Because I can’t leave these cupcakes alone.
They are just too good.
So I made them into a birthday cake.

Happy Birthday to the best mother-in-law a girl could ask for!
Today – we celebrate.

I’m finally getting back into cooking and baking.
Blogging, not so much (as you can tell).
Life is a little crazier with a baby.
I can hear all you veteran moms laughing at me right now.
Anyways, here are some of the dishes we’ve been cooking up as of late. 

Tor starters, I promised Mike I would do his Master Omelet justice here on the blog:

On Labor Day, Mike cooked up a fabulous breakfast.  He made a giant Bacon, Cheese, Mushroom & Pepper Omelet.  It was fantastic.  Later that same week he made these awesome Grilled Chicken Clubs.  Sadly, I have no pictures of those.  But take my word for it, they were yummy.  He’s my own Take Home Chef!! 😉

Next, Curried Ground Turkey with Potatoes.  Only I used beef. (Yes, I know that’s not very Indianish of me.)

Also on the menu: Buffalo Chicken Wraps from Everyday Food

The recipe called for hot sauce for the chicken.  Next time, I would definitely use wing sauce.  They tasted more like Spicy Chicken than Buffalo Chicken.

I do not have any pictures of this, but I hosted a girls night this week and made Hot Fudge Peanut Butter Pudding Cake.  Make this ASAP.  And just remember – it’s fat, sugar, and calorie free!!!! 😉

And last but not least, I made this Bloomin’ Herb Bread last night.  It’s one of our favorites and is so super easy to make.

Next up on the list is salsa.  I, too, am fed up with the jarred stuff.  It just doesn’t cut it anymore.  Traci made this recently and let me taste it – i’m hooked!  Can’t wait to make my own.

I’m going to be brutally honest.  It was not health-food-night at the Smiths’.

 Sweet & Sour Chicken               Hot Fudge Pudding Cake

I blame Traci.  She’s the one who showed me these recipes.  Ok, to be fair, I saw the pudding cake on my own, but she tempted me by posting it on her blog a while back.

I’m literally shaking from all the sugar coursing through my veins right now.  And JuJu doesn’t know what hit her.  But it was oh so good.

Fortunately, both Mike and I worked out today.
Unfortunately, we obliterated those workouts with this meal.
Fortunately, we don’t eat like this every night.
”Unfortunately”, we have plenty of leftovers for tomorrow night.   
Fortunately, when you’re pregnant, your stomach is already sticking out so it doesn’t matter how much you ate at dinner – no one can distinguish baby from cake. 
Unfortunately, tomorrow is weigh-in-day.  (Dr’s appointment.)
Fortunately, we will be working out in the morning.  Again.  And just like that we’ve come full circle.

Enjoy!
