Supernatural Sliders

This post is sponsored by Sverve and Farm Rich but all content and opinions, including the Supernatural Sliders are mine. #SmokehouseBBQ

For this year’s Halloween Bash Spooktacular I am making these Supernatural Sliders. They simple because FarmRich has Beef Brisket available int he freezer section that you can heat up in the oven or microwave not long before trick or treating or right before the party starts. We named them after Dean from Supernatural TV series since he eat crazy food like this. Our Halloween Bash is based on Supernatural this year.

Everyone is coming in costume based on characters from the show. I knew I had to make food that Sam and Dean would eat. These Supernatural Sliders just happened to fit perfectly. We plan to have these with cherry pie and drinks. Of course, a bit of pumpkin treats and candy galore! What’s Halloween without good food and candy?

Geez, I have to tell you how awesome these were with the onion rolls. The family is begging for more and now cannot wait until Halloween. This so gets me out of cooking that full scale dinner.

Salt and Pepper Pumpkin Seeds

It’s still time for Friday night football games with cooler weather. I think that is why I love these Salt and Pepper Pumpkin Seeds so much. This is a snack that I like to make to put in a plastic baggie and take with me to games, competitions, or just to sit outside with friends. Super duper healthy and simple!
 
Salt and Pepper Pumpkin Seeds by Mooshu Jenne

My daughter loves for me to bake the seeds. In the past we have done different versions from paprika seeds to season salt seeds and now salt and pepper seeds. I would love to try and do a cinnamon sugar seed but they all say it would be gross. They are not that big on sweets in my house. It’s all about the savory in my house. Heck if I could do bacon and pumpkin seeds I would find a way to do and eat it daily. 

Salt and Pepper Pumpkin Seeds by Mooshu Jenne

I put them up in a jar like this from the Dollar Tree. I probably shop there way too much. Oh they have this adorable full Halloween village. I need to get it but I keep putting it off. I don’t know if I would know where to set it up at. What do you decorate with? I did spider jars and this weekend I am working on spider web and more. Then it will be a trip to see Annabelle in theaters with a trip to the pumpkin patch. Must have spooky or cute pictures at the pumpkin patch even if they are teenagers! I know I refuse to let them grow up. Especially when it comes to Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday what can I say! OH! It’s also 7 days until Halloween. I have something major in the works. I simply cannot wait to tell all of you. How fun it is. A new tradition along with a our old. You’ll have to come back on Halloween to find out what it is!

Gooey Pumpkin Blondies

Today is the 9th day in the countdown until Halloween! Halloween is only one of my favorite holidays :) Today, I am sharing with you a recipe for Gooey Pumpkin Blondies. These bars have that gooey texture that some people love and others hate. So find that soft cookie/brownie eater and package these up to share with them. 

GooeyPumpkinBlondies2

These are cute if you cut them smaller chunks and add them to an adorable Halloween themed mason jar. You can easily use some of those leftover Halloween cupcake wrappers. Just flip it upside down and add it between the lid seal and the lid ring. Makes an adorable ruffle with almost no work! Cutting the Gooey Pumpkin Blondies into smaller pieces and adding a Halloween themed paper straw is another way to serve them up at a Halloween party for bite size pieces.

Gooey Pumpkin Blondies by Mooshu Jenne Made with Halloween chocolate chips, fresh pumpkin, and pumpkin spiced marshmallows.

I am so excited for Halloween. Are you? Have you picked out your costume yet? I am still trying to make the tough decision between being a cat, witch, or monster. My teens insist that I go as a witch but the darn hat annoys the crap out of me. I really love those fuzzy leg warmers that make a costume into something adorable. I really want to go as a raccoon but they think I am NUTS. I’d love to hear about what you have planned for the holiday or what you plan to wear. Homemade costumes are especially fun! I saw a Medusa DIY headband just two days ago; completely cute! Come tell me below all the spooktacular costumes you have in mind. Now to plan a trunk or treat idea. Have you ever done a trunk or treat? This is my first time. Usually we have an annual Halloween party but this year we have something a bit more planned. Yes, it’s a surprise. You’ll have to visit the blog on Halloween to find out! Spooky dreams!

