Copic Candy!!!



Copics anyone???? Look what Marianne at Copic Markers gave me to share!


I'm Baaaaaack! Oh baby..... I cannot even tell you how much fun I had with Marianne. I had to keep reminding myself to close my mouth. AMAZING. I would have paid SO much more for that class. I am going to be a Marianne groupie. If you are anywhere near Medford, OR this coming Friday (April 18th), you are CRAZY if you don't sign up and get Copic Certified. This class and Copic markers WILL BLOW YOUR MIND. I was gasping out loud. GASPING! I love Marianne and Copic Markers!!!! I had SO much fun!! I can't wait to share with you all the cool things these markers can do!

As soon as I arrived, I received three hugs from Marianne.... so thanks girls!! Marianne did indeed give me your hugs!! I got to meet stampers that are in some of my stamp groups... it was SO fun to put names to faces. I wish we could have hung out longer! Everyone was as excited as me.... so can you imagine? We all wanted to just bottle up Marianne and take her home (her AND her Copics).

If you leave a comment (I love easy recipes *wink*) , I'll have random.org choose a winner on Friday! Candy includes 1 Copic Wide Y15 (yellow), 2 Copics G14, G16 (Apple Green & Malachite), 2 Copic Sketch B21 & B23 (Baby Blue & Phthalo), 2 Copic Ciao E93 & E95 (Tea Rose & Flesh Pink), 1 Twinkling Like Stars Spica Glitter Pen and 1 Wine Copic Multiliner all in the little Copic Bag to go!


I have SO much to catch up on today, but hopefully this evening I can put together some of the images I colored this weekend. See ya soon... thanks for stopping by!

Hey girl, Go color and come back and show us what these babies can do! I cannot wait to see! I am so excited that you had such a great time and learned so much. Now show us! Hee hee. Pick me! I don't even own one copic marker. I would love to try them and see if they are "worth" my money I don't have.

Tamara said...

I am so glad you had a good time. I would LOVE to get copic certified, but I can't afford a trip to the US just for the classes. Maybe if I start saving now...

Melissas said...

Sounds like you had a blast. Can't wait to see what you color up next! Thanks for sharing with us :)

Donna said...

lucky you, can't wait to see what you show us!~
here's a great one I got from Pots & Pins blog. chop up one onion and place 1/2 on the bottom of a crock pot. then put a salt & peppered pork butt (fat side up) and the remaining onion on top. cook on HIGH for 4-5 hours. Then, shred with a fork and place a bottle of BBQ sauce & you have shredded pork sandwiches. yumm-o

Laci said...

The class sounds amazing. I can't wait to see your next project!

*stumbling over myself to type in a comment...*

I've been eyeballing Copics all weekend since you started *bragging* about becoming certified!! In fact, I slipped my husband a note AT CHURCH with Copics and a ScorePal on it, followed with the words "For Christmas/Birthday/etc". My mind is ON these things!!

Quick recipe....

Garlic Bread Bites

1 can of Grands biscuits
Pressed Garlic
Italian seasoning (if you have the Pampered Chef Italian--that's ALL you need...YUMMMM!! I can hook ya up... *wink*)
melted butter

Preheat oven according to biscuit directions.

Pull biscuits apart and roll into small balls. Place them in a pie plate (touching is fine).

Mix melted butter, garlic, and seasoning together. Brush on biscuits.

Bake as per biscuit directions.

Pull apart and enjoy!!!

wendy peatross said...

I wish I could have been there. It sounds like so much fun. I've finally started my Copic collection. But I still NEED more and more practice. I love the fun projects you share.

Misti said...

I'm sooo jealous of you right now!! The Copic certification class isn't coming to Kansas City until Oct!! Could you email me and let me know what this class cost, so I can be saving up!! I emailed them and they won't have the info ready for me until the end of summer! I kind of need to know before that what my expense will be!! Thanks Cambria! I'm so glad you had a wonderful time!! I'm green with envy right now!

Emily said...

That class sounds awesome. I wish I wasn't so far away. I can't wait to see what you show us. I haven't tried copics yet, but they look fun.

Ok bare with me I am not one for giving recipes but here we go and this is my first time doing it.

Ellie Hurry up Chicken Wraps(I learned this watching Rachel Ray)

Brown chicken breast pieces in olive oil in skillet, and stir in some salsa. Cook until chicken is thoroughly cooked, then cut up chicken in the sauce. Layer on warmed tortillas with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sliced avocado, and sour cream. Fold tortilla and you'll have happy kids!

