Berry Sour Cream Muffins

School's out and that means my teenage son is home all day, rummaging through the cabinets and fridge, grumbling about being hungry.   I like to keep some sweet and savory things on hand to cover both bases.    Muffins are a go-to.   They come together so quickly, and I can make them when I have time and freeze them.

I pinned these muffins a while back from Taste of Home, and since strawberries are in season in NH right now, that's what I used for the fruit.  I'll make another batch in a few weeks with blueberries.   I love that the recipe calls for tossing the fruit in the flour, that's a great way to keep all the berries from sinking to the bottom.   I also like to sprinkle the tops of muffins with raw sugar, it gives them a nice crunch.

No grumbling from the son about these.   Next time I'll do half the batch as minis, they'll be great for on the go snacks and way better than the store bought ones.   Thank you Linda G for sharing your recipe!

There have been so many fantastic recipes shared this week, my to-make list has at least doubled!  Links to their contributions for today are are the bottom of the post.  Don't forget to enter for your chance to win a $25 gift basket from Cabot!  Thanks again to From Gate to Plate and Cooking with Carlee for hosting :)

                           Berry Sour Cream Muffins

  4 cups all-purpose flour
  2 cups sugar
  1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  1 teaspoon baking soda
  1 teaspoon salt
  3 cups fresh or frozen raspberries or blueberries (I used strawberries)
  4 large eggs -- lightly beaten
  2 cups Cabot sour cream -- (16 ounces)
  1 cup canola oil
  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  Raw sugar for sprinkling on tops of muffins before baking.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add berries and toss gently. Combine the eggs, sour cream, oil and vanilla; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full.  Sprinkle the tops with raw sugar, if desired. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: about 2 dozen.

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

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast Sandwich

I'm one of those people that preparedness makes all of the difference.  If I have easy snack and meal choices ready to go, then I can resist the call of the drive through.  I've been enjoying baked eggs for a while now, usually with sauteed peppers and onion, on top of a whole grain English muffin.  When Dunkin Donuts came out with their new Power Breakfast Sandwich I immediately thought, I can make that at home! I started with the same base baked eggs recipe that I've been using.  I do normally use whole eggs, but for this version to keep it true to the Dunkin Donuts one, I just used the whites.  I sauteed diced bell pepper and onion until they were soft, then let them cool.  I chopped up some baby spinach, discarding the stems.  I had lots of eggs on hand, so I separated them myself, but you could definitely use the store bought egg whites. I beat the egg whites, added a bit of salt and pepper, the veggies, and then poured them into a sprayed muffin top pan .  Bake
