Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways

I hope you are enjoying #ChristmasCookies Week, I know I am! I've already changed my holiday baking list three times, and I'm sure I'll be adding to it again.  These Chocolate Marshmallow Meltaways from Taste of Home have definitely been added to the list!


The only changes I made to the recipe was to use whole milk instead of 2%, it's what I have on hand, and garnished them with some holiday sprinkles.  The base cookie isn't overly sweet, so it makes it perfect when you add the marshmallow and the frosting to it.  Thank you so much to Joanna S. for sharing her recipe, these were like hot cocoa that you could eat!


Thank you again to Ellen from Family Around the Table and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures for all the hard work you've put into this!  And don't forget, tomorrow's the last day to enter for your chance to win that amazing prize pack from Nielsen Massey!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins #MuffinMonday

This is the first year I've been able to harvest the rhubarb from my garden. Today I got three nice sized, very red stalks so went searching for a recipe and came up with these Buttermilk Rhubarb Muffins from Taste of Home.  I upped the amount of nutmeg to 1/2 teaspoon and also added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. I took about 1/4 cup of the flour called for in the recipe and tossed it with the rhubarb to keep it from sinking, a trick I learned from my Gram.  I  use a cookie scoop to distribute the batter evenly. I also topped the batter with raw sugar before baking, we love the sparkle and crunch it gives the muffins. Thank you so much to Stacy for hosting and to all of the other #MuffinMonday bakers for sharing their recipes, be sure to check them out using the links down below!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick
