Three Cheese Sausage Quiche




This is my second recipe using Oikos Greek Yogurt. We really loved this quiche. I put it together the night before so all I had to do was pop it in the oven for breakfast. This was a nice guilt-free breakfast; I used low-fat sausage, 1% milk and the greek yogurt is fat-free.

Grilled Greek Yogurt Chicken



My very first "Julie & Julia" moment! A few weeks ago I had a comment from Kristina at Stoneyfield Farms offering to send me some coupons to try their Oikos Greek Yogurt. I've never cooked with Greek Yogurt so I thought this was a great way to try it - free!!

My first recipe was, of course, grilled chicken. We absolutely loved this chicken! This is our new favorite. The chicken was tender and juicy. It had a little tanginess that came from the lemon juice and yogurt. The herbs smelled great while the chicken was grilling. I can't wait to make this again!

Black-Bottom Coconut Bars




The cookie carnival is back! This month's cookie is Martha Stewart's Black-Bottom Coconut Bars. As soon as I saw the recipe, I knew that Tadd was going to love it! These were really simple to make. They turned out wonderful! Nice chocoately base and flavorful coconut macaroon topping - a kicked up coconut macaroon cookie. How can you go wrong with Martha Stewart?!?

Steakhouse Chipolte Macaroni and Cheese

A couple of weeks ago LeAnn left a comment on my blog and listed her blog in the comment. I, of course, went to check it out. I came across a post with the recipe for Fleming's Chipotle Mac & Cheese. I knew this was a recipe that I had to make ASAP since we LOVE Fleming's Chipotle Mac & Cheese. I made a few changes to the recipe to suit our taste. This mac & cheese was creamy and cheesy. The chipotle gave it a nice smoky flavor. We loved it and will definitely make it again (for a special occasion). The original recipe is here on LeAnn's blog.

Cornell Chicken Marinade



I have several chicken recipes on my "to make" list that are marinated with vinegar. I decided to try this one first and see if I liked it. I really liked the chicken. It had a nice tanginess from the vinegar. I did think the vinegar came though a bit much for me - I marinated it overnight. Next time I would just marinate it for a few hours and see if that mellowed out the vinegar. It wasn't overpowering, just more than a "plain chicken" kind of girl liked. Tadd liked it.

Cheddar Bread



This is another recipe from the Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day book. I loved the flavor of this bread. It is really easy to make and takes little attention. I prefer the Roasted Garlic Potato bread we made a couple of weeks ago just because I LOVE garlic. I doubled the amount of cheese and I would add even more next time.

Kahlua Pecan Pie



I saw this recipe on twitter last week. I had a bottle of Kahlua and a frozen pie crust that I needed to use so I decided to try it out. This was very different from our usual recipe with the addition of the evaporated milk. Tadd liked this pie a lot, but he said he prefers the usual pecan pie (Karo's recipe). **He ate almost the whole pie by himself**

Cinnamon Snowballs




I found these cookies over on Cookie Madness. They reminded me of the holidays - I guess it was the cinnamon and pecans. The cookies were light and crunchy. We really liked them and they will most definitely be on my Christmas cookie tray.

Cheesy Ranch Hash-Brown Potatoes



I found this recipe on Paul Deen's magazine website and I thought it sounded really good! I cut the recipe in half since there are only two of us. I used a bag of bacon pieces instead of frying up bacon and I also used a little more cheese than the recipe called for - I mixed in 1 cup of cheese and topped it with about 1/2 cup of cheese. I liked this. Next time I would add more sour cream - probably double it.

Nutella Gooey Butter Cake




This is the second month for the Nutella Challenge sponsored by Bell'alimento. I decided to go with a Nutella Gooey Butter Cake this month. This cake is amazing. We absolutely loved it. It is ooey, gooey, chocolatey goodness! This is a great example to show that good food doesn't have to be complicated. This simple dessert is good enough to be served in a restaurant - at least we think so!

Easy Mexican Dip



This is one of our favorite dips to have during football season. I have to call it Mexican Dip because Tadd doesn't think he likes bean dip. It is so simple to make and it tastes great.

Blackened Chicken with Roasted Garlic Alfredo


Pampered Chef came out with a new Creole seasoning this month and I was lucky enough to recieve a bottle from the consultant as a thank you for her baby shower cake. The first thing I thought about making with the seasoning was blacked chicken alfredo. I had some left-over roasted garlic from the roasted garlic potato bread, so I threw that in too. This was really good. The Creole seasoning had a great flavor but wasn't spicy. This was a really quick weeknight meal.

Ranch Burgers




These burgers were yummy! This will probably be my "go to" burger recipe from now on. They flavor was great and they were easy to put together.
