No Machine 4 Ingredient Mint & Chip Ice Cream   by Tiffany

You want to know what I learned this week?! I learned that you could take heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk and turn it into ice cream – thanks to my handy dandy Woman’s Day magazine.  I love homemade ice cream – but really don’t like the hassle that goes along with it.  This recipe is easy peasy and if you have a mixer – you’re in business! The end results were creamy-minty-chocolatey goodness without a lot of fuss! The best part – the flavor combinations are endless. Just start with a base of heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk and use your imagination. :) Of course –  I had to go with my favorite the first time around. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 can 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons mint extract
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 4 drops green food coloring, optional

Directions

  1. In a standing mixer, beat heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and mint extract (If adding green food coloring, do so now.) until thick, stiff peaks form. Fold in chocolate chips. Transfer mixture to a freezer safe container or loaf pan. Cover and freeze overnight.

Worm and Dirt Cake

We recently had a blue and gold banquet for our cub scout troop and the boys were each responsible for bringing an outdoor themed cake.  I wanted my son to be able to do most of the work himself, since that was the point of them bringing them.  I was thinking about the cups of pudding we used to have as kids with crushed oreos on top and gummy worms and decided to incorporate that idea into a cake!

You will need

A chocolate cake mix and ingredients on the box

Chocolate graham crackers or oreos

Chocolate frosting

gummy worms

rolling pin and ziploc storage bag (for crushing the crackers)

I usually make my own frosting, but since I was in charge of the event I decided one less thing to do and worry about would be best, so I bought a container of frosting.  Once the cake is baked according to the box directions, and cooled completely, spread the chocolate frosting over the cake.  Don’t worry about the imperfections or having it iced beautifully because it will be covered by cracker/ cookie crumbs.

Once the cake is frosted, put one package of your chocolate graham crackers (just one of the envelopes from inside the box, not the whole box) or the whole package of your oreos in a ziploc storage bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.  Some chunks are fine, dirt isn’t perfectly smooth there is always rocks or clumps in the dirt anyway.  This is another great way the kids can help!  My 9 year old did all the steps, I just stood back and directed him how to do it all which made him so proud!

Once they are crushed pour them over the top of your cake, evening them out with your hand to make sure all the icing is covered.  Now just add your worms.  Gently push some down into the crumbs so they look like they are coming out of the dirt and you are done!

This is such a great, simple cake that is great for someone just learning their way around the kitchen.  Seeing how proud they are when they make something that looks awesome and tastes great is such a fun thing!

French Toast, Stuffed French Toast breakfast ideas restaurant style, Easy recipes that look super fancy, breakfast menu, Restaurant Style Breakfast Made Easy ~ Lemon Blueberry Stuffed French Toast RecipeRestaurant Style Breakfast Made Easy ~ Lemon Blueberry Stuffed French Toast Recipe

French toast is one of my families favorite meals… I am not a “perky morning person” so we tend to eat it as a brunch instead of a breakfast. Plus brunch just sound fancier and it means I get a little more sleep. Stuffed french toast is actually rather easy to make, if you can butter bread then you can stuff french toast.  You can make it at home for a fraction of the price of a restaurant and the homemade version taste so much better.

Ingredients
1 ½ C blueberries
¼ C coconut sugar (or regular sugar)
1 lemon-its zest and juice
1 loaf cinnamon raisin bread
2 C milk
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon-optional
1 tub cool whip
1 block cream cheese

Directions
Start by whisking together your eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in an 8X8 dish. Once combined soak thee cinnamon raisin bread into the milk mixture. I tend to just dunk them in and then flip to the other side and pull it out. Take them out and put them on a hot pan or a hot skillet. Cook both sides until they are a golden brown.

To make the cream filling  add  soft cream cheese to a bowl and mix with electric mixture until smooth and fluffy. Add in the tub of cool whip and mix on medium speed for 1 minute. You will use this mixture to spread between 2 slices of French toast. Or you can add a little on top.

Lemon Blueberry glaze Directions
In a sauce pan add in the blueberries, sugar, and lemon zest and lemon juice.Bring to a boil and stir constantly until blueberries have softened and mixture has thickened up. Serve over stuffed French toast.