15 Bean Slow Cooker Soup

The fall weather is here! The windows open, watching movies, slow cooker going, and just relaxing while I work. The only other condition I would change is a bit of rain. My son even said to me “I am going for a walk and enjoy this beautiful day.” He went for a walk in the woods. He is my nature child. He is 19 and about as humble as anyone could be. Last night, I finally got him to try my 15 Bean Slow Cooker Soup. I told him it’s a must over cornbread. He actually liked my beans! He is not a bean eater.

15 Bean Slow Cooker Soup - Mooshu Jenne

About as close to beans as he gets is a bean burrito on very rare occasion. It was an honor to make his mouth tingle with something new. He is just so mellow though. I wish I could have his inner peace. Though, on days like this when it’s pretty outside and you can write by cool air and a good movie like Pompeii on the big screen it gives me a sense of inner peace.

15 Bean Slow Cooker Soup - Mooshu Jenne

The aroma of the soup slow cooking only allows me to be more in tune with that foodie side of me. I am planning plenty of meals at the moment. I don’t know which to start with first. I have the mother load of sugar pumpkins. They are decorating my counter tops at the moment. It looks as if fall rained down in my kitchen. It’s plastered with pumpkins, spooky cupcakes, and candy galore.

15 Bean Slow Cooker Soup - Mooshu Jenne

This 15 Bean Slow Cooker Soup allows me to put this all in the slow cooker extremely fast. Then I get to move on to other goodies without slaving over dinner. That’s the idea behind the slow cooker but flavor is a big detail too. Most slow cooker meals I try don’t have that OMG I want to eat tons of this flavor. I think that is why I want to share a few of my slow cooker recipes with you. Less ingredients and packed with massive flavor. That’s what makes this dish not only delicious but completely budget friendly.

Tex Mex Pasta Skillet

Did I ever mention how much I love my Lodge skillet? It’s the easiest way for me to fry up meat or bake cornbread. I just love making quick skillet dinners in it too. The meat cooks evenly and fast. In this Texas humidity recipes can get very unruly fairly fast. The skillet heat equally and allows for a good even cooking even when you are dealing with horrible humidity. This is a simple skillet dinner called Tex Mex Pasta Skillet that I make on weeknight when I just don’t have the time to stand in the kitchen for a long period of time.

Tex Mex Pasta Skillet by Mooshu Jenne  Savory pasta topped with chili and rotel.

We all have those days. Whether it is running the kids, or in my case teenagers, to school and back. High tailing the other ones to work. Or even the plenty of football games and competitions. In fact, we tend to eat out often during this season and we all have said how much we have missed those home cooked meals. In two nights, we put this little Tex Mex Pasta Skillet and a 15 bean soup that is headed to the blog also.

Tex Mex Pasta Skillet by Mooshu Jenne Savory pasta topped with chili and rotel.

It takes minimal ingredients so it’s easy for your teenager to be able to make on their own. It’s also completely budget friendly. It’s loaded with flavor but doesn’t come from using your entire spice cabinet to get there. You can control the level of heat too by which style of Rotel you buy. I usually get the medium heat and then add some fresh cracked pepper. I like spicy foods though! I also top my with a bunch of yummy cheese. Some times sharp cheddar cheese or sometimes a good colby jack cheese. Below is a quick video showing how I put this together so quick and easy. The skillet cuts my meat cooking time down by at least 10 minutes.

Pear and Apple Pork Chop Skillet

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media® and Smithfield, but all my opinions are my own. #weavemade #SmithfieldAllNatural http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH 

Pear and Apple Pork Chop Skillet  - Mooshu Jenne #weavemade #SmithfieldAllNatural #ad

Now that we are settling into our new routines with back to school, new jobs, and for me more work. Dinners need to be tasty and not take hours to make. Sometimes a good slow cooker meal is great. When I am not in the mood for that I gravitate towards Smithfield pork chops. They are super easy to cook up in a skillet using any sauces, fruits, or spices.  Just like this Pear and Apple Pork Chop Skillet.

