Roasted White Carrots and Potatoes ~ The Plaid & Paisley Kitchen ~ www.pandpkitchen.com

 

The Farmers Market has to be one my favorite weekend outings! Working in Retail I don’t get many weekends so when I have a Saturday off and especially when Steve is in town I love heading downtown to get the pick of the freshest.  I found these beauties in a stall from a local organic farmer.  Until this day I had not seen white carrots before.  They looked amazing and were just calling out to me that they would be a fantastic meal.

Slightly sweeter than the orange carrot that we are all used to but still with that perfect crunch!

We try to get more vegetables in our diet and as I am sure you all know that can be easier said than done sometimes.  So when I find a new and tasty way to get better nutrition I am all over it! Continue reading →

S’mores Snack Cakes

S'mores Snack Cakes ~ The Plaid & Paisley Kitchen ~ www.pandpkitchen.comS’mores Snack Cakes?!  Why yes that is exactly what these are. Yummy Perfect square bites of heaven!  With the kids heading back to school it’s time for mommy to relax and have some much needed alone time, this is the perfect sweet treat to start your Fall off!

I know that most people like to make and eat S’mores during the summer months.  But for me  S’mores will always be a cool weather treat.  I love nothing better than sitting around a nice warm fire on cool Autumn evening.

We have had an amazingly mild summer here and some nights, like tonight, actually have a crisp feel to them. So these S’more Snack Cakes are a perfect treat!

I am so in love with great color the marshmallows turned in the oven! They have that perfect just out of the fire toasty look and it also has that crunch and then gooey yummy sweetness fills your mouth!  The secret is to sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top just before baking.

I love to use sweetened condensed milk in my baked treats!  Nothing and I mean nothing makes an ooey gooey treat like it.  I also used dark chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate.  I love the bittersweet taste of dark chocolate! Hmmmmm

I know that you are dying to make these now!  How can you resist the classic flavor of S’mores in this totally yummy and gooey treat!  Maybe you will even let the kids have one for an after school snack…… or maybe you will keep them all to yourself.

Cherry Chocolate Chip Brownies ~ The Plaid & Paisley Kitchen ~ www.pandpkitchen.com

 

Let’s start this summer off with something great!  Like a rich chocolatey, full of sweet cherries, amazing brownie.  Oh and let’s make it cute and fun in a little mason jar.  I bet that you are all agreeing with me right now.

I don’t know about you but I am really stoked for Summer this year.  I can’t wait for the pool to open, to get back out on my super cute bicycle, oh and the Amusement Park is open now!  I am ready for long summer days with plenty of sunshine and filled with fun.

These brownies are just the trick to fuel your families sweet tooth.  Big enough to share or just fine to save one all for yourself.  You deserve it after all….. The kids home from school for 3 months.  Yep you deserve it!

Cherry Chocolate Chip Brownies ~ The Plaid & Paisley Kitchen ~ www.pandpkitchen.com

These are a snap to make and I promise you that they are the richest, most moist, chocolatey-est, {Yes that is a word I just made up} brownies you have ever had!

I used my best and most favorite brownie recipe.  Then I took it to the next level by adding some chocolate chips and maraschino cherries. Everyone loves chocolate chips and cherries!

I promise you that you will not be sorry that you made these.  You won’t even mind the calories.  Some treats are so good that they are totally worth the extra workout it takes!

Cherry Chocolate Chip Brownies ~ The Plaid & Paisley Kitchen ~ www.pandpkitchen.comI know that you are drooling now.  I know I am just remembering how much I loved every ooey gooey fudgy bite of them. The best part of these brownies was the sweet cherry and the fun crunch of the chocolate chips!

So head on into the kitchen and start to whip up a batch of these right now.  I used my homemade brownie recipe but if you want to make these even easier then just use a box mix brownie.  Although I highly recommend that you make them from scratch.  You will be so happy that you did!
