This recipe is a labor of love and it’s well worth the time and effort. I got most of the ingredients from Cost Plus World Market in their baking product section minus the Bahlsen biscuits that I grabbed in the cookie and cake aisle.Make this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetaway You’re going to want to start with preparing your pudding. Take your pudding packets and place them in a saucepan. Add your sugar and milk and heat it on medium heat. Before it started thickening, I added one pureed banana for flavor. You can whisk the pudding by hand but it may end up clumpy while it cools so I recommend using a handheld mixer.Once your pudding has thickened, transfer it to a cool bowl and cover the top with some cling film. Place it directly on the pudding to avoid a skin forming. Let it set in the fridge for 2 hours.Next is your crust (and the best part), take a package of Balshen Liebetz Butter Cookies and pulse them to a crumb. Melt your butter and add your cookie crumbs along with the sugar and mix. Place it in a pie tin and bake for 5-7 minutes until golden.Make this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawayMake this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawayMake this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawayMake this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawayMake this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawayMake this delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe with ingredients from World Market #ad #WorldMarketTribe #HolidayGetawaySet it aside and allow it to cool. Now let’s make the ganache. Heat up your cream in a small saucepan and pour it over your Guittard Chocolate Chips. Cover it for 5 minutes and then stir until it’s all combined. If your chocolate starts to cool before it’s incorporated into the cream, pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time.Pour 1/8-1/4 cup of chocolate ganache over your cookie crust. You want to then swirl the pie pan so that the ganache covers the sides of the crust. You want just a light coating of the ganache. Refrigerate for 15 minutes so it can solidify.Remove the crust from the fridge and thinly slice two bananas. You’ll want to place those slices directly onto the ganache. Next, add the pudding to the top of the banana slices. Place some cling film over the pudding and chill until you’re ready to serve.

Once you’re ready to serve your delicious Banana Cream Pie, add freshly whipped cream to the top. Make it even more decadent and add some banana chips for a little added texture.

Yum! You’ve got a delicious Banana Cream Pie recipe that your family will rave about for years.

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas, sliced

Whipped Cream

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Ganache

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup Guittard Milk Chocolate Chips

Banana Pudding

  • 1 banana, pureed
  • 4 cups whole milk

Crust

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 package Bahlsen Butter Biscuits
  • 1/4 cup banana chips, optional

Instructions

Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Pulse your Bahlsen Butter Biscuits to crumbs. Mix with your sugar and melted butter. Press into a 9" pie pan and bake for 5-7 minutes, until golden brown. Set aside to cool.

Banana Pudding

  1. Prepare your packaged pudding according to package directions. Before the mixture comes to a boil, add in your pureed banana. Stir well and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Ganache

  1. Heat your cream on medium heat until hot, pour over your chocolate chips and cover for 5 minutes. Mix well and set aside for 15 minutes.

Assembly

  1. Once your biscuit crust is cool, pour about a 1/4 cup of ganache over the top. Swirl your crust so that the ganache covers the side of the crust. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. After your ganache has set, place the sliced bananas over the ganache. Add the pudding on top of the bananas and refrigerate until you're ready to serve.
  3. Mix your sugar and heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Spread or pipe the whipped cream on top of the pudding and place the banana chips for extra decoration. Serve along side the leftover ganache. This will stay well in your fridge for a day but it's best to prepare it the day of because the bananas may turn.

Mushroom Stroganoff Recipe and celebrating Breast Cancer Survivors

May 15, 2017

This post is sponsored by World Market and all opinions are my own. This post also contains affiliate links, thank you for your support.Vegetarian Stroganoff that is Cancer Friendly

Have you ever in your life felt so hopeless? Have you ever wanted to take away pain from someone who was suffering? I have and I never want to experience that again in my life. I’ve learned throughout the years that when someone is struggling or is dealing with an illness, the best thing we can offer is our company and friendship. Whether that comes through a meal, or cleaning, or just listening – everyone needs that sense of feeling they are human. I know for my husbands culture, ways to comfort are through food. I’m going to show you this simple cancer-friendly Mushroom Stroganoff Recipe using the most delicious egg pasta you’ve ever had and one that you can take to others and share the love.Mushroom Strognoff Recipe-23First what you want to do is reconstitute the Mushroom Bistro Blend in some hot beef stock. Stroganoff has a delicious, deep beef flavor but I wanted to create the texture and taste without the red meat so that we can cut out that probability of developing cancer from it. The pasta dish is full of flavor and feel free to add additional spices that fit your taste-buds.Mushroom Strognoff Recipe-10I boiled the Egg Pasta for 8-minutes so that I could achieve that perfect al-dente feel against the chew of the Bistro Mushroom Blend. Mushroom Strognoff Recipe-15Next you’ll slice your medium onion and place that into a 10-inch saute pan with 2 tbsp. of butter. Drain your mushrooms but keep the stock for later. Add the mushrooms to your onions and cook for an additional 10-minutes.Mushroom Strognoff Recipe-11In a separate bowl, place 1/2 cup stock with your flour, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and add that to your mushroom mixture. Allow the flour to cook out and then add 1/2 cup to 1 cup of the reserved stock and boil the mix for an additional 1-minute. Take your pan off the heat and add your sour cream and stir. Taste and season it with your favorite spices however you’d like. Mushroom Strognoff Recipe-17Plate your noodles and add the Mushroom Stroganoff on top and serve hot. Add some sliced green onions or parsley for color.

