I made some extra cookie dough for the freezer today. I pre-scooped them into cookies so they are ready to go. We sometimes have trouble with frozen cookie dough staying really gooey in the middle, so I tried flattening them a bit, to see if that helps them bake better. We’ll see if it works next time we have a cookie emergency!
If you ask Jon, he will tell you what an excellent football commentator I am. He will also tell you that I can snack like a champion. So we love Super Bowl day! Plus, we each have a B.S. in advertising so it really is a treat all around. What snacks are you making for the big game? I know I definitely need some chex mix, and those mini corn dogs, guacamole, and sweet potato tots look awfully tasty too!
I’ve been saving the seeds from our Halloween pumpkins in the fridge, and we decided to roast them up the other day. Then we couldn’t stop eating them!
We half used this recipe. I am sure they would have been great in salads, or trail mix or something fancy, but we ate them all just like this. Now off to make some pumpkin bread!
It is quite a shame that not all treats are easy to mail. I wish I knew how to send a pie in the mail. It would be the best feeling to know that someone is going to get your pie in the mail at any minute.
I needed a treat to send to all my wedding peeps, but it needed to not be melty, and to hold up for a couple days while it flies across the country. I decided on granola bars. Because they are like the universally eaten treat.
I used this recipe here. It was pretty easy. Basically you mix stuff together.
I would make these again any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Because people consume more granola on Sunday than other days. I would try making them with some dried fruit and coconut, or mini marshmallows and tiny chocolate chips. Or just tiny m&m’s mixed in. Or just plain.
It all started when we wanted to see a movie at Alamo. And then we looked up their new menu, which had a peanut butter banana cookie. And we thought: huh, how bout that? So I looked to see if I could find a recipe for peanut butter banana cookies. And now here we are.
These cookies are definitely chewy and soft. They have a little different taste to them (and we ran out of chocolate chips!), but if you are looking for something new and different, try them out!
We decided to toast up some pumpkin seeds the other day as a snack.
The first kind we made was sweet and spicy from this recipe here. We left out the extra sugar at the end, and just sprinkled them with a little salt, and scout’s honor, they tasted just like kettle corn. It was like pumpkin seed crack.
The second kind was just the classic: little oil, salt, and pepper. Simple goodness.
Naked seeds get some sugar or salt clothes.
Thanksgiving means more pumpkins, and that means more pumpkin seeds that will need to be eaten. Oh darn.
