Blog Recipes

This weekend I decided it was time to try a couple recipes I found in blogland. When I first saw the recipe for cake balls on Ashley's blog I knew I had to try them. My love (obsession) for cake and icing were my driving force. And when I saw them Friday on Kelly's blog I knew I better get after it. I decided to make milk chocolate cake with butter cream icing and white almond bark! DELICIOUS!

They looked like meatballs before they were dipped.

For dinner last night I wanted to make something easy so I decided to try a recipe I saw on Sunni's blog. Well actually she had gotten the recipe from Annalee's blog. These are BBQ cups and they are really yummy and oh so easy!

I made some cheese dip for our side dish and it was great!

Josh added some mustard and ketchup to his cups. If you can't tell he likes condiments!

Over all both blog recipes were great! I sent the leftovers home with Josh to share with my parents and they also liked them! Can't wait to make more cake balls next weekend!

Those meat cupcakes look DELICIOUS! I'm always looking for fun recipes to try on the weekends. I always feel like I need to throw me and Guy and mini-party on Sunday nights after church and have something special (besides ordering a pizza...)--these will be perfect!
