Blue Solo Cup…

Today’s post isn’t exactly about food, but it is about an exceptional wine….


This is a sweet , ummmm…dare I say yummy wine & it was love at first sip!  I am by no means an expert, but I have sampled my share of vino. This particular one has a full bodied natural honey flavor like I’ve never tasted before….


Warner Vineyards Peach & Honey Wine


Thanks to my mother in law, I got a chance to sample to my hearts content.  Granted, this isn’t a normal Sunday afternoon activity, but the boys were away for the day & we decided to kick back and relax a spell….


Has anyone else tried this wine?


Easy 3 Ingredient Fudge

I posted an awesome & fun to make recipe yesterday for Snow Milkshakes– Now i’m left with 1/2 a can of sweetened condensed milk…what to do, what to do.

So, I decided to whip up a batch of super duper sweet tooth satisfying fudge. 



It contains 3 simple ingredients:

Easy 3 Ingredient Fudge

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 7 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter

Instructions

  1. Place ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Melt in microwave on medium heat setting for approx. 3 minutes, stirring occasionally until completely melted. Pour into a greased or wax paper lined pan. (This recipe makes a small batch, so a regular sized bread pan works well.) Refrigerate until firm. Cut into bite size pieces.

This recipe can easily be doubled (whole can of sweetened condensed milk, 3 cups chocolate chips and 4 tablespoons of butter)

 
I created another variation of this awesome fudge with toffee….to see it click here
 FYI- I cut the fudge into squares after it came out of the refrigerator, then I let it sit out on the counter for a  little bit to semi-soften again….OMG… we’re talking Chocolate Heaven here!… I had a “just walk away from the fudge before you eat the whole plate moment”

SNOW MILKSHAKES!!


Nothing beats the early morning of a snow day….

   I love being able to quietly sneak into my kid’s bedrooms and whisper “no school today”.   I remember those days as a kid too.  I couldn’t wait to be able to sleep in but was always too excited about having the day off of school to really go back to sleep. 
 So what are we going to do with all of this extra time and snow?




MAKE SNOW MILKSHAKES!!!

We bundled up in our coats, hats, and gloves and headed to the front yard.  It’s 32 degrees outside, so the snow was nice and packy (is that a word?)…well, you know what I mean.


The ingredients are very basic:


8 Cups of fresh, clean snow
7 ounces sweetened condensed milk (1/2 can) I used fat free.
2 teaspoons vanilla


Mix together all 3 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir it together until it’s the consistancy of a milkshake. 


Mine was a plain vanilla shake, but mini chocolate chips, pureed fruit, or a little chocolate syrup could be added.  I have to admit, this was pretty darn tasty and fun to make.

Protein Bites

I tried an awesome recipe today!  I get so excited when I try a new one and it ACTUALLY tastes like it looks in those yummy pictures…..yay me!


I was starving when I made these, so I was practically running to the pantry to gather all the ingredients…..




1 1/4 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
3 Tablespoons ground flax seeds
1/4 cup finely ground nuts (I used peanuts)
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (mini size)
1/4 cup + (smidge more) honey
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened nut butter (I used almond)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Combine the Rice Krispies, oats, flax seed, chocolate chips, and nuts in a medium size mixing bowl.
Next, measure the  honey and brown sugar in a small saucepan. 



Over medium high heat, bring the brown sugar and honey to a boil.  Remove from heat and add the nut butter and vanilla. 
Next, pour the nut mixture over the cereal mixture and stir, Stir, STIR!  Press into greased mini muffin or 8″ pan.





As I pressed them into the muffin pan, I found myself snacking on it all the while… yumma yumma…mmm.  Remember- I was starving!  One note: regular peanut butter can be used instead of unsweetened nut butter, just use a smidgen less honey…




I found this recipe on This Chick Cooks and made a few modifications.
