I needed a good recipe for church pot luck a few weeks ago, and I got this one off the Food Network site, and they were yummy!


1 1/2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
about 1 1/2 cups butterscotch, semisweet chocolate, peanut butter or white chocolate chips. (I used white chocolate)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter and flour a 9 by 13 inch glass baking dish. 
Put sugar in a large bowl. Melt the butter in a small skillet or in the microwave in a glass measuring cup. Stir the butter in the sugar until smooth, cool to room temperature.
Meanwhile, in another medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together.
Beat the egg and vanilla into the sugar mixture. Add the flour mixture a bit at a time until a smooth thick batter forms.(It is really thick!) Fold in chips, as desired.
Spoon the batter into the prepared dish and spread to evenly fill dish. Bake until the blondies are light brown around the edges and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes. 
Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Invert onto a rack and cool completely. Cut into squared and serve.

Okay this one is for when I have absolutely no time and need a super fast dinner, it is not all that healthy but my kids love them and I try not to do it too often.

Dressed up Taquitos

1 box chicken taquitos
1 can red enchilada sauce
Mexican blend cheese
1 can sliced black olives

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put taquitos into baking dish and heat in oven for 8 minutes. Remove pour on enchilada sauce, cover with cheese, and then top with black olives. Heat for an additional 30 minutes or until cheese is melted. I serve them with sour cream and we usually have chips and dip with it as well.
