I chose the BBQ Beer Chicken recipe because I really wanted to break in my new crock pot that I got for Christmas. What better way than to test out another Pinterest recipe? I also had a mini stock pile of BBQ sauce that I had gotten this summer when it was on sale with coupons. Plus I still had Guinness leftover from the Shepherd's Pie a couple weeks ago. The ingredients are simple (for exact recipe, click here):
- BBQ Sauce - any type any flavor (I used Kraft)
- 1 bottle of beer - any type any flavor (I just happened to use Guinness)
- Chicken breasts (I only used 3 since it's just me)
- Onion powder
- Fresh minced garlic (I used 3 cloves)
I've also had a major attack of the sweets lately so I decided to make something to quench that craving by using ingredients I already had in my pantry. I opted to make the Pumpkin Spice Bread that I had pinned onto my Food Porn board on Pinterest. The recipe was for 2 loaves which I didn't want to make as I live alone and that would be just too tempting. So I had to fudge the recipe a bit to make one loaf. So here's my recipe which I renamed - Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread.
- (1) 15 oz. can of pumpkin
- 1 1/2 C sugar
- 1/2 C water
- 1/2 C vegetable oil (I used Safflower Oil)
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 C flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 bag of chocolate chips (I used Nestle Toll House morsels)
I had a sampling to see how it tasted and it was delicious! The chocolate chips was definitely a great addition and I pulled a Paula Deen and put butter on my piece. That definitely hit the spot and my sweet tooth is satiated for tonight anyway.
