Do you love Samoa Girl Scout Cookies? Well I do they are my most favorite cookie in the universe. Caramel, chocolate, and coconut ='s heaven. I had some cookies left over since we buy them in abundance and then our friends give us some who's kids sell them. So I came up with these bars. They are oh so good and sinful. Only eat one at a time so you don't feel guilty. :)

Bread another one of my weaknesses. It really is terrible. I am such a carboholic. If they had carboholic's anonymous I'd go, I have to! These little bad boys are so good along any dish. We had them along with baked ravioli. Soft, cheesy garlicky and buttery, my kind of bread!

I love using leftovers for new dishes. I also hate to waste them. So I came up with these a while back . I know there are plenty of versions of mashed potato cakes. With the addition of Parmesan cheese, rosemary and chives takes these far away from being plain.

These little bad boys are so dang good. I usually eat them over grilled chicken or over pasta. My father in law loves them over striped bass....I will cook the fish but I defiantly wont ever eat it. Sorry not a fish fan. I can't do it. I have found anything I ate in abundance as a child I can no longer eat today. I'm weird I know. Give these a try they won't disappoint.

I was fumbling around my kitchen trying to come up with a quick meal for last minute company when I realized I had all of these ingredients in my fridge and pantry. Well almost I had to use frozen shrimp. Shhhh....This came out really well and so tasty. The sweetness of the coconut milk alone with the spice of the red curry paste is just an amazing flavor. I added spinach to this just because I had it and needed to use it. Normally it would not have spinach in it. Don't be shy or nervous about trying new things, you would be surprised how well they are liked sometimes.

Frozen boneless chicken breasts (yes frozen), eggplant, tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, onion, and capers all thrown in the slow cooker. Told ya it was super lazy. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Mmmmm, chocolate. The secret here is adding instant coffee to the mix. I really dislike instant coffee. You may thing you will taste the coffee in the chocolate, trust me you wont. No one will ever know. Since I rarely bake period and rarely bake from scratch, I do use brewed coffee in place of the water in my box brownies and chocolate cakes. It brings out the richness and the chocolate flavor.
