Instant Pot Asiago Shrimp Risotto

When we first posted this recipe Instant Pots were called Electric Pressure Cookers. Who knew that three years later, Instant Pots would be a sensation? And Asiago Shrimp Risotto would be our #1 recipe! Instant Pot Asiago Shrimp Risotto is a repost of that recipe with much better pictures!Instant Pot Asiago Shrimp Risotto

 

It’s hard to believe that we have been blogging for almost five years. Rewarding, fun, challenging, are just a few of the words I would use to describe this journey. Even with all the trials and tribulations, it has been a fantastic journey. Continue reading “Instant Pot Asiago Shrimp Risotto”

Halloween Mummy Cookie Balls

Halloween is next week, and everyone needs to make a special treat to celebrate “All Hallows’ Eve.” Halloween Mummy Cookie Balls are a super quick and easy treat for all your little monsters.

Mummy Cookie Balls

The folks at Baker’s have these new cookie ball kits that are the bomb!! Cookie Ball Kits by BAKER’S Premium Chocolate create deliciously indulgent cookie balls in just 10 minutes without ever turning your oven on!

Mummy Cookie Balls

 

Each kit includes pre-measured cookie crumbs, sprinkles and a bar of BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate. There are several to chose from, and each has a unique taste and style. I have made two of the flavors and both are terrific!

 

 

Simply add cream cheese to cookie crumbs, roll into bite-sized balls, dip in melted chocolate. Each kit also comes with sprinkles, but I saved those for another day.

I chose the white chocolate kit because……well Mummys are white. I did need to have extra melted white chocolate for the drizzle as the kit has just enough to coat the cookie balls. Plus of course googly eyes, no Mummy is complete without them!

Mummy Cookie Balls

Mummy’s are easy to decorate since there is no rhyme or reason to their raggedy outfits.

Make the cookie balls according to the package directions. Melt extra white chocolate to make the Mummy rags.  No fancy equipment is needed, just a plastic bag with a corner snipped off.

Drizzle the coated cookie balls with the melted chocolate and place the googly eyes on top and you have Halloween Mummy Cookie Balls!Mummy Cookie Balls

Quick, easy and super cute!! Happy Halloween!

Instant Pot Dijon Pulled Chicken

Instant Pots have been a God send to anyone with more things to do than time to do them. I don’t use mine as often as often as I’d like to, but writing a food blog gives me lots of leftovers. Cooking so much, and I must admit I do marathon cooking sessions, making 3 or 4 recipes in a day, we tend to eat pizza and popcorn ……..a lot!!! Continue reading “Instant Pot Dijon Pulled Chicken”
