Yummmmy Dip!

I haven't shared any recipes in a year and figured it was time to start back up. My friend, Jasmin, gave me this recipe today and I headed to the store to get everything to make it! It sounded easy, although I'm not a fan of onions.

What you need:
3 pkgs cream cheese
1/2 cup mayo
2 cups Parmesan cheese

I melted the cream cheese in the microwave and started chopping away on my onion. I added everything together and stirred it real well. Next, I placed in the oven (400 degrees) until bubbly (about 15 mins or so).
She Recommended eating with wheat thins and I couldnt agree more! This was wondeful...and sooo easy!

I took a picture after I started chowing down! I had to hide the hole I made! Lol

Donut Muffins

My mom got this recipe from a coworker and kept telling me how good and easy it was. Of course I'm always up for easy, so I finally tried it out Sunday afternoon. It may have been a bad of this morning, we only had 1 left!!!!
What you need:
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 cup All Purpose Flour

Topping (these ingredients will be used in the 2nd step)
1/4 Cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 Degrees and Grease muffin tins. (The recipe calls for the mini muffin tins, but I used the regular sized and they worked great)
Mix Sugar, butter and nutmeg in a bowl. Stir in milk. Mix in baking powder and flour until all combined and spoon in tin until halfway full. Bake until tops are lightly golden brown, approx 15-20 mins.
While the muffins are baking..........
Place melted butter in a bowl and combine the sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl. Remove the muffins from the tin when finished and dip each muffin in the butter and then roll in the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place on wax paper to cool and whaala!!! These are really good warm!!!!! It made about 8 regular sized muffins.

*Next time I will use my regular size muffin tin, but not put as much in each tin. Also, i'll prob cut back on the nutmeg some and use 1/2 tsp instead of 3/4 tsp.

Baked Beans

We had a cookout last night and Josh cooked 2 boston butts. Of course you have to have baked beans with bbq! (along with yummy potato salad and cole slaw for some)
I got the baked bean recipe from my mom a few years ago. I have always cooked it in the oven up until recently. When we first moved in the house, our stove wasn't in yet, and we had some people over for a cookout. I made them in the crockpot and they were just as good!

Here is what you need to make Baked Beans:

1 Large Onion, cut up
1 Med. Green Pepper, cut up
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
2 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
about 10 slices of bacon, cut up
2 (31 oz) cans pork and beans
1/4 cup Molasses

Mix all ingredients together and bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 2 hours.
Or it takes about 2-4 hours on low in a crockpot.

I had every intention of taking some pictures as I was making these. Of course I was running behind and had to rush to get everything ready and totally forgot about pictures until everyone was fixing their plates! Oh well!!!