Ok how was that??? I soooo wish I could take some Copic classes that would be so awesome :)

I can hear the joy in your words about attending the copic class.
Look forward to seeing the images that you played with.

Janet

Libby said...

Hey Cami, if you happen to pick me please pick another since I already have a ton of copics (yeah!!) and would love for somebody else to experience the joy. :-) But just wanted to say I'm glad you had an awesome time, and I'm so jealous that I don't live in Oregon!! I was already jealous of Oregon people and their beautiful gardens (it takes a lot of determination to have a beautiful garden in central TX!) and now this... *hmfph*! :-)

Jackie said...

Well, here's a super easy dip recipe and although it may not look appetizing it is delicious!

Sausage Dip

1 lb. mild sausage
8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 can mild Rotelle tomatoes OR 8 oz jar of Picante Sauce

Brown sausage; drain. Place sausage and other ingredients into crock pot, stir; heat until cheese melts. Serve warm with Tostitos or crackers.

If you like it hotter/spicier, use a spicier sausage and tomatoes. We're spice wimps around here so we use th mild stuff.

Jen said...

Fun!

Lisa H. said...

can't pass this up. I would love copic, at least I think I would love them. I can't fit them in the budget, yet!
so an easy recipe, huh?
Well, I recently discovered this awesome Pampered Chef recipe for a yummy Strawberry triffel. It is easy, tastes amazing, and is even pretty to look at!
Strawberry Cream Trifle
-----------------------

Ingredients:
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 pkg (10.75 oz) frozen pound cake, thawed
1 qt. fresh strawberries
1 container (16 oz) frozen sliced strawberries in syrup, thawed
1 lemon
3 containers (8 oz each) blended strawberry yogurt
1 pkg (3.4 oz) cheesecake instant pudding and pie filling
1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
Powdered sugar

Directions:
1. Coarsely chop almonds using Food Chopper. Cut pound cake into 1-in. cubes using Color Coated Bread Knife; set aside. Set aside one strawberry for garnish. Hull remaining strawberries and cut into quarters. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine fresh and frozen strawberries; mix well.

2. Juice lemon using Juicer to measure 2 tbsp juice. In Stainless (4-qt.) Mixing Bowl, whisk lemon juice, yogurt and pudding mix until smooth using Stainless Whisk; immediately fold in 1 cup of the whipped topping.

3. To assemble trifle, place one-third of the pound cake cubes into bottom of Trifle Bowl. Top pound cake with one-third of the strawberry mixture. Top with half of the yogurt mixture, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with one-third of the almonds. Repeat layers one time. Top with remaining pound cake cubes and remaining strawberry mixture.

4. To garnish, spread remaining whipped topping over top of trifle, forming a flat surface using Small Spreader. Sprinkle remaining almonds over whipped topping. Sprinkle with powdered sugar using Flour/Sugar Shaker. Create strawberry fan with reserved strawberry; place into center of trifle.

Yield: 12 servings

AnnL said...

WOW! I sure wish a Copic class would come to Indiana, but no such luck I'm sure. Here is an awesome recipe for a party:

Pretzels, rolos, pecans
Put pretzels on a microwaveable plate, place a rolo on top, microwave 30 seconds or until softening; push pecan into rolo and smash down. Tastes like a turtle.

Lisa Rogers said...

Sounds like you had a great time. I need to venture into the Copic world, I just well am too worried that once I start with those, I'll never stop buying till I've gotten them all.
Easy Recipe huh?
Sloppy Joes (my fav)

Brown ground beef with an onion & green pepper that you've chopped up. Add a can or two of tomato soup, some salt & pepper and let cook for almost 2 hours (I think, I just watch it). Serve on buns with macaroni salad, and I'll be right there for din din.

Pieces of me said...

OK here's mine:
Awesome Chicken
4 Chicken breasts
1pkg. Good Seasons Italian salad dressing mix
1 teasp. Onion powder
1 teasp. Garlic powder
1 1/2 C. corn flake crumbs
Sour cream
wash and clean chicken, pat dry.
Mix Corn flake crumbs with Italian salad dressing mix and 1 teasp. Onion and 1 teasp. Garlic powder.together. Coat chicken breasts with sour cream, dip in corn flake mixture. Place in a 9 x 13 baking pan bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 min, do not over cook.
This can be adjusted for more chicken breast just by using more crumbs and adding a bit more onion and garlic. Very good and easy.

