Chicken Alfredo Pasta

Chicken alfredo is one of our favorite family dinners... this screams comfort food for my family. Kailee has been taking more of an interest in learning to bake and cook. She just loves the idea of being in the kitchen with her mom and I LOVE the idea of her helping me in the kitchen too.





You Will Need:

4 Cooked Organic Chicken Breast
1 Box Cooked Noodles (non-gmo)
2 1/2 Cups Organic Milk (ours is raw)
3 tbsp Organic Minced Garlic
1/4 Cup Organic Butter
4 tbsp Organic Flour
1 Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese (not pictured)
1 Can Organic Peas (not pictured)
1 1/2 Cup Organic Chicken Broth
Dried Parsley
Salt & Pepper, to taste



Start by boiling water for you noodles, once boiled add noodles until cooked throughly 


Melt butter in skillet


While melting butter, add your garlic (I like extra garlic, but you can add or take out whatever amount you wish)


Add flour and allow to cook for 1 minute to get rid of the "floury" taste


Add milk and bring to a boil, watching and stirring often (I salt and pepper at this stage and end)


Add cheese


Taste. If you need more salt/pepper add it


Nice and thick sauce.. 


Add parsley


Whisk together (keep it cooking)


Add noodles and stir well (this should still be cooking)


Cut up chicken (I am using left over chicken)


Add chicken to the sauce, and peas


This was so good, you can take out the peas if you do not want them and added cherry tomatoes or just leave it as is. ENJOY!

Homemade Gogurts

Growing up gogurts were always my favorite yogurt snack, I know I know not super healthy! I get it however as a child I never knew but now I know and fixed the "issues". I love making my homemade crockpot yogurt, it is one of my favorite things to cook/make for the family. For this recipe I used organic strawberries (I froze myself), organic banana (I froze myself), and chocolate cacao. I wanted to make a mixed berry one however I ran out of blueberries that morning when Kailee made oatmeal and put blueberries in them instead of sugar. You do not have to add honey to this recipe however I feel like it adds a health benefit for the children. Here I have pictured just regular organic honey, however I used organic raw honey (I ran out and did not take the picture until after I used it all). Raw honey has a ton of health benefits. We use it for coughs, sore throats, colds, added to our plain yogurt and much much more. Enough about raw honey, you can do your own research on this topic.





You Will Need:

1 1/2 Cups Homemade Yogurt
1 tbsp Gelatin
1 Cup Frozen Fruit (any)
1 tbsp Organic Raw Honey



Add your fruit and gelatin to your blender (I am using my Vitamix- my all time favorite Anniversary gift!)


Add honey


And finally add yogurt 


Blend on high until all is blended through well (I had to mix it around a couple times because some of the strawberries were stuck together)


Looks pretty! I love the color (no added dyes here!)


Now to the fun part!! 
I had my hubby help. We are filling our Zipzicle bags


Fill to the line only, we places ours in an old yogurt container to keep them from falling over while freezing


Strawberry banana, same process however I add 2 cups of yogurt to get more pouches filled (the kids LOVE THESE!) We also did a banana chocolate one (just add cacao powder, 2-4 tbsp and banana) 


Ready for the freezer, label and freeze overnight (be sure they are standing up not laying flat)

Carrot Cake

Carrot cake was one of my favorite recipes to make with my grandmother growing up. Now we did not always see eye to eye or see each other but when we saw my grandmother it was all about potato soup and carrot cake (our 2 favorite things to make). I have not made this recipe since 2007 when I had my first born Kristopher. My second born, Kailee, has been really into learning how to bake as of lately so I figured what better recipe to start with then something my grandmother and mother showed me sooooo many years ago when I was her age.

You Will Need:

2 Cups Organic Flour
1 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Organic Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Organic Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Organic Ground Clove
3 Organic Pasture Raised Eggs
1 1/4 Cup Organic Apple Sauce
1 1/2 Cup Organic Sugar
1 tsp  Baking Soda
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Real Salt

Cream Cheese Frosting: 

8 oz pkg. Organic Cream Cheese
1 stick Organic Butter
1 1/2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar


Blend together your eggs, sugar, and applesauce


Add vanilla


Once blended add your dry ingredients


Blend until well incorporated 


Grate your carrots, this honestly took us forever because stupidity we used BABY CARROTS!



Fold in carrots


Pour even amounts into your cake pans


Time to make your frosting; add cream cheese and butter into your kitchenaid mix well


Add vanilla and powdered sugar until the flavor is to your liking (I added the amount above... I do not like super sweet frosting) then I folded in the nuts


Spread onto cake


Put in fridge until frosting is set


Enjoy!

Crockpot Hot Chocolate

The BEST hot chocolate I have ever had or made! This hot chocolate has become a VERY traditional drink around the holidays and winter time. We find that we have to make sure to have the ingredients on hand and ready for whenever we want hot cocoa and boy it does not disappoint. Winter this year has been absolutely horrible here in Ohio, not to sure why but oooeee I am over it. Needless to say my crockpot has been getting a workout with hot chocolate and apple cider. I keep telling myself, it is almost over, you can make it through the -2 degree weather! But it is very hard to do since it never gets this cold here; in the 6 years I lived here it has never been this cold.




You Will Need:

Homemade Marshmallows
6 Cups Organic Raw Milk
14 oz. Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk
2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Cup Organic Heavy Cream
2 Cups Soy Free Chocolate Chips





Add milk, heavy cream and vanilla to the crockpot



Add chocolate chips


Add condensed milk


Cook on low for 2 hours, stirring often. Before serving whisk well to break up any chunks of chocolate
