Sometimes my mornings are a bit hectic. So, I don’t always have time to sit down and eat a normal, hot breakfast. A lot of the time I eat breakfast at my front desk. Because of this, I like to have easy to eat items in the morning. It’s a bonus if the items are portable so I can eat them on the go if need be. One such breakfast food is the beloved muffin. I have made Skinny Blueberry Muffins back in January, which totally fit my breakfast needs. So, I decided to make another light muffin to help me when time is short in the mornings.
Confession time. I love green beans. Now this may not seem like a confession. However, I must admit I love canned green beans. You know, those soggy, lifeless green beans? Yeah, I love those. I know, they aren’t even really flavorful. So, I wanted to explore the green bean more. I mean, I love canned green beans, so fresh ones had to be even better right? Right. Fresh green beans are 100% more delicious than the canned ones. I know, I know. You can say, “I told you so,” now.
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 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.
Recently a posted about how much I love chocolate desserts. However, Samuel generally prefers less-sweet desserts with fruit in them. Sounds easy right? Wrong. He’s pretty picky, whether he admits it or not. So, when I decided to make a delicious, apple crisp for dessert, I was surprised when Samuel said he wasn’t really a crisp fan. Well, I was determined to change his mind by making a perfect crisp.
Sometimes life can be complicated. You know what makes life uncomplicated? Easy recipes! I see no need to over-complicate recipes. I am a definite fan of simple, easy to follow recipes. And I know, some recipes just seem too easy. For example, this post highlights a classic cookie with minimal ingredients. How can you possibly make a delicious cookie with only 3 ingredients? There must be a trick. This has to be a trap, right? There is no need to make recipes harder than they need to be.
I am all about easy, healthy recipes that anyone can duplicate. I absolutely love recipes that seem too easy to be true but aren’t. This post is exactly that. Who ever heard of bread that doesn’t require any sort of machine to make? Also, there aren’t any weird ingredients needed in this recipe. There are just standard bread ingredients needed in this recipe. I promise you, this bread is insanely easy to make, and it is more delicious than anything you can buy in a store.
