Cookbook Recipe
Spinakopita
I got this from a friend of mine, who dated a Greek man. She said it was the most fantastic appetizer ever...and I am going to have to agree with her.

Cookbook Recipe
Greek Cheese Triangles
I had these way back when I was in sixth grade...a boy brought them in as part of a geography project. They're delicious!

Cookbook Recipe
Sweet Tea
My mom used to make this for me all the time when I was a kid. If I was sick, this was the tea she'd give me. It never failed to make me feel better!!

Cookbook Recipe
Strawberry Milkshake
This also came from a bottle of Philosophy Body Wash! It's so weird that such yummy stuff can come off of a bottle of body wash!!!

Cookbook Recipe
Double-Rich Hot Cocoa
I got this from a bottle of Philosophy Double Rich Hot Cocoa Body Wash! I tried it on the first cold day of the season, and I swear, I have never had a better cup of hot cocoa!! :)

Cookbook Recipe
Baklava II
I have yet to find a dessert I like better than baklava. I practically lived on this while I was pregnant!

Cookbook Recipe
Pretzel Candies
I got this from a girl on TheNest.com last year when I was a very hungry pregnant woman! They are super easy to make, and we like to make them on movie night. But I suggest not to make a lot at one time, because the chocolate will harden before you get to the last one!!

Cookbook Recipe
Taco Pie
I got this recipe from one of my best friends. She made it for dinner, and it's fabulous!

Cookbook Recipe
Dirt Pie
I read this on TheNest.com and tried it. My 13-year-old sister, as well as my 10- and 11-year-old cousins LOVED IT!!

Cookbook Recipe
Giada's Chocolate Hazelnut Ravioli
I saw these during my Food Network kick while I was pregnant. I tried them, and they are my new "famous party dessert".

Cookbook Recipe
Paula Deen's Banana Split Brownie Pizza (slightly tweaked)
I saw this on Paula's "Gone Bananas" episode, and had to make it. My mom and I tweaked it a little bit, but it still came out great!!!

Cookbook Recipe
Margarita Dip
As much as I love the lime flavor of margaritas, I don't care much for alcohol. After much tweaking, I was able to concoct a delicious alcohol-free clone of my favorite tropical drink! This is a recipe that gives you the perfect margarita flavor, while staying friendly to the family!

Cookbook Recipe
Cheesy Chili Dip
My mom used to make this for every party our family ever had. It brings me back to the block parties we had when I lived in Chicago. I hope it can become a hit at your family gatherings too!

Cookbook Recipe
Baked Banana French Toast for Two
I devised this recipe one rainy weekend when I first moved in with my now-husband. He was helping a friend move and I really had a taste for French toast. I'm pretty sure this recipe is the reason he married me!

Cookbook Recipe
Magic Cookie Bars
I had never heard of Magic Cookie Bars until I saw a boxed version from Eagle Brand. I tried them and fell in love, but realized that I could easily make my own for less money and get more bars! There are so many different ways these can be done, which is really the best part of the recipe!

Cookbook Recipe
DIY Salsa
My ex-stepmother-in-law was from Mexico, and this was a recipe that she shared with my husband and me as part of her and my father-in-law's wedding gift to us!

Cookbook Recipe
Turkey BLT Rollups
I've made these for years for game days! They started as veggie rollups, but then I added turkey and bacon to appease my anti-vegetarian family!

Cookbook Recipe
Mexican Dip
A girl I worked with made this for a potluck, and it was delicious! She gave me the recipe, but I tweaked it a little bit by adding the cilantro! You can use any heat level of salsa you'd like, and the best tortilla chips I've found to go with this dish are El Milagro brand!

Cookbook Recipe
Bacon Crescents
My mom tried these out of a cookbook years ago for a Christmas appetizer party, and they were an immediate hit! What isn't to love - it has bacon, cream cheese, and crescent rolls!!

Cookbook Recipe
Tater Skins
I tried to clone the potato skins we ordered at Friday's one night, but only had Velveeta on hand. My husband said he actually liked my way better!

Cookbook Recipe
Ultimate 7-Layer Dip
My husband volunteered me to make a layered dip for one of his work functions, so I had to throw something together. Most of the 7-layer dips I had in the past were good, but were missing something, so I added some taco seasoning to the beans.

Cookbook Recipe
Garlic Chili Dip
I am a fan of chili cheese dip, and this dip is a touch above the traditional cheese and chili dip; it goes great with tortilla chips or on top of a thick, juicy burger!

Cookbook Recipe
Waldorf Salad
I had never tried this salad, until I had it at a fundraiser event in 2008. I searched and tweaked recipe after recipe, until I developed a very accurate clone of the salad I had that one Sunday!

Cookbook Recipe
Triple Chocolate Delight
When I was pregnant, I craved all things chocolate. One night, I had such a hankering, but nothing sounded good. Brownies did not sound appealing, and neither did ice cream with hot fudge. Until my pregnant brain decided that those things together would be divine! I was up until 1 a.m. baking and eating!

Cookbook Recipe
Fruit Skewers and Chocolate Hazelnut Sauce
Although I love fruit, sometimes we need something sweet to dip it in!

Cookbook Recipe
Chocolate-Covered Pretzels
I started making these for friends and family for Christmas gifts because money was so short. They feel more personal than gift cards or cash, and they are really versatile!

Cookbook Recipe
Brownies with Dulce de Leche Dip
My husband's grandmother used to make these brownies for the family gatherings, before she developed macular degeneration. She showed my husband how to make these and we later added the dulce de leche dip later on - it makes a fantastic dipping sauce!!

Cookbook Recipe
Better-Than-Anything Cake

Cookbook Recipe
Hawaiian Cake
This is a take on better-than-anything cake, but with a Hawaiian twist!

Cookbook Recipe
Pineapple Fluff Pie

Cookbook Recipe
Greenwich Apples
I got this recipe from a WWE cookbook, and when I made it for my grandma when I was about 14, she was so pleased with it! It became my favorite thing to make for her until she passed away.

Cookbook Recipe
Lemonade Three Ways
My mom made lemonade using this classic recipe for me when I was a kid! The first cup of water should be HOT, which will help dissolve the sugar faster.

Cookbook Recipe
Wild Berry Iced Tea

Cookbook Recipe
White Cocoa

Cookbook Recipe
Snow Day Cocoa

Cookbook Recipe
Virgin Pina Colada
Although I don't drink alcohol, I am all about mocktails!

Cookbook Recipe
Virgin Bellini

Cookbook Recipe
Virgin Mojito
I love the way mojitos smell, but I don't like alcohol, so I wanted to come up with a recipe that would give me the mint-lime taste without the alcohol. This did the trick perfectly!

Cookbook Recipe
Virgin Mai Tai

Cookbook Recipe
Kabobs Galore!
These are different kid-friendly recipes for dippable kabobs; some are desserts, some are main-dish, some are breakfast!

Cookbook Recipe
Pop Art Banana Splits

Cookbook Recipe
White Bean and Sausage Rigatoni

Cookbook Recipe
BBQ Sloppy Joes
This is a fun twist on the usual sloppy joe sandwiches! They are great served on Kaiser buns.

Spunky Monkey Snack Mix

Cookbook Recipe
Cereal Snack Mix
I have eaten a lot of snack mixes in my day, and I have always found that store-bought mixes always had too much of one thing and way too little of others. With these mixes, you can add your own quantities of your favorite ingredients!
