this is how I always do chocolate covered strawberries!

2. My secret tip to how to make chocolate covered strawberries blew up this year. It’s so easy you will find yourself looking for things to cover in chocolate once you run out of strawberries!

Hands down the best oven fried chicken recipe. I make this for family dinner all the time and it turns out great.

6. Corned Beef is not just for St. Patrick’s Day (who knew). I’m still surprised at how popular my Crock Pot Corned Beef recipe has been. Don’t get me wrong it’s super tasty and wayyyyy easy but it’s been consistently pinned all through the Summer, Fall, and Winter!

My new favorite soup recipe. Crock Pot Lasagna Soup (freezable) - Rae Gun Ramblings Super easy Lasagna Soup recipe for the crock pot (freezable) - Rae Gun Ramblings #GameTimeGoodies #shop #cbias

The best of comfort food. Quick and easy buffalo macaroni and cheese recipe from Rae Gun Ramblings

13. Buffalo wings and macaroni and cheese are hands down two of my favorite foods so it’s no surprise that I had to combine them. And it looks like I’m not the only one who thought Buffalo Mac and Cheese was an EXCELLENT idea!

Dairy-free lactation cookies that the whole family will love. These are now our go to chocolate chip cookies - Rae Gun Ramblings

14. I’m obsessed with this Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. And the crazy part is that it was created as a lactation cookie recipe. Don’t worry it’s all natural stuff that help boost milk production (like oatmeal, you won’t magically start lactating). BUT if you know someone who would like a boost in that direction who is already nursing make up a batch! But really don’t be scared off my husband and whole family loves these and there is no unwanted milk production going on ;)

great recipe for how to make cheesecake factory's brown bread - Rae Gun Ramblings

15. Another oldie but goodie. My Copy Cat Cheesecake Factory Bread recipe. Bread is one of my favorite things to make and I worked hard to copy the infamous brown bread from the cheesecake factory and let me tell you these taste just like the original. So much so now that when I eat there I actually prefer the French Bread since I can have the “wheat” any time!

Love all of these that I've tried. Can't wait to try all these quick easy recipes.
