Sunflower Seed And Peanut Bars

These bars are packed with stuff that is good for you, like....
1 1/4 cups of sunflower seeds
3/4 cup coconut
1/4 cup roasted peanuts
1/4 cup honey
2 T peanut butter
1/4 t vanilla

Mix the seed, coconut, and peanuts in a bowl.
Mix the honey, peanut butter, and vanilla in a bowl. Add to the sunflower seed, coconut, and peanut mixture.
Mix well and press into a greased (and/or line with parchment paper) 8x8 pan.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Cool about 30-40 minutes.
Enjoy! You might not care if these are good for you, they are delicious.

So I have to give credit to were I was inspired to make these bars. It comes out of the Bon Appetite magazine. It is the Sesame-Peanut Bars. I went with sunflower seeds because it was cheaper than sesame seeds. So you can make this recipe with sesame seeds if you want.

Tasty Eats V

 My husband has brought home donuts home for us to eat for breakfast the next day.
Yes, why that is tomato soup and ramen noodles. I did add fresh tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and cheese.

This is a brownie with chocolate and white chocolate chips. The brownie recipe also did come from the 50 Bar Cookie insert from the Food Network Magazine.

I was at the grocery store and could not resist taking a picture of orange cauliflower, there was purple there too.

Finally I have grilled cheese with pesto in it.

Tasty Eats IV

Since now that my husband started a new job, he hasn't been home to cook dinner. This means not a lot of tasty eats to share. 

My son brought this peanut butter dessert home with him. It was rich and decadent. 

Made me up a smoothie one night. It is milk, peanut butter, and chocolate syrup. Mixed in some ice.

I made a home made veggie mac and cheese.

This is snicker-doodle bar. The recipe comes out of The Food Network Magazine. It is in the 50 Bar Cookies Insert.

Tasty Eats III

 I did a post earlier this week on these Double Chocolate And Raisin Cookies.

Our youngest son decided to cook up some Greek burgers for dinner one night.  Turned out delicious. He did not have a lot of experience cooking, so my husband had a lot of input on this dish.
 Who doesn't love Rice Krispie Treats.
 So in December of last year I did a post on Minnesota Wild Rice Griddle Cakes.  So this time I made the product into a waffle. The only deviation is the I whipped up my egg white. I do that for all my waffles. It make the waffle light an fluffy. However these waffle were a little on the dense side, but delicious with butter and honey.  Don't forget the orange juice.

Double Chocolate And Raisin Nut Cookies

My husband at first was skeptical about these cookies when I first told him I was making these cookies. After he tasted them, he said it was delicious. It reminded him of chocolate covered raisins.

So go ahead...make them for yourself.
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of shortening (I use 1/2 butter and 1/2 cup shortening)
1 t vanilla
2 eggs
2 Cups Flour 

1/3 cup cocoa
1 t baking soda
1 cup raisins
2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts

Cream the shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Then I add the dry ingredients, adding the raisins, chocolate chips, and nuts last.
Drop by teaspoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet, bake for 8 -10 minute in a 350 degree oven.

Tasty Eats II

Welcome to the second week of tasty eats

First up is caramel corn. I made this up with my grand kids. They found my candy thermometer and wanted to know what it was for. So I had to demonstrate and make caramel corn.

Next I have fish tacos. It is fish fillet, with cheese, tomatoes, tarter sauce wrapped in a tortilla.

These are chocolate chip cookies, I made these up when the grand kids where here the same time day we made the caramel corn.

Here is peach mango lemonade. Fresh lemons, peach nectar, and mango nectar go into this.

This was dinner one night, cheese tortellini with a meat sauce and cheese bread.

Finally I have pancakes with a powdered sugar glaze and strawberry jam on top. It was delicious, but next time I should stick with maple syrup.

Tasty Eats I

Every week I will share the tasty food I had during the week.

We got some food rolled up this week. First up is Steak-Umms and sliced cheese rolled up in canned biscuit dough baked with butter and Parmesan cheese on top . The butter biscuit seemed to be the overwhelming flavor for me.

Here we have pasty dough with a strawberry filling topped with whipped topping.

This is a flan dessert that my son brought home from work. It was very rich and heavy custard. It was awesome! I believe the whipped cream is real whipped cream.

Love diet Mtn Dew!

The next three pictures was Saturday  morning breakfast. It it just bread with the crust cut off, flattened with a rolling pin, layer of cream cheese and strawberries, It is then rolled up, fried in a pan, and then topped with whipped cream. If we had chocolate chips, that would of been added too.
