Indoor Smores

3/4 cup light corn syrup

1 pkg. chocolate chips

1 tsp. vanilla

3 tbsp. butter

1 box of Golden Graham Cereal

3 c. mini marshmallows

Heat syrup, butter, and chocolate chips to a boil (be sure to stir constantly). Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal in a bowl. Be sure to coat all of the cereal. Add marshmallows 1 cup at a time. Finally, place cereal in a 9×13 pan. I like to press down the mix and let stand for one hour before serving.

***This recipe used to be on the box of Golden Grahams but it isn't any more so when I found it I had to write it down somewhere!  So good!!

Macaroni Grill Rosemary Bread

2 T. yeast

2 T. sugar
2 c. hot water

6-7 c. flour (white, wheat or half & half)

2 T. rosemary

2 t. salt

Add yeast, sugar, water and 1 c. of the flour in a bowl. Let rise in bowl for 10 minutes. Add the salt, rosemary and the rest of the flour until the dough ball is smooth and slightly sticky to the touch. Roll dough into two large round loaves, or four small. Place the round loaves of dough on a greased cookie sheet. Let the bread rise until they double in size (about 30-40 minutes). Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, or until top is golden brown. When out of the oven, melt butter over the top of the bread and then sprinkle with extra salt.

Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie

  • 1 C Fruit juice
  • 1/2 cup instant oats

I put the oatmeal in first, mix that around a little, then add the other stuff and mix it up.  I substitute just about any frozen fruit I have on hand. Makes a healthy, filling breakfast!
