Grinch Cake

When I saw this recipe on Oh Bite It I knew it had to be made.
I don't care what time of year it is, we all need a gooey green cake in our lives!

We brought this to a friend's house for a party, and it was certainly a conversation starter!

The ripe banana is not a powerful flavor, but it adds so much moistness, especially when dealing with a boxed cake mix.

I did mine in a 9 x 13 (easier to transport), but I think two 9 inch rounds with the frosting between the layers would be pretty cool too.

Ingredients:
1 Box yellow or white cake mix
(additional ingredients required per cake box)
2 Ripe bananas
Green food coloring
Frosting (white or green)
Chocolate sprinkles


Directions:
1. Mix cake batter per box instructions
2. Mash bananas with a fork and add to batter
3. Pour cake mix into desired pan size
4. Drop a few food coloring drops and swirl around batter
5. Bake per box directions for your size pan
6. If using white frosting, dye it green
7. Add 2 Tbsp chocolate sprinkles to the frosting
8. Frost cooled cake with goopy frosting
9. Sprinkle with additional chocolate sprinkles

Sweet and Sour Chicken

I love my random recipe cards, they always add little helpful tips.
Tips make my day just that much better!


  • Bake chicken in the sauce then cool. Refrigerate, well covered, for up to 2 days. Reheat in a 325 oven for 20 minutes before serving.
  • Make two meals at the same time. Bake a double batch of chicken and chill the extra breasts in some of the sauce. Drain, slice into thin strips, and serve on shredded lettuce with tomato wedges and dressing.
  • Two cups of hot cooked angel hair pasta is an elegant substitute for the rice in this dish


Ingredients:

6 Tbsp Olive oil
6 Tbsp Soy sauce
6 Tbsp Honey
3 Tbsp White vinegar
1 ½ Tsp Dried Thyme
1 ½ Tsp Paprika
½ Tsp Cayenne pepper
½ Tsp Ground allspice
1 Tsp Pepper
4 Chicken breasts
2 Cups hot cooked white rice

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375
2. Combine oil, soy sauce, honey, vinegar, thyme, paprika, cayenne, allspice, and pepper in a shallow baking dish. Mix well.
3. Pierce both sides of each chicken breast with a fork
4. Place chicken in baking dish, turn chicken several times with tongs
5. Bake chicken for 30 minutes
6. Serve chicken over rice