Mushroom Stroganoff Recipe

  • Prep Time: 20m
  • Cook Time: 20m
  • Total Time: 40m
  • Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 package Grand Mere Egg Pasta
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 jar, World Market Bistro Mushroom Blend
  • 1 32 oz., beef stock
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream

Instructions

  1. Heat up your beef stock in a quart sauce pan and pour over your rinsed mushrooms. Allow the mushrooms to reconstitute for 15 minutes.
  2. Boil your Grand Mere Egg Pasta according to package directions and set aside.
  3. Slice your onion and add it to a 10-inch skillet. Drain your mushrooms and set aside the broth. Add your reconstituted mushrooms to your onions and cook for an additional 10 minutes until the onions are translucent.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together 1/2 cup beef stock and the flour. Stir until it is combined and then add in the Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.
  5. Once onions are translucent, add in your flour and stock mixture and cook for an additional 1 minute. Gradually add in 1/2 cup of the stock you set aside to make the mixture loose.
  6. Remove your pan from the heat and add in your sour cream. Stir to combine and taste. Make any desired seasonings now. If the sauce is still too thick, go ahead and add more stock. It should be the consistency of whipping cream.

The main reason why I make this meal to serve others who are sick are because I know some strong women who have dealt with too much in their life and they’ve lived to tell their story about how they survived. Not everyone in that situation is as lucky as they were but it does take some diligence on our part. My grandmother and aunt are both survivors of breast cancer and they’re survivors because they did mammograms early and before they felt any lumps.

It’s up to us as women to be diligent about our own health. Women have a nurturing tendency so it’s often seen that they’ll take care of others before themselves. We need to be the change in that because if we don’t take care of ourselves, how can we be around for others? Eat healthy, exercise, do all the things we know we should do actually do them and succeed at it. Do it with me so that we can live long lives together and shower our stories on our families.

Instant Pot Sunday Roast Dinner

April 14, 2017

Instant Pot Roast Beef Dinner RecipeRoast on a Sunday is pretty much a staple in this house. I’ll buy it while it’s on sale and then, if I remember, throw it in the Crock Pot in the morning before we head off to church. Who am I kidding anymore? I’m not that organized so the Instant Pot was the best thing I ever bought. I’m going to show you how I make my Instant Pot Sunday roast dinner.
Instant Pot sunday roast beef dinnerbest cut of beef for sunday roast dinnerIf your meat is frozen, just throw it in but if it’s thawed be sure to saute it so you can seal in the juices. I have the 7-in-1 6qt Instant Pot and I also have the 6-in-1. They’re both similar by the size and ease of use but I’d recommend the 7-in-1 even if you don’t think you’ll ever make yogurt. It’s just a more user-friendly machine. The best pot roast dinner recipeI place the heat on high and sauté for about 5 min each side after I’ve salt and peppered it up. You can put a little oil in the pan but I don’t have an issue with a little sticking to the bottom while I sauté.

Next you’ll change the setting to manual and high pressure. You can’t just switch from one button to the other on the Instant Pot, you have to cancel the last function and then press the one you want. That’s probably my biggest issue with the Instant Pot. Easy instant pot recipesgood roast beef recipesI like to add a Lipton Onion Soup packet and about 2 cups of beef broth. If you like your carrots a little mushy, this is the time to put them in as well. My baby likes mushy carrots. roast beef dinner recipeCheck the lid and be sure that the sealing ring is not lifted anywhere and place that on your Instant Pot. Be sure the valve is set so it’ll close and wait for the Instant Pot to come to pressure. It take a while for that to happen, maybe 10 min, but I usually like to help speed that along and add hot liquid and have my pan inside warmed up. how to seal the instant potAfter 35-40 min. you can either do a quick release or natural release. The QR is just going to give you a quicker satisfaction. Instant pot roast beefI remove the carrots and pot roast out of the Instant Pot and set it aside. Next, put your Instant Pot back on sauté. Once it’s boiling, add your gravy mix. I like to use the McCormick brown gravy mix and just dump it as I go, no measuring. Whisk vigorously to remove all the lumps.  You’ll have a yummy brown gravy that’s complete with all the bits from the pot roast and maybe have a few carrots mixed in there. That’s my favorite kind of gravy. the best brown gravy mixinstant pot roast beef recipePour the gravy over your delicious, quick cooking, pot roast and serve with a side of yummy bread and the best ever mashed potatoes. Enjoy!

