What’s In Your Kitchen Wednesday

So, we have eight school days left here, and then the madness of summer begins: basketball camp, karate camp(s), t-ball games, swimming lessons, and “Fun Factory” days…what ever happened to the “lazy days” of summer?  Also: can I sign up for some of this instead of work, laundry, and grocery shopping?

Do any of you have super awesome summer plans?  Or maybe just relaxing summer plans?  We’re tossing around the idea of driving to Silver Dollar City for a short family-friendly vacation in either July or August, which (1) could be really fun; or (2) could be miserable in the heat of the summer.

Before we get to the party, I still have two giveaways going on right now: one for a Kitchen Aid Mixer and a basket of surprise goodies, and another for a Samsung NX1000 camera/$50 Amazon gift card.  So make sure you’re all signed up to enter.  I’d LOVE for one of you to win!  Also, I’m posting over at Somewhat Simple tonight, so it would be kind of awesome if you stopped over and said hello.

This week’s top view post were these Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes from A Kitchen Addiction.  Wowzers, pancakes and cookies all in one?  Sign me up, please.


Ooooh, this Firecracker Chicken from Life With the Crust Cut Off sounds amazing. I’m always looking for new ways to jazz up chicken around my house, and this? Needs to happen soon.


I’m also kind of in love with these Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies from The Brunette Baker.  Plus, they’re gluten-free!

Pretzel PB Cookies

These Cheesy Bacon Bites from The Tasty Fork contain two of my favorite ingredients: cheese and bacon. You can’t go wrong! Unless you don’t like bacon; in which case, what?


Aaaaand, since I’m a total dip fanatic, I’m pretty much drooling over this Apricot Gorgonzola Cheese Spread from Crumbs and Chaos.  Must. Make. Today.


Thank you all so much for coming back each week to make this party a great success!  I love seeing all of your great creations, and it’s such an awesome way for me to find new blogs to stalk read.

    I’m glad my little one is too young to have summer plans yet – we are all about relaxing this summer and hopefully taking a quick overnight anniversary trip to the beach!

    Sounds like you have quite the busy summer! Hopefully you’ll be able to sneak in some relaxing time in all that 🙂 My daughter is almost 2, so every day is summer over here! Plus, it’s been so nice to actually get outside and enjoy the weather.

    Thanks for the party Ashley!

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
