BEDA #20 Freeze warning, Nashville Hot chicken and etc

Hello everyone
Crazy weather has us expecting a freeze tonight but thankfully it won’t be a long hard freeze. 
We have garden plants in the grown,  flowers about to bloom and our strawberry plants and berry bushes are loaded with blooms 
So,  we’ve covered everything with old sheets and such- and are hoping for the

I made a few changes 

I decreased the red pepper to 1/2 t and it was plenty hot. 
I omitted the salt and subbed onion powder for the garlic.  

This is a recipe I will keep.  They tasted great and cooked up fast.  
We had oven roasted veggies with the chicken - and I guess I was really hungry for veggies ๐Ÿ˜ณ

My husband goes to physical therapy and has 3 therapists. 2 are expecting and he says they talks about cookies all the time.  
He asked me to make them some so I mixed up a batch of chocolate chip oatmeal cookie dough.  I will bake them just before he goes to therapy next. 
I used mini chocolate chips is why the dough looks so loaded.  

More Parsimony asked which salad shooter I recommend.  
Well. It just depends. 
The smaller one takes up almost no room so if you’re short on storage space,  it is ideal. 
However the smaller salad shooter has a smaller feed tube than the bigger one.  So if your doing potatoes or cabbage,  they have to be cut small to get them to fit in the tube. 
If you know how  big a 8 ounce  stick of Cracker Barrel cheese - then that will tell you how big the feed tube is on the small one.  
Potatos and wedges of cabbage would be much easier in the bigger one but they will still work in the small one, as long as they are cut to fit.  
Both Salad Shooters slice and shred food quickly and easily. 
I think I said yesterday that I wish I had a bigger one and will be looking for a bigger one at a good price.   I do cook a lot and people who cook less may prefer the smaller one.  

My daughter has a small salad shooter and I think she uses it only to grate carrots for carrot cake.  

Hope all info helps! 

About celebrity cookbooks,  my son has a Chrissy Tiegan book and he said her biscuit recipe was really good.  
I’ve made 3 recipes from the Joanna Gaines book and they’ve all been good.  I do think she knows how to cook.  Her recipes are just not the type of recipes I prefer to cook.

  1. I made that same recipe and used cauliflower pieces instead of chicken. It was SO good.

  2. I am definitely going to make those Nashville Hot Bites (with a little tweaking to make them keto) They sound delicious.

  3. Why have I never thought to make cookie dough ahead and just bake as needed? What a great idea. Wonder how long it keeps in the refrigerator?

  4. We had a freeze warning here in IL last night and will have one again tonight. I don't have any veggies planted yet, but I did cover my blooming Bleeding Heart plant and my peony bush. I also brought my basket of pansies inside.

    That chicken looks so good, but unfortunately, I have many food sensitivities, and now can't eat any hot spices.

    Have a good week!

  5. Oh my I would sit down and eat all of that cookie dough that looks so good. I often cut up chicken breasts and dip them in egg and breadcrumbs and then fry. I will try this is looks yummy.

  6. As I scanned the recipe I thought that much cayenne would be too hot to suit us and I do like things to be a bit more warming with the spices. I'm so glad that you shared how you liked this. I'll give it a try when I find wings at a decent price.

    I think I know what you mean about Joanna G's book, I like recipes that are more economical and not quite so calorie heavy. I sometimes read recipe sand think "Gracious! That's far too many calories to suit ME!"

    And you mentioning cookie dough in the freezer made me think only just now of the cheese wafer dough I put in the freezer, planning to take with us for vacation. I guess we'll have it while we're here at home! lol


Thank you for dropping by today ❤️
