Strawberry Shortcake, or Not

I think I first saw this idea on Pinterest.  Cake mix in the waffle iron.  Genius!  And so many possibilities.  I decided to make strawberry shortcake, with yellow cake, strawberry pie filling,  and Cool Whip.  Simply make the cake mix as directed on the package and cook in the waffle iron.  I didn’t pay attention to …

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

I’m always looking for new ways to fix chicken.  But my kids are kind of picky, and my husband doesn’t always like something different, so it’s hard.  A few days ago, I found a recipe for crock pot Italian chicken.  But I didn’t have everything I needed on hand to make that particular recipe, so I …

Molten Chocolate Lava Cookies – January Recipe #2

Molten Chocolate Lava Cookies. Or, the chocolate cookie that was so good my husband almost ate them all. Or, the really bad idea the first week of New Year’s Resolutions cookie.  Or…well, you get the picture.  Actually, you can’t have a picture because they vanished so quickly. I intended to make chocolate chip cookies, but …

Mmmm, Pizza

Even though I want to cook more, tonight’s dinner was one of my Christmas presents. My husband ordered some deep dish pizza. From Chicago. We took a family trip to Chicago at the end of the summer and Lou Malnati’s deep dish pizza was definitely one of the highlights. It was sooooo good. Their sauce …

Batter Up!

Batter Up! is the name of my imaginary future bakery. I even have a logo for it; if I can figure out how to post it, I will, as soon as I get it out of my head and on paper. When I was trying to think of a name (you think about things like …
