   1 tablespoon minced garlic

   1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

   1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

   1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

   1/4 teaspoon onion powder

   1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

   Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and chopped mushroom stems to the skillet. Fry until any moisture has disappeared, taking care not to burn garlic. Set aside to cool.
   When garlic and mushroom mixture is no longer hot, stir in cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, black pepper, onion powder and cayenne pepper. Mixture should be very thick. Using a little spoon, fill each mushroom cap with a generous amount of stuffing. Arrange the mushroom caps on prepared cookie sheet.
   Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the mushrooms are piping hot and liquid starts to form under caps.

1 Egg

Sparkle Sugar for sprinkling on sticks

Caramel Sauce and/or Ice Cream for dipping

A food processor..optional!

Unroll each crust and spread the Filling onto one of them…leave a 1/8″ border around the edge

Put the other Pie Crust on top and press lightly to secure it.

Make an egg wash by mixing the egg with a splash of water.

Brush some egg wash on the top, and sprinkle it with the Sugar to resemble“Salt”…

Cut strips about 1/2″ thick and then cut those into “fry” shapes…

Place them carefully onto a baking sheet and bake them at 350 degrees for approx. 12 minutes, or until they’re slightly golden and firm

Make sure and serve them with some Caramel “Ketchup” for dipping…

Diet Coke Brownies
1 box fudge brownie mix ( I used the 9 x 13 pan size)
1 (12 oz.) can Diet Coke

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl dump the brownie mix in. Open that can of Diet Coke (try not to drink any of it), and slowly pour over the dry brownie mix. It will foam up a lot. I stopped to stir in the soda a couple of times.

When all of the Diet Coke has been stirred in and well incorporated the batter will be very liquid, but that's OK.

Pour into a 9 x 13 pan which has been lightly coated with non-stick spray (bottom of the pan only),and bake for 30-35 minutes or as directed on the box. I found though that I had to increase the baking time by about 7 minutes in order to have a toothpick inserted in the center come out clean Let them cool, cut them into 24 pieces and try not to eat the entire pan before the family gets home!

Cain's dipping sauce

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, to taste



Combine all ingredients, mix well. Add additional pepper if desired.


You can serve immediately, but it will taste better if the flavors are given the chance to "meld" in the fridge for a few hours (or days) before serving.

King Cake Bars

For the Crust:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup (2 sticks) cold butter
6 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons milk

For the Filling:

2 (8-ounce) blocks cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

For the Glaze:

1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoon milk
Colored sanding sugar or sprinkles (purple, green and gold)

For the Crust:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9- x 13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the flour and sugar. Drop in the butter cubes and beat on low speed until the mixture is crumbly and looks a bit like wet sand. Add the milk and beat until it starts to stick together. Sprinkle the mixture into the prepared baking dish and press it in to form an even layer, making sure there are no holes or gaps.

For the Filling:

Wipe out the mixer bowl and rinse and dry the paddle. Beat the filling ingredients together until completely smooth. Spread the filling evenly over the prepared crust. Bake the bars for 20 – 25 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the filling is set.

For the Glaze:

While the bars are cooking, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar and milk until completely smooth. As soon as you remove the bars from the oven, spread the glaze in an even layer across the top. Immediately decorate with sanding sugar. Leave the bars to cool completely, then slice.

Birthday Cake Popcorn Treats for school party snacks

Yield: 30 servings

3 batches of homemade popcorn, popped (each batch is 1/2 cup of unpopped kernels)
1 pound of white chocolate chips, divided in half and melted
8 heaping teaspoons of yellow cake mix (I might even have added a smidge more, but haven’t experimented with it yet), divided in half
M&Ms: I lucked out and used the Easter pastels for our batch
Assorted sprinkles

Pop popcorn and remove any kernels or burnt pieces. Working in two batches, place half the popcorn in a very large bowl.
Melt half the white chocolate in a double boiler/mixing bowl over a pot of simmering water until smooth. Stir in half of the cake mix until smooth. Pour the chocolate over half of the popped popcorn. Using a wooden spoon to start and your hands once it has cooled just enough to touch, mix the popcorn and chocolate until completely coated.

Pour out onto wax paper or into a wax-paper lined jelly roll pan and spread into a single layer. Sprinkle half the M&M candies and sprinkles until festive, then let cool and harden.

Repeat the process with the other half of the popcorn and remaining chocolate, candies, and sprinkles.Once it has all cooled and hardened, break into servings. I left several pieces nice and chunky and stuck together.

Note: Don’t add the M&Ms or sprinkles until the chocoate has cooled enough so that they won’t melt. But also don’t wait until the chocoalte is totally cool and hardened or they won’t stick. I gently pressed the candies in a bit to help them along and it worked great.

SUPER IMPORTANT EDIT NOTE: This method works best if you do the melting of the chocolate in 2 stages. Do NOT put the entire pound of chocolate into the double boiler all at once or you will likely have trouble. Melt half of it with 4 tsp of the cake mix and prep half the popcorn batch all the way through to the sprinkles & M&Ms stage. Then go back and melt the 2nd half of the chocolate mix and finish the 2nd half of the popped popcorn. If you melt it all at once it is quite possible your chocolate will seize and you won’t be able to recover it.
