Halloween Treats!

My son's class Halloween party was today and I was in charge of the treats.  I had fun looking through Pinterest (where else??) to find some cute, different ideas that were a little healthier to fit with the school policies.  I came up with these fun treats that took no time at all to prepare and the kids LOVED them!! 
First up, banana ghosts.  Too cute!!  All I did was slice the bananas in half, put a Popsicle stick in the flat end, roll in melted vanilla almond bark, and put chocolate chip eyes on them.  Then, I put them on wax paper on a cookie sheet and froze them overnight.  Love them!!
 Jack-o-lantern faces on little cuties!  :)

 A jack-o-lantern and a ghost.  Fun, fun!
 Last, but not least were the witch hands.  HILARIOUS!!  I just peeled carrots and put sliced almonds on the tips with a little bit of cream cheese to make them stick.  Then, I just poured some ranch in the bowl and ta-da!  
It doesn't get easier than that!  Happy Halloween!!  Enjoy!  :)

Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken

I needed a quick chicken recipe this week and found this from Moms Who Think that I had printed off quite a while ago.  There are only 4 ingredients and you might even have them on hand.  It took no time at all to prepare and tasted great.  If you need a quick meal, this is the one for you!
Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 package Good Seasons Italian Dressing
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
(I cut this recipe in 1/3 and only made two chicken breasts. My 5 year old even loved it!)

Preheat oven to 400.  Mix cheese, dressing mix and garlic powder.  Moisten chicken breast with water; coat with cheese mixture.  Place in shallow baking dish.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
So easy and good...my kind of recipe!  Enjoy!  :)
