mmm cupcakes

These are Snickerdoodle cupcakes from the dessert cookbook "desserts that have killed better men than me" by Jeremy Jackson. I don't normally like sweets but have a soft spot for snickerdoodle cookies, so I couldn't pass up trying to make these.

quick and easy meal

Both of my kids loved this (I opted NOT to tell them that there was salad dressing in the recipe - neither of them like it) and it took no time at all to make!

Chicken Caesar Pasta

Chicken Caesar Pasta

8 ounces dried pasta (your choice of shape)
1 cup diced, cooked chicken (seasoned to taste)
1 cup or more shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup creamy Caesar salad dressing
salt and pepper to taste

Cook and drain pasta according to package directions and return to the pasta to the pot.

To the pasta, add chicken, 1 cup of the Parmesan cheese, the salad dressing, salt and pepper; toss to combine.

Serve warm. Sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese (optional).
