Daughter: I need to take a treat to Spanish class tomorrow for Cinco de Mayo celebration. 😊

Me: Why are you just telling me? It’s seven o clock! ☹️

Daughter: I forgot. 💁🏻‍♀️

We’ve all been there…

Thank goodness for Pinterest! I found this quick and easy recipe for angel food cake churro bites. Luckily, I had all the ingredients on hand…all four of them! They turned out good. Hope the class enjoys them!

Ingredients:

Pre made angel food cake or loaf

Cinnamon

Sugar

Oil

Directions:

Cut the angel food cake into cubes. Mix equal amounts of sugar and cinnamon. I didn’t measure. Heat up oil in a deep skillet on the stove. Put angel food cake cubes in the skillet. Turn them after about thirty seconds…be careful, they burn fast! Set on a plate covered with paper towels and drain. Roll them in the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Put in an airtight container.

Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies…

The peanut butter burger recipe wasn’t very popular, so let’s try this one.

I was going to make these for Valentine’s Day, but didn’t have time. I decided to make them this weekend. They were easy and quick…and tasty too! I think next time I’ll try chocolate cake mix and peanut butter chips because I’m not giving up on ways to use peanut butter in my recipes!!

Ingredients

1 Box Strawberry Cake Mix

1/2 cup Vegetable Oil

2 Eggs

2 cups White Chocolate Chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir cake mix, vegetable oil, and eggs in a bowl until well mixed. Pour in white chocolate chips and stir. Place large spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 12~14 mins. Let set on pan for 2 mins then place on a wire rack for cooling.

Peanut Butter Burger…

Yes, you read that right! Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the peanut butter burger!

I love peanut butter so when I saw the recipe, I had to make it. I like it! You can add additional toppings if you like…pickles, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes. I kept it simple.

Below is the recipe. I left out the part on how to cook the hamburgers and bacon.I have faith you can figure that part out on your own! Let me know what you think in the comments.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

6 tablespoons creamy peanut butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

8 slices bacon, crisp cooked

4 hamburger buns

Directions:

In a large bowl combine ground beef, salt, and pepper. In a small, microwave-safe bowl heat 2 tablespoons peanut butter for 20 to 30 seconds or until melted. Add melted peanut butter to meat mixture; mix well. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.

Spread toasted buns with remaining peanut butter. Place patties on buns and top with bacon. If desired, add additional toppings.

Stuffed Pepper Casserole…

This casserole was a hit at my house tonight…and my daughter is a very picky eater. It’s even better than actual stuffed peppers in my opinion because it’s all mixed together in one dish! 

Ingredients:

2 green bell peppers 

1 red bell pepper

1 pound ground turkey or beef

1 bag of boil in a bag rice cooked on stove

1 can diced tomatos (any variety)

Onions (optional) I used dry minced

1 bag shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

Italian seasoning

Trader Joe’s 21 Season Salute (optional)

Directions:

Cook ground turkey or beef on stove and drain. Set aside. Grease a 9×13 casserole dish. Cut out the cores of the peppers. Slice into strips and dice. Put in greased dish. Put the remaining ingredients into the dish and mix well. (only use 1/2 bag of the shredded cheese at this time)

Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, top with the rest of the shredded cheese, and put back in the oven. Broil for 5 minutes until cheese bubbles and browns. Remove. Let cool and enjoy. 

Please remember I don’t measure…I just add until I think it looks good…and I am of the opinion, the cheesier the better! You can add other ingredients or seasonings.  If you try it, be sure and let me know what you think.

BBQ Chicken Pineapple Pizza…

The following recipe is quick, easy, and delicious…a special request from my daughter for supper tonight. 

I cooked the boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the crockpot overnight on low. I let the chicken simmer in chicken broth. Once I was ready to make the pizza, I removed it from the crock pot and shredded it with a metal hand chopper.


Ingredients:

1 can Pineapple chunks or tidbits

1 bottle BBQ sauce (use whatever you like)

1 package shredded pizza cheese

1 pizza crust (I used Mama Mary’s) 

Shredded chicken (about 4 cups)

I cooked the pizza on a baking stone. Put crust on stone and spread BBQ sauce on crust. I only used half of the bottle.


Spread chicken evenly over the crust and season with your favorite seasoning. I used Trader Joe’s 21 Season Salute.


Spread pineapples on top of chicken and top with shredded pizza cheese. Use whatever amount you prefer. Personally I think the more cheese the better!


Bake in over for 10 to 12 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes, slice and enjoy! 


I hope you’ll try the recipe. The best part is you can add whatever ingredients you like. Because I never really measure anything you can use more or less of the mentioned ingredients. As I’ve said before….make it your own!

It’s  very simple and quick and when it comes to everyday meals, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
