Thanks to all of you who entered, and for making this a fun event for both Dawn and me!
So for those who didn’t win but still want some cooking inspiration, you can either buy Dawn’s cookbook :) or follow some of the links here. I’ve been trying a few new recipes lately, so here’s another foodie post with some link love!

Fabulous, fabulous recipe. This can be an all-in-one dinner, or I’ve served fajitas as the main dish and this as the side, or this as the main dish and chips & salsa on the side. The flavors in this dish are amazing. But hey, it comes from the Pioneer Woman herself, so it has no other option. :)
My sister Ervina told me about this recipe about a year, and I’ve made it so many times since then. It’s super easy, and super good ~ what’s not to like about that? I’ve served this with rice and refried beans on the side for a bit of extra, or it’s good by itself too for a quick supper.
I didn’t follow the exact recipe, but I used the tomato/basil/mozzarella combo with a bit of feta cheese as well, and it was AMAZING. I love basil, but I snipped it in small pieces instead of big leaves as shown. This I love as a breakfast or luncheon food.

This is good old-fashioned comfort food, and it really was good. :) Sometimes my kiddos don’t always appreciate a new gourmet recipe and the unique ingredients I love so much. But this is one that is so great for kids too.

This is another recipe from Ree, and she does not disappoint. Chicken Alfredo is a common recipe, and not difficult at all. But the farfalle pasta and a bit of white cooking wine sets this apart from the rest and adds a great new flavor to a traditional recipe.

I made these for a baby shower, and while they were a bit time consuming for 50 people, the first bite made it all worth it. :) The great part about these is that the crepes can be made ahead of time and even frozen. This is definitely a keeper recipe.

It’s rather beyond me why someone [i.e. my husband] would choose an oatmeal cookie over a chocolate chip, but hey, he does. So I may as well may a bangin’ one, right? :) The photo does NOT give credit to the cookies. They look much better in real life. Maybe also because I roll them in white sugar before baking them, a personal addition to the recipe. The key is in the baking time, ensuring not to overbake them.
And, last but not least, we’re beginning the season of all things PUMPKIN!
My first new recipe of the season was a great delight.
I’ve already made it three times in three weeks. :)
The description caught my eye, and it did not disappoint. It does indeed taste exactly like the Starbucks pound cake. Wowsers. It is perfect with coffee for dessert. Or breakfast. Or snack. :)
Happy weekend, all!
