Wednesday, March 25, 2009 is my best friend :)

This post might be a little different that our previous ones but I wanted to share. :) At the insurance agency where I work, we have been cooking just about every day for the past several months because it tends to save everyone quite a bit of money as opposed to ordering in everyday like we had been doing previously. We all just take turns and it's been a great chance to try new recipes! My favorite source of recipes for any occasion is You can register at their site and you get new recipes emailed to you every day. Here are two that I've tried recently here at work. The first one is Rosemary Chicken in an Orange & Maple Syrup glaze. This chicken was amazing! You brown the chicken in a pan (after rubbing it with Rosemary, salt & pepper) with some olive oil and then add the sauce which is simply orange juice, white wine and maple syrup. I know the ingredients don't sound right together, but it is truly delicious and super easy!
And then, for those with a sweet tooth, we have Oreo and Nutter Butter Truffles. These take a little bit of time but are still pretty simple. You just grind up the cookies in a food processor and and dip them in melted almond bark. We dipped the oreos in vanilla almond bark and the nutter buters in chocolate almond bark and then drizzled the extra onto the other kind. These are sooo yummy but sooo sweet! You can't handle too many but they would be excellent for parties and such.
And yes, we made these at work. The only disadvantage we've found to how well we get to eat at work is that no one feels like cooking when they get home. lol.'s a different post, but I hope you enjoyed it. We are all doing great...We've had some volcanic excitement here this week with Mt. Redoubt, but so far, no ashfall has come our way. We will post again soon..I got some cute video of Ben the other day. Till then, I hope you all are doing wonderful! :)