Disneyland’s Copycat Meatless Monte Cristo Sandwich & Southern California Vacation Giveaway!

April 7, 2017

Create this delicious Disney Meatless Monte Cristo sandwich. So yummy and worth the calories!I’ve been to Disneyland once…once. It was for my 26th birthday and we had three little kids in tow. I slightly wish that it was just me alone because I’d be able to soak in all the elements but the kids have always remembered the light-sabers and the ride I took Freddie on and laughed at him when he was crying. Another thing I remember is the Monte Cristo sandwich from Cafe Orleans. You’ll find it pretty close to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and after you’ve past the famous Dole Whip station in Adventureland.

Create this delicious Disney Meatless Monte Cristo sandwich. So yummy and worth the calories!For this series I’ve partnered with other bloggers to show you our favorite Disneyland copycat recipes and I’m going to share with you Disney’s Meatless Monte Cristo Sandwich. The original has turkey, ham and swiss but I wanted to fancy it up a bit and do the meatless version with swiss, mozzarella and double cream brie cheese. I’m serving it along side a store bought berry puree and of course I have to fry it and dust it with powdered sugar.

Meatless Monte Cristo Sandwich – A Disney Copycat Recipe

Create this delicious Disney Meatless Monte Cristo sandwich. So yummy and worth the calories!

  • Prep Time: 5m
  • Cook Time: 6m
  • Total Time: 11m

Ingredients

Other Ingredients

  • blackberry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 3 cups canola oil

Sandwich

  • slices, brioche bread
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 slices, double-cream brie cheese
  • 2 slices, swiss cheese
  • 2 slices, fresh mozzarella

Batter

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 egg

Instructions

  1. Preheat your Canola oil to 350* in a frying pan.
  2. Spread the dijon mustard on the brioche bread, place a slice of swiss cheese on each slice of bread. Place the brie cheese and mozzarella on one side of the sandwich and sandwich the two slices together. Cut into a diagonal half.
  3. Place each half into the batter and coat well. Carefully place them into the oil and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from the pan onto paper towels to soak up the excess oil. Cut each half in half again and dust with powdered sugar. Serve along side black berry preserves.

To start we’ll make the batter. Mix all the ingredients together well and let it rest while you assemble your sandwich. I used Trader Joe’s brioche loaf as the bread. You can grab all the cheeses there too. It I grabbed mine at my local Krogers.

Create this delicious Disney Meatless Monte Cristo sandwich. So yummy and worth the calories!I removed the rind from the brie cheese and just sliced it up the best I could but since it’s almost like cream cheese, it’ll be a little rustic looking. I sliced up some fresh mozzarella and I grabbed some sliced Swiss cheese at the butchers counter.

Create this delicious Disney Meatless Monte Cristo sandwich. So yummy and worth the calories!Slather each slice of brioche with Dijon Mustard and then on each slice of bread add a slice of Swiss cheese. Sandwich in the mozzarella and the brie and put both slices together. Now cut the sandwich triangle way in half and slather in that batter. Heat your oil to 350• and fry baby fry!

I let it fry for about 2-3 minutes on each side until it was pretty golden. I flipped the sandwich away from me so I didn’t get splattered and let the other side cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. I let it drain on a paper towel and sliced each half in half again so I had 4 triangles of sandwich. I served it along side a blackberry jelly which was just store bought. You can go all out making your own but it’s just another step I didn’t want to do. I wanted to get right down to eating this Disney Food classic.

Create this delicious Disney Meatless Monte Cristo sandwich. So yummy and worth the calories!Now to the good part! Get Away Today has generously donated a trip for 4 to head on down to Southern California! You choose where you want to go but I’d personally pick Disneyland so that I can eat all these yummy recipes without having to make them myself!

Peeps Rice Krispie Treats

Peeps rice krispie treats recipeOh my gosh! These are so good and not too overly sweet. Our kids love these as a fun Easter snack. I’m going to show you how to create your own Peeps Rice Krispie Treats for Easter.

You’ll then pour it onto a 1/4 sheet pan. To press down the treats easily, wet your hands a little. It’ll make the mixture not as hot to the touch and you’ll have no marshmallows stuck to your hands afterwards. peeps recipesAllow the mixture to cool and cut out as many bunnies as you can. I got 8 out of each 1/4 sheet pan. Now take your black writing gel and place three dots to represent the eyes and the nose of the bunnies. Now they look just like giant peeps and taste delicious.fun kids easter treatsSometimes I find Peeps overly sweet because of the sugar coating so I’ve found that mixing them with more regular marshmallows makes them more tolerable to eat a larger amount. 😂
