Healthy Snack Ideas, kale chips a recipe so easy you kids could  make them, low cost but healthy

Healthy Snacks Crispy Kale Chips

How many of you love something with crunch and a touch of salt… calling all potato ship addicts.  As much as I love a good potato chip they do not always love me back… maybe it is the fact that I am getting older? Or maybe it is the fact that I can eat  half a bag, not the little snack size back I am talking about the big family sized bag. Yip, leave it open next to me and slowly but surely they magically disappear.   Kale chips are a great way to satisfy that craving, in a healthy way.  They are really easy to make too!

What you need to make a batch:

1 bunch kale
2 T. olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven to 275°F.
2. Fill a large bowl with water and add kale. Swish around to remove any dirt; drain. Dry thoroughly using a clean kitchen towel or salad spinner.
3. Tear the kale leaves into 1” – 2” pieces, discarding the ribs, and place in a large bowl.
4. Drizzle with olive oil and toss with your hands until evenly coated.
5. Arrange the leaves in a single layer (with NO overlap) on ungreased cookie sheets. Rub each leaf gently between your fingers as you work to ensure each is covered in oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Optional: Sprinkle a small amount of parmesan cheese
6. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until leaves are crispy.

Grandmas Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes ~ Quick and Easy Recipe

Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes just like Grandma use to make, easy cupcake recipes, fruit cupcakes, dessert recipes

When I was little my Grandma always made pineapple upside down cake,  the smell of sweet cake filled your lungs as soon as you walked in the door.   Grandma made everything from scratch, and I do not think I could ever recreate the exact ewwy gooey goodness she made.  But these cupcakes are a fast and easy copycat version that make me think of and remember the happy memories of my childhood.

Yields: 24 cupcakes

Ready in 45 minutes

Ingredients:
1?2 cup butter, melted
1 1?2 cups brown sugar
24 maraschino cherries
2 (20 ounce) cans crushed pineapple
1 box of yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1 1/3 cups pineapple juice
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Directions:
1. Move an oven rack into the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Grease 24 muffin cups.
3. Line a work surface with waxed paper
4. Spoon 1 teaspoon melted butter into the bottom of each muffin cup.
5. Spoon 1 tablespoon brown sugar in each muffin cup.
6. Press a maraschino cherry into the center of the brown sugar in each muffin cup.
7. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of crushed pineapple over the cherry and compact it with the back of a spoon into an even layer.
8. Mix yellow cake mix, eggs, pineapple juice and vegetable oil in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened, about 30 seconds. Turn mixer speed to medium and mix for 2 minutes.
9. Pour cake batter into the muffin cup, filling them to the top; do not overfill.
10. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
11. Allow cupcakes to cool at least 5 minutes before inverting muffin cups onto the wax paper to release. Serve with pineapple and cherry sides up.

4th of july recipe, Ice Cream Sandwich. Quick and easy treat for a hot summers day

 PIN IT here.

The 4th of July is one of my kids favorite holidays. But it is often one of the hottest days of the year, so I came up with these COOL TREATS that taste good and look patriotic as well.  They take less than a minute to make . You can make them ahead of time and put them in a cookie sheet in your freezer, or make them right before you serve them.

4th of july recipe, Ice Cream Sandwich. Quick and easy treat for a hot summers day

All you need is some red, white and blue sprinkles and a box of ice cream sandwiches.  I bought the mini ones at Walmart.  My kids are still small and the mini ice cream sandwiches seem to be a better portion size for them.  Pour the sprinkles on to a plate, unwrap the ice cream sandwich and roll the edges into the sprinkles.

Simple as that you have an adorable treat to serve at your family BBQ.

 These are so simple to make even children can make them. I rolled them, but let my kids dump the sprinkles on the plate,  they thought it was a blast.   I found the sprinkles at my local Michaels Craft store.  But you can also order them online, sprinkles on Amazon. You can get the  Wilton 710-786 Spring Patriotic Food Color Mix for under $4 shipped FREE.
