I know I haven't blogged/shared a recipe for awhile now, and I'm sorry! But I have a good excuse! My boyfriend, Michael, moved here a week ago and we have been insanely busy trying to find a new apartment (found one), finding him a job (still working), I've been working and auditioning like crazy (booked a short film!), and all the extras that go along with all of those. Once things have quieted down and we're moved (July 9th is when we move), I will be back and better than ever, I promise you!

Bisquick Chocolate Chip Cookies

There's not a whole lot of space for me in my current apartment, so some recipes are on hold until I move (2 more months!) and have more space to hold ingredients, cookware, etc. One day I just desperately wanted chocolate chip cookies. I even had all the ingredients! Well...almost all. I did not have baking powder and/or baking soda. Which was required for EVERY recipe. And, I was lazy, I didn't want to have to go out and buy any. Not to mention I wasn't sure I'd have room to store the leftover. Then, in a remarkable quirk of fate, I stumbled upon a Bisquick chocolate chip cookie recipe! "Whaaa???" I thought! I debated it. I was like, "What if they're bad? Then it'll be a complete waste!". I even petitioned my facebook friends to see if they had any experience with this (no one did). In the end I decided "I really want chocolate chip cookies. And how bad could it be?".

Let me tell you what-this was a success! The first thing that indicated this would turn out well was the fact that the cookie dough was scrumdidlyumptious! Mmm...I want some now.....
Ah! Sorry, got distracted. Anyway, I baked them (what was left after I assaulted the dough), and ate them, and they were great! The texture is definitely different, it will be obvious this is different than a normal cookie, it sort of reminds you of a Bisquick biscuit (which makes sense), but in a still perfectly tasty way! Don't get me wrong, I would never choose these before a good old fashioned real chocolate chip cookie. But, if you are feeling lazy, or just are missing a couple ingredients, these are a great way to still get your cookie fix!

"Eat This" Chicken Fingers

I'm a simple lady with simple tastes. I don't usually want anything to do with frou-frou dishes (except for some select desserts), and really, I probably have the palate of a 5 year old. But gosh darn it I'm going to make the best immature food I can! Anywhozzle (yes, that's a word, I said so), I subscribe to Eat This, Not That's emails, which are actually some very realistic, and awesome tips for anyone just trying to make healthier choices. They also have these great "Cook This, Not That" articles, giving recipes for healthy versions of your favorite things you can cook at home. I LOVE these chicken fingers. They are also something you can tweak around if you feel like it. It's just a great, simple, yummy recipe that adults and children and adults-who-eat-like-children alike will love :)

Superior Macaroni and Cheese

Superior Macaroni and Cheese
There are certain recipes you will always find a million versions of, everyone's got their own kind. This applies to (for example) chocolate chip cookies, chocolate lava cakes, spaghetti and meatballs, and macaroni and cheese. For a recipe-o-phile like me, this means you end up with a looot of different recipes, for one thing (don't even get me started on how many chocolate chip cookie recipes I have). The hope is, once I try them out, I will be able to narrow it down to one recipe (or...at least less). After the first time I made this macaroni and cheese, I deleted all other mac'n'cheese recipes, and no longer even look at others. It is unnecessary. I know I will not like anything more than I like this. I am in a monogamous mac'n'cheese relationship, and I have no desire to cheat. It is a "healthy" (ish) version, it is full of flavor, is thick and creamy, and makes you happy!
