Mini-Blinis

Last week I came upon this recipe over at Cooking During Stolen Moments and it intrigued me, so of course I had to try it out. With butter, cream cheese and cinnamon sugar how could you go wrong!  When you see how they are made this woman is a genius!! They were a little time consuming but oh so worth it. Everyone could not wait until they were out of the oven.  Both my hubby and son burnt themselves from eating them as soon as I took them out. My son said they tasted like cinnamon roll bites.  They were a HUGE hit and my family ate every single one that afternoon. 
Mini Blinis
1 pound thinly sliced commercial white bread
1- 8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar mixed with 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Carefully cut the crust off each slice of bread.
With a rolling pin, gently flatten each slice of bread until it is paper thin.
In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, egg yolks and vanilla until smooth.
Spread a layer of cream cheese mixture onto each slice of bread and roll up jelly roll style.
Roll each piece in melted butter then in the cinnamon sugar mixture. (I cut each roll in half first).
Place on a cookie sheet and freeze for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.  Then transfer them into a freezer bag.
They will hold together better if you do this first.  
When ready to cook  preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes, until lightly golden brown on the edges. 
ENJOY!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
