Watermelon and Rollkuchen are the perfect picnic food since for one, the fruit has a drippy nature best eaten outdoors, and a large rind which needs to be disposed of. Secondly, all you need is a platter for the melon wedges and a large basket for the fritters—no other elaborate picnic equipment is needed. As strange as the combination may seem, it is in the genes of most Mennonites. It's as simple as that.
I got this recipe from Taste Of Home magazine. I'm digging out my apple recipes, since it's getting to be apple season here. These are really yummy little pastries! Be sure and hide some for yourself, because they will disappear quickly. Prep time includes refrigeration time.
I "borrowed" this recipe from the kitchen at my college because I fell in love with these bars. They are so much better than store-bought, and you can add or subtract ingredients as you wish. They make a perfect on-the-go snack; a much healthier alternative to chips or cookies, especially for kids (Great for lunch boxes!)
From Kraft. I can't wait to make them for the kids as a special treat! A perfect Valentine surprise. Cook time is cooling time.
(I loved the idea the first reviewer had and wanted to add it to the recipe itself, "Substituting crisped cereal for the pecans would make it special for the little ones who are allergic to nuts" Thanks ohgal for such a great suggestion!)
I got this from a friend who is following the Feingold diet. We are trying to cut out artificial flavoring and coloring. This lets my kids eat jello, one of their favorites, without the added coloring. Cook time is refrigeration time.
All who like coffee and Baileys will love this different treat. Don't drink coffee and Baileys, EAT it. Your guests will be surprised, if you serve Coffee & Baileys not in a cup or glass, but on a spoon or plate. Fancy looking and easy to make.
These are not your ordinary peanut butter cups. The filling is creamy, smooth and oh so good. I was looking for a recipe close to what I could get at Rocky Mountain Chocolate before they changed the recipe and ruined them. While making buckeyes I got the inspiration to try. I find buckeyes too sweet and they don't have as big a peanut butter flavor as I was craving.
This is what I came up with. Close in my opinion but then again it's been nearly 7 years since I had one from Rocky Mountain Chocolate. But these sure do fill the void. These are meant to be rich and decadent. The use of silicon cups makes it much easier to coat with chocolate than paper would be. When you peel back the silicon, you're left with a perfect beautiful rippled cup. It leaves you thinking "did I really make these".
I experimented with the chocolate. I preferred milk chocolate to semi sweet chocolate chips. I used Belgian fondue chocolate (comes in wafers), it melted easier and smoother than chocolate chips. The chips melted in your hands fast and was a little more messy to eat. I also preferred regular peanut butter to light. It gave me the consistency I desired. But use what you like. Makes 12 but you might want to share one with a friend, or maybe not!
I made the most wonderful Baklava on ethnic night in gourmet class. I hadn't made it in a while and started craving it when I saw this little shortcut in a magazine at the doctor's office. (The best part about the wait is scanning the magazine rack!) Also, if you want to get even more fancy and creative, top with a dollop of Nutella or chocolate fudge, or even an chocolate mint bar.
