Cheesecake Bars - Oreo Cheesecake Bars!

Line a 8 x 8 glass dish, with parchment paper, where it hangs over on all sides.

On top of the dough, place 20 Oreo cookies in a single layer. 

Mix (2) 8oz  cream cheeses, 1/2 c sugar, 2 eggs, 1/2 t vanilla and a pinch of salt, and spread on top of cookies.

Cool and place in refrigerator overnight.  Lift out of pan and cut in small squares.  Drizzle with caramel!  SO Easy!!!  #divine #scrumptious    

 

Chicken - Oven Fried 

For Two People, I use, 4 boneless chicken tenders.  I buy the bag of tenders and keep frozen till I need them.  It's my go to!  :)

2/3 cups Bisquick, 1/2 t garlic salt, 1/2 t paprika.  Mix together in a ziplock bag.

In a flat bowl, mix 1 egg with a little milk (1 T).  Dip each chicken tender in the egg, and then put in the ziplock and shake it around.  Lay on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Melt 1 T butter and spoon over each piece.  It looks messy and not perfect.  You don't have to spread it around.  Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 15 minutes on one side, flip and bake for another 15 minutes!

Testimonials

She sold another one for me!! Full price! She is the best! Glenn Smith, Tyler, Texas
I had the previous experience of buying a home through Lorri Smith. I cannot say how wonderful she is. Then, she was great in selling my previous home. She is quick to take care of each concern. Her patience, efficiency, and support are totally outstanding. Will miss my contact with Lorri. Lorri Smith is the best in all the above areas! I marked all the above as excellent as it would have been, but my home was sold in less than a day above listing price. I had been in my home for 42 years and did not know what to expect. Lorri patiently took me through each step. I is important that my son is included and Lorri kept us both carefully informed. It took me over 6 months to find a new place. Lorri was great in showing me all the many places we saw. She was great in selling my home too, always giving very careful advice. I cannot express enough thanks to Lorri. Paula Alexander, Tyler, TX
