Southern Fried Chicken ~ Weekend Potluck #159

Happy Friday! I had some folks on Facebook ask what was this weekly "party thing" I do every Friday called Weekend Potluck. For those of you not familiar, Weekend Potluck is a weekly event every Friday where we showcase recipes from other food bloggers. Each week, food bloggers can come here and "link up" or share what they've been cooking/baking up all week. If you scroll all the way down, you'll see a bunch of little thumbnail photos of recipes. Those are the most recent shares happening right now! Then each week, we pick some of those recipes to be our featured recipes for the following week. So, it's a great way to discover some new food bloggers and grab some new and fresh internet recipes!
A note to bloggers who link up each week: please be sure you are linking back to our party from within your post. I scrolled through a ton of FABULOUS recipes from last week's potluck and none of them had link backs and it really bummed me out because I love featuring new bloggers! So please link back - you never know if you'll be next week's featured recipe!

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi, friends! It's Holly from Life in the Lofthouse bringing you some Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies. These cookies, wow they are always a hit! With the help of a box cake mix, you can have these ready in hardly any time at all. One more reason why I love using cake mixes in recipes. 
These cookies have a perfect strawberry flavor with lots of milk chocolate chips in every bite. Not only are they tasty, but really pretty. Great for parties and holidays! The best part about these delicious things is their soft and chewy texture. It gets me every time I eat one. Or five. ;)

Shoney's Strawberry Pie ~ Weekend Potluck #158

Well, we finally got our share of snow this winter. Just when I thought we would escape without much snow totals - BAM! We get walloped with over a foot of snow in a single day. I'm happy for all the kiddos. My son and his friends had a chance to make some honest-to-goodness snow cream. They have been sledding down our little hill for days now and it really has been the most fun for them. But for grown-ups, it's been a little more complicated. I have some friends who live on some pretty steep hilly areas and mountains and they have struggled to just get down to the main roads. Some of the towns around here are better than others when it comes to clearing the roads. I truly sympathize for our friends up north who have been dealing with this nonstop for weeks on end. Spring is coming! And it's weather like this that makes me appreciate those spring temperatures and beauty so much more!
Alright, let's get to the stars of today's show! For those of you not familiar, Weekend Potluck is a weekly event every Friday where we showcase recipes from other food bloggers. Each week, food bloggers can come here and "link up" or share what they've been cooking/baking up all week. If you scroll all the way down (if you're on a computer), you'll see a bunch of little thumbnail photos of recipes. Those are the most recent shares happening right now! If you are on a mobile device, you'll just need to click the underlined words at the bottom that say "An inlinkz link up". So all you have to do is click on any of the pictures in this post and it will take you right to the recipe. Got it? Alright, let's go!

Crock Pot Whole BBQ Chicken

Anyone completely over winter yet? I know many of our friends in the Northeast are screaming "Uncle!" already. There's only so much snow that should be acceptable this time of year and they have certainly hit their limit. So, in honor of warmer days to come, I thought I'd share a fantastically easy recipe for Crock Pot BBQ Chicken. You get all the flavor of that good ole summertime BBQ but you don't need to go outside and fire up a grill. Plus, this one cleans up in a flash too. Less dishes, less mess - count me in!

Super Creamy Mac & Cheese ~ Weekend Potluck #157

Happy Pre-Valentine's Day! Alright, what ya got planned. I just wanted to announce what my plans are. Now, I don't want y'all to get jealous or anything. But....I'm going to Monster Jam. I know, I know, it is every girl's dream to go watch big, stinky, LOUD monster trucks on Valentine's Day. I mean, I've waited my whole life to have a special evening like this. I can hardly contain myself! Did I mention that I speak sarcasm as a second language? 
I had told my son a few months ago that we would go so I gotta make good on my agreement with him. I just didn't know at the time that it was going to be on Valentine's Day. And no one needs to know this, but I don't care for big ole fancy evenings anyway. Give me a dinner I don't have to cook and I'm a happy gal. Okay, and maybe a margarita or a sangria. And a flower is always nice. Or a cupcake. Cupcakes are good. But I'll just keep letting them think this is a HUGE sacrifice on my part.
