Grandmas Crunchy Cheddar Chicken Bake! - Video -


Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful evening. I know its New Years Eve but I still wanted to share this recipe from my Grandma Mary's Collection. Its so easy to make and I know so many of you are always looking for new chicken recipes.. this is a good one! Everything is explained in detail in the video and the recipe is below....remember you can always hit the Print Friendly button too! Hope you enjoy!


Grandmas Crunchy Cheddar Chicken Bake

2 lbs chicken tenders or 4 large chicken breasts
3 cups cheddar cheese, grated ( store bought works ok too )
1/2 cup whole milk
2 sleeves Ritz crackers
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon fresh or dried parsley

Sauce:
1 10 ounce can cream of chicken soup
2 tablespoon sour cream
2 large tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon fresh or dried parsley

Crush crackers.. I like using a rolling pin.  Pour the milk, cheese and cracker crumbs into 3 separate small dishes.  Add the salt and pepper into the cracker crumbs.. mix. Dip each piece of chicken into the milk and then the cheese. Press the cheese into the chicken with your fingers. Then press the cheesy chicken into the cracker crumbs and really press the crackers into the chicken.

Spray large casserole with cooking spray and lay the chicken inside the pan. Sprinkle the dried parsley over the chicken. Cover the pan with tin foil and bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove foil, bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the chicken tenders are golden brown and crispy.

In a sauce pan combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream and butter. Stir it over medium high heat until the sauce is nice and hot. Pour over crunch cheddar chicken.. and enjoy!

I served this with steamed broccoli and my family loved it as always!

Monday Movie Review: Prisoners

Monday, December 30, 2013


Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful night. I am back tonight with a very overdue Movie Review. I have been so busy these past few months that I have not done a movie review in some time. I am totally changing things and starting movie reviews back up. So tonight I am going to talk to you about the movie




 Here's a little about the movie:

PRISONERS, from Oscar (R)-nominated director Denis Villeneuve, stars Oscar (R) nominees Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal in a story that poses the question: How far would you go to protect your child? Keller Dover (Jackman) is facing every parent's worst nightmare. His six-year-old daughter, Anna, is missing, together with her young friend, Joy, and as minutes turn to hours, panic sets in. The only lead is a dilapidated RV that had earlier been parked on their street. Heading the investigation, Detective Loki (Gyllenhaal) arrests its driver, Alex Jones (Paul Dano), but a lack of evidence forces the only suspect's release. Knowing his child's life is at stake, the frantic Dover decides he has no choice but to take matters into his own hands. But just how far will this desperate father go to protect his family? (c) WB


I knew before hitting purchase that this would be a difficult movie to watch. I have young children and I can not imagine the pain that would come from a missing child. However, I thought that watching this movie, I could maybe learn something that could help protect my family. I know that's a stretch for a movie.. but I was hoping. I think this movie will touch any parent who has turned around to not see them. It can happen to us in a second and this movie really made that point. 

I think the performance from Hugh Jackman is the most emotional part he has ever done. I could literally feel his pain through out this movie. This movie totally kept me on the edge of my seat.. and Scott too.We both were sucked into the movie in the first 10 minutes. The intensity from Hugh Jackman alone is Oscar worthy. This movie has tons of twists and turns and does not disappoint. 



I also think Jake Gyllenhaal is sensational, he gives a memorable and gripping performance that is one of his best yet. I was shocked at how much I liked him in this movie. 

Maria Bello and Viola Davis are excellent. They don't huge parts but they are just as gripping mourning for their kidnapped daughters. Terrance Howard is terrific. I totally loved his performance too. Amazing Actors. 

I am giving this movie 


and not 5 because I didn't like the ending which still haunts me days after watching the movie. 

Here's the trailer:



This one one of 2013's best pictures. Don't miss it.

Weekly Grocery Shopping $ Savings $ December-30-2013 - January-6-2014

Sunday, December 29, 2013


Today was shopping day for my household. I decided that for this trip I would buy AS MUCH ON SALE that I could. I totally shopped this weeks sales by going to my local grocery stores online ad ( Ingles ) and planning from that. Plus with what I already had in the house. I made my quick point list with lots of items that I planned on buying. My husband wasn't so happy that his beloved Edies Ice cream was not on sale so he suffered and took the cheaper 2 for $5 Ingles brand. We spent a lot over the holidays and I really really wanted to save on as much as I could and still eat good. I can probably make this haul last for 2 weeks with eating left overs and eating out some. Anyway, sometimes it really pays to shop the sales! Hope you enjoy!

Total Price 167.15


Do you shop the sales at your grocery store or do you just wing it!? Let me know!

Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday Friends! I hope you all are enjoying this beautiful afternoon. Its not too cold here right now ( or maybe I just have the heat turned up too high! ) but it seems like a lovely weekend day. I didn't sleep very well last night but at least I got enough to power me through the day and into the night. I worked a lot around the house yesterday and I have even more to do later today but right now its coffee and catching up with some of my favorite blogs! It was hard to keep up over the busy Christmas days but we are home and now I finally have a little quiet time!

In just a bit I am heading out to return the cracked flat screen tv Jackson got for Christmas. It had to be cracked during shipping so its going to back. Thankfully, we can take it back and get another one right away. I hate it when one of the kids Christmas gifts is messed up. I know how disappointing that can be. So I want to get it fixed today so he can start enjoying it. He is going to go with me to the store to help get that big thing in. I am not even trying to get it back in the box. Nope. I am just putting it in the back seat and when I get to the store we can just put it in a cart and roll it in.

Besides that today is a day of relaxation and I don't really plan on doing anything other than picking up around here. It should be a nice day! Anyway.. I hope you guys had a wonderful holiday and happy new year! I'll be back in just a bit.
