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!

 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.

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.

Ingredients
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 can of crescent rolls
  • sprinkles (the round kind)

  4. Cook according to the package.
  5. While they are cooking, hard boil the eggs then let them cool. Then dye the remaining eggs according to the package.
  6. Let the nests cool then place eggs in nest and serve.

This is what the graham cracker dough should look like once you mix all the ingredients. 

IMG_1330   

Form your dough in balls and 1 into each cavity in the mold then press to cover all the molds.

IMG_1332 

I got my dough scraper, along with the help of my 4 year old because cutting graham crackers is tough! The squares are the perfect size for s’mores and the mold has the pre-cut lines where you need to cut! Also sprinkle a little sugar on top because it brings out the shape of the molds on the crackers.

In order to make my S’mores I turned on the broiler and put 1 square along with 3 pieces of chocolate then 1 marshmallow and heated until the chocolate was melted and marshmallow were gooey. Top with another graham cracker and chow down!

Gorton’s Spicy Fish Taco’s and a giveaway!

 *I was given Gorton’s free item coupons and a cutting board free of charge but all opinions are my own.

spicy taco  

Have you tried Gorton’s products lately? I have gotten bored with my regular dinner rotation so this week I picked up some Gorton’s Garlic and Herb fillets which a seriously yummy by themselves but I decide to whip up some fish tacos.

And not only are these fish taco’s amazing but I slipped in some spicy avocado dressing may which sent them over the top!

IMG_0026 

First I cut up some potatoes into long strips, basically french fry length. Turn your over up to 400 degrees.

IMG_0027 

Bake the potato’s on a baking sheet and pour a little oil over the potato’s, plus some italian seasoning and some cajun seasoning if you need some spice. Bake until brown and a little crispy, around 20-30 minutes.

IMG_0025 

Next cut up some bell peppers, and onions and caramelize in a pan. It should only take around 10 minutes for the onions to get brown. Cook them in a little butter so they don’t burn.

IMG_0030 

Next cut up 1 whole avocado and put in a bowl. Then add 2 T mayo and put a little siracha sauce on top. I ended up putting twice as much siracha as this because we like spicy.

IMG_0032 

Cook your Gorton’s Garlic and Herb fillet’s according to the package. Once those are done cooking assemble taco’s. I put a strip of the spicy avocado dressing first, them the potato’s, peppers and onions and 2 fillets of fish on top. Talk about good!

Mrs. Kay’s Duck Commander Gumbo

 mrs. kay's gumbo 

I love a good gumbo and this past weekend I made one for our Zatarain’s house party! I made it a day before because gumbo us always better the 2nd day or even 3rd if it last that long :-) This recipe calls for duck but I didn’t have any on hand so I used chicken and sausage. The rouxe I made turned out a little light but tasted delicious. When making your roux there is a fine line of making a good one and burning it and I was afraid mine was burning so I quite cooking it. I could have made mine a shade darker and it would have been fine but this tasted so good it didn’t matter!

I grew up eating Mrs. Kay’s Duck Gumbo and it has become a family favorite. She is one of the sweetest, most generous women I have ever met and it doesn’t hurt she is one of he best cooks too!

Cinnamon Pull Apart bread recipe

 We have a winner! Elaine Jones will of the name that food “cupcake” giveaway for a mystery kitchen tool! Winner has 24 hours to email me through this site or message me right on Facebook! Congrats!

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.”

Elvis Ice Cream recipe

The winner of the name that food giveaway “What was Elvis’s favorite food”? Sara Sweatman! You have 24 hours to email or message me through FB to claim your prize!

elvis ice cream 

Did you know Elvis Presley’s favorite food was a peanut butter and banana sandwhich? This is a fun take on that classic favorite of the King’s but WAY more healthy. 

I am trying to loose this baby weight but my sugar cravings are getting the best of me. I decided to come up with a recipe I could eat at night or as a snack and curb but sweet tooth but fill me up! I remember my mom telling me about this recipe and I scoffed thinking it wouldn’t be that good. I mean it’s no Bluebell ice cream but I really enjoyed it!

I made this for my kids and they LOVED it. If you are not a big peanut butter fan, just omit the peanut butter. This will freeze but it gets pretty hard and doesn’t taste as good as when it is first whipped. Also it will turn brown so you need to eat it as soon as you make it.

Comment below if you make this! It’s become a new favorite for me!
