July 2012 Recipes
It’s the last day of the month and time for me to recap the noteworthy things I made this month:
Spinach Artichoke and Roasted Red Pepper Cheesy Squares – If you like spinach and artichoke dip, that’s what these are, but in bar form and we loved them.
Thanks to Pinterest, many people told me they tried making peanut butter at home and were surprised at how easy it is.
And how amazing it tastes.
Cinnamon Sugar Crust Cream Cheese Danish Squares – made with an easy shortcut and remind me of Entenmann’s danish
Chocolate Cake Batter Milkshake – One of my favorite milkshakes, ever
Barbeque Tofu with Pineapple and Mango (vegan, GF)
Corn and Double Cheese Dip – can be baked or served cold (vegan, GF, can be made reduced/no fat)
Chocolate Chip and Cherry Blondies – Thanks to so many of you who made these within a day or two of the recipe being posted and who wrote to me telling me about it and what kind of customizing you did to your versions. I love that kind of feedback.
Homemade Thin Mints – vegan, no-bake, ridiculously easy
A few noteworthy and fun non-food posts:
Thursday Things – Interviewed and featured on the Better Homes & Gardens website.
Honored and humbled!
What were the highlights of your July?
I tried to post plenty of no-bake and no-fuss recipes this month, especially since it’s the peak of summer. Very few people have the time or desire to stand in a (hot) kitchen all day and cook when it’s warm outside, or the kids are out of school, and the outdoors or your family rather than the kitchen is calling your name.
And of course, our month-long trip to Aruba that I knew I had coming was the total highlight.
Thanks for the Capresso Espresso and Cappuccino Machine Giveaway entries
