Chocolate-Chip Strawberry Cookies {Recipe Roundup #3}

Chocolate-Chip Strawberry Cookies

Lately I have had an obsession with the combination of chocolate and strawberries. I came across a myriad of wonderful recipes with this sweet pair on pinterest. I decided to give these a try last week. They turned out beautifully. So easy! My son said these were the best cookies he’s ever had! I almost left them in there too long as you can see there is just a bit of browness on a few of them. So look carefully at step 7!

This is another one from the folder called Fort Davis/Terlingua. There are so many good ones in that folder, so you will be seeing more and more from this one. It’s not too often that Dad is in a picture, so I just had to post this one. You can see he’s been riding his bike through the West Texas Mountains. Love it!

Beefy Mac {Recipe Roundup #2}

Beefy Mac

I found this recipe in Sandra Lee’s cook book called Sandra Lee’s Semi-Homemade Fast Fix Family Favorites that I recently received from Paperback Swap. I found tons of recipes in this book that I want to try. This one was actually supposed to be cooked in the crockpot, but I didn’t realize that until the afternoon that I had it scheduled. It easily adapted into a 30 minute meal.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:
12 oz. elbow macaroni pasta
1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 tbs of minced garlic
1 packet of beef stew seasoning
2 cups of shredded four-cheese blend
1 10.75 oz. can of condensed cheddar cheese soup
1 small onion chopped finely
2 cups of reduced sodium beef broth
1 can of rotel

Directions:
1. Cook pasta for 5-6 minutes until about al dente...
