Are you looking for a summer treat and a way to get the family involved in the kitchen? I found it or I should say Christy found it, made it, and brought it to school to see what we thought and I loved this recipe. So here they are for you to try with the kids. They will love them! The recipe is right off the box of Nabisco Honey Grahams. It’s a healthy substitute for ice cream sandwiches since they are made with yogurt and fresh fruit. I used tart raspberries and bananas which really needed a sprinkle of sugar or a dab of honey to add some sweetness. Just to give you a heads up here, the end product is not going to be a nice creamy texture. It’s fruit and yogurt mixed by hand so it will be a little icy. Be sure to let them thaw a good 5 minutes before serving. Very refreshing!
This Cheesecake is almost a miracle. From the top to the bottom it’s all no-bake. It’s so easy that you can whip it up in the morning and serve it for dinner with very little effort. The traditional cheesecake is delicious, but can be labor intensive and then fooling with that water bath can be intimidating for some of us. Try this simple no-bake cheesecake and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results.
Every body loves muffins or cupcakes. To me they are one in the same. These muffins/cupcakes will knock your socks off. They have the best ingredients butter, sour cream, bananas and chocolate. You know there’s nothing wrong with a little chocolate in the morning. It does a girl good! All kidding aside these are great. To take away some of the guilt pair them with a big bowl of fresh fruit and Greek yogurt. That’s one great way to start your morning.
This is another of Katie Workman’s recipes. It’s super easy to put together and really turns out a moist and rich muffin. So next time you’re looking for something great to do with two bananas that are two hours from heading to the trash then this is what you need to cook up in you kitchen. You will make somebody happy.
School is now is session! Three days mimicked ten days. Schedule changes, reading the handbook, going over rules and regulations made for boredom. I did treat my classes Friday with these Fudgy Rocky Road Bars. They got rave reviews and some of my new students tried them out on their families and friends this weekend. That’s success! I will keep you posted about my classes, but so far so good.
Last night I tried this side dish that I have had bookmarked all summer from Katie Workman The M0m 100 Cookbook. It’s a great way to use the fresh corn that is so plentiful now. The dish is packed with flavor. I’m talking bacon, red pepper, shallots, spinach and corn. It will be a great addition to any entre, but you know what I think it would be perfect to stand alone. Just eat the whole bowlful with nothing else. Heaven.
I cannot think of many people who don’t just love tacos. I know that my high school students love them. They are quick to prepare and fun to play around with the toppings making them versatile for any picky palate. So here is a great seasoning to keep on hand because most everyone keeps ground meat in their freezer. So now you have dinner in a flash.
I cannot think of many meats that I like better than some tender messy ribs. You know the ones where the meat just falls off the bone. I’ll be the first to say that I have not had good luck with ribs until I watched this how-to video with Sarah Carey. I just love this girl. You can bet that I’m going use her expertise in my classroom this year. What a great resource for my students!! Anyway back to these ribs. They are fabulous!!! It’s really the cooking method that makes them so good. Add whatever rub and sauce that is your favorite. Personally I really liked the one here. I did think that the amount of salt was way too much so I reduced it by half. This is easy, easy! I mean anyone can do this!!! There is one step that cannot be eliminated and that is to remove the membrane. You will have the worst ribs ever if you fail to do this small step. Turn the ribs to the bony side. Take a knife and lift a small bit of the membrane. Holding the membrane with a piece of paper towel pull the membrane as if you were removing cellophane tape from the meat. You might get lucky and get it in one big piece, but that is not likely. With that one step and low heat you will have the most tender ribs ever!
