Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

Filed under: News — Missy @ 8:59 pm

Making the perfect Hard Boiled Egg is really simple.  I tried for many years – sometimes they were not done or too done – to find the perfect system.  This one works great!

1)  Place eggs in a large saucepan.

2)  Fill saucepan with enough COLD water to cover the eggs.

3)  Bring to a boil.

4)  Once the water is boiling, turn off heat and cover saucepan.  Set timer for 12 minutes.

5)  When timer goes off, immediately place eggs in an ice bath.  This will help with peeling.

6)  Keep eggs in bath for at least 10 minutes or until well chilled.

Super Simple Chocolate Peanut Butter & Oat Snack Bars

Filed under: News — Missy @ 9:04 pm

More and more of our guests are in need of gluten-free diet.  Here is a super simple way to have a sweet treat!

2 tablespoons chocolate chips

2 to 3 tablespoons peanut butter

2 tablespoons milk (or almond milk for our vegan friends)

1/2 cup oats

Optional: 1 tablespoon of any dry ingredient you would like to add such as: sunflower seeds, raisins, extra chocolate chips, cocunut flakes, nuts, etc.

1) Melt the first three ingredients together in the microwave using 30 second intervals, stirring each time.

2) Add the oats and any optional ingredients.  You will want this mixture to be fairly dry (I probably ended up using close to one cup of oats all together).  If its not dry enough, add more oats one tablespoon at a time.

3) Press mixture into bars or balls.  I lined a small Pyrex baking dish with scranwrap to make removing the bars easy. I cut mine at this point.

4) Put in the fridge for 30 minutes or until bars harden.

5) Enjoy!

Grandma Binder’s Chex Mix Recipe

Filed under: News — Missy @ 11:11 pm

Growing up, my grandmother and grandfather always had a surplus of Chex Mix during the holiday season.  It was one of those things that once you started eating it…you couldn’t stop!  Everyone had a favorite ingredient.  Mine was the Wheat Chex that had extra spices stuck to it.

Don’t even try to make Chex Mix in the microwave.  It just can’t compare.  Here’s the super-easy method for making Grandma’s Chex Mix.  Its been kept under lock and key…until now.  Make it one night while wrapping presents.  Grandpa always said the key was in the stirring.

12 oz boxes of:  Wheat Chex, Cheerios and Rice Chex
1.5 lb bag of pretzel rings
2 – 12 oz jars of mixed nuts
1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
2 cups veg oil
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon seasoned salt

Combine cereal, nuts and pretzels into a large roasting pan.  Combine oil, Worcestershire, garlic salt and seasoned salt.  Pour over cereal and stir well.  Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours; stirring well every 15 minutes.
