My best friend Bri had this brilliant idea to make chicken with a coke can shoved up its nether regions. She saw this recipe awhile back, and we decided to make it with rosemary potatoes. Delicious.

Charlie and I went grocery shopping the other day (good thing, because we're practically snowed in) and we bought a spaghetti squash for $1.99/lb. I don't know if that's a good deal, but it looked so good. I'm a fan of squash that's roasted with brown sugar and butter. That's probably because that's the way my mom makes it. Well, Charlie's mom makes it by topping it with spaghetti sauce. This one's for her.

I love deviled eggs. In my family at Easter, everyone gets a hard-boiled dyed egg with their name on it. When it's egg cracking time, you turn to the person next to you and bang your egg against theirs. The person whose egg didn't crack moves on to the next person in the line. This continues until only one person remains with an uncracked egg. Whoever that person was, won all of the eggs. Nobody ever wanted to be that person, considering there's usually tons of hard-boiled eggs to take home. Except me. I wanted to be the winner so that my mom could make hard-boiled eggs and I could eat them all.
I made a bunch of appetizers for the Superbowl. I'm kind of bad at this blogging thing in that I should of made them ahead of time and then posted them for all you guys out there in cyber world to actually make on the Superbowl. Oh well. We live and we learn.

Whenever I go to Burger King, which is very rarely, I get a Rodeo Burger. It's essentially a cheeseburger, but with an onion ring and barbecue sauce on top. It's fantastic! I decided to make my at-home version, using recipes I made awhile back.
Let's talk about lasagna and the fact that it looks like chopped up body parts all smashed together in a pan. I wouldn't eat lasagna for a really long time after I had my aunt's and then got the flu or something directly afterwards. Isn't it weird how you can be completely repulsed by a food just because you were sick after eating it? I can't eat Caesar salad's, either. Anyways. Lasagna.

That's right, you read correctly. These are not only cupcakes, but chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes. Yeah, you're only going to be able to eat half, but that means you'll have more opportunities to eat these delicious things!
I took a blogging hiatus to focus on my five (yes, five!) English classes this semester. However, that definitely doesn't mean I stopped cooking. I plan to post a ton of stuff tonight, starting with this baked penne. Most baked penne is made with tomato sauce, but I decided to switch things up and use pesto instead.
