Teriyaki Pork Chops With Sesame Noodles

Seriously, as I sit here thinking of how to introduce these fabulous pork chops all I can come up with is I hope I have all the ingredients because I really want to make this for dinner tonight.  The great thing about this recipe is that you can make all of it for a complete dinner or just what you want.  I know I don’t have fresh pineapple in my refrigerator today so I can just omit that from my dinner.  The pork chops and the sesame noodles go really great together and the pineapple is such a sweet and

New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookie

Pin It

Love those bakery style chocolate chip cookies??? You know the ones I mean- big (really big) cookies, crispy on the outside, chewy good and slightly doughy on the inside…….mmmm  bet you can almost taste it now!

Flour Frosting

Yes, you read the title correct.  This is really a frosting with flour.  Not only is there flour in the frosting, but there is NO powdered sugar.  I usually do not care much for frosting on my cake.  I really would rather scrape it off and just eat the cake.  Not so with this frosting.  It is so light and delicious.    This is by far my favorite frosting.  Seriously, you just have to try it.  You can even eat it with out the cake-it is that good!

3 tablespoons Flour
1/2 cup milk

All-Star Cupcakes

All star cupcakes truly earn their title and it’s not just because there is a star on top.  These cupcakes are delish!  They are moist and full of flavor.  These particular cupcakes are red, white and blue for the 4th of July, but they are easy to make any color.  They are great for sports teams or school events.  You of course can make them with no coloring or with all the colors of the rainbow.  It is all up to you.  So the next time you are asked to bring cupcakes-impress a crowd with these.
