These snickerdoodle cookies are so delicious, and they have the best texture. They are so fast to put together too! I actually got it from an old recipe that my Great Grandma had clipped out of a newspaper. Grandma always knows best!
As hard as I tried I could not find a recipe for Vanilla Pudding mix that I could use as a base for other puddings or to add to other recipe's that I wanted to make, yet didn't want to buy a bunch of packages of pudding for. After 5 (yes I said 5) attempts I came up with one that was creamy enough, and tasty enough to call good. This can be made ahead...then just add a few ingredients and you have pudding. Great for gifting and camping...Higher in Calories yet low in sodium and potassium.*** NOTE*** for those missing the flavor of eggs or having problems with this setting up properly ... I found I liked it better when I added two egg yolks slightly beaten and put some of the hot mix in whipped it and added to the pudding mix as it cooked. You are right it adds to the flavor.
Kids love this recipe for an after school snack or for breakfast. I also serve it as a dessert in a bowl over a small scoop of vanilla ice cream with the chips on the edges. This is a light and healthy recipe that I found on recipe-a-day.com
Cute little easter eggs with a hint of chocolate and peanut butter that kids (and adults) love. These eggs are so easy, since they are basically Rice Krispie Cake. These eggs can be individually wraped so they can be hidden with commercial wrapped chocolate easter eggs if you are doing an egg hunt for your kids.
Don't you just love that kettle cooked popcorn available at county fairs? It's sweet; it's salty; it's deliciously crunchy. It's usually pretty expensive too! This is a great, SUPER EASY recipe to make it yourself - just like you enjoy at the fair - with only 3 ingredients! I ran across a similar recipe years ago online and tweaked it a bit... in other words, perfected it. I hope you enjoy!
The original version of this recipe came from "The Northern Exposure Cookbook" by Ellis Weiner. This is a real family-style kid-pleasing recipes that I often bring to potlucks and family gatherings. It is like a pot of macaroni & cheese but with the added surpise of the hotdog slices. It is easy prepare, is inexpensive, and doubles nicely. I have even prepared the ingredients the night before and baked it the next day with success (just allow the ingredients to come to room temperature before baking or add a little extra cooking time). You may use reduced fat ingredients if you have health concerns, but it will not be quite as rich. That being said, I do just about always use "light" hotdogs with no real sacrifice to taste. Prep time includes cooking the pasta.
