Recipe Roundup!

This week I’ve got two dinners + two desserts for you to try. I’m trying to slow down my baking until I can round up some more friends to take them… or at least switch over to baked goods that can be shipped! I never thought it would be so hard to get baked desserts out of the house, but husby + I just don’t eat them often enough to keep up with it all.

 

Chicken Gyros via Annie’s Eats ~ instead of stuffing into a pita, I used naan bread as a substitute. Tastes amazing, but be prepared to start 24 hours before you want to eat to prepare the tzatziki sauce.

 

Coconut Macaroon Nutella Nests via Two Peas & Their Pod

 

Mini Whiskey Oatmeal Cream Pies via Food Plus Words ~ I used Cabin Fever, a maple flavored whiskey in this recipe. They taste exactly like the pre-packaged oatmeal cream pies with a kick of booze!

 

Spiced Pork Chops via Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetite with Sweet Potato Italian Fries via Martha Stewart Recipes

 

Enjoy!

Monday Must-Haves! Gifts for Gags

I’d say that I’m more of a gag gift giver, than a meaningful, thoughtful gift giver. I tend to give out gag gifts a lot + they are great for your husband, best friend, sibling, parents, cousins, co-workers… you name it. Everyone likes a good laugh, so why not make people smile on birthdays/Christmas/anniversaries/etc?

 

Pocket Shots via PocketShot.net ~ I think I’ll be contributing these to our annual “Bad Santa” gift exchange at work this year. Who doesn’t need a shot of tequila after a stressful work day?

 

Emergency Clown Nose via Perpetual Kid ~ Not only should you carry one in your purse, but you should get them for your friends too. You never know when you are going to need to make someone laugh or run away scared.

 

Edible Dried Zombie Skin via Think Geek ~ With all the people obsessed with zombies these days, anyone that you give this gift to will be the envy of everyone. It is also vegan, all natural + gluten free! It is good for everyone!

 

Mustachifier Pacifier via Perpetual Kid ~ Kids are always saying they wish they were older… add instant age to your newborn and they’ll be having a mid-life crisis in no time.

 

Human Organ Lunch Tote via Perpetual Kid ~ Keeps your co-workers from stealing your lunch out of the fridge, right?

 

Gag gifts are a lot of fun. Sometimes they get used + sometimes they just go in a junk drawer + sometimes they get re-gifted {share the fun}! Where do you shop for gifts?
