How To Make Kool-Aid Dill Pickles

“Kool-Aide pickles? I happened upon the recipe a week ago as I was doing some research for another one of my projects. It intrigued me enough to make a batch. But as I mixed together the Kool-Aide and poured it over the pickles, I couldn’t help but think I might be tossing out some nasty tasting pickles by the end of the week. I used cherry flavored Kool-Aide only because that is what the recipe stated. But I suppose you could use any flavor you desire.” w/ photo

How To Make Pasta Pizza

“I relied on this dish quite heavily when I was living on my own, going to school, and holding my first full-time job, all the while trying to support myself financially at the tender age of 17. Times were difficult, money was tight, and elaborate dinners were not a top priority for me. I used to make the pizza with just 4 ingredients: noodles, egg, cheese and tomato sauce. It was filling, delicious, creative, and cheaper than street pizza! The recipe has changed over time, but the approach remains the same… pasta crust, loads of toppings, delicious results, and lots of leftovers to boot!” w/ photos

How To Make Spaghetti Casserole

“This is a mildly seasoned recipe and I am sure if you wanted to spice it up a little more to taste; that would also work out fine. This is a large recipe and in its original state was designed to make 2 casseroles with one going in the freezer to bake later. We have some big eaters in this house and as a result an 11 x 15 casserole dish of this Spaghetti Casserole was very close to being wiped out. This Spaghetti Casserole Recipe would also be a great dish to bring to pot lucks, parties, or that church get together. The next time you and your family are in the mood for spaghetti, give this Spaghetti Casserole Recipe a try. Enjoy” w/ photos

How To Make Orange Gumdrops

These are delicious and so much better than anything you can buy in the store. The orange just bursts in your mouth the minute you sink your teeth into these gumdrops. Candy making can make even the best cook a little gun-shy, but these are very simple provided you have a good candy thermometer. Your biggest risk of trouble is not removing your corn syrup mixture from the heat the second it gets to soft crack. Everything else is easy! Once you get the hang of these you can really make any flavor you’d like. Use mint extract and some green food coloring. Raspberry extract and some red food coloring. Have fun and enjoy!” w/ photos

How To Make Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I keep making cookies like a fool, and turning down a cookie is WAY HARDER than any grueling workout. Especially when those cookies are peanut butter banana chocolate chip cookies. These cookies are a collision of three of my favorite baking ingredients. When I first saw a version of this recipe on How Sweet It Is, I practically slapped my forehead, sitcom-style — why hadn’t I ever thought to combine these flavors in a classic chocolate chip cookie? The peanut butter (and peanut butter chips) in the recipe add an irresistible saltiness, while the mashed bananas bring a lot of sweetness, along with a fabulous cakey texture.” w/ photos
