Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe

Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe

When it comes to frozen treats, ice cream sandwiches have long been a favorite in our family. It is always a joke that the boys in the family like vanilla ice cream best, which us ladies find quite boring. The nice thing about an ice cream sandwich is that it takes that vanilla ice cream and combines it only with a chocolate cookie, another thing the boys like. For us girls, that addition of chocolate takes the vanilla ice cream to a whole other level and VOILA – it’s a dessert that everyone likes.

But, what is extra EXTRA good, is this Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches Recipe made from scratch! Not only are they delicious, you give yourself lots of opportunities for customization like cutting them in smaller or larger shapes, adding in some chocolate chips or sprinkles around the edges, or even changing out that boring old vanilla for your favorite flavor of ice cream.

No matter how you decide to customize them, or if you leave them traditional, you and your family will love these Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches!

Easy Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe

Disclosure AffiliateEasy Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe

I LOVE peanut butter. But, I have to say I’m pretty picky about what kind I like to eat. I like to eat REAL peanut butter that doesn’t have a lot of “extras” added to it. I really don’t want things like high fructose corn syrup and miscellaneous chemicals and preservatives when it doesn’t need it. There is only thing that peanut butter really needs. That’s peanuts!! Salt is good (I like things salty) and if you like things a little sweeter, you can sweeten your peanut butter naturally with honey.

If you use a lot of peanut butter, your best option when making it for yourself is to buy your peanuts in bulk. You can do that at a natural foods co-op, a warehouse club store (like Costco) or on Amazon.

Easy Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe Process
 

Easy Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe

 
INGREDIENTS
Peanuts
Honey (optional)
Salt (optional)

DIRECTIONS
Place in food processor and run for about a minute and scrape down sides if necessary. Then process for another 3-4 minutes or until peanut butter has reached desired consistency.
If using salted peanuts, you do not need to add any extra salt.
You can add honey if you want a little extra sweetness. If so, add about 1 teaspoon per cup of peanuts.
1 cup of peanuts yields a little over 1/2 cup of peanut butter.

Cucumber Honeydew Salad Recipe

Refreshing Cucumber Honeydew Salad Recipe

On hot summer days, it’s nice to beat the heat with a salad made of refreshing ingredients. When you think of refreshing, two things near the top of the list are cucumbers (where do you think we get the phrase “cool as a cucumber”??) and honeydew melon. The cool combination of these two summer favorites, makes this Cucumber Honeydew Salad Recipe extra refreshing!

Be sure to chill this Cucumber Honeydew Salad recipe and keep it nice and cool. If serving at an outdoor event, you can do this by setting your salad bowl in another bowl that is a bit larger and filled with ice. It’s easy to do and easy to serve.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe

Summer is here and for many of us the weather is HOT!! We had 100 degree heat index warnings in Minnesota this week. While we may have air conditioners cooling our houses, there is no reason to fight them by heating up the oven – and that’s where easy-to-make slow cooker meals come in! I love using my crockpot all year round, but the summer is when I give it the most use. I especially like simple recipes with both meat and veggies to make a complete meal.

This Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe is a perfect example. It’s way tastier than something you would order from the local Chinese take-out place and since you’re making it yourself you can control all the ingredients that go in to control salt, fats and ingredient quality. Serve this meal with some freshly cooked brown rice and you’re good to go. Even better – the leftovers heat up wonderfully, so you’ll have a second night of dinner without heating up the house.

BBQ Chicken and Veggie Packets Recipe for Easy Summer Get-Togethers

cbias disclosure#FireUpTheGrill #ad #CollectiveBias

BBQ Chicken and Veggie Packets Recipe

One of my very favorite things about summer is backyard entertaining! I love barbecues, pool parties, or any chance to get-together and spend time outside. The focus point for these get-togethers is always the same – THE FOOD! While eating the food makes a great focus point, I don’t like the food preparation to be too time consuming. That’s where easy grill recipes and grab-and-go Marketside favorites I can pick up at Walmart come in!

Kraft BBQ Walmart

This weekend my family came over for a barbecue. I have had a VERY busy week with lots of work to do and upcoming travel to plan for, so I didn’t have a lot of extra time to be preparing for our get-together. So, I headed to Walmart to pick up ingredients for this easy BBQ Chicken and Veggie Packets Recipe made with Kraft BBQ Sauce.

Walmart Marketside

After picking up my chicken and stopping in the condiments aisle to pick up the Kraft BBQ Sauce, I headed to the produce department for veggies. I grabbed peppers, an onion and a bag of Marktetside fresh green beans. Since I didn’t want to spend a lot of time preparing sides or appetizers for our meal, I also stopped by the deli where I picked up some Marketside items.

Marketside Walmart

I chose Marketside Italian Pinwheels, which made a delicious appetizer (they look pretty too!) and Marketside Italian Style Pasta Salad. The salad was very fresh because all of the ingredients came separated and I mixed it all together at home. It was a perfect side.

To make our main course, I enlisted the help of Little R, who just loves to cook. Since there are only a few steps to this recipe, he did most of it himself. That’s how easy it is!

Crispy Garlic Ranch Chicken Recipe with Garlic Ranch Potatoes and Peppers

My 7-year-old nephew loooooves to cook. He is an expert smoothie maker and he has wonderful food presentation skills. He is also a BIG fan of cooking shows on TV. He has picked up a pretty impressive amount of knowledge about cooking terms and concepts. I’m really interested to see if this cooking interest continues. With this head start he could be a great chef by the time he reaches adulthood!

Hidden Valley Ranch at Walmart

Yesterday my little chef went to Walmart with me to pick up some ingredients and then helped to create this yummy Crispy Garlic Ranch Chicken recipe along with a side of Garlic Ranch Potatoes and Peppers. He is actually very good at (and careful about) cutting vegetables and handled all of that, which is really the most time-consuming part of either recipe.

My nephew obviously enjoyed this cooking experience because my sister texted me this message late last night:

I had to laugh because that “fancy pan” was nothing more than a baking rack placed over a 9×13 cake pan. Very fancy indeed!

Crispy Garlic Ranch Chicken Recipe Cooking

Directions:

Cut chicken into “chicken tender sized” pieces. Place in a bowl with Hidden Valley Ranch and mix well. Let sit at least an hour, but the longer the better (preferably overnight).
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place panko crumbs in a shallow bowl and stir in paprika, salt and pepper.
One by one, place the chicken pieces in the crumbs to coat both sides. Place on a greased baking rack.
Bake approximately one hour or until cooked through and golden, turning once.

We made the potatoes recipe at the same time. To save space in the oven I placed the rack with chicken right on top of the pan with the potatoes. That’s what turned it into the “fancy pan”.
