Cheesy Chip Dip Recipe, Oven baked chip dip, The Easiest Cheesy Chip Dip You will ever make, #ChipDip, #Cheese, #DipCheesy Chip Dip

If you like a good chip dip then this is a recipe you have got to try.  I had it for the first time about 15 years ago, it was a cold winter day we were getting together for a craft night with my cousins.  She pulled this hot bubbly chip dip out of the oven and we pretty much licked the pan clean… it was that good.  I told her I would love the recipe.  I was SHOCKED to find out how easy it was! I have been making it for social event ever since, and it is always a hit!

You will need

  • 1 80z brick of cream cheese
  • 1 can of Chili 15-19 oz(with NO beans) you just want meat and sauce
  • 2 cups grated Mexican blend cheese (or cheddar)
  • 3 green onions diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Corn chips to eat it with

In the bottom of a 9×9 pan spread the cream cheese in an even layer.  I use the back of a spoon, or just get my hand wet (prevents the cream cheese from sticking to it) and press into  an even layer.  Next open your can of NO BEAN chili spread in an even layer, top with grated cheese.

Put into  an 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or till cheese is totally melted and edges of the dip are bubbly. Take out of oven, sprinkle on the cilantro and green onions.  Serve with corn chips and watch it disappear 🙂

Oven Baked Smores made in less then 3 minutes Easy Family Recipe

Watch our recorded Live video of us making them below

Oven S'mores, EASY camping recipe made right in your kitchen. Fast and easy and SO GOOD, perfect for a big group and less mess, Popular dessert ideas for summerOven S’Mores made in less than 3 minutes

We had a big family reunion last week,  my sister was going to let the kids make s’mores for dessert, but it was too hot to start a fire. PLUS we did not really want the kids all smelling like smoke, so we made Oven S’Mores instead. I have to tell you, these are the BEST WAY to make s’mores. You can make a whole pan of them in less than 3 minutes. Plus you don’t have kids running around with sharp pointed objects, blazing hot, often with a burning marshmallow on the end.  But the very best part is the chocolate melts perfect and the marshmallow is toasted to perfection.

To make them all you need is:

Large baking sheet

Graham Crackers

Marshmallows

Hershey’s  Chocolate

Or you could just grab a S’mores Kit 

Break the graham crackers in half. On a large baking sheet spread out the graham crackers. Place 1-2 squares of chocolate on each cracker. Place a large marshmallow on top of the chocolate.  Put the pan in a preheated oven set to broil. I keep the door open so I can watch them close. I also put the oven rack down LOW so the pan is farther away from the heating element.  This allows the marshmallow to toast with less chance of burning. BUT they brown fast so watch them close, all it takes is 2-3 minutes with the oven on broil.

The chocolate will be perfectly melted, and might even be a little hot, so let them cool a few minutes before you serve them  to smaller children. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family does!

Cloud Clay Recipe – So soft and only 2 ingredients and no cooking recipe

Fun kids craft idea

Watch our recorded Live video of making the Cloud Clay below

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

Cloud Clay Recipe

My kids love clay and play dough. I make it at home sometimes, or we buy it at the store.  BUT this recipe is like no other, and it is SO FAST and simple.  You only need two things to make it and there is NO COOKING involved.   It is the softest and easiest clay you will ever make!!!  My science project loving daughter had a blast making this recipe with her friend the other day.  It smells amazing and leaves your hands smooth and moisturized!

Please note… if you do not get enough moisture into t he dough it will be come crumbly MUCH LIKE MOON SAND.  So you might want to have them play with it outside or on a cookie sheet for QUICK and EASY clean up.

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

All you need to make this Cloud Clay is:

Corn Starch

Conditioner

Food color and glitter are optional

Cloud Clay recipe, only need two things to make this NO COOK recipe. The fastest and softest clay you will ever make #Playdough, #Clay, #DIY, #Kids

You need 2 parts corn starch to 1 part conditioner.  I used 1 cup corn starch and 1/2 cup conditioner.  Please note that the brand you use might require a little MORE or a little LESS depending on how much water is in the conditioner.    When you first start to mix it,  it will appear that it is going to be too dry.  But just keep stirring and before long you will have a soft dough formed.

If you choose to add color or glitter you can do it two different ways.

You can add it to the dough ball once it is formed and mix it in.  OR you can add it to the conditioner before you add the corn starch. I think it is easiest to add it to the conditioner … but the girls thought it was fun to add it at the end and see the “marble or stripes” it made.

Store in a ziploc bag, as the kids play with it it might dry out a little. Just knead in more conditioner to keep it soft and moist.

APRICOT PINEAPPLE JAM RECIPE, quick and easy recipe that is a family favorite #Jam #recipe #Apricot

I posted this recipe back in 2010…. I made it again this year so I decided I would post the recipe in case you were looking for a good way to use your apricots.  Plus my photo skill have gotten much better over the years lol. Hope you enjoy this jam as much as my family does!

IMG_3392My Grandma use to make an Apricot Pineapple jam so I thought I would give it a try.

Apricot-Pineapple Jam

Makes 9 (1-cup) jars

  • 5 cups prepared fruit (about 2-1/2 lb. fully ripe apricots)
  • 1 can (15-1/4 oz.) crushed pineapple in syrup
  • 1/3 cup chopped maraschino cherries (optional I do not add them)
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 1 box fruit pectin (such as Sure-Jell)

Boil jars on rack in large pot filled with water 10 minutes. Place flat lids in saucepan with water. Bring to boil. Remove from heat. Let jars and lids stand in hot water until ready to fill. Drain well before filling.
Pit apricots; do not peel. Cut in small pieces and finely chop or grid. Add pineapple and syrup. Measure 5 cups apricotes, can of pineapple into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. Add cherries. Measure sugar and set aside.

Mix fruit pectin into fruit in saucepot. Place over high heat and stir until mixture comes to a full boil. Immediately add sugar and stir. Bring to a full rolling boil and boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and skim off foam with metal spoon.

Ladle quickly into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8-inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Invert jars for 5 minutes, then turn upright. After 1 hour check seals.

Apricots washed and pitted

IMG_3376I am not to big on “chunky jam” so we whipped ours.  Maleeya helped me…aren’t her tiny little hands cute.

IMG_3378Pineapple, Apricots and Pectin, mixed then added to the pot

IMG_3381Stirring and waiting to come to a boil

IMG_3383Started to boil so I added the sugar

IMG_3386Came back to a boil, cooked another minute…..now it is done cooking

IMG_3387I have my jars and lids HOT and ready to be filled

IMG_3388It is hot so watch out… Fill jars within 1/8 in of top (I should have filled mine up a little more)

IMG_3389

With a hot wet rag wipe the edged clean, if there is any jam on the side it may make it NOT seal.

IMG_3391Screw your lids on firmly.

IMG_3394Turn them upside down, for 5 mins

IMG_3395Mckeely was not too sure about this part…she thought I crazy for turning them on their heads. “Mom, what are you doing?”

IMG_3396

Turn them right side up, after they have cooled check to see if the have sealed…. all of mine did!!!! Yeah!  If they are sealed they will not make a popping noise anymore.APRICOT PINEAPPLE JAM RECIPE, quick and easy recipe that is a family favorite #Jam #recipe #Apricot
