A Dolla Makes Me Holla Honey Boo Boo Child

That’s So Jacob

There’s a magical, wonderful place that exists in almost every town that is capable of making dreams come true. It’s not Target, or Starbucks…it’s…

THE DOLLAR STORE.

I was just hanging around this afternoon, and I realized that I needed something. I can’t remember what it was, but I had this crazy idea that maybe, just maybe, the dollar store might have it for a decent price. (…)

So, I went to the Dollar Tree over in Middleton, and I must not have been in a dollar store for a long time, because I completely forgot…they have everything there. And it’s all just a dollar. Or less! They have 89-cent candy bars, the regular sized ones and not the gas station/Walgreens/airport steroid-jumbo sizes! And before you say anything, yeah, I know that a ton of the stuff in the dollar store is crap, but if you bought it, well…

The Board

In a large bowl, whisk 5 eggs until they double in volume. Make sure you use your muscles to incorporate a lot of air into them.  To get an even workout for your shoulders and biceps, switch hands after 20 to 30 seconds of whisking.

Using a coarse grater, grate the potatoes and the cheese

04 potato Don’t bother peeling the potatoes – the skin adds that extra bit of flavor. Just make sure you wash them well.

To get a little acidity into it, mince the olives. The olives will cut the richness of the…

Cherry Coffee Cake

A New Neapolitan

Unlike most coffee cakes that come with a side of insulin, this coffee cake is sweet enough to be called cake and healthy enough to be considered a breakfast treat.  Of course this isn’t as healthy as a bowl of oatmeal (in my case, it might actually be though…), but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a slice of cake with your morning coffee!

After a lot of failed attempts, I am happy to say that this cake was worth the time (and ingredients) spent.  I decided to use half whole wheat flour for added fiber, but not too much to make the cake dry and dense.  I also decided to cut out all of the butter and the crumb topping that is usually found on top of coffee cakes and replaced them with healthier alternatives; a mix of coconut oil and greek yogurt for the fat, and fresh fruit…

Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

One Page At A Time

DSC_0013-2-500x500

There have been many times when I wanted to bake but I didn’t know what I wanted to bake. Whenever this happens, I always decide to make chocolate chip cookies. However, I have yet to find, and save, a good recipe. If the cookies didn’t become hard and crunchy shortly after cooling, I would lose the recipe. It seemed like I couldn’t keep a good chocolate chip cookie recipe. All of this changed when I found this one. Before I made these cookies, I expected the same outcome. I don’t think I was ever this happy to be wrong. They were yummy AND soft!

Curry and Almonds Chicken

Camilla Isley

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 50 mins
Total time: 1 hour
Yield: 2 servings

 Ingredients
  • 2 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 4 oz Slivered Almonds
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • Curry
  • 1 pinch Salt
This may sound like an extremely ethnic recipe, but it’s actually very mild and everyone will enjoy it. You can use two chicken breasts or a whole chicken. I prefer the breasts because I’m as fussy as a little kid and I don’t want to deal with bones and skin. I like to serve the chicken on a bed of rice. If you choose to do the same, check the cooking time of the rice and remember to cook it sufficiently in advance.
Instructions
  1. Prepare all your ingredients. Put the almonds in a bowl and cover them with lukewarm water. They have to be barely submerged. If you’re using a stock cube to make the…
