Strawberry Cheesecake Egg Rolls

Strawberry Cheesecake Egg Rolls I know, strange sounding right?  I wasn’t sure if these would work since normally you eat this Strawberry Cheesecake filling cold.  But, it worked.  A little messy when taking a bite, some of it squeezed out on my hand, but I didn’t have a problem licking it off if you know what I mean. I’m guessing if you’re here checking this awesome recipe out, then you

Bananas Foster Upside Down Bundt Cake by

Bananas Foster Upside Down Bundt Cake I’ve been dying to make something with Bananas Foster.  This is what I came up with. A Bananas Foster Upside Down Bundt Cake.  Instead of making a cake and THEN pouring the Bananas Foster on top of it, I cooked it all together.  I did cheat, like usual, and I used a store bought cake mix that I added my secret ingredient in.  I

Brownie Cookies by

Brownie Cookies  This is a simple and quick way to change up how you use your Brownie Mix. With a couple changes to the ingredients, you can turn your brownies into cookies. Thus, Brownie Cookies. Only took me about 5 minutes to prepare, then bake the cookies however you want. Big, small or in between. I ended up with 36 – 3 batches of 12. To me, cookies go further

Skillet Smores Brownies by

Skillet Smores Brownies I’ve seen S’mores Brownies made, but so far, not in a skillet.  That doesn’t mean they’re not out there. I just haven’t seen them.  S’mores Brownies are made like S’mores are.  Graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallows.  Only with these I basically swapped the chocolate for chocolate brownies. I made a graham cracker crust.  Then I used a brownie box mix next. Poured it over the graham cracker

EASY Fried Apple Dumplings by

EASY Fried Apple Dumplings Do you like apple pie?  Or even the ones you can buy at the grocery store or gas stations?  Those little fried apple pies?  You’re in luck then.  These taste a WHOLE lot like those.  They’re like mini fried apple pies.  And would go great with some vanilla ice cream. I got smart.  This time while I’m writing up my recipe and telling you all about

Pulled Pork Egg Rolls by

Pulled Pork Egg Rolls Here I go again with some egg rolls.  But, to my defense, this one wasn’t my idea.  I think I may have created another monster with egg rolls.  A good friend of mine, ahem…Julie…came up with this one.  We had some leftover pulled pork from a party and when I said I wonder what I can make with it, she blurted out “Egg Rolls!” quicker than

Tuna Patties in less than 15 minutes

Tuna Patties My hubs use to make Salmon patties and we all loved them.  I, personally don’t like removing the bones in the canned salmon, do you?  But I wanted some.  So, I used tuna instead.  They were great!  In fact, we were fighting over the last one.  Turns out that 2 isn’t enough for us. 🙂  In addition to using tuna instead, I also used pank. But you could

Homemade Beef and Cheese Taquitos by

Homemade Beef and Cheese Taquitos AKA Flauta. Sarah and I are huge taquito eaters.  The ones that you buy in the frozen food section.  So, we decided to make our own taquitos and although I need a little more practice rolling them smaller, they tasted great.  Better than the frozen kind, of course. We made some cheese dip to go with these, but you could skip that if you like. 

Caramel Apple Cupcakes by

Caramel Apple Cupcakes   You will NOT believe how these turned out.  It was one of my crazy creations and sometimes they turn out Ah-mazing!  I even had one friend tell me that it tasted like it came from a bakery.  That’s right.  Go me! How did this come about you ask?  Well, I was standing on the cake aisle in the grocery store just looking hoping something would come

Pecan Sandies by

Pecan Sandies A good friend of the family’s Mom had knee surgery and my daughter wanted to make something for her. Pay back for a cake she had made my daughter.  So, she found out that pecan sandies are her favorite cookie.  She asked if I would help her make them.  And here we are.  Might as well post up a recipe for them. These turned out great.  Melt in

Pumpkin Pie Bread #pumpkin #pumpkinpie #pumpkinbread

Pumpkin Pie Bread Let me see a show of hands….who loves pumpkin bread?  I do!!  I made this bread with a cake mix and my pumpkin pie filling.  Turned out seriously moist.  Just look see… Can you tell?  Well, you may just have to trust me on this one.  Every year, one of my grandsons asks me to make this.  He requests one for the his school Thanksgiving party and

Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookies #peanutbuttercookies #cookies #whitechocolatechips

Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookies Talk about the ultimate…this peanut butter cookie has tons, and I mean tons of white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts (my fav). Macadamia nuts. macadamia nuts. Why do they have to be so expensive? It ended up very sweet.  And mixing the dough with the chips and nuts is a workout. So, you don’t have to feel so guilty when you eat the cookies. As

Chicken Fried Rice #friedrice #chicken #sidedish

Chicken Fried Rice I did it. I finally made some fried rice. Now I can’t wait to make some more.  I love fried rice. When I was a teenager, we were always ordering fried rice from a Chinese take out. My fav then was ham fried rice. Now, I love them all.  Well, I did come across one online the other day that was Ketchup Fried Rice. Even if I

Taco Egg Rolls -

TACO EGG ROLLS Mexican food with Asian concept! I know, I know, haven’t I done enough egg rolls?  Nope!  I haven’t. But, I promise this will be it for awhile. I’m being threatened with being put in Egg Roll Anonymous. 🙂  I swear this one wasn’t my fault.  My daughter, Ms. Taco Lover, suggested, actually begged that I try to make these.  She offered up the taco meat and cheese

Chicken Fried Steak

Chicken Fried Steak This is a classic southern meal.  You can see that I have mashed taters and gravy on that plate too.  I will put up the recipe for those in the next day or two. When I do, I’ll come back and link them up here. Mashed taters and gravy just go with chicken fried steak. Chicken Fried Steak Gravy Chicken fried steak is so much easier to

FRIED APPLE EGG ROLLS Yup, you’re reading that right!  Fried Apple Egg Rolls!  Ever since Adrian over at Life with Garnish did a recipe on Egg Rolls and I realized I could make egg rolls, I’ve been on a tear.  I have made Ground Chicken Egg Rolls, Ranch Chicken Egg Rolls & Bacon Cheeseburger Egg Rolls.  I don’t know if it’s the fact that I’m just so darn tootin happy

Ranch Chicken Egg Rolls If you saw my last recipe, Ground Chicken HOMEMADE Egg Rolls, then you read that I might go, ok, I’m gonna go nuts making egg rolls. This is my second installment..LOL.  I’ll try from here on to at least have a recipe or two between them so we don’t go into egg roll burnout. I’m just so excited to learn I can make them so easily.

Ground Chicken HOMEMADE Egg Rolls I love egg rolls, problem is, hubs doesn’t.  I don’t get to eat at Chinese Food Restaurants unless my Mom is in town. 🙁  So, when I ran across Adrian’s Homemade Egg Rolls at Life with Garnish, I got pretty excited.  I know, it’s sad when I get excited over food, but that’s how I roll nowadays.  I didn’t want to make a huge batch
