BBQ and Ranch Chicken

This is SUPER easy and its great for when I'm in a bind and don't have much time to prepare a huge meal (like when Mason is having one of those days).

All you do is pour Ranch and BBQ sauce over some chicken breasts and pop them in the oven. I usually use frozen chicken (easier) and cook them at 400 degrees for about an hour. If not frozen, then they should only take around 30 minutes.

You can serve with rice, potatoes, or as a wrap with some lettuce and black beans. But my favorite thing to do is cut up the chicken and serve as a salad with bow-tie pasta. YUM!

Sopapilla Cheesecake

I made this Tuesday night for a Girls Night Out with some ladies in my ward. I saw the recipe on Good Things Utah that morning, and knew I had to give it a try. Anything that has cream cheese, crecents, and sugar has to taste good. And I was right, John has already put this one on his favorite list.
Hope you like!


2 packages crescent rolls
8 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cube (1/2 cup) real butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 can (12-16 oz) fruit topping (apple, cherry, blueberry, etc.)

Press 1 package crescent rolls into 9 x 13 inch pan
Mix cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar and vanilla; spread over rolls
Place 2nd package of crescent rolls on top of mixture (pat thin to cover)
Melt butter; mix with 3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon then pour over top, and spread to edge
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes until brown
Serve with fruit topping

Do not cover tightly or it will get soggy
