Wholewheat Brown Sugar Banana Bread Pancakes.  We did these a wk or two ago and they def taste like banana bread but were a bit too thick and overpowering for me.

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies.  Very, very good.  The kids loved them....the only complaint I had was the recipe only made 10 :)  They turn out very big and very filling!

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies

Chocolate Chip Lava Cookies: Delicious, easy, and a nice change from the traditional flat cookie. But, I will have to experiment with the "lava" part of the cookie. So far, my chocolate chips have just baked on the inside instead of oozing out.

Cheesy stuffed chicken breast stuffed with diced jalapeño, cream cheese, cheddar jack cheese, scallions and bacon!  Cheesy Jalapeño Popper Baked Stuffed Chicken | Skinnytaste    ****This was EXCELLENT!!!  I did it minus the jalapenos due to the kids ate it as well but think I would sneak a couple into mine and Jeff's next time.  It was good without them though....

Skinny Cheesy Jalapeño Popper Baked Stuffed Chicken - Oh yeah baby! Cheesy stuffed chicken breast stuffed with diced jalapeño, cream cheese, cheddar jack cheese, scallions and bacon!

Microwave coffee cake:  I had no sour cream, so I substituted 1/2 cream cheese, 1/2 2% milk for that.  It made the cake thick and cakey. Then I added a wee bit extra crumble topping. Because that's how I roll. Mmmm... Made this a few wks ago for myself and a friend and it was good.

Microwave coffee cake in coffee cup. Much better than the coffee cup cake. Recipe calls for sour cream and tastes much more like the real thing

Make your own rotisserie chicken in the crockpot! yum must try!  Really moist chicken but the skin wasn't crisp and didn't have a great flavor.

Spicy Thai Noodles. Made this for VD and added Shrimp!  AWESOME!!!!

Spicy Thai Noodles - Takes 20 mins to make and is restaurant quality. I would probably substitute Linguini for actual rice noodles as thats one of the things I love about thai noodles.

Honey Garlic Pork Chops. They were good but wont be able to make them again.  Had them right when I was first getting sick with this pregnancy and I cannot deal with the smell again.

Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops - Our most popular pork recipe yet. Super crunchy yet juicy pork chops dipped in an easy to make honey garlic sauce.

Garlic noodles.  Very good and easy.  I didn't have green onions on hand so I omitted them but added shrimp.  It upped the cost a bit but was worth it....

Salty, sweet, savory and completely addictive: garlic noodles! These are yummy! I'd add some chicken or meat or use as a side dish.

Flavored iced tea.  The Arnold Palmer recipe on here is amazing and super easy.  I have made it twice so far and tripled it each time as it doesn't make much in just a single batch.
