Creamy Chicken Casserole

Last night I decided to make a Chicken Casserole. I can’t remember the last time I made one. I made this one a little different than I usually do… in part because I was missing half the ingredients and two, just to try something different.

Usually I make this casserole with cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soup and add dry chow mein noodles. I didn’t have any of those lol so I had to improvise!

Refinished Dresser (For Craft Room)

On the weekend I decided it was time to paint this old dresser we had in the basement. I thought that once redone, it would work perfect as extra storage in the craft room and that we could pretty it up!

I am getting excited about finally getting to work on the craft room.  In my mind, I can see how it will look when it’s done… now I just have to get there! (You can see my next project on the far left…. a cat bed for Jeffy!)

I bought chalk paint through Amazon, in a sort of turquoise colour.  The paint was awesome to work with.  It was thick, meaning minimal drips, and it covered great!

Woodland Baby Wall Décor

I already published one post using something my mother-in-law gave me a few weeks ago when I posted about the little silver platters I turned into hanging chalkboards. This time I am using a large wooden heart she also gave me at the same time.

I made a wall hanging for the baby on the way for the nursery!

Glazed Chicken Meatloaf (with Roasted Potatoes)

I put the potatoes in brackets because I decided to add them to the pan after I did my ingredients pictures and everything else… and the fact they aren’t really a recipe lol.

This is a different, healthier take on meatloaf, using ground chicken instead of beef and passed the dinner test!

Repurposed Serving Tray Chalkboards

A few weeks ago my mother-in-law asked me if I wanted to go through a few things before she sent them off to the thrift store. In the basket were two little “silver” serving trays. I couldn’t figure out what I was going to do with them at first but then remembered I saw on one site or another where someone made similar trays into little chalkboards, so that’s what I decided to do!

Double Chocolate Salted Caramel Chip Cookies

Last week when I was doing an online Wal-Mart order I saw some “Chipits” salted caramel chips, meant for cookies.  I thought they would be a perfect addition to my double chocolate chip cookies!  I wasn’t sure how much of the caramel flavour would come through but I was pleasantly surprised!

Dulce de Leche – Condensed Milk Fudge

A week or two ago we had a nasty snow storm. It was Chris’ first day back to work after his Christmas holidays. I swear our driveway had at least 8 – 10 inches of snow, if not a foot! I went outside to try to at least get the front and back decks shoveled for him (and so there was less snow being brought in by the dogs). Next thing I know, our neighbor from across the street…. Hi Charlene!… yelled over to ask me what I was doing. She told me that her husband was planning on coming over with his tractor to do our driveway shortly.

Needless to say, Chris was overjoyed when he got home and realized he didn’t have to dig us out lol! I said I would make some fudge as a thank you, and as terrible as it is, I am only just getting to it today!

This is what the snow looked like that day! You can see our wonderful neighbor in one of the pictures cleaning up Mother Nature’s mess!

This is some of the fudge that I made to say thank you! Dulce de Leche fudge.
