Homemade Cheese Crackers

 

Homemade Rosemary Cheese CrackersI promise I will get to the Homemade Rosemary Cheese Crackers in just a minute. But first, I wanted to write a little about helping people in need.

I personally know first hand what it feels like to lose everything from a natural disaster.  It’s normal for someone who is not effected personally to watch the devastation on the news and feel empathy and sadness, then turn off the tv and go on about living their life.  We all do it, but I’m asking you to please help out the hurricane victims in Texas and Florida by doing this one simple task.  Anytime you see a dairy product with the Real California Milk Seal, take a close-up picture of the seal, share it across all your social media channels with the hashtag #SealsForGood and tag @RealCalifMilk.  Homemade Rosemary Cheese CrackersHomemade Rosemary Cheese Crackers

Then in turn they will donate $5.00 per photo (up to 20k) to The Great American Milk Drive to help those affected by the devastating hurricanes until 12/31/17.  No purchase necessary.

It would mean the world to me if you would please do it! Thank you!

Now on to these delicious cheese crackers made with Real California Cheese…

Homemade Rosemary Cheese Crackers

You are never going to believe how easy these crackers are to make until you make them yourself!  I promise you’re going to have one of those hit myself in the forehead moments.  The beauty of this recipe is you can change things up however you’d like; you can omit the rosemary, and/or you can use any type of cheddar like cheese, I think pepper jack would be delicious!

Make the simple dough and refrigerate for one hour.  Then roll out the dough between 1/16 and 1/8 of an inch and bake, the thinner you get the dough the crisper the cheese cracker will be.  That’s it…Really!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups Real California Cheese sharp cheddar, grated
  • 6 tablespoons Real California Milk butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped finely
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons Real California Milk
Directions
  1. In a stand mixer add cheese, butter, rosemary, and salt until completely combined.
  2. Add the all-purpose flour a little at a time. At first the dough will be very crumbly.
  3. One teaspoon at a time add the milk. The dough should come together and look like a pie dough texture. If it is still dry after all milk is in you can add 1 or 2 more, ½ teaspoon at a time.
  4. Cut dough in half and wrap each in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for an hour.
  5. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
  6. Place 1 dough piece in between 2 pieces of parchment paper and roll out until the dough is about ⅛ inch thick. The thinner the dough is rolled out the more crispy the crackers will be.
  7. Cut rolled out dough into small squares or use small cookie cutter shapes (like I did). Continue to roll together the scraps of dough and cut out.
  8. Repeat process with second ball of dough.
  9. Place cut pieces onto a Silpat or a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  10. Bake crackers for 8 to 12 minutes depending on your oven. They should be bubbled up and golden brown on the bottom. Allow crackers to cool to room temperature before serving.
  11. Store crackers in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Don’t forget:  Spot The Seal!

Take a close-up photo of the Real California Milk seal and share on all your social media channels with the hashtag #SealsforGood and tag @CaliforniaRealMilk to help those affected by the hurricanes.

Follow me on Instagram and Twitter and see how many times I Spot The Seal!

Until Next Time…

Breakfast On The Go Pop Tarts

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CapturingTraditions #CollectiveBias

Weekday mornings can be hectic around here. Everyone is trying to get out of the house at the same time while I’m scrambling to find a nutritious breakfast for us to eat before we all leave.

A while back, I decided to do this one small thing on Sundays to make the weekday mornings go a lot more smoothly.  The solution you may ask? To make our weekday breakfast ahead of time.  I knew I needed the breakfast to be something that we would all love and be good for us.  It needed to be a hardy breakfast that could be eaten on the go; so, I came up with homemade delicious and nutritious pop tarts.  These are not the type of pop tarts you will find in any box.

Breakfast On The Go Pop Tarts

Hand held savory breakfast pop tarts made to each persons preference is the perfect solution. I use store-bought frozen pie crusts, spread it with Gold ‘n Soft and layer in their choice of ingredients; eggs, bacon, roasted veggies, and a variety of cheeses. The breakfast pop tarts just need to be wrapped with parchment paper and thrown into the toaster to warm up and everyone is out the door within minutes.

Breakfast On The Go Pop Tarts

Choose from these ingredients or come up with your family’s favorites.

Breakfast On The Go Pop Tarts

Spread the entire bottom layer with Gold ‘n Soft.

I love using Gold ‘n Soft because it is so easy to spread.  There is no wait time for it to soften and it goes on smoothly without pulling on the pie crust dough.

Breakfast on the go pop tarts

Add your filling, cover with the top layer of pie crust dough and crimp edges with a fork.

Breakfast On The Go Pop Tarts

Bake in the oven and when cool wrap each in parchment paper.  Label with ingredients and place in the freezer.

Defrost in the fridge the night before you want to eat it.

Then just pop the parchment wrapped tart in the toaster to warm up!

