Taste Test: Duff Goldman Premium Biscuits

I found this in the grocery store and had to grab a box. This one is Bacon and Cheddar Cheese. I couldn’t find a direct link to the item but they’re by Duff Goldman at Charm City Cakes.

They’re super simple to prepare: you need melted butter, milk and Cheddar cheese. They smelled awesome even before I popped them into the oven! 


Once they baked, I could REALLY smell the bacon! 


The kit made a huge dozen biscuits. My teen and I each had one before we sat down for lunch. 

I definitely recommend these!

Chicken and Rice

Well, I had a BBQ Chicken Quesadillas recipe and was all set to go. 

Hmm. The meal sounded good when I printed it off a couple of weeks ago but tonight, it didn’t. So I messed around. 

Here’s the ingredient list from AllRecipes:

1 cup UNCLE BEN’S (R) Whole Grain Brown rice 

3 cups cooked and diced chicken breast

1 (15 ounce) can of kidney or red beans

1 cup BBQ sauce 

3 cups shredded cheddar cheese

6 (10 inch) flour tortillas

Ok. You’re supposed to mix the rice, chicken, beans, cheese and BBQ sauce together, then use the mixture to make quesadillas. 

Here’s what I did:

I baked my chicken tenders, seasoned with Weber Kickin’ Chicken Seasoning. On one pound of tenders, I used a whole tablespoon and along with that, tossed the tenders in a tablespoon of olive oil. The chicken baked in about 30 minutes. 

I prepared the rice and shredded the chicken. I grabbed a can of pinto beans and made a side dish by refrying them!

When my teen and I sat down to eat, we had the refried beans in one bowl and the chicken/rice in another. From there we stuffed our tortillas and stuffed our faces. 

My teen stuffed his tortillas with all of the chicken, rice and beans. I am a purist and stuffed my tortillas with beans, eating my chicken and rice on my plate. 

I wish I had pictures. It seems as though my belly was telling me to eat and my blogger brain forgot to tell me to take pictures!

Easy One Pan Taco Skillet

As an AllRecipes AllStar, I get to sample yummy food items. 

This month, I was able to make a delicious supper with UNCLE BEN’S(R) Ready Rice(R) Long Grain & Wild. 

The recipe was a cinch to make. The rice cooked in 90 SECONDS! I’d never used the pouches of rice before but after tonight, I’ll be using them again!
