Oreo Brownies

This recipe for Oreo Brownies is my all-time favorite brownies recipe!

Oreo Brownies
This fudgy brownie recipe turns out a nice, sturdy brownie- perfect for swirling in chunks of candy or cookies.  I seriously have used this base brownie recipe (originally from Ina Garten) for all of my mix-in brownies.  They’re perfectly fudgy and sturdy.  The recipe makes a LOT of brownies, so you can easily make a pan of these and split it in half for two events!  AND you can steal a few extra for freezing into little zip baggies for your kid’s lunches.

Slow Cooker Cider Ham

This recipe turns out so tender and delicious:  Slow Cooker Ham

Slow Cooker Ham

I started this website in 2006.  So is it super strange that this is the very first ham recipe I’ve ever shared on RecipeGirl?  I couldn’t believe it myself… but I searched all over and didn’t spot any other ham recipes at all.  I’m sorry for that.  I love ham- I really do!  But I usually just get the no-fuss, already spiraled sort at the market and call it a day!  This ham recipe is absolutely the best choice ever to share for a first ham recipe.  It’s EASY.  It’s so incredibly tender.  And it’s delicious.  It’s perfect to make for a weeknight dinner, a special Sunday dinner, or a holiday occasion too.  Everyone is going to love how this one turns out.

Roasted Garlic Kale Hummus

Here’s a classic hummus recipe with the superfood kale blended in:  Roasted Garlic Kale Hummus

Kale Hummus

I realize that some of you might be frightened of this not-so-well-known green:  kale.  I must admit… I had to learn to like it.  If you try it in a salad– like just making a salad with kale and eating it, you probably won’t like it.  Kale is one of those greens that you have to work with a bit to make it taste really good.  It can have a bitter taste and tough texture, so for salads… you need to pair it with the right flavors, and you need massage the dressing into the salad a little to let it marinate for a while.  If you make your salad right, kale is delicious.  In this recipe, kale is blended into a classic hummus recipe to make a delicious appetizer dip.  And since kale is the ultimate superfood packed with antioxidants and vitamins, that makes this appetizer recipe extra good for you!

Classic Chicken Soup

Here is a recipe everyone should have in their kitchen:  Classic Chicken Soup

classic chicken soup

My kiddo woke up with a sore throat on Saturday morning.  “It hurts a lot, Mom.  But I’m still playing in my lacrosse game today!!”

“Okay,” I said.  “But you’ll play the game and then come home and rest for the remainder of the weekend.”

He did just that.  Scored 3 goals and assisted a few (on a rainy, chilly day).  They won the game, and my lacrosse-obsessed son happily got his fill of playing.  He’s very passionate about lacrosse, so it’s tough for me to take that away… even when the Mother in me says he should sit-it-out and get better instead.  We chilled-out for the rest of the weekend, and he’s feeling a bit better with the exception of a pesky cold.  Sunday was a day to make my magical, healing, homemade, classic chicken soup.  I love this recipe because it makes use of the entire chicken carcass in the soup, which adds an incredible amount of flavor (as it should) to chicken soup.

Chocolate Chip Blondies
