Not another food blog..

Okay, so I admit that some time is spent looking at food blogs and recipes (especially at my favorite site allrecipes.com but this isn't turning into a food blog. I do, on the other hand, feel a responsibility to share a recipe when I find one that is soo good and super easy! Here are two favorites from this week, both super easy, and super yummy! The Chicken Tortilla Soup tastes as good as the restaurants and is much healthier (and I threw it in before church on high for one hour and then on low for another three and the house smelled soo good when we came home.) The corn dog muffins are yummy and fun for kids (and adults!) and they were definitely a hit at the ward party! ENJOY! :)

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
"A quick, no-fuss version of chicken tortilla soup! All you do is put everything into the slow cooker, and turn it on. Then garnish with baked corn tortilla strips!"

2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
3. Lightly brush both sides of tortillas with oil. Cut tortillas into strips, then spread on a baking sheet.

Corn Dog Muffins
"A quick, easy way to recreate a fun, family favorite from the state fair."

2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk

This is for Thad. I tried emailing it a couple of times and have been unsuccessful at each attempt. He was interested in some information which is included as part of a comment at the following URL:
