Chicken Cordon Bleu Panini


I love sandwiches, and I love Chicken Cordon Bleu, so why not combine them? Quick and easy to prepare - this grilled sandwich will please even the most picky of eaters, especially considering you can adapt the recipe to suit all tastebuds. Don't like Havarti? Try Mozarella or stick with a traditional Swiss.

Serve this alone for a quick lunch or add a side salad or cup of soup for a comforting dinner. However you serve it - just serve it. Fantastic!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Panini
Ingredients: 
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup flour
1 egg, beaten
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
4 b/s thin sliced chicken cutlets
S & P
1 loaf favorite Artisan bread, cut cross-wise into 4 pieces
8 thin slices deli Canadian Bacon
4 slices Havarti cheese
(favorite condiment - honey mustard, mayo, etc.)

Directions:
Heat the olive oil and butter in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.  In three shallow, rimmed bowls place flour, egg and bread crumbs in each dish.  Season the chicken with S & P and dredge each piece in the flour, then egg, then bread crumbs.  Place the breaded chicken into the pan and saute for about 4 minutes per side until thoroughly cooked.  Transfer the chicken to a separate plate and set aside.

Preheat a panini grill to medium-high heat.  Prepare sandwiches by coating insides of bread with favorite condiment if desired, then layer with chicken, Canadian bacon and cheese.  Grill about 3-5 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Beach Party Cupcakes AND 100th Blog Post

I saw these cupcake pops on Bakerella's site and just knew I had to use the idea sometime. When thinking about something fun to make for 4th of July I thought about something summery that the kids would enjoy so obviously a cute cupcake would do the trick and what's more fun in the summer than fireworks and swimming? Not much, I'll tell you that! Knowing that everything is fireworks galore on the 4th I decided to go the swimming route and make these cupcakes. Not only were they adorable, it really only took an extra 10 minutes to decorate than if I were to frost a plain-jane cupcake. Surf's Up! (aw man, I wish I had made some surfin little dudes! I'll have to remember that for next time!)

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.
