I’m going to be honest here, I’ve never made pancakes before. I know! Shocking! Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve eaten my fair share of them, I’ve just always thought they were a lot of work to make so I always opted for other easier breakfast options. Krusteaz recently sent me a box of their new Buttermilk Protein Flapjack & Waffle Mix and instead of having Ed make them (Hey! He’s the cook in the house!) I tried my hand at it. And let me tell you, Krusteaz makes it so easy to enjoy delicious protein packed pancakes in minutes! Krusteaz Buttermilk Protein Flapjack & Waffle Mix is made with 100% whole grain flour, with 15 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber per serving when you make them with water. If you want even more protein, just substitute milk for the water. If you even more protein, you […]

I have found the easiest copycat recipe for Wendy’s Frosty’s. Anything that has to do with ice cream, now that’s my jam! I actually haven’t had a Wendy’s Frosty in about 5 years until about a week ago. What have I been doing with my life that I don’t eat them more? Oh that’s right, I’ve been staying away from fast food. Anyways, when I got a frosty the other day, I thought there had to be an easy way to recreate them at home with my Cuisinart Gelateria Ice Cream Maker. The answer is yes, yes there is! We purchased the 2 qt. Cuisinart Gelateria Ice Cream Maker at Sur la Table over this past summer when we did our first cooking class, Celebration Cakes. It actually was an impulse buy and it took us months to actually take it out of the box and figure out how to […]

I don’t know who came up with the idea of Friendsgiving, but I think it’s brilliant. I love my family so much and enjoy spending time with them. I also love the idea of giving thanks to your friends. And in the grand scheme of things, friends are family, aren’t they? Do you host or go to a Friendsgiving gathering every year? If you are new to the idea of Friendsgiving, it’s basically just a celebration of Thanksgiving dinner with your friends. It usually occurs on the Wednesday before or the Friday after Thanksgiving Day, since Thanksgiving is usually reserved for family gatherings. An assortment of food is prepared and stories are shared of why everyone is friends and thankful for each other. Typically the host prepares the turkey and everyone else brings a side dish (potluck style).
