Sour Cream Coffee Cake RECIPE FOR TODAY

Sour Cream Coffee Cake
by Natalie


Cake Ingredients:
• 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
• 1 cup sugar
• 2 eggs
• 2 cups flour
• 1 tsp. baking soda
• 1 tsp. baking powder
• 1/2 tsp. salt
• 1 (12 oz.) container of sour cream (I use reduced-fat)
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Topping Ingredients:
• 1 tsp. cinnamon
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 1/4 cup brown sugar
• 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

In a mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs to the mixture, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream and vanilla. Mix until combined.

Then pour half of the batter into a greased 9″x13″ baking pan, and sprinkle with half of the topping. Add the remainder of the batter on top, and sprinkle with the remaining topping. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

The batter will be pretty sticky, so I recommend adding your second layer in small spoonfuls all over the pan (rather than just adding the remaining batter in one big blob). This may make it easier to spread out over the cinnamon-sugar layer.

Take a quarter cup of extra virgin olive oil, and one pat of unsalted butter and place in a bowl with several cloves of minced garlic. Microwave this mixture for about 1:30 seconds and let stand.

Prepare the hens by rinsing, and patting dry with several paper towels. (Trick learned by Julia Child herself). Use a brush to coat the hens with the extra virgin olive oil mixture, and then generously season with kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and parsley.

Season the bottom side first, then flip and repeat. Roast in the oven for about 55 minutes or until done, and let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Delicious!!

1 Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
1 can (13 1/2 oz) coconut milk, shaken well
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sweetened shredded or flaked coconut, toasted
1 cup whole milk
1/2 vanilla bean, split (or 1 teaspoon vanilla)
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
5 large egg yolks
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp. coconut extract
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, well chilled
1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp dark rum (or 1 teaspoon vanilla)
1/4 cup sweetened shredded or flaked coconut, toasted
1 oz. white chocolate, shaved

Heat oven to 450°F.

Unroll pie crust onto cooking parchment or wax paper. Brush a small amount of coconut milk onto dough (just enough to moisten it). Sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon of the toasted coconut evenly on dough, then press it lightly into dough, just enough to make it stick.

Sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon toasted coconut onto bottom of 9-inch pie plate, then form dough into plate. Prick bottom and side with fork. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown. Cool.

Heat the remaining coconut milk, the whole milk, 1/2 cup toasted coconut, vanilla bean, 1/3 cup of the sugar and the salt to a simmer in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes to dissolve sugar.

In a separate large bowl, with whisk, beat the egg yolks, remaining 1/3 cup sugar and the cornstarch until well combined. Gradually beat the simmering liquid into the yolk mixture to temper it, then return the entire mixture to saucepan, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula. Discard vanilla bean.

Heat the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, beating constantly with whisk, 5 to minutes or until mixture is thickened.

Remove from heat; beat in the coconut extract and butter. Pour into the cooled crust; press a sheet of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the filling and refrigerate until the filling is cold and firm, at least 3 hours or overnight.

Just before serving, beat the cream and sugar in a chilled bowl using electric mixer at medium speed until soft peaks form. Add the rum and continue to beat until slightly stiff peaks are formed. Spread or pipe the whipped cream over the chilled filling. Sprinkle 1/4 cup toasted coconut and shaved chocolate over the top. Store in refrigerator.

Chicken and Mushroom Quesadillas

1 Package of Grilled Chicken (or if you have leftovers)
1 Small bag of Shredded Cheese
1 Small can of Mushrooms or fresh
1 Package of Tortillas (I used flour this time)

Cut up your chicken and your mushrooms really small. I heat both sides of the tortillas before I start adding stuff on, if you don't have time or don't want to, it probably doesn't make that big of a difference. I add a small hand full of shredded cheese and then the chicken and mushrooms and then just a little more cheese to seal both sides. Then add the top tortilla and cook until both sides are golden brown and everything in the middle is hot and melted. I normally have my stove on Medium heat because if you have it too hot the tortillas cook too quickly while you are adding the good stuff! It's a quick and easy snack, or meal depending on how much you eat.

Cheesy Pepperoni Twist Rolls RECIPE FOR TODAY

Image may contain: food
Cheesy Pepperoni Twist Rolls

Now this one can be with as much or as little cheese and pepperoni as you want , its up to you, as long as the dough is covered its fine

Frozen bread dough
Mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese
Olive oil
Italian seasoning
1/4 cup tomato sauce (Optional)
8 slices bacon
1 small to medium onion if desired diced finely

Loosely cover the frozen bread dough with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to thaw for a few hours at room temperature. When the dough is completely thawed it will be slightly puffed up.
Here's a tip: Spray the plastic wrap with cooking oil, or brush it with cooking oil and lay it, oiled side down on the bread dough. This allows the bread dough to rise and move easily under the plastic wrap without it sticking or holding back the dough.
cook and crumble bacon
Roll dough out to an approximately 11 x 11 inch square. One frozen dough log makes one pepperoni roll.

Brush dough with olive oil or whatever cooking oil you prefer. Lay pepperoni on the dough covering entire surface. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese.

Next, sprinkle it with shredded Parmesan cheese and lightly sprinkle it with Italian seasoning. Add a sprinkling of garlic salt (optional). add crumbled bacon and finely diced onion if so desired.

Roll up the dough starting at one edge of the square.
Place rolls on baking sheet, leaving space between them if you are making more than one roll. Brush some melted butter on top of the uncooked pepperoni roll(s).

Bake at 375 degrees F for approximately 15 to 25 minutes. Oven temperatures and times may vary. When done, the top of the rolls should be golden brown and you should be able to make a tapping sound on the crust with your fingernail (the same as when baking bread). We brush garlic butter on while cooking and oh so good

Make sure you allow your pepperoni roll to cool completely before slicing and serving it.

2 teaspoons fat free ranch dressing
1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 ounce avocado, mashed ( about 1 tbsp.)
1 dash each chili powder, ground cumin, and garlic powder
1 medium-large high-fiber flour tortilla ( with 110 calories or less, like the kind by La Tortilla Factory)
1/4 cup fat-free cheddar cheese, shredded
2 ounces chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
2 slices turkey bacon, cooked crisp
nonfat sour cream, salsa

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion and pepper until softened, 3 - 5 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix ranch dressing with hot sauce. In another small bowl, mix avocado with chili powder, ground cumin, and garlic powder.
Lay tortilla flat and spread avocado mixture on one half of the upward-facing side. Evenly top avocado with 2 tablespoons cheese, followed by the chicken, bacon, and cooked veggies. Top with ranch mixture and remaining 2 tablespoons cheese.
If needed, clean skillet. Re-spray skillet and return to medium-high heat. Place the half-loaded tortilla flat in the skillet and cook for 2 minutes. Fold the bare half of the tortilla over the filling with a spatula and press down lightly to seal. Carefully flip and cook until crispy, about 3 minutes.
Slice into wedges, and if you like, serve or top with sour cream and salsa!
