Dishin’ Recipes

I found some recipes while surfing this week that I wanted to share. Please note most of these are relatively easy. Like I have stated before I am not a june cleaver by any means. I try to keep things simple and tasty.

One of my favorite desserts is Butterscotch Pudding and I found a great recipe on Annie’s Eats:

Microwave Coffee Cup Scramble..need I say more?

Cheddar Bacon Mac and Cheese…one word..bacon, enough said.

Homemade Chicken Fingers



My girls ask for my Homemade Chicken fingers more than Chicken Nuggets from fast food places and let me tell you, that really warms my heart. They are quite simple to make and they are oven baked but have a crispy coating. This is not what I consider low fat but they are better than store bought or fast food bought.

I have adapted this recipe but can’t quite remember where. My mom owns hundreds of cookbooks ( no, that is not an exaggeration.) and it was from one of them.

Sauces for Chicken Tenders.
