I'm not sure if it is the hint of fall in the air or being completely bored of my usual recipes, but I am on the hunt for some new scrum-d-lumptious dinners! Last week I tried three new recipes. The first two were complete flops. (Such a bummer when this happens). But, the last one turned out good enough to commit to a recipe card. I thought I would share:
- 4 chicken breasts (I cubed mine)
- 1 packet Zesty Italian dressing seasoning
- 1 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
- 2 cans cream of chicken soup
Cook on low for 4 hours in the crockpot. If sauce is too thick, add a little milk. Serve over pasta.
I stole this picture from the internet because Declan was being a little difficult right around the time we were serving dinner. Didn't even think about busting out the camera. :)
And, because I love dessert, I had to try this easy peasy recipe that only calls for 2 ingredients:
- 1 box of yellow cake mix
- 1 15 oz can of pumpkin puree
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix the two ingredients. Pour batter into a greased 7 x 11 inch baking dish. Bake for about 28 minutes.
Apple Cider Glaze
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 T. apple cider
- 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice
In a small bowl blend all ingredients until smooth. Pour over Pumpkin Cake letting it drizzle down the sides of the cake. Let set before covering.
I am more of a frosting girl myself, so I topped it with cream cheese frosting:
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 4 cups confectioners' sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
This is the dangerous kind of dessert - you find yourself stopping by for a quick bite and before you know it, it's almost gone!
Both recipes were *pinspirations*!
