Easiest Dinner Ever

Easiest dinner ever??

YES!!! And super delicious!! This recipe will find its way into my recipe box.

Once again, as with all the recipes I make with cream cheese, there was a severe lack of it in the recipe because I couldn't stop EATING it before it made its way into the crockpot. Regardless, there was a sufficient amount to drool over in the end.

Not much to say other than this should be on your menu soon!

Oh yeah!!!

Refreshing Salad

What's so refreshing about this salad? (rhetorical question)

 I have one word for this salad.

If you've read my homemade gummy post, you'll know I was disheartened by the lack of volume of my gummies compared to the picture of the original. After a second try, the taste was 10 times better and I got the volume I wanted :)

First time around I used cherry jello and mixed fruit to go along with the mandatory apple sauce and apple juice. This time I used strawberry jello and peaches. Deeeeeelicious! I made them for my two nephews while we were on vacation and one of them liked them and the other one said "Eeeeeeeeeeeeww!! I don't LIKE it!". Well ok then.

And I sure did have to double the recipe to get that volume. I CALLED it!!

Roasted Parmesan Green Beans

If you've noticed, I've been on hiatus. Had a sick baby for a week, went out of town for a week, baby got sick again on the way home for a few days then I got sick for a few days. But the good news is, I have 4 recipes for you!!

I saw this recipe and thought it would be easy because it's similar to what I do with my asparagus (which deserves it's own post because EVERYONE loves my asparagus!!) and I like green beans and parmesan. With this, we had burgers on the menu so I got these started while Husband put the burgers on.

It basically went like this..

pull them out
extreme disappointment because the presentation looks like crap
depressingly grab one to try
6-7 minutes later they are all gone and the burgers are still on the grill

So basically the green beans were the unintentional appetizer. And the best part? The burnt pieces!!! It was like savoring the burnt ends on a Cagle's steak. This recipe is a total TOTAL winner!! And it was so easy to do. This should go on your menu but double the recipe because we both were hankering for more.

As usual, the original recipe looks a million times better than mine :(

Give these a try!!
