It's been TOO long!

Ok, so it's been almost a freakin MONTH since I last blogged! YIKES!

Ok, time to play catch up!

First off, I remade/doctor'ed up the Buffalo Chicken Lasagna.

Buffalo Chicken Pasta

I'm not posting a recipe for it because frankly I only made the following changes from the recipe that's posted previously.

-Penne pasta instead of lasagna noodles
-Cooked them before adding to the ziti-like mixture
-Ricotta cheese, real egg, and Parmesan cheese to the ricotta mixture
-added mozzarella cheese to the mixture and on top.

That's about it. It was MUCH better than the lasagna, but I still didn't like it and passed it on to my hubs.

Here's another pic:

One of the disadvantages of taking time off is forgetting what I've made over the past month. I did make these Double-Tree hotel copy-cat cookies, but they were an epic FAIL. Maybe it was something I did?? All I know is that the cookies at Double Tree are AMAZING and these were not! And I just realized that I threw out the pictures I took of them by accident. I'll post the recipe though.

I don't know if you guys have heard of the copy cat cookbook out there? It's copy cat recipes of famous restaurants' foods, such as the Double Tree's cookies, Red Lobster's biscuits (which are out of this world amazing!, etc. Let me know if you want a copy and I'll email it to you.

Double Tree Chocolate Chip Cookies
Double Tree Hotel Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup oats (uncooked)
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup Dark Brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. lemon juice
12 oz. chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets.

Place the butter in a large bowl and cream lightly with an
electric mixer. Add the sugars and beat on medium speed for
about 2 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well
after each addition. Add the vanilla and lemon juice and mix

In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, oatmeal,
baking soda, and salt. Add to the creamed butter mixture and
stir well to blend.

Add chocolate chips and walnuts and stir
to combine. Using a 1/4 cup measure or a 2−oz ice cream scoop,
drop the batter on the cookie sheets, leaving 2 −3 inches
between each cookie. Bake for 13 − 15 minutes or until lightly
browned around the edges. Remove from the cookie sheets and
cool on wire racks.

Here's what they're SUPPOSED to look like:
