Frozen Yogurt Dots

Frozen Yogurt Dots
Here it is…another installment of Jillee’s Favorite Frozen Treats! Everytime I see an idea for a new frozen treat idea…I can hardly WAIT to try it! This one was NO exception! Saw this on Pinterest and knew it was MADE JUST FOR ME! :-) As much as I love the Frozen Yogurt Pops that I posted about a couple of weeks ago and have since probably eaten at least a dozen of! Oh and they freeze SUPER FAST! Never miss a good thing!

Homemade Nutella I was an exchange student (ah how many times I've said this sentence...) 5 years ago in the US. I'm not gonna talk about how it was (AMAZING) but then and there I gained sisters! Now I have one living in the States and one living in Germany. And next week we are gonna be reunited! I can't wait, I am so excited! So this week I am going to Germany and was thinking what I should bring. BUT today I tried my homemade Nutella. If that hasn't convinced you to make some now, then I will tell you, it is SO easy to make! Homemade Nutella makes for 3 jars 200 g Hazelnuts 1 can Condensed Milk 255 g Chocolate - the darker the better 1/2 cup hot Milk Roast the hazelnuts for about 10-15 minutes either in the oven or in a dry pan over the heat. When the nuts are ready put them on a tray or a magazine and let them cool down a little. Once they are not hot anymore, place them in the food processor and start processing them. It will be quite a while, if you don't have a very professional machine, like me.

Spaghetti With Garlic, Olive Oil, and Chili Flakes Translated: spaghetti with garlic, oil, and chili pepper flakes. This is the kind of meal that makes you stop and think that the simplest foods are often the most wonderful. With only a few ingredients that are staples in most pantries, you can create a beautiful, flavorful, heartwarming meal from scratch. Spaghetti aglio, olio, e peperoncino is a traditional Italian pasta dish. It packs quite a kick from the minced garlic and chili pepper flakes, and I highly suggest enjoying this dish with fellow garlic lovers. The pasta is the real star in this meal, as it's not drenched in heavy, overbearing sauce. Ingredients 7 ounces spaghetti 2 large or 3 small garlic cloves, minced 1 1/2 teaspoons of chili pepper flakes 1/4 to 1/3 cup of extra-virgin olive oil 3/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper Directions The measurements in this recipe can be shifted depending on your taste preferences.

Ridiculously Easy I mean it. Easy. E…..Z…. Peach Crunch Cake. You need some sliced peaches in syrup. Just dump them in a 13 X 9 dish. Note: this can also be called a dump cake. Cut the peaches into smaller pieces and you can distribute them more evenly. Next up, you need a yellow cake mix. Sprinkle it right over the top of the peaches. Keep sprinkling until it’s all covered up. Then layer 1 stick of butter right on the top. For some reason this photo makes me smile. And this really makes me smile. Oh this is looking good. Finally, add some chopped walnuts. Here ’tis from the top and again from the side. Bake it at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes and voila… Peach crunch cake. Some for me… Some more for me… Good alone… good warm… good cold… and Good warm with something cold. Yum. Peach Crunch Cake 24.5 oz jar of sliced peaches in light syrup 1 package yellow cake mix 1 stick butter (1/2 cup), cut into 16 pieces 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup chopped walnuts Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Enjoy! See, that was easy. Go.

Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread Kids can be frustratingly picky eaters. They can also have highly entertaining quirks. My niece used to ask for pepperoni pizza and then proceed to discard all of the pepperoni. But don’t you dare suggest that she order plain cheese pizza! Un-Pepperoni Pizza. But when you wrap pepperoni pizza into a fun, savory, pull-apart style bread, it’s no longer “icky” pepperoni pizza. I’ve had these Pizza Bites bookmarked for ages, so when I finally found an excuse to make them, I wanted to take it in a slightly different direction: a savory monkey bread. A very light coating of garlicky butter-covered pepperoni pizza bites, piled into a bundt cake pan, makes for a very fun Pepperoni Pizza. Or Pepperoni Un-Pizza. You can take the long route and make your favorite pizza dough and marinara sauce, or the short route and pick up your favorite pizza dough and red sauce from the store. Ingredients Instructions Heat garlic and butter over medium heat just until the garlic begins to brown. Notes

Tut Tuesday: Lemon Dessert Bowls - The Proper Pinwheel : The Proper Pinwheel What up what up? Did you enjoy your Monday? I sure did. I flew home early in the morning and then just kicked back and watched the rain smother our grass. Just kidding. I didn’t get to kick back, but it was still nice to have the moisture.
