Graham Cracker Cake

This is a little but of a Pinterest Monday cheat, since I searched this recipe out on pinterest instead of finding it there originally. But my neighbor told me her grandma used to make graham cracker cakes and it sounded delicious and fun. Plus my five year old daughter loves graham crackers with icing. Well,Continue reading “Graham Cracker Cake”

Peanut Butter Cheese Ball

I pinned three different versions of this recipe over the course of the last six months. I guess I like peanut butter and chocolate, huh? Anyways, when I finally made it for my book club, this was delicious. I thought it might have been better as a cheesecake or brownie than as a cheese ball.Continue reading “Peanut Butter Cheese Ball”

Spaghetti Squash in the Crockpot

I’ve been seeing this on pinterest and wondered if it would really work: To be honest, it looks bogus. Just put the whole thing in the crockpot with some water for a couple of hours? That’s it? But I hate slicing a giant raw squash (It hurts my weak American arms) so I tried it.Continue reading “Spaghetti Squash in the Crockpot”

Cookie dough to eat? YES thank you!

I found a recipe on pinterest for cookie dough that is solely to EAT and not to bake. It has no eggs, so there is no fear of salmonella. Not that I’ve ever been particularly afraid of salmonella. See my traditional stance on the eating of raw dough here. But here’s the recipe: Cookie DoughContinue reading “Cookie dough to eat? YES thank you!”

Sausage Florentine Potpie

This recipe (modified from tasteofhome/simple) was delicious. The best thing about it was that the big kids ate the leftovers the next day too. (Seriously!! Like they heated it up in the microwave and ate it after school!!) 1 lb sausage  1-2 tsp dried onion flakes 3 tsp minced garlic from the jar 1 can creamContinue reading “Sausage Florentine Potpie”

The best chocolate cake ever

I made chocolate cake for my book club meeting. My friend Renita gave me the recipe. She said it was called “Better-Than-Sex Chocolate Cake.” I’ll call it Renita’s Cake. We have to keep our “G” ratings around here. When I first tried the cake, I was suspicious, because it doesn’t have any icing. I don’tContinue reading “The best chocolate cake ever”

Apricot and Mustard Chicken

 This is another recipe (slightly modified) from “Simple and Delicious” magazine. It was super-quick, especially served with canned green beans and boxed pasta. (Pasta Roni Angel Hair with Herbs flavor, if you’re interested.) My favorite kind of meals start with “canned” and “boxed.” But I digress. RECIPE 6 chicken tenderloins 1/3 cup honey mustard 3TbspContinue reading “Apricot and Mustard Chicken”
