Pinterest Recipes

As I have mentioned before, I have somehow turned into a Betty Crocker wannabe. Living at home hasn't been the most thrilling time of my life, but it does help that I have my mom's kitchen, pantry, and sometimes a $20 for groceries when I stop by the store on my way home from work. Until recently, I thought baking and cooking were too annoying and time consuming. During this "transition," I have had to find things to do to entertain myself and not focus being lonely and missing Tyler. Cooking and baking have become a new hobby. I attribute my success to

Here are some of the goodies that I have made with the online recipes below them in case you want to try! I apologize for the quality of some of the pics- I took them with my Blackberry!

Snickers Cheesecake Brownies:
These were delicious, BUT you can honestly only eat one bite and you're done. They were so rich and probably a gillion calories. Recipe:

Fruit Pizza Cookies:
I have been making fruit pizzas since I was a kid, but these were so easy! Instead of handmaking sugar cookie dough, though, I was a bit lazy and used the presliced Pillsbury ones. Also, I recommend using local in-season fruit when possible :) Recipe: 1 package cream cheese & 1 package cool whip mixed together as "sauce," with fruit on top and sugar cookie beneath.

Cocoa Rice Krispe Footballs:
These are so cute for tailgating. I actually made them for the Clemson-Wofford game, though they were a bit stale by the time I served them. Oops! Recipe:

Chicken Broccoli Casserole:

My dad was pretty impressed with this recipe, as was I. I highly recommend it if you are a casserole person. I found the recipe at

Chicken and Cheese Lasagna Rollups:

I have made these twice now, and the first time was definitely the best. I recommend adding lots of extra spices to the recipe and not using Ragu! We are not a Ragu family. Try a different brand or homemade sauce! Recipe:

Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars:

I saved my favorite for last :) I love these and almost ate the whole pan alone, but my dad enjoyed them too! Not healthy, but yummy! Recipe:

Did I impress you? I impressed myself. Can't say any of these are healthy, but maybe I will start working on healthy recipes. Bon Appetit!
