Bran Muffins

Bran Muffins
As soon as I saw that this month's Tastemaker Program from Foodbuzz.com was courtesy of All-Bran, I knew exactly what I was going to make - my favorite bran muffins!!  I can remember making these muffins all the time when I was growing up.  I loved them.  I haven't made them in many, many years; so I was excited to receive the All-Bran.  I got the original recipe when I went home a few weeks ago and whipped them up this past weekend.  They were as good as I rememeber.  Chicken Legs really enjoyed them as well.  These muffins also reheat well - I had two for breakfast the next day.  I am going to have to make a point of buying bran flakes so I can make these more often. They are really one of my favorite breakfast muffins.

Pioneer Woman's BBQ Meatballs

BBQ Meatballs

I have yet to try a recipe from The Pioneer Woman that we didn't like or actually love for that matter.  She makes wonderful simple meals.  This was no exception. These are very quick and easy to make.  I cut the original recipe down since there are only two of us.  I was really surprised at how much I liked this dish.  I am not a big meatball or meatloaf fan.  We served the meatballs with some mac and cheese.  I should have made an extra baguette to go with this!  Next time!!  This was really great comfort food meal.

Homemade Baguette

Homemade Baguette - on the table in under an hour! Great weeknight homemade bread recipe. Tastes great!

This recipe came from Amy at The Fosted Bake Shop.  Amy said in her post that this was easy and turned out great.  I decided to give it a try.  She wasn't kidding this was the easiest and best bread ever!  I thought it looked like "real" bread that you get in the bakery section at the grocery store.  I love that I could make this after work and have it ready for dinner.  5 minutes to mix together, rise for 30 and bake for 15 - what's not to love?!?!  I won't be buying baguettes at the store anymore.  This was a huge hit!  I cut Amy's original recipe in half and only made one baguette.

Amazing Hard Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies

 Hard Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies sound disgusting, but they are my new favorite chocolate chip cookie!  This is coming from someone who has never made a hard boiled egg, much less eaten a hard boiled egg (blah)!  I was amazed at how great these cookies turned out. 

I saw this recipe over on Cookie Madness years ago, but it was Katrina's post over on Baking and Boys after Easter that finally convinced me that I needed to make them.  I am sad it took me so long to try them.  The cookies are perfect - crunchy on the outside; soft and chewy on the inside.  Don't tell people that these have hard boiled eggs in them before they try them.  If they are like some of my picky friends, they won't try them.  I guess it would be their loss because these are the best!  I am buying some oatmeal this week so I can try the hard boiled egg oatmeal cookies next!

Foodbuzz 24, 24, 24: National Grilled Cheese Month

Grilled Cheese

April is National Grilled Cheese Month.  I wanted to experiment with turning some of our favorite foods into grilled cheese sandwiches.  I wanted to see if I could make a simple grilled cheese sandwich into something good enough to serve to company.  I made six different types of grilled cheese sandwiches.

7UP Pound Cake

7UP Pound Cake

I've seen this recipe on the web for years.  I finally decided that I had to make it when the Pioneer Woman posted it on her blog.  She raved about it, and I already know that everything she makes is amazingly yummy.  This cake was no exception - it was fantastic!  We both loved it.  It is even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!  The perfect dessert for a nice spring or summer day.

7UP Biscuits

7up Biscuits Recipe - Light and fluffy. They only have three ingredients - THE BEST biscuits EVER! We make these at least twice a week. SO quick and easy!!

What?  Yep, that's right, 7up biscuits.  Some places on the internets call these Popeye's Biscuits - I guess they taste like the biscuits from the chicken place.  All I know is that these were the best biscuits that I've ever made - hands down!  They were light and fluffy.  They only have three ingredients - quick and easy!  We had them with dinner but I will make them again for breakfast.  Chicken Legs wants a biscuit with bacon and cheese - YUM!

Ultimate Chicken Fingers

Ultimate Chicken Fingers - baked parmesan crusted chicken tenders - on the table in 20 minutes!

