Sweet Creamy Goodness

Just the other day as I was skimming through Pinterest,  which has become my new addiction, and I noticed this recipe for cream cheese, cinnamon sugar and crescent roll bites.  I followed the link and lo and behold, the easiest dessert recipe I’ve ever encountered.  I tried these out two days ago, and my family pretty much inhaled these, they were so good!

Image

If you’re a fan of pastries and have a bit of a sweet tooth, these are for you.  You can serve these as breakfast, a snack or dessert. It’s really a very versatile food.

Ingredients:

-2 cans pillsbury butter crescent rolls (buy the seamless version if you can find them!)

-2 (8oz) packages cream cheese (softened)

-1 cup sugar

-1 teaspoon vanilla

-1/4 cup butter (melted)

-Cinnamon and sugar (I used about 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tbs cinnamon) 

Instructions: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If you are using a glass pan, adjust the temperature to 325 degrees. Unroll and spread one can of crescent rolls on bottom of ungreased 9×13 inch pan.  If you aren’t using the seamless crescents, be sure to smooth out the seams before adding the filling. Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl. Spread mixture over crescent rolls. Unroll and spread remaining crescent rolls over mixture, being sure to press together any seams. Spread melted butter over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake for 20-30 minutes.

These bad boys turned out heavenly. I will definitely be making these again!

Is the Spring Thaw Lacking in your Freezer?

Every year, people nationwide fight frost buildup in their freezers.  Often times this can be a simple fix, by simply replacing a defrost timer, or other parts.  We always suggest getting an experts opinion before trying to fix your appliance yourself.

Our defrost timer is compatible with many brands and models.

This defrost timer senses the amount of frost buildup on the evaporator using thermistors.  When the control senses that there is too much buildup on the evaporator, restricting airflow, power will be sent to the defrost timer to melt away the frost, fixing the problem.

The Softest Clothes Around!

Hey guys! This is Lindsey, and I’ll be taking over for  Arielle!  I’m so excited to get started with this blog, and share what I know to help you!  We are all sad here at Every Appliance Part to see Arielle leave, but we are also extremely excited for her knowing that she is now doing what she loves, and is happy doing it.

So to start off on this lovely Monday afternoon, I’m sharing an interesting part I stumbled upon.

Are you looking for a replacement washing machine fabric softener dispenser? If so, we have the parts you need. We have this dispenser, which was manufactured by Whirlpool and used universally on many brands and models.  In many cases, washers do not come with dispensers like this that fit on top of your agitator.  This fixes that issue. To install this you will need to pop off the cap on your washer’s agitator, and snap this one back in its place.  If you need help determining if this will fit with your current model, call one of our customer service representatives, and we will be happy to help you look up what you’re looking for.

Feelin’ Hot, Hot, Hot!

Hello to all my avid readers. I just want to take the time today to thank you for reading my posts, it means a lot to me.  I hope you have enjoyed our journey through the appliance world together, and I hope you learned some new things along the way.  Today will be my last blog, but no need to fear Lindsey will be taking over on Monday! So you will still be able to catch up on your appliance news.  I wish you all the best in life, and remember to stay positive through everything. I have enjoyed writing this blog and am sad to see it go, but it is time for me to move on into the field I went to school for. I am excited to start this new journey in my life, and who knows maybe I will start my own personal blog for you all to read.

I will leave you with a great recipe I tried this week, Cucumber Salsa. It has only 16 Calories in ¼ cup, and it tastes so refreshing!

Image

What you will need:

2 cups finely chopped seeded peeled cucumber
1/2 cup finely chopped seeded tomato
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
4-1/2 tsp. minced fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
1/4 c reduced-fat sour cream
1-1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1-1/2 tsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/4 tsp. seasoned salt

Pinch of Chives

In a small bowl combine the first seven ingredients. In another bowl combine the sour cream, lemon juice, cumin, seasoning salt, and chives.  Pour this over the cucumber mixture and toss gently.  Serve with chips, and keep refrigerated.

**If you do not want such a spicy salsa be sure to NOT put in the jalapeno pepper seeds in- this is what causes the spiciness.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it taste amazing! I am so happy I found it.  This will be great for a hot summer day. I hope you all enjoy this recipe and I hope you enjoyed the time reading!

Abracadabra! The Wine Stain Disappeared!

     This weekend was a pretty stressful weekend, so Sunday night I decided I deserved a nice glass of wine- red wine. It was nice and relaxing; until I bumped the table the glass was on and sent the red wine all over our white carpet… Relaxation was over.  I pulled out the carpet cleaner we have and scrubbed away.  Unfortunately it did not get the entire wine stain out; there is a nice light cranberry stain on our carpet now. Luckily for me I found a stain remover kit at work! It is a nice kit; it comes with three different bottles.  Each bottle has a stain remover for specific stains! The first bottle is for water and protein based stains, the second bottle is for petroleum and natural oil based stains, and the third is for pen, ink, marker, and dye stains.

               This little nifty kit also comes with a “Name that Stain Guide” it has a list of items that can be removed and what bottle will remove it. It’s really nice; it says it can even get Kool-Aid out of things! That is awesome.  So I brought the stain remover kit home and gave it a try. And wouldn’t you know… IT TOOK THE STAIN OUT! I was so happy, all the wine was removed.  This didn’t leave a weird odor or texture either which is a bonus.  Over all I would definitely tell everyone to try this out, it even takes pen and markers off of walls. So if you have children that are artists on your walls, give this a try! Happy Monday everyone, come back Wednesday to read some more!

Rainy Days Call for Soup and Movies!

     Hello to all my readers out there! Sorry there was no post on Wednesday, I got so busy at work I forgot to post. 😦 But no worries I am back for recipe Friday and you will not be disappointed.  I am happy to say that there has not been snow here in a week, Woo-hoo! There have however been buckets of rain every single day.  That is okay with me because as the poem goes “April showers bring May flowers!” And who doesn’t love flowers? When it rains outside and it is gloomy all I want to do is cuddle up on the couch with a warm blanket, and a bowl of hearty soup.  My favorite soup is baked potato soup; it is defiantly my comfort food for a rainy day.   So on these rainy dreary days why not try my recipe for baked potato soup!?

 

What you will need:

  • 6 Cups of Chicken Broth 
  • 6 Cups of red potatoes, Cubed ( you may peel them if you like, I prefer to keep the skin on)
  • ½ tsp. Seasoning Salt
  • ¼ tsp. White Pepper
  • ¼ tsp. Ground Red Pepper
  • 1 tbsp. Minced garlic
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, cut into chunks
  • 6-7 Slices of bacon cooked and crumbled
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese (optional for topping)
  • Scallions (optional for topping)

Directions:

  1. Combine chicken broth, potatoes, garlic, peppers, and salt into a large soup pot.
  2. Boil on a medium heat until the potatoes are tender enough to pierce with a fork.
  3. To make the soup thicker you will now need to mash up some of the potatoes to release the starch for a thickening agent.
  4. Add the cup of sour cream and cream cheese
  5. Make sure you reduce to a LOW HEAT
  6. You will now need to stir this very frequently until the cream cheese is fully melted, and the sour cream is stirred in well.
  7. Add the slices of bacon after everything is stirred in. Be sure to leave some slices for garnish.
  8. Serve soup into bowl and top with shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, and scallions.
  9. Enjoy!

 

     Now that you have your soup, pick out your favorite movie and cuddle up on the couch to enjoy your rainy day!  If you need any parts for your stove to make this soup be sure to check out everyappliancepart.com to find just want you need! Come back on Monday to read about the part of the week, happy reading!
