Strawberry Cream Cheese Waffle Sandwiches

Image
This one is not rocket science  :)    I've been looking for some different ways to have my waffles in the morning, and ran across this one in Cooking Light.     Very easy, and will be even more delicious when local berries are ready.   I made up the entire cream cheese mixture (minus the fruit) and stored the extra servings in the fridge in a small container and plan on changing up the fruit to whatever I have on hand, blueberries, bananas, apples, etc.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Roll Ups

Image
I belong to a group on Facebook that shares what we are cooking for dinner.   Yesterday I posted that I took out thin sliced chicken breasts, but had no idea what I wanted to do with them, and Chicken Cordon Bleu was suggested.    Perfect!  I had ham and cheese left over from my sister's baby shower, so I did a quick Pinterest search for a rolled up version.   

My changes-  I accidentally omitted the seasoned crumbs due to a phone call while assembling the ingredients.    I used thinly sliced ham, and next time I'd definitely double it up or use the thick.   I used seedless Dijon mustard- my kid won't eat it if he spots the seeds.   Because I messed up the flour to crumb ratio- I sprayed the tops with a little cooking spray to make sure they browned up.

Everyone loved this one, and it will definitely be made again.  Thank you to Reeni for this great take on a classic recipe!

Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Image
We're all very excited that my sister is having a baby girl in June.   Her shower was this weekend, and there was soo much delicious food there.   Caprese Pasta Salad, Tollhouse Pie, Lemon Coconut Pixies & these Iced Oatmeal Cookies were my contribution.

Lots of Oatmeal cookie fans in my family, and when I saw these on Pinterest I snagged them right away.     I made only one change, and that was to use quick oats instead of old fashioned, because I had a lot of them on hand.    I doubled the recipe, and used my 1" cookie scoop.

I got so many complements on these, actually having to pull out my phone and give people the link to the blog because they all wanted the recipe.   Thank you so much to Jennifer at Mother Thyme for this instant family favorite!

Homemade Pretzel Bites

Image
A little birdie told me that today is "Eat Whatever You Want" day and I thought on it for a while and decided what I wanted was pretzels.  I liked the idea of doing bite sized because big pretzels seem to be a lot of work for something that disappears so quickly!  

I've made this recipe before and I love that the dough is made in the bread machine, especially since I didn't get started on these until 3:45.   There isn't specific instructions on making them bite size, I rolled out my ropes and then used a pastry scraper to cut them into bite sized pieces.

They will puff a bit in the baking soda/water solution.  Mine took almost 15 mins to get to a nice crispy golden brown and then we tossed half with butter/cinnamon sugar and half we brushed with butter and sprinkled with kosher salt   :)  This are fantastic, just like the ones we get at the mall!
