Corn Spoon Bread

This moist and cheesy corn spoon bread pairs perfectly with your favorite chili or hearty soup, and it couldn’t be easier to make.

Corn Spoon Bread

Yesterday I gave you a cornmeal pizza crust topped with BBQ chicken and cheese. Today I present to you a corn spoon bread. Two savory recipes in a row, I know it’s unusual but I’m suddenly bursting with savory recipes. I blame football season (not that I am upset about it) and every store throwing fall in my face.

This corn spoon bread gets it’s name because it is so moist that you may needing to eat it with a spoon. Not surprising if you look at the ingredient list: eggs, corn muffin mix, kernel corn, creamed corn, sour cream, butter, and cheese. It is perfect served along side of chili or your favorite hearty soup for fall. Or just chow down on it because there’s no resisting a good corn bread, especially when it is topped with cheese.

Mini Reese’s-Oreo Cheesecakes

Reese’s and Oreo lovers unite! These mini Reese’s-Oreo cheesecakes not only have bits of peanut butter cup Oreo in them, but also as the crust. Top it off with a peanut butter-chocolate ganache.

Mini Reeses-Oreo Cheesecakes 1

As you may have noticed I love trying all the different kinds of Oreos they come out with. I stand by my belief that peanut butter Oreos were the best flavor ever. As such when I spotted the Reese’s peanut butter cup ones they jumped into my shopping basket. Their filling is half chocolate/half peanut butter giving them the flavor of a peanut butter cup sandwiched between chocolate Oreo cookies.

When I decided to chop them up and mix them into cheesecake I thought about making the cheesecake peanut butter flavored, but instead let the Oreos shine through on their own (not that I would’ve argued with more peanut butter). With Oreos as the crust, pieces in the cheesecake, and a peanut butter-chocolate ganache there’s nothing missing.

Blueberry Kale Smoothie

Not all healthy smoothies have to be green. Blueberries mask the green kale in this delicious smoothie.

Blueberry Kale Smoothie 1

Well. Last night’s game stunk. I scared the cat with my cries of anguish as I watched the painful 4 hour game, losing to an unranked Virginia Tech. I have to say they played extremely well for an unranked team. And Ohio State made a lot of mistakes. Guess if you have to lose, better to do it at the beginning of the season. But anyway, this is s food blog not sports so I’ll get on with it haha.

Want to know the trick to making the green color from healthy green stuff magically disappear? Apparently all you have to do is add blueberries. Believe it or not there is a full, packed cup of kale in this smoothie and only 1/2 cup of blueberries, yet all you see is this pretty purple smoothie. If you look closely you can see little flecks of green but who gets up close and personal with their smoothie? Drink up and feel good about it.

Nutty Edamame Dip

This nutty dip resembles the texture and versatility of hummus with a different flavor twist – edamame. 

Nutty Edamame Dip 1

If you are into college football then you are as excited as I am about tomorrow! Well you may be more excited than I am actually because upon hearing of the injury of the Ohio State QB’s shoulder I deflated a bit. However, that won’t stop me from watching all the games I can lay my eyes on and whipping up appetizers and desserts made of peanut butter and chocolate. Which means for the next several weeks PB+Choc Saturdays are back! Even if you don’t like college football you can appreciate from peanut butter and chocolate goodness. But that’s tomorrow.

Being the day before the game I decided it was a good time to post an appetizer recipe. Maybe I’ll make it a thing, “App Friday”. The first dip up for grabs is one that reminds me of hummus but instead of pureed chick peas it is edamame which creates a pretty green color. Different flavor of course, but just as versatile of a spread/dip. Chips, veggies, crackers, whatever you can find to scoop it up!

Salted Caramel Ice Cream Pie 2

The kick off of Ice Cream Week just so happens to land on National Ice Cream Pie Day and obviously I took the opportunity to make an ice cream pie. A salted caramel ice cream pie complete with a pretzel crust.

I know that dulce de leche technically is not caramel but it does have a caramelized flavor. I have recently become obsessed with no-churn ice cream and since it is made with sweetened condensed milk I decided that dulce de leche was the perfect choice for making a caramel-like no-churn ice cream. After all, you can make dulce de leche by cooking sweetened condensed milk while it’s still in the can. And this ice cream pie tasted pretty darn good to me!

Peach-Mango Smoothie

Peach-mango smoothie made with fresh fruit, nectar and Greek yogurt. So good you’ll think you are having dessert.

Peach-Mango Smoothie

Today is the day before my interview in Memphis, so naturally I arrived to town a day early in order to run the Bardog 5K with Maggie this morning! In all the time I lived in Memphis I never managed to participate in this 5K, something always got in the way. But there’s nothing stopping me now and since I don’t like eating a heavy breakfast before running any distance lets make a smoothie.

