Are you familiar with Cookie Butter? It’s so so good. I mean so good. But know what’s even better? Cookie Butter in Rice Krispie Treats. Yup brilliant right?

super yummy cookie butter rice krispies treats recipe

I did it on a whim one day and really we can’t go back. It gives the classic dessert just a little something extra special. You should try it. But you should invite people over first or else you might end up eating them all on your own.

Great last minute gift idea massage gift card plus yummy cookie butter treats

My husband really loves them. And all my husband really wants for Father’s day is sleep. I can’t blame him. That’s all I really want these days. Well that and maybe a shower that includes washing my hair. But unless Teddy decides to cooperate I don’t know if sleep is a gift I can give. But I figure a nice relaxing massage might be the next best thing. So I’m thinking delicious cookie butter goodness with a fabulous massage.

Super fast dessert idea. Cookie Butter treats recipe. We love this and make it all the time.

Chocolate Cookie Butter Rice Krispie Treats Recipe

  • 3 TBS Butter
  • 10 oz Marshmallows
  • 1-2 heaping TBS Cookie Butter
  • 1/4 C Chocolate Chips
  • 5 1/2 C Rice Krispies

Melt the butter in a large pot. Add the marshmallows and melt when almost fully melted add the cookie butter and chocolate. Stir until fully combined and melted. Remove from heat and stir in rice krispies.  Turn out onto a piece of wax paper.

Hands down the BEST way to make rice krispie treats. We won't use any other recipe from now on.

We like to swarm the warm lob of rice krispies but you can cut them into pieces and serve them like civilized people if you want ;)

best gift for when you don't know what to give a massage and tasty treat

If you have a dad that could use some relaxation this Father’s Day I highly recommend a batch of these yummy treats along with a Massage Envy gift card or better yet a membership. I just finished up my second massage with them and I am seriously never going back to life without regular massages. There’s so many things I love, the little break for me time, the literal working out of stress, and with the membership I kind of love that I “have to” go regularly. I mean I could postpone it but have it all there keeps me going and I NEED to go. I think so many of the dad’s out there could really love the gift of massage. Plus it’s such an easy gift :) And the rice krispies are seriously so easy too. I’m telling you it’s a winning combo. #MEUtah #ReliefStartsRightHere #MassageEnvyUtah

Oven Fried Chicken Recipe

Hands down the best oven fried chicken recipe. I make this for family dinner all the time and it turns out great.

I love fried food but I don’t love the mess of deep frying or to be honest all of the oil that can go into my food. That’s why my Oven Fried Chicken Recipe that I’m sharing today is one of my favorites.

This oven fried chicken recipe is super good. Turns out great all the time. Perfect for dinner.

It is so good and actually tastes like fried chicken but without all of the annoying things of traditional frying.

My go to weeknight dinner chicken recipe. This oven fried chicken turns out great every time

You can use any proportion of chicken to coating. The recipe is super forgiving. Really as long as you have enough to cover your chicken you’re good to go. For ease though I’m writing the recipe for 6 pieces but really you can add and divide if needed throw in extra as you go etc. The only thing to keep in mind is do NOT increase the about of butter you use. 1 TBS per dish is plenty even if you’re using a whole cut up chicken I’ve used as little as 1 tsp before and it turned out great but when I’ve done more than 1 TBS the chicken just doesn’t crisp up properly.

  • 6 Pieces Chicken Cut Up (I like thighs but you can use any cut you like)
  • 1/2 C Bisquick
  • 1/2 C Flour
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp Salt for coating
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 TBS Italian Seasoning
  • Garlic Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Once to temperature place an oven proof dish large enough for all the chicken to lay down in one layer with 1 TBS of butter.
  2. In a large bag combine Bisquick, flour, salt, onion powder, and Italian Seasoning. Shake to mix and set aside.
  3. Sprinkle chicken with garlic salt and pepper to taste on both sides.
  4. Toss chicken in flour mixture to coat fully.
  5. Swirl the melted butter in the dish to evenly distribute and then place coated chicken skin side down in hot dish.
  6. Bake at 400 F for 15 minutes. Flip over so skin is up and then cook until finished about 10 more minutes.

Chicken and waffles with super easy oven fried chicken recipe. SO so good.

We love eating this with mashed potatoes and wilted spinach or even with my easy buttermilk waffles recipe for a super easy chicken and waffles meal.

This is a keeper. Super good oven fried chicken recipe. Great for dinner.

Spinach and Mushroom Bruschetta Recipe

Spinach Mushroom Toast-003s

Spinach and mushroom bruschetta anyone? I love this recipe because it’s something that you can throw together as an appetizer on small pieces of bread or do on a full sized loaf for a lighter meal all on it’s own. Plus it’s a great and yummy way to get a ton of veggies in.

