This recipe does have a bit of a kick to it, so be warned. If you don't like it quite as spicy then just tone down some of the spices a bit.

Our Best Bites website (this one is not in the book). Anywho, these are super duper yummy grilled up, although I didn't have the liquid smoke they still were VERY VERY good. In fact we have had them 2 times this week :)

Sam would tell me about these muffins his mom would make ALL the time so I finally got around to getting the recipe from her a few years ago and....YUM! We have these all the time now and you know what...I don't get sick of them at all!
Since I don't have a Kitchenaid (YET) or a Bosch (YET) I don't really enjoy making homemade dough for anything. But I figured since I was venturing out this Sunday and making homemade lasagna (which I might add was pretty good as well) that I would top off the experience with some breadsticks.
~ The Lasagna recipe came from Our Best Bites. Their recipes are so yummy and usually not to complicated to make!
I got this recipe from my sister, but later reazlied that my sister-in-law had actually emailed out this same recipe a year or so ago. So thanks to both of u!

Our Best Bites" addict like myself, then you should because this recipe came from their cookbook. I know grilling season is almost over, so you better hurry and try this one before you forget about it!

The thing that makes this meatloaf a little different then normal ones, is the sauce that goes on the top. Most people just put ketchup on top, but this sauce adds a little more zip. Enjoy!

I remember when I was a kid, every time I would go to the mall I would want to stop in the food court to get one of these. I also remember the day they took it out of the food court and filled in the area with another clothes store...it was a sad day for many.
Can you really have to many casserole recipes? I don't think so. This one includes most things that people will have at home. Yes I know my picture is very unappetizing to look at but really its an all in one casserole. It has the Italian spices of a spaghetti sauce and the bread right on with it.
In my opinion you can never have to many steak marinades. This is usually my go to marinade though. The vinegar helps to break down the steak making it more tender.

I can't believe that in my many rantings and ravings about me missing and loving my precious El Pollo Loco that I forgot to post the very very delicious recipe I found online for their creamy cilantro dressing. I'll tell you what...I could order their little itty bitty Loco Salads every single day (I feel like I'm repeating myself from a previous post?)and never EVER get tired of it. Anyway, this recipe isn't EXACT, its just one of those copycat recipes but its pretty close.
If anybody does happen to have the EXACT recipe they use and want to share it with me....I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER!
These potatoes are famous in the LDS world. It seems like you can't go to a Christmas party, funeral, enrichment, nothing without seeing these wonderful bits of goodness on the table.

So Ive always wanted to do an April Fools Day gag that involved disguising all the foods and making them look like something else. I first saw some ideas and ripped them out of a magazine article and then I thought hmmm I should search around a find a few more and share them with all of you guys. (yes all 2 of you that read my blog faithfully lol). Anyway, enjoy and have fun. Maybe one of these years I will get around to actually making some of these. They are pretty darn cute if I say so!
Avacado Salsa. Mmm just thinking about it is making me want to drive a few hours to go pick up one of those Loco Salads. You know what, I think I could eat a Loco Salad, some Taco Al Carbones, the Avacado Salsa, and their Churros...every day and never EVER get sick of it. Im really hoping to get me some of this yummy deliciousness while we are in California in a few weeks. Until then I had to make due and put together something similar. So the chicken, sad to say, is not flame grilled (mmm my mouth is starting to drool), but its still good. A brother in law of mine gave me a couple of ideas on how to cook the chicken to get in some awesome flavor.

Our Best Bites" and came across these really yummy looking rolls. They turned out amazing! (That last link for the rolls has step by step pictures of what you are doing!)
They have a cheesy filling that melts in your mouth as soon as you bite into them! Or have fun unrolling them and have cheesy deliciousness in every bite!

~Update~ I DO always use this as my go to crust now. Why you may ask...because it doesn't have to wait to rise for very long. Its a lot faster then most other recipes I have found. It isn't your typical bready crust. It is a lot more dense and crunchy, but I love it.

They are so versatile to. You can fill them with chicken salad, tuna salad, egg salad, OR turn them into a dessert like I like to do and fill it with different flavors of pudding.

(I guess I should have cut my burger open so you could see how yummy it looked with the mushrooms all stuffed in there, but you can use your imagination!!)

A fantastic dish, that's what this is. It's jam packed with vegetables and guess what, you don't even miss the fact that there is no meat in it. I usually serve this up as a main dish. Its plenty filling and tastes absolutely fantastic!

I kept going back and forth about whether to post this or not because some of you may not find this quite as cute and funny as I do. But I decided that I just had to. Here are some really cute (and I think hilarious) ways of decorating some heart shaped sugar cookies for valentines day. There are G rated ones, PG rated ones, and PG 13 rated ones. Now, mind you, I don't think I would decorate the PG or PG13 ones when children are around but I think you sweetie pie will find them pretty darn funny and perfect for Valentines day.
The frosting recipe is fantastic and has one ingredient that I had never thought to add to a frosting. Corn syrup! I know what your thinking, oh yum...uhhh corn syrup. But really I don't know what it does to that frosting but it is fantastic. Not to mention that the brownies are moist and delish.
I make these at least once a month and never get tired of them. In fact, I crave them almost constantly and so does my family.
As of late I have been adding a nice giant raspberry on top of each piece for decoration but I also love the flavor with it.

So I was just on one of my favorite blogs, Be Different...Act Normal and came across this really fun idea. I am totally going to bring these for our Super Bowl Party this year. Who says you have to have eat fattening, greasy, unhealthy food. Not me. So this year I am putting aside the buffalo wings and pizza, and going to bring sushi and chocolate dipped strawberries. Yeah they probably won't taste that good together, but I don't really care. How can you pass up these cute little things?! Oh man, I am so excited to make these.
Yesterday after I put away all of the items from my Bountiful Basket, I realized that I had 18 bananas sitting in my kitchen. No they didn't all come in the basket, but the day before I had gone to Costco and bought some. Yeah smart move I know, but I hope Im not the only one who goes into a store at times and just starts aimlessly wandering around throwing things in the cart.
ANYWAY, so this morning I decided that I need to think of something I could do with some of these bananas. I didn't want to make more banana bread (cuz I just made some last week) and I didn't want to make a pie...but I was having a sweet tooth. So I started searching online and came across this recipe at simplerecipes.com.
To be honest I had never, ever, thought of making a banana cookie...a banana cookie...really?! So I thought I would give it a try. They turned out really good.
They look like a cookie, but have the consistency of a banana bread or muffin.
