There are still so many different recipes that I want to try and it really does not help that I keep adding to it.
This month I started off by making Cherry Vanilla Almond Cupcakes for my sorority’s bid night. I doubles the batch thinking that I would get about 30 cupcakes, which is about the perfect amount to make for them, but I ended up getting almost 50 cupcakes that I had made from the batch! Now, don’t get me wrong they were some really really good cupcakes, but if you do not need to make that many, I would suggest not doubling the mix and just using the recipe straight up. If you are not a fan of Cherry flavoring, I would suggest not using this recipe either because the cherry flavor overpowers the vanilla and the almond.
The other recipe that I made this month was Caprese Balsamic Grilled Chicken. Except, living in a two bedroom college apartment I do not really own a grill so I just cooked the chicken on the stove (which still worked really well). I also skipped the whole basil ingredients of the recipe. You do not have to use a lot of the balsamic dressing if you are not into the taste of it all. I know for me, I am still trying to branch myself out of the whole only ranch as a salad dressing situation, so I used only a little bit to cover the chicken. It also cooks out a little bit, so you don’t really taste it. I’m not a big fan of cooked veggies, so I put my cheese on it to melt then the balsamic then when it was finished I topped it with tomato. It was super yummy and a delicious way to eat a plain jane piece of chicken.
Stay tuned for next month, when I try a few different recipes with pumpkin to start the fall 🙂
