Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix!

Well, I finally caved in and bought a box of Betty Crocker yellow cake mix!  I was able to double a $1/1 coupon and paid only $1.85 for it!  It was really nice to have a easy mix to make instead of making it by scratch.

They turned out great and don't they look yummy?
My Son thought they were yummy!

I used the recipe for frosting off of the Nestle Toll House Cocoa container:
Chocolate Lover's Frosting
3 cups sifted powdered sugar, divided
2/3 cup Nestle Toll House baking cocoa
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
5 to 6 Tbsp. milk, divided
1 tsp vanilla extract
Beat 1 cup powdered sugar, cocoa, butter, 2 Tbsp. milk and vanilla extract in small mixer bowl until creamy.  Gradually beat in remaining sugar and milk until smooth.  Makes 2 cups.

Have you tried any of the Gluten Free Betty Crocker Mixes yet?  Which one and what did you think?

Mexican Chicken Yum!

A few nights ago, I was trying to use what I had on hand to make dinner and Mexican Chicken Yum was created!  It smelled so good that I couldn't get a picture before the family dug into it!  

Mexican Chicken Yum
1 box of yellow rice
1 lb of chicken diced
1 can of Rotel tomatoes with lime and cilantro
1 can of black olives
Colby and Monterey Jack cheese to cover top 

Preheat the oven to 350.  Cook rice as directed on package.  Cook chicken in canola oil until cooked through.  Mix chicken, rice, black olives and tomatoes in a casserole dish.  Cover with as much cheese as you want ( we love cheese so the top was piled high with cheese!) and bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Serve as is or with tortilla chips.

I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does!
