Honey Curry Chicken!

This was really good, I made it a bit too spicy but all around delicious!!

You'll need:
3 TB butter
1/3 C Honey
1/4 C yellow mustard
1 TB Curry powder
1 tsp. Chili powder ( I used a dash and it was hot!)
1 1/2 lbs. chicken diced

In 8x8 casserole dish mix all the ingredients excluding chicken until well blended. Add chicken and stir to coat chicken. Cover with foil and bake at 375 for 30 min., remove foil and bake for another 30 min.

Serve over rice. This came out to serve about 5. ( 2 adults, 2 kids, 1 adult leftover) It's really good! Thank you Kristyn for sharing this great recipe.

Sorry this is blurry! This is after we dished ourselves.

Creative Juices were flowing!

Look how cute Hannah's hair is! I wanted to do something different and here you go. I did a ziz zag part and then the puff braid which is just segmented hair from elastic to elastic then a ponytail at the end. If you want to know where I got the butterfly clip click HERE. I love their site!!!!

My Favorite Banana Bread Recipe

I just have to share my favorite recipe for banana bread since I just made it today. It makes two loaves. Feel free to experiment with add-ins, chocolate chips, nuts... Have fun with it!

6 large ripe bananas- mashed
2 1/3 C sugar
1C (2 sticks) butter softened

4 eggs
3 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350. Combine bananas, sugar and butter. Cream until blended. Add eggs and beat until mixed. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until well blended. Spray bread pans and divide mix into both pans. Bake for 1 hour. If you're using darker pans reduce cooking time by 10 min. so you don't over bake it.
This picture just doesn't do it justice, but here you go!

Let me know if you try it!

By the way...

That dinner I talked about earlier wasn't very good so I decided not to post it. Also, Marc didn't have anything worse than a bad cold.

If you stop by, please feel free to leave a comment! I love reading the comments you all have.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
