Guilt Free Banana-licious Ice Cream

This is one of the coolest things I’ve come across. Maybe I’m the last person on the planet to try it but just in case I’m not I’ll share my “discovery” with you all. I like kitchen gadgets. I like shopping on the internet. That equals a lot of catalogs in the mail. I received one recently that had an appliance where you put in frozen bananas and they come out like soft serve ice cream. Yeah, sure they do. I wasn’t...

 

Cinnamon Raisin Braids

This recipe is a favorite of my granddaughter Keegan. Of course anything with bread, honey and cinnamon is a favorite of hers. My kind of girl! Keegan is also very fond of braiding since she learned how practicing on her Barbies so it was only a matter of time before braiding carried over into other things. I was making this dough one morning when Keegan was here with me helping in the kitchen. I was starting to roll out the dough and she asked if...

Stuffed Cinnamon Raisin Puffs

Have you ever heard of Mochi?  Don’t worry if you haven’t.  For years I passed it by at the grocery store never knowing or even seeing what it was.  Funny enough it was located right above where I would get my jar of pickles and yet it never caught my eye.  Then one day I saw a women grab a package of it and put it in her cart.  It was enough to spark my interest and when I finally took a look at what it was I was really surprised. Package...

 

Caramelized Banana Stuffed French Toast

My grandchildren Caleb and Keegan are my best Valentines. They fill my heart with joy and I am so grateful that I am able to be a part of their lives. This Valentine’s day I wanted to make a special treat for them and since breakfast is a favorite for both of them I made this ooey-gooey yummy french toast stuffed with caramelized bananas. This sweet treat goes beyond breakfast. It’s decadent enough to be served as a dessert too. If you...

 

Caramel Coated Rice Crispy Treats

One of my favorite things do to with the kids on each holiday is make a batch of Rice Crispy Treats and use cookie cutters to make fun shapes.  For this Valentine’s Day I decided to go a little more decadent and created this delicious caramel flavored treat.  I think I might like these even better than the original!  Whether you cut them into fun shapes or go with the standard square they are a fantastic treat to share with your Valentine. ~Sarah Ingredients: 1/2...

 

Raw Strawberry Chocolate Mini Tarts

Chocolate covered strawberries are so last year!  This year try a strawberry chocolate tart instead.  For one,thing you don’t have to bake or ‘cook’ anything!  Plus, this is a raw dessert and I don’t know about you but raw always makes things sound so super healthy which means when you accidentally eat a whole mini tart by yourself cause you needed to test to make sure it tasted good that you won’t have to feel so...

 

Orange Julius

I’ve read that during the Superbowl 325.5 million gallons of beer will be consumed by 151.6 million viewers. If my math is correct that is almost 2 gallons of beer per viewer. That doesn’t take into account that some viewers (like me) don’t even drink beer. Unbelievable! For any other non- beer drinkers out there or for those under age viewers here is a healthy take on a favorite drink found at many shopping malls across the country....

 

Single Serve Snack Cake

Quite a few years back there used to be this boxed snack cake mix that came with a plastic baking pan and a cake mix that you just had to add water to right in the baking pan, microwave and “beep, beep, beep” 2 minutes later you had an instant single serving of cake. I hate to say it but I loved that cake. When I think of it now I shudder thinking of all the chemically processed ingredients that must have been in that cake mix and I don’t...
