Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Can I just say that I have died and gone to heaven. Cheesecake stuffed strawberries….how have I not made these before?! I’m serious. They are amazing! Making up the filling was a breeze too. Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Yield: 10 - 12 strawberries (depending on size) Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 0 minutes Total Time: 15 minutes Ingredients: 1 pound large strawberries 8 ounce block cream cheese – softened 3 – 4 tablespoons powdered sugar (depends on how sweet you want the filling) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or use almond, lemon, etc. ) Graham cracker crumbs Source: Inspired by pictures seen on Pinterest Directions: Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla with a mixer or by hand.

You could also drizzle or dip strawberries in chocolate if desired. Enjoy!!! Honey Mustard Chicken with Bacon and Mushrooms. “This is probably my favorite way to eat chicken.”

Honey Mustard Chicken with Bacon and Mushrooms

That’s a quote from my husband the last time I made Honey Mustard Chicken with Bacon and Mushrooms for dinner. Marinate some chicken breasts in honey, mustard, and lemon, then top with bacon, mushrooms and cheese… How could that go wrong? I love to serve this dish with a side of oven fries and a crisp lettuce salad. It’s a meal full of flavor! Begin by making the marinade for the chicken.

Here’s what you’ll need for the toppings: sliced fresh mushrooms, mostly cooked bacon (it will cook more when baked in the oven), grated cheddar, and fresh parsley. After the chicken has marinated, heat a small amount of oil in a large skillet. Scrape out the pan, and toss in the mushrooms. Assemble the chicken in a large baking dish. After baking for about 20 minutes, chop up some fresh parsley and sprinkle atop before serving!

Most gawked all-time. Buffalo Chicken Bites. One of my favorite guilty pleasures is buffalo wings, especially dipped in blue cheese dressing.

Buffalo Chicken Bites

There's something about the buffalo chicken and blue cheese combo that really appeals to me and I had a craving for it lately. When I came across a recipe for ham and cheese stuffed pretzel bites, I figured I could substitute it with chicken and blue cheese. That's when I decided to make these Buffalo Chicken Bites... yum! These are such an awesome snack, which could be a meal in itself if you have enough of them. It's not hard since they are addictively delicious! I plan on making these again and experimenting with other fillings such a steak, provolone, sauteed peppers and onions for Philly Cheesesteak Bites... or even pepperoni, italian sausage, mozzarella and mushrooms for Pizza Bites.

Homemade Baked Mozzarella Sticks. Mozzarella sticks are a delicious treat, probably one of the most popular appetizers at restaurants, and a fun party food.

Homemade Baked Mozzarella Sticks

They tend to be rather fattening, especially considering they are usually fried, but they are so irresistibly tasty. So how do you give in to the temptation that is mozzarella sticks without the guilt? Make healthy, Baked Mozzarella Sticks! Here is a recipe I love, and your family will too. Ingredients 1 pkg. low fat mozzarella cheese strings (8-10 sticks) 1/2 cup flour 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten 1 cup dry bread crumbs or Italian style panko (seasoned) marinara sauce for dipping Directions 1. I hope you enjoy this delicious, healthy twist on traditional fried mozzarella sticks. Note: Some comments indicate that mozzarella is oozing sooner than time prescribed in this recipe- keep an eye on the sticks while baking and feel free to shorten the bake time to suit your oven. Carbonara. I love carbonara.

Carbonara

It's fast, simple and cheap, yet very filling, warm and comforting. I generally don't like it when I get it at a restaurant which is surprising to me because it is so easy to make! Today we used bacon rather than pancetta for a few reasons. We have tried both in this dish, and I prefer bacon. Also at the store I went to, they didn't have the really good pancetta, only the thin round kind which I am not a fan of. We also made garlic bread. Usually we use raw garlic on garlic bread. The butter garlic mixture with some parsley added. Crushed red pepper on top and ready for the oven. My favorite pasta for this dish is linguine. I slice the bacon in half the long way, and then cut small pieces the short way. When the bacon has about 7 minutes left, I drop the pasta and add a few pieces of diced onion to the bacon.

When the pasta has 1 minute left, add garlic to the bacon. Work quickly now. Braided Spaghetti Bread & The official blog of Americas favorite frozen dough.
