Tortilla soup from barefootandbaking.blogspot.com
I have pinned so many tortilla soup recipes on Pinterest and finally tried one tonight. The only thing I did different was I cut the recipe in half (it still made a ton!) and I used black beans instead of pinto, because that is what I had on hand. It was really good. Really filling actually. If you like a good tortilla soup, you will like this one.
The second is Crispy Cheddar Chicken from jamiecooksitup.blogspot.com .
It is really good and really easy. Be careful not to overcook the chicken though so it doesn't dry out. It reminds me of the classic poppyseed chicken recipe that is a staple in our house and has most of the same ingredients which I love, because I always have them on hand, yet it is a new twist to it.
Then there was the Amish Bread...
OMG. Delish. I was out of bread and had zero desire to go to the store to buy some. So I broke out my little used breadmaker and made this. It's from allrecipes.com. I think I made it four times in one week, because we would finish a whole loaf in one day when I would make it. It is really that good. Probably not healthy for you, but really good.
I actually made these yesterday for my husband to take to work. I was about a quarter of a cup short of the shortening, and I should have adjusted the flour accordingly. They turned out more like a shortbread. A really good shortbread. I will definitely try them again. the recipe is from orangeandbiscuits.blogspot.com.
I also made these chocolate peanut butter brownies yesterday...
They are cheap, easy and really good. I didn't have peanut butter chips on hand, so I just omitted them. The recipe is from bakedperfection.com.
For my husband's coworkers for Christmas I made a foursome of cupcakes. Their favorite was these Oreo cupcakes from keepingupwiththekunzs.blogspot.com.
I totally cheated on this one, however. I used a white cake mix instead of making the cupcake from scratch. It turned out really good and the frosting is amazing too.
The second cupcake I made was a chocolate peppermint cupcake which of course I can't find the recipe too now, and the third and fourth were the pumpkin cake recipe and lemon cake recipe that I previously posted.
The last thing I can remember making in the last few months was this asian garlic scallion noodles.
Yum and yum. It's from weekofmenus.blogspot.com. I added chicken to it, to make it more of a meal. I have plans to cook more! Hopefully I'll be posting more soon!
