copy cat

If you know me very well, you know I LOVE mac & cheese. All kinds. Kraft is my favorite for home, but around Tulsa, I have found mac & cheese goodness at The Brook and Outback, and I hear Oliver's Twist has a great one too. Well, tonight I made use of Copy Kat Recipes, a great website that gives you food's equivalent to a knock-off handbag. I made one of my favorites, Outback's Macaroo n' Cheese. It was delish.

We followed that up by attempt #2 at Chocolate Chip Cookies. Sounds so simple, but we made a batch last night that turned out terribly. There's a certain website that has failed me more than once now...not mentioning any names...ahem, allrecipes.com, ahem. You know the saying, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice...well, you won't fool me a third time. Tonight, I turned to trusty Food Network, and the cookies were perfect. I'm not saying the first batch wasn't some sort of user problem, but the last recipe I pulled from that site didn't turn out either, so you can imagine my skepticism.

I uploaded some pictures from my camera last night. There are some good ones. Enjoy! Hope you are having a great week!

These pics are from when we made Mexican Manicotti!

And here are some Halloween pics. Popeye and Sandy. Haha. Not quite the normal dynamic duo, but my Olive Oyl costume didn't quite work out. Maybe next year!
