I just received my February/March Taste of Home this past week and there were quite a few recipes I want to try. For this one, I just happened to have everything I needed. As usual I changed it a little to suit my time and ease. (Carol is rubbing off on me, God help us all)
The recipe actually calls for making this in a pressure cooker, but I used the oven instead, baking at 325 for about an hour. That and using honey mustard, I followed everything else to a tee! Well, almost… I used chicken tenders instead of bone-in chicken breasts. THEN, the rest was the same!
Chicken turned out very tender – and loved the sauce that was left in the pan to spoon over the chicken. Along with sides of oven-roasted baby Yukons and asparagus completed the meal perfectly. I thought the honey would overwhelm the dish, but it didn’t in the least. Will make this one again.
My youngest, Nick, had his 30th birthday last week and I couldn’t find mascarpone cheese any where to make his favorite cupcakes. Finally found some yesterday so I made them today for him. These are his favorites so I try to make them up for him. One of the gals he works with 'asked’ him before his birthday if his Mom was going to make those cupcakes! He takes some to her since she loves them also. They are Strawberry and Mascarpone Filled Cupcakes by Giada De Laurentiis.
Took a few minutes to dip some strawberries also…for once the grocery has some decent berries for this time of year…
