Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

 
Overnight oats have been my go-to breakfast this summer.  It's been great to just go out in the yard and add blueberries or blackberries from our bushes into the jar each day.  But fall is on the way, and what a great way to transition into it than with these Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats from Taste of Home?

I like to layer my jars, so I started with half of everything.  Oats first, salt, cinnamon next.  Then I topped that with 1/2 a teaspoon of chia seeds.  Next came the apple and raisins. Repeat once more.  Then I pour in the milk, which in my case  was almond milk.

While I was doing all this, I had some pecans toasting in a pan on the stove, the last little bit I had left from another recipe. Maybe 10 pecan halves.  Note to self: never turn your back while toasting nuts.  I went to give the pan a shake, and the bottoms were burnt.  Into the trash they went. You could also use shelled pumpkin or sunflower seeds if you want some crunch.

The next day, I enjoyed this out on the patio, feeling like I had the best of both worlds.  Sunny, 78 degrees, another whole week of summer vacation ahead of me, spooning up a delicious taste of fall. Thank you so much to Sarah F. for sharing her recipe, as well as some great tips on apples in the Sept./Oct issue!

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!

Southern Fried Chicken Strips

  Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

I've been making this recipe for over 5 years now.  My guys saw an advertisement from a pizza chain for a Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie and they asked if I could make one. Since I didn't have an ovenproof skillet or pizza pan at the time, I searched the web for one I could do in a cake pan.    I found this recipe on That's So Yummy and it was perfect since I only had 1 egg. This is a great fix for a chocolate chip cookie craving without making a huge batch, scooping dough and then babysitting cookie sheets! Most often I make it with semisweet chocolate chips, but sometimes I switch it up and and use some of the speciality ones that I can't seem to resist buying, like Sea Salt Caramel. Though the directions say to cool it completely, we like ours warm, topped with a scoop of ice cream, sometimes a drizzle of hot fudge sauce.   Yield: 8 Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Print Recipe With Image Without Image Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake ingredients
