Yummy Homemade Marinade

This is kinda random - but I made a really good homemade marinade for chicken tenders last night and thought, ehh...why not share? It's easy, quick, and very tasty. Chris was a big fan!
- 3 T soy sauce
- 2 T honey
- 2 T olive oil (or vegetable oil)
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 T chopped cilantro
*Mix all together and place chicken tenders in baking dish. Cover with marinade and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, but the longer the better. Heat oven to 350 degrees, and cook for 15 minutes, turning half-way through. Enjoy!

 

Weekends Are For Baking!

It was a blueberry muffin kind of morning! I had the Christmas tree lights on, music playing, candles lit - and just awaiting the arrival of my parents and sister. My sweet mother forgot her GPS at home, so they are using map quest... Lord help them!
I decided to have some homemade muffins set for when they got here - blueberry muffins are my Dad's fave! Here is the recipe we have been using for years...straight from Betty Crocker herself :)

3/4 c milk

1 large egg

1/4 c vegetable oil

2 c flour

1/2 c sugar

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp baking powder

1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries

Directions: Preheat over to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, and egg. Add the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder all together and stir. Add blueberries. Bake for 20-25 minutes (I set for 18, and check them then! They were perfect with 20). Serve warm with butter and enjoy!

*Note: batter will be lumpy :)
