Recipes 5 and 6

I absolutely have to get better at this! Or….not have such a crazy life. But…wait…my crazy life is why I named this Mishapsandmayhem! So…I should be ok with the craziness! So…I did make two new Pioneer Woman recipes this week….TODAY! But I also did some other stuff…so….it is all good! I had a meeting out of town for work on Thursday this week. We usually bring snacks to these meetings and I always struggle with what to bring! I ALWAYS want to bring some great recipe that I made the night before….but sometimes that does not happen! Sometimes….I just end up picking up some Chex Mix or some other snacky type item. But this time…wait for it…..I actually baked something!!!! Chocolate Chip Pan Cookies! I love these! I used to make these all of the time! When I lived in Virginia, a very long time ago, my ex-husband was in the Navy, I made these all of the time!!! The guys who lived on the ship…The John F. Kennedy CV-67, loved them!!! They are so easy to make…and so yummy! Basically you just make the TollHouse Cookie recipe on the back of the Nestle Tollhouse chips bag but you cook it all in a 13×9 pan until it is golden. Well…maybe a little more than golden. If you take it to golden it is usually not done in the middle. It had been a long time since I made them and they were not as done as I like them. Honestly…now I can’t remember how long it said to bake them, but add 10 minutes to that time and then check them! Of course…this is all based on how your oven does! Here are a few pics of my process!

I think they were a hit! If you like a glass of cold milk…these are the perfect side!

Here is what I made today…which is recipe 5 and 6. Today I made Ribeyes with Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce and Twice-baked New Potatoes.

It was amazing! Loved the sauce with the steak! Not a fan of Blue Cheese but that is what this challenge of mine is all about. Pay no attention to the ingredients but adapt to the flavors. I will do this again!!!! As you notice on the finished plate…I made Jalapeno poppers too! YUMMY!!!

So..don’t hesitate to try something new. You never know what you will find!

Have a great week!

Jo