Best chicken fingers EVER!  They really are the Ultimate Chicken Fingers!  The flavor is great!  The coating isn't too heavy and it doesn't fall off when you eat it.  I found this recipe on the back of the Bisquick box and I'm glad I saved it.

Bruschetta Chicken

Bruschetta Chicken

This post is actually from Mama Hen!  I went down to my parents house this past weekend and Mama Hen cooked lunch on Sunday before I headed back to The Ham.  This recipe comes from her favorite cookbook, The Diabetes Cookbook.  She says that she loves this cookbook because they flavor the food with herbs instead of fats.

It was a beautiful day, so we decided to have have lunch outside on the deck. The chicken was quick and easy to prepare and tasted great.  The topping was very flavorful.  We all really enjoyed the dish.  I plan on making this at home for Chicken Legs.

Do-Ahead Egg and Sausage Bake

Do-Ahead Egg and Sausage Bake

I only cook breakfast on the weekends and it isn't guaranteed that I'll make it.  I am not a morning person and I love to sleep in on the weekends.  This recipe is perfect for me.  I make this the night before and just pop it in the oven when I wake up and then hop back in the bed while it bakes.  This was really good - Chicken Legs could have eaten it all himself.  I would double the cheese next time - a little cheese never hurt anything!  It is a great breakfast recipe if you have overnight guests.  We had this for breakfast, but I think it would be really good for dinner too.

Spicy Honey Chicken

Spicy Honey Chicken

This was our second spicy chicken of the week.  It is also another quick chicken dish because it uses a rub instead of a marinade.  We grilled the chicken and then broiled them in the oven with the honey glaze - I did want to have to clean the grill after the sticky honey melted on it.  The chicken was very juicy and flavorful.  The heat wasn't overpowering by any means.  It was the perfect combination of sweet and spicy.  It was also easy and low-cal if you care about that kind of stuff.

Ranch Mac and Cheese

Ranch Mac and Cheese
 

I have been on a mac and cheese kick lately.  I don't know why, because I don't typically each mac and cheese - but, it is what it is.  I saw this recipe over on Noble Pig and I put it on the list to try ASAP.  The recipe said it was adapted from Taste of Home, so I went to their website to start from the original recipe.  We LOVED this mac and cheese.  I knew we would - who doesn't like Ranch?!  The sauce was perfectly cheesy, and it was nice and creamy from the sour cream.  This was another easy roux-free mac and cheese.  I think this would be a great main dish if you add some bacon and chicken - maybe even buffalo chicken!

Honey Chipotle Glazed Chicken

Honey Chipotle Glazed Chicken

I saw this recipe floating around the internets and I immediately wanted to try it.  It comes from Bobby Flay's Grill It! cookbook.  I love Bobby Flay and I thought this recipe sounded easy enough for a weeknight dinner. 

This was my first time cooking with chipotle peppers and it turns out that we really liked them.  (I have another recipe with chipotles already lined up) We both agreed that the next time we make this that we would double the honey in the sauce.  We prefer our sauce a little sweeter than Bobby.  Overall, this was a delicious chicken dish that was sweet and spicy (not too spicy though).

Reeeeeeer Monday

I finally caught my prey - McDreamy!  I was lucky enough to meet Patrick Dempsey at the Barbers Motorsports Park on Saturday.  He was so nice and SO HOT!  He is just as beautiful in person as he is on TV.   It was the most exciting day of my life!

He's touching me - I can never wash my shirt EVER! LOL!!

Stove Top Mac-n-Cheese

Stove Top Mac-n-Cheese

I originally saw this recipe over at The Wicked Noodle. It looked so good and creamy that I couldn't resist making it myself.   I noticed that the recipe came from Alton Brown, so I went to the food network site to get the original recipe.  This was really good mac-n-cheese and it was incredibly easy to make!  I think it is perfect for an after work side dish.  This dish is also "Kid Approved".  I gave the leftovers to a friend and her son LOVED it.  He kept asking for more.  I know how he felt, this mac-n-cheese was hard to stop eating!
