Catch Up :)

Sunday, September 4, 2011

So...basically I have been very bad at keeping up with my blog so far. I just started a full-time job and things are a little busy, but I'll figure it out! I want to catch you up on what I have been doing for the past few weeks...except I want to do it by showing you my delightful food we go:

First up: Oreo Cream Cheese Cupcakes

These received 4.5 out of 5...very delicious :)

Next, my husband and I tried our hand at Tofu....let's just say it was an experience. 

It comes in a goopy flavorless square, so it's key to season it well.

Next, we made Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Bran Muffins.

Very healthy...too healthy for me but my husband loves them! 

So later, I had a chocolate craving....and I made Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies.

They are actually semi-healthy and really delicious. 
They taste like those chocolate peanut butter no-bake cookies!

Next up is an invention of my very own: Chicken Nachos :)

Super delicious if I do say so myself. 

Last but not least, I made Twice Baked Potatoes 
and Artichoke Dip with bread pieces 
for the lovely ladies of Evangel Home.

This meal was a big hit with the ladies :)

So...that's mainly what I've been up to, trying to figure out some good recipes to keep my husband's stomach happy! So far so good. Check out the recipes tab for the sites where I found these recipes and also for the little twists that I added to them. 



Here are all my little touches:

Oreo Cupcakes:

-I didn't use the sour cream or salt....I don't like sour cream at all!!


-I put this tofu in a salad, pretty good but we definitely needed more flavor.

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Raisin Muffins:

-We didn't put in the nuts in this recipe, but we should have. You definitely need lots of berries & nuts or it tastes bland.

Nutella Peanut Butter Cookies: 

This recipe was actually just for nutella, but we spilt the 1 cup nutella needed. We used 1/2 cup nutella and 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter. We also just whole wheat flour (3/4 c. instead of 1 full cup of flour) and added wheat bran for some fiber. These were very delicious and semi-healthy so I feel pretty guilt-free about these.

Chicken Nachos:

This is actually my own invention :) ....I will have to share more later.

Artichoke Dip:

-I pretty much followed this recipe but I used Parmesan cheese to top the dip and mixed some with the rest of the ingredients as well.

Twice Baked Potatoes:

I used this basic recipe without the pesto...I love pesto but didn't have any unfortunately! I love twice baked potatoes because they are so versatile, you can add whatever you want in them. I added pepper, milk, Parmesan cheese, and butter. It turned out delicious!
