Wednseday Winners

Hey Everybody! This week has been full of great recipes. It was really hard for Jer and I to pick our favorites, but we have narrowed it down to four.

I've decided instead of typing out the whole recipe I will just post the link to the recipe and then you can find it yourself!

Numero Uno on our list:
Artisan Bread

Click here for the recipe.
* I made this in a large, round white Corningware casserole dish. I misplaced my lids so I just used foil and it worked great. 
*I only tried the original recipe this time around but I'm planning to do a cheddar version and a cinnamon-sugar version.
What I liked:
-Only 4 ingredients and all things I had on hand.
-So EASY and delicious. 

Next Up:
Avocado Chicken Salad

Click here for the recipe.
What I Liked:
-Perfect for summer, no cooking!
-I used canned chicken from Costco, it was literally so easy because I had everything I needed at the ready.
-I used less than a tablespoon of mayo (probably could have done without it) because I used a lot of avocado which made it creamy.
-We ate it on top of our homemade artisan bread. YUM!

Now for a yummy snack:
Mango Chia Pudding

For the recipe, click here.
*I got this recipe from Jer's uncle's wife Kellie, she said she will triple the recipe because she loves it so much. I made a single batch yesterday and found out she's right!
*One negative side- there is a grower's shortage on chia seeds right now so they are a little more pricey.
What I Liked:
-Yummy AND healthy. I love that combo. No guilt.
-The texture of the chia seeds takes on a tapioca-esque feel as you refrigerate the pudding.
-Chia seeds are high in omega 3 and are very good for you. 

Last but definitely not least: Dessert!
Oreo cupcakes!
For the recipe, click here.
 *I halfed this recipe and I mixed the oreo crumbs into the frosting. The frosting turned out very runny (followed the directions exactly) so I would omit the heavy cream and maybe even add a little powdered sugar.

What I Liked:
-The oreo half on the bottom made a yummy crust on the bottom and was aesthetically pleasing.
-These were very tasty and relatively easy. Would have been even easier if I had just bought frosting from the store. 
-A fun spin on just a plain old Oreo. Jer loves Oreos so this was his top favorite recipe for the week.

Try these recipes. They are so good and mostly easy!
