Summer Salad

As far as food goes, I love ANYTHING with pasta in it. With that said, I love, love, love cold pasta salads.  My mom makes a delicious cold chicken pasta salad. Since I love that one so much, I decided to try this new recipe I found. It has chicken, pasta, and all kinds of veggies in it (onion, two whole bell peppers, broccoli, tomatoes). It also has a vinaigrette dressing mixture and ranch mixed in. It was really good, and it made a lot...so it lasted us quite a few meals!

Fresh Fruit and Halloween

We're quickly approaching the official first day of summer, and that means fresh fruits and vegetables! We stopped at Farmer John's yesterday to pick up some produce, and it was definitely worth it. Not only did it taste good, but it looked so pretty when it was all thrown into the basket that I couldn't resist a picture!

To follow up that healthy combination of foods, I have an UNhealthy dessert to share! I made Halloween Bars for the VBS teacher break room this week. Why are they called Halloween bars? I have no idea. They're basically just magic cookie bars. Whatever they're called, they're good. And here they are...

The Ultimate Cookie Dough Lover's Dessert

Before I begin, in my defense, I was in Greenville on a mission trip last week, and the week before that I was busy getting over graduation and getting ready for the trip. So now that I've given my excuse, I'll go ahead and say I haven't baked in a couple of weeks. Shocking, I know. HOWEVER, these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies make up for the absence. They're delicious, and like the title of this blog post says, the ultimate cookie dough lover's dessert. They're brownie on bottom and homemade cookie dough (egg free!) on top.

Another excuse for the lack of baked goods...I just got a MacBook Pro and have had a really hard time getting off of it. It's incredibly addicting. But there will be more baking this week because it's VBS week. We all know what that means...teacher break room desserts!
