Tasty Eats - Burger King, Spicy Food, and More

Welcome to another edition of tasty easts. I hope you enjoy the some of the culinary treats I had over the course of the last couple of weeks.  

For the first time, I tried the Spicy Ch'King from Burger King. I like some spicy food, but not much into Siracha. I think Siracha just adds spice with little flavor. I like buffalo spicy. This sandwich is very spicy and I think I would of enjoyed the regular Ch'King more than the spicy version. If you do like the heat, then do go for this sandwich

Speaking of spicy, I tried buffalo cauliflower bites from Buffalo Wings and Rings. This is also a new dish for me. The cauliflower was deep fried, and I found the cauliflower slightly soggy. Overall it was still tasty and has the buffalo flavor I expected from buffalo chicken wings. 

I did a recent post on this Cheesy Sausage Casserole and Peach Dump cake. You can read this post on my thoughts on these tasty items.

I usually make Peanut Butter Oatmeal balls, but I tried making a version with raisins. The raisin version was tasty, but I do prefer the peanut butter version. 

I have some spice cake left over from the Peach Dump cake, so I am going to try to incorporate it into the Coffee Cookie recipe. I will have to let you know  how that turns out. 

For dinner one night, I made a creamy tomato pasta dish based on this Pin from Pinterest. Instead of using spinach, I add fresh veggies I had on hand that I wanted to use up. Turned out tasty. Next time I make this I plan on trying it with the spinach.

My loving husband had made some Chinese food one night. He whipped up crab rangoons rolls and fried rice. The sesame chicken is a frozen meal from the grocery store.

To round out this version of tasty eats, I have pineapple coffee cake. I have an any fruit recipe in my now vintage 1990's Better Homes and Garden Cook Book. I had fresh pineapple to use up and it worked out nicely in this coffee cake.

That wraps up this edition of tasty eats. I hope this inspires you to make or experience some tasty eats.

Cheesy Sausage Casserole and Peach Dump Cake

I had found a Cheesy Sausage and Cabbage Casserole and Peach Dump Pie pie for dessert. I was anticipating using a 9 by 13 inch pan to make the dessert, but the can of peach pie filling did not even fill out the pan. I eventually moved on to the one of my favorite baking pans. It is a narrow stone baking pan. I don't even remember where I got it from. To make this dessert I used a can of pie filling, a half of a box of of spice cap dumped on top and randomly added dabs of butter on top. I might of baked it for about 30 minutes or until it was bubbly and golden brown. The cake was delicious and ended up being the perfect size and did not have any left over.

I had plenty of the cheesy casserole left over. This was also tasty if you are into cabbage. The downside to this recipe is that I a lot of water is the dish. It was almost like a soup. If I make this again, I guess I would have to make sure all the water from the cabbage is cooked off.

Raisin Snack Balls

I thought I would try to make a different kind of breakfast, energy or snack ball besides my peanut butter ones.

 I was experimenting with this, so this recipe might be altered in the future. To make these I used:

About 1/2 cup raisins - I finished off the box I had

1/2 T dark corn syrup 

1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

1/4 cup flax seed

1/2 cup oatmeal.

I had soaked my raisins in about 1/2 cup of water to make them more plump, but hindsight tells me I might not do this in the future. I ran my raisins in my food processor to make it more like a paste.  combine the remaining ingredients. Form into about 1 inch balls. It made 8 balls.

According to a fitness app I have, 1 ball has 136 calories  with 23.9 grams of carbs, 2.9 grams of fat, and 2.4 grams of protein.

Overall I like the peanut butter ones better, but that is only because I like peanut butter.

Coffee Cookies

 As soon as I have seen a blog post on Coffee Biscuits. I knew I had to make it.  I noticed that is a little bit similar to Never Fail Cookies.

These coffee cookies are also simple. It just has flour, sugar, butter, baking powder, and instant coffee dissolved in water.

It also is a small recipe, it only made 10 cookies for me.

This recipe has:

1 cup flour

1/4  teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup sugar

6 tablespoons soft butter

1 tablespoon instant coffee

1 tablespoon water

Combine flour and baking powder in a bowl.  Combine water and coffee in a separate bowl. Cream butter and sugar.  Add in the flour mixture and coffee mixture. Shape into teaspoon size cookies and press down lightly. If desired, coat in sugar. Bake at 160 degrees C. I baked it at 325 F. I ended up slightly overbaking my cookies cooking them for 17 minutes. So I am going to stick to 10-15 minutes.

Even though I ended up over baking my cookies, I still enjoyed them. 

Made another batch that is cooked at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
