Yummy Links

There are SO many sites I want to spend time exploring for recipe inspiration!  Here are some of my steady favorites so far:

My Baking Addiction--the blog title pretty much sums up this one
Org Junkie--hosts Menu Plan Monday weekly
The Girl Who Ate Everything--I found lots of great recipes that definitely added some interest to our weekly menus
A Year of Slow Cooking--this caused me to totally discover the awesome-ness of my Crock Pot
Six Sisters' Stuff

Baked Prosciutto and Egg Cups--adorable, easy, and yummy!
Homemade Eggs Benedict--on the time consuming side, but SOOOO yummy!!!
Individual French Toast Stratas
Ocean Spray Blueberry Bran Muffins
Overnight Apple Butter
Overnight Cinnamon Rolls--SOOO good!  These are not difficult at all, but you need to make sure you read the recipe all the way through to make time for all of the steps.
Pear Bread with Topping
Strawberry Chocolate Chip Scones--does not make a large batch, so doubling is good.  The almonds did not add a whole lot...
Strawberry Cream Cheese Bread
SuperSonic Breakfast Burrito--I've never had a Sonic breakfast burrito, but these are supposed to be pretty darn close, and I must say they are delicious!

Appetizers & Sides
Avocado Compound Butter--a yummy addition, but perhaps better on chicken or pork?
Bacon Butter--such a perfect pair to a juicy steak!
Fat Dip--SUPER easy AND amazingly delicious :)
Golden Sweet Cornbread
Homemade Soft Pretzels--A.MAZ.ING!!!
Oaxacan Grilled Corn--DELICIOUS!
Rumford's Baking Powder Biscuits--Josh LOVES biscuits, and these are definitely one of his favorites!
Southern Biscuits--this is probably Josh's second favorite biscuit recipe
Tahitian Coconut Bread
Texas Roadhouse Rolls
Three-Cheese Potatoes on the grill--DELICIOUS!!!

Dijon Apple Salad
Pizza Muffins--really yummy, and Jackson loved them too!

15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta--declicious!!!  This is a new regular item for us :)
15 Minute Marinated Chicken
Baked Acorn Squash Filled with Italian Sausage and Rigatoni Pasta--this was delicious! The filling was even yummy on its own the next night!
Baked Meatballs
Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken--delicious!
Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese--makes a ton!
Buffalo Chicken Meatballs
Cheesesteak Kebabs--what a fun idea--yummy!
Chicken Lime Soft Tacos
Chicken Parm Subs--such great flavor!
Chicken Parm with Croutons--DELICIOUS!!!  I have it on good authority that this recipe translates well to gluten-free!
Cilantro Crusted Roast Beef Sandwiches with Cilantro Horseradish Pesto
Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie
Crispy Southwest Chicken Wraps--SOOO good!  These are also yummy with ground beef...
Dan Dan Noodles--we think chicken or shrimp would be a yummy addition.  I also only used half of the garlic, and my spice-loving hubby suggested dialing down the chili oil next time.  Also, the ramen were yummy, but probably not a necessity.
French Dip Crescents--YUMMY and really easy!
Grilled Cheeseburger Wraps--SOOO good!
Grilled Salmon and Asparagus with Balsamic Butter
Hawaiian Grilled Chicken with Coconut Rice--YUMMY!

Korean BBQ--Brandi made this for us first, and it was amazing!
Mac-n-Cheese Soup and Buffalo Chicken Fries
Pancetta-Wrapped Shrimp All'Amatriciana
Sesame Lime Shrimp Salad with Lettuce Wraps--ours didn't turn out so great, but I will definitely give it another try!
Sloppy Buffalo Joe's--definitely needed a little more zing!
Stuffed Belgian Endive--yummy...IF you like endive!!!  The rest of the recipe was delicious, so we are planning to try this again with a substitute for the endive...
Zippy Chicken Corn Chowder

Crock Pot
Buffalo Wing Soup--one of my favorites!!!
Chicken Parm Crock Pot 
Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken Lasagna--a crowd pleaser!
Crock Pot Cheeseburger Soup--SOOO good!
Crock Pot French Toast--this turned out really well!  It did not crisp up, but it wasn't just a bowl of mush either like a lot of commenters said.  I will add more vanilla and cinnamon last time to up the flavor boost.  Also, it did not heat up well in the microwave for leftovers.  Maybe the oven would go better?
Crock Pot Lasagna 
Crock Pot Pizza Soup
Easy Crock Pot Pulled Pork
Easy Slow Cooker French Dip
Loaded Baked Potato Soup--this is really yummy!  We make potato soup in a regular pot too, but I like this one better just because I can get it all set to go in the morning and not worry about it :)
Root Beer Pulled Pork--this recipe has been going around Pinterest, and I'm sure it was delicious, but I tried it in the early stages of pregnancy, and that just didn't go well...I will definitely give it a second chance one day!
Salsa Chicken and Black Bean Soup--this one was yummy, but it looks a little odd...
Slow Cooker Barbecue Chicken
Slow Cooker Chicken Caesar Sandwiches--YUM!
Slow Cooker Orange Chicken
Taco Soup

The BEST Pumpkin Bread/Muffins EVER!
Better than Crack Brownies--the name is self explanatory ;)
Black Forest Brownie Pecan Pie--surprisingly easy and delicious!

Chocolate Chip Poundcake
Chocolate Peanut Butter Shortbread--for some reason these have become the cookies I make for the winter holidays...  SOOO good and easy!

Mini Pumpkin Tiramisu--a tad disappointing :(
Mountain Sky Banana Bread--YUMMY!
Nutella Marbled Banana Bread--sinfully delicious
Ooey Gooey Cookies--crazy addictive and delicious!  I tried them using a box of chocolate cake mix too, and they just weren't the same.
Peppermint Whoopie Pies--I'm not a huge whoopie pie fan, it turns out, but you would probably like them if you are!  LOL The filling was really good!
Pumpkin Brownies
Pumpkin Cinnamon Chip Scones--SOOO good!
Pumpkin Dip--YUMMY!  We dipped bananas, strawberries, Nilla wafers, and pretzels, but the possibilities are endless!
Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies--DELICIOUS!  Of course, I added chocolate chips also :)
Pumpkin Snickerdoodles--I will mess with this a bit next time to add more pumpkin flavor!
Quaker's Chewy Cho-Oat-Chip Cookies--these are an ultimate favorite in our house :)
Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies--these might be my new favorite cookies...
Ronnie's Fudge--this is Josh's dad's recipe, and it is AMAZING!
Rum Raisin Oatmeal Cookies
