them all the time. AND the leftovers. Man they are still as good as the moment I took it out of the oven. To be honest, I had a hard time waiting the entire bake time... it just smelled so good! I definitely recommend this, especially if you have children. I'm sure they would love it just as much as you or I do. This recipe gets a way thumbs up for sure. I'll be making this again in the future.

a blender, I think that would be easiest for next time I make this recipe. Other than that, this Coffee Latte was delicious. I used almond chocolate milk and actually made coffee rather than using the instant coffee the recipe calls for (mainly because I already had normal coffee and I'm trying to not spend a ton of money on this blog). Regardless, I thought it was delicious and I'll definitely be enjoying the results for a few days - this recipes makes so much!! I should have halved it or something but where's the fun in that? I'll give this recipe a thumbs up.

I wanted to share with you all my New Years Eve and Winter Classic Menu!! Go Blues!!
interesting because everyone loves Syberg's sauce. I wonder if it's different when using it at home versus ordering it at the restaurant? Hmm. I bought an electric skillet for this and I'm in love with it. It was so easy to use and so easy to clean up. I may start using this for everything. The temperature was easy to set and consistent throughout the whole cook time. I can't do that with my stove top!! I'll give this recipe a thumbs up.

up in the trash, which is really sad since I spent my hard earned money on this. I guess it was bound to happen eventually... maybe I can try eating it while drinking? Nah I don't think that would work. Anyone have an idea? I may just endure it. I do love these pita chips.
Thumbs way, way down.
West - Appetizer - Dip
could be way wrong on that one!) They were delicious for sure. I used Land Shark as the beer of choice (ya know, to make it more beach like), and opted not to add fresh lime slices or salt on the rim. The one thing I would change for next time, I'd want to strain the lime juice before mixing the ingredients. I hated that once I got to the bottom of the glass it was full of pulp. Gah, pulp! Other than that, this drink was delicious and I would definitely make it again!

would normally make it. Yes, it uses Velveeta, but instead of Rotel, it used green chilies and pimentos as the main ingredient. Sounds really weird, but it was strangely really good. Who would have thought to put some diced pimentos into Queso dip? Not me, but thanks Taste of Home cookbook for helping me realize this geniusness. I would definitely make this again.
Thumbs way, way up.

BBQ Beef Brisket
So this recipe wasn't too difficult to make. It does have quite the list of ingredients, but hey, I made BBQ sauce from scratch and it was actually pretty delicious. One thing I did differently than the recipe is that I baked it in the oven - this is because 1. it's freezing outside and I wasn't about to grill it and 2. I don't know how my electric grill would have worked on this 2lb brisket. So, I baked it at 350 in the oven for 2 hours, and it came out perfect. I even set aside the extra sauce to pour over the top afterwards. I would definitely make this again - I don't think

The recipe itself was designed to make two loaves of corn bread. Because I didn't need that much, and because I only have one bread pan, I halved this recipe. Nonetheless, I did not like making this one. One of the steps says "add flour until firm." Well, being me and not knowing how to make bread, I ended up kneading bread that was super sticky. I really wish they could have put a note in there with some kind of idea of how much was needed. I may have freaked out a little bit with all the dough that was stuck to my fingers. Finally though, there was enough flour
Thumbs Up! (just need to make sure you put enough flour on the dough)

This recipe was super simple, and quite fun when the mashing of the beans occurs. I may not be a pro at mashing beans (or maybe it was my cheapo masher that I bought), but still the end result was pretty good. You can see in the picture above they aren't completely smashed. The spices and onions used made it taste great and went well with the corn bread and the brisket.
