  • Milnot Cheesecake Cheesecake is a recipe for cheesecake lovers at Willow Bird Baking inspired by her grandmother’s favorite cheesecake recipe. This is a two-part dessert. The Milnot cheesecake is a light, fluffy, lemony no-bake cheesecake made with evaporated milk, lemon Jell-o and cream cheese. Instead of standing on its own, this no-bake cheesecake is layered on top of a baked, homemade cheesecake base that is rich, creamy and provides a very nice contrast to it. You can also find a few words – both true and touching – of wisdom from Julie’s grandmother alongside the recipe.
  • Caramel apples and caramel popcorn are two classic caramel-covered treats that are just about irresistible. The only problem is choosing which to make when a caramel craving hits. Making Raspberri CupcakesSalted Caramel Apples with Popcorn solves the problem nicely. These treats start out with apples dipped in homemade salted caramel which are then rolled in crushed popcorn. Any kind of popcorn will work as long as it is buttery and salty, to add another savory element to the treats. Serve these at your next movie night or wrap them up and take them to a party.
  • Pixie sticks are paper straws full of barely-flavored sugar that little kids just can’t seem to get enough of. I know that I was hooked when I was a kid and jumped at the opportunity to have one or three. At Shindig, you can learn how to make Homemade Pixie Sticks. These do-it-yourself snacks are healthier than the originals because they’re made with freeze dried fruit, which grinds into a pixie-like powder with more flavor and quite a bit less sugar. You can order paper straws from crafting stores and you’ll definitely be the hit of your next kid-friendly event, both with the kids and the parents, if you bring a bunch of these with you.
  • Pancakes and bacon are both great breakfast items, but they’re even better when served together. You can do this by putting them on the same plate, making bacon pancakes, or by making Cooking with Mel‘s Bacon Pancake Sticks. This breakfast item starts out with crispy pieces of bacon and some pancake batter – homemade or from a mix. Pour the pancake batter into an oblong shape on your griddle, longer than the bacon pieces, and place a piece of bacon right on top. Cook the pancake as you normally would and you end up with one delicious looking breakfast dish with two of your favorite breakfast items.

    This is another great round-up! My family would go absolutely crazy for those pancake sticks. Really, there’s nothing better than bacon and pancakes on a lazy weekend morning.
