Easy Salted Caramel Popcorn

The last time I tried to make caramel corn it set the smoke alarm off in our building, so I have been really hesitant to try it again.  I found this recipe for Salted Caramel Popcorn over at Cookies and Cups and it was delicious!  The only thing I changed was using less butter. Was it crispy & […]

Homemade Pretzels in 30 Minutes

One of my best friends from college came to visit a couple of weeks ago, and we made these pretzels!  I was surprised at how quick we made these, but they really did take 30 minutes from start to finish. If you have a hard time getting them rolled out add a little more flour. […]

Skinny Taco Dip

Our small group ate this up in a hurry.  I thought it was really good, super easy and I definitely wish I had some right now! Print Skinny Taco Dip   Ingredients ⅓ cup of plain greek yogurt (I accidentally used honey, and it surprisingly worked…but plain is best) 2-3 tsp taco seasoning* 1 can […]

Kale Chips

We made kale chips finally!  Super easy and pretty tasty. Make sure your kale is dry.  Brush olive oil over the leaf and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Bake at 350 degrees until the edges are golden.  They will be nice and crispy, sort of like a potato chip. This is not something we would […]

Homemade Applesauce

I have never really eaten applesauce until recently.  We have a lot of wineries and orchards around town, and not long ago we bought some applesauce from one of the local orchards.  It was really good, so when I stumbled across a recipe for a homemade version I thought why not. Homemade Applesauce:  This recipe […]

Lemonade Slush

We have found another use for our ice-cream maker.  Slushies! Just pour 4 cups of any chilled soda, lemonade, or juice into the ice-cream maker.  And in 15 minutes you have a slush.  I did read that you shouldn’t use any sugar free drinks.   I think we will be making these again soon.  They […]

Cheese and Crackers Upgraded

This snack is what I posted about a couple of weeks ago.  The lighting was bad so I decided to post again with a better picture.  Just take some ritz crackers, add a slice of mozzarella or cheddar cheese, and a sliced cherry tomato.  It is best to go ahead and slice the tomatoes or they will […]

Fall Snack

This fall snack was Den’s idea. Apple cider with popcorn + cheetos. It was really good.  This is what we served Halloween night to the staff.  They really enjoyed it.  The funny thing was the talk about apple cider.  Wanting the recipe, thinking it was a northern thing, a white people thing?  Sometimes I think our generation […]

a delightful little snack

I am not sure these little treats photographed so well.  I blame it on the lighting and the cookie sheet. These were perfect though.  I was so delighted to come home from work and find that Den had made these.  I get so hungry between breakfast and lunch when I have to work the early […]


So we finally bought an avocado this week. I’ve been wanting to buy one for some time, but I keep forgetting to put it on the grocery list. By the way, I have always thought that avocados were really unhealthy because of all the fat. However, due to my recent nutrition class I now know […]
