Sometimes you just need a crunchy, crispy potato chip to solve all your problems. What could be better than that, you may ask? Well, I would argue that homemade crispy chips are more satisfying than store-bought chips. If you are in agreement, then boy do I have a recipe for you!
There has been an ongoing battle in my household for a few years now. I must tell you, this post is hotly contested in my household. Samuel and I are at a strong disagreement over what “Indian tacos” are actually called. I have grown up calling and hearing these fried breads Indian tacos. Samuel, on the other hand, has grown up knowing these as Navajo tacos. I have never, ever heard Indian tacos called Navajo tacos. So we continually bicker over what these should actually be called. I’ve heard others just refer to them as fry bread. No matter the name, I’ve come up with an easy and delicious way to make them.
Each month I have made a dessert featuring peanut butter. I’ve posted about Easy Peanut Butter Fudge, No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, and 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies. Far be it for me to stand in the way of you all receiving another peanut butter dessert. This recipe is yet another peanut butter cookie. However, it is far different from the normal cookie. It contains a wonderful ingredient which adds intrigue. If you are looking for a delicious peanut butter cookie with a little hidden pizzazz, you have come to the right place.
I love snacks and snacking. However, since I have started to eat healthier and cut back on excessive eating, snacking has really had to be limited. When I do snack, the snacks have to be lower in calorie but filling at the same time. This brings me to my post today. I love crunchy, salty snacks. So, what better way to ensure snacks are low in calorie than make them yourself?
Along with Italian food, I love Mexican food. I am also a huge fan of casseroles. In fact, I’ve made a few casseroles on here already. A couple of those casseroles happen to be Mexican inspired. So, I guess you could say I enjoy making and eating Mexican casseroles. Anyway, this post includes a delicious Mexican casserole. Oh, and it includes Doritos. Doritos are always delicious.
I recently purchased some cinnamon sugar pita crisps to satisfy my sweet and crunchy cravings. Sometimes I just want a small snack for a little pick-me-up in the afternoon. While the crisps were delicious, I figured I could make my own snack that would be healthier and cheaper. So, I set out trying to create a snack that would be similar to the pita crisps. I believe I found a perfect combination of sweet and crunchy with this easy to make snack. It only takes four ingredients and just a few minutes!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Instead of posting a recipe related to something romantic or something Valentine-y, I promised you a post on breadsticks. Now, this may not seem like a post fit for Valentine’s Day. However, these breadsticks are the Crock Pot Pot Pie Soup’s soul mate. These breadsticks are the soup’s one true love. And I love these breadsticks. What could be better than a post based on a love between foods, two foods I happen to love together?
One of the best parts of eating at Mexican restaurants is the free chips and salsa. I will never be able to turn down chips and salsa. However, the chips at the restaurants aren’t all that great for you. They are often fried. So, I wanted to implement my oven fried foods idea on the tortilla chip. I have to tell you, these were better than the restaurant tortilla chips and way better than the bagged chips at the store.
This is the first post of the week featuring some delicious food I made for Super Bowl Sunday. Who says Super Bowl food has to be fattening, fried, or full of calories? Not me. My football snacks are low in calorie and full of flavor. Not only are these snacks and foods perfect for football, they are great any time of the year.
Happy February everyone! Also, happy Super Bowl Sunday! I will be posting some recipes this week from our Super Bowl snackingpalooza, but for now, I wanted to post something different. Have you ever seen recipes that are “copycat” ones, such as: copycat Red Lobster cheddar biscuits, Twinkies, Olive Garden bread sticks, etc.? Well this one post is similar to a copycat post. It’s just slightly different, but the flavors are the exact same. No bake Twix cookies. These taste like a Twix bar, but better.
