Okay, so where am I going with this? This past Monday night was the The Bachlorette finale (thank God...I think this is the dumbest show, ever!) Anyhoo, it was my house guest's (a.k.a., my daughter) night to host dinner for her friends that watch the show together. She made the Chop Chop Salad (to die for) and I helped her out by making the bread and dessert...enter Pinterest. On my "Sounds Delish" board, I have been accumulating different food items that I want to try. That is where I found this:

It is called Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls or as the creator likes to refer to it "Crack Bread"...I am sure that is because it is somewhat addicting! Also, I can see from her picture (I forgot to take a pic of mine before we inhaled it) that I could have added MORE cheese and bacon. Anyhoo, I think all that ate it would give it a big thumbs up!
Then, for dessert we had Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries or what I would like to rename "Little Bites of Heaven". They were simple, yet just hit the spot ! I had to revise the recipe somewhat because it called for Graham Cracker crumbs and the ones that I had were not any good so I improvised and used crushed, un-iced sugar cookies instead...worked great in a pinch! What do you think? Look good enough to eat?
So long story short...if you haven't Pinterested...you must give it a try! I hope the girls enjoyed their dinner!
Last but not least, a few cookies that I made the other day. It was one of Kelli's bff's daughter's (wow, that was a mouthful) 1st birthday and she wanted me to make a few cookies to stick in the gift box. Hmmmm, what to make?! You can't really go wrong with Hello Kitty, now right?
Hope Gracie had a great 1st birthday!
I have baby cookies to make by Friday and I hope to have my table project done so that I can share it as well. Till then...Happy Baking!
There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
