eat this. Melted Snowman I first ran across these adorable cookies on Crazy Domestic‘s blog during my weekly quest for bowling snacks. The moment I saw these Melted Snowman Cookies, I knew I had to make them! They are so darn cute!! Plus, they are simple and easy to make! Between work and the craziness of the holidays, I’m all about “easy-to-make!” Let’s gather a few things from the fridge and the pantry and get started!! You know I didn’t even notice the cookie dough packages have two different fonts on the front. You’ll need: 1 package of Betty Crocker’s Sugar Cookie Mix OR substitute your family favorite! See, simple and easy! Mix the cookie mix (does that sound weird to anyone else?) Bake the cookies according to the package directions. Spray a microwave safe plate with cooking spray and put the marshmallows on it. Some of my marshmallows fell over, but I just left them that way! Start decorating! Aren’t they cute? Ahhhh… I’m melting…. What? Hello! All together now! I love these cookies! My simple icing recipe is:

The Pioneer Woman Cooks - Ree Drummond The thing about my recent houseguest Ryan is that he’s an exceptional cook. Bottom line: the guy just flat knows what he’s doing in the kitchen, wrestling pretty much any ingredient to the ground with complete confidence. If he wasn’t a minister, I’d say he missed his calling. But…yeah. The other thing about my recent houseguest Ryan is…he doesn’t so much use recipes. The night before Ryan and his family left Oklahoma (and guess what? For dinner Ryan prepared homemade pasta and his version of a Bolognese sauce. Please bear with me on the quantities of the ingredients Ryan used. He started by grating carrots. I started by having a glass of wine. Then he peeled and halved a red onion. Then he diced up a good amount. Then he sliced and diced a HUGE boatload of garlic. Lots of olive oil went into the Dutch oven. When it comes to adding olive oil to the pan, we don’t deal in tablespoons around here. When the oil was heated, Ryan threw in the grated carrots. Then came the red onions. Intellesting.

Tequila Lime Steak Fajitas — Our Life In The Kitchen What to do with a London broil? I almost never buy a London broil because no matter how pretty they might look, especially when they’re on sale, I just can’t seem to get the hang of preparing it any way that isn’t just too tough. This still wasn’t exactly filet mignon, but the recipe, inspired by my son Chris, who is a Grill Man Extraordinaire, turned out to be quite tasty. The assortment of fixings here is what we like. Add your own favorites because there’s no right or wrong.

Beatty's Chocolate Cake This Ina Garten recipe has been waiting patiently for me to make it, ever since I stopped short on it in one of the Barefoot Contessa's cookbooks. Rich, dense but not too much so, moist, dark and so chocolatey that you'll wonder why you've ever bothered with boxed mixes - there's absolutely no comparison. It's Chocolate Cake, of course - Beatty's Chocolate Cake. The cup of hot coffee in the cake batter really does enhance the chocolate flavor...although we preferred it the next day, after a good chill in the fridge. The coffee overpowered the chocolate flavor the day of making, and while it wasn't terrible (it's chocolate cake, after all!), it was just too strong for us. Beatty's Chocolate CakeBarefoot Contessa At Home Serves 8 Preheat oven to 350F. Sift and combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Pour the batter into the prepared pans and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean. Chocolate Frosting Beatty's Chocolate Cake
