I saw this recipe and it reminded me of the pork tenderloin from my favorite restaurant Prarie Fire Grille. I knew I had to try it right away! It wasn't the same as PFG, but it was good and SO easy! This is a great weeknight meal. I served this with some jalapeno-jack cheese grits.

I saw this recipe on Southern Living's website and put it on my list to try. I marinated the pork in Dale's for about 30 minutes before I seasoned and wrapped it in bacon. This was simple to make and tasted fantastic. This would be a quick and easy weeknight meal. I am already thinking of variations of this meal - Italian seasoning and prosciutto are on the top of the list.

I follow this great blog called StickTo Your Hips Linda has so many fabulous recipes! After looking at all her recipes, I chose this one to try first. WOW! This was so good and extremely easy to make. I loved how the cinnamon topping dropped down into the cake and made little craters of cinnamon goodness! This cake got two thumbs up from us.

This is the second recipe I've made from the Smoky Mountain Cafe blog. I love to make homemade focaccia bread on the weekend to go with our chicken and/or pasta. I really liked this recipe. I loved all the herbs in the bread and the cheese and rosemary on top! We didn't use any dipping oil, but I think it would put this bread over the top. This is very simple to make; mix it and forget it.

I don't usually eat a traditional breakfast, but lately I've been wanting sausage and biscuits. I don't like to spend a lot of time cooking breakfast (since I don't usually eat it) so I thought I would try these sausage biscuit pinwheels. I've made something similar to this with crescent rolls and I thought it would be even better with buttermilk biscuits! I was right. I really liked these little pinwheels. They were really easy to make, especially since I used canned biscuits! I will be making these again very soon.

This is a variation on the Sister Schubert Ham Delights that I love to make. I liked this version a lot better. I liked the individual bites - easy to eat (probably too easy). You could add some cheese to the top of the bites before they bake - I forgot to take my cheese to Auburn so I didn't add it this time. These would be good served with some extra honey mustard or ranch for dipping. I dipped mine in the Tenda Chick sauce that we had at the tailgate (like Guthrie's & Zaxby's).

Tadd declared these bars the best dessert I've ever made. I don't know about that, but they are really awesome! They were super easy to make and the flavors went together perfectly. I always say that I don't like pumpkin, but I think I actually do like it because I really enjoyed these bars. I left the white chocolate drizzle off of the bars since I was taking them to a tailgate (didn't want it to melt). These bars would be perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

A couple of weeks ago Katherine from the Smoky Mountain Cafe blog left me a comment. I went and checked out her blog and she has a ton of fantastic recipes! This was the first one I tried. We had this as a pre-game snack and it was fantastic. I upped the garlic and butter a little bit from Katherine's original recipe. It was nice and garlicy without being too much garlic. It was easy to make and I know it would be a hit at any gathering. I liked this better than our usual artichoke dip.

This month's Nutella Challenge recipe is an Easy Nutella Pie. This was quick and easy to put together. I loved the toffee bits mixed into the pie. I cheated and used a pre-made graham cracker crust. Another successful Nutella experiment!

Pete & Ashley came to visit this past weekend. Ashley & I went to Sips N Strokes and painted Aubie, and the guys went to see Widespread Panic Friday night. The Auburn game started at 11:00 on Saturday so I made us a quick and easy lunch. I've been wanting to try the Pampered Chef BBQ Pork Tenderloin sliders for a while and I thought this was the perfect opportunity. I cooked the pork for 8 minutes (could have only done 6 minutes) in the Deep Covered Baker and served the pork on Pretzel Rolls or Hawaiian Rolls. I thought the sandwiches were great! I would definitely make this again. Super easy and tasted great!!

I saw these great little muffins over on the famous Bakerella's blog. I thought these would be great for Saturday morning breakfast. Tadd loved them. I served them with warm syrup. These were so easy to make. I thought they were just as easy as a box mix. I will make these again.

I saw this recipe over on Cookie Madness and I knew I had to make them for Tadd right away. These were SO good. Probably the best M&M cookie I've ever made. I doubled the recipe so I had enough to share with Anne. I will definitely be making these again! You should make them this weekend for a football party!
