Favorites!! ~

Okay, I know....I am a big slacker on my blog.  But to my is the holidays, I do have a full time job and I am a wife and a mother to two.  AND I have still been cooking & baking.  Since I have not been good about doing my normal photo taking while cooking/baking....I am going to share my final pics and some of my favorite recipes I have tried lately. 

1)  Butter Pecan Cake by Bake or Break.  This has been my favorite new recipe I have tried.  This was a hit and I am even thinking about making it AGAIN for Christmas.  The cake part is very moist and the icing is yummy, too.  The only thing I can advise in making this cake is that I didn't brown the pecans nearly as long as it said in the recipe and they were still on the verge of being burnt.  Next time I will do the pecans on low and only for approximately 5 minutes.

2)  Creamy White Chicken Artichoke Lasagna ~ a Kraft recipe.    This one was a new favorite of mine, also.  I really liked the combination of flavors.  I didn't have any sun dried tomatoes so I skipped those in my lasagna.  I will definitely make this one again!

3) BEST BISCUITS EVER.  EASIEST BISCUITS EVER.  I was so shocked when I saw this recipe and it said - 4 ingredients.  Then, I read the ingredients and I was convinced there was no way these would turn out right.  Well, they did and they are incredible.  Here is the recipe for the 7-Up Biscuits.

4) Cheeky Kitchen's White Chicken Chili.  This is another good one!  I love using chicken versus beef in all different sorts of recipes that everyone has been making for years.  It adds a new twist on an old dish.  This one has a kick to it and is great.  I use the recipe and throw everything in the Crock pot for the day.

5) Family Bites ~ Fudgy Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars.  I made this bars for Thanksgiving to have something chocolate to be able to snack on while cooking.  These are rich and delicious!   A little bit of all sweet flavors in one little bar.

 5)  Glorious Treats ~ Rolo Pretzel Bites. These are super easy and they taste similar to homemade caramel turtles.  These are great to make for parties, etc.

6) Six Sisters Stuff ~ Butterfinger Blondies Recipe. I made these for Jack's birthday.  Wowza!  They are rich and a lot of butterfinger. If you want that sweet taste minus the chocolate....these are the way to go!
