On Parade magazine‘s blog this week (now called, “The Community Table“), I shared this recipe for ONE HOUR ROLLSfrom Christy Denney‘s new cookbook: The Girl Who Ate Everything. The rolls truly didn’t take more than an hour to make, and they turned out pillowy soft and delicious. They’d be a good recipe to utilize for Thanksgiving- easy to make ahead and re-warm.
I have to give my son, RecipeBoy (Brooks), a big shout-out for his latest post. He shared a recipe that my Mom has been making since I was a little kid: CHALUPAS. She usually just made them simple with tortillas, beans and cheese… but his version has other stuff too- including BACON! He made these for us for lunch last Sunday, and we were all super happy. Your kids will love this simple dinner. YUM.
Dear Cake Lovers, I’m excited to share my friend Sommer’s e-Book with you! Sommer is the very talented author of ASpicyPerspective.com. Her newly released e-book is called, “Brilliant Bundt Cakes!” It’s on sale now for only $2.99, and it’s packed with 35 Amazing Bundt Cake Recipes and Cake Toppings- this book is a must-have for holiday baking!! You can order the book here: BRILLIANT BUNDT CAKES.
SPEAKING of Sommer, I made a mini-Thanksgiving dinner for my family last night, and I used this OVEN-FRIED TURKEY recipe from ASpicyPerspective. I changed things up a little by adding smoked paprika to the turkey and dipping the tenderloins in corn flake crumbs. They were REALLY, REALLY, REALLY good. I also whipped up some of my EASY HOMEMADE CRANBERRY SAUCE. If you have visions of buying canned cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving this year, toss that idea out the window RIGHT NOW. Homemade cranberry sauce is so easy to make, and it’s 100 million times better than that stuff in the can!
