Cinnamon Pull Apart bread recipe

cinnamon pull apart bread   My friend Donnie Currie is writing a fabulous book all about bread and it’s finally ready to be pre-orered on amazon! In celebration of this huge accomplishment I whipped up a little recipe for you to try while you check out her book on amazon!  I am a bread kind of girl. I eat, sleep and dream in bread! If you have never made yeast bread before and are afraid to try, try out this recipe! I bet you will be successful and your family will thank you! It’s a classic cinnamon roll recipe but in a fantastic pull apart design. I used my favorite Good Cook loaf pan. I used 1 mini pan and 1 large pan. I have lots of little fingers in my house so I thought the mini pan would be perfect for them. Oh who am I kidding I wanted the big loaf all to myself! Donna’s book is called “Make Ahead Bread”. Here is a little snippet from here book: “The make-ahead bread concept focuses on a long, slow rise, so that the dough rests for a day or two, allowing it to develop flavor (called fermentation by pro bakers). This means that home cooks no longer have to be a slave to their kitchen when they have dough resting. Instead, they could be at work, playing with their kids, sleeping—or doing anything they want.” Screen Shot 2014-02-15 at 12.44.14 PM Go here to pre-order her book! All pre orders will receive a free loaf pan with purchase! If you order before February 28th, go to this link here and put in your info to get your free loaf pan! But it get’s even better!

Did you know July is national picnic month?I have the perfect on the go salad you can take on the next picnic you are planning featuring Starkist Tuna Creations! comes in a variety of flavors (Herb and Garlic, Ranch, Hickory Smoked, Lemon Pepper, and Sweet and Spicy)and is a source of lean protein, that is a convenient inclusion to any on-the-go activity. All StarKist products are available at grocery stores nationwide.

What I love about these packets is they are ready to eat to bring them wherever you need and there is no need to cook them! Plus I am obsessed with all these flavors! I used the lemon pepper with this recipe but any of the flavors would have been delicious! 

My husband had been on a work trip for the past 2 weeks and came over feeling bloated and yucky from eating out so much. I made him this salad and he LOVED it! It feels pretty good to take care of your man by cooking for him with the help of Starkist Tuna Creations!

Wild Oats Organic foods NOW at Walmart with GREAT prices!

 *I was sent these samples free of charge but all opinions are my own.

 green chili    

I know lots of my friends say they want to eat organic foods but they are just to expensive but with the help of Wild Oats and Walmart, that is going to be a thing of the past!

Wild Oats is a organic food company that is making it easier for everyone to be able to eat organic foods. They are rolling out their brand of foods in Walmart and their prices are so amazing! Check out some of the prices here! 

I was sent a few sample to try out myself. I was sent Wild Oats Tortilla chips, black beans, chipolte hot sauce and bay leaves. I asked one of my friends recently if they could name “the” dish of Colorado, what would it be? Being from Louisiana I can quickly think of a few dish contenders but for Colorado, we were stumped….and then we decided it had to be green chili! If I wasn’t on a diet and trying not to eat dairy, I would have added some heavy cream and cheese but since I am, this is the PERFECT one pot meal, low on calories, healthy and delcious! It took me 5 minutes to throw in the crockpot, and we had dinner for the night!

Walmart, the nation’s Largest Grocer Works with Organics Pioneer to Relaunch Brand and Save Customers 25 Percent or More on Organic Groceries. I love to eat organic food and serve them to my family as well and the only deterrent sometimes is the price. I was looking at a bag a organic flour. It was $11 for 15lbs, then I looked over to the 50lb bag or regular flour that is only $9 and it made me sick because I know more people would buy organic if they could afford it!

Originally introduced in 1987, Wild Oats will relaunch at Walmart starting this month with a new, more affordable price point on quality products covering a broad variety of categories – from salsa and pasta sauce to quinoa and chicken broth. Customers will save 25 percent or more when comparing Wild Oats to national brand organic products.

When I lived in Little Rock, AR I shopped at a Wild Oats Market and loved it! They had great food at great prices and I am so excited to see them teaming up with my BFF Walmart! 

Check out these products next time you are at Walmart and let me know what you think!

4th of July Fruit dip recipe

*Terry Eakle winner of the flash giveaway! You have 24 hours to message me on Facebook!

4th of July Fruit dip
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup whipped cream
  • Fruit to dip in dip.
Instructions
  1. Beat cream cheese, powered sugar, and vanilla until fluffy. Fold in whipped cream.

 I totally forgot about this recipe until Good Cook sent me this brand new Pro FRESHionals cut fruit bowl and asked me to come up with a recipe to go along with the bowl. I remember making this years ago and honestly eating an entire bowl of it, so I dig up my old cookbook and found this!

It’s so easy to make….in fact I just got back from a wedding shower and made this for the shower. But if your having a 4th of july bash, this is a must make! You can do everything ahead of time except cut the bananas. Cut up your watermelon and blueberries. I put my blueberries in a little baggy so they wouldn’t be hard to find. Whip up your  fruit dip, but make sure to but up your bananas right before it’s time to eat so they won’t turn brown!

