Yup. You read it correctly. Chicken and Waffle Cupcakes! I recently tried chicken and waffles and now “get” the allure of this Southern treat and wanted to play around with it a bit.
You will need:
- 3/4 cup room temperature unsalted sweet cream butter
- 3 Eggs room temperature
- 2 1/2 cup all-purpose Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 1/2 cup granulated Sugar
- 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1 box of mini waffles
- 1 package of popcorn chicken
- 1 cup room temperature Butter
- 3 cup Powdered Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp maple extract
- 3-5 TBSP heavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 350.
Stir together flour, salt and baking powder.
Set to the side.
In another large bowl add your butter and sugar and mix until creamy and fluffy.
Add your maple and vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
Add in flour mixture slowly and mix until just combined.
Set to the side.
Take your muffin pan and add your cupcake liners.
Fill each cup about 2/3 full.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let sit till cool.
In a large bowl or your stand mixer add your butter, powder sugar, maple extract, vanilla extract and heavy whipping cream
Mix until fluffy.
Frost each cupcake and set aside
Toast your waffles until they are a light crisp
Make a waffle and chicken sandwich by taking two waffle pieces and putting a piece of the popcorn chicken in between and holding them together using a toothpick
Place on top of the cupcake and drizzle with maple syrup.

Miss Sarah wanted a princess Elsa costume for Halloween this year so I shopped around… There was no way I was spending 50, 60, 70 dollars on something that was so poorly made and would only be worn a few times!
So we started with a playdress that I got at a summer garage sale for $1…
It was somebody’s dance recital costume as it’s basically a dressed up leotard!
Now, the big hunt to find fabric to make the cape that drapes behind her… I scored at Walmart! $4.44 a yard.
I quickly did a simple theme all the way around the edge of the fabric. Then I made a large straight stitch across the top side and used it to pull one thread and pucker it.
I knew I wanted the back to look like this:
So I stitched down the wrong side of the cape to the right side of the dress…
All I added then was a silver snowflake pin that I already had, to the front of the dress.
That created one princess Elsa dress for a grand total of $7.66 and one very happy Miss Sarah

I though this was one of the cutest ideas!
Take a yellow glove (think Playtex etc) for protecting your hands while cleaning, and cut the tips of all fingers off! Simply take a marker and draw on minion faces.
You now have Minion finger puppets!
Thanks Pam for sending this picture to me … and to PagingFunMums.com for the great idea!
in comfort level and help me avoid the surgery my aunt had where
she had to have her esophagus re-wrapped on the inside to
replace the acid damage.
I take Omeprazole: thirty pills, with my insurance, runs $35, or $1.16 a pill.
I found a better way to do it!
Walgreen’s has their 42 ct pack of Omeprazole on sale for $17.99 and you get back an $8 RR, basically paying $9.99 or $.23 a pill as it is a larger pack with a smaller price!
This deal comes up every 3 to 4 months and I pick up a few sets. Three boxes means 126 pills, or a four month supply AND instead of paying $140.00 for that, I am now paying $29.97, saving over $100 easily!
Here is the fun part…our prescriptions are not in our $100 monthly budget for personal care or food items. By playing this game, I save about $440 a year on just that one item, picking up 3-4 boxes at a time on the sale and get almost $75 in RRs to use as we please!
I will be getting 3 boxes this week and have $24 in RRs to use at the store over the next two weeks, unless Walgreen’s has a killer deal on produce, LOL!
**They have deals next week where you pay $19.99 a for the same pack and get a $10 Gift card MIR (it took 5 months to get them the last time they did this!) So I prefer the instant gratification of a RR,
What do you do to save on your medications?
I see so many creative and crafty ideas that I keep ideas added to my notebook for future possible gift ideas for my family.
Just look at these cute ideas from last week:
