Christmas Family Traditions: Spreading Cheer with Betty Crocker Cookies
The Holiday Season is upon us! It is my absolute favorite time of year, but it sure is busy isn’t it? As mothers we run things. We get things done, but as I am strolling up and down the Christmas aisles at Walmart with my littlest one in tow… I start to think about what is really important this season: Christmas family traditions, and spreading cheer. What is a better way to do that than with sugar cookies decorated by tiny humans? Haha. They might not be pretty and perfect, but they are cute and delicious!
The last 2 years my toddler and I have decorated sugar cookies… and of course shared them with guests, but I really want to teach my kids what the Christmas season is all about. They will get to feel how good it is when you spread holiday cheer. We decided to spruce up our sugar cookie game without the stress by using these quick Betty Crocker cookies.
Anyone else have “Pizza Friday” at their house? We sure do! Our family loves pizza. Going out for pizza or ordering delivery can take a toll on the budget, so I wanted to try to recreate one of our favorites at home.
This chicken pesto is one of my favorite dishes because it is so simple, and it satisfies without being heavy. The tomato and pesto make it a great summertime dinner, as long as you don’t mind using your oven. When I am in a crunch, this is my go to meal. It only has 4 ingredients! It is probably the easiest thing I make.
We eat a lot of chicken around here. These crockpot chicken fajitas have to be my favorite. They are colorful, flavorful, and scrumptious. Something just makes me feel like a better mom when I serve a colorful dinner. Anyone else feel this way?

My recipes are for the cooking impaired. If a dish requires more than about 5 ingredients then it will not be served in this household. I believe in letting the kiddos help. Making a meal together can create an opportunity to bond as a family. Make a mess, laugh, and enjoy. Grab your aprons and get to it!
Crockpot meals are great for letting the kids “cook” with you because you don’t have to work near heat. I cut the onion and green peppers, and let my son add it to the crockpot before I even turn it on. Since I have been letting him make dinner with me, he always volunteers to help me in the kitchen. Hopefully this will extend into his teenage years. Fingers Crossed! Haha 🙂
Slice the peppers and onions. Put half in the crockpot then place your chicken on top. It can be frozen or thawed. Take the other half of your sliced onion and peppers, and sprinkle them on top of the chicken. I sprinkle the Montreal Steak Seasoning on top until there is an light layer across the whole thing. Your family might like more or less depending on how spicy you want it. I go for a more mild flavor.
Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours or until the chicken shreds easily.
I just use two forks to pull apart the chicken, and then I stir the mixture up in the crockpot.
I like to toast the buns because the mixture tends to make the bread a little soggy, but it also tastes just as delicious on regular bread. (Sometimes I can't wait for toasted bread, this stuff is too yummy!)
Scoop the desire amount onto your bread of choice.
Add cheese if you like! Sometimes I like to put shredded mozzarella on top, but it is optional 🙂
I usually serve these sandwiches with fries and/or a salad, and enjoy the yumminess!
P.S. The leftovers are great to make sandwiches for lunch!