What makes this bowl so amazing, is not only is it super cute and actually looks like a watermelon but it has a nice lid so if you need to transport your fruit and it keeps your fruit fresher, longer since it keeps the cut up from away from any juice the fruit might make.  

Fresh fruit is now in season so take advantage and get this bowl for yourself from Bed, Bath and Beyond to keep your fruit fresh and delicious for longer.

You can use any type of chocolate chips. I just had some easter ones on hand but dark chocolate or white chocolate would also be yummy!

IMG_3721  
I had a little helper and he talked me into a pile for the recipe and a pile for himself. How convenient right?!

Of course if you are not dieting, go ahead and throw some chocolate chips in the adult version but since I am I took them out. My little girl loved them because they had pink chips in them.

Tacos in a bag idea

 Winner of the name your favorite chip Kira Pilgrim! You have 24 hours to email me at thewasherfamily at iCloud.com or message me right on Facebook!

tacos in a bag  

My kids and I are constant picnickers even if it’s in our backyard. So this recipe is life changing to me! A lot of you were laughing at me on Facebook the other day because I posted a picture of me and my kids at field day with my gazillion bags, strollers, umbrella, ect. So this is the type of recipe I need. An all one time type situation!

You can use whichever your kids like and tailor them according to your needs. I have 1 kid that won’t eat lettuce so we all knew which one his was. Plus I can sneak in some veggies like tomatoes, and they didn’t notice because they thought it was so fun eating out of this bag!

I had this idea at about 7pm at night and all the kids were asleep so I hopped on over to #Walmarttogo and ordered all the ingredients below! It was delivered the next day to my house, right on time, actually they were early which was awesome! If I have any cat herders reading this you know it’s a tough job and taking 4 kids to the store is just that…cat herding at it’s finest.Being able to order the food I need, when I want and have it delivered at the time that is convenient for me is just another reason why I love Walmart to go so much!

Mini Crawfish Pies with Good Cook’s Bake a Bowl

 Tracy Barfield winner of the name that pie “crawfish pie” giveaway. Winner has 24 hours to email me at thewasherfamily at iCloud.com or message right on Facebook!

*I am a Good Cook Kitchen Expert and was sent a bake a bowl at no charge but all opinions are my own.

crawfish pie bowls   

I went sent a Good Cook Bake a Bowl and tasked to me a delicious dish with the pan. I decided on mini crawfish pies and boy does it remind me of home! You can use fresh or frozen crawfish. The only place I could find ANY kind of crawfish in Colorado was walmart. I found just the frozen tails and whole frozen crawfish. If your not a big crawfish fan you can always use shrimp and this dish will still be delicious!

For my readers, you can score 25% off this pan. Just go here to shop! 

 IMG_3426 

This pan is so versatile and can be used for sweet or savory dishes. Most of my Good Cook cohorts were using it to make sweet dishes so I opted for savory but check out the linky below for TONS Of recipes and ways to use this pan. 

What is so awesome about the pan is it comes with a top and bottom. You spray the bottom pan and the bottom of the top pan because when you bake the crust, you set the top pan over the bottom. This way it ensures your pie crusts don’t puff up to much in the middle so you can stuff as much as the crawfish goodness as possible!

Cup of Milk Cookies recipe and my second #walmarttogo order experience

 

As a participant in the Walmart to Go First program, I’ve received a personal invite and incentives for my time and efforts in creating this post.



Today I received delivery #2 for #walmarttogo!

It went just as good as the first time! If you missed my first post, go here!

I reserved my time from 8am-10am and they arrived at 9:45. This delivery man was just so nice and so was my last one so they are winning me over with customer service! 

The one thing different about this order was I got a recipe in my head that I wanted to make the night before. I had worked on a recipe last week that I have not yet posted and that recipe gave me another idea for an amazing recipe! Problem is I was missing some items that I needed from the recipe so I got online around 5pm last night, filled out my order like last time (if you need instructions, go here), and the next morning I had my items! 
Walmart To Go saved me time and money! Have you ever been to the store with kids?? Every single time I get talked into buying extra things for them so if I order online I definitely save money.

No need to rush to the store since I was in no rush to make this recipe but I also had no bone in my body that felt like dragging 4 kids to the store for just a couple things. Are you ready to see what I have been cooking up???

So you know how everyone likes milk and cookies but instead of having cookies and a cup of milk, why not make cookies that are your cup of milk!

cup of milk cookies 

Here is how you make them and recipe is below!

IMG_1582 

Follow the recipe below then get our your favorite mason jars. I uses mini ones. I started by greasing the cup, then putting some sugar in the bottom and all around. Then I started with the bottom and put some cookie down. You can use use flour instead of sugar but I tried both and the sugar looked prettier.

IMG_1583 

This is the type of jar I used. I didn’t go all the way up the side because I was afraid it would crumble when I tried to take it out. I went a little over halfway up.

IMG_1588 

Once I took them out of the oven I immediately pushed the middles back down so there was room for the milk!