I have a great recipe for a pasta sauce...Take 2 cans of Italian style tomatoes, put them in a blender with an 8 oz bar of cream cheese...of course the cream cheese has to be soft. Blend all together and heat sauce. Serve with your choice of pasta. My family loves it!

Lori

Lisa Hjulberg said...

I can't wait to get some tips on how to use my Copics! I hope she comes to So Cal some day. As for a recipe, I don't have much to share on that because I hate to cook, but one easy meal is to put chicken breasts in the crock pot with a can of cream of mushroom soup and about a 1/2 of white wine (or dry cream sherry). The wine is what makes it really tasty!

Pamm said...

OMG, that is soooo cool. Can they have a class in Illinois? I sometimes(not too often) wish I didn't live in the boonies! Share your wisdom girl!!! We await it with bated ( and chocolate) breath!

Pamm

Allison said...

Wow...what fun! I will offer you a quick sauce:

2 parts brown sugar, 2 parts ketchup, 1 part mustard. Mix, nuke for one minute and pour over cooked meatloaf or meatballs.

Anonymous said...

What an amazing give away!! Thanks for all of the inspiration. Here is an easy desert recipe.

Rolo Pretzels
mini twist pretzels
rolos
pecans

Place the rolos on top of the pretzels in a cookie sheet, and heat in a 250 degree oven until slightly melted. Then press the pecans into the rolos. Let cool and enjoy. It tastes just like a turtle candy.

Debi said...

Cami, I love your blog! I don't have a good recipe since I am not the cook in our family. My favorite lunch is a can of select tuna with miracle whip and grapes and celery added. Yummm
I would love a chance to try those copic markers. I have not been able to purchase them yet but I love coloring my images and heard they are awesome.

My recipe for today:

Meatballs (with cheese inside).

Grab 1lb of ground beef

Mix all together... then form little meatballs and stick a piece of cheese inside... Cook at 400 for 15 minutes.

QC said...

My favorite Friday recipe involves a phone call to the local Pub for a dinner order!!!!!!!

(Are you kidding me? I spend most nights playing the waiting game with my DH to see which of us holds out the longest before cooking! LOL!! Cereal is a BIG dinner item at my house....LOL!!)

Ettiene said...

What great blog candy. Here is my recipe for my pasta salad i bring everywhere in the summer. I toss cooked and then chilled tortellini with diced red peppers, a little red onion and some sliced radishes and then i toss with ranch dressing. Its so easy and so good. Everyone always asks for the recipe.

Kerry J. said...

Thanks Cynthia

Stefanie said...

What fun Cami! I'm so jealous that I couldn't go, but I can't wait to see your samples and the new creations you will make with what you learned.

Keri said...

Yeah for the copic candy!!!! As for a recipe, it's sort of quick find that I had to do last week when I realized I had taken a pork roast out of the freezer instead of chops! hmmmm, SO, I marinated it with some dijon mustard, olive oil and Sierra Nevada beer! cooked it in the oven for about 30min per pound and it was the BEST roast EVER! My husband wanted to know what I did differently and I just have to say, I think it was the beer!

Savitri said...

Glad you had a great time!! No recipes but I do love looking at your work!

phoebe said...

Wowee! I can feel your energy and excitement for copic markers, so happy for you. Looking forward to your copic creations. I heard so much awesome stuffs about those markers, makes me want to buy/try at least one for now.

Joella said...

Cindee Stacey said...

OOOOHHHHHH, I would LOVE to get Copic certified!! I can use my to a certain degree, but I'm sure there's so much more to them than we know!! I wish they would come to Chicago!!! Thanks for sharing!

Natasha said...

Woot, I can always use more Copics.

One of my favorite quick and easy recipes is Greek Cous Cous salad. Cook your couscous, add chopped tomatoes or grape tomatoes, chopped cucumber, bits of feta cheese, olives if you like that sort of thing, red onions, and then toss some Italian or Greek salad dressing overtop, and mix. For extra protein and fiber, add a drained can of chickpeas. It's SO good!

Shannon said...

Sounds like you had a blast at copic school. I would love to do this sometime!

Easy crockpot recipe:
Chicken pieces or chicken breast skinless
1 jar salsa
1 package taco seasoning
Mix salsa and taco in crock pot with chicken, 4 hours High, 8 hours low
Remove chicken, mix in 1 cup sour cream with remaining salsa mixture, serve sauce over chicken or shred chicken off bones and serve in wraps with sauce and veggies

Sarah said...

I'm horrible at cooking, so I won't share any recipes! But I'll read everyone else's and cross my fingers to win!!

Pearlann66 said...

OK so now that I am totally starved for food and copic markers!
I was viewing another blog and the subject of butternut squash soup came up. i found a relatively simple recipe for it.

1 butternut squash, peeled, cubed
1 leek or large onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
dry white wine or vermouth
2 tbls. flour
3 cups soy milk
frozen corn (optional)
salt to taste

Possible garnishes : dill weed and low fat sour cream

Steam butternut squash in vegetable steamer. Reserve 1 cup of the steaming liquid for the soup. Meanwhile braise the onion or leek and red pepper in the wine or vermouth. Add the flour and stir constantly to prevent sticking. Add more wine if neccessary to keep it the mixture moist. Add 1 cup of reserved liquid from steamed squash and 3 cups of skim milk. Add steamed butternut squash and simmer all together so that milk is heated through and soup begins to thicken a little.

InkyChick said...

I love copics and wish I lived closer so I could get copic certified. I"m not very good at the different advanced techniques, but just by using copics, my images look good! :-)

Thanks for a great giveaway!

Faith said...

Yea Copics!!! Glad you had a great time... I was thinking of going, but I'm not very good at coloring yet and I didn't want to feel like, "what's she doing here". Now I wish I did... and very tempted to go to Medford.... yikes...

I was going to post about the BBQ Pork... but Donna alread did. I do the same recipe, but I add BBq sauce all over the pork roast. I love cooking in the crock pot (when I remember to start early enough...lol) Nice to have everything done and waiting for the guys...

Melanie said...

Cambria,
Can't wait to see what you make with your new Copic Talents. My recipe today is one I tried at my Stamp camp this weekend that I saw on an SCS forum. TO DIE FOR YUMMY!

9x13 size pkg of fudge brownie mix and 1 pkg. Andes Mints.
Bake brownies according to package directions and when you pull them out of the oven lay the Andes on top and let them melt then spread them like icing, let cool and enjoy. They are so gooey and just the right touch of mint. Enjoy! Melanie

MaryBeth said...

I would love, love, love a chance to win some coptic markers!!!!! I'm so glad you had a great time and I'm waiting for you to show us what you've learned!

Grill or broil
YUMMY!

Basement Stamper said...

How generous of them go give you some giva-aways!! I am making this tonight and it takes an ounce of work to get it in the oven. Crush 1.5 cups french fried onion rings (like you put on top of green bean casserole). Dip chicken breasts in 1 beaten egg and then cover both sides with french fried onion rings. Bake at 400 for about 40 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.

Alatáriël Anwamanë said...

I think the easiest recipe I have is for Kookie Brittle. I double the recipe to make a 13X9 cake pan.

1 c. butter
1 c. white sugar
2 c. flour
1 pkg chocolate chips
1 c. walnuts (optional)

Mix together all ingredients. Press into an 8X8 cake pan (double the recipe for a 13X9 pan). Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

It's really good warm with french vanilla or vanilla bean ice cream.

Tammy said...

Can't wait to see your handy work:).
My favorite recipe is:

Dining Out

Round the kids up
Strap em' in
Rev the engine and take off
Thoroughly jostle all stomachs
(done best with sharp turns)
Circle to get closest spot
Slam it in Park
Haul em' in
Order n' eat
Pay and leave

Tammy

Lorie said...

Oh, my gosh...that sounds like so much fun! Like everyone else I'd love to win some COPICS! Here is a recipe a friend gave me. We call it Cheese Crack ('cuz it is so good you can't stop eating it!)

1lb sausage (I use the Jimmy Dean roll)
8oz jar of salsa
2 cans Campbell's Fiesta Nacho Cheese soup
4oz green chiles
onion

Brown sausage and onion. Then add soup, salsa, and green chilies. Simmer for a bit until warm. Serve with tortilla or really any type of chip.

YUMMY!!!

Theresa said...

