Orange Chicken

Made some orange chicken in the crockpot today...it didn't taste so well. I was going to put the link for it on here, but I already  deleted it off my pinterest board. There were mixed reviews, so we had a 50/50 chance. Thankfully this time I don't think the poor meal was on my part! I have to agree with many of the reviews that it was too citrus-y. I still ate it (and Corey nibbled at it a little), but next time I think I'll try this recipe since it's very different than the one I tried today: http://www.examiner.com/frugal-living-in-buffalo/orange-chicken-the-crockpot

To make up for the lame dinner, I did what I do better...baked! I also needed to make something for tomorrow  night when we hang out with friends. I made one of Corey's favorites per his request: chocolate chip oreo cookies. Here is the recipe: http://www.lovintheoven.com/2010/04/chocolate-chip-oreo-cookies-mailing.html. Thankfully these turned out fabulously, and they are really yummy. The Reed family loves them as well.

For Osbeck Easter on Saturday I'll be bringing this with different fruit: http://pinterest.com/pin/234046511854402735/ (I know, so difficult). And for Reed Easter on Sunday I'm making: http://www.thecurvycarrot.com/2011/04/07/birds-nests/. Those bird nests look sooo delicious!

I really don't mind baking. I've had more experience with that, and I have a major sweet tooth. I'm thinking Corey really should invest in a pinterest account, so he can pick up some of the cooking (since he usually does it or we tag team anyway). Do you think I could convince him? Probably not ;)

Hope everyone has a wonderful time celebrating the POWER of our resurrected Lord this weekend...I know we will!
