Soft Serve Banana Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce

2 Ingredient Soft Serve Banana Ice Cream

I am so in love with this.  I cannot believe A. how easy it is and B. how delicious and healthy it is.  So my old middle school BFF, Stephanie @ The Cozy Cook who I reconnected with over some Poutine, posted this Soft Serve Banana this weekend and the minute I saw it, I had to try it.  Have you checked out her blog yet? You should, because it is amazing. Not only is she and her little pup Toby so stinkin’ cute, but her food and photography is killer!

Anyway seriously, once I saw this I cut up some bananas and threw them in the freezer.  Because well, we always have bananas in this house.  Then I decided to make a really simple and delicious strawberry sauce to top it with. Because what’s more delicious than bananas and strawberries? Not much.  Not much at all.

Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips

Make your OWN Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips from Scratch!One day a former co-worker of mine, Angie, posted on Facebook a scratch cooking mission to me of Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips.  Mission accepted.  Ok, so these obviously aren’t totally from scratch because we haven’t started making cheddar cheeses yet, and even though I have the cultures waiting patiently in my fridge for sour cream, I haven’t bought the Yogotherm yet that I need to make it.  It’s totally on my list because I want to make sour cream and yogurt, but my husband and I are on strict house-saving mode so discretionary funds are have been put on a tight limit.  And even though I had decided I’d buy it this past week, that money ended up going towards a super cute Banana Republic coat that was super-duper clearance…  two of my weaknesses.  So anyway, the yogotherm is still on the list.  It’s kind of pushed back a bit further because I may have gotten myself a new pair of shoes this weekend too.  I’m so weak.Make your OWN Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips from Scratch!Anyway, this afternoon, I finally had some time to take crack at these chips.  How do you make flavored chips? I had no idea.  But I figured since it was just potatoes flavored with cheddar and sour cream, that I just needed to mix potatoes with cheddar and sour cream and then bake them into a chip.  Sure.  So I peeled and boiled a few potatoes until they were uber soft, then I added about 2 tablespoons of sour cream and about a 1/3 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.  Since my mom was just here and we went to the Tillamook Cheese factory, I happened to have some of their smoked cheddar which is soooo good.Make your OWN Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips from Scratch!Then I gave it a good mash until I had  some super creamy cheddar and sour cream mashed potatoes.Make your OWN Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips from Scratch!With these mashed potatoes I just spread a little bit out onto some parchment paper into ‘chip’ like shapes.  My chip shaping clearly needs some work.  I didn’t make that many, mainly because we don’t need that many chips in our house and also because my studly husband was on his way to the gym and hadn’t had lunch so I gave him some cheddar and sour cream mashed potatoes to eat for some workout fuel.Make your OWN Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips from Scratch!Then I baked them at 350° for about 15 minutes.  When they came out though, they weren’t crisp, so I decided to finish them, I needed to fry them.  A food dehydrator would have been perfect for this chip making process, although our last one broke and the money we were going to use to get another one, I kind of bought new bedside lamps that matched our new bed set instead.  My husband did not see the value in having coordinating lamps, but I slowly convinced him how nice it is to have matching bedroom furniture, and by convinced him, I mean he was finally just sick of me talking about these lamps and acquiesced.  I did wish I had a food dehydrator for these chips though.  Also on our list after the yogotherm.Make your OWN Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips from Scratch!So, then they went into a hot pot of vegetable oil to fry and crisp up.Make your OWN Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips from Scratch!And after about 90 seconds, they were good to go!Make your OWN Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips from Scratch!With just a little sprinkle of kosher salt, we had ourselves some super crispy little chips that actually did have a cheddar and sour cream flavor!  Neat.  Thanks Angie for the idea!  I’d say I would bring you some, but I think my husband may have eaten them all already…

Parmesan Garlic Baked Chicken Wings

Parmesan Garlic Baked Chicken Wings. Guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser but baked to crispy perfection for a healthier spin!Parmesan Garlic Baked Chicken Wings. Guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser but baked to crispy perfection for a healthier spin!

Oh pregnancy cravings… I’ve actually managed to make it through most of the past 9 months without any crazy cravings.  Aside from an unquenchable thirst for coconut water within the first 4 weeks (probably because I was dehydrated), I’ve thankfully been able to eat really healthy and what I want.  Most of the time I’ve had a harder time actually figuring out what it was that I wanted.  Until recently.  These past couple of weeks the cravings have finally hit me.  Hard.  One night, it was an old school chicken noodle casserole (and totally not from scratch, the kind that uses canned cream of mushroom soup and fried french onions).  Then it was meatloaf (stay tuned for that recipe!).  Then it was a spinach and beet salad.  And recently- chicken wings. Parmesan Garlic Baked Chicken Wings to be exact.

Saltines From Scratch are a fun, easier than you think, and tastier than store bought cracker to make at home!Oh man I wish I had figured this recipe for Saltines From Scratch out about 7 months ago!  Although I have to say that I’ve been really lucky with how easy this pregnancy has been (knock on wood), there were definitely a couple of days in the 1st trimester that Saltines and Ginger Ale were my best friend and these homemade guys would have been amaazzinngg.

Super Easy Red Velvet Cookies

Super easy, super soft Red Velvet Cookies. Made from scratch and the perfect quick cookie to make when you have a red velvet craving!

Super easy, super soft Red Velvet Cookies Admittedly, I don’t have that big of a sweet tooth.  For desserts, give me a cheese plate over anything sweet or chocolaty.  With that said, when I do want something sweet, I really want it.  And since we have a rule in our house that if we want something sweet we have to make it ourselves, when I have the rare sweet tooth craving, it has to be easy.
