Beyond Blogging for Scrapbookers form Shimelle

I love the fact that I can take this class when I have the time and space to do so . So even though the live class has already run I have access to the prompts,forum and videos like these. I thought this may be useful if you are looking for things to blog about .( Even the best of us get stuck sometimes)
You can still post your projects in the Linky List below and here's the link if you are interested in this or the other
classes at Shimelle.  Also on Fridays there is usually a giveaway.

Birda Mae's Recipe Corner:Asian Honey Sesame Chicken

                                                  I got this image from Here

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 pounds meaty chicken pieces
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoon  Cricsco
  • 2 Tablespoon seasame oil
  • 2 Tablespoon honey
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger
Directions:

  1. Rinse chicken pat dry.  Combine all remaining ingredients in a large resealable food storage bag. Add chicken. Seal. Refrigerate 4hours or overnight, turning once or twice.
  2. Heat oven to 350oF.  Pour 1/2 cup marinade into 13x9x2 inch glass baking dish.  Add chicken.
  3. Discard remaing marinad.  Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center and reaches an internal temp of 165o.


Variation:
I use chicken wings , increased the amount of honey to 1/4 cup and omitted the green onion
The kids absolutely loved it! I will be making this again with chicken thighs since they are  cheaper than wings.

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
