First time I made this cake, it was for my boss’ birthday (say it, i’m the best employee ever!)! But seriously, this cake was amazing!!!! It’s all I want it to be! A moist vanilla cake, with layers of dulce de leche caramel and an amazing buttery icing!
I’m sure you’ve heard of cakes that you make in a microwave in MINUTES. I have to admit the first time I saw a recipe for one I was skeptical. I mean how can you make a cake in just a few minutes in the microwave?
I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough.

Roasted potatoes are pretty much my life. I’ve been told that I make one mean batch of roasted potatoes, and so I feel like it’s my civic duty to share the recipe with you today. There really isn’t anything that crazy that goes into these potatoes but I guess they are pretty much like crack. People, including my boyfriend, just can’t get enough of them.
441K+ A dd bacon to anything and it will fly off the table. That’s what a caterer once told me and I believe it. Certainly applies here. Whether you’re planning a cookout this weekend or cooking indoors (rain predicted here in Texas), grill up a few of these sizzling treats for a quick appetizer or serve as an entree. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a big plate of these spicy and cheesy , smoky and crispy chicken nuggets .
Step aside, Kellogg. Better crackers coming through. CHEEZ-ITS are wonderful–and we all know this because we’ve been eating them since we were ten (unless you’re 75).
Have I mentioned how addicted I am to Pinterest? Feel free to leave your Pinterest link in a comment so I can follow you-I'm twoofakind on there. Its opened my eyes to many new recipes including my family's new favorite side - Garlic Cheese Mini Puffs . In the post she gives the Red Lobster version and then the recipe for mini biscuits. I'm personally a fan of miniature versions, so I went with that. Ingredients: 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt (*see recipe tips) 1/2 tablespoon garlic salt (*see recipe tips) 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed 1 cup grated cheddar cheese 1/2 cup milk Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
I love all things made with Frank’s Red Hot (or any hot sauce, really. But especially Frank’s Red Hot) I also love cheese. And crescent rolls. And ranch dressing. So this recipe? Is basically my dream come true.

Infusing vodka with Skittles is a very popular trend right now. There are a couple of different ways to do it. My way involves separating all the Skittles into their separate flavors and making five different bottles of Skittles vodka. For this project, you’ll need: One 1.75 liter bottle of vodka (I used Stoli – you don’t need the most expensive vodka, but do avoid the cheap ones) Five 8.5 ounce flasks or bottles (buy them from Amazon – here’s another that looks like a retro milk jug .
Tonic gives a hint of bitterness to either gin or vodka. Seltzer water adds body to flavored vodkas for a light, low-key sipper and sparkle to a heavy drink. Cola is a classic, and goes equally well with whiskey as it does with rum. (If you want to be fancy, squeeze a wedge of lime into your rum and cola and call it a Cuba Libre.)
Cut watermelon flesh into 2-inch chunks and discard rind. Purée one fourth of watermelon in a blender with 1 Tbsp sugar, 1 tsp lemon juice, 4 cups ice, and a pinch of salt. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl, discarding solids. Make 3 more batches. Add sugar to taste if desired and serve over ice.

Last night, I decided to make one of my favorite cookies. These little pastry swirls are so delish! I usually use my favorite pie crust recipe, which I have previously posted, but I decided to try a pastry recipe by the Barefoot Contessa.
