Easy Semi-Homemade Chicken Pot Pie...

The weather here in D.C has been mighty cold and I mean COOOOLD!!!!! I'm talking low 20's for the high and single digits for the low.....buuuurrrr!! You know that type of weather that has you feeling like once you're in the house you wont be going back out NO-MATTER-WHAT?! You know that type of cold weather that has you just wanting to Netflix and chill with your boo orrrr call up a boo just for the weather...yeah...that part- lol?! Y'all know I'm telling straight FACTS!

Anyway, we know cold weather calls for comfort food and that is exactly what I made! If you like chicken pot pie but don't wanna buy that sodium driven, frozen store bought pot pie, take a look below at this easy, semi-homemade chicken pot pie. 

Buuuut before you do.... gotta add this small *disclaimer... I apologize in advance for a few steps and pics not being included as they should have as I decided last minute to post this recipe*

Okay... carry on!

Ingredients Used:
-Small bag of mixed veggies
-Seasonings of your choice
-2 cans of Cream of Chicken soup
-Ready made store bought pie crust (not pictured b/c I was tripping)

Cleaned Chicken
-I used 3 chicken thighs which I deboned and cut up
(3-4 pcs of chicken is the perfect amount for 2 pot pies)

Chicken cleaned, skin removed and cut up

Now add in your seasonings of your choice
-Here I'm using Garlic Powder

-Here I'm adding in Italian seasoning

-Last seasoning I'm adding is some sodium free Chicken boullion

-All seasoned and ready to cook

-All done and ready to get to the mixing

-Add in your small frozen bag of veggies
-Next, add in your 2 cans of Cream of Chicken
soup and mix well (not pictured- told y'all I was tripping) lol

Time to grab your ready made pie crust that
I forgot to include above with needed ingredients (silly me- forgive me)
(ain't no slaving today making crust- NOPE) LOL

(This step is not a must but helps)
-Spread a little flour on surface (if you have it) if not no biggie,
just helps preventing your dough from sticking to the surface
-Take the bowl you're using to bake the pot pie
then trace and cut out dough.
(Don't do like me and cut just enough (bummer).
-Be sure to leave about 3-4 inches of dough so that
you'll have enough to bring up the sides of the bowl some

-Take the piece of dough and line your bowl
(As you see I didn't cut enough to bring up the sides but
none the less, still came out GREAT)

Once again- please forgive me...
I left this step and pic out above as mentioned
but add your filling (chicken, veggies and soup) to bowl

Once your filling has been added to the inside,
-Top with the remaining piece of ready made pie crust
(No cutting necessary for the top layer)
-Just lay rolled out crust over your filling and use fork to
remove access crust once you have enough to ensure pie crust
is overlapping so that no filling oozes out.
-Once you've removed the access crust, take teeth of fork
and make pie crust indention to seal for no oozing and for that finished pie look!

Here's the finished product! Figured I'd zoom in on the 
edges where I didn't follow my own instructions of
overlapping for no oozing! lol
So, be sure you follow the directions not the pictures lol

Hope you guys enjoyed this easy, semi-homemade Chicken Pot Pie recipe as much as hubby and I did!

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice... It's Sweater Season!!

YES! YES! YESSSSS!!!! Is it just me or do you also just loooove the fall? I mean, I'm a spring baby but fall is by far my second fave season. I can give you a mini book as to why I love fall but I'll just give a few. First reason would have to be the clothes :)! There's so many cute sweaters, sweater dresses, jackets, boots, mules etc. And the oh so many cute layered looks created with fall pieces. Then there's the many fall scented candles which is always a problem at checkout if you're an candle addict like me! I can go on and on...

So in honor of it being sweater weather, I decided to finally wear this gorge,  perfect for the weather sweater dress this past weekend. Take a look below.

Day or Night Denim

I've said this before and I'm sure I'll say it again.... I AM A COMFY BUT CUTE kinda girl! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a cute denim set, or the right pair of jeans because they can go with just about ANYTHING....literally! Denim pieces are normally very versatile which is another thing I love- but who doesn't! 

This past weekend my hubby and I went to a few gatherings and I FINALLY wore my denim jumpsuit I've had for a year now!! 

Take a look...

This denim jumpsuit was the perfect fit for this past weekend. Light and not too heavy, stylish and most importantly... cute and comfy! 
If any of you are interested in purchasing this jumpsuit, please keep in mind it was purchased one year ago from ASOS Curve.

Energy Starts With Your Thoughts

"Happy people focus on what they already have - Unhappy people focus on                                                  what's missing!!!"

Quick MOS (Moral of the story): When you focus on what you don't have, what you THINK is missing, what you want/need... believe it or not you're inviting negative energy into your space because your mind is constantly on "why" instead of focusing on the things you have, or the things you once prayed for that will keep your mind on "THANK YOU"!!!!

You know the saying, "the mind is a powerful thing to waste" right? Well, that's very true because our thoughts produce our actions and if your thinking negative..... how do you expect to produce positive results??? 

Think positive - Reap positive!!! Trust me!! If you don't wanna take my word for it just try it out and see if your vibe or energy changes!

Kicked Up "Boxed" Corn Muffins

If you like corn muffins then you'll LOVE these!! 

Now before we start, let me just say these muffins are NOT from scratch but just as good ....if not better (okay that may be stretching it but they are GOOD)!! I try not to cook these often because they're so heavy in carbs but depending on your carb intake (if you're even a carb counter), these muffins may not be a problem for you to indulge as often as you like. 

They're so easy to make and you only need 4 ingredient's!! 

Let's get started...

Ingredients: 1 box of Jiffy corn muffin mix, 2 eggs, 1 can of sweet cream style corn, 1 tablespoon of melted butter.

Box of Jiffy mix added to large mixing bowl.

Adding the cream style corn in.

Whole can of cream corn added.

Now add your 2 whole eggs.

Next, add the last ingredient: your 1 tablespoon of melted butter.

Mix all your ingredients together and it should look like this.

Spray/Butter up your muffin pan to prevent muffins from sticking. (I only have the 6 tin pan and this recipe makes 8-9 muffins).

Place mixture into your muffin pan. Set oven to 400 degrees and bake for about 15-20 minutes. The mixture will rise as it bakes so try not to fill quite to the top as your muffins will expand making them hard to remove.

Straight out of the oven after baking for approx. 17 minutes ...look at this beauty!! (I rubbed more butter on top- I know, I know....shameful)!!!! You can always opt for honey :)

Up close and personal (before the butter).

The final product!!!

These corn muffins are great for a "quick fix" when you don't have the time or energy to go from scratch! They go great with chili, ANY comfort meal or just a simple sweet fix!

If you decide to make these muffins, drop a comment and let me know how you liked them!! Or, if you have another quick fix corn muffin recipe, let a sista know so I can try it out, don't be stingy-haha :)!!
