This recipe is from Course Offerings by the Auburn University Campus Club; one of the cookbooks I got for Christmas. I love community cookbooks. I love all the real, down-home recipes that come from real people.
This is the first recipe that I've tried from the book. Actually, Chicken Legs made this for us. It is super simple. It only has a few ingredients and takes minutes to prepare. This would be great for Easter brunch next weekend, a baby shower or even tailgating. We both loved it. We are looking forward to eating our way through the cookbook!

If you follow my blog, you know that I had a slight obsession with Biscoff. I have taken it to a whole new level with these double Biscoff cupcakes - Biscoff cake and Biscoff buttercream. They are amazing! They smell heavenly and taste absolutely incredible. Chicken Legs said was the best cupcake I've ever made. I brought the cupcakes to work and several people said the same thing. WOW! If you are going to try just one Biscoff recipe, make it this one. You won't regret it!

This pizza is low-carb and gluten free. For me, that usually translates into no taste, but this was really good! The "crust" is made with cream cheese, eggs and parmesan cheese. It doesn't sound like it would work, but it does. You can make the crust ahead of time if you are pressed for time. It can be stored in the refrigerator or in the freezer. We were really surprised at how good this pizza was. We both really enjoyed it, and actually didn't miss the traditional crust. It is definitely going in the rotation for pizza night.

This bread is SOOO good. It is the perfect compliment to your favorite pasta. They are super easy and super delicious! They only require a few simple ingredients. You can speed up the thawing time for the frozen bread dough by microwaving the dough for about 30 seconds. We make these all the time. If you are making these for a crowd, double the recipe!

When I saw this recipe on allrecipes.com I couldn't resist trying it. I mean, with a name like "Best Steak Marinade in Existence" how could I not test it out? I have to admit, this actually might be the best steak marinade I've ever had. It is packed full of flavor and doesn't use any crazy ingredients. I already had everything in the pantry to make it. We used this marinade on skirt steak and it was delicious. I plan on trying it on pork tenderloin and chicken (of course) very soon.

My final St. Patrick's Day week recipe is Irish Soda Bread. I know it isn't green, but it is still keeping with the Irish theme, so I'm going with it. This bread was super easy. Chicken Legs actually made it! It only has 4 ingredients and it tastes great. It is especially good with some honey butter slathered on it. I plan on making some cinnamon toast with it for breakfast tomorrow.

Aren't these cupcakes adorable?! I saw Martha Stewart do a cutout heart cupcake for Valentine's Day, and I decided to make a St. Patrick's Day version. The cupcakes were extremely festive and a lot of fun to eat! These couldn't be easier. Just bake the cupcakes, slice off the tops, frost the stumps, cut out a shamrock shape in the tops and reassemble. I used the shamrock cutter that came in my Pampered Chef Creative Cutters set and it was the perfect size (about 1-inch). I used a boxed cake mix and a can of pre made frosting, but feel free to use your favorite homemade cake and frosting recipe. These would be great for a St. Patrick's Day party.

We are continuing the green theme this week with these cute shamrock cinnamon rolls. This only requires one ingredient - a can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls. I unrolled the cinnamon rolls and quickly shaped them into these darling shamrocks. These were so easy and so much fun to eat!
I took some play-by-play photos to help illustrate how I made the shamrock shapes - scroll down for more.
Unroll the cinnamon rolls and roll dough into a long rope - about 12-15-inches long. Form rope into a conversation bubble shape.
Make three bumps in the conversation bubble.
Pinch middle of each bump to make little hearts for the shamrock leaves.
Fluffy gives these two paws up!

In honor of St. Patrick's Day this weekend, I am doing all things green this week. These enchiladas aren't Irish, but they do have green chiles in the sauce. I found this recipe on Pinterest, my favorite place for inspiration.
The original recipe is from Joyful Momma's Kitchen: it was all the rage on Pinterest a few weeks ago. I finally got around to making it and it was incredible! The sour cream sauce on these enchiladas was amazing! We couldn't get enough of it! I used full fat sour cream, I wasn't sure how low fat or fat free would work. Give this a try if you are looking for a good enchilada recipe without cream of chicken soup.
