    Calzone

    I saw this on pinterest and tried it out. It was so good!! I forgot how much I love my pizza dough recipe. I used my pizza dough recipe for my bread maker warm water – recipe calls for 3/4 cups, I use 1 cup oil – recipe calls for 1 tbsp, I use 2 tbsps sugar 1 tbsp salt 1 1/2 tsp dry milk 1 tbsp flour 2 1/4 cups, recipe calls for bread flour but I prefer to use all purpose for my pizza dough, I just like the way the crusts tastes with it active dry yeast 1 tsp After that was done I rolled it out…

    Cheeseburger Casserole

    I don’t have a picture but it was YUMMY!! Brown the meat, I did a pound but next time I would do at least 1.5, drain, then put in a casserole dish and season to your liking Next, I cut up 1 pickle and mixed that in. I only did one because Ethan doesn’t like pickles Then mix together 3 eggs, 3/4 cup bisquick, and 1 1/2 cups milk then pour over the beef and pickles Cook at 400 for 25 – 30 minutes cover the top with shredded cheese and then cook until cheese is melted

    Blackened Fish Tacos

    I was really excited about this recipe and then as I started pulling out the ingredients I started to get really worried. And by the time I started putting things together I was pretty sure that Ethan and Emerson weren’t going to like it and that Craig would eat it only because he was hungry. I was so wrong. Even after screwing up the coleslaw and then sort of redeeming it everyone liked it. What you need For slaw 2 tbsps cilantro (recipe called for fresh, I’m not that fancy I got the stuff out of my cabinet) 1 tablespoon lime juice 1/2 teaspoon N’Orleans Cajun Seasoning 1 tablespoon canola…

    Zebra Nipples

    Fun to say, quick to make, and yummy to eat – a great blend of crunchy, salty, and sweet. What you need- cookie sheet, wax paper, pretzels, hugs, and m&ms About the pretzels, you’re supposed to get something called waffle pretzels??? I had never heard of them and didn’t see them so I got the normal little ones. They were obviously a little bigger then the waffle ones so I put 2 Hugs on each pretzel. My cookie sheet held 35 pretzels so it took almost a whole bag of hugs to cover them all. Preheat oven to 200 and put them in there for 5 – 10 minutes. The…

    Snicker Cupcakes with Chocolate Mousse Filling

    I got the recipe for this cupcake from Kevin and Amanda. It was delicious. We had it for our family Christmas dinner out at Cheryl’s house. For some reason, the cupcakes all fell in the middle but I fixed it by adding extra mousse to them to puff them back up. Also, when making the icing I had to add milk, not sure how much but prior to adding the milk it was a chocolate rock. If you click on the link you can make these cupcakes too!!

    Marshmallow centerpiece

    I got the idea for this from a blog I saw on Craft Crave. I think it turned out really cute but it was such a pain in the butt to make. It was supposed to be marshmallows dipped in white chocolate but it didn’t work out according to plan so there was a lot of improvising. The orange ones are white chocolate and so are some of the purple, the rest of the purple and the green ones were made out of icing. I used a plastic cauldron that I have had forever and used to use to pass out candy on Halloween. I put a couple of, 3…

    Frosted Chocolate Malt Cupcakes

    This recipe found it’s way into my inbox a couple of weeks before Ethan’s birthday and I knew I had to make them. These were seriously some of the best cupcakes I have ever had.

What you need For the cupcakes 1 1/2 cups bisquick 3/4 cups sugar 1/3 baking cocoa 1/4 cup chocolate flavored malted milk powder 2/3 cup milk 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 eggs For the frosting 2 tbsp chocolate flavor malt powder Frosting 2 tbsps chocolate malted milk 2 tbsp milk…

    Barbecue Pulled Pork

    What you need 1lb pork tenderloin pepper crushed red pepper flakes canola oil (or whatever) 3 garlic cloves (the original recipe called for 2, it also asked for an onion but we didn’t have one) 1/2 cup barbecue sauce 1/4 cup ketchup 1 tsp vinegar Sear tenderloin on all sides. Then season with pepper and red pepper flakes The next step called for the tenderloin to be wrapped in foil and then cooked in the oven for 25 minutes and 325 degrees.
