Lil' Betty Crocker in the making

With my busy schedule at work I RARELY have the time or energy to cook; especially since I usually work nights.  Honestly my husband does 99.6% of the cooking in the house. Well, since I'm on vacation I decided to give the hubby a break and cook one of his favorite meals. Its a really simple chicken dish that only takes about 15-20 minutes to cook (my kind of meal). I got this recipe from Taste of Home "Winning Recipes" Cookbook. Here is the recipe:

Creamy Mushroom Chicken
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoon vegetable oil(I prefer extra virgin olive oil)
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup butter
4-1/2 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 cup  milk
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Season chicken with pepper. In a large skillet brown chicken in oil until juices run clear. Remove to a serving dish and keep warm.
In same skillet saute mushrooms with butter.  Sprinkle with flour and gradually add milk. Bring to a boil and stir for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat stir in 1/2 cup of parm cheese. pour over chicken sprinkle with parsley and remaining parm cheese( I don't put the extra parm on top. I let people add it to their taste).

I actually miss cooking for my family. There is a certain enjoyment you get from it. While I was in the cooking mood I decided Kyla and I were going to bake cookies and cupcakes.

Baking with Kyla went a lot better than I expected. She was such a great little helper. I think her favorite
parts were rolling up the balls for the cookies and putting icing on the cupcakes.

(oh and eating them of course)
