I also love classic dishes with a slight twist to them. So, I wanted to share a very classic dish, spaghetti with red sauce, but made in a slightly different way.

So, I feel like I owe an apology. I’ve said some things I now regret. Back in January I said some really hurtful things. Now I need to apologize, and I hope you will forgive me, oatmeal raisin cookie. On my Pumpkin, Chocolate, & Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies post, I said some mean things about the oatmeal raisin cookie. Now I feel bad. I called the oatmeal raisin cookie boring and less successful than other cookies. I hope oatmeal raisin will forgive me.

Macaroni and cheese. I am willing to bet that most people recognize those words together. Actually, those are two of my favorite things combined together into one delicious creation. Do you know what makes macaroni and cheese even better? Placing it into a muffin pan and baking it so it is in a portable, cup form. Oh, and adding a buttery, crunchy crust to it takes it over the edge.

Baked Corn Tortilla Chips | jollycrumbs.colm

One of the best parts of eating at Mexican restaurants is the free chips and salsa. I will never be able to turn down chips and salsa. However, the chips at the restaurants aren’t all that great for you. They are often fried. So, I wanted to implement my oven fried foods idea on the tortilla chip. I have to tell you, these were better than the restaurant tortilla chips and way better than the bagged chips at the store.

If you have followed my blog, you know I love fried foods. However, I don’t like the way they make me feel. I’m not a fan of biting into food and grease shoots out of it. Disgusting. So, I’ve been working on baking “fried” food in the oven. Why fry food when you can easily bake it with the same, if not better, results? Every oven fried food I’ve made has come out very delicious, and this recipe is no exception.

Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Well, I’m at it again. I get these wild hankerings for snack foods, particularly those which are really unhealthy. This hankering happened to be for fried cheese. It’s hard to get more unhealthy than fried cheese. Yet it is so deliciously melty, cheesy, and crispy. I decided to give my baked snack food addiction another go with some baked mozzarella sticks.
