If Rachael Ray...

...had kids, she would know that there is no such thing as a "30 minute meal!" (except from a can) BUT, I am trying them anyway, despite the constant interruptions by two tiny people who live in my house, and these are what I have captured for your appetizing pleasure...

The 2 on the end are those tiny people who live with me and extend my cooking time, and the big one in the middle is just so lucky that I cook these amazing meals for him!!

This was an INCREDIBLE dinner that took us 3 days to finish eating. (we love left-overs!)
Shrimp Scampi Pizza

When Dan walked in on this one, he called it a "man meal!" The onion rings came recommended by my friend Tanya, who got it from THIS site.
The main dish is called Sloppy Porchetta.

This was a seasonal recipe that I did during the fall, but LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!!
Turkey-Thyme Meatloaf with Mashed Sweet Potatoes
(for those who know how I cook, those are all my fave ingredients!)

These yummy treats are actually a recipe given by a neighbor in my ward. It think they are called Scottish Kisses, and are caramel-covered marshmellows. Dan and I had so much fun at the stove, where you have to work as a pair to get the caramel mixed and stirred. We waited until the kids were in bed so we could do this alone, and maybe enjoy them alone as well!!

Thanks to Jamie, who gave me the magazine subscription for Christmas! I am totally using it weekly.

Mmm it all looks so yummy. Good job!

Tanya said... all looks so good, I'm really hungry now. (After cookies for breakfast, I really shouldn't be.)

I'm glad you like those onion rings, my family loved them too.

Those Scottish kisses sound good too. Can you make them with any kind of caramel recipe, or is there a certain one to use?

I'm pretty sure that any recipe works. BUT you have to use KRAFT marshmellows, and they are cut in half.

Tanya said...

Thanks! I'm totally going to try those. And that yummy turkey meatloaf dinner, too.
