NY Cheesecake

I always thought cheesecake was like the hardest thing to make. Like. Ever.  Why did I think this?
Or maybe it is because Smitten Kitchen makes everything so easy, even I can do it!

Raspberry Buttermilk Cake

Thanks again Smitten Kitchen. I do believe this IS my go-to cake from now on. For like, um, everyday?!

Cajun Chicken & Pasta

Who doesn't love a good bowl full of carbs?  Even better when the recipe comes from Pioneer Woman. Her recipes are always decadent and delicious. This is no exception.  Next time I make it, I won't fudge the ingredients as much. But even  doing that it was an awesome dinner and lunch the next day!

Apple Crumb Cake

Sometimes you gotta cheat a little. Thanks to a certain box of yellow butter cake mix, a green apple and my crumb topping.

Baked Potato Fry-Chips

Potato Chips or French Fries? How about Both?

Hurricane Snack Mix

Rosemary Focaccia

I found a hand full of recipes that I combined and can't quite credit anyone but at the same time I didn't create it from scratch in my head.  So thank you to the baking blogO'sphere for giving me a base to work from!

Taco Night

Salsa, guacamole, cheese, lettuce, green pepper, flour tortillas, rice, seasoned ground beef and a dollop of sour cream. That's how I like it. DEEEElicious! Pictures soon up!

Bagel Chips

So many things to be thankful for in the North East. Real Bagels is #1. Any which way you get them, they are delicious. *Unless of course you got them in the freezer isle. Boo on you. But not everyone lives tri-state NYC.

E.L.Fudge: The Cookie Test

The Keebler Elves have always done cookies right.  I could always count on them.  Until last week.

Cocoa Raspberry Muffins

So I'm not sure if these should be a breakfast, snack or dessert. Wow. Baking these will be the highlight of, I don't know, maybe forever.

E.L.Fudge; Coming soon.

So I have been working on this E.L.Fudge Cookie project.  I am still trying to create one more recipe for the big comparison. Here is an excerpt from the blog-in-progress:
     I picked up some cookies on sale, just in case I wasn't able to get any baking in the next two weeks or so.  I unpacked my groceries from the store and went about my life until I took the package out one day to have a cookie. I read this line on the package and was taken aback.  Has it been that long since I've eaten an Elven cookie, have the Elves let me down and changed their product? All these questions ran through my mind.  I decided to eat one.  They taste exactly as I remember.  What is WITH this label?
TBHQ. What is this all about. Has it been there all along? All of my childhood favorites were laden with crazy things that are unhealthy. MSG, Red dye #40, BHT, TBHQ....

I must do something about this.

Ok Smitten Kitchen, I'm starting to think that I don't need to search the WWW for recipes ever again, only your Blog. Thank you AGAIN!
