Week of November 10th, 2013

Frito Pie- James came home from school one day with a small bag of Fritos and I couldn't stop thinking about Frito Pie

Neighbors brought pizza over for a dinner together

White Bean Chicken Chili- yummy lime flavor

*Big Fat Greek Tacos- super fantastic!! Make these

*Roasted Shrimp with Orzo- similar to my spinach orzo salad but different enough that it's worth trying out. I think the fresh herbs are 100% necessary in this dish.

*Butternut Stuffed Shells- I was the only one in my family raving about these but I really, really liked them

*Glazed Doughnut Muffins- the tops were amazing (I admit to pulling off a few tops and discarding the bottoms)
*Chocolate Banana Bread- 5 stars. I can't wait to have some overripe bananas again!

Week of November 4th, 2013

*Oven Tacos- these were a big hit at a game night we hosted. Great for a crowd!

*Chalupa- very easy crockpot recipe which turns out like a mixture a refried beans and shredded mexican pork.

Community Group- I brought bacon because the gal making the main dish made the yummy tarragon and dill souffle I've made a few times recently.

Potstickers and broccoli

Salmon and Asparagus

Chicken Cesear Salad

Family dinner at Bendito's Chicago Style Pizza. Decent pizza but not traditional Chicago style.

Week of October 28th, 2013

Make your own pizza night

*Honey Lime Chicken Enchiladas- I made these for community group and everyone enjoyed them. It was a little different to have a sweet flavor in the mix with the spicy but enjoyable.

After telling Mark the soup recipe was pulled up on the laptop and the ingredients were on the counter as I went off to a prental massage, I got a text saying "Soup takes 9 hours in the crockpot"  Oops! Quesadillas and Apple slices for this night!

Chipotle for Halloween

*Zuppa Toscana- finally got to enjoy the crockpot soup :) The flavors in this were great- sausage, bacon, potatoes, heavy cream, etc

Pizza at my sister's because our power was out and she was nice enough to accept my invitation for us to come to dinner :)

Broccoli Cheese Cornbread- a must make for fall. This was one of my favorite recipes last year.

Week of October 21, 2013

This week Angela and I swapped recipes again. It is so fun to cook rockstar recipes all week long. It was really hard to rank these recipes because they were all totally delicious and I would make every one of them again. But I think the all time (and surprising) winner was the sweet potato hash. I admit that I would never have made that one on my own but the flavors were amazing. If you make anything from this list of fantastic meals- try that one!

*Barley Black Bean Corn Burritos- this was so easy to throw together and although it ranked last on our list of favorites I sent Angela, it's really not fair to this recipe because it was a really great meal. It just was up against too many outstanding recipes!

*Bacon Lemon Egg Bread- So delicious! It is a baguette stuffed with an egg, bacon mixture. We gobbled up the entire baguette and would have probably eaten a second :)

*Tex Mex Pot Roast- The meat was delicious on it's own but served on top of a baked potato with sour cream and cheese??? Home run!

*Greek Panzanella- I made this for lunch one day and then ate it the next day and then the next day. YUM! I love greek salad as it is but combined with toasty bread cubes really took this recipe up a notch.

Carne Asada (from TJs) and Dad's Guacamole for Mark's birthday

*Sweet Potato Hash with Sausage and Eggs- 5 Stars. Make this. Enough said.

*Oreo Poke Cake for Mark's birthday- Yep, pretty much as amazing as it sounds.

*Chewy Double Chocolate Cookies- Also amazing. Made 2 batches in 3 days.
