The Chocolate Whisperer

Donovan saved the day for me this year when I decided to make chocolate covered pretzels for my friends at work.

Corn Dog Poppers and Chili!

So…last night I made bacon, egg, and cheese bagels and homemade hashbrown casserole. The bagels were awesome…if you ignore that I ruined half a package of bacon by burning it to a crisp. I hate bacon. It is my kryptonite. Thank you to all of my fabulous friends who sent me instructions on how to bake it! Hate that popping grease!

Speaking of popping…that leads me to tonight’s dinner…mini corn dog poppers and chili. Found the idea on Pinterest and decided to give it a go…yums! Everyone seemed to like them and they were super easy to make! I think this will be a good one to whip up for group gatherings like football games, or when the guys are hanging out in the garage working on their Harleys. Continue Reading →
