Holiday Sprinkle Rolo Pretzels

Holiday Sprinkle Rolo Pretzels

 

Greetings. I hope this post finds you in the Holiday Spirit. I also pray you all had a safe and blessed Thanksgiving. If you happened to visit loved ones outside your home it is recommended that you try to quarantine for the next two weeks. Now that all the logistics are out of the way, I can’t wait to share this easy and festive holiday treat with you all.

I saw a display in Wal-Mart during one of my trips and it featured Rolos on a pretzel, so I decided to take it to another level and add a little holiday cheer. It also serves as a bribing snack for me to get some help with the remaining Christmas decor I have to get up.

If you try this recipe don’t forget to let me know what you think. Happy Holidays! Omniley

Frozen Hot Chocolate

Frozen Hot Chocolate

Greetings! I hope this post finds you well! ‘Tis the season to be Jolly. Hopefully, by now you have your Christmas tree up, if not I’m not judging. In our home, we are on tree number three and I think it’s going to take all of us to decorate this one. I’m so grateful for my son he held a tree for me at work and was so adamant about me seeing it immediately. Once I laid eyes on it it was at that point I knew he knew my style to the tee. I was one proud momma. I was unique in its own special way and seems as if it would fit in the spot perfectly. Once they loaded it in the truck I started to think it wouldn’t fit through the door. I dare not tell him; thankful to God it fits perfect. 

Typically we try to decorate the main tree together while watching a movie and drinking hot chocolate, but the cooler weather disappeared so today I’m going for Frozen Hot Chocolate. I know an oxymoron right…

While if you’ve ever watched Hallmark Christmas movies you would get it!  Last week I tested a recipe out to see what all the talk was about and you can guess it was so delicious. So I’m happy to share my spin on frozen hot chocolate.

The Easiest Southern-Style Cornbread Dressing

The Easiest Southern-Style Cornbread Dressing

Greetings. I hope this post finds you well. As you can tell, we are in full holiday mode in my home. I already have two trees up and am getting ready to start decorating them. The Holidays will definitely be different from those of years past for my family this season. Typically, around the Holidays, memories of my NaNa seem to flood my mind. I was always in awe of how she knew her way around the kitchen, and everything always tasted so delicious. This year, I will reflect on past celebrations with my family and friends because those memories have never been so necessary.

Most of the recipes I share with you all are made with memories of her. I know she is smiling down with this one today. She was known for her extraordinary cooking, and cornbread dressing was in her top 10. She made her delicious cornbread dressing every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I can remember my grandmother and auntie using Stove Top® Stuffing as their secret ingredient for years. So it’s only natural I continue the tradition. Stove Top® Stuffing reminds me of so many happy and grateful times around the dining table. After a year like this, comfort and familiarity will definitely play an integral part in my family celebrations.

This cornbread dressing recipe has been in our family for years. I’ve been hosting for the holidays for the last ten years and during that time I have tweaked this recipe, and now it seems to be even more of a crowd-pleaser.

What is cornbread dressing?

Cornbread dressing is such a simple dish, but it is packed with flavor when prepared with the right spices. Traditional dressing is typically made with cornbread, chicken stock, and a mix of spices. Belle’s Southern Cornbread Dressing is seasoned with sage, black pepper, cream of mushroom, and I love to add Stove Top® Stuffing to take the flavor profile to another level. I consider this dish a sweet and savory dish because I always use sweet cornbread. It brings back memories of my grandpa when he used to eat leftover cornbread and crumble it in a glass of buttermilk, and it was so good.

Because we know the holidays can be busy and stressful, multi-tasking and preparation are vital. After making this dressing for almost 10 years now, I’m happy to share with you Belle’s Southern-Style Cornbread Dressing holiday style. I had taken a lot of the prep work out of your traditional cornbread dressing recipe by using pre-made rotisserie chicken and cornbread. All of the flavor profile is still intact. I love shopping at Walmart for its one-stop-shopping, and I have been utilizing their pickup services since March, and it is such a time saver. You can thank me later. Now let’s get to it.

First, preheat the oven to 350°F degrees and cook your chorizo in a small saucepan on low-medium heat for 3-5 minutes until it is cooked thoroughly, then set it aside.

Crumble cornbread by hand into medium pieces in a large roasting pan.

Add in Stove Top® Stuffing mix (I choose this blend because it already contains perfect seasoning elements); pour 1-½ cups of the chicken broth. Mix well; try to avoid breaking up the cornbread completely.

 

 

Add cooked chorizo, cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, cooked rice, onion and pepper blend, and remaining ½ cup of chicken broth if the mixture is still dry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next add in shredded chicken, poultry seasoning, creole seasoning, black pepper, and chopped egg. Mix well.

Grease 2 9” x 13” pans well and pour dressing mix evenly in each pan. Cover both pans with foil and bake for 35-45 minutes; remove foil. Slice the stick of butter into 1/4“ slices, place over the top of the dressing, and bake for another 20-30 minutes or until a thermometer reaches 165°F.

 

 

 

One of the important keys to tasty cornbread dressing is keeping it moist. I avoid my dressing drying out by adding slices of butter on top during the last 20 minutes of cook time. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now this recipe serves up to 14 people. I don’t normally have a gathering of that size, so when I prepare it for Thanksgiving I usually only bake one pan and place the leftover mixture in a  freezer-safe bag and place it in the freezer and use for Christmas. I hope this recipe becomes a family tradition of yours as it has become with my family. As always thank you for continued support. You all mean the world to me.
