Baked cheese balls OK, so we did the experiment with the egg roll wrappers and string cheese to make baked cheese sticks and they turned out alright...but nothing to write home about. These, my friends, were not the same outcome. Yes, I used the leftover string cheese from the above recipe. Yes, I used the leftover mix of breading from my baked zucchini chips that I kept in an airtight container in the cupboard until I figured out what to do with it. And, yes, marrying those two ingredients together made the best homemade cheeseball I've made to date. Booyah! Cut your sticks into balls, dip in skim milk, and toss in the breading.... I actually don't know how long I baked them because I watched them the whole time thinking they were going to cheesily explode in the oven because how could the cheese not just melt instead of staying in between the teeniest layer of breading that I could barely see after I put them on the greased baking sheet? Don't mind the shadows in the pictures, they're irrelevant.

Crockpot Cube Steak and Gravy » The Post-It Place There are several meats that you can always find either on sale or marked down. That is chicken (either in drumsticks, quarters or thighs) and cube steak. The thing with cube steak is that it can be pretty tough. I make it several different ways but this is our all-time favorite. It is so tender it just falls apart with the stir of a wooden spoon. Crockpot Cube Steak and Gravy Cube steak (I used a family size pack) 2 cans (10.75 ounce size) cream of mushroom soup 1 envelope onion soup mix 3/4 cup water Salt and Pepper to taste Directions: Place all ingredients in a crock pot.

Soft & Chewy Sugar-Free Baked Granola Bars January 8, 2014Angela (Oh She Glows) The alternate title for these bars was: ultra dense, doughy, chewy, soft, seedy, hearty, protein-and-fibre-packed granola bars, sweetened naturally with dates! I can be a bit wordy at times. I didn’t feel like calling them “chia bread” though due to the sweetness; granola bars just seemed to make more sense in my brain.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Yum! Yummy, yummy. Yuuum! This is actually what stayed in my head after tasting these delicious cheesecake filled strawberries. And I think that it pretty much sums up what this whole experience was about… just PURE YUM! You SO have to try this! I can assure you that preparing this lovely summer treat is ultra-simple. All you need is about 2 pounds (1 kg) larger fresh strawberries, 8 ounce package (250 grams) cream cheese (softened), 4 tablespoons powdered sugar (depending on how sweet you want the filling), 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and about 1 ounce (30 grams) graham cracker (or butter cookie) crumbs. 1. 2. If you want to stand your strawberries upright (like in the picture) slice a bit off the bottom. Don’t they just look cute already? 3. 4. 5. … and fill the strawberries. Aaah! 6. 7. Another alternative is to dip the top in the crumbs. For some reason, I can perfectly imagine caramel sauce stepping into the game here. Enjoy! Love, Petra (The recipe was adapted from

Banana Bread Protein Bars Whenever my heart feels heavy, lost, or confused I tend to turn to the kitchen to distract myself. Seeking comfort in food isn’t as bad as those ridiculous diet magazines make it out to be. Food can bring us all together and make us pause to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
