Turtle Burgers, Anyone? I got an email today with directions on how to make Turtle Burgers, and I am still laughing about it! Crazy, right? Not to mention a heart attack waiting to happen. Next time you want to grill hamburgers and hot dogs, put them together, slap some bacon on them and create these, um, delicious turtles. Here are the directions as stated in the email: Handmade ground beef patties, topped with sharp cheddar cheese, wrapped in a bacon weave, then the next step, add hotdogs as the heads, legs with slits for toes and tail. Ooooh sounds yummy! Avocado Egg Salad « Relishing It Before Radd and I had kids, there would be nights that we weren’t able to have dinner together. School, work, and friends sometimes just got in the way of sitting down for a full meal with each other. Now if I happened to be home on one of those nights, there was absolutely no doubt about what my dinner plan would be– egg salad. Wild, right? You see, I was never able to make egg salad for the both of us because– and I still don’t understand this– Radd despises hard-boiled eggs. Here, I’ve swapped out mayonnaise for a mashed avocado. The Recipe: Avocado Egg Salad (Serves 1) 2 hard-boiled eggs, diced, preferably organic/local 1/2 ripe avocado, mashed 1 1/2 tablespoons red onion, diced 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely chopped juice of 1/4 of a small lemon kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper How to make perfect hard-boiled eggs: In a sauce pan, place the eggs in a single layer. Have a wonderful weekend, friends! Laurie Like this: Like Loading...
rainbow cake - The Domestic Mama & The Village CookThe Domestic Mama & The Village Cook - the soon to be four year olds answer to “What kind of cake do you want for your birthday?” My warning to all of you thinking of attempting this process. Hire a dishwasher if you don’t have one. Because you’re going to mess up a lot of dishes. Don’t do it when you’re stressed about a hurricane that may make landfall on your house. Now, this cake was a teeny bit daunting. Okay… you can see how many dishes it dirtied up, too: That was just part of it. Now: how about some naked pictures? Get your mind out of the gutter. Another thing about this cake- I doubled the recipe… not sure why…and weighed my batter. 24 ounces I had. So… when I give you this recipe. You know what I’m saying… As for the dolphins… they were so easy. My little one also had her very first day of pre-school the day after her birthday. What did I do the first three hours? It’s amazing how big three hours seems right now. rainbow cake Author: adapted from the Fannie Farmer Baking Book Recipe type: dessert,cake

Cheesecake-stuffed strawberries I put a slightly different version of these on my Easter Menu, but I’ve changed them up a bit. With the help of my strawberry huller – I’m not a gadget gal, but this one is worth having — these are a cinch to prepare. I took these up to school for Teacher Appreciation week and was blushing at the compliments. Do you think they knew how ridiculously easy these are? Cheesecake-Stuffed Strawberries 24 large strawberries, hulls removed 12 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar (add gradually, to taste) 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs Place cream cheese in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds, or until soft. Use a sharp knife to make a hole in the center of each strawberry (going as deep as you can without hitting bottom). Spoon or pipe the filling into each hole.

Banana Nut Monkey Bread I think the combination of bananas, nuts, cinnamon and sugar are just perfect. Especially in the morning hours. That’s the sort of thing I like to think about as I’m falling asleep the night before… “… tomorrow morning. That was me falling asleep. This was a grand idea, and was enjoyed by most in my household this morning. Live and learn. Unless I’m having a prideful day… then I’m just plain upset when a recipe isn’t perfect the first time. So if you’re going to give this a try stick with the recipe below, I’ve already added in a few tweaks that I think will enhance the final dish. Banana Nut Monkey Bread, makes 6-7 servings. Needed: 2 cans biscuits (the non-flaky kind), 1 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 2 sticks butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 ripe bananas and 2 cups nuts (I used chopped walnuts). In a gallon size zip lock bag combine the sugar and cinnamon. You want all the pieces to get fully coated by the cinnamon sugar. Slice up the bananas. xo.
