Gooey Surprise Deep Double Chocolate Muffins – Contest Finalist 2

I’ve been waiting to make this finalist. Such a simple idea and who doesn’t like GOOEY CHOCOLATE?!?

Well after dinner the toddler and I hit the kitchen. We had a blast making them (he was able to help a lot) and the results were tasty! The addition of just 3 little chips and marshmallows really did make this delisciously gooey center! Read the rest of this post »»

Raspberry Chocolate Waffle Cups Contest Finalist 1

I was SO excited to make my first VitaMix Contest Finalist this morning! Being forced to make a chocolate entry as I only had one package of Deep Chocolate VitaMix (Chocolate Muffin Mix) (I’m waiting for my shipment to come in so I can make the rest),

So I chose Mary’s Chocolate Waffle cups. I thought they would make a fun Sunday breakfast treat for the toddler and I and they did. We had a blast!

VitaMuffinMix Contest Winners!

Oh My GOSH! I did it, I finally did it. It took days reviewing, reading and drooling over the 60+ entries. Every idea was just genius! Really, just genius! I didn’t think it was going to be as hard as it was. I really didn’t.

I will be emailing … Read the rest of this post »»

Cuttin’ Fresh Pineapple – Video Post

Just a quick video this week, the toddler isn’t feeling too well and I wanted to get some fresh fruit in him. Although basic, this video is for all those scared to by a fresh pineapple. There is really nothing to it.

turkeyOverSquash1

Mini Turkey Balls & Broccoli over Spaghetti Squash

When the husband is away, I get to play!

I LOVE when it’s just the toddler and I for dinner. I get to experiment freely without trying to please someone who has completely different taste then I do.

Anyway, I had this idea of mini turkey meatballs. I thought they would be fun for me to make and easy for the toddler to eat. Originally, I was going to do a sweet and sour but I didn’t have enough ingredients so I went with what I had in the pantry.

TortillaLessSoup

Tortilla-Less Tortilla Soup – Video Post

Alright, I don’t know WHAT I was thinking. All I can say is my illness must have caused a momentary lapse of sanity resulting in me thinking I could actually cook an entire dish on video with a distracting toddler roaming around.

Just be prepared for Diego sunglasses, tent talk, the Tabasco incident, piano playing and me messing up as usual. At one point, I try to show you the dish off camera. I’m a mess! But hey, even the stomach flu doesn’t keep me away from the weekly video! ;~P They are too much fun! That being said, if you aren’t prepared to see me fumble for 20 minutes, the recipe is Read the rest of this post »»

Mexican Pie

I’m patting myself on the back for this one. It is one of my absolute favorite creations and today I actually had other taste testers besides the husband. Taste testers who are open and willing to try new things and they LOVED it! Man I love cooking for people who actually like to eat.

PolentaPizza

Polenta Pizza – Video Post

Christy gave me this idea after she watched my Zucchini Pizza Bites Video. I have to admit, I’m new to polenta. I actually bought it for the first time to try this idea a few weeks ago.

Tonight, after work and then grocery shopping the toddler and I hit the kitchen. He was very willing to help and made his very own Polenta Pizzas (see below). :~)

onionTurkeyLoaf1

Simple Onion Turkey Loaf

Sometimes, I just don’t want to think or measure or worry about dinner. On those days, I use things like pre-made soups, spices mixes or even precut veggies from the grocery store. Tonight it was a package of dry onion soup mix and a can of French onion soup that saved the day. Keeping things like this in the pantry make it easier on the nights I don’t want to worry about dinner.

Who am I kidding? I always worry about dinner! ;~P
