This recipe was just what I hoped it would be...easy and delicious! This tasted just like a meal I would get from my local Chinese restaurant...but made with simple ingredients from the grocery store. I found this recipe on the McCormick spice website. I tweaked it slightly to give it more sesame flavor...plus I doubled it to make 4 healthy sized portions. I served it over white rice. This yummy meal was done in less than an hour from prep to plate. I'll be making this often!

I've seen this recipe in many different places all over the internet. They looked so pretty and sounded so easy that I had to try them! These Apple Roses are not only easy to make and pretty to look at...they are also truly delicious! It's like little individual apple pies.

We love Mexican food in our house, but sometimes I just don't feel like assembling a dozen tacos or burritos! That's why I decided to try this easier way! It tastes just as good but is so much quicker to make and less messy to eat!

It's watermelon season so I'm always looking for ways to serve this naturally sweet fruit! I love serving it this way because it's fun to dip and I love the contrast of the creamy, tangy dip with the cold, sweet watermelon! It's just perfect!

I enjoy making other peoples recipes more than trying to create my own! Although sometimes I end up tweaking someone's recipe so much that it becomes a totally different recipe! I call that a 'Super Tweak'...sounds like 'Super Freak' doesn't it? Now try to get that song out of your head!

I went searching for a new appetizer to serve to my guests on New Year's Eve and I stumbled upon this little gem! I love that it's easy to make but looks very gourmet! I also love that the prosciutto is cooked because I'm just not a fan of raw prosciutto! The flavors are perfect...slightly sweet with a touch of saltiness!

I know Thanksgiving has come and gone but stuffing is great any day of the year! I make this as a side dish to chicken, pork chops, ham and even fish! This can also be used as a layer for so many different kinds of savory casseroles! So don't just think of stuffing as a Thanksgiving food! Try it for your everyday meals also!

I've ordered dessert crepes many times in restaurants because it's a nice light dessert after a heavy meal. They can be filled with just about any fruit or even with melted chocolate! Or just roll them up unfilled and serve them with some fresh whipped cream.

This is one of the best chocolate cakes I ever tasted! I found the recipe on Allrecipes.com. It is a very popular recipe with great reviews! What was unique to me about this recipe wasn't the fact that it's made in 'one bowl' because aren't all cakes made in one bowl? What I found to be different about this recipe is that hot water is added to the batter before it is baked! I'm not sure what purpose the hot water serves, but I always make it that way because the taste and texture are so perfect! Why mess with a good thing?

Potatoes on the grill are so easy and so very good! I love the smoky flavor and it's so much quicker than baking them in the oven! Plus, who wants to turn on the oven for an hour and heat up the kitchen on hot summer days!

You know, I never realized how very versatile boxed cake mix can be! I always thought that the only way to use boxed cake mix was to prepare it according to the directions on the box! I was pleasantly surprised to see that there are so many ways to use it straight from the box, without preparing it! So much easier that way!

I have many pork 'chop' recipes but not many pork 'roast' recipes! I don't think I'll ever need to look for another pork roast recipe after trying this one because it was the best pork roast I've ever tasted! And I love how easy it was to make! Only 6 ingredients in this perfectly delicious recipe! Just mix together the simple spice ingredients, then rub it all over the pork loin and bake for 40-45 minutes.

My blogger friend Judith from The Midnight Baker food blog, gave me a few packages of Udon noodles. Judith is always making such delicious Asian recipes! She makes me crave this stuff! I decided to go looking for a recipe that I know my hubby will love! He's a Thai food junkie so I figured that's a great place to start.