This smoothie may be my new favorite. Unfortunately with peach season nearing its end it will have a short life unless I get desperate and use canned peaches. I bought both the peach and the mango fresh then cut and froze myself but of course you can buy pre-frozen. Blend them up with peach or mango nectar, honey and Greek yogurt and you’re done. I used peach Greek yogurt with mango nectar. Plain or vanilla Greek yogurt would work too if you want to tone down all that sweet fruit. I personally loved it.

S’mores Lasagna for One

Don’t worry about sharing with this s’mores lasagna for one. Made with layers of graham cracker, chocolate sweetened Greek yogurt, and graham crackers.

S'mores Lasagna for One 1

Happy National S’mores Day! Today is yet another fun food holiday that landed on a Sunday which means this dangerous little guy comes to you in single serving size.

The idea for this came from my chocolate peanut butter cup lasagna which was a huge hit. This s’mores version is a tiny bit healthier being made with Greek yogurt that has been sweetened slightly with cocoa powder and powdered sugar. The rest isn’t quite as healthy with marshmallow creme, graham crackers, mini marshmallows and a chocolate drizzle.

If made for a crowd this would great presented in a tall clear glass, better defining the layers. But since I know you’re just going to eat this while standing over the kitchen counter there’s no need to get all fancy.

Spicy Mustard & Sweet Potato Turkey Burgers

It’s burger month! Crank up your turkey burgers with spicy mustard and sweet potato, served with spicy mustard-mayo and a pretzel roll.

Burger Month

It’s burger month! A month-long celebration of all things burger hosted by Kita (Pass the Sushi & Girl Carnivore) and joined by 30 other bloggers including myself. Every day this month each one of us is sharing a different burger recipe and to make the deal even more delicious we’re hosting a giveaway with prizes to help get your burger on. Just use the Rafflecopter widget located at the bottom of this post.

My burger is actually a turkey burger. A turkey burger mixed with sweet potato and smokey chipotle mustard, topped with a smokey chipotle mustard-mayo, and served on a pretzel bun. While I was at it I marinaded some zucchini and yellow squash in a mixture of olive oil and the same spicy mustard to grill along with the burgers. You may be thinking that mustard in every component is over-kill but I assure you it is not. The mustard added a different kick of flavor to each part. Why not slather the mustard on the burger bun too while you’re at it?

Sour Patch Kids Cake

Get a serious sweet-and-sour fix with this Sour Patch Kids Cake. Lemon cake, lemon frosting and a ton of Sour Patch Kids!

Sour Patch Kids Cake 1

More new nephew (newphew?) news! His name is Griffin Watson, born at 10:46 pm on 7/1/14 (at least in California), and weighed in at 6lbs 11 oz, 20.5 inches. Here’s another cute picture my brother shared (CLICK HERE). I cannot wait to see a picture of Luke and Griffin together! To celebrate I am giving you cake. Sour Patch Kid covered cake to be exact. The cake itself is lemon flavored, as is the frosting, and is decorated with Sour Patch Kid gummies and covered in any remnant Sour Patch sweet-but-sour sugar that collected at the bottom of the bag. “First they’re sour, then they’re sweet” indeed. Hopefully Griffin will be mostly sweet rather than sour, just like his big brother :-).

Sour Patch Kids Cake 2

This cake was actually made for a friend’s birthday. As you can guess when he told me he loved citrus things and Sour Patch Kids I took him at his word and made a lemony-Sour Patch covered cake. And he loved it! The inside was actually rainbow colored just like the surprise-rainbow lemon cake I shared awhile back (the method for creating that design ends up making 2 full cakes) which made it even more fun. The recipe here however does not reflect that method as I have left that secret to be discovered in the Surprise-Inside Cakes cookbook. If you haven’t checked it out yet you must!

Caramelized Onion Dip

Sweet and tangy caramelized onions shine in this dip. Pair with you favorite vegetables or chips for a perfect party appetizer. 

Caramelized Onion Dip 1

A few weeks ago some friends and I stayed at a cabin in the Smoky Mountains and for dinner we put together some homemade pizzas. As topping for one we were caramelizing onions – or so we thought. As I took a turn stirring the onions I noticed that they were pretty dry and had a chalky white residue. A couple more stirs and the end of the spatula broke off. Evidently it was not a heat proof spatula and it had been melting into the onions the entire time. I have not seen a non-heat proof spatula in years and it didn’t occur to any of us to check it to be sure. Alas those onions were tossed out but we still made some amazing pizzas.

Rest assured that when I cooked the caramelized onions for this dip, I used the proper tools. Thank goodness too because this dip was so much more than I has imagined. It knocks the pants off of any dip you could buy from the grocery store. Dare I say, the best onion dip I’ve ever had.
