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!
Just in time for Halloween, I thought I would share a sweet recipe. Even if you have more than enough candy this year, I think you’ll love this recipe. Continue reading
Following my candy-making tradition at Christmas, I decided I wanted to make some candies for Easter. I haven’t attempted making Easter candy before, but really how hard could it be? Answer: really not that difficult at all. I stuck to making easy candy treats that could be easily made for any occasion. So, I present you with candy number one- the Oreo truffle.
Recently we have had some warm days around here. Warm days mean a warm kitchen. A warm kitchen means I don’t typically want to bake because it’s going to get too hot. So, to remedy this situation I wanted to experiment more with “no bake” recipes. I have a couple no bake recipes sprinkled throughout my blog, but they are cookies. This time, I wanted to make a no bake cake.
Some recipes are so easy to make, you may wonder why you never have before. I’ve posted a few recipes on here that only require a handful of ingredients. I never even thought about making some of these recipes until I stumbled upon them. This post features another easy recipe. This one contains a few ingredients, most of which you probably have in your pantry. However, it requires only three steps and a crock pot. I’m not lying; only three steps separate you from a delicious side dish!
Since I starting blogging, I have branched out and tried many new things I never thought I would. The real turn of events is I have liked nearly all of the foods I was sure I would hate. Weird how that works. Please hold the “I told you so’s” until after this blog is finished. Anyway, one of the foods I once hated but now love is cauliflower. I have a few recipes on here featuring this versatile vegetable (Crock Pot Cheesy Buffalo Cauliflower, Creamy Cauliflower Soup, and Cauliflower Buffalo Wings). However, none of these cauliflower recipes are as easy as the one that follows. If you love mashed potatoes, you are in for an amazing treat.
It has been a long time since I’ve had a Rice Krispies Treat. Some people might not be aware that those aren’t vegetarian friendly. Sadly they contain marshmallows, which contain gelatin which isn’t vegetarian. This makes me sad. It was a childhood favorite I can no longer enjoy due to its ingredients list. I have clearly been recently pining over the thought of a soft, sweet, chewy Rice Krispies Treat. It dawned on me that perhaps I could make my own Rice Krispies Treats by using marshmallow’s delicious cousin marshmallow crème.
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!
I love surprises. I slightly love surprising people more than being surprised. So, for breakfast this past weekend I wanted to surprise Samuel with something he loves: strawberry shortcake. Now, I eat a lot of sweet goodies for breakfast, but I can’t say I’ve had strawberry shortcake that early in my day. I wanted to think of a way to combine Samuel’s favorite dessert with something acceptable for breakfast. Prepare yourselves because this one is keeper.
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.
