Homemade Cream Of Chicken Soup Mix

      So many of my recipes call for cream of chicken soup and I am tired of running to the grocery store all the time to pick some up that I decided from now on, I am going to make my own.  It turns out it is really easy to make and stores well and tastes so much better than the canned stuff you can buy.  I made up some and used it in my creamy chicken and rice soup that I made for supper last night.

      Besides hating to run to the grocery store to buy cans of cream of chicken soup, I also hate some of the ingredients that are in the cans.  There is a LOT of sodium, MSG and other things I just can't pronounce.  We are working hard  trying to eliminate a lot of artificial things and are moving away from store-bought mixes and cans.

 Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup Mix 

2 c. non dry milk powder
3/4 c. corn starch

1/2 tsp. parsley flakes
1/4 tsp. pepper

      Combine all the ingredients together in a medium-large bowl and stir well.  Transfer the mix into a quart sized jar and put the lid on it until you are ready to use.

      To use: combine 1/3 cup of the mix and 1 1/4 cup of chicken broth together in a sauce pan. (You can use water instead of chicken broth but I think it tastes so much better using broth.)  Heat over medium-high heat.  Bring to a boil, whisking the entire time.  When it starts to boil, turn the heat down and continue to cook and whisk for about 2 minutes or until it thickens.

     One batch replaces one can of cream of chicken soup. and you double or triple this depending how many "cans" you need.

      Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Very lightly coat a cookie sheet with butter or cooking spray.

      Unroll each cinnamon roll and lay them flat so they are a long strip.  Cut each one in half.  Using one half, wrap one around each sausage link.  Place each one on the cookie sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes or until the cinnamon roll part is golden brown.  

       Drizzle the icing that came with the cinnamon rolls over each one or drizzle them with some pancake syrup, or both!  Yum!

The Best Seasoning Salt Recipe

      Our family tries to be as self-reliant as we can be and try to do most of our cooking from scratch.  Lately I have been mixing up our own spice blends such as my garlic bread seasoning mix, homemade taco seasoning mix, and my ranch seasoning mix.  And today I am sharing how to make seasoning salt at home.
    

      It is so much better than the stuff you buy at stores and goes beautifully on so many things.  Season it on chicken, hamburgers, or even fresh garden tomatoes.  It is a simple and good homemade alternative to store bought seasoned salts.  It can be modified to your own tastes but it's an excellent base.  Just remember as you use it that it is a seasoned SALT so don't use it and add salt also.


The Best Seasoning Salt Recipe


1/4 c. salt
3 T. sugar
1 1/2 T. celery seed
2 T. smoked paprika (you can use "regular" paprika but smoked has more flavor)
1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 1/2 tsp. corn starch (prevents seasoning from caking)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. thyme 

Put all the ingredients into a medium-small bowl.

Chocolate Chip Biscuits

     These chocolate chip biscuits are tender, light, and full of chocolate chips and topped with a sweet glaze.  Southern biscuits just don't get any more delicious!  The chocolate chips in these biscuits give them the perfect touch of sweetness.  The glaze on top adds even more sweetness and you could drizzle on a little or a lot depending on how sweet you want your biscuit.  Go heavy with it and they taste more like a decadent dessert than breakfast.  Nothing wrong with that!

 Chocolate Chip Biscuits

For the biscuits:

2 cups flour
1 c. milk
1 c. chocolate chips (regular or mini) (semi-sweet or milk chocolate) 
5 T. butter
1 T. +1 tsp. baking powder
1 T. sugar
1 tsp. salt


For the glaze:
1 c. powdered sugar
1/8 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla


      
      Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.  Now slice up your butter into small pieces and place them in a large bowl.

   Add in the other ingredients and using a pastry blender or fork, mix everything together well.  Don't worry if there are still butter pieces, they'll melt in the oven.

     As soon as you have a dough, turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll out.  Roll the dough out to about 1/4" thickness, use biscuit cutter to cut the biscuits out. We actually used the ring of a mason jar and it works great!

     Now place biscuits onto an un-greased cookie sheet.  Place the biscuits so they are just touching each other, and they will rise higher than if they were not touching at all.  Bake for 8 minutes.
     And as the biscuits cook you can mix up the glaze, once the biscuits are out of the oven drizzle them with the glaze.  Enjoy!

Old Fashioned Potato Candy Recipe

    Old fashioned potato candy is a recipe that has been around for years.  I remember being a young girl and watching my Mom make it and now I make it for my own children.  The recipe is super easy to make. Other than getting the consistency correct, there is no other way to mess it up.  It is a no-bake candy that was highly popular during the Depression because it was so inexpensive to make.  And for those of you who have never heard of potato candy...no it does NOT taste like mashed potatoes.  It just tastes so good and it's addicting.  You'll keep going back for more!

