Cinnamon Biscuits (melt-in-your-mouth)

P1040278I’m excited to share this recipe with you today because these Cinnamon Biscuits were SO good..and yes, melt-in-your mouth good!

I’ve made cinnamon biscuits many times before- but each time I’ve improved my outcome little by little. Last night I ┬ámade these along with dinner and WOW! They turned out perfect, and I now have a new love. ­čÖé So, ditch the canned biscuits. (move over, Grands!-You’ve been replaced!)P1040275

I like this recipe because:

  1. Moist and tender…not dry or crumbly.
  2. Filling is made with only honey and cinnamon- not extra sugar and butter
  3. Added nutritious ingredients- when I’m making something a little more on the indulgent side of things- like these- I like to see if I can bump up the nutrition a bit. So, in these, I used half wheat flour and added milled flax seed and some wheat germ. Even your picky eaters will never know there is anything remotely healthy about these.
  4. The glaze. Oh yes- this glaze completes the cinnamon biscuit. Pour it on when the biscuits are hot from the oven and it melts down all around them, and creates the perfect finish. It’s made with a little bit of cream cheese.
  5. Quick to make. Cinnamon “Rolls” are very yummy, too- but they use yeast, which will require time to let the dough rise. These biscuits are much faster!
  6. And lastly- they are finger-licking DELICIOUS!

Golden Parmesan Crusted Chicken Tenders

P1030781These chicken tenders are so good and perfect for a family meal. Skip the pre-packaged chicken coatings- this is so easy to prepare at home with just a few ingredients.

You will be serving up golden and nicely-crusted chicken tenders that taste great and that are healthy, too!

Here’s why I like them:

1. Healthier! Anytime I can add nutrition to a dish, without ┬ácompromising the taste- I’m happy. This recipe uses Wheat Germ as a coating. It mimics bread crumbs, and results in a nice and crispy texture, but wheat germ is also a great source of Folic Acid, Fiber, and many vitamins. I love using it!

2. Baked- though I do like the taste of fried tenders, baking is lower-fat, less-messy, and easier to prepare.

3. Quick- Chicken tenderloins only take about 20 minutes to bake

4. Juicy and Crispy- This coating gives a nice crusted finish to the tenders- no soggy coating for me, please.

5. Completely homemade- Milk, Wheat germ, fresh Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, paprika- that’s it!
