Get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try one of these delicious and easy recipes this week! This week I highly recommend making the Crock Pot Eye of Round with Mushroom & Onion Gravy and the White Bean and Corn Veggie Burgers!
Happy Sunday TKW Family! How was your week? Mine was pretty busy both at work and here at the house. Since we’re both starting to feel better it was time to tackle some of the house chores. I will say this, I will never EVER have 5 acres of property again to maintain. OMG it’s unreal! Growing up we had 41 acres but there was also 8 of us. This place, I swear it has magic grass and weeds that as soon as you cut them they’ve already grown an inch! I used to scoff at folks for having fake grass planted but I’m telling you what guys, those people are on to something ingenious!
But I know me, I cannot go without real grass in my yard. I’m a Pennsylvania girl. I need to feel see grass even though it’s hell on my allergies and I don’t like the feeling of it touching my bare feet. But then again I’m that weirdo that hates being barefoot. Like I need socks or shoes on. Yet growing up my sister would never wear shoes. We had about a 900′ driveway that was made out of red dog rocks. Those things were sharp and hurt like the dickens. Dianna would walk barefoot on the driveway to get the mail. One time Dad busted her cutting the grass barefoot! Stupid, I know! When he asked why in the hell she was doing that she simply replied “I like the feeling of the cut grass on my toes.” Dad just “If you don’t put shoes on right now you won’t have any toes to feel that grass!”
Unfortunately Mr. Fantabulous overdid it yesterday as his chest started hurting again and it was hard for him to catch his breath again. I’m worried about him. All of his tests have come back negative thus far (which is good) but the tests for that Valley Fever still aren’t back yet. He goes to see the Infectious Disease doctor this week so I’m praying they know exactly what caused his sickness and if he’s on the right treatment path. Today I told him he’s to lie in bed and take it easy. Of course, being stubborn he’s fighting me as there is so much work to get done but his health needs to come first.
Today I have two client recipes to make up that will be on the website this week. One will be for these incredible Cinnamon Crumble muffins that I literally could not stop eating! And second are my Touchdown nachos to go with pizza. It’s the perfect Friday night lights meal! I also want to make up a No Bake Cookie Butter pie. I, who should never grocery shop when I’m hungry, bought a package of Oreo Cookie butter cookies. I have a bit of an obsession of Cookie Butter. It’s wrong on every single level but dear God it’s amazing! Most stores nowadays carry it. It’s pretty much located where you buy your peanut butter.
If you’ve never had it, it tastes like a spiced cookie that is ground up and blended into a smooth creamy “peanut butter” consistency but it tastes like a cookie. It has hints of cardamon, cinnamon and more warm spices and it is DELISH! Well the cookies are good but for me the graham cookie overpowered the cookie butter filling. HOWEVER since Oreos make the BEST pie crust, I’m going to transform those cookies into one amazing cookie butter pie crust!
What else… So I decided to make Liege waffles. What sets Liege waffles apart from normal waffles is that they are a dough rather than a batter. They also have yeast in them and pearl sugar. Pearl Sugar is bits of sugar that, when baked in the waffles, caramelize and give the waffles a crisp and crunch to them. Head over to Instagram to see some killer pics and videos!
And these 3 pictures….
Oh lord have mercy! I’m in Liege Waffle Heaven right now!!! 😍 Those Crispy, caramelized pearl sugar bits are pure crack!!! #liege #liegewaffle #omg #forkyeah #thekitchenwhisperer #chef #brunch #isitbrunchyet #kissmyself #waffles #pureheaven #pittsburgh #cheflife #feedfeed #thefeedfeed #foodandwine #fwx #f52grams #foodphotography #foodporn #foodnetwork
I seriously am in love with these waffles and you guys know me; I’m not a big waffle lover but these.. I can so get down with! I’ll share the recipe but keep in mind that you NEED Pearl Sugar and the dough takes 12-24 hours to make. It’s a double rise, with the last one happening in the fridge overnight. But again, so worth it! Also FYI.. if your waffle maker does NOT have removable plates for cleaning then it’s a PITA to clean. I HIGHLY recommend getting one that has removable plates! For round waffles get this one:
For square waffles, get this one:
Also, did you guys see the most adorable pig towel my girlfriend Sara got me? Seriously this girl is my twin! LOVE this towel and love her to pieces!
