Recipe Round Up: Found, Tested, Loved

One of the big reasons I started this blog was to share recipes I’ve created with my friends, family, and anyone else who wants to listen! Another equally important reason for creating this blog was to share the recipes I’ve found, tested, and loved!

Food is meant to be shared. Anyone that loves food and loves cooking knows that one of the most gratifying things about the passion is sharing it.

Here are some recipes I’ve found, tried out, and absolutely loved!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole from Six Sisters’ Stuff

This recipe was a big hit my the husband and my Dad! It uses very few ingredients, but the unique take on an old classic creates a real wow factor for whomever you’re feeding. I used Stove Top Cornbread Stuffing (MY FAVORITE), 96% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup and Reduced Fat Cheese and it came out wonderfully. A great recipe to feed and impress a crowd!

White Pizza Dip from How Sweet It Is

This dip was so freaking good I wasn’t able to take a picture of it before it was devoured. However, Jessica, the creator the for the recipe has some absolutely beautiful, mouth watering pictures over at her blog. Check them out. Make the dip. You will not regret it. I served it with whole grain crackers, but honestly would have been fine with just a spoon.

French Dip Cupcakes from Emily Bites

These were a lot easer to make than I anticipated. I could not find freaking Won Ton wrappers in the grocery store to save my life, so I used puff pastry cut into 4 inch squars instead and it worked fine. I ended up making them more into purses than cupcakes, but whatevs. I used the Oscar Mayer Carving Board Roast Beef and also a little bit of sliced deli turkey because I didn’t think I had enough meat. Store bought au jus gravy and Laughing Cow Cheesemake this recipe a sinch. I’m pretty sure if I would have let him, my husband would have eaten ALL of these within 10 minutes of them coming out of the oven. Again, this is another take on a classic recipe that will make your guests super happy.

Pancake Bites from The World According to Egg Face

These were awesome. I used my Trader Joe’s Multigrain Pancake/Waffle mix I got on our NC trip (yes I still have it!) and the following toppings: Bacon, Blueberries & Chocolate Chips. I made these Friday night the weekend my parents came to help us paint. That way, Saturday morning everyone could wake up at their own time, pop a couple of these in the microwave and voila – breakfast! They were so good, so easy, and an absolute crowd pleaser. They would also be perfect to make on a Sunday night for breakfast for the work week!

2 Ingredient Pumpkin Brownies from Cookies and Cups

You read that right – TWO INGREDIENTS! And one of them is pumpkin! How cool? Okay so I must admit when I made these I added another ingredient (chocolate chips) but I mean, you don’t HAVE to! Anyway, 3 ingredients is still pretty darn good for brownies! These brownies are so moist, so rich, and so yummy. The recipe calls for a 19.5oz box of brownie mix, but I used an 18oz box and just left about a tablespoon of pumpkin in the can. I also added about 1/2 cup of milk chocolate chips. These are so yummy, especially the next day!
