Copycat recipes seem to be gaining popularity among people. I have featured one on my blog a few months ago, No Bake Twix Cookies. This was one of my most successful and delicious recipes yet. Not to mention, these cookies definitely tasted like Twix bars, which was the whole point of a copycat recipe. So, I wanted to create another copycat recipe and share it with you all.
I enjoy dabbling with different recipes in my kitchen. Over the last few months of my blogging experience, I’ve had a lot of fun trying new things. One of the foods I’ve enjoyed focusing recipes around is tofu. Granted, I’ve only posted one other recipe with tofu in it, Chocolate Silken Mousse. This was one of the first recipes I ever posted on my blog. In the spirit of that recipe, I made a new recipe involving tofu and chocolate.
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.
I love sweet breads. I’m not talking about the meat sweet breads, but actual breads that are sweet. I just felt I needed to clarify this. Anyway, I have made two sweet breads before on this blog. I made a Banana Bread and Pumpkin Bread. Both of these breads were a hit. I wanted to add another sweet bread to this collection. You can never have too many breads that are perfect for breakfast and dessert.
Easy, cheap meals are very important in my life. Sometimes I can make the more involved recipes. Other times I don’t have longer than to throw something in the oven or into a skillet. So, I like to have a variety of recipes that fit different situations and occasions. Once again I channeled my love for brinner into this recipe. However, this made delicious leftovers for breakfast, and it can easily be made quickly in the mornings.
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!
So, I feel like I owe an apology. I’ve said some things I now regret. Back in January I said some really hurtful things. Now I need to apologize, and I hope you will forgive me, oatmeal raisin cookie. On my Pumpkin, Chocolate, & Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies post, I said some mean things about the oatmeal raisin cookie. Now I feel bad. I called the oatmeal raisin cookie boring and less successful than other cookies. I hope oatmeal raisin will forgive me.
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.
Lately I have been exploring different ingredients in my baking. I started to use Truvia Baking Blend in place of sugar and Splenda. I really, really love this switch to Truvia. I then started to look into different swaps with ingredients. I have been swapping apple sauce in place of oil in quite a few of my recipes. Now, I am starting to swap out butter and oil for Greek yogurt. I have to say, so far I am impressed. I made this successful swap in my Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies, and those were delicious. So I wanted to give you another yummy recipe featuring Greek yogurt.
