S’mores Bake

There is something about a s’more that puts me in a good mood!  I’m not sure if it’s the chocolate or the crispy marshmallows, but either way, they make me happy!  Unfortunately, I’m not around a campfire very often, so I rarely get the opportunity to actually make a s’more. I found this recipe on Pinterest that allows you to make a s’more in the oven, so I had to try it out for Thanksgiving.  I liked it so much that I’m planning on making it again for my potluck on Wednesday.

Graham crackers
Cookie Dough


Line the pan with graham crackers


Cover with cookie dough, (I bought premade cookie dough)  Cook this for about 10 minutes at 350.

Put chocolate on top of the cookie/graham crackers

Cover with marshmallows

Cook the whole thing in the oven at 350 until the marshmallows are browned a little – or to taste.

Warm Bean Dip

I think if you work around a lot of women, a pot luck is bound to happen.  We were at training yesterday and the group decided that if we did a pot luck today and worked through lunch, we can get out early.  I jumped all over that because we are supposed to be doing four day work weeks and today is supposed to be a day off anyway. Plus, I’m a morning person and by the end of the day I’m tired.  The only issue I had with it is that I don’t live very close to a grocery store, so last minute pot lucks are not easy for me. I decided that I would make something that WOULD be easy for me, so I chose this bean dip recipe that I saw on Pinterest.  The original recipe was found at the life at a loft house blog.  Since I didn’t get home until late yesterday, I got up early this morning to make my bean dip.  I hope it’s still hot by the time people want to eat it, but I kind of doubt it will be.

1 8 ounce package of softened cream cheese
1 cup of sour cream
1 pkg. of taco seasoning
2 16 ounce cans of refried beans
4 cups of shredded monterrey jack/cheddar cheese

pre heat the oven to 350.

Mix the sour cream and cream cheese

 Add in the two cans of bean dip and mix it really well

Add in the taco seasoning and mix it up

Put the bean mixture in a 9X13 baking pan with cooking spray.

Sprinkle cheese on top and then put in the oven (at 350 degrees) for 25 – 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and/or a little brown.

Serve with chips!
