Coconut Macaroon Pie- Happy Pi{e} Day!

We're pretty boring when it comes to pie.  Looking at my 12 posts on the subject, they are mostly variations of our favorites- Apple, blueberry & chocolate.   For Pi{e} Day, I decided that I wanted to get out of the box a bit.    Still working my way through all my sticky notes making to-try recipes in Taste of Home's 100 Family Meals, and one of those recipes was Coconut Macaroon Pie.

Simple to make, starting with a store bought pie crust.   I am not a great crust maker, which is why I think my pie selection is so limited.    The only sub I made was vanilla for the almond extract, due to  allergies.   I have beautiful glass pie dishes which really allow you to see if your bottom crust is soggy or not.   The down side is that it does take the pie a bit longer to cook- I covered it with foil at the 35 minute mark because it was browning very quickly.   Mine took about 50 mins.

This is so good.   It tastes like the inside of a Mounds bar.  It would be great with a drizzle of dark chocolate.    It cuts beautifully with a serrated pie server.   This goes straight into the Family Favorites file, and maybe next time I'll even attempt a crust from scratch!

Thank you so much to The Redhead Baker for hosting, and be sure to check out all the other awesome pie recipes at the end of this post!

    Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

    On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!

    Southern Fried Chicken Strips

      Sometimes I defrost something with a specific meal in mind, and then the weather completely makes me crave something else.   We had a nice sunny warm stretch of weather here in New Hampshire over the weekend.   It was easy to ignore my menu plan of a heavy, creamy chicken and pasta dish for some crispy, golden brown fried chicken. I chose this recipe , and made very minor changes- first, I used Penzey's Roasted Garlic instead of regular garlic powder.   Second, I held the salt out of the flour mixture, I prefer to salt fried foods as they come out of the oil instead.   I also omitted the parmesan cheese, it didn't need it. I don't fry often, so I'm always glad when the recipe turns out to be worth it.  Using tenderloins made for a quick fry, and the crunchy outside stayed put when you cut them with a fork.    There was just the right amount of seasoning for the guys, though I admit I'd have like to have swapped out the paprika for some cayenne pepper.   I l

    Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

    I've been making this recipe for over 5 years now.  My guys saw an advertisement from a pizza chain for a Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie and they asked if I could make one. Since I didn't have an ovenproof skillet or pizza pan at the time, I searched the web for one I could do in a cake pan.    I found this recipe on That's So Yummy and it was perfect since I only had 1 egg. This is a great fix for a chocolate chip cookie craving without making a huge batch, scooping dough and then babysitting cookie sheets! Most often I make it with semisweet chocolate chips, but sometimes I switch it up and and use some of the speciality ones that I can't seem to resist buying, like Sea Salt Caramel. Though the directions say to cool it completely, we like ours warm, topped with a scoop of ice cream, sometimes a drizzle of hot fudge sauce.   Yield: 8 Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Print Recipe With Image Without Image Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake ingredients
