In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been somewhat on this kick for rice krispies treats, maybe it could have something to do with the four boxes of rice krispies that I bought.
The other day me and my friend were hanging out and he went to buy a box of these reeces cereal so he came back, and you know when you’re not hungry–but you’re hungry because there’s food.
Well i sorta started eating some of his cereal, but of course, I have to be difficult and not like the peanut butter part of it….in case you didnt know the only form of peanut butter I like is peanut butter out of the jar (creamy kind) any other form of peanut butter (ie: candy, cereal, etc) I dont like.
So to make it up to him and because now it has become this ongoing joke I decided to make him some reeces pieces rice krispies treats.
You can follow the instructions from Monday’s post on how to make rice krispies treats for the most part.
There’s something so amazing about these little cereal treats. They are sweet and crunchy and just the perfect size for a treat, anytime of the day. On top of everything theres almost anything that can be put into a rice krispies treat so that you have variations of flavors including, candy, cookies, plain, chocolate…pretty much just about anything!
So I decided to keep it simple today and make some plain rice krispies treats (most of these things you should have on hand already)
3 Tablespoons butter or margarine
4 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add KELLOGG’S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.
I did half of the recipe to make about 8 squares but you are more than welcome to use the regular or double recipe!
Last week I posted up a recipe that involved a DOUBLE BOILER for melting chocolate and I explained the wonders of using a double boiler so that you don’t burn the chocolate that you are trying to melt. Now, over the last couple of days I’ve been trying to find different types of chocolate that melt way. I have to tell you, my search isn’t going so well. So far, the best melting chocolate I’ve found is BAKERS chocolate, which only comes in semi-sweet and unsweetened so if anyone has any suggestions on which chocolate to use to get white chocolate or any other flavor please let me know!!
But here are the steps to making chocolate covered strawberries using a double boiler.
I’ve never really been a fan of seafood, I guess maybe its the textures or the lack there of substance. I mean I like tuna fish if that counts for anything. But my mom has this idea that a little fish is good for you, so once a week we should eat fish and since the only fish I eat is salmon I decided to spice it up a little bit and make something yummy so that I would eat it.
This mango salsa is a great accompaniment of citrus that I think all fish needs and its a great presentation point if you’re having company.
4 pieces Thawed Salmon Fillets
½ Tablespoons Olive Oil
½ teaspoons Salt
¼ teaspoons Pepper
1 Tablespoon Cajun Seasoning
1 can diced pineapple
In a small bowl place salmon fillets, drizzle with olive oil season with salt, pepper, cajun seasoning and 1/2 lemon and let sit overnight to marinate in the fridge.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. drizzle oil on oven pan, place salmon fillets skin side down on oven mat and place in oven, bake for 30-40 minutes or until tender.
In a small mixing bowl mix together can of pineapple (minus the juice), diced mango, and diced cilantro leaves, drizzle with the juice of 1 lemon.
Remove salmon from oven. serve with white rice and spoon about 2 teaspoons of salsa on top of each fillet.
