what’s for dinner? aug 6-10

What’s For Dinner is a weekly post that highlights the best & worst recipes I made for dinner over the last week.

 

Best things I made:

Sautéed Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar Pan Sauce

I was desperate for some sort of sauce to serve over chicken breasts last night and was trying to avoid my standby of creamy lemon sauce. I found this one online and it was super simple and very good. I will definitely make it again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

World’s Best Grilled Steak

I’ve made this twice and it is definitely the best steak I have ever made. We are far from steak connoisseurs, but we love this. It makes a cheap sirloin taste like a much more expensive steak. I highly recommend trying it. Don’t be weirded out by the ketchup in it…seems odd to me, but trust me, it’s good.

 

 

Worst thing I made:

Vanilla Oatmeal No Bake Cookies

Let me say, these were not gross. They were good, but were pretty gooey for no bake cookies and sooooooo sweet. Like eating pure sugar with a few oats sprinkled in. I would cut back on the sugar next time and cook them on the stove for at least double the time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roasted Frozen Veggies

We love roasted veggies, but we tried roasting carrots straight from the freezer and they just got soggy and blah. Stick to raw, defrosted carrots – they are much better.

Chocolate Mint Bars w/ Truly Lovely

I’m blogging over at Truly Lovely today with some thrift store makeovers, but I can’t wait for you guys to hear from Kassi of Truly Lovely – she’s got a great recipe to share with you today…

Hello there lovelies!!!

My name is Kassi and I blog over at Truly Lovely, along with my sister Kayli. That’s Kayli on the left, me on the right… and this picture pretty much sums us up… Enjoying a delicious cupcake that we just whipped up all with paint on our hands from the current room makeover!!! 😉

I am thrilled to be swapping blogs with the lovely Paige today! If you’re seriously missing Miss Paige, and come on, why wouldn’t you be… she rocks! She’s over at our place sharing a post as this week’s Bloggie Bestie on Truly Lovely!

While you’re here I’m excited to share my newest recipe with you!!! Awhile back I shared a recipe for Reese’s Pieces Bars on our blog… When I did, I mentioned you could use other types of cake mix and candies to vary the recipe…
Well today, let’s whip up some super easy, super yummy….

Chocolate Mint Bars!!!

chocolate and mint dessert

Ingredients:

Chocolate Cake Mix (I used Devil’s Food)
1/3 Cup of Oil
2 Eggs
1 cup of York Peppermint Pieces!

making a chocolate and mint dessert

Mix all your ingredients together in a bowl.
The mixture will be fairly dry and hard to mix, but that’s what makes them bars, so don’t stress over that, just take your time. 😉 Once the ingredients are all mixed together, I fold in the candy pieces carefully so as not to smash them.

making a mint and chocolate dessert

Press your mixture into a greased baking pan.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.

easy dessert recipe

Cut and serve! I like mine with a tall glass of milk! 🙂

Thanks SO much to Paige for having me over today! Again, don’t forget to visit her at my place!

Happy baking lovelies!!!!

Looks delish, right? Can’t wait to try it! Make sure you jump over to Truly Lovely and check out all of Kassi’s other terrific ideas!