IMG_1589 

In order for the milk not to leak out, you have to have some type of barrier so I melted some chocolate and poured it in the cup and let it dry. This created a barrier so the milk wouldn’t leak out. But this won’t hold up forever so as soon as you pour the milk get ready to drink!

Cookie cups & Milk
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ½ cup shortening
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • Mix last ingredients together then fold in chocolate chips. I like the milk chocolate and white chocolate.
  • For the middle of the cookie:
  • white chocolate bark
Instructions
  1. Turn oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix ingredients together then fold in chocolate chips. I like the milk chocolate and white chocolate.
  3. Grease a small mason jar then sprinkle sugar in the bottom and all around the sides.
  4. Put in cookie dough on the bottom then spread up the sides. It needs to be sort of thin but thick enough so the milk isn’t falling through holes and the cookie can hold up when you take it out of the jar.
  5. Be sure to over bake rather than undertake because the cookie will fall apart if you undertake.
  6. Bake 10 or so minutes or until whole cookie in jar is brown.
  7. Take it out and immediately run a knife around the outside so it doesn’t stick to the sides.
  8. If the middle has puffed up, push it back down with a spoon so there is a whole in the middle for the milk.
  9. Let cool for about 10 minutes.
  10. Once it’s not piping hot, try to get it out of the jar. Before careful because I had a few fall apart or not come all the way out.
  11. Once you get the cookie out of the jar and it’s cool, melt some chocolate.
  12. Pour some chocolate in the cookie cup and let harden. You are making a barrier so the milk doesn’t spill out.
  13. You can even put it in the freezer for a few minutes to let the chocolate harden.
  14. Once the chocolate is hardened, pour in some milk and enjoy!!

Another thing I decide to try with this order was meat and vegetables. I know the trucks they deliver on are temperature controlled but I like to be sure my meats stay cold! I order some refrigerated chicken and some frozen chicken. Both came as cold as they would have been if I had gone to the store and got them myself!

I also got some avocado’s and those looked great as well! No complaints here!

This is a rarely new service so if your store does not offer this yet, keep checking back, they might offer it in the future.

See the chicken is EXTREMELY frozen! Just the way I like my frozen meats!

And if you try my Cup of Milk Cookies let me know if it works for you!

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe.

 cauliflower pizza 

I’ve said it before but I really mean it this time, I am on my way to loosing this baby weight! I haven’t been blogging about it because well…I haven’t lost anything! I lost around 30 pounds when I had the baby but come on, at least 20 of that is just baby. So here I am, it’s almost summer so time to step it up. I have an addiction to cards and sugar so I am trying to cut those out first. I’ve lost 2 pounds this week so it must be working. 

Here is a super yummy recipe for Cauliflower crust pizza. If you squeeze enough water out of the cauliflower you can actually pick up the pieces of pizza! If you don’t get enough water out it kind of falls apart. This cuts down the calories and carbs you would eat with a normal pizza but tastes so good you won’t even miss them!

 IMG_1528 

 I have a small food processor so I had to pulse in batches. 1 head can make 1 pizza crust.

IMG_1529 

I had a little help from my friends…

IMG_1530 

This is what it should look like once you have pulsed it.

IMG_1531 

Bake it once to get most of the water out. 

IMG_1532 

Once you bake it once, put the “dough” in a bowl covered with cheese cloth. Squeeze out water.

Turn oven to 450. Line baking sheet with wax paper. Put dough on wax paper. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until brown.

Top with your sauce, cheese and toppings, and put back into over until cheese is melted. It should only take 5 or so minutes. pizza

Easter Egg Nest

egg  

My mom came over this weekend to babysit my kids so me and my husband could go out on a date and a hot one at that because let’s me honest anything out of the house with no kids is smokin!

She made these Egg Nests with my little one’s and they had the best time making them with her. I remember growing up and dying easter eggs so throw in some yummy bread and sprinkles and you got yourself a fantastic time!

IMG_1461 

First time my kids have ever dyed eggs! Make SURE you get the ones that have the label “food safe dye”. Some do not have this label so I would not use it.

IMG_1465

Here is the rub. You can make these 1 of 2 ways. The first way is you can hard boil these eggs, dye them, make the nests then once the nests are cooked, just set the eggs on top. If your going for appearance, I would choose that way.

Way #2. Dye the eggs (do not hard boil). Make the nests and before baking them set the eggs on top and the eggs will cook through while the bread cook. The only problem with these is the color can run a little while baking from the eggs and the eggs come out super hot so my kids couldn’t eat them right away. But it takes out the step of boiling them so if you are just going for fun, this way is a little faster.

Easter Egg Nest
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 can of crescent rolls
  • sprinkles (the round kind)
  • 1 egg dye kit (the food safe kind)
Instructions
  1. Unroll the crescents rolls and cut in long strips.
  2. Take 2 strips and braid together and form into a circle. 1 package makes about 5 nests.
  3. Beat 1 egg and brush all of the nests with the egg wash, then sprinkle with sprinkles.
