I have had an EBAY account for years. I never really started using it until recently. I just won a bid for several rolls of Nature themed deco tapes. These tapes are nice and great for decorating your packages. What I can't use will go up for sale on ETSY in http://www.gnormyle.etsy.com/ Glenna's Garden. I put in a couple more bids for various other craft supplies. What got me hooked back into EBAY was last week I was bidding for a Cricut machine, they normally sell for $300.00 and the bidding in the last hour was at $30.00 I just had to have it so I played the bidding game down to the last second and at $51.00 I was out bid by $1.00. It sold for $52.00 I lost but maybe that person that won needed it more than me. So now I am keeping my eye on the crafts section at EBAY. I don't have that book EBAY for Dummies but I do have some other books for Dummies. I often find them to be very helpful especially when it comes to technology.  I can see how EBAY is going to be another fun activity to complement my ETSY shop.

Bisquick Recipe for Picnic Chicken


2/3 cup buttermilk

8 boneless skinless chicken breasts (2 1/2 lb)
1 cup Country® Corn Flakes cereal
1 cup Original Bisquick® mix or Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
2 packages (1 oz each) ranch dressing mix (dry)
Cooking spray

1.Heat oven to 400ºF. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.

2.Pour buttermilk into shallow glass or plastic bowl. Add chicken; turn to coat. Let stand 5 minutes.

3.Meanwhile, in 2-quart resealable food-storage plastic bag, crush cereal with rolling pin. Add Bisquick mix and dressing mix (dry) to cereal in bag. Remove chicken from buttermilk; discard buttermilk. Add chicken to cereal mixture. Seal bag; shake to coat.

4.Place chicken on cookie sheet. Spray with cooking spray. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).

Do-Ahead Tip

Bake it the night before, then pack it up for a picnic in the park the next day!


Create a new recipe just by cutting up the chicken! For Oven-Fried Chicken Fingers, cut chicken breast halves crosswise into 1 1/2-inch strips before coating with buttermilk. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Turn strips; bake about 20 minutes longer or until chicken is no longer pink in center.

 (I make this all of the time and everybody always loves it)

  1. Glad you learned something from that experience and as always in life, we don't always get what we want, but if we learn something, it's never a waste of time, right?

    Have a great day, Glenna :-)
