1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 t vanilla

 1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream the buttery spread, cream cheese, and sugars Mix the remaining ingredients. Use as a dip with Pretzel Chips.

Pasta night

Last week it was pasta night, not just for the main course, but for dessert too. The top photo is chocolate pasta. The photo below is rye noodles.

With the chocolate noodles, it was severed with vanilla ice cream and a strawberry balsamic sauce that my husband made.

With the rye noodles I made a Rueben casserole.

Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a recipe box that I inherited from my mother-in-law. I knew that there was a recipe for sugar free cookies, but I could not find that recipe. I did stumble upon a oatmeal coconut cookie recipe and since I had coconut to use up, I used that recipe. I did add chocolate chips and reduced the flour , which I should not have. The cookies ended up a little flat.

But they were delicious.

Chili and Cinnamon Rolls

I would of never of paired chili and cinnamon rolls together, but I guess it is a thing in at least Nebraska.

It started out I wanted to make something in a crock pot and I thought of chili. I don't make chili that often and was surprised to come across beer in the recipe. I am glad we had some in the fridge, because I was not going to buy a six pack of beer for just using a bottle. I guess I could of, my husband would of drank the beer.

Then while making the chili I remember that my husband likes to have cinnamon rolls with his chili. I did not want to go back to the store to buy cinnamon rolls nor did I want to make a large batch of rolls and spend hours making them. What are the odds that I not only find a small batch cinnamon rolls recipe, but it is made in about an hour too. I found it here.

So going back to the pairing of these two items, I guess the two used to paired as part of a school lunch.

Strawberry Mint Lemonades

My son made up some strawberry mint lemonade. He added some sliced strawberries and mint leaves to ordinary lemonade. Just let the lemonade sit for a while so the flavors can come through.

Carrot Muffins

I had some left over shredded carrot when my husband made macaroni salad over the past Memorial Day weekend. I decided to make muffins.

I thought it would be cute to make a smiley face using some origami. I had posted this photo to Instagram earlier. I found a recipe on the web.

Have It Your Way

I saw the variety of sandwiches at Burger King that had sourdough bread, so I asked if I could have sourdough bread on the Big Fish sandwich.  The manager also recommended using the mozzarella from their chicken parmesan sandwich to their burgers.
