Seafood Stew

Seafood Stew

I am officially on a path to eat healthier. That is the hardest thing for me about being a food blogger, all of the food you have around. It doesn’t help either that I am not cooking for a family so that the joy can be shared. I give a lot of it away but I’m going to start doing even more of that. Does that mean that I am going to stop making all of the sugary recipes that I make now, no way! Anything in moderation isn’t bad for you it’s when you don’t practice restraint that it can get you in trouble. For years I have made excuses, that ends now.

I’ve had this  recipe on mind for more than a month ago and decided it was finally time to make it. I had made some apple cider caramels this week and decided to use them in these easy to make bar cookies. There is no mixer needed for this recipe, it can be all mixed up by hand. These are so good, they have a buttery oat crust with caramel; and chocolate.

Cordon Bleu Pizza

Love, love this pizza. It is ready pretty quickly too when you use Fleischmann’s Pizza Yeast for the dough. I was sent the yeast by Fleischmann’s for an upcoming post I am doing so tonight was test night so I could see how this yeast worked. This was the crispiest crust on a homemade pizza I have ever made. This yeast is different than regular yeast because you don’t have to wait for it to raise to make the pizza. Just mix it up, knead it for about 4 minutes and roll or pat the dough out on your pizza pan. Because this yeast has dough enhancers in it when you make the crust it won’t bounce back or shrink like a dough using regular yeast will do. I really like the yeast and can’t wait to make some more pizza’s tomorrow.

This may be my favorite Ooey Gooey Butter Cake yet. I get lots of emails usually after Halloween and people are looking for a way to use up their leftover Halloween candies. This cake will have the kids begging you to take their Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups once you make this for them. You can use any candy you want, I used a mixture of peanut butter cups and Butterfingers for a little crunch. The cream cheese layer is packed with peanut butter flavor and then topped with more chocolate.

I had my doubts about what this would taste like when I started it but I just had to try it. I added a few more spices to it and this will be going into my rotation of things I’d make again. Those are even dill pickles on top. They actually helped pull the whole thing together. I bet your kids will love this dish!
