The Pampered Chef Meets Team Roxie.

I can’t tell you how excited I was when The Pampered Chef rep, Sara Radginski contacted me about putting together a fundraiser for….. the one, the only…. Team Roxie!!! (Side note: I LOVE how many of you are buying Team Roxie shirts – I was at the mall today and spotted a teenager sporting one and LOVED it, felt an instant bond, and thought how awesome it will be to spot these popping up all over St. Louis… or all of the country!)  Details to follow but here’s the big news – for ONE WEEK only, 30% of all Pampered Chef purchases (when made through Team Roxie) will go directly to Team Roxie!!

I’m going to be real honest with you and, if you promise not to judge, let you in on a little secret.

I’m not the world’s best cook.

I do have the best intentions on cooking home-cooked meals five or six nights a week (just like my momma always did) but lately (read: since little one #2 entered this world) somehow five o’clock rolls around and I’ve yet to even think about what’s for dinner.  Leave it to Sara to hook me up with some Pampered Chef gear and give me some quick, easy (yes, easy!) recipes to try.

Meet my new friend, the Deep Covered Baker.

The first recipe Sara recommended was the Chicken Tortilla Casserole.  And she even sent me my very own grocery list (she must have known who she was dealing with!) which came in handy when I arrived at the grocery store and could just pull up the email on my phone:

Poblano pepper
1 lb chicken breast
Can of black beans
Tortilla chips
Shredded cheese

The prep time for this was literally about four minutes.  Yes, four.   Popped Jacob on the table with some markers, Audrey in her bumbo, and fancied myself Betty Crocker for… um… four minutes.   But hey, it’s a start.

After slicing the peppers and the chicken, I just placed them in the baker.

Added a few tablespoons of the Southwestern Seasoning Mix

And then… cover and pop in the microwave (yes, really the microwave… I was hesitant about this as well!) for 15 minutes.  Easy!
When it was done, I used the handy Salad Choppers to actually shred the chicken up.

Toss in your black beans, salsa, some crushed up tortilla chips, shredded cheese, pop back in the microwave for two minutes and ta daaaaa… Dinner!  And I’m not lying when I tell you it was delicious.  A winner with Philip as well!  (And he thought I slaved away all afternoon!)

After storing the leftovers, I rinsed out the Baker (no soap!) and was ready for dessert.  This time I did call upon my friend Betty Crocker for her Super Moist Devil’s Food cake.   Ready for some amazing Lava Cake?!
Just prepare the Devil’s Food cake as instructed on the box.  Always helps to have a little one do the stirring…
Then place in the baker and dump about 10 scoops of chocolate frosting on top.

Then… this time uncovered.. microwave for 11 minutes.


Made even tastier with a scoop of vanilla bean!

There’s a million other recipes that can be made using the Deep Covered Baker alone and I already have my eye on a ton of other new products to try.  And now is the time!!!
So here’s the details.  Remember – one week only – 30% of all purchases will go directly to TEAM ROXIE!!

3) Enter “Team” for first and “Roxie” for last name.  You MUST do this or it won’t count for the fundraiser!

  • How is it that just anybody can publish a weblog and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said something incredibly impressive more like youve painted a pretty picture above an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, right here. But do you genuinely think that you can get away with adding some fairly pictures and not really say something?ReplyCancel
