This recipe is a close relative of spiced crackers. The only real difference here is the choice of spice add in used. I prefer to keep the cayenne pepper out of my spiced crackers, but it pairs well with pretzels, at least in my mind.
Spicy Pretzels with a Kick pairs well with beer because of the kick. I like to serve these when we are having a few folks over to watch football games.
These pretzels also serve well as hostess gifts just like Peppermint Crunch and Spiced Crackers do.
New Orleans Style Bread Pudding is my kind of bread pudding. This bread pudding does not have large pieces of bread hanging out. This is creamier than other bread puddings, but not too egg-y.
It can be made with any kind of leftover bread that you have laying around. One day I would like to try this with stale cinnamon rolls. But, that would mean there were leftovers………..
I prefer making this with some dried out quick yeast rolls. I’m able to crumble them pretty quickly and these rolls absorb the liquid pretty easily. As you are mixing up this bread pudding, the consistency will look like really wet oatmeal. No worries, this will bake up and set just fine. If it needs a little extra baking time, that’s OK too. It just means crispier edges, which in my opinion is the best part.
Caramel corn just tastes better when it is homemade. Why do you think it tastes better at the fair than it does pre-packaged? Because it is fresh and way closer to homemade! This recipe makes a large batch and you might want to have a sharing plan before you make it, otherwise it might just get in your belly.
It will be buttery, sweet, crispy and irresistible. You can add cinnamon, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, or just about any kind of spice you want. We have even added peanuts before and it they turned out fine.
Before you go to thinking that it is hard to make, it really isn’t hard. It is a little time consuming, so you won’t be eating it nearly as quick as you would something out of a box. It’s worth the wait though, I promise!
Flat Burger Sliders were created because, as you can only guess, there is no restaurant around here that serves decent thin patty burgers on slider buns. In addition, there is no White Castle or Krystal Burger within easy driving distance of Tulsa.
I have seen the several hundred, maybe even thousands, of White Castle copycat recipes on the interwebs. Yes, I have tried a few. No they did not make me happy.
This recipe is not supposed to be a copycat of either of those restaurants. I don’t believe you can accurately copy those recipes without their preformed patties, who knows what unhealthy additives, nor their large griddles. I think there might even be some magic in the little boxes they stuff the baby burgers into.
Beer boiled shrimp is something I make for others. Shrimp is kind of the bane of my existence, most seafood really. I can eat salmon only if it’s hidden in a salmon patty. Crab can be covered up in a stuffed mushroom. Crab cakes and fried fish must be covered in lemon juice and tartar sauce.
This recipe is quick, simple and perfect for serving at gatherings. It can be served hot or cold so you can make it while company waits or make it earlier in the day and avoid kitchen detail when guests arrive.
This recipe uses just a few simple ingredients, all easily found at your local grocery store. Celery, lemons, onions, beer, and Old Bay are ingredients I tend to have on hand. Shrimp, not so much. Continue reading “Beer Boiled Shrimp”→
Anyone who knows me, the real me, knows that I can’t just leave a recipe alone. It’s like an addiction. I add this, take away that, increase this and decrease that. Sometimes it’s successful, sometimes it is a complete disaster.
Yes, even food bloggers have bad hair days in the kitchen. Sometimes the bad hair day is literal when you create some great recipe only to find a hair taking a leisurely swim in your dish.
Once I even served general’s chicken and the DH was mortified, I had completely forgotten to put the sugar in. I even had the sugar canister near the stove. I carried it back to the pantry without another thought, until we ate it. Accidental kitchen disaster, but that was just nasty.
