Chicken Parmesan

I was inspired by my lovely friend Emily yesterday when she posted on Instagram about a delicious chicken pot pie her daughter made from a Progresso Recipe Starter.  This triggered my memory of the Progresso Recipe Starters I bought a month ago.  (Still working on inventory of my pantry....)
So I got started.  I'm kind of a make it up as I go gal.  I follow recipes but I like to add my own touches so I can post them on my blog and claim them....ahem I mean so that my food is deliciously my own.
This is what I ended up with

For the chicken you need
Approx 2 lbs chicken breasts (I cut them into smaller pieces for my kids)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I used Walmart brand)
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cube butter
1 clove of garlic minced
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1 can Progresso Recipe Staters Fire Roasted Tomato

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Rinse the chicken and cut it up (if you want it also cooks faster this way). Melt the butter and add the garlic.  Dip chicken pieces in the butter mixture then place them in a ZipLock bag with the breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.  Shake it up well and place in single layer in 9x13 dish.  I did not grease the pan no need with the butter on the chicken.
Place in preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes turning the chicken once.  Then pour Progresso Recipe Starters over the chicken and top with cheese and bake for 10 more minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken juice runs clear.
I served mine over whole wheat thin spaghetti with broccoli on the side.  My kids inhaled it and I'm still waiting for husband to come home to try it out.  I loved the flavor and  I loved that it didn't require a lot of extra seasoning.  The recipe starter had lots of flavor but it wasn't overwhelming.  Hope you enjoy it too.

I was not compensated in any way for this post.  I just like to cook and when I find something awesome I like to share.  And maybe if some from Progresso reads this they will send me more LOL!

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot.  It's a gift I know. I digress.

Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you.

All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great.
You will need:
3 Tablespoons Baking Soda
8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide
1 drop dish soap
Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longer effective due to …

Master Bedroom Makeover Board and Batten

I highly recommend a few items although you don't HAVE to have them it just makes this project go so much faster.  I bought a pancake compressor with three nail guns included saved me on this project and a miter saw.  I bought both from Home Depot and they didn't pay me to say that it is just where I happen to shop.  I actually had this all measured out and went to Home Depot and they cut the mdf primed boards for me.  However I later purchased the miter saw and was then able to cut things right here at my house.  The nail gun I used is a 16 gauge gun that can shoot nails up to 3 inches.  I used a 2.5 inch nail to cover the thickness of the board and wall. Ok so I recommend deciding how you want your boards spaced first and measure and mark on the wall where you want them.  I tried to do every 16 inches because that is how far apart my studs were but then I realized my wall wasn't an even length and so I have some that look a little off on the ends.  Lesson learned..... You…

Fun Christmas Crafts for Kids

I am kind of a crafty person.  I am not good at coming up with my own crafts but I am really great at copying others work and making it my own with my own little touches.  So when my friend recommended I try making toilet paper snowmen I jumped all over that idea.  My kids are on year round school and we are off track right now and I am desperate to entertain them.  I took my question to Pinterest and found this great idea.  I then ventured to Hobby Lobby and our mission was underway.

We also went to Target and got the cheapest TP available because I didn't want to use my expensive super soft kind for a craft (I know call me crazy but I'm weird about my TP).

Supplies:
2 Rolls of TP per snowman
jewels or buttons for eyes and mouth
black pom poms for the front "buttons"
orange pom pom for the nose
ric rac ribbon for the hat
ribbon for the scarf
ribbon to tie around end of hat
snowflake or pom pom for hat
felt sheet for hat (we used black)
white broadcloth to wrap around TP rolls
