Chocolate-Dipped Heart Marshmallows

February is a great month for me.  I get to put up pink girly stuff all over the house and my husband can't really complain about it.  (He is super manly and thinks master bedrooms should be decorated with "gender neutral" colors... whatevs that means... I think fuschia pillows totally qualify.)  Also, we have two boys so I never get to do the girly thing there.  So, I like to start the Valentine's celebrating as early as possible.

(Wait till my husband finds out I'm making this and hanging it on our front door for a month. I'll be sure to take a picture of his face and put a caption on it that says "The cat peed WHERE? " before slapping it on pinterest.)

Anyways- back to girly Valentines things like these mallows. You can make them in any shape you want using teensy tiny cookie cutters.  Fondant cookie cutters work great for this (look in the cake decorating section).  My hobby lobby also has some small holiday themed sets by the modeling clay.

(Bizzar-o, I know... Doesn't anybody have the guts to tell the Hob Lob that modeling clay is inedible?  Suddenly the fact that I use the same coupon every single day and never get questioned or imprisoned makes soo much sense.)

PS- I finally finished my Chocolate Dipping Tips tab. Check it out and let me know what you think.  A video might be coming someday.  I just have to check with Reese  first to see if she could play the part of me while I whisper instructions from the sidelines.

(And by Reese, yes, I mean Witherspoon.  She's not quite as hot as me, but I guess she'll do.)

Have a happy Tuesday!

Chicken Enchiladas (Great freezer meal!)

I don't usually post dinner recipes, especially ones without pictures.  But, I feel like I am always typing this up for someone, so it might as well be shared here!  This is my go-to  "freezer meal" to make for others.  We almost always get asked for the recipe, so I think that means people like it as much as our family does.

I usually use just one can of mild chiles, because you never know what other people's kids will like/dislike. This makes a pretty mild casserole.  If you are making this for your family and don't mind the heat, feel free to up the chilies to two cans, or to use medium or hot chilies.

This recipe will make TWO foil pans of enchiladas  (about 6 medium sized enchiladas each).  If you are making this for your family, you can either half this recipe, or just make an extra pan to freeze for later!  I usually grill 3 XL chicken breasts the day before making this and chop them up and keep them in the fridge until I'm ready to assemble the enchiladas.  You could also use a rotisserie chicken if you're short on time.
