Yummy to the 10th power! August 7, 2010

So this year I have begun seriously baking for the farmers market. I have a few items that have gone over VERY well! I can not share the recipes with you as they are family recipes but would love to make up drool! First up is the coffee rings, named such not because they contain coffee…because they do not, but because the original idea is that you would eat them with coffee or tea (though I love them for dessert).

First up the original Pecan Coffee Ring:

And next we have the cheddar braids which are a very soft moist tender bread that I love to tear apart into rolls. I am not a lover of hard crust so this bread is perfect for me!

Now to get your hands on any of these delicious and VERY yummy bread you will just have to come to my local farmers market! I sell at the thursday public market located in Oak Harbor on the beautiful Whidbey Island located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

So when I do something I like to go ALL the way with it! So when one of my co-workers asked me to make a cake for a cancer fundraiser her biker group was doing I was ready to roll! Then I asked what theme she would like for the cake and after a moment of thought came “boobies”! I LOVE IT! And so here I present the “save the tata’s” boobie cake!

OMG! i just made the yummiest dinner ever! it was really simple to make too! since i was making it for just me and hubby i used:

– 2 skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes or strips

– 1 red pepper

– 1 small to medium onion

– 3 or 4 tablespoons honey

– olive oil

– salt to taste

– pepper to taste

– 1 teaspoon oregano

– 1/2 tablespoon parsley

– 1/2 flour

– 1/4 cup water

– 2 cups prepared rice

Now to make it, cut up your onion and pepper into bite size pieces…or whatever size you feel like. I sauted the onions then the red peppers each by themselves in a small amount of olive oil to make sure they were cooked enough, you want them tender but not soft as you are going to put them back in, remove from pan. Add more olive oil to pan and add your chicken, add your salt, pepper, oregano, and parsley and cook in your flavors a bit. Drizzle your honey on the chicken and stir in. After your chicken is fully cooked add your onions and red peppers back in. Saute together for a little longer then add your water, once heated add your flour making sure to blend in immediatly. Once everything is fully cooked your done! Just throw on a bed of rice and you have a yummy meal!

Now to finish eating mine!!!
