I know I know! Two recipes in a row?!?! Honestly I should have posted my awesome review on the Clara’s Tea event we just attended since we had the best time EVER, but I have scatter brain today! I literally cannot focus on anything for more than 5 seconds! I think all of this holiday madness and realizing Christmas is less than a week away is getting to me. So much to do!!! So little time!!! So my brain says procrastinate and do nothing! Ughhhh.... lol.
I couldn’t let y’all go without some bomb content, so I hit up my drafts folder and found this delicious gem. A family favorite that’s for sure! My daughter and hubby are taco haters. Crazy, I know! But it is what it is. They do however love all things pizza including Stromboli’s, so I started chef’ing up the most pizza-ish thing I can turn a taco into, my now famous Taco Rollup!!! Perfect for taco Tuesday!!! Game days!!!! Pot lucks, you name it!!!! Enjoy!
• 1lb Browned Taco Seasoned Ground Beef
• Cheddar Cheese String Cheese
• Pizza Dough
• Sour Cream
Roll out the pizza dough onto a nonstick baking pan. Cut the pizza dough into four squared sections. Place a piece of cheese in the center of each square.
Sprinkle with browned, taco seasoned ground beef.
Roll up the taco rollups and cook in a 300 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
Dunk in sour cream & salsa & enjoy!
Omg a little over a week and Santa comes to visit!!!! I finally finished up my daughters shopping yesterday. I’m pretty good at shopping super early. Like before Thanksgiving early!!But I always seem to be grabbing last minute gifts for my daughter since her Christmas lists are always changing! This year she wanted a hot tub! Pretty sure that was out of Santa’s budget, so we waited and waited AND WAITED for her to finally suggest a few other things. It finally happened so I mailed off that lists to amazon and Santa will do his drop off Thursday ;-)
Now that shopping is out of the way, that means I can hit the kitchen the rest of the week!! I need all the cookies and yesterday’s creation was Peppermint Chocolate Cookies using the holiday peppermint M&M’s!!! Enjoy!
• 15oz Box Chocolate Cake Mix
• 2 Eggs
• 1/2 Cup Melted Butter
• 1/2 Chocolate Chips
• Peppermint M&M’s
Pour cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Pour in chocolate chips. Crack two eggs. Pour in butter. Mix well.
Scoop the dough into tablespoon sized circles onto a non-stick baking sheet or lay out a piece of parchment paper and place on top of that.
Take several M&M’s and place them on top of the cookie dough. Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned at 350 degrees.
Serve & enjoy!!!
One of the best parts about Christmas?!!! COOKIES!!!! I’ve never really been someone to bake Christmas cookies because up until the last few years, we always had family members who baked away! We would end up with so many cookies that it was pointless for me to hit the kitchen!
Unfortunately all of the Cookie gurus we personally know, baking is no more. So hubby and I have taken upon ourselves to be the Cookie extraordinaries! One of our favorite cookies? Cake mix cookies!!! So easy to make and they literally taste like cutouts!!!! Enjoy!!!
• 15oz Box Yellow Cake Mix
• 2 Eggs
• 1/2 Cup Melted Butter
• 1TSP Vanilla
Pour cake mix into a large mixing bowl. Pour in Vanilla and melted butter. Crack two eggs. Mix well.
Roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls. Roll the balls of dough around in the sprinkles to coat.
Place on non-stick baking sheet or lay out a piece of parchment paper and place on top of that. Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies are set and lightly browned at 350 degrees.
Serve & enjoy!!!
Cinnamon Roll Casserole!! One of those dishes that both my own family and my husband’s have made forever! If I’m being 100% real here, I would dread it! I am obsessed with all things cinnamon roll, but both sides of the family would serve this soggy mess on a plate. I couldn’t figure out how the most delicious thing ever was always soup.
I finally took it upon my self last year to make my own version of the classic recipe everyone in the word seems to make and jackpot! No soupy mess and it still tastes like French toast cinnamon rolls!!!! Enjoy!!!
• 2 cans Cinnamon rolls
• 1/2 cup butter, melted
• 1/3 cup sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
• 2 tsp cinnamon
• 2 tsp vanilla extract
• Icing from cinnamon roll packages
Mix well. In a mixing bowl, pour in melted butter & cream. Crack two eggs. Add vanilla & cinnamon. Mix well.
Cut each cinnamon roll into 4’s and place the pieces into the crockpot.
Pour egg mixture over the cinnamon roll pieces. Place lid back onto the crockpot and cook on low for 2 1/2-3 hours.
Remove lid and drizzle with frosting.
Serve & Enjoy!
O my yum!!!! One of my favorites. Brussel Sprouts!!! My hubby was convinced for years that he hated them! He wouldn’t even give them a chance regardless of how many times I told him it’s all how you make them & I have to admit I make some yummy ones!
He finally gave in a few weeks back and tried one of my favorite ways to chef them up, sheetpan style with asparagus! He likes asparagus, so we figured if he really did hate Brussel Sprouts he could at least have the asparagus to eat.
Safe to say I was 100% correct! If you make Brussel Sprouts correctly, they are beyond delicious! He enjoyed them so much that I made them again a few days later and this time snapped a few pictures for y’all!!
