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....

 

Gluten and Grain Free Pizza

Did you know that the Super Bowl is one of the Top 5 biggest pizza selling days of the year?!  Pizza Hut alone will sell over 2 million pizzas this Sunday.  Eating healthy doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a good pizza and boy oh boy is this one amazing pizza!  Aside from the bonus of being gluten free AND grain free this pizza crust is so flavorful and has a great crunch to it.  I may or may not have eaten half of the crust by itself!...

 

California Dip

California dip or sometimes called French onion dip is a party staple but mixing a packet of dehydrated onion soup mix into a carton of sour cream just doesn’t work for me! This dip is so much better tasting and can be used in so many more ways than just a dip for chips or crackers. It’s great as a topping on baked potatoes, a sauce for sautéed or roasted veggies, in place of ketchup on fries, a topping on burgers or as a dressing on...

 

Sweet Potato Beer Fries with Roasted Tomato Ketchup

So I gotta be honest, I finally came clean to my husband and the ‘regular’ potatoes I used in my Sweet Potato Quinoa Burgers.  At first he didn’t believe me that sweet potatoes could be white but a quick google search ended that belief rather quickly.  Now that he’s come to the realization that he likes sweet potatoes I decided to make it up to him and show him all the delicious ways you can enjoy this delectable potato....

 

Herbed Vegetable and Flax Crackers

My goal with just about everything I make is to try and pack as many vegetables into every single bite that I can. Sometimes I am successful and sometimes not so much. Herbed Vegetable and Flax Crackers are one of my favorite successes. Crispy, healthy ingredients that are full of nutrition and flavor. These tasty crackers are an easy to carry snack, a crunchy topping on a salad, or a perfect accompaniment to soup. Kristy Ingredients: 2 cups ground...

 

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...
