the house smelled absolutely amazing. I would definitely make the recipe again. Everyone that tried it said it was really good and I have to agree with them completely. Side the sandwich with some chip (I chose Cool Ranch Doritos) and you have yourself a nice and easy dinner for a week night. Thumbs up!
man oh man, I think these are the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made. And that's saying something because I make cookies all the time - just ask everyone that knows me. Definitely will use this recipe again. There's always a time when Chocolate Chip Cookies are necessary! Thumbs up!
I didn't chill it for a very long time before trying it, but it was still pretty good. It was very sweet, so I couldn't eat too much of it in one sitting. The marshmallows were great and I sprinkled pecan bits on top (yummy!). I probably wouldn't make this again, but I'm glad I did this time around. Thumbs up.

First of all, this Hummus was pretty easy to make. Saute some onions and then puree everything in a food processor. It smelled really good when it was done, however I wouldn't say I wanted to "Lick the Bowl Clean." Because the recipe called for sweet onions, that is what I bought at the grocery store. I would say that this was a big mistake. The hummus was way to sweet for my liking. I even tried to buy my favorite pita chips to eat it with - Parmesan Garlic - but it still wasn't able to mask the taste. Needless to say this whole batch it going to end
Thumbs way, way down.
West - Appetizer - Dip
Since New Years Eve was this past weekend, I decided that it would be a fantastic idea to pick a beverage from the cookbook to make, and hopefully enjoy. That brought me to the Beer Margaritas. Loving margaritas, I felt like this would be the perfect drink to ring in the new year, and it was! The one thing that caught me off guard was there is no tequila in this recipe. It's just lime juice, vodka, water, and beer. It was super easy to make. One can of lime juice concentrate made about 2L of the drink (2 pitchers, I'm pretty sure my pitcher is 1L but I

Chili con Queso
If you readers know me personally, you know that Queso is my favorite food. If you readers don't know me personally, this just in: QUESO IS MY FAVORITE FOOD EVER. Because I don't like Buffalo Wings, this is what I chose for myself to eat during the Winter Classic. It was both delicious and super easy to make. Instead of in the microwave, I ended up just making it in a small crockpot: I felt like it would be more consistently melted and less burned this way (I am not a pro at heating things up in the microwave). This recipe is a little different than I
Thumbs way, way up.

Grandma's Tandy Kake
Pretty sure I didn't cook this long enough. The recipe says "until edges are golden" so that's what I did, but I felt like the middle was a little too battery than it should be. However, I don't know if this type of cake is suppose to be different than other types of cake? Either way, it was still delicious especially when served cold. I had the most fun melting the chocolate - this was the first time I've ever melt chocolate that actually worked! I created my owned double boiler by using two pots (thank you Pinterest for this suggestion) and it worked out wonderfully! I

This turned out awesomely. I put an entire bag of mozzarella cheese, green pepper, ground beef, and onions on this pizza. The crust was perfectly baked - crunchy but still a little soft on top. One thing I'll say, I'm not good at "framing" the pizza, it kind of looked like a bowtie, but who cares what it looks like if it tastes so delcious?!
Thumbs up for sure on this recipe.
Chesapeake Crab Dip
This dip has cream cheese in it *insert sad face emoji* but it was fairly easy to make. The recipe says to bake it in the oven, but I decided to just make it in a crock-pot since I was stuck at home due to the icy conditions and thought it would be great to just walk over, have a cracker with dip on it, and go on with whatever else I was doing. My little crock pot was the perfect size for all the ingredients needed. I added some extra cheddar cheese because why not?!
Thumbs up for easiness.
