Homemade Eggnog. I have been making this granola recipe for over five years.

Homemade Eggnog

You know a recipe is gold when you keep going back to it after trying many others. Sure, it's fun to try new recipes and flavors. But somehow I always return to this tried and true granola. It really can't be beat for its simple, hearty, wonderful flavor. Waaaay back in 2009 I first posted about this recipe on Cooking for Seven. And so I felt that I should share this recipe with ya'll again. And in the style of Top With Cinnamon, I had to share a gif of Reuben pouring milk over the granola. The Best Granola Recipe Ingredients: 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats1 cup of shredded or chipped coconut1 cup nuts of choice, coarsely chopped (I love pecans)1/4 teaspoon real salt1/2 cup (1 stick) butter1/4 cup honey1/4 cup pure maple syrup1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract1 cup dried fruits (cranberries, cherries, apricots, raisins, dates, etc.), optional (I usually leave these out) Directions: 1) Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 C).

Instant coffee recipes: Hot Drinks. Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip. It seems that I may be a little addicted to hot cheesy dips.

Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Last week I made a hot sweet onion dip and while I was looking for recipes for it I came across some recipes for hot spinach and artichoke dip. This new dip filled with cheese, cream cheese and mayonnaise sounded so good that I had to try it right away. But, with both spinach and artichokes in it, it is just a little bit healthier. ;) One of the things that I liked about this recipe was that I would get to use artichokes again and I had been looking forward to doing so.

The last time I used fresh artichokes and this time I got to try canned ones. This dip is super easy to make; you just mix all of the ingredients and bake until bubbling and golden brown on top. This recipe appears in the Game Day Party Food eCookbook along with 19 more of the tasiest snacks on Closet Cooking and 5 all new drool inducing treats!

Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip Servings: makes 4 servings Printable Recipe Ingredients Directions. Halloween Jello Shots. Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots. When thinking of Super Bowl foods strawberries don't usually make the cut.

Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shots

However... mix the strawberries with a little tequila and turn them into a margarita and you are getting closer! With our sunny Citrus Blush already mixed and in the pitcher we weren't really in need of another cocktail, but when I came across these cute little shots I couldn't resist putting them on my Super Bowl Extravaganza Table. Hollowed out strawberries work as a vehicle for a Jell-0 concoction of strawberry gelatin, tequila and a touch of Grand Marnier. Garnished with cute little wedges of lime these little shots are absolutely adorable!

Strawberry season here in San Diego is a tad behind schedule and I had a bit of trouble finding those beautiful, plump and bright red berries, but we made do with the Farmer's Market offerings and found some that were good enough. The gelatin is mixed with water, 4 oz of tequila and 2 oz of Grand Marnier. Skittles Vodka. Vodka-infused Gummi Bears.
