Since I will be leaving again next week (I'm heading to California for a week to attend my good friend's graduation) this week will be filled with lots of posts. I'm going to try to post every day this week, so....it won't all be food though. I have lots and lots of party pictures I must share with you guys. But, it is up to you.
I thought I'd kick my one-a-day post week with a giveaway. Dawn at Ferguson Pottery has a pretty amazing store. I'm not your biggest pottery fan, but her work is beautiful! I am loving her bowls. I'd love to have this bowl too, but she graciously let me have this to give to one of you guys.

Sugar Ice-Cream Cookies

Good Sunday afternoon! Goodness, what a busy weekend. House work, workout, softball practice, taking our Mom out to dinner, shopping, more shopping for graduation party clothes, church....whew! And this week isn't going to be any less busy. I know I will survive.
I am so glad to know you all (most of you...can't please everyone) enjoy my blog just the way it is! Getting comments like that are encouraging....so thank you! I am going to see what I can come up with for some more breakfast, appetizer, and side dish recipes.
So, I thought a jumping shot would be pretty amazing of all 6 of us....little brother in brown polo shirt thought otherwise. See how in the 3rd picture from the top, he is about 4 inches off the ground but completely upright? Not to mention a interesting look. Don't worry, we still love you Joe.

This is a giveaway to thank you guys. To thank you for always leaving such nice comments. I love blogging but you guys truly make it funner. Even those of you who are readers but don't comment. Thank you readers. For reading my blog. Trying my recipes. For sending me emails and letting me know how much your family loved my recipes. Thank you!
So, I am giving away a copy of "Hello, Cupcake" to 1 of my readers. I've looked thru the book and there are some pretty neat ways to dress cupcakes up. The Panda Bears really caught my eye. I'd have a hard time eating those cuties. And the spaghetti cupcakes....whoa! Amazing!
To enter, tell me what you'd like to see more of on Priscilla Bakes. Less family pictures? More food recipes? More giveaways? Tell me in a comment and you'll be entered for this contest.
Deadline is Sunday at 3 PM CST.

Good Wednesday everyone!
My family and I love love eating at Noodles & Company. If you guys haven't ever tried their food you are seriously missing out. My sister and I love to order "Buttered Noodles". They are noodles fried in butter, mixed with seasonings, and topped with Parmesan Chicken and Mozzarella Cheese. That and a Coke for dinner....that is real living.
I wanted to try to see if I could come up with something similar to Noodles' version. Let me say I got pretty close! For the breading I mixed up different seasonings, Parmesan Cheese, and salt and pepper. Dipped it then in egg and fried until done. The breaded chicken alone was very good. The family loved this, it was great to see my brother and sister saying..."mmm this is pretty good".
So, here we are. These 5 (not including our parents) are the ones that devour all of the food you see on my blog. Those 3 boys are the ones who I have to thank. The 2 girls are the ones I have to thank for keeping me somewhat girly. And my youngest brother. Joe. He is perfectly fine. He wasn't being tortured. He doesn't like to smile for the camera. Thus the uncovincing grins.

Hope you all enjoy a Tuesday afternoon! Not sure if you guys are familiar with a restaurant called Noodles...we love that place. I will see you next with a dish I created from that place that I get every time I go there! I'll also see you with some new family pictures we had taken, getting the boys to take pictures is a big accomplishement!

We had some very ripe bananas on the counter that needed to be used up so I took my banana recipe and tweaked it. Instead of adding a chocolate cake mix I added a sugar cookie mix and some milk. Yum, the sugar cookie mix adds a wonderful flavor. This makes lots of batter so I would suggest not pouring it all into the 13x9 inch pan. Maybe make some cupcakes with the rest. I made the mistake of using all the batter in the pan and it takes forever to bake and turns overcooked slighty.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. vanilla
3 medium bananas, ripe and smashed
5 tbsp. sour cream
1 (17.5 oz) sugar cookie mix
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 in pan (and a muffin pan). Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs and mix well. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt together and add to creamed mixture. Add vanilla, bananas, sour cream, and cookie mix. Mix very well. Pour into greased baking pan and muffin tin. Bake for 45 minutes or until ready.
This is the picture we used for the invitations....maybe it is just me but I do not really care for this picture of myself. But since the world doesn't revolve around me (what?!) I didn't say anything. And knowing myself, I always critque pictures of people way too much...so ignore me.
