If you follow me on Facebook, you may remember that I mentioned last week that I had a great idea for a new “-tini” while doing the laundry.  Not sure how and why some of these crazy recipe ideas come into my head!  And not sure how and why I got into this strange cocktail and -tini kick lately!  I must have been thinking about my trip to the south to Atlanta this past weekend (more on that soon!).  I had a banana pudding mix in the cupboard and some Pinnacle Whipped Vodka and Banana Vodka and the Banana Puddintini was born!  … [read more]

Crunchy Chicken Stuffed Waffle Pops & Maple Dijon Dip

As you may remember, I recently went to the Blogher Food Conference in Atlanta. When I got home a lot of people asked me if I went to certain restaurants, museums, tourist attractions, etc. I thought I did a lot while I was there but apparently missed a lot!  Geez, I really need to get back to Atlanta (looking at flights now…)! Someone asked me if I had chicken and waffles while I was there. Nope, no chicken and waffles! Darn, darn, DARN! Apparently Gladys Knight’s restaurant is the place to go, but never been there, so I can’t say (I think we drove by one of them, but not sure?).  Anyways, I’m all for fried chicken and waffles, but kind of hard to get the chicken and waffle in one bite isn’t it???  Next thing I knew, I was reminiscing about living in Iowa and going to the Iowa State Fair where you can find just about anything served on a “stick” (why my brain jumped from Atlanta to Iowa, I have no idea!).  Suddenly my Crunchy Chicken Stuffed Waffle Pops were born! Chicken and waffles all in one bite! These are adorable and ohhhhhh so yummy!!!
