My Apologies...and a special guest contributor!

I realized today that I have not posted in an indecently long while and I hope you'll forgive me. About a month ago we found a new house to live in and ever since then I've been frantically throwing everything I own into boxes. I even packed all my pyrex, corningware, and dishes in boxes with no padding. Luckily nothing broke and it is all safe and cozy in my new cutie-pie kitchen.

I promise that once I'm settled in the posts will be coming too fast for you to process them! Recently, while visiting in Virginia Beach with my mom (who had just watched Julie and Julia) I got to make Beuf Bourgignon. I am not even going to bother spell checking that so no criticisms :) It was, as it is touted, too delicious for words and also one of the most time-consuming meals I've spent a Saturday afternoon on. About two days later my mom called up and said she'd come up with an easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy version of it that tasted JUST AS GOOD! And hence I shall blog it as soon as I get the recipe written out all perty like. I am also going to be testing a few other recipes I discovered on Food Network and I will let you know how they turn out.

As my post title indicates, I have a special guest Smart Cook-ie today! She already gave us the secret recipe to make Bisquick, and now Veronica will be giving us a chef-tested, hungry man approved recipe that is sure to bring the stray dogs barking at your door for some good eats! Enjoy all...and I promise I will bombard you with posts in about a week! (I have copied and pasted Veronica's message/recipe exactly as I received it below:)

So as promised here is a recipe for dinner using bisquick... this is from Betty Crocker Bisquick cookbook and I love it because Marc loves it and it is (as Barney Stinson would say) "Possimpible" or (as Betty Crocker would say) "Impossibly Easy"... now how can you turn down a recipe like that?
