Churro Cheesecake

Whats not to love? Churros and Cheesecake combined. It was so tasty and so easy. I wish I served it warm cuz thats when it was the tastiest. My cousin loved  this recipe! 

 

  • 2 cans (oz. each) Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls (I used the butter flake kind)
  • 2 pkg. (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Using a hand mixer or a kitchenaid, beat together the cream cheese, vanilla, partially beaten egg, and ½ cup sugar until smooth.
  2. Mix together the rest of the sugar (1/2 cup) and 2 tablespoons cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray and sprinkle ¼ cup (or half) of your cinnamon sugar mixture evenly into the bottom of the 9×13.
  4. On a piece of parchment paper, roll out your crescent dinner roll dough into a big 9×13 square and press the seams together so the dough is completely sealed. Set the dough in the bottom of your 9×13 baking dish on top of the cinnamon sugar.
  5. Spread the cheesecake evenly on top of your dough and unroll the other can of crescent dough and place on top also making sure that the seams are completely sealed.
  6. Sprinkle the top with the remaining ¼ cup of cinnamon sugar mixture and bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

Easy, Quick and Cheap Bean Dip!

I made this during todays third snow day of the year. I just used white beans I already had in the house, it was so easy and pretty tasty. It tastes healthy, and I like the texture better than hummus, less chunky. 

  • 1 15-ounce can of canellini beans (rinse them well and pat dry before using)
  • 1 small garlic clove (you can use a little more or a little less depending on your preference)
  • The juice from about half a lemon ( I cheated with lemon juice from a bottle)
  • A little more than 1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste

Throw everything into food processor and blend until its smooth! So tasty! 

I ate it with everything I had, I tried it with pretzels, carrots, bagged pita chips and even pita chips I made from home. 

TO make pita chips from home, Spread thin layer of butter over pita bread, (flat like a wrap) and sprinkle some garlic powder. Throw in toaster until pita begins to bubble and become light brown. 

There are so many things you can do with this dip. Put chunks of anything over it. Shrimp, garlic, make it greek with chopped cucumbers, feta and tomatoes. Mix in some pesto or some arugula. 

Tastiest Chocolate Cake you will ever make!! ( Easy too!)

This recipe I started making when I was probably 9 years old. My mom bought me an American Girl cook book and I was so amazed by it.  This recipe appealed to me because it only uses one dish! You make the whole thing in one pan. It is also the tastiest, MOISTEST cake you will ever eat. Just good old fashioned baking over here.

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3 heaping teaspoons of unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 6 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 cup of cold water

 

Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt into the cake pan. Make 3 holes in dry mixture. In one hole pour vinegar, second hole vanilla and last hole oil. Carefully add cold water and mix everything with a fork. Cook at 350 for 35-40 minutes.

Icing:

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons of milk

Blend and decorate cake :)

 

 

 

Easy Easy Quiche!!

So this recipe really shouldn’t qualify as quiche since it only contains two eggs but its so tasty, I love it!! This recipe was given to my from my friend, and she got it from her aunt, so its been passed down the line which are the best kind of recipes! 

One unbaked pie shell

1/2 cup of mayo ( I like miracle whip)

1/2 cup of milk 

2 eggs 

1/2 cup of shredded cheese (cheddar works nice my mom likes swiss) 

1 tblspoon of cornstarch 

Here is where you customize it! I liked to add 3/4 cup of ham, cubed, some onions, mushrooms, broccli. Recipe can take even green peppers or any veggies you like. I dont use more than 2/3 cups of veggies combined. 

Mix wet ingredients, and gently stir in chunky things next. 

Pour into pie shell and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Until center comes out clean when poked with knife :)
