Food Fun Friday: Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats

Friday, June 29th, 2012 by by

If you are looking for a quick no-bake dessert or treat, you’ve come to the right place. I know this is quick because I prepared it in 15 minutes. Faithful readers know that my family is currently residing in temporary housing while we wait for our home to close. We didn’t take a lot with us to the new place, so creating something to share with you all was a bit of a challenge. When I opened up the cabinets, I noticed I had brought marshmallows here for some reason. Very odd, but I started to get an idea. We did not have Rice Krispies, but we did have Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Hmmm…
You will need:

  • Marshmallows
  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal
  • Butter
  • Pan



Thursday: 5 Ingredient Lemonade Pie

Thursday, June 28th, 2012 by by

This is a nice summer treat- perfect for barbecues or picnics. And, of course, you can accompany it with a glass of lemonade… or just of milk. Enjoy!


*1 can Western Family sweetened condensed milk

*4 egg yolks

*1/2 cup white sugar

*1/2 cup lemon juice

*graham cracker crust

Mix the lemon juice and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved. Then, add the sweetened condensed milk and egg yolks and mix until smooth.

Pour into a graham cracker crust. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, or until the center becomes firm. Garnish with graham cracker crumbs and a slice of lemon. That’s it! Gotta love pie recipes that are, indeed, easy as pie.

Slow Cooker Apple Crumble

Yum – who doesn’t love warm Apple Crumble served with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream?  I’ve had this recipe tucked away in one of my recipe books for a while and finally had a chance to try it out.  Wow, was my family happy to be the taste testers!

The recipe is called “Apple Crumble,” but I found the crumble part had a consistency more like a delicious oatmeal cookie.  Possibly I needed less butter, or maybe my butter was not cold enough?  Didn’t really matter in the end, because this was gobbled up in a flash!  What made it even better was that I threw it all together and into the slow cooker after I made lunch, and it was ready by dinnertime.

Here is the recipe if you would like to try to make your own Slow Cooker Apple Crumble.

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup walnuts or pecans, roughly chopped (optional)
1 cup cold butter cut into pieces
4 to 6 large apples peeled cored and thickly sliced (you want about 6 cups)
4 to 5 tbsp apple juice ( I didn’t have any apple juice, so  used 1 tbsp lemon juice and the rest water) (more…)
