Sesame Chicken

 I found this recipe on Budget Bites-one of the best blogs I have found in a while!  This chicken was a hit.  And we only had black sesame seeds, those aren't bugs, never fear!  Next time i'll double the sauce so there is more for my rice!

S'mores Bars

I made these for a family dinner.  They sure did taste like S'mores!  Gooey, Chocolatey, Marshmallowy, and Graham crackery!  We ate them all up!

Roasted Broccoli

 I have never had Broccoli that tasted better than this right here.  And it is super easy too.  This is our go to Broccoli now.  Some parts are slightly crispy, and some are garlicky, seriously, this is the best Broccoli you'll try.  We also use the same recipe with Cauliflower.  Yup, I'm jumping on the bandwagon!

Narley Butterfinger Chunk Cookies

 Butterfingers are my friend...unless my pants are getting tight, then I steer clear ;).  I found this recipe over on Sally's Baking Addiction.  Sally, you are naughty.  These cookies were divine!  I had one when they first came out of the oven, and yum.  Then I let them cool, so the Butterfingers would firm back up, and even more yum!  I had to stick them in the freezer so I wouldn't eat them all in one sitting!

Meatloaf Muffins

Have you ever made Meatloaf before?  My recipe takes over an hour to make.  And if you are anything like me, the day often runs away on me, and I find that I sometimes haven't left myself with enough time to make a long baking dinner.  So one day I decided to make meatloaf muffins (though I am sure the idea is not mine ;) ) Feel free to use any recipe, I have listed mine.  We don't like the tomato sauce on our Meatloaf because we dip it in Ketchup (I also sometimes sneak a grated Zucchini or 2 into our Meatloaf, and no one can tell!).

Broccoli Cheddar Cheese Mashed Potatoes

We call these potatoes "Hulk Potatoes" because my 3 year old son does NOT like Broccoli, but he loves "Hulk Potatoes"!  These are nice break from the white mashed potato monotony. The broccoli gives it a nice subtle flavor, and the cheese makes it, well, cheesy!
