I have a lot of cooking blogs in my Google Reader and I always star the recipes that sound good. I dug through them yesterday and found one that had intrigued me from Meet Me in the Kitchen.- Prosciutto, Fontina, Spinach, and Chicken Roll-ups.
These were pretty easy and we really liked them. I substituted fresh mozzarella for the fontina cheese, and added my own little twist of mint. (Read: the only toothpicks I had were mint flavored and I didn't think the flavor would transfer as much as it did but it still ended up okay.)
Here's how they were supposed to look:

Here are mine while they were cooking in chicken broth:
If I did it again I'd try to make them a tad crispier by cooking them for longer before adding the broth. But overall these were definitely tasty, even with the little mint fiasco.
For dessert I consulted another favorite blog of mine, Bakerella, which has yet to fail me. This is the third recipe of hers that I've attempted so far, so I can also recommend the cake pops and brownie candy cups.
