Monster Pretzel Rods Recipe

Minion-Pretzels-monster-pretzels-1

I think everyone I know loves pretzels. They are what my kids ask for in the grocery store and what my friends ask for when we have parties. They are apparently the perfect snack while doing anything at all. Who knew? Salt lovers like me. I originally thought this recipe would be for Minions Pretzel Rods since I already have a recipe for Minions Pretzel Bark and Minions Fun Dip but I decided they looked like monsters instead. So here is a cute and easy Monster Pretzel Rods Recipe for your next party. Halloween is coming up (yes it totally is!) and I … [Read more...]

Meatless Monday- Pesto and Pea Pasta Salad Recipe

pesto-pea-pasta-salad

Summer is paradoxically the worst season for me to cook. You’d think that the abundance of fresh vegetables and herbs would prove to be inspiring, but seriously, y’all. It’s too flipping hot. I exist on cereal, smoothies, and home-rolled avocado sushi with the occasional salad or PB&J sandwich thrown in. Nothing real exciting there- I like it because it’s dead simple and doesn’t really involve cooking; but the flip side is that it’s probably unbearably boring for me to blog about. Seriously I have eaten avocado rolls and smoothies like every day … [Read more...]

Minions Fun Dip Recipe #Minions

minion-dip-1

This is probably the cutest little dip recipe you could find for a party. I wish we could have done it for the Minions party we did last week with my son and his little friends. I think the recipe is super easy and something the kids could help with. Anything with Funfetti cake mix or sprinkles is going to be a blast and going over awesome with kids. I have a great Rainbow Cookie Recipe that uses sprinkles and my kids love it. My kids love the Minions movie and they want all the little characters especially Kevin. They adore Kevin. Even my 13 year … [Read more...]

Sweet Chili Ranch Pulled Chicken Recipe #FavRanchFlav

sweet-chili-ranch-chicken-recipe

This post is brought to you by DataRank & Hidden Valley Ranch. #FavRanchFlav It's summer!!! Yay! And nothing says summer like a cookout especially a 4th of July cookout. My family usually does a huge get together. I am surprised our grills don't groan at the weight of that much meat. I like to personify our possessions apparently. I know that my grandmother cooks all day and that is something I want to keep doing for my family long after we lose her (she is going to live till 150!!!). I decided to try out a recipe today for my immediate … [Read more...]

Meatless Monday- Stovetop Pizza! No Baking Required!

stovetop pizza, meatless monday, vegan,

I love a meal that can be made in just one or two steps, that dirties a minimum of dishes, and that everyone in the family will LOVE. I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting ways to cheat on my meal prep; something that will take something I know is good and make it just that much easier. So when I started seeing 'Ovenless Pizzas' floating around on the internet, well that really got my attention. And it turns out that they're pretty yummy, reaaaaaaly easy to cook, and you can make them any old way you choose and please your own … [Read more...]

Breakfast for Dinner – Pumpkin French Toast Casserole with Raspberry Syrup #MeatlessMonday

image

Sometimes the best dinner isn't dinner at all. It's breakfast. We have a long tradition at my house of breaking out the waffle iron, or the blender for smoothies, or throwing together a tofu scramble instead of something a little more traditionally dinner-like. Breakfast foods are the best foods, and as breakfast food enthusiasts none of us in my house feel obligated to limit those yummy yummy foods to just one measly meal a day. Right??? RIGHT. This French Toast Casserole is so simple and easy, and it's great for those first couple of weeks … [Read more...]
