What's cookin'?

This typically doesn't happen much during this time of year, but I seem to be on a bit of a "try new recipes" kick.  This evening I tried four!  All from Gina's Skinny Recipes.  

We had...


I served everything up along with flour tortillas and tortilla chips,
and cheese, sour cream and salsa.

It was all very well received. 

I really like Gina's recipes 
because they make me stretch out of my 
cooking comfort zone just a bit,
with tasty results!

Bubble Ring Revisited

Monkey Bread Bubble Ring
6 servings

1 loaf refrigerated bread dough, thawed

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Cut dough into 24 pieces and roll into balls.  Melt butter and combine with sugar and cinnamon.  Dip each piece of dough into butter mixture and layer in a greased bunt pan.  Bake at 375° for 20 minutes.  Let cool 5 minutes and then turn out onto a plate.  Enjoy!

We enjoyed last night's garlic bubble ring so much that I just had to try a monkey bread variety for breakfast this morning.  Yum!
