Cheese stuffed Manicotti

manicotti

Do you watch the Next Iron Chef at all? I think it's awesome that this time it's a Super Star battle. I also think that all these chefs could be the Next Iron Chef and they need to have an Iron Chef America 2. That way, everybody will be happy and we don't have to see Bobby Flay battle it out all the time. It makes me wonder if he's retiring from being an Iron Chef or which of the Iron Chef's is retiring next? Morimoto possibly? We finally get to see all those judges on Chopped cook for once, … [Read more...]

Spiderweb Cupcakes

decorations 023

Have I mentioned how much I love Halloween before? It's my favorite Holiday. I love it so much, I made my own grim reaper, that I found on pinterest. I made my own tombstones out of Styrofoam and used wooden dowels to keep them in the ground. I took some old jeans that were no longer being worn, stuffed them with plastic bags and put a shoe on it.That's fake blood, I found at the Halloween store. We love to carve pumpkins the night before. Ben likes the easy face … [Read more...]

Pumpkin-Cinnamon Streusel Buns

pumpkin cinnamon rolls 043

Pumpkin Cinnamon buns are great for breakfast on the weekend. I made the dough the night before and let it rise over night. They only take 20 minutes to bake in the oven, so you can prep the streusal and icing while you're waiting for the oven to heat up. Some of the cinnamon rolls were not all the same size. As most of you know, I suck at math, and they looked pretty funny in the pan after they cooked because the rolls were all not the same size. I was watching them make cinnamon rolls once … [Read more...]

Cherry Cheesecake

mini cheesecakes 038

Every now and then, I'll run across a recipe on the Weight Watcher website that I HAVE  to try. This recipe happened to be Jennifer Hudson approved. ;) You know it's good, if Jennifer Hudson approves of it. It's very rare finding a really good recipe on their daily recipe section. Half the time, I don't even have the ingredients for those recipes to make. I couldn't believe how fast these little cheesecakes were done. It only took 15 minutes in the oven for them to bake. Regular cheesecake … [Read more...]

Skinny Beef Enchiladas

beef enchiladas 002

I think my dogs were trying to tell me something tonight. I had gone to the grocery store and picked up a slice of cake, along with things I needed to get for these enchiladas. It's the best, and the frosting is so good. The cover was on it pretty tightly and while I was cooking these enchiladas they ended up getting into the cake and eating it all. That probably saved me well over 500 calories right there. :) Hopefully, they don't get sick later on. Here is my version of beef enchiladas.  I … [Read more...]

Crock Pot Caramel Apples

caramel apples 047

Crock pot caramel apples. The recipe may seem really easy to make, considering the fact that there's only one ingredient that you have to melt in the crock pot. However, it's kind of hard to dip the apples and make sure the apples get all evenly coated with caramel goodness. Also, the caramel tends to harden quickly so you have to work fast in order to get any toppings on the caramel. It takes about a good hour on high for it all to melt. When I was dipping the apples one of the sticks … [Read more...]

Anybody out there???

I'm starting to become really annoyed with this blog lately, and yet I still continue to post recipes and pictures hoping that someone will respond one day. I continue to submit pictures to foodgawker and get annoyed when they don't approve of a photo. I know that you visit it, because my tracker is showing anywhere from 5o0 to 1500 hits per day. The most amount of time people spend on this site is 50 seconds and no one ever comments.Why is that, is it because I'm boring? Or is it because … [Read more...]

Paula Deen’s Monster Mash

monster mash 016

I said in a previous post that I've been in a Halloween food rut recently. There's just nothing really cool I want to make for Halloween this year. I was watching Paula Deen on her show and her son Jamie was on there for a Halloween episode. That show should be called Paula Deen and Son's, because every other episode, one of her two sons is on there. If it wasn't for Paula, her sons wouldn't be popular... just saying. I don't have anything against that family. I love Paula Deen. She has great … [Read more...]