Pear and Apple Pork Chop Skillet  - Mooshu Jenne #weavemade #SmithfieldAllNatural #ad

This weekend I stopped off at Tom Thumb and picked up my Smithfield All Natural pork chops. I used the $1 off coupon from the Just4U coupon center via Tom Thumb’s website. Which is a pretty good price to make a dinner for 8 people. (While Supplies Last)

Pear and Apple Pork Chop Skillet  - Mooshu Jenne #weavemade #SmithfieldAllNatural #ad

I also picked up some apples, pears, and rosemary. I knew I wanted to make a easy dish that would fit with our new routine but also have tons of flavor. I needed something simple and not much clean up so I paired the pork with apples and pears along with baked potatoes on the side. 

I simply put the potatoes in the digital oven ahead of time wrapped in foil and baked for an hour and thirty minutes. I actually ran to shop while they were baking. I grabbed the pork and began my quick adventure into cooking. Just as you can see in the step by step video above. I added the onions, then the apples, then the pears, then the rosemary, and then the pork. I topped it all off with Mediterranean salt, cracked pepper and some Worcestershire sauce. Cook for about 20 minutes and serve it up with the pears, apples, and a loaded baked potato.

Sweet and Spicy Ramen

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Monk Fruit In The Raw. I received product samples to facilitate my post as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. 

This is the time of year that my two oldest are working and my daughter seems to spend most of her time at school or in after school activities. I don’t go out to lunch as often as I use to. I’ve been wanting to find ways to have an inexpensive and healthy option for lunch for myself and for them when they do get to eat with me.

Lucky Charms Ice Cream Cake – Gluten Free

My son’s 19th birthday was just last Friday. I wasn’t sure if he would be here or not. Luckily he was! Every year I battle with the fact that he doesn’t like cake and well I don’t like making giant cookies often. That was before I got my new Lodge skillet. However, I knew he would be much happier if it included ice cream and no cake. We were also looking for a gluten free option for my son’s best friend that I call my adopted son. 

Lucky Charms Ice Cream Cake - Mooshu Jenne #Dessert

After much deliberation we figured out that Lucky Charms are gluten free and thought why not use the recipe I did for the Twinkie Forest Berry Ice Cream but mold it into a springform pan. I mean it should be a piece of cake right? It just takes about 5 minutes to put together. Had two hours sleep the night before, went to the airport, cooked brunch, made this Lucky Charms Ice Cream Cake, attended a football game and came home after to watch him blow his candles out. It was one very long day!

Lucky Charms Ice Cream Cake - Mooshu Jenne #Dessert

Unfortunately, all my candles were thrown out so I had to use a spaghetti noodle for his candles. Hey it worked! ;) The only thing that counts is that he got a cake he loved with friends and family around him. The rest of the night he had fun with his friends and enjoying his beloved Xbox One. We finally got to catch up with each about everything while he was gone about three days later. He just seems to have the permanent smile lately. I think it has a bit to do with this cake! It’s not all the cake of course but I would super credit how many smiles and grabby hands were around when I went to serve it. It will definitely be on my to do list for any future parties. There is so many variations you can do with it too! The possibilities are endless. Do you have an idea of what you would use? Tell me below.

For fun, I thought it would be awesome to have a Captain America Ice Cream Cake to go along with watching the movie. Why? Well who doesn’t love Superheroes

Did you know #HeroesEatMMs? I swear they do! (shakes head yes with big eyes). I am firm believer that Captain America himself would absolutely enjoy this Captain America Ice Cream Cake before he takes out the next bad guy! Or even makes another hero command at a god like Thor. You know that snarky Captain!

I hopped on over to Walmart to pick up my M&M’S® with some heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk. That’s about all that goes into this cake. It takes no more than 10 minutes to make and a few hours to freeze. I had my son separate all the M&M’s and I couldn’t keep them out of eating them. He said it was pure torture for me to make him separate the M&M’s. Hehe! He was my hero eating M&M’s and helping out his mama.
