Mom's Favorite Baked Mac and Cheese
I just won my work's Pasta Cook Off (yesterday!) with this recipe!! Super easy to make (I was almost asleep on my feet by the time I made it) and doesn't require any weird/expensive/hard to find ingredients! I made a few changes - I forgot to buy onion so I made it without. Let the butter melt in the pan and just added flour, etc. I went to Target and in the milk/cheese aisle, I got the cheap blocks of Target brand cheese - 8 oz block of each as follows (NOTE: I doubled my recipe to 12 servings): Monterey Jack, Colby Jack, Sharp Cheddar, Provolone When it came time to add the cheese I thought 'there's no way I need all this!' but MAN am I glad I added all that was recommended! I didn't use dry mustard - I've never bought it in my life and wasn't about to spend $2.50+ on something I needed a tsp of, so I just squirted the right amount of mustard from a bottle in my fridge. And due to making this the night before and not wanting it to dry out - once everything was ready to bake, I covered the pan with tinfoil and then sealed it with the lid that came with the pan and put it in the fridge overnight. I got up early the next morning, took the covers off and popped that baby in the oven. Covered it again, with tinfoil, for about half the bake time. Finished by changing the setting to broil (I had added a bag of sharp cheddar cheese as topping) and let it darken. The pan sat in a warmer for a few hours at work before the party - but it was still cheesy and delicious! I won!

Breakfast Pies
This was a really good recipe for breakfast!! I used one can of Texas bisquits and a regular sized cupcake pan (12 cupcakes) I used about 5 eggs. I'm a vegetarian so I made half of the pies with just cheese/egg/onion/green pepper and the other half I added in precooked ham from this weeks dinner. When making the crust I used about 3/4 of each individual biscuit dough inside the can. I pressed it out in each cup, letting the sides go about halfway up the cup so that it wouldn't overexpand on me in the oven. I sprinkled in onion/ppr, used a 1/4 c measuring cup to pour egg into each pie and then sprinkled with shredded cheese. I put the oven a little less than 400 degrees and checked on the food every so often. I did have a little runover from the pies with ham in them, but i found that if I waited for the egg to harden up a bit, I could push it with a spantula back towards the pie. I had forgotten to spray the pan but it ended up not mattering because the pies just popped out of the tray. I swear my kitchen smelled like McDonalds but without the heart attack factor. Next time I will limit the amount of dough on the bottom of the pie because once cooked it took over about 3/4 of the pie.

Easy OREO Truffles
OH MY GOSHHH!! These are so awesome--and easy!! Lately, I've been fixated on making cake balls (per Bakerella book Cake Pops) but they take hours to make. These truffles, in my opinion, taste just as good and are whole heck of a less hassle! I crushed (food processor) up one entire package of reduced fat Oreos and then bought 2 packages of Reeses PB Cups (the ones that come in packages of 6 and are usually on sale for $1). I crushed up the cups and oreos and mixed them together (saving some oreo crumbs for topping later) making pb cup oreo balls. I ended up not needing to refrigerate/freeze them because the balls had a good consistency. We have an old wire with the octagon base that we used to use to dye easter eggs, but now I use it to put the balls into chocolate bark and take back out again. Really useful. Anyways, I bought red chocolate bark and after all the dipping and everything, sprinkled with leftover oreo...they looked really good with a red/black thing going on! : ) Refrigerated them until time to serve---they're better cold!.