 

The weekday mornings are much calmer (thankfully) and I can enjoy my mornings again knowing my family has a delicious breakfast that is also good for them.

  • ¼ cup bacon crumbles
Directions

  2. Sprinkle all-purpose flour onto the countertop.
  3. Working with one pie crust dough at a time unroll on to flour and cut pie crust into six 3" x 4" rectangles. Repeat with second crust.
  4. Spread 6 rectangles completely with Gold 'n Soft and fill with your desired filling combinations.
  5. Place top piece of dough onto filling making sure to get all air bubbles out. Press edges together and seal all sides with a fork.
  6. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Serve hot or when cool wrap in parchment paper and freeze for up to 3 months.
Memos
**To reheat.
Place in fridge the night before to defrost.
Place into a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes or place parchment wrapped pop tart into the toaster making sure the toaster is at the highest setting.
The parchment paper will brown in the toaster just like when it's in the oven.

 

Weekends are when I love spoiling my family for breakfast with french toast or pancakes and nothing tastes better than when they are drenched in Gold ‘n Soft.

Did you know Gold ‘n Soft spread has no cholesterol or hydrogenated oils, and has zero trans fats per serving, all while having the great taste of butter?  I enjoy how it is so very easy to spread even right after I take it out of the refrigerator.

I got my Gold ‘n Soft at Smart & Final click on the picture below to see what store carries Gold ‘n Soft near you.

You’ll be glad you did!

Ready, Set, Hike! It’s Football Season!

This Shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser.  All Opinions are mine alone. #GrillGatingHero #GrillGating

Ready, Set, Hike

Autumn is truly my favorite time of the year!  Handsome and I love everything thing about it; big comfy sweaters, leaves changing colors, grilling outside on crisp Autumn evenings, pumpkin everything, and especially, cheering our favorite college team to victory!  Go Black & Gold!

There is nothing like an afternoon spent outdoors with friends, food, and football.  So go ahead and find your perfect parking spot, get your Kingsford® Charcoal heated up, and crack open our favorite drink, Dr Pepper®.  It’s tailgating time, or as Handsome and I like to call it grillgating time!

Ready, Set, Hike

Ready, Set, Hike

To get everyone in that football mood I’m sharing 2 of my favorite grillgating recipes, 10 awesome grillgating tips, and a couple of essential grillgating items.  The best part you may ask? I’m providing you with a printable grillgating checklist!

 

So who’s ready for some Touch Down grillgating recipes?

 

Ranch Queso

Directions

10 oz Sharp Cheddar Cheese

6 oz American Cheese (or if you like it spicy use pepper jack)

8 oz Cream Cheese

½ cup Hidden Valley® Ranch Dressing

1 10 oz can Original Rotel Tomatoes and Chillies, (liquid removed)

 

Instructions

In a medium pan over low heat (or on the cool side of the grill), combine all the ingredients.

Stir continuously until cheese has melted.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

Ready, Set, Hike

 

And for dessert after the game…

 

RITZ Sweet & Salty S’Mores

Ingredients

60 RITZ Crackers

15 Large Marshmallows

¾ cup Milk Chocolate Chips

 

Directions

Preheat oven on broil.

Place chocolate chips over a double boiler to melt.

On a silpat or parchment paper place 30 RITZ Crackers (flat side up) onto a cookie sheet.

Cut marshmallow in half and place on each RITZ Cracker.

Place RITZ Crackers and marshmallows into the oven for about 3 minutes or until the marshmallow have turned golden brown (I like mine on the burnt side).  Remove from oven and place a remaining RITZ Cracker (flat side down) on top of the marshmallow.

Once the chocolate has melted, using a small pair of tongs, dip half of the RITZ Cracker sandwich into the melted chocolate.

Place back onto the lined cookie sheet and repeat with all the remaining sandwiches.

Let dry for about an hour.  

Pack up and bring to the game.

10 Awesome Grillgating Tips 

 

  1. Freeze water bottles to use in place of ice in your cooler.  They will keep everything cold and you will have cold water to drink when the ice melts.
  2. Consider which way the wind is blowing when setting up your grill, so the smoke is not blowing on your guests.
  3. Give your Kingsford® Charcoal ample time to heat-up.
  4. Over flipping your burgers makes the meat tough.  Flip your burgers only once and use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature is at 140 degrees fahrenheit.
  5. Label the top of your coolers so your guests know what is in each cooler.
  6. Form burger patties the night before and place them between two pieces of Glad® Press’n Seal to save time the day of the big game.  
  7. Add helium balloons to a long string so it will be easy for your friends to find your tailgate.
  8. Pack a plastic bin with tailgating essentials; bottle & can openers, zip top bags, duct tape, scissors, hand sanitizer, permanent marker, & toilet paper.
  9. Bring a metal bucket to store the hot coals in so they can be extinguished properly from your charcoal grill.
  10. Keep the party going after the game.  Miss the traffic by enjoying some postgame coffee and RITZ Sweet & Salty S’Mores.

