Cherry Pie Heart Pops

Feb. 13th, 2015

Cherry pie on a stick? Yes, please. Cherry pie on a stick in the shape of a heart? I die.

I think this is one of the cuter things I’ve made on BWG and it’s also really tasty. Give these out as valentine’s day gifts OR as party favors at a wedding. How adorable would that be? And cost effective!

Ingredients:
Ready made pie dough or homemade
Heart shape cookie cutter
Some fine grain sugar
Cherry Preserves
Fork
Lollipop sticks
1 egg

Instructions:
1. Roll out pie dough to 1/4″ thick
2. Cut dough hearts. You can be done now, it’s already cute. But let’s continue!
3. Lay half the dough hearts down and add a spoonful of cherry preserves
4. Put lollipop stick starting from the bottom of the preserves so that it sticks out of the bottom of the heart
5. Add egg mixture to the edge of the hearts, lay other dough piece on top and lightly press it down
6. Squish edges together using a fork (also makes them pretty)
7. Egg wash one side of each heart and lightly sprinkle with sugar
8. Bake for 15-25 minutes (checking at 10 minute mark) at 350 degrees
9. Share love on a stick!

Superbowl Rice Krispie Treats

Jan. 27th, 2015

I made these last year and they were a hit. How can you go wrong with delicious rice krispies in the shape of footballs? I made them early this year to show you guys how to make ’em, so I hosted a game night with friends (we are champions of all nerdy board games) and ate these fellas right up.

Ingredients:
Cocoa Krispies (duh)
10 oz. marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter
Optional: Green foam board, white tape

Directions:
1. Melt butter completely and then add marshmallows
2. Stirring continuously, melt marshmellows over low heat
3. Turn heat off and stir in cocoa krispies
4. While the mixture is still warm, wet hands and take a fistful of krispies; mold into a football shape
5. Repeat with entire mixture
6. Pop in the fridge until cool (Note: You may need to remold them if they start to lose their shape)
7. Add white icing to the balls per the directions on the video
8. Optional step: using white tape line the green foam board to look like a field. Line balls on the field and voila! Cutest game food of all time.

Thanks to La Jolla Mom for the idea!

How to pack a hat

Dec. 22nd, 2014

I have had many a travel experience during which I attempted to pack a hat in my suitcase. Upon arrival I always found my poor hat squashed to oblivion. To mitigate the issue, I decided to wear all my hats stacked up on my head on the plane to avoid the inevitable broken brim. My record is four hats at one time. My hats were intact; my pride however…not so much 🙂

A solution to all our hat-travel worries!
