Baked Chicken Nuggets
My oldest son loved these! My younger (picky eater) son wouldn't even try one :-( Hubby loved them. I used panko crumbs instead of italian bread crumbs. I added 1 tsp each of old bay, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. I cut up the chicken and let it marinate in buttermilk for about 30 minutes. I skipped the butter, the buttermilk was all it needed. **Tip***Preheat your pan in your oven. This will quickly brown and crisps the nuggets. Turn them about 1/2 way through to brown both sides.****

Banana Banana Bread
This is by far the best banana bread recipe I have ever tried. I tweeked it a bit, by adding 1 tsp of vanilla, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 3/4 cup walnuts and I took another reviewers suggestion and brushed the batter with a brown sugar glaze (1 tbsp water, 3 tbsp brown sugar, mixed). I used my potato ricer to mash the bananas, propably not necessary but it was fun :-) Tip: Add the walnuts to the flour mixture before you fold in the wet mixture. The flour keeps the walnuts from sinking to the bottom of the batter. I used my mini loaf pan, baked it for 350 for ~40 minutes. The entire family agreed it was delicious (hubby is a chef so his approval doesn't come easily). I will be tossing out all my other BB receipes..this is a true keeper!

Sugar Cookie Frosting
I've used this recipe for about 20 years. I think I got it from an old Pillsbury cookbook my mom had when I was a kid growing up. Super easy! I whip the shortening in my mixer for a minute and then add the powdered sugar gradually. I mix the vanilla in the milk so it gets evenly distributed. I add the milk after I've added about two cups of sugar and then add the remaining sugar to the desired consistency. I divide it in little bowls and color. I usually make a double batch when we make Christmas cookies and be sure to save some white for Santa's beard and snowmen!
