Now, the recipe calls for grilling, but since it’s still winter (barely… hurry up spring!) I did not want to grill. So stovetop skillet it is! The chicken may not have been as “blackened” as it should be, but it was deliciously cooked and perfectly timed to seal all the juices and tastes inside. I’ll definitely be making this recipe again. Thumbs way up!
Not as great as the ones that you can get over at Mimi’s Cafe in Chesterfield, MO. Be sure to check them out one day if you’re in the St. Louis area!
I won’t be making this one again, and I’ll stick to my scrambled eggs in the morning (if I’m cooking them that is!).
These recipes are paired with A Ghost Story
For this post I decided to do something a little different. First, I wanted to make breakfast on Black Friday - so I found this pancake recipe and said "hey why not?" Then I didn't want to just put one thing in this post, so I picked a couple random recipes that looks simple enough to throw together. And we got: Swedish pancakes, banana pudding, spicy pumpkin seeds, and southern pimento cheese spread. If that's not a smorgasbord I don't know what is. Enjoy!
taste these, but I think I'll stick to the fluffy pancakes that I'm used to and will always love.
Thumbs to da side

Spicy Pumpkin Seeds
This was even easier than the pudding. Toss pumpkin seeds in sauce and spice and bake in the oven. That's all there is to it!
Thumbs up for the easiness (they are pretty good too!)

I'm not going to lie to you, this recipe is not in my cookbook. Why did I make it you ask? Well, I pulled up the wrong "Banana Pudding" recipe on my phone while grocery shopping and decided to just go with it. As usual, pudding recipes aren't difficult at all. I layered some finished pudding with Nilla wafer, Reddi Whip, and some fresh banana slices.
One thing I would try different is using milk instead of sweetened condensed milk. It was just way too sweet for me. But the finished product
Dessert - Fruit
Southern Pimento Cheese Spread
Pimento Cheese spread has been one of my favorite dips for a long time now. 1. Because it's super easy with only three ingredients and 2. It's cheese based. So when I saw this recipe in my cookbook I had to make it toute de suite.
Remember that Stuffing I made last weekend? Well I took the reject sourdough pieces, baked them in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes, and used them to dip into the cheese spread. Pretty delicious if I do say so myself. Thumbs Up
