Snickers Popcorn Balls or Snickers Wads

A few weeks ago my daughter came home from school and asked if we could make Wads.  Ummm... what?  This is kind of how our conversation went: Ellie:  "Mom, can we make Wads?" Me:  "What the heck are Wads?" Ellie:  "You know, Wads. " Me:  "Um, no, I really don't know what Wads are.  What are they?" Ellie:  "Mom!  How do you not know what Wads are?  Everyone knows what Wads are!" Me:  "Seriously, Ellie.  What are Wads?"

Cheesy Loaded Twice Baked Potato Casserole

Cheesy Loaded Twice Baked Potato Casserole

Apparently I'm on a loaded baked potato kick.  We loved our Loaded Baked Potato Salad.  This is similar but a hot casserole rather than a cold salad.  Gotta love 'em both, right?

[amd-zlrecipe-recipe:146]  This is such great comfort food.         We're linking to the … [Continue reading...]

Apple Pie Bars

Apple Pie Bars

This is the perfect dessert for pie lovers who don’t want the hassle of making a pie.  You get the yumminess of the fruit filling combined with a soft, not too sweet, cookie.  Delicious! I might have used too much of the dough for the bottom layer.  I didn’t have enough (I think) for the […]

Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings

Crock Pot Chicken and Dumplings (Slow Cooker)

I can honestly say I’ve never been a fan of Chicken and Dumplings.  I’m not sure why.  And to be honest, I can’t ever remember eating them.  I think they just freaked me out because I’m not much of a bread soaked in anything kind of girl. That being said, I decided to go out […]
