Jumbo Marshmallow Pops

If you’ve been following my blog, than you already know that I have a group of Neighborhood Gals that I hang out with, go to lunch with and gather together to play games… cards, dominos, all sorts.

I like to bring along a snack for everyone, sometimes sweet and sometimes savory or even both on occasion.

I went sweet this time around…

I saw the biggest Marshmallows I’d ever seen in my life at the Mega-Mart… I had to dream up something cool to do with them!

I melted some Dark Chocolate, skewered the Marshmallows with Cake Pop sticks, dipped and then rolled them while still wet in an assortment of sprinkles.
Graham Cracker Crumbs
Candy Dots
White Nonpareils
Rainbow Jimmies

I must say, my personal favorite was the Graham Cracker Crumbs, it tasted alot like a S`More!

Mushroom Crostinis

I know I’ve told you folks that I love to go to grocery stores and just poke around to see what I can find.

Recently I was in our local Trader Joe’s and I had been looking for their Mini Brie Bites, love those things, but they said that they were having issues with the manufacturer and yet THERE THEY WERE!!!

I usually pick up a loaf or three of the Ciabatta Demi Baguettes.
And as I was strolling past the frozen food case I spied this

Hmmm …

I sliced the Ciabatta, gave them all a quick toast under the broiler, followed the directions on the package of Mushrooms and assembled.

I arranged them neatly and took this tray next door for yet another afternoon of card playing with my Neighborhood Gal Pals.
These tidbits were gone in a New York Minute.

Remember, a recipe is simply someone else’s idea, take it and make it your own.

Cook for your friends and family!

Where Have You Been And Started To Sing … ? ~ Part 5

“Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…”

The morning after a pretty good snow storm a coupla years back, DH and I took a drive up to the South Rim of The Grand Canyon… we don’t live terribly far away.
We took a picnic lunch, a thermos of hot Coffee and made a day of it.

BEAUTIFUL!!!

Back Home In Hawaii ~ May 2019 ~ Part 5

If you’re a foodie as I am, then you already know that Hawaii has some pretty unique foods and dishes.
Here are a few of my favorites.

These fried dumpling are called Crispy Gau Gee, very popular served as either an appetizer as you see above, or in Noodle dishes.

You’ll find this in the produce section of any grocery store in Hawaii, but not here in Cowboyville I’m afraid.

So I make my own when I need some for say my Fried Saimin. It’s quite simple, shredded Green Cabbage, Carrots and Mung Bean Sprouts.

Kahuku Corn. This is hands down the best Corn you’ll ever have. 

This is a fruit that in Hawaii we call Mountain Apple. These grow in so many folk yards and they will put out boxes filled with them with a sign on it “free”.

S&S Saimin. No, this is nothing like Ramen. This noodle is unique to Hawaii.

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile now, you’ll be familiar with these crackers. Diamond Bakery Soda Crackers, the best! 

These are just a few of the unique foods found in Hawaii. Maybe you need to take a flight over to discover some for yourselves? 

Our story will continue, so stayed tuned …
