Fudge! That chocolately, nutty treat we will drop everything to buy or attempt to make ourselves, but sometimes making such an amazing treat can be extremely expensive. But today I’m here to share a recipe for amazing fluffy and rich homemade fudge that costs under 20 bucks to make.
Here’s what you need:
* 3 cups of sugar
* 1 can of evaporated milk
* 3/4 cup of butter ( softened )
* 1 jar of marshmallow puff ( 7 oz )
* 1 tsp of vanilla
* 3 bags of semi sweet chocolate chips
* 1 bag of shelled walnuts
In a large pot, bring the sugar, butter and evaporated milk to a complete boil while stirring often. Once it has been boiling for about 6 minutes max, take the pot off the heat and add the marshmallow puff and chocolate chips and stir in until completely melted. Then add the vanilla and walnuts and stir in for about a minute.
Take out a 13×9 inch pan and line the inside with aluminum foil and pour your fudge mix into the pan then hit the bottom of it on the counter to get it even across the pan. Place in the freezer for 3 hours then cut and serve!
On days where we are busy, getting off work or just feel like doing nothing, one word pops in our head to make for dinner… Casserole, but some of us, myself included, used to think that a casserole requires a whole lot of work but in reality, it can be done quick, it can be easy and it can still be fresh and great tasty. Today I will be sharing my recipe for a delicious duo of chicken and tuna inside of a cheesy herb casserole.
What you’ll need:
- 4 cans of tuna
- 1 2/3 cups of water
- 2 cups of milk
- 3 tablespoons of butter
- 1/3 cup chopped green onions
- 3 tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley
- 2 chicken breasts ( chopped and cooked )
- 2 1/2 cups of fresh peas
- 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup of Parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon of ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons of sea salt
- 1 bag of egg noodles
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
On a medium sized pan, season your two chicken breasts with black pepper and sea salt and place it in the oven for twenty minutes or until fully cooked at an internal temperature of 165 degrees or higher. Once out of the oven, chop them into medium sized cubes and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix your tuna, chopped chicken, peas, green onions, cooked egg noodles, water, milk, butter, black pepper, sea salt, cheddar and parmesan cheese and pour into a large casserole pan and have the oven preheated at 400 degrees. Top with a little cheese and fresh basil and cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown slightly. Let your casserole cool and dig in!
When it comes to desserts, even the healthiest of us can be appealed by something small and something with a tarty citrus flare to it, for me that is lemon bars, a tasty treat that I always enjoy in the middle of the winter or the dead of summer and they are completely easy to make, even if your baking skills aren’t what you would like them to be!
What you’ll need:
- 1 cup softened butter
- 1/2 cup white cane sugar
- 2 cups all purpose non bleached sifted flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup white cane sugar
- 1/4 cup all purpose non bleached sifted flour
- 2 juiced lemons ( roughly 1 cup )
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
In a small bowl, mix the butter, two cups of flour and 1/2 cup of sugar together until it’s crumbly and dry to which you will then press into the bottom of an 8X8 or 9X13 pan and bake for 10-15 minutes or until it is firm and golden brown.
In a larger bowl, whisk 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, eggs and lemon juice until there are no longer any lumps and runny, then you will pour over the baked crust and bake for 20 minutes to 25 minutes or until the top begins to brown slightly. Once the top begins to brown slightly, remove from the oven, let them cool and sprinkle them with powdered sugar. Cut into squares and enjoy!
