Chicken Marinara Panini / #SundaySupper

Happy New Year to everyone! Today we are celebrating Easy Supper Recipes as we kick off a month long celebration of National Sunday Supper month! As much as I love to cook and create new recipes, there are also times when all I want is something simple, easy and tasty. That's how this Chicken Marinara Panini came to be. I always have chicken breasts in the fridge, and if you do too, this recipe is definitely for you!  If you cook the chicken the day before, this panini comes together in about 10-15 minutes. Make it in 30 minutes if you cook the chicken as you make the meal. Any way you make it, this Chicken Marinara Panini is sure to become a favorite!

Chicken Breasts
Italian Bread
Butter
Marinara Sauce
Mozzarella Cheese 
Onion


Set panini press to medium high to heat. 

Cook your chicken and let it cool. Slice it lengthwise so it is not as thick. 
Cut 2 slices of bread for each sandwich. Lightly spread butter on  one side of each slice. Make sure the side you spread the butter on is the outside.
Turn the butter sides down and spread marinara sauce on both inside pieces. I have used homemade marinara and store bought marinara. Use what you love!
Top the marinara with shredded cheese on both pieces, and add the onion and chicken to one piece.
Your sandwich is ready for the panini press!
Place on panini press and toast for 7-8 minutes. 
Cut in half and enjoy the goodness of that melty cheese!

Four Ingredient Cheese Ball

If you are looking for a quick and easy appetizer to enjoy as the clock strikes midnight, this 4 Ingredient Cheese Ball is for you! This cheese ball is so easy that the only thing that takes time is letting the cream cheese get soft! This recipe was one of my mother-in-laws favorite things to make for family gatherings, and I hope it will become one of yours! It would be wonderful for football parties too! The original recipe called for it to be rolled in chopped nuts, but the shredded cheese adds a different dimension that is really tasty!


Four Ingredient Cheese Ball 

( printable recipe at end of post)
(makes 1 cheese ball)
8 ounces Cream Cheese
6.5 ounces Spreadable Cheddar
2-3 ounces Chopped Onion
3-4 ounces Mexican Style Finely Shredded
                  Four Cheese Blend

Place softened Cream Cheese and Cheddar in to a bowl. Mix together with a fork. I used Kaukauna Spreadable Cheddar, which is found in the deli area of the grocery.
Add the onion and mix together.
Roll the mix together into a ball.
Spread the shredded cheese mix onto a cutting board or a bowl. Roll the cheese ball over the cheese, patting it onto the ball as you roll it around. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
Serve with your favorite crackers. Thanks for joining me today!

Have a Happy New Year! See you next year!

Caprese Dip / #SundaySupper

As the holidays get closer, things can get hectic and crazier than usual. It's always nice to be able to relax and enjoy an evening with family and friends, taking a break from the usual craziness to just unwind. For me, that often means throwing things together from the fridge and pantry and coming up with appetizers, dips, sandwiches, and whatever you feel like munching on. Nothing fancy, everything fun! That's how this Caprese Dip came about. Of course I love Caprese Salad, and I had seen Caprese Dips around the internet, but I wasn't sure how they were put together. I really didn't want to know. I thought it would be fun to come up with something myself. So, one night when some friends dropped by, I made Caprese Dip, and we ate the entire thing in one setting. It was so good, that the next day I wrote down as much as I could remember, made a few changes and made it again so I could share this recipe with you! I hope you like it!


Caprese Dip
 (feeds 6-8)
(printable recipe at end of post)

1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons fresh Basil, chopped 
1 1/4 cups fresh Roma Tomatoes, chopped
1 3/4 cup Sour Cream
8 ounce Cream Cheese, softened
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
1/2 cup fresh Mozzarella Balls-Pearls
6" round spring form pan
oven safe jar

Preheat oven to 375°.

Chopped tomatoes into small bite sized pieces.
Chop basil into small pieces.
Mix together the sour cream and cream cheese in the mixer, then add in 1/4 cup of the chopped basil and 1 cup chopped tomatoes.  Add garlic powder and pepper. Add the mozzarella balls, holding out 10-12 to garnish the top. Mix together with a spoon. Place an ovenproof circular dish or jar in the center of a spring form pan.  
Start filling the spring form pan with the dip mix. Garnish the top with some basil and tomatoes. Add a lot of color so it looks like a Christmas wreath. Add mozzarella balls that you held back, to the top. 
Bake for 30-45 minutes. Remove from oven and take knife around the edges of the dip. Let cool completely, then remove jar from the center and release dip from pan. Do not take the dip off the pan. Leave it on the bottom of the pan. You will have water from the tomatoes and the cheese, especially after you remove the jar. Use a crumbled paper towel to sop it up.
Place dip on a large plate and place crackers and bread around the dip. Serve to guests hot or cold.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Strawberry Hummus / #SundaySupper / #FLStrawberry

The holidays are here, which means all the parties and celebrations are about to begin! This is such a fun and exciting time of year! Whether you are hosting your own party, or you are bringing a dish to a get together with friends and family, this Strawberry Hummus is a "must" for your menu. Made with beautiful Florida Strawberries, which are available from November to April, this Strawberry Hummus appetizer brings a new dimension to the classic "party dip"! I know your guests will appreciate that you took the time to serve something that is as good for you as Florida Strawberries. Did you know that just eight medium strawberries contain more vitamin C than one orange, or that they are practically fat free and a good source of potassium? It's all true! The only thing your guests will know is that you are serving them a unique and amazing appetizer that tastes incredible, and they can't stop enjoying it!

Strawberry Hummus
(makes 5 cups)
(printable recipe at end of post)

16 ounces Chickpeas 
1 clove Garlic
1 tablespoon Tahini
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1/4 cup Water
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 pounds Florida Strawberries
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Juice
various Crackers, Veggie Straws, Naan


Cook the chickpeas according to the package directions.

Rinse and trim the strawberries. Take out 3-4 strawberries to use later on top of the hummus. Don't add them to the food processor.

Add all of your ingredients in to a food processor or a blender. Let the food processor do the work of breaking up the strawberries. Don't be worried about over processing the hummus. The more it is blended and mixed, the better it becomes.


Look at those beautiful strawberry pieces! They are so gorgeous!
Place your Strawberry Hummus in the fridge overnight. This gives time for all the flavors to meld together. 

Putting it all together~Using the 3-4 strawberries that you held back from adding to the hummus, dice them into small pieces. 


Place the strawberry hummus into a bowl. I like using the glass bowl so you can see how gorgeous it is.
Place the diced strawberries on the top of the hummus.


Serve with your choice of crackers, Naan bread, veggie sticks, whatever you like.



I hope you enjoy this recipe! Thank you for stopping by!
