Mardi Gras Polka Dot Bundt Cake

Another use for the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker.  This idea is so cool!  The possibilities are endless. 

You decide the flavors, I used an 18.25 oz. Pillsbury Dark Chocolate cake mix and a 10 oz. Paula Deen white cupcake mix (I found at the Dollar Store).  I found that the 10 oz. cupcake mix made the perfect amount of cake balls for the cake.  The amazing thing about this cake is that no two slices are the same.  The cake was very moist including the cake balls, they did not over cook even though they were completely cooked before going into the cake batter.

Parmesan Chicken Wings (Drummies)

I love these wings!  They are easy to make, and is finger lickin' g-o-o-o-od! Two tips I recommend in making these wings:
  1. Use Reynolds Non Stick Foil on your cookie sheet and  Regular foil will work, but this stuff is amazing, nothing sticks!
  2. Double the cheese mixture, put about half of the mixture in the bowl to start with and add more as needed, when finished store in your refrigerator until next time.
Serve them up at your next football party.

Tangy Bistro Sauce/Dip

A while back, I was wondering around at Cash & Carry (restaurant supply store) and stumbled upon a bottle of Grey Poupon Bistro Sauce.  It looked very tasty, but only available in a large bottle, so after reading the ingredients I decided I would make my own version.  Don't know if my version of this sauce/dip tastes anything like the Grey Poupon Bistro Sauce but I really like how my version turned out.  After quite a bit of experimenting, I couldn't get the spices right and then stumbled upon a bottle of Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning at our local WalMart store and determined that this spice blend would possibly be what the sauce needed.  This was the missing link to the sauce and the seasoning completed my experimentation.  I tried the sauce with garlic and onion powder but it wasn't the right taste so I resorted to using fresh.  Most of the ingredients for this sauce are probably already in your refrigerator.  The best way to describe this sauce is, like fast food secret sauce/fry sauce on steroids.  This dip is amazing with the Po-Jo potatoes (like the Shakey's Pizza Mojo potatoes) from one of my earlier blog post as well a french fries, onion rings, hamburgers, etc.   Hope you give it a try...
