How To Make Graham Crackers

“Graham crackers from scratch, like most anything, taste so much better. I mean it. So much better! I honestly don’t think I could buy a box again. The only problem I ran into was I couldn’t find graham flour anywhere. Yes, you can substitute, but I wanted the real thing since we would be enjoying these crackers by themselves. Thankfully, the amazing internet allowed a bag to be delivered to my door two days later. Now, you can truly enjoy these crackers enough to eat them alone, make a little sandwich out of them, or go ahead and enjoy a tasty S’more.” w/ photos

How To Make Spinach & Cheddar Rolled Omelet

This wonderful omelet goes perfect for a Sunday brunch, with it’s family-style appearance that is also very pretty and easy to serve. On the other hand, it’s so easy to make and you can re-heat the leftovers that it’s great for a weekday meal as well. I had planned this for a special occasion, but after seeing my two year old daughter devour it, I know I’ll be making this more often! The original recipe called for two packages of spinach, but one 9-oz package is plenty. I also decided to use a mild, white cheddar so it didn’t overpower the light flavor of the eggs and spinach.” w/ photos

How To Make Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnut Muffins

“When it comes to food and trying to eat healthy I sometimes get caught up in semantics. A muffin is healthier than a doughnut because they usually contain fruit, nuts, whole wheat, whatever. A doughnut doesn’t have anything going for it besides its deliciousness. If you’re like me and try to convince that little angel on your shoulder that it’s okay to indulge, just tell your the angel that this doughnut is a muffin and it’s totally okay! Seriously, this is yummy!” w/ photos

How To Make Strawberry Leather

“I always thought you needed a dehydrator to make fruit leather and I wasn’t about to shell out a lot of money on a gadget that would make jerky and fruit leather. When I saw this recipe I immediately clipped it, but it took me a while to actually make it. It’s great to make a bunch when the fruit is in season. If you are like me, you bought or picked too much ad you want to find great ways to use it. Plus, you don’t need perfect looking fruit to make fruit leather. If you can, go ahead and make a few batches, that way you don’t feel guilty about having your oven on for so long.” w/ photos

How To Make S’more Ice Cream

“There are shortcuts you can make with this recipe, using lesser quality chocolates or not doing the mix of 60% and 70%, but I strongly suggest using the chocolates listed if you can. If you can’t find them, they are essentially bittersweet chocolate. It will yield a deeper, richer flavor. If you can’t, it will still taste good, I promise! Obviously, the more homemade ingredients you use the better it will taste as well, but if you aren’t up for it go ahead for the store-bought. Don’t deny yourself this decadent treat!” w/ photos

How To Make Cowboy Caviar

“Looking for something different to bring to a barbeque or picnic this weekend? Or, maybe you just want something to make to gobble up yourself? Here it is folks! I made this one afternoon for a BBQ we were going to later in the evening. I couldn’t stop ‘tasting’ it. Then, when my husband came in he couldn’t either. Once we got to the BBQ, we were anxious to open it so we could dive in. This recipe makes a lot, almost 3 pounds worth of food, and it was pretty much eaten by four adults! We forced ourselves to eat the rest of the food, but we could have just had the bean salsa and been good. It’s a hardy appetizer, but the Italian dressing gives it a nice, light taste. Really, with all of the beans and vegetables, it’s good for you!” w/ photos
