is… I like to put it in a bowl add water and stir it up.  This keeps it from being so thick and I’m able to spread it on easier.

Pour the cream of mushroom over pork chops and onions.

Cover with foil and place in oven on 400 for 45 minutes.  At 45 minutes take it out the oven to check to make sure potato is tender. If potato is tender add in broccoli, add butter to potato, cover back up and place in oven for 10 to 15 more minutes.

Remove from oven and serve.

Enjoy.  Watch along with video below if you’d like 🙂

The Cooking Channel: Crockpot Lasagna (Video)

Sunday evening we went to see Disney on Ice. The past few Sundays we’ve ordered out because I just didn’t feel like cooking. However, last week we ordered pizza and we weren’t too pleased. So, this Sunday I knew we had to have something delicious, but I also didn’t want to spend much time in the kitchen. To solve both dilemmas I made lasagna and made it in the crockpot.

Years, years, years ago I knew nothing about making lasagna. Not a thing! We ate store bought lasagna. Ewww 🙁 From the first time I made it, I vowed to never, ever, eva…eat store bought lasagna again. I have kept my vow to this day. Another thing I don’t fret about is having the same exact ingredients every time I cook a specific dish. I just don’t. I think oftentimes we spend unnecessary amounts of money on one dish. If I have the staple items I need to make a dish I make it with that and I’m good and the food is good too.

So, find below my video on how I made this delicious lasagna.
