Marshmallow fluff is quick and fun to make in your own kitchen! In 15 minutes you'll have enough fluff for fruit dip, whoopie pies, or fluffernutters.   I needed a dish to bring to Bunco. I'd brought my Mexican Corn Dip last month, which is my go to dish to pass. I thought about Horseradish Cheese Dip, but I really wanted something sweet.  I'd planned on making brownies but then my sister told that's what she was bringing. Gah! I had cream cheese so I thought I'd make a fruit dip only I needed marshmallow fluff.  No problem! I've made homemade marshmallows so fluff should be easy. Plus a few months ago I won a copy of Shauna Sever's Marshmallow Madness cookbook and I've been dying to try out a recipe! Making marshmallow fluff was some of the most fun I've ever had in the kitchen. It really is very easy and came together in about 15 minutes - 10 of which was my mixer beating the marshmallow. This would be a lot of fun to make with kids - just be careful of the hot ... [read more]

Irish Cream Coffee Creamer from growingupgabel.com @thegabels #recipe

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, I have Irish cream on the brain.   My homemade Irish cream is a favorite adult beverage, but I wanted something the kids could enjoy, too. One of my favorite flavors is Irish cream and every March, I find myself trying to find fun ways to incorporate in to pretty much everything.  I'm not really in to dying food green, but Irish cream I can get behind! A few years ago I made my first batch of homemade Irish cream, which is basically a homemade version of Bailey's.  It's so good, but it does contain alcohol so it isn't for the whole family. I wanted to make the recipe in to an Irish Cream coffee creamer so the kids could enjoy a little Irish cream for St. Patrick's Day, too.    I'm a major coffee drinker of all kinds like cardamom coffee and iced coffee. I also like my tea with a little cream and I'm thinking this Irish Cream coffee creamer would be an interesting addition to tea. This coffee creamer comes together really ... [read more]

Party Dip Recipe: Mexican Corn Dip

A good party dip recipe that is quick and easy is nice to have in your cooking repertoire. Mexican Corn Dip is one of the best party dips I've ever eaten or made. This party dip recipe is easy to make, as you will see in the video, and I've had total strangers ask for the recipe.   It's football season - hooray! I love football season and often get together with family and friends for a game.  I've never officially tailgated but I do have a selection of fun dip recipes to choose from to take to holiday or family gatherings that are great for tailgating, too.  If I'm in a healthy mood I might choose a roasted eggplant dip.  Or I might make a simple veggie dip with some sour cream and a homemade onion soup mix. Mexican Corn Dip is a party dip recipe that I stole from my very good friend, Kim.  Every single time I have been at a party where this party dip is served, people have asked for the recipe.  The ingredients are not necessarily what you'd expect, but I would ...

Homemade salad dressing is so easy to make!  Poppy seed salad dressing comes together quickly with mayo, apple cider vinegar, and poppy seeds. I am a huge fan of making your own salad dressings. They are quick and easy to make plus homemade dressings taste better, are cheaper than store bought, and are so much healthier!  One of the key ingredients in most homemade salad dressings is vinegar.  I actually have a large variety of vinegars in my pantry, but one that I use most often is apple cider vinegar. I usually have to head to Whole Foods or another specialty store to find raw apple cider vinegar so I was pleased to find that Heinz now has an unfiltered apple cider vinegar.   Unfiltered apple cider vinegar retains the “mother” of the vinegar – a compound created naturally during vinegar’s fermentation process.  Heinz Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar is raw and unpasteurized, which means it's more natural.  You can use raw apple cider vinegar for salads, marinades ...

Buffalo sauce

Buffalo Sauce is one of the easiest condiments to make at home.  Make an easy weeknight dinner with homemade buffalo sauce in Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches. I have a serious love of anything and everything "buffalo" flavored.  Last winter my mom and I decided to break out the deep fryer make our own buffalo wings.  We needed a buffalo sauce that wasn't too spicy because we have some serious wimps in the family so I set out to create a basic buffalo sauce we could use as a base.  My buffalo sauce recipe is perfect for this week's Spice It Up! Sunday Supper theme! The fun thing is that you can make the sauce as spicy - or not - as you want. What I love most about this sauce, other than the flavor, is that it takes about 5 minutes total to make.  You can whip it up at a moments notice.  The recipe is a great base to create your own unique buffalo sauce!  I would say this is a mild buffalo sauce. If you want it spicier, I'd add a little Tabasco or more Frank's to it, ... [read more]
