General Tso's Chicken

General Tso's Chicken

I haven’t posted any Asian-inspired meals lately, and I think it’s about time to do so.  I love cooking with chicken-and anything spicy usually gets my attention.  This is a lightened up version of General Tso’s chicken which means that there’s no deep frying involved.  Perfecto!  The sauce is slightly spicy, gingery and quick to make-less than an hour so it’s easily a weeknight meal. Serve with rice and you’ve got a perfect weeknight staple.

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Pie 

 
I have a lot of favorite food & desserts on this blog, but I haven’t talked or posted much about pie.  This year I’m planning on trying to remedy this-just you wait!  I can’t :D.

This pie is in my top 3-Yes, it has a lengthy title, but you needed to hear how awesome it is!  I drool just thinking about it.  It’s seriously one of the best pies I’ve ever made and I’m always delighted to serve it.  I usually make it for Thanksgiving & Christmas, but everyone was too full after a Turkey dinner! My friend had brought me a huge bag of apples-so I knew I had to make it!J

Pumpkin Crumb Bars

 
I sound like a broken record, but it’s really feeling like fall around here.  The mornings are so cool lately and there’s a slight bite in the air.  And for some reason we decided that we are going camping today! I hope we don’t freeze to death.  It’s supposed to rain, but I’m hoping it’ll stay away. Ahh!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Buns with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Cool mornings generally mean that fall is just around the corner, which means that it’s pumpkin time!  I’ve been waiting all year for this-fall is my favorite season.  It’s hard giving up summer, but I think I might just be ready.  But definitely not ready for winter!

Skillet Lasagna

Okay, so here’s the deal-I RARELY cook pasta-type dishes.  But for some reason, I decided to put this one back to back with the Blackened Seafood & Chorizo Pasta.  I have no idea what’s going on, but I think I need my head checked.  Just kidding!

Gavin LOVES lasagna, but I find it’s a tad expensive and time consuming to make, so I’ll only make it for special occasions.  But this, my friends, changes all of that. 
Because:  a) it only takes 45 minutes to make. 
                b) it’s super easy.
                c) inexpensive.
                d) minimal prep.
&, lastly,   e) one skillet…say what!

Cherry Slab Pie

It’s a rare and unexpected occurrence when my dad asks me to make something for him.  It’s even more so when he says “Put that on your organization {he meant the blog, I hope!}”  He tries to refrain from the sweets for the most part so it’s a little serious when he asks.  Of course I can’t say no, but I always get nervous because I want him to love it!
