If so, then you are going to love my Delicious Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Recipe Featuring Texas Pete Hot Sauce. It was such a fun meal to make because I knew it would bring smiles to my family members who enjoy a little spice in their lives!

Buffalo Chicken Lasagna recipe Delicious Buffalo Chicken Lasagna Recipe Featuring #TexasPete Sauces     We recently shopped at our local Walmart store to pick up some Texas Pete Hot Sauce, and some Texas Pete Buffalo Wing Sauce. You can find Texas Pete Hot Sauce at your local grocer. I knew both of these sauces would be ideal for my buffalo chicken lasagna dish because they would both pair well to bring the perfect kick to my meal. My husband loves my buffalo chicken dip so it dawned on me one day to make it into a pasta dish.

Sometimes it drives me nuts, but he loves the flavor and says it “enhances his food”.

Holiday Gift Idea Under $100: American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful Dollhouse

“We received this super amazing dollhouse in exchange for our honest review. All views expressed are that of our own.”

American plastic toys Delightful dollhouse  Holiday Gift Idea Under $100: American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful DollhouseEver since I was a little girl, I have always LOVED dolls and dollhouses. It was my dream that Santa would bring me one for Christmas when I was 5 years old. Amy dollhouse Holiday Gift Idea Under $100: American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful DollhouseGuess that whole sitting on his lap deal, and spilling my guts to him really worked because the Christmas of 1989 is when I received that special dollhouse. It was so amazing and provided so many hours of fun..kind of like the American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful Dollhouse my girls received last week.

American Plastic Toys Dollhouse  Holiday Gift Idea Under $100: American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful DollhouseWhen I got the opportunity to work with the folks at American Plastic Toys I was excited. My kids have so many of their toys already so I knew they were a trustworthy company that made things to last. The fact that they are American made toys is also huge for me considering it is so rare these days! My girls have been a bit spoiled in their lives to have 4 dollhouses throughout the years, but I knew the American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful Dollhouse was going to be a keeper since it was so large and seemingly well built.

purple doll bed Holiday Gift Idea Under $100: American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful DollhouseWhen our large package arrived, the little girl in me got a surge of excitement by the dollhouse! It was my favorite colors of purple and pink, and man was it huge! The cool thing was that it could be put together many different ways! You can mix and match the levels by assembling it differently. I love that option because I loved the idea of the largest tier in the middle so each of my kids had their own place space.

dollhouse bathtub  Holiday Gift Idea Under $100: American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful DollhouseI took my husband one hour to fully assemble the Fashion Doll Delightful Dollhouse. It was one of those “mainly” snap together jobs that required only a screwdriver for the roofs. dollhouse washer and dryer  Holiday Gift Idea Under $100: American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful DollhouseThis dollhouse also came with tons of stickers for the walls, floors, and even for a select few furniture pieces. It did come with all the basic furniture needs, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the fact that everything was purple.

Delightful Dollhouse  Holiday Gift Idea Under $100: American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful DollhouseOverall, for under $100 this dollhouse woudl be amazing for a special little girl or even boy at Christmas time. It does take up quite a bit of space because it has access in the front and back so take that into consideration before purchasing it.

You can find the American Plastic Toys Fashion Doll Delightful Dollhouse at retailers like Walmart or Amazon.com

Cranberry Orange French Toast Casserole a.k.a Bread Pudding Recipe

Cranberry orange french toast casserole Cranberry Orange French Toast Casserole a.k.a Bread Pudding RecipeFrench Toast casserole also know as bread pudding is one of my husband’s favorite desserts. He has loved it since a child and always requests I make it once the weather starts to cool down. I can’t blame him because I am a fan of the custardy goodness that my french toast casserole encompasses too. Making a batch is so easy and honestly it can serve as either a breakfast or dessert type of dish.

Orange and cranberry rounds french toast casserole Cranberry Orange French Toast Casserole a.k.a Bread Pudding RecipeI am all about mixing things up in the kitchen so when I received some Ozery Bakery Morning Rounds in Cranberry Orange, I knew I just had to use them in a casserole! They are so fresh, and delicious! If you have ever tasted a Portuguese sweet muffin, they sort of taste like that. We enjoyed some plain, with butter, and even with cream cheese. However, incorporating them into a french toast casserole was (dare I date myself?) “The Bomb”.

Orange bread pudding Cranberry Orange French Toast Casserole a.k.a Bread Pudding RecipeHere is what you’ll need to make Cranberry Orange French Toast Casserole:

Ingredients: 

  • 2 packages of Ozery Cranberry Orange Morning Rounds or 12 slices of white day old bread.

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice*glaze
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh orange zest *glaze
  • 2 cups powdered sugar *glaze

Orange Cranberry French Toast Casserole Cranberry Orange French Toast Casserole a.k.a Bread Pudding RecipeDirections:

Break apart your Ozery Cranberry Orange Morning Rounds or white bread and place them in a deep casserole dish

In a seperate bowl, mix your eggs, milk, extract, sugars, and cinnamon

Pour over your bread, and bake for 45 minutes at 350. the top crust should spring back when gently pushed.

For the optional glaze, mix the powdered sugar, zest, and juice together well, and pour over the warm or cooled Cranberry Orange French Toast Casserole. You family will LOVE this as a casserole breakfast or a bread pudding dessert. The unique flavoring of the Ozery Cranberry Orange Morning Rounds sent this recipe into overdrive making it delish! If you cannot find this product, the addition of 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1 teaspoon orange zest into the actual casserole recipe should help to replicate at delicious least the flavoring.

Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce with Zinfandel

Zinfandel Cranberry Sauce1 Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce with Zinfandel Honestly, I have never been a cranberry sauce kind of girl. There was always just something super freaky about that ribbed, gelatinous blob that came out of a can. Until recently, it never really dawned on me that cranberry sauce could be homemade. For the past few years, my husband’s friend would always rant and rave over his homemade cranberry sauce recipe that he adapted from Epicurious.

Cranberry sauce recipe spices Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce with ZinfandelAccording to him, it was one of those recipes that everyone designated to him, and could not live without during the holidays. I was sold on making it myself when the opportunity to enjoy some filet mignon roast came about. I had most of the spices needed in my pantry and just needed the fresh cranberries and Zinfandel wine.

So I made a double batch of  Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce with Zinfandel and Wow, was it delish…double wow at that! 

*This recipe is based on one batch, simply double as I did for more.

fresh cranberries Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce with ZinfandelIngredients:

  • 1 bag of Ocean Spray Fresh Cranberries
  • 1 3/4 cups red Zinfandel wine
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 2 full cinnamon sticks
  • 1/4 teaspoon all spice
  • half of a small orange peel

homemade cranberry sauce recipe Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce with ZinfandelDirections:

With the exception of the cranberries, all all the ingredients to a medium sized saucepan. Stir carefully over medium/high heat until all the sugars are dissolved.

Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes until the sauce base is reduced to about 1 3/4 cups

Place a strainer over a large pan and strain liquid into the pan. Since there are whole cloves, sticks, and such make sure the strainer is fine mesh.

Add your bag of cranberries to the stock pot of liquid and cook for about 10 minutes. Berries will be split and a little mushy.

Cool sauce, and transfer to a bowl and place it in the fridge to chill.

The fragrance was amazing, but the final product was out of this world superb! I hope your family enjoys this Homemade Spiced Cranberry Sauce with Zinfandel recipe.