Here's the greatest recipe...it's called Taco Soup:

Brown 1# ground turkey with
1 small onion chopped. When browned, add 1 package of taco seasonings and one package of Ranch dressing mix. Dump in the following:
1 can pinto beans
1 can chili beans (I use medium)
2 cans ro-tel tomatoes (mild)
1 bag (16oz) corn
Bring to boil, heat through and enjoy. This is taco soup and it is from weight watchers. All of my family and friends don't realize that it's from weight watchers and beg me to make it whenever there is a get-together! It's great!

Julie said...

I have been dying to try out Copics, but so scared to invest the $$. Love , love, love your blog - I check it out everyday!

leilanne said...

OK, for an easy recipes, try this one. Grab a roll of pillsbury crescent dough out of the package but let it in a roll. Cut the roll by 1/2" slices and set in a round pyrex dish. Then, mix well 1 cup of brown sugar with 1 1/2 cup of 15% cream (35% is just better, but maybe too much), and 1 teaspoon of butter. Pour on your roll slices and bake 15-18 min in a 350°F oven, or until well baked (pale gold).

Then, let this out of your kids eyes and also from yours if it's not dessert's time.

«Would like to hear from you if you try it :O)

OOOOOH, I would LOVE to win these! And I can probably safely say that most ALL of us would be doing the same thing as you in meeting Marriane, and watching the Copics work their magic!

Thanks for the chance!

Allison said...

Wow, sounds like you had a great time. I would love to win some copics! Sorry no recipe, I'm lazy and everything seems difficult to me so when I want something really easy I run to McDonalds!

Annapurna said...

Looks like you had fun! Thanks for sharing with us.

Wife2TJ said...

Sounds like SO MUCH fun!!!I don't own any copics but would LOVE to try them out. Can't wait to see your new cards with what you've learned. Thanks so much for giving us all a chance to win these! -Samantha

I am not a good cook at all (you can ask my dh for assurance on that. lol!) so I don't have any recepies for you. One day I will learn how to cook :-)

laura w said...

Oh how I wish they had these classes near me, sounds like fun! I love looking at your blog and checking out your awesome coloring and sewing skills, you rock!

Cat said...

ok-easy recipe [but not necessarily lo-cal]
6-8 chicken tenders, browned in olive oil
1 small can mushrooms
1 can artichoke hearts, chopped
1 jar alfredo sauce [i like sun dried tomato]
brown chicken [cut into bite sized pieces if desired]. add mushrooms, artichokes and sauce. stir in 1 cup shredded italian cheeses. heat through. serve over pasta [i like bowties]. add chopped tomatoes on top for garnish. YUM!

Bethany Paull said...

Oh, how I wish they would have this class near me. I'll just have to watch your blog for tips.

LMinVT said...

O>O>O pick me, I don't have Copics yet. Seems like every blogger is using them. I can't believe how inspiring the blog community is. You must be having a blast. OK you said you like recipes. I have a one in my repertoire that is a sure thing. It is Chicken with tomatoes and white wine sauce.

I use 4 boneless chicken breasts, but really any type bone in or whatever. I will even cut up the chicken to make it go further.

Heat 3 Tablespoons of olive oil and salt and pepper your chicken. Brown your meat until golden brown. Top with one chopped onion and 3 garlic cloves and cook until softened. Add a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes (this is forgiving, I used home canned quart) and 1 cup of dry white wine (also forgiving I will use sherry in a pinch.) Simmer for at least 45 minutes. Serve with rice, the sauce is awesome on the rice. This recipe is alot of bang for your buck. I have served this to guests, they never know how easy it is. Thanks for the opportunity for candy. Take care, Laura

Jana M said...

How fun, Cami! I wish I could take a class like that.

Here's my easy recipe for Alfredo...

* 1/2 cup butter
* 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
* 2 teaspoons garlic powder
* 2 cups milk
* 6 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
* 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Melt butter in a medium, non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Add cream cheese and garlic powder, stirring with wire whisk until smooth. Add milk, a little at a time, whisking to smooth out lumps. Stir in Parmesan and pepper. Remove from heat when sauce reaches desired consistency. Sauce will thicken rapidly, thin with milk if cooked too long. Toss with hot pasta to serve.

My kids love LOVE this sauce. We add some shrimp or chicken and broccoli and serve over pasta!

Oh, how much FUN! I was just reading about certification class they will be having in Wisconsin...may have to go visit my son and "drop by"... I'd LOVE to win some Copics and try them out...heard so many awesome things. Here is an easy Weight Watcher Crockpot recipe...

