Another edition of Food by Us

Shaun and I really do love cooking! We especially love trying new things. Some of the yummy things we have made recently are Anniversary Chicken, homemade waffles with homemade strawberry syrup, and "Davinci's Horse" Burgers (name still in the works).

Anniversary Chicken

6 chicken breasts                            3 green onions
1/2 c. teriyaki sauce                        1/2 (3 oz) jar real bacon bits           
1/2 c. Ranch dressing                      Chopped fresh parsley        
1 c. shredded cheese

In large skillet,  heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and saute 4-5 minutes, until lightly browned. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken in 9X13 pan. Brush with teriyaki sauce. Spoon on Ranch. Sprinkle with cheese and green onions. Add bacon bits. Bake 25-30 minutes. Garnish with parsley

**Note: I didn't follow the exact recipe. We used less chicken since there was just the two of us. There was extra teriyaki sauce, which I just poured into the casserole dish. I also only used about 1/3 of a cup of Ranch dressing, but that is what I needed for the amount chicken we had. I also didn't use fresh parsley... Just the dried stuff...

Homemade waffles & strawberry syrup

Shaun made these for us the other morning. It was REALLY yummy. He followed the waffle recipe from the Betty Crocker cookbook we have. For the syrup he took 3/4 lb strawberries, 3/4 cup sugar and just enough water to cover the strawberries. He then cooked it on medium/medium high heat until it reduced.

"Davinici's Horse" Burger

These burgers were a lot of work, but REALLY good! Shaun ground a chuck steak and garlic with our meat grinder attachment we have on our KitchenAid. He then formed them into patties and put them on our grill. We then topped the patties was sauteed mushrooms, Davinci gouda, A1 sauce, and a little horseradish! They were SO yummy!!!
