My famous cranberry sauce!!! For years I literally thought I was the most creative wannabe chef of all times since I put apple cider in my cranberry sauce!!! My secret weapon to dominating cranberry sauce. When most people opted for orange juice, I reached for that Apple cider!!! Then along came Pinterest shattering my cranberry sauce ego and letting me know others are just as creative in the kitchen!
Regardless of how many people make cranberry sauce using cider, all I know is it’s so god damn delicious that everyone needs to make their cranberry sauce this way! Enjoy!!!!
• 12oz Bag Cranberries
• 1 Cup Sugar
• 1/2 Cup Water
• 1/2 Cup Apple Cider
Add cranberries, sugar & to a pot.
Pour in the apple cider. Stir. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 25 minutes, stirring regularly until the cranberries fall apart and the mixture reduces to a thick, chunky sauce.
Cool to room temperature before serving.
Only 23 more days until Thanksgiving, but who’s counting!?! For being the biggest foodie of all times, Thanksgiving is one meal I never seem too cook! Once again we will be jetting off to visit family and they will be doing all of the cooking while I sit back with a glass of champagne in my hand, enjoying some family time.
Since I do live in the middle of no where with family living thousands of miles away, cooking a huge turkey on Thanksgiving can be pretty wasteful unless a weeks worth of Turkey sandwiches are your jam! I know after day two, I’m turkeyed our! When hubby and I are home for turkey day, we usually go the turkey tenderloin route. Buy a double pack. That way we each have enough turkey for dinner and more for later!!! This is my very traditional, Turkey Breast Tenderloins recipe. Exactly how I would cook a giant turkey and just as juicy! Enjoy!!
• 2 Turkey Tenderloins ( 1 1/2-2lbs Package)
• 1/2 TSP Black Pepper
• 3/4 TSP Salt
• 1 TSP Garlic Powder
• Melted Butter
Preheat your oven 400°F. Place turkey tenderloins in baking dish. Smother in butter. Make sure you coat the turkey and there is a little bit of butter at the bottom of the baking dish. The turkey will soak the butter up while baking!
Sprinkle with 3/4tsp salt, 1/2tsp pepper, 1 tsp garlic.
Place rosemary on top of each turkey tenderloin. Roast for about 45 minutes or until a cooking thermometer registers 161°F.
Allow the turkey breast tenderloins to rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
Tis the season of all things spooky!!! Even those cheese quesadillas your kiddos crave!!!! My daughter has been on a huge quesadilla kick lately!!! She discovered how delicious they were a few Moe’s trips ago and now she’s hooked! WooHoo for having another Mexican food lover in the house!!!
Since Mexican food is also my favorite and I just love being totally festive, I decided all cheese quesadillas consumed in the Storms household need to be jack-o-lanterns until further notice. Enjoy :):)
• cheddar cheese
• 2 flour tortillas
Take a sharp knife & a four tortilla and cut out a jack-o-lantern face.
Sprinkle cheddar cheese on the other flour tortilla.
Place the jack-o-lantern cut-out tortilla on top of the cheese covered tortilla. Place on a frying pan on medium heat and then over with lid so the cheese melts. You can not flip the quesadilla so the lid will help heat the top.
Once cheese has fully melted, serve & enjoy!
Tis the season of all things apple!!! I know I’m going to basic girl hell for this, but I just do not like pumpkin! However, what I hate in the pumpkin world I do make up with apples! My latest apple creation!?! Apple Wontons!!! Literally so yummy you will eat them all in one sitting lol. Enjoy!!!
• Wonton Wraps
• 1 Can Apple Pie Filler
• 1 Egg
• 2TBSP Brown Sugar
• 1/2 TSP Cinnamon
• Vegetable Oil
Lay out the wonton wraps. Then place apple pie filling on each wonton wrap.
Coat the wonton edges with egg and then fold the wrap in half using the egg as glue.
LTake a fork and press down the Apple wonton edges.
Cook apple wontons in a deep fryer, air fryer or heat vegetable oil in a frying pan on medium heat until shell is golden brown.
Remove from oil. Mix sugar & cinnamon together. Then coat apple wontons in cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Serve & Enjoy!!!
Cheetos!!!! Literally my favorite type of chip!!! Hot Cheetos will always have the number one spot in my heart, but regular ole Cheetos will always be number two!
Sinve hubby is a total hater of Hot a Cheetos. I know, how is that even possible?!?! I decided to take part in the viral, bread your chicken in your favorite chips craz and bread chicken fingers in normal Cheetos so the whole family could enjoy them!
Was it worth it?!? I was definitely glad I gave them a try! They weren’t as cheesy flavored once baked, but you could definitely taste the Cheetos deliciousness. I might just have to try Hot Cheetos next!
• Chicken Breasts
Cut your chicken breast up into strips.
Take your Cheetos and crush them into crumbs.
Dip your chicken strips into the beaten egg.
Then roll in Cheeto crumbs.
Lay on a baking sheet. Pre-heat oven to 350. Place Cheetos Chicken Fingers in the oven and cook for 30 minutes or until chicken temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
