Oreo Cheesecake

I just made THIS oreo cheesecake recipe. YUM. I don't know how she made those darling, ridiculously perfect mini cheesecakes that are pictured, but I just made mine in a pie tin. It is definitely heaping.

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

I make bbq chicken sandwiches a lot (just cook chicken in the crockpot with bbq sauce on top). But they've always just been "just ok" to me. I saw this recipe and it sounded SO GOOD. I made it yesterday and it did not disappoint. The red onion and cilantro on top really made it so yummy (I know some might disagree). It would probably be good with any BBQ sauce, but I did use the Trader Joe's brand as she suggests (yay for no high fructose corn syrup like Sweet Baby Ray's and most other bbq sauces). I can't wait to eat the leftovers!

HERE is the recipe. This is Amber (Jensen) Doxey's cooking blog.

Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies

Amy & I made these last night. They were pretty good with some vanilla ice cream...I'd have to say I'm enjoying them even more good! This picture is from Betty Crocker's website.
