This idea was given to me by a fellow Zaarian, Parker's Mom. She wasn't sure of quantities, so I fiddled around with the quantities until I got a combination that seemed good to me. Posted with her permission. :) This stuff really is as delicious as she said! This is such a colorful snack and would be pretty for Easter or a baby shower. Recipe an easily be doubled or tripled. Listed servings are 2-3 pieces each, but will vary depending on size of clusters. Cook time listed is for cooling.
This is the perfect "recipe" for making your own homemade crayons out of the broken crayons lying around your house. This is a fun project to do with your kids! This would also make a fun birthday party project or gift giving idea for young ones! Note: the amount of crayons depends on the type of tin/mold used. ***There is no paraffin needed for this recipe - just broken, chopped up crayons (paraffin was put in as the ingredients per Zaar's system)***
This takes only minutes to make, it's a great addition to top off your almost finished store-bought syrup to increase the quantity although I must say it's actually good enough to use on it's own just as a syrup, this will thicken in up the fridge --- you will love this!
These are great to take to work, kids lunch boxes, for a potluck or a bake sale, you can slice them and stick them in the freezer then wrap tightly in foil, put a frozen wrapped bar into your kid's lunchboxes, they will thaw out by noon, they are just as good if not better than the store-bought! ---This also works well using blueberry or other flavors of jams, for easy spreading heat the jam in the microwave until softened :)
A quintessential childhood food. This is a copycat recipe of the traditional Zwieback Toast that we grew up on, gave to our own kids, and may even be giving to our grandkids now. My daughter has an allergy to cow's milk, so I substitute the milk for half water and half coconut milk and it works out perfectly!! Note: It takes two days to make these cookies. The first day, you make a raised loaf (just like you do when making yeast bread). The baked loaf sits to cool and set during the night. The next day, the loaf is cut into slices and put in the oven to dry. A lot more work than buying them off the store shelf, but your toddler will love you for it -- I promise!! Time to make DOES NOT include kneading time and raising time - just the time it takes to mix the ingredients together and baking time. This recipe is from kingarthurflour.com.
I like this cocoa for many reasons, only one of which is because it has a delightfully creamy texture. It makes an extra-large batch of cocoa mix, great for gift-giving or large groups. Running the powdered milk through the blender powders it, decreasing the odds that it will float to the top of the mix. The number of servings are approximate, as it will depend on how much mix you use per serving. I estimated at 2-tablespoons per serving. Adjust for personal taste.
As the title suggests this is an easy remedy for those all round ills that seem to strike when we least need them! This has worked very well for our family this year and I hope it will for you. :) You can also add the juice of a lemon and even the skin chopped as well if you like for added vit C. I do sometimes :)
My brother and I cook up this quick and easy recipe every Friday night when my mom is out with her friends/family. It's yummy yummy and has the potential to evolve into much more...but we like it just the way it is. I hope you enjoy!!
When you're out of buttermilk, and you need it in a pinch for a recipe, this "Joy of Cooking" suggestion will help you out. I've used it numerous times over the years, and although the real thing is always preferable, this substitution works just fine.
