Baked Garlic Sweet Potatoes

“I see recipes calling for one clove of garlic. One clove of garlic is not enough for any recipe unless it’s a recipe for ‘How to cook one clove of garlic’ – even in this case, use two.”  Unknown

Amen! To me, a recipe can never call for enough garlic, so when it was chosen for the theme for this month's Baking Bloggers, I was in.  We are all big garlic fans, we love it in everything from garlic bread to chicken to corn on the cob.  But there's just something even more amazing about it when you bake or roast it in the oven!

I'm still hitting the local farms as much as I can, and right now one of my favorite things to pick up are sweet potatoes.  I love them done in the oven, so I was excited to run across this recipe from Taste of Home.  I couldn't get fresh rosemary, so I used dried. If you're hesitant about the whole cloves of garlic, you can definitely mince it.

Delicious, and guaranteed to keep away the vampires :)  Thank you so much to Michelle B. for sharing her recipe.   Be sure to go and check out the other garlic dishes being shared by our host Sue from Palatable Pastime, and the other #BakingBloggers today by clicking the links below!

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
