Whatcha' cookin' these days?

Thursday, November 6, 2014

Greetings from a blustery cold evening in Indiana! The weather sure has taken a turn, and it seems fall is transitioning to winter faster than any of us would like. That being said, it appears it's happening whether we like it or not! 

I've been a cooking and baking machine as of late, which is ironic, because I've really never been much of a chef before. But I've found that I'm actually really enjoying trying new meals, and today, I bring some to you! 

Pumpkin Pancakes: 
On Sunday, I still had a little bit of pumpkin leftover from the pumpkin cookies I made the weekend before. So, I found a great recipe on Pinterest that I knew I had to try! These pancakes were super easy to make, and I'd say they went pretty well for my first ever pumpkin pancakes from scratch! Naturally, I had to add in chocolate chips, because why wouldn't I?! They were super delicious and made plenty for two of us (plus leftovers!)!

Chicken Fingers:
I loooooove chicken fingers, but I hate that whenever I get them, they're super greasy and deep fried. But this awesome chicken fingers recipe is baked AND easy to put together. They baked up crispy and delicious in only 25 minutes from start to finish! Perfect weeknight meal! 

I really can't take credit for this one, as Dan is the manicotti maker in our household. This recipe is so tasty, it's like it came from a restaurant! Served with salad and a side of garlic bread and your meal is made! We can't get enough of it (and luckily, there are leftovers in the freezer right now!)!

So, whatcha' cookin' these days? Do you have any must try recipes for us to try out?

AND, you have until noon tomorrow to enter the Courtney Bock Designs $20 giveaway! Don't wait to check it out! 


  1. I am obsessed with this lemon garlic Shrimp and Zoodles recipe I found on Pinterest! Mmmmmmm I'm a huge fan of Zoodles and Squoodles these days so fun and healthier than pasta!
