When we saw a commercial for this frappe, it sounded super yummy, so we gave it a try a while back. If McDonald’s decides to keep it around permanently, it’ll be my new favourite!! Caramel and chocolate are another combo that just goes together perfectly. Now I won’t lie…it’s quite sweet!! So it’s definitely a treat. If caramel and chocolate are your favourite combo, try one before it disappears.
I know, I know…from the photo above, you’d think it was chili right?! Nope!! It actually IS the deconstructed stuffed pepper soup…just like the title states. I didn’t have any green peppers to use, so Iade it with red and yellow ones instead. Being that it’s a Crock Pot recipe, it was easy to prepare. I only had to brown the ground beef and sautee the onions before hand. Other then that, everything went into the pot (even uncooked rice with extra liquid) to set and forget!! Now, I was pressed for time, so I set it to cook on high for 5hrs. But when I checked it around the 4hrs mark it was ready 🙂 My hubby, our son and I all loved it (hubby and I added hot sauce for a bit of a kick to ours too)!! It tasted exactly like stuffed peppers, without all the work. I bet it will taste even better, with some green pepper in there next time too…omnomnom. If you love stuffed peppers, then I HIGHLY recommend this recipe!! I believe you’ll enjoy it as well 🙂 You can make it exactly the same as the recipe below, or add your own spin to it too…
So I didn’t get the chance to try out the Unicorn Lemonade from Starbucks a couple weeks ago…boo. But when I heard about the Midnight Mint Mocha, I knew I wasn’t going to miss this one!! Mint + chocolate is a magical combination, and this frapp hit it out of the park. I will definitely get another one next week during their 1/2 price frapps happy hour. Really hope they add it to their permanent menu, since to me, this is WAY better then the Java Chip Frapp. If you love mint and chocolates, then be sure to give this one a try, before it disappears – like the elusive unicorn…
The name is a mouthful isn’t it?? But a flavourful one at that!! My hubby and I really enjoyed these. We love almost anything covered in dark chocolate though…especially coconut and almond!! They’re a great light snack when you’re craving chocolate but don’t want a lot. We’ll be enjoying these again sometime for sure. Grab a bag yourselves and see for yourselves…
We bought these back in the fall of last year, when we saw them in the store. I love most things pumpkin spice, so it was a no-brainer to try them out!! And they didn’t disappoint!! Now, being that it’s ‘frosted’ it was on the sweet side, but it definitely had the pumpkin spice flavour I love. If you’re into pumpkin spice, like I am, I bet you’ll enjoy this cereal too!!
Hope you all enjoyed the game with great people, and of course…food!! This year I tried two new recipes for our game day meal.
First one being the Super Duper Garlic Dip. It’s a simple recipe consisting of 3 ingredients. Cream cheese, mayo and garlic (I had minced, so used that). I also added some toasted garlic and onion dip mix to added flavour without salt. I placed it all in my Little Dipper mini Crock Pot, and let it warm up for about an hour, stirring occasionally. Served it with veggies and chips and we really enjoyed it!!
Next I tried out this Seven Layer Dip Cups Recipe. Usually I make a nacho casserole, but thought I’d change it up. Another easy recipe, that didn’t take long to make, with a 15mins bake time between steps.
The first step called for placing refried beans and shredded cheese on top of a tortilla square. I also put a little bit of queso sauce in this layer, and though it made the bottom a little soggy, we enjoyed it.
Then I placed another tortilla square on top and placed it in the oven. At this time I got the condiments ready. I didn’t feel like making guacamole, so used chopped avocado instead. 15mins later I took the tray out of the oven and let it rest for a minute. After which I placed salsa, avocado, sour cream, tomato and green onion, like you see in the first photo. They turned out great and were a nice change from what I usually make 🙂
