I borrowed this recipe from a friend (Rachel Meyders), sometime ago, and just recently had the time to try it out. It was so yummy and so easy...I wanted to share the wealth! It really does taste like pink lemonade in cupcake form!
First, prepare a box of lemon cake mix...

...and bake according to the directions on the box.


Now, for the really yummy part (that my friend just experimented with until she got right):

  • 3 (large) cups of powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp pink lemonade concentrate
  • 1 stick of butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • red food coloring
Finally, frost and enjoy!
My own personal tip: The more frosting the better!

Pizza Rolls

We made this for dinner tonight and even though it tasted just like normal pizza it was a fun new way to eat it! These don't look super fancy because I had a cute little 2 year old helping but they still tasted yummy! It was a huge hit with our little girl and I'm sure it would be with any little kid!

*2 C. flour
*1 T yeast
*1/4 t salt
*1 C. warm water
*1 T oil

Stir flour, yeast, and salt together in a mixing bowl. Add warm water and oil and beat until smooth. Add more flour till dough pulls away from sides of the bowl. Mix for 5 min and let stand for about 10 min.

Roll out dough into large rectangle and top with cheese and whatever pizza toppings you like. Do not put sauce on the dough or it will be super hard to roll up! Roll up like you would if you were making cinnamon rolls then cut into rolls. Put on greased pan and let raise 10-20 min then bake at 350 for about 10-15 min. Dip into warm pizza sauce and enjoy!

Green Chile Enchiladas

Another recipe from These enchiladas were very yummy!


3 cups chicken, cooked and diced

1 pkg cream cheese

2 cans green chiles (I only used one, and thought it was fine)

1 can northern white beans


2 TB butter

1/2 cup onion, diced

2 TB flour

1/3 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup milk

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 can green enchilda sauce

1/2 cup sour cream

2 cups monterey jack cheese

8 medium flour tortillas

handful of chopped fresh cilantro
Mix together all the ingredients for the filling. Set aside.
In a med size skillet, melt butter and saute onion until soft and translucent. Sprinkle flour over top and cook until onions are coated. Slowly add the chicken broth and milk. As you add the liquids, the sauce will become less clumpy. Season with salt and pepper and cook until thick- abou 5 minutes. Add sour cream and enchilada sauce.
Assemble enchiladas by placing 1/4 cup filling in the center of a tortilla and sprinkle with some cheese, then roll up and place seam side down in a 9x13 pan. When all enchiladas are filled and in, pour sauce over top and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake at 350 for 25-30min, or until warmed all the way through and sauce is bubbly. Sprinkle with cilantro.

Evil Chicken Dinner

This was super yummy but not very healthy :)

*1 lb Bacon cut into bit size pieces
*1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts.
*3 T. chili powder
*1 Cup Brown Sugar
*Up to 1/2 Cup water
*cooked white rice

In a large pan cook bacon over med high heat until nearly done. (Do not drain). Stir in chicken and chili powder and cook till chicken and bacon are all the way cooked. Add brown sugar and cook till sugar dissolves and sauce begins to thicken, about 4-5 minutes. Add water if needed to thin the sauce. Serve over hot rice!

**So the recipe says not to drain the grease but I thought it was a little greasy so next time I'm going to drain about 1/2 the grease to see how it turns out.
