LOTS of FUN and EASY Food!

Starting off with some easy and yummy snacks!
Frozen French Fries with melted cheese and garlic on top.
Trader Joe's frozen Lemongrass Chicken Spring Rolls and Chicken Samosas. I made a very special dipping sauce for them with soy sauce, Sriracha, hot Chinese mustard and Mango Chutney. It was TO DIE FOR!
More goodies from Trader Joe's, Pumpkin Ravioli with Cheddar Alfredo Sauce and sausage. The pumpkin filling was slightly sweet and paired really well with the spicy sausage.
I can never leave Trader Joe's without their Korean Sausage, which I ALWAYS have to add an egg on top!
Safeway Meatballs with Pasta-Roni and LOTS of Parmesan cheese on top!
Shredded BBQ Chicken on Hawaiian buns with melted cheese. BEST SLIDERS EVER!
My first time ever with Short Ribs. Slowly braised on the stove top and served over Stuffing! Hubby LOVED it!
More braising with some big O Chicken Legs and this time over Couscous. Sunday night dinner at it's best!
Last but definitely not least, it's pumpkin season, so I busted out the Pumpkin Chili Mexicana complete with Corn Muffins! YUM YUM YUM! I love fall!

Velveeta Eats and A Couple of Sweets!

Another week has flown by and it seemed to be centered around one very special item, Velveeta! First up, some Spicy Cheesy Mini Meatloaves for a quick weeknight meal. This was my first time using Velveeta and it was amazing!
Since I couldn't seen to get enough of the stuff, some Famous Queso Dip while watching football.
Next up, Ultimate Nachos (with chicken instead of beef) because we still had more Velveeta left. (Football makes us really hungry for cheese!)
Finally, Cheeseburger Pizza, which literally combined our favorite 2 items into 1!
Coming off of our Velveeta high, I made some simple hot dogs with grilled peppers and onions and spiced up with Jalapenos and Jalapeno cheese.
Now onto some sweets! I haven't posted many cookies recently because they haven't been that interesting. (Chocolate Chips have been a very reused theme!) On a recent grocery trip, I found Pillsbury's Maple Brown Sugar Cookie Mix and it just seemed perfect for the season. They were super easy to make and I added Butterscotch Chips for extra flavor. They turned out really yummy and no one knew they weren't made from scratch! Shhh....
For my manager's birthday, I made some Chocolate Cupcakes (using cake mix) topped with Pink Vanilla Frosting. SO pretty and sweet!

Some Recent Yummy Dinners

One Friday night, I decided to get fancy and made Chilean Sea Bass. Now this fish is super yummy on its own but poach it in some butter and it just melts in your mouth! Of course I had to go the extra few miles and drizzled some Hollandaise Sauce on top (super easy Blender Method and added a poached egg. Oh and don't forget it's all served on top of STUFFING! (Nope, it's not only for Thanksgiving!)
Next up, not so fancy but just as yummy, Chili Hot Dogs topped with lots of CHEESE! Can't go wrong with that! Hubby was watching baseball (sorry Dodgers!) and hot dogs just seemed perfect.
This is one of our favorite ways to serve anything Mexican. Not sure if you've ever seen these Perfect Tortilla Pans but unlike most As Seen on TV products, these actually work and they're amazing! On this particular night, we had refried beans and Mexican Mac and Cheese all topped with a fried egg because let's face it, everything is better topped with a fried egg!
Another baseball-themed dinner but this time our hot dogs were served Nacho Supreme style topped with cheese, sour cream, tomatoes, jalapenos and olives. YUM YUM!

Now that Football Sundays are back, I can't wait to start making some Tailgating Snacks! (Hey, you can tailgate at home right?) Go 49ers!
Cheesy Garlic Herb Twists just like straight from the pizzeria!
Deviled Eggs, can't go wrong with those!