 

Would you like your tailgate party to be featured on this cool GrillGating website?  Just take photos of your tailgate party and upload them to Instagram & Twitter using the hashtag #GrillGatingHero and you might be one of the lucky ones to get your photos chosen!  While you’re on the GrillGating site check out the video featuring football legend Emmitt Smith sharing his grilling tips and recipes.

Get Your Drink On With A Lime Breeze

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy long walks on cool evenings, barbecues, baseball games, picnics, beach days, and concerts.  Handsome and I love any activity you can do outside.

One of our favorite things to do is going to concerts in the park.  These events combine two fun summer activities; picnics and music (check with your local parks to see if have a concert series).

Over the years we have come up with a pre-concert ritual.  As we are making and packing our picnic menu items for the picnic part of the outing, we enjoy a cocktail (or 2).  This is not just any ‘ol cocktail, it is one we concocted in the beginning of summer and that is our signature cocktail we drink all season long.

This summer’s cocktail is called Lime Breeze.  I love lime sherbet and Handsome loves Bacardi Superior, I blend those two with a little coconut water and you have a satisfying Lime Breeze.  Tasty and refreshing, just perfect for the hot and humid weather Southern California has been experiencing.

Get Your Drink On With A Lime Breeze

Bacardi is also into concerts, as they have teamed up with Live Nation!

Right now, Bacardi and Live Nation have an awesome sweepstakes happening!

Roasted Carrot Soup

 

Have you ever been unloading your groceries after going to a big box store and ever wondered…why did I just purchase 5 pounds of carrots?   Yes, this just happened.

Carrot recipes here I come.  First up! Roasted Carrot Soup.

A family favorite anytime of the year.  If you really love that carrot flavor, this soup is for you.

Roasted Carrot Soup

Now comes the dilemma…Do I have the other ingredients I need to make these recipes?  I always have fresh herbs on hand…or do I?  I buy them and they somehow make it to the bottom of my vegetable drawer where they are never seen again (until it’s too late and they are wilted and squishy). YUCK!

Thanks to Pop & Cook I always have fresh herbs in my freezer.  What is Pop & Cook?  It’s genius!  It’s my favorite cooking secret!

pop and cook roasted carrot soup

 

Pop & Cook is pre-portioned fresh garlic, onions and herbs.  They are frozen into cubes so you can store them in your freezer to have on hand whenever you need them, use what you need and pop the rest back in the freezer.  The perfect amount of herbs right at your fingertips; no cleaning, no prepping, no mess!  The garlic and herbs are picked at their peak of ripeness and are flash frozen within 90 minutes of harvest to ensure quality and freshness.

 

You can find Pop & Cook exclusively at your local Walmart in the freezer section.  Pop & Cook products do not contain preservatives or artifical ingredients.Roasted Carrot Soup

 

Here’s how they are measured out:

  • Crushed Garlic 1 cube = 1 clove
  • Crushed Ginger 1 cube = 1 teaspoon
  • Chopped Basil = 1 teaspoon
  • Chopped Cilantro = 1 teaspoon
  • Sauteed Glazed Onions 1 tray = 3 chopped onions

Knowing I have these items in my freezer at all times makes making dinner a snap on those busy days when I have to get a meal on the table fast.

One Skillet Zesty Cheezy Corn Dip

 

One of my favorite summer foods is fresh corn.  This year the corn has been especially sweet, so I have tried to incorporate it in as many dishes as possible.  Sadly, I have a family member who is not as crazy about corn as I am, but we can all agree this one skillet zesty cheezy corn dip fast becomes a favorite of everyone who tastes it.

One Skillet Zesty Cheezy Corn Dip

In fact, the “I don’t want corn again” person (they have asked to remain nameless) has requested this dip for our casual Friday night dinner.  This zesty cheezy corn dip along with a salad made with my mom’s special vinaigrette makes the perfect easy-peasy Friday night meal.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret…The ingredient that makes this corn dip so delicious is not the corn, it’s the Mezzetta Peperoncinis.

One Skillet Zesty Cheezy Corn Dip

Have you ever tasted a peperoncini?  When I was growing up peperoncinis were always sitting in a bowl on our table at every family gathering.  In fact, every home of every Italian friend I had, had peperoncinis sitting on their table in a bowl!  Peperoncinis turn an average meal into crave-worthy mouth watering meals.

They are so delicious Handsome loves to eat them right out of the jar down to the very last one.

To get every bit of flavor right down to the bottom of the Peperoncini jar, years ago, my mom came up with this very simple zesty vinaigrette.

One Skillet Zesty Cheezy Corn Dip

Combine:  1/4 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup peperoncini juice, 1 teaspoon dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon honey, along with salt and pepper to taste.  Shake it up to combine.  You have just a transformed an everyday vinaigrette to one that will brighten every bite!