Spinach Mushroom Toast-007s

This dish is not just speedy to assemble but it’s absolutely delicious. With it’s simplicity it’s easy to make it vegan, vegetarian, or if you want to add some meat even more hearty. I’ve been known to make this for myself for a quick lunch.

Spinach and Mushroom Bruschetta Recipe

Spinach Mushroom Toast-001s

  • Spinach
  • Mushrooms sliced
  • Butter or butter alternative
  • Garlic Salt
  • French Bread
  • Goat Cheese (optional)

Spinach Mushroom Toast s

  1. Start by making some wilted spinach. Heat butter, butter alternative, or olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add spinach and garlic salt to taste to the pan and move with a spatula until wilted. This will only take a few minutes. You only need a small amount of butter/oil. I’ve even used just spray oil. Set aside.
  2. Saute the mushrooms in butter (or alternative) with garlic salt. Set aside
  3. Next make garlic bread. I know other people take time using fresh garlic or rubbing garlic on the bread but my favorite garlic bread that is always a hit with my guest is just buttered bread sprinkled with garlic salt and cooked under the broiler.
  4. Top the garlic bread with a generous layer of spinach and then with mushrooms.
  5. Add a sprinkling of crumbled goat cheese if desired and enjoy!

Spinach Mushroom Toast-009s

Super easy right? These would be great for a party or like I’m having them an easy lunch. Want more? Here are some other fun projects to check out.

The Best Quick Buttermilk Waffle Recipe

This buttermilk waffle recipe is the best. Easy to have breakfast ready in less than  15 minutes.

There is just something so good about a fresh buttermilk waffle. Barely crisp on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. Not only are waffles DE-licious, they are crazy fast. They are ready to be cooked up as fast as you can stir the ingredients which makes them the perfect post-church or any day brunch.

Chicken and Waffles. This is the best buttermilk waffle recipe.

Add your favorite sweet or savory toppings and you’ve got totally different flavors in a snap. Likewise you can throw some extra stuff in the batter and change things up that way too. Seriously endless possibilities!

Hands down the best fast buttermilk waffle recipe. Great for fast breakfast or brunch or even dinner with chicken.

Basic Buttermilk Waffle Recipe

  • 2 C Flour
  • 2 C Buttermilk
  • 2 TBS Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 C Butter, melted
  • 2 Eggs

You can be all technical and mix the dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls but I hate dishes and I can’t tell a difference so I just mix it all in one bowl. I start with the wet ingredients. Mixing the melted butter with the buttermilk then whipping the eggs into the bowl. After that I add all the dry ingredients and stir. It’s really that easy. Heat waffle iron and cook up your waffles. This makes 6-8 waffles depending on the size of your waffle iron.

Chocolate chip waffles. With the best fast buttermilk waffle recipe ever.

For more fun you can try throwing a handful of chocolate chips to the batter before cooking it up. I like to do a combo, plain, chocolate chip, and sometimes cheese. Oh yum I’m going to have to make these again (even though I just had them this morning ahaha).

And if you are an addict like me you could go for waffles for dinner with yummy Chicken and Waffles. Well I guess you could do that for lunch and breakfast too but you know what I mean.

One Minute in Shell Avocado Topping for Taquitos and Tamales

delimex disclosureYummy fast avocado topping perfect for mexican food

I’m not much of a cold sandwich person so I always struggle with lunches but one of my favorite quick picks are Delimex taquitos or tamales with my 1 minute avocado topping. The combo of the hot crunchy taquitos or yummy meaty tamales with the smooth rich avocado topping is so satisfying and easy they are perfect for when you want something fast. #DelimexFiesta #CollectiveBias

Delicious taquitoes and tamales with quick 1 minute avocado topping

I love guacamole but there just isn’t always the time to make real guac so this avocado topping is my go to for easy meals. As a bonus you make it right in the avocado skin so there are no extra dishes.

The best avocado topping for taquitoes and tamales. Takes just a minute to make.

  • Avocado
  • Garlic Salt
  • Powdered Onion
  • Lemon Juice (optional)

Cut your avocado in half and remove the pit. Use a fork to mash the avocado meat in the avocado skin. Sprinkle on a bit of garlic salt and onion powder to taste. Add a drop or two of lemon juice if you have it. Stir around and spoon onto your taquitos or tamales.

1 minute avocado topping recipe perfect for Mexican food

I always have taquitos and tamales in my freezer and avocados in my fridge and I’ve even been known to pull them out for dinner when I’m feeling like something on the lighter side not to mention the low maintenance side. If you want an easy way to be festive Delimex Mexican foods are perfect for at home Cinco de Mayo celebrations.

So easy right? If you need suggestions for Delimex taquitos and tamales I’m a big fan of the basic beef taquitos and the beef tamales which I found at Walmart. I like to cook the taquitos a little longer than the instructions say so they are super crispy. And even though I’m normally wary of microwaved food the tamales heat up so great in the microwave I had to fend my husband off from eating all of mine today.
