Strawberry Yogurt Cake

This was our Sunday night treat and seriously, you need to try this recipe!  It was divine!!!!  The only thing I'd change is make a little less glaze.  It doesn't need that much, but the lemon is a perfect touch to this cake!  It was so dang moist!  love it!
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 Tb. lemon juice, divided
zest of 1 lemon
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour, divided
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
8 oz. plain or vanilla, Greek yogurt
12 oz. fresh strawberries, diced
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 325*. Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan. Sift together the 2 ¼ cups of flour, baking soda and salt. Mix in the lemon zest and set aside. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 1 Tbsp. lemon juice. Alternate add the flour mixture and the yogurt, until just mixed. Toss the strawberries in the remaining ¼ cup of flour. Gently mix them into the batter.  Pour the batter into the Bundt pan. Bake 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool at least 20 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Once cooled whisk together the remaining 2 Tb. of lemon juice and the powdered sugar. Drizzle over the top of the cake.  Enjoy!

Garlic Sauce Crockpot Chicken

I discovered a new crock pot recipe for the family Sunday dinner.  We took it over to Carol's for dinner and it was a hit.  I made a few alterations, so here's my version of our dinner....
 Garlic Sauce Crockpot Chicken
1 large package of fresh chicken tenders
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
2 cups sour cream
1/2 pound fried bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup flour
2 Tbsp. minced garlic (I buy it in a large jar at Sam's Club!)
Lots of salt and lots more pepper
Mix up the sauce in the crockpot, toss in the chicken, stir and cover the chicken with the sauce.  Cook on low for 5-6 hours.  We served it over hot rice.  Everyone loved it!  Enjoy!
