Cabin Fever

Stuck at home in over 2 feet of snow and ice ... why not do some baking? Fellow blogger friends, Jen and Jodee, emailed me with some yummy recipes to try (per my request). Here's what I've cooked up - all 3 of my boys loved these recipes!! They were simple and easy, just the way I like 'em! Thanks, girls!!

Jen's Pizza Dip

8 oz cream cheese

1/2 cup sour cream

1 tsp dried oregano

1/8 tsp garlic powder

1/2 jar pizza sauce

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese


(Or any meat of choice - I used canadian bacon)

Mix these all together and put into a 9 inch pie plate. Cover with 1/2 jar of pizza sauce (you can use more if you like it more saucy). Next cut up pepperoni and sprinkle over the sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, then sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and bake for 5 more minutes, or until cheese melts.

I served this delicious dip (a new family favorite!) with Pilsbury Breadsticks ... pop 'em out of the tube, unroll them, and bake them for 10 - 13 minutes. I sprinkled some garlic powder over the dough before baking ... mmmm!!

Jodee's Funky Monkey Banana Bread

Jodee emailed me her recipe card ... so cute!!

Mine took a little longer to bake because I added an extra half cup of banana, but it was so moist and made the house smell incredible!

Glad you loved the Monkey Bread! For someone who is snowed in, sure does have alot of food just lying around waiting to be cooked! I would of had to gone to the store, 2 or 3 times for the ingredients! Merry Christmas to you and your Family!!! Hope Santa was nice to Maddox and Sean!

I am so glad that you liked the dip. Seeing your post makes me want some right now. I wonder if I have the ingredients?
