Recipes from the Web

Today I'm using an old adage that I learned when I was a teacher in China, "swipe with pride." It really is something teachers use all the time; if you want good ideas, look to others who have had success! I love trying new recipes, and here are some great ones that I have found around the web. I've either just tried these or plan to try them in the next couple of weeks.
No Bake Honey Granola Bites from A Whisk and a Prayer
(the pic is from there too!)
I tried these for breakfast this past weekend. I used the rice krispies that the original recipe called for. They got a thumbs up from the whole fam. I'll definitely try them again. They are great because with both oatmeal and peanut butter, I feel like everyone is getting the nutrition they need (albeit in a very sweet breakfast).
Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins from 1 Sentence Diary
I changed these into muffins and added a 1/2 cup more blueberries. I think they made the best blueberry muffins that I've tried lately--they were very moist and very tasty!
Blueberry Zucchini Bread from Seasons of My Heart
I can't wait to try this one! It has two of my favorite things--hidden veggies and blueberries!
Homemade Whole Wheat Crackers from Kitchen Stewardship
(the pic is from there too!)
These are on the snack list for this week. I love whole wheat and they actually look very do-able! I wouldn't have pictured myself making my own crackers, but everyone in the family loves crackers, and I rarely buy the store-bought kind, so why not?
Homemade Graham Crackers from Mama Hall
I got really excited when I found these. You can make your own graham crackers? Wow!
Seven Ways to Use Sausage
See, I do collect recipes for actual meals, too! I've been saving this because I like the way all of these recipes are listed right there together. When you have extra sausage, here's what to do with it!
Ramen Salad from Annie's Home
I've had this salad at several other people's homes and always liked it (and it got a remark from the hubby too). I need to collect the supplies for it the next time I'm at the grocery store.
Pasole from 11th Heaven's Homemaking Haven
With chick peas and hominy, this sounds yummy! I love the fact that the recipe calls for all canned items. This is another recipe I'll collect all the ingredients for at the grocery store.
Oatmeal Jam Bars from Ordinary Inspirations
Yum. Can I just say? Yum! These are made from a cake mix, oatmeal, and any flavor of jam. I truly can't wait to try them!
And lest you think we're only having snacks and goodies this week, here's my (rough) plan for the week:
Monday--shrimp salad and green salad with left over broccoli cheddar muffins
Tuesday--barbecued chicken legs, green salad, some kind of pasta
Wednesday--church picnic
Thursday--grits casserole and green beans
