I made this for the football game last Sunday and there was NOTHING left. It really is awesome. I’ve never had crack – but this appetizer was amazing! :) (Hint – Sometimes when a recipe calls for bacon, I buy it from the salad bar. Then I don’t have to cook it and make a mess and smell up the house. The bonus is that since the salad bar cost is based on weight and bacon is really light the amount I used for this bread only cost about 50 cents!) (And the sourdough was on manager special too! SWEEET!)
This was SOOO good. I used fresh corn from the market and it was perfect! (I used half of the milk that the recipe called for and added water because I don’t like super creamy soups.) Ideal for fall. I made some fresh bread to go with it and my husband who doesn’t consider soup a meal loved it! (and bacon from the salad bar makes another appearance!)
This was great. So easy and delicious. The kids and Kevin ate it right up! I didn’t have the dressing that the recipe called for so I kind of made my own with rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and Sriracha. It was really good. I also didn’t have a bag of cole slaw mix, but I shredded up a red cabbage and some carrots. It was perfect.
A chewy NO BAKE granola bar without a strange list of ingredients. The coconut oil makes them firm and chewy since its solid at room temperature. The kids love them and I love giving them as a treat. So easy to grab on the go and filling from the almond butter and oats. I added some flax seeds too.
These little cookies are great. They weren’t very sweet which I loved. A fantastic little chocolatey treat. But I think the kids wished they would be sweeter. Maybe my bananas weren’t extra ripe enough? They were really good, and were eaten up by everyone……but maybe next time I would add a dash of honey or maple syrup or sugar? Maybe I should name them Chocolate Monkey Bites – then they would devour them! They really liked helping me make them.
We love these things. I’ve been making variations of them for years. I like to keep them on hand in the fridge. It’s such a great easy breakfast and you can add anything you want! They are great alone or wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla and they are the perfect shape for toasted English muffins.
And last but not least – the infamous chocolate cups! My sister and I made these for my nephew’s birthday a few months ago. They were a huge hit and actually way easier than I thought they would be. You really just melt chocolate and dip a balloon in it and then put them in the freezer. You have to carefully pop the balloons and pull them out, but they really did come right out. My sister bought milk chocolate because she and the kids prefer it. We think that dark or bittersweet would hold up better because the cups got a little melty once we started eating them. But they do look SO very cool and fancy!
So, there you have it.
I love finding new recipes on Pinterest!
My sister is on a crazy, fall, pumpkin, nesting kick right now and has tried these pumpkin recipes that she found there too! She made me a pumpkin spice latte and pumpkin cream cheese on graham crackers yesterday. DELICIOUS!
