Banana Muffins w/ Frosted Flakes

You can find the recipe that i used here -> EVERYDAYSISTERS


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients. Combine bananas, egg and butter; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Crush Frosted Flakes and sprinkle over muffins. Bake at 375 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

So another recipe i found while browsing on Pinterest was this super simple chicken & broccoli dish.

here is the link to the original recipe and here is mine... i modify because i either don't have all the ingredients or i don't particularly like some of them.

for the most part its the same...

(i dont measure to exact)

2 medium fresh broccoli crowns, break into pieces and steam (i forgot about the 2 min so my broccoli was very mushy, yummmm)
i used a n 8 oz bag of shredded cheddar (about 2 cups) i should have used more, but its all i had
4 single serving size packets of ritz crackers (more than enough)
1 stick of butter (forgot to melt)
(i didn't have any poppy seeds so i didn't use them)

1 stick of butter
1/3 cup of water
1/2 tub of knorrs chicken stock
1/4 c corn starch dissolved in 1/2 c COLD water
Salt & Pepper 
1 c Skim milk
1 c Whole milk

In greased 13×9 pan, layer the broccoli and chicken, then set aside. 
In saucepan over medium heat, combine the butter, cornstarch dissolved in water, chicken broth, seasonings, and milk. 
Stir well, and continue stirring until sauce has thickened. 
Pour over the chicken and broccoli. Top cheddar cheese.
 Crush Ritz crackers with hands as prinkle crumbs over the top of the cheddar cheese, and place 6 pats of butter.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until hot & bubbly and this is what you get
