Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake. Update: I am re-pinning this, because I just made it and it is easy and SO good. A few tips, I used two cups of berries instead of one. And I used plain old yogurt, not Greek. This made enough batter for two full bundt cakes, not one. And mine both cooked in 40 minutes at 325 degrees, not 60 minutes. Go out and use your berries for this delicious cake!

Baked Mozzarella Sticks. These were pretty good, like the recipe says you have to eat them right out of the oven (when they cool off a little) otherwise they aren't good. The breading was really yummy and they were great dipped in marinara sauce. They weren't as good as restaurant style ones, not as soft and creamy but still good for making them at home. And easy too!