   Old Fashioned Potato Candy Recipe

 1/2 c. mashed potatoes (leftover mashed potatoes work great)
6-8 c. powdered sugar
2/3-1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla

depression era potato candy, old-fashioned potato candy, potato candy recipe, peanut butter potato candy, 3 ingredient old-fashioned potato candy recipe, Maine potato candy recipe


     Combine your mashed potatoes and vanilla in a bowl.  Add in 4 cups of powdered sugar and mix well.  Continue to add in the powdered sugar, a cup at a time, until the mixture becomes thick.  It took 6 total cups for ours.  The "dough" needs to be thick like cookie dough.

     Once the consistency is right, lay out a piece of wax paper (or parchment paper) and sprinkle some powdered sugar on it.  Roll out your mixture to about 1/4" thick.

The ability of one entity (e.g., an individual, a business, or a country) to produce a good at a lower opportunity cost than another entity can is known as

      Spread the peanut butter out over the entire dough.  We really don't measure out the peanut butter. We just spread it out to the edges and use however much it takes.

    Roll up the "dough" as you would cinnamon rolls.

Easy & Tender Butter Dip Biscuits

    I love biscuits!  I make several kinds of biscuits, such as my soft & light biscuits, my freezer biscuits, and even my potato biscuits.  These right here that I made today are probably my favorite biscuit that I make.  These are super easy to make (no kneading and no biscuit cutter needed) and turn out really thick, buttery, and fluffy.  Our family absolutely loves them and I am sure you will too.  They are soft and tender on the inside and have a nice crust on the outside.

Easy & Tender Butter Dip Biscuits

 2 1/2 c. flour
1 3/4 c. buttermilk
1 stick of butter, melted
1 1/2 T. baking powder
1 T. sugar
1 tsp. salt

     NOTE:  If you are out of buttermilk, you can make your own by adding 1 tablespoon of white vinegar in with your measured milk.  Just stir and wait a few minutes and it will turn into a close resemblance and taste of buttermilk.

      Now, preheat your oven to 450 degrees.  Pour your melted butter into a 8"x8" glass cake pan.  Set aside.

     In a medium bowl, mix together your dry ingredients.

    Slowly pour in your buttermilk.

    Stir until a loose dough forms.  The dough should be a bit sticky.

        Pour the dough into your cake pan.  Butter will probably come up over the top of the dough and that is okay and what you want.

      Take a knife and gently cut the dough into 9 equal squares to make cutting it after easier.

     Place into the oven and cook for 10 minutes and after 10 minutes, rotate the cake pan around and allow it to bake for another 10 minutes.  When they are golden brown, they are done.

Easy Homemade Garlic Bread Seasoning

      I am trying to go to 100% homemade or scratch cooking for my family and one little change I have done is making our own spice blends and seasonings.  Today I am sharing my garlic bread seasoning.  It's just a simple mixture of dried herbs and Parmesan cheese and makes anything you sprinkle extra delicious!  It goes great on bread sticks, French bread, pizza, chicken, etc.  It is so good!

     Place into a pint sized canning jar and store in refrigerator until ready to use.  I like to put a shaker top on my jar to make it easier to use.  It can store in the refrigerator for one month.

    To make garlic bread, put 1 stick of melted butter in a bowl and add in 2 tablespoons of my garlic bread seasoning. Stir.  Cut a loaf French bread in half lengthwise and spread the mixture over both pieces.  Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Place the bread pieces on a baking sheet and bake 3-5 minutes or until the bread is crisp and golden brown.

Fabulous Sugar Free Blueberry Coffee Cake

      I am always on the look-out for good sugar free recipes but they are not so easy to find.  When my hubby or I am craving a new recipe and I cannot find one, I just come up with one on my own.  This is the case for today's recipe.  We wanted a yummy dessert bread but needed it to be sugar free so this is what I created.  It tastes so good and your family won't even miss the "real sugar".

Easy & Delicious Mongolian Beef

    The majority of the recipes that I share here on my blog are recipes I created but today I am sharing a recipe that my 21 year old son Brandon (aka "Bubba") came up with.  He has made it for our family 4 times so far and it turns out wonderful each time.  We all like it and Ron and the boys like it so much that they go back for 2nds and sometimes 3rds.  It heats up well so it is good for leftovers the next day too.  Try it and I am sure it will become a family favorite of yours too.
