Fried Cheese-stuffed Zucchini Blossoms

yummilicious

Hello! ๐Ÿ™‚ Before this recipe,ย 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! ๐Ÿ˜›

Sugar Cookies to Decorate

Ok, I don’t know about any of you, but I’ve always had the problem of finding a sugar cookie recipe that doesn’t spread out. One that I can mess about with, make shapes and decorate without worrying about it spreading out or being too soft and falling apart. Well, I finally found one.

Awhile back, I was in the depths of Pinterest and I happened to pass a recipe that sounded decent, so I attempted it, mostly following the recipe. I ended up changing it slightly, and got what I consider the best sugar cookie for decorating. Although it isn’t the sweetest, it’s on the floury side, I like it because it doesn’t spread out and it isn’t too sweet for icing. Therefore, for my purposes, it was perfect. Since finding the recipe, I’ve used it a few times and finally took photos to post it here. Recently, I made them for Gage’s birthday party (will be posted in the next couple weeks).

Cherry Meringue Cookies

Hello! This past New Year’s Eve was a big one for me, I had my now boyfriend’s family coming to my house for dinner and dessert and had to think of some sort of celebration dessert that would make tons of servings that everyone would love. My head, of course, flew first to my favorite bar recipe of all time, my cookie bars, but the only problem I could see was the amount of butter and the limited portions for our guests. And for at least three teenagers being there, that just wasn’t going to cut it. So, I took a chance and decided to go the ‘new’ route. If I didn’t have a good recipe that made tons, why not find/make one?

I’m not quite up to the entire making your recipe from scratch quite yet, as I am still exploring the basics of some cooking skills. This being said, if I see a recipe,there is a 95% chance I’ll base it off the recipe and call it good enough. This past New Year’s was a perfect example of that. I decided on these RASPBERRY confetti cookies, but I didn’t have some of the called ingredients, you know, like raspberry jello. But they turned out well so therefore, mission accomplished.

Broken Glass Cupcakes

Hello! Yesterday was my stepfather’s birthday. My mother and I decided to make a Halloween theme for this birthday, so we decided to give broken glass cupcakes an attempt. The one problem we encountered was the fact we did not have a candy therometer, so most of the recipes we found we couldn’t really use as it relied on one. The first recipe we found was only water and sugar. We used this, but when it told us to put it in the pan, it didn’t set. Therefore, we decided to attempt again with a second recipe that included corn syrup. The recipe we ended up finding used the microwave instead of the stove, so I decided to change it slightly and do it over the stove.

Rosh Hashana

Happy late Jewish New Year! I hope this year of 5775 has been good to you already. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you’re reading this, you likely have some idea of Jewish religion or at least the holidays and traditions related to them. If not, then you should know Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashana has some awesome food traditions- like apples and honey (which, if I may say, the BEST fruit combination in the world) and round challah. So for Rosh Hashana, my family was treated with an amazing meal consisting of potato latkes (what’s a Jewish holiday without them?), apples and honey, and some meat. Let’s focus on those latkes though. Latkes- some of the most beautiful creations in the world. Salty, potato pancakes that are irresistable, and usually gone before dinner (not even kidding-this has happened a few times).

Ah, latkes. They may be the death of me…

This time we made fresh latkes out of potatoes, an onion, some salt and some oatmeal. That’s really it, it is one of the easiest pancake recipes I make. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sausage and Spinach Pasta

Hello! I don’t know about you, but I have always loved fall. Fall, the time of golden leaves and the nice breeze. Assuming you don’t live in Arizona. Even though I don’t get any fall-lke weather, I can still enjoy the yumminess that comes with fall. Like my absolutely favorite flavor, pumpkin. Already, I’m getting excited, I just got my first cans of pumpkin for the year and can’t wait to make some baked heaven with them…Until then, I guess I’ll have to return to my pumpkin-less cooking. Earlier this week, I made this delicious creation of pasta, sausage, spinach, mushrooms and (of course)onions.

Minnie Mouse Bowtique Pasta Salad

Hello! This pasta salad is bright pink and with bow pasta, to fit into Salem’s Minnie Bowtique Party. It is fairly simple to make colorful pasta, just boil water and add food coloring rightafter dumping the pasta in. The pasta becomes soft as it absorbs the boiling water, so if the water is blue, youll have blue pasta. For Salem, we made the water pink and added the bow-shaped pasta and got this beautiful result. To make the pasta salad, we added some poppy seed dressing, green onion, olives, corn, peas and onions and mixed it together. All in all, the guests were impressed with this easy, delicious pasta salad. We also served Minnie and Mickey Fondant Cakes and Minnie and Mickey Oreo Pops.

Other ideas could be:

  • Boiling three pots of water and splitting the spaghetti into the pots with different colors, then mixing them together to creat a tricolored spaghetti dish.
  • Adding a bit of blue food coloring to Macaroni and Cheese to create a green-blue result.
  • Using the color and pasta type for a themed festive event and serving pasta or pasta salad.

Hope you enjoyed. Feel free to email me with any questions at redheadedwhovian@gmail.com

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 myย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚
