Yum, Yum, and Yum!

This past weekend I made some cupcakes.

They turned out looking really well but tasting okay.  My dad really liked them.  I just don't think they were sweet enough but they were really moist.  I used this recipe for the cupcakes and this recipe for the icing.  The icing was amazing...but I already knew that from this post.  It seems the things I make that look pretty don't taste as well as the things that are ugly/messy looking.  For example...this...

Yep.  I made that too.  For Uncle Matt's birthday (tomorrow).  Here is the recipe.  We actually haven't tasted it yet but I have a feeling it's gonna be pretty dang good since it looks messy and not very 'pretty'.  Plus how can something not taste good with all that chocolate and caramel on top.  The caramel was ahhhhmazing!!!! (I did taste that!!) 

We (Chad and I) also made this Chicken and Dumpling Casserole and it was THE BEST I've ever had.  For real.  THE BEST.  We will be making this over and over and over again.  The boys even loved it. 

I got this recipe off Facebook posted by Shannon Farley.

Chicken and Dumpling Casserole

The secret of this is not to stir anything. That's what makes your dumplings. When you dish it out, you have your dumplings on top.

2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded ( I use a store bought rotisserie chicken)

2 cups chicken broth

1/2 stick of butter

2 cups Bisquick

2 cups whole milk

1 can cream of chicken soup (the herbed cream of chicken soup if you can find it)

3 teaspoons of chicken granules (I use Wylers)

1/2 teaspoon dried sage

1 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon of salt or more to taste

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Layer 1 - In 9 x 13 casserole dish, melt 1/2 stick of butter. Spread shredded chicken over butter. Sprinkle black pepper and dried sage over this layer. Do not stir.

Layer 2 - In small bowl, mix milk and Bisquick. Slowly pour all over chicken. Do not stir.

Layer 3 - In medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups of chicken broth, chicken granules and soup. Once blended, slowly pour over the Bisquick layer. Do not Stir.

Bake casserole for 30-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown
