Back to Blogging / New Years Resolution / Two Recipes

Image result for new year 2019

I love blogging, but I seem to do a bad job of being consistent with it.  But...my New Year's resolution is to cook at least one new recipe per week.  My blog seems like the perfect way to hold myself accountable to that while sharing good recipes with everyone!

This week I made Easy Cheesy Chicken in the Crockpot from Go Grow Go blog and Lemon Cake Cookies from A Cowboy's Wife blog.

Easy Cheesy Chicken in the Crockpot

Ingredients: 
4-6 Boneless Skinless Chicken breast halves
Salt and pepper to taste (I only did pepper because the soup is salty)
1 Teaspoon of garlic powder
1 can of Cream of Chicken Soup
1 Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 can of Cream of Cheddar Cheese Soup (I couldn't find this so I used Campbell's Cheddar Cheese)
8 oz Sour Cream

Preparation:
Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place the chicken in the crock pot. Mix together the three cans of soup and pour over the top of the chicken. Cook on low for about 6-8 hours. Stir the sour cream in right before you serve.

I forgot to take pictures while cooking, but you can see how the chicken just falls right apart.

Lemon Cake Cookies

Ingredients:
1 box lemon cake mix
2 eggs
⅓ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon lemon extract
⅓ cup confectioners' sugar

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 375
Mix cake mix with eggs, oil and lemon extract until well blended.
Drop dough by the spoonfuls into a bowl of confectioners' sugar.
Roll them around until they're lightly covered.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 6-9 minutes, til golden.




I only tasted one because I am bringing the rest to work tomorrow.  They are delicious and lemon-y!

What are your New Year's resolutions?  Have you kept to them so far?

I'll have to give the lemon cookies a try. They sound so good!

I got an instapot, and need to learn to use it more.

Chicken is always a win at our sea. Yeah, pffft to resolutions here. If I want something done I do it no matter the time of year.

A recipe a week sounds like a reasonable number to commit to! (Just an FYI, you should just link to the blogs so people have to visit to get the actual recipes. That way you're not violating copyrights.) Your own photos are great though!

So nice to see you back!

These both sound delicious! Thanks for the recipes. I haven't made any resolutions but I did pick a word for the new year. PUSH, I need to push myself to do things!

Have a fabulous, healthy and happy New Year. 😎

First, I want some lemon cookies. ;) Second, for whom did you cook all those chicken breasts? Do you cook ahead and store it? Good luck on your New year's resolution! ~ M

Happy New Year! Lemon cookies sound delicious. And who doesn't love a good easy weeknight dinner. We love our crockpot.

Great recipes! I never seem to make resolutions.

Sherry Ellis said...

Both of those recipes look good. If only I had more time to cook! :)

Those cookies look amazing! I have been trying to exercise at least 20 minutes every day. I haven't done it EVERY day, but more days than not, so I'm calling that a win!
