Today I will be sharing a recipe made with items from several of our event sponsors, including: Adams Extract and Spice and SprinklePop.* But first, all of today's posts...


Cottontail Confetti Krispies

Inspired by SprinklePop's Cottontail Confetti Sprinkle Mix, a blend of pearlized grass green sprinkles and pastel Easter egg confetti, I decided to make our favorite easy dessert: rice krispies treats. I also added a few drops of the natural food coloring from Adams Extract and Spice. You can read more about them in my Spring Bling Meyer Lemon Almond Cake post.

Ingredients

  • 6 T butter + more for greasing pan
  • 6 C marshmallows
  • 6 C rice krispies (I use an organic puffed brown rice cereal)
  • 1 t lemon extract 
  • food coloring, optional (I used red and yellow from Adams Extract and Spice)
  • sprinkles (I used the Cottontail Confetti mix from SprinklePop)


Procedure

Butter a pan; I used a 9" round. Cover the bottom with a layer of sprinkles and set aside.


Place the butter and marshmallows in a large pot and heat until melted. Add in the extract and food coloring, if using. Stir until mixed.


Fold in the rice krispies and stir until well-coated. Turn the mixture into the prepared pan. And, with slightly moistened hands, press firmly down to compact the mixture.


Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes until slightly hardened. Invert onto a serving platter. Let it cool completely before slicing.


There are so many possible variations you can make with rice krispie treats. What's your favorite?

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