Cranberry Chicken

chicken breasts
1 can whole berry cranberry sauce
1/2 bottle Kraft Light Done Right Catalina Dressing
1 package dry onion soup mix

Cook in crockpot on low about 8 hours, or until you get home!

Tami said...

Oh, sounds like you had fun! I will be checking back often to see you show off all that you learned! I have a few copics but am not all that confident with them. Thanks for the chance.

Stephanie said...

Wow! This is an amazing opportunity! Thanks so much girl! You are awesome!

Paula Wade said...

Ooooh! I don't have any Copic Markers yet so this would be FAB!

Okay, for a chance to win I'll give you the recipe for my Spaghetti Sauce (it's a bit spicy but the BEST!!).

Russell Family Spaghetti Sauce:

Cut up 3-4 HOT Italian sausage links into 1" pieces and in a big pot saute them with chopped garlic, a little red wine (oh 1/2-1 cup or so), some dried Italian seasonings (oregano, basil whatever suits your fancy), throw in some Garlic salt and some onion powder AND some crushed red pepper. Obviously the red pepper is a big factor in the spicy-ness...add more if you want it nose running "hot" and not so much if ya don't. The hot italian sausage will really kick it up as well and is a necessity for this sauce. As the sausage is cooking I sometimes add a little water from time to time to keep everything juicy as they cook up. When sausages are browned nicely add one big can of tomato sauce to the pot and then in the blender put one big can of whole canned tomatoes w/ juice and blend...then add that to your pot. Stir up good so all the yummy sausage "juice" is mixed in and cover and let simmer for at least 3-4 hours (stirring as necessary). This is a thin sauce so I like to serve it over Rigatoni noodles instead of the thin, long spaghettini type noodles. It catches more of the sauce that way. Anyway, it's DELISH and my favorite sauce in the whole world. Most people that have had it LOVE it. My husband says it's why he married me! LOL!

Ham & Beans
First thing in the morning, dump one bag of dry Great Northern Beans in a large pot and cover with water. Let beans soak all day. About 2 hours before dinnertime, cut up a ham steak slice into bite sized pieces. Add ham to beans in water and bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, cover and simmer until beans are tender.


Copics look like TOO much fun!

SusanH said...

Well, since our theme is candy (I want copics!!!) I have a recipe involving candy - that is sooooooo good.

Take a roll of chocolate chip cookie dough, the premade stuff you get at the grocery store, and spread it into a square baking dish. Bake per package directions until it is almost done (about a minute less than the package says). Then slice up a package of the small snickers bars (into about 1/2 inch slices) and put on top of the cookie dough. Pop it back into the oven and finish baking (or until the candy is melted). Take it out, I spread my melted snickers bars around a little, let it cool, and cut into 1 inch bars - they are beyond good!!

Thanks for the chance and hope you like the recipe!

Mollie said...

How exciting! I've never played with any of the Copic Markers, but am thinking I need to get some soon:o) My friend sent me this receipe...

YUMMMM!!!!! These are sooooooo good!!!

Market Street potatoes

8 to 10 baby white or red potatoes
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/8 cup diced green or red bell pepper
1/8 cup diced yellow onion
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place whole, unpeeled potatoes in a large pan. Cover with water and bring to boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are still firm, but not soft or overdone. Immediately drain and place in ice water to stop the cooking.
Leaving the skin on, cut potatoes into one-inch chunks. In a bowl, combine potatoes, cheese, peppers and onions. Season with salt and pepper. Toss lightly to combine.
Place mixture in a shallow baking pan that has been lightly coated with nonstick cooking spray. Cover tightly with foil and bake 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake 5 minutes longer.
Makes 4 servings.

Sorry Cami, I don't have any recipes because I don't cook. No joking, my husband does the cooking. I burn everything I even try to make so I just leave the oven/stove off until he gets home.
I'm a special needs, high maintenance kind of woman! LOL!!

Wish I could learn a few tips from you. If I lived closer I'd be knocking on your door!

I'd love to learn how to use copics. I'm not loving my copic sketch markers, but that is because I don't know how to use them!

I love using my crock pot. I'll have to type up my favorite recipe and email it to you. Chicken and Muchroom Gravy. YUM!

Cindy said...

This recipe is definitely easy.. not mine though(found it on the the internet) and make it all the time.

Better Than Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce

1/2 cup butter
2 cups heavy cream
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 t white pepper
1/2 c grated or shredded parmesan
3/4 cup shredded mozarella

Melt butter in saucepan; add cream, pepper, garlic and parmesan. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add Mozarella and stir often. That's it! How much easier could it get.

