Hey Good Lookin', What'cha Got Cookin'

... How about cookin' somethin' up for me?... These are the words that my husband and daughter are uttering in my house!

I've mentioned before that I rarely cook. It's not that I despise cooking. It's just that I prefer cooking to entertain guests, rather than cooking to survive. Thus, tonight my family had sandwiches for dinner. But after dinner, what did I do? Why I prepared a full meal for eight (8) people! That's right, I whipped up an appetizer, an entree, a side dish, AND a dessert for eight people. (I'm fortunate enough to eat with 7 wonderful teachers every work day!) Would you like to know what's on the menu for lunch tomorrow?

"Tomorrow for lunch we are having ..." (This is my announcement voice that I use each school day to do the morning announcements!)
  • Texas Caviar
  • Mexican Fiesta Bake
  • Rice & Monterey Jack Casserole
  • Magic Cookie Bars

Mexican Fiesta Bake

Magic Cookie Bars

All of the recipes are from a new cookbook I purchased from my school library book fair a few weeks ago. (With the exception of the Mexican Fiesta Bake; it was inspired by a recipe but I altered it quite a bit.) I hope my friends like it!



  1. Hi April,
    Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. I actually DID cook for my family tonight! That is rare since we are all so busy. I am glad you like my Tribe Talk idea. It is still new and slow to take off, but I think worth the effort. Hope to see you on soon!

  2. Came over from Texas Blogging Gals. I love the name of your blog!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog, April. We love cooking at our house. We tend to spend the weekends cooking so that during the week we can pop it into the microwave and eat. Being on my feet for 8 hours with 1st graders and then standing to cook dinner....rather not.

    If I had cooked all those goodies for my team at work I think small bites would have been taken out, HA HA!!

  4. I'm thinking the family needs to stop by school tomorrow to have lunch and eat "Mom's good cooking". Looks delicious! I began a diet today and could probably eat that entire pan of Magic Cookies Bars by myself right now. LOL...I just read that you and I are "swap partners" at Lori's Spring Fling, so I stopped by to say "Hello" and I signed on to Follow you, so I'll be back!
