Fried Cheese-stuffed Zucchini Blossoms

yummilicious

Hello! 🙂 Before this recipe, I had never heard of zucchini blossoms. Due to the amazing witchcraft of the internet, me and my Granny put together probably one of the most scrumptious and also most unhealthy meals(with how many you eat, it becomes a meal) of fried, cheese-stuffed zucchini blossoms. But it was worth every last bite.

We made these for when my grandpa came home, but unfortunately for him, most of them were devoured the second they came out of the pan.

Let the deliciousness begin! 😛

4 Ingredient Dinner Scramble

Hello! Here we have a four ingredient (plus seasonings) scramble for dinner… It only consists of meat (I used 2 lbs of beef), (1 lb) potatoes, (an entire) bell pepper and an onion. Only other additions are any seasonings you feel like. I used garlic salt, pepper and a bit of cayan pepper.

Banana ‘Cookie’ Bars

Hello! The other day I was expecting company, so I decided it would only be right if I baked some sort of good. Of course, my first idea was my quick and delicious cookie bars. I begin to start the recipe and preheat the oven when I realize, we are out of butter. Of course, cookie bars cannot be made without butter, can they? So I decided to try. I used only banana instead of the butter and continued making the recipe. Not sure what to expect, when this beauty of a cake-y cookie came out, I was delighted. No one could stop eating these, and it’s probably more than half the fat my cookie bars are. Of course, that likely won’t stop me from making either again.

Here is the cookie bar recipe copied and pasted and changed slightly to be banana ‘cookie’ bars. 🙂

Chocolate Chip Challah

Hello! For those of you who go to temple… You know challah. Challah is challah. You either get it right or wrong, there isn’t an inbetween. I hope you enjoy my challah recipe. It is chocolate chip after all. 🙂

For those of you who don’t go to temple but are really curious what challah is… Challah is a beauty. It is like a giant braided roll with a touch more sweetness than usual and has a special flavor that I associate with challah, despite the fact it is just a sweet yeast-y taste. Awesome things about challah that you should know about eating challah: Challah is very good dipped into grape juice. Challah is meant to be teared off (hence the braiding) and shared with others. Challah can be eaten at any time (awesome right?) but is usually served for shabbat (Friday night at sunset to Saturday night at sunset… Jewish holy day). Challah is spectacular. It is food heaven in a bite. Expecially chocolate chip challah. Which I made today.

For those of you GEEKS: Let me tell you something about challah. We were best friends during Shabbat. I know, right? It’s so embarrassing. I don’t even… Whatever. So then during Passover, I started going out with my first unleavened-friend matzah who was totally gorgeous but then he moved to Indiana, and challah was like, weirdly jealous of him. Like, if I would blow her off to hang out with matzah, she’d be like, “Why didn’t you call me back?” And I’d be like, “Why are you so obsessed with me?” So then, for my passover party, which was an all-bread pool party, I was like, “Challah, I can’t invite you, because I think you’re yeast bread.” I mean I couldn’t have a yeast bread at my passover party. There were gonna be unleavened rolls there in their *baking suits*. I mean, right? She was a YEAST BREAD. So then her mom called my mom and started yelling at her, it was so stupid. And then she dropped out of school because no one would talk to her, and she came back in the fall for high school, all of her hair was cut off and she was totally weird, and now I guess she’s on chocolate chips. If you’ve never watched Mean Girls go educate yourself. Now. 

Ok. In all honesty, this is not even my family recipe. I based this off of this Kindergarten Challah recipe. As for the actual braid a beautiful instruction for 3, 4 and 6 strand braiding can be found here as well as my version for the 3 and 4 strand below.

Cheese-filled Hamburger Sliders

Hello again. 🙂 A couple days ago I made these cheese-filled mini hamburgers for dinner, topped with ketchup, cilantro, onion and cheese on a homemade sweet hamburger bun. They are likely closer to a meatball hamburger by the ingredients, but it is so delicious and perfect for this hamburger.

Avocado Macaroni and Cheese

Hello! Happy Buddha Day! I will be posting a craft later… Lotus Lanterns… until then, I am sharing a fun little idea you might enjoy…. Avocado macaroni and cheese. Super simple, super fun and super delicious. The avocado made it rich and creamy while the lime caused it to be perfect. I hope you enjoy as much as my family did. This is for about 2 pounds of macaroni and cheese.

Add 4 whole avocados(without the pit and skin so I guess not whole per se….), 1 tablespoon lime juice, some salt and pepper and 2 teaspoons of garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.

Add to macaroni and cheese in place of milk. 🙂 Enjoy. It’s that easy.