I mixed in a few shakes of ground nutmeg at the end and it was a nice improvement. Sometimes I add chicken and sometimes shrimp, depending on the guests and my mood!

Add me to the list of Copic wannabees!!! I know it is going to happen in my house soon, just trying to figure the best way to order! I know this isn't a recipe, but since I've been swamped with taxes I needed something fast to make for dinner yesterday...COSTCO Teriyaki Chicken. Honestly, I don't think I could made my very own version better and all I had to do was line a cookie sheet with tin foil, spray with cooking spray and bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes...too easy.

StinkerbellSteph said...

Sounds like an amazing weekend! I'm so jealous! Can't wait to see all you created & learned.

My easy recipe:
Pour in a heap of flour in a pie plate (sorry no measuring here but, I'd say at least a cup.)

Sprinkle in at least a Tablespoon of Italian seasoning & stir it together until the flour looks speckled.

In another pie plate pour in Creamy Caesar dressing (I usually use low fat Paul Newman's.) Creamy is the key though. Oily won't work as well.

Dredge pork chops and cover w/the flour mixture then the Caesar dressing & then place in a baking dish. Repeat until all the pork chops are coated.

Then sprinkle Shredded Parmesan cheese all over the top of the chops.

Bake at 375 until cooked. Usually about 45 mins. Parm cheese will turn into a delicious crust.

We serve it over rice or pasta so that the chops' sauce flavors the starch.

Takes 5 mins to prep but, tastes super good.

I love, love, love your blog Cami! You have given me so many great ideas!

Here's my easy recipe:

The BEST Mac/Corn Casserole
1 can cream style corn
1 can regular corn, undrained
1/2 cup butter, or margarine, cubed
1 cup macaroni or shells
1 cup Velveeta, cubed
(can throw in 1/2 cup of diced ham to make this an entree)

Throw it all together and bake at 350 for one hour uncovered - stir a couple of times.

How's that for easy? :o)

Connie Jean said...

Oh wow... how cool is that? I'd love to get some copics. Perhaps someday. What awesome candy and I know someone is going to love that!

Here is a recipe that I got from Pioneer Woman recently. I made it the other night and it is TO DIE FOR. But be forewarned, it is NOT for those on a diet... LOL

Crescent Rolled Apples (half batch ... perfect for just a couple)

1 granny smith apple, peeled and cored... sliced into 8ths
1 can of crescent rolls
1 stick of butter
3/4 c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
cinnamon
Mountain Dew

Preheat oven to 350F. Take each slice of apple and roll in the crescent roll. Take baking dish (I used 8 x 10 for a half batch) and coat with a little butter. Put each crescent rolled apple into the dish.
Melt the 1 stick butter, add sugar and vanilla. Stir well. Pour over crescents. Drizzle a little over a cup of Mountain Dew around the edges. Top with cinnamon.
Bake for 40 minutes. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.

Just tell me that doesn't make a mouth water??? LOL... have a wonderful week !

Where can you buy copic markers? Are there any classes on these in UT? I'd love to win these....who doesn't want more card making items?

Any braising beef
2 cans of Glen Muir basil and garlic diced tomatoes

Rub roast or thick cuts of beef in flour, salt and pepper. Brown on all sides.
Spray inside of crock pot with oil. Put one can of tomatoes in crockpot, then put browned beef on top and cover with another can of tomatoes. Let cook for 6 hours or more. Serve with rissotto or mashed potatoes.

Jennifer said...

Oof...I don't cook so here is my recipe: Take two pieces of bread from the breadbox. Take out the peanut butter. Take some jam from the refrigerator. Spread the peanut butter on one of the pieces of bread. Then spread the jam on the OTHER piece of bread. Smoosh the two pieces of bread together, slice either down the middle or on the diagonal. For special occasions, you can slice it again and put in some fancy toothpicks with the frou frou on top.

hehe!

I can't wait to see what all you colored! :)

I don't usually remember recipes, but this one I just made this weekend and because it is so simple, I can actually remember it! Roasted Asparagus:
Clean and snip asparagus and spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle with Olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper over them. Bake at 425 deg for 10 - 15 minutes or until tender. So simple, but I think the way I will make asparagus from now on! Enjoy!
Can't wait to see what all you learned at the Copic class!
