Flower Cakes

Howdy Doody--

Well Happy Father's Day!! I was at home by myself today and decided to try out making flowers out of candies like I had seen Bakerella do on her page... I had different stencils of things I wanted to try... and realized that I left them at work! So I just busted out the flower like she did to give it a whirl!

I just used a white cake mix that I had in the cupboard (trying to save money!) so here is how it went...

I started out by taping the paper down to a cookie sheet and then taping the wax paper over that!
Then started to do the first layer...
Then u fill it in with the next color... Once that set in the freezer for about 10 minutes you just peel them off...
I tried to make a pair of flip flops but they did not turn out so hot!

Then I decided to spice up the cupcake batter and try to give it a swirl of two different colors... I started with the blue...
then I put some white in the middle and a little more blue on top...
Look at how perfect the tops of these cupcakes look...
I had to bite into one hot out of oven... minus the frosting because that is my favorite way to have them...
You can see where there were some air bubble in the candy... and it was my first time so next time will be better.. but I am still rather proud of my silly little cakes... it looks a bit like a 7 year old drew them... but I'm ok with that :O)

Sinfully Yours,

Chicken Spaghetti Bake

Hello Hello--

Sorry it has been so long since my last post... I got busy last weekend and with the heat it is unbearable in the kitchen!! Well today's post is not sweet but it is yummy! A co-worker of mine has talked about "Chicken Spaghetti" that is a family recipe... I finally got it from her and decided to try it out, here it goes...
Chicken Spaghetti Bake

3-4 Chicken Breasts -I used 4
16oz pkg Vermicelli- I had bought a 24oz pack on accident.. I just left about 1/4 in the bag if you cannot find Vermicelli it is very similar to angel hair2 cans Rotel -I used 1 can of hot and 1 can original-see the picture below
2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup- I use the 98% fat free-- it really cuts calories and tastes the same as the original, unlike "healthy request" which has a completely different (wacky gross) taste!1lb Velveeta -cut into cubes
1 Bell Pepper chopped
1 stick Butter- I opted for smart balance stick 50/50 see pic below
1 onion chopped

1. In a large pot,boil chicken breasts until done. Shred and set aside.
2. In the same water you cooked the chicken in, cook Vermicelli until
done. Remove, rinse and set aside.

3. In a large pan melt butter and add chopped onion and bell pepper.
Saute until tender.
I tried to give this picture a heart! Because I love it... But then I cut it off somehow :o(
4. Add Rotel and Cream of Chicken Soup to onion/bell pepper mixture. Stir
until blended.
Those Habaneros do the trick if you want to spice something up!!

5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
6. Add Velveeta to your Rotel mixture stir and cook until melted.
7. Once cheesy mixture is melted add chicken and stir then add
Vermicelli. You will need a LARGE pan… this ends up being a huge
9. Transfer to a 9x13 baking dish and cook in oven for 30 min or until
bubbling- I had to use a 11x15 pan and look how full it is!! I also only cooked it for about 20 minutes and it was hot and bubbling..

OK and now for the review... IT IS GOOD!!! Spicy from the HOT Rotel... and cheesey... I know this is not the healthiest but I made healthy choices with the butter and soup! I think you could use less butter too cook the veggies in... and it would be fine! I also think I will half the recipe if I make it again as you can see how big that pan is... Both Jason and I ate it for dinner and I packed it for lunch and we have only eaten....

I think if you have a big family and you like left overs this is a great dish... It really did not take that long to make and it has a good flavor.. I also think for all you non-meat eaters... that you could sub tofu or a chicken subsitute very easily and get good results! I think it would be good with cream of mushroom soup also.... just as a couple variation ideas... It is very good though with that spicy kick!! I recomend you try it if you are up for some spicy cheesy good times!!

Sinfully Yours,
