Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

My kids love chocolate chip cookies!  Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies.   But sometimes you want to mix it up a bit and what better way than to make cookie bars.   My husband actually likes the cookie bars over cookies but everyone is different.   My boys will eat either as long as it’s chocolate chip!

I found this recipe on Pinterest and it was really easy to bake.  I think it’s a keeper 🙂

2 1/8 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
12 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips
Sea salt, for sprinkling over bars-optional

Directions: 

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the melted butter and sugars together until combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix on low, just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

4. Pour cookie dough into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with the spatula. Sprinkle cookie bars very lightly with sea salt, if desired. Bake cookie bars for 25-30 minutes or until the top of the bars are light golden brown and the edges start to pull away from the pan. Cool bars on a wire rack to room temperature. Cut bars into squares and serve.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Easy Fruit Smoothies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Easy Fruit Smoothies

I know a lot of the country is having snowy weather and cold temperatures but here in the Phoenix, AZ area, it’s heating up.  While the rest of the country has been below normal temperatures, Phoenix AZ has been breaking records on our high temperatures.   So it’s hot and the kids are hungry after school.   Monday through Thursday after school we are in the house and back out for some kind of sport practice.  Since we are strapped for time I started making these fruit smoothies and the boys (including my husband) just love them!  I just mix all the ingredients in our Vitamix and it’s done in about 2 minutes.  Plus, it’s a healthy snack before their sport practices.

Easy Fruit Smoothies:

1 cup frozen strawberries (no sugar added)

1/2 cup frozen blueberries (no sugar added) I also have used a mix berry bag of frozen fruit

1 medium banana

1/2 cup skim milk

2 oz. non-fat Greek yogurt (or regular plain yogurt)

Add all of these items to your blender and blend. If it’s too thick, add a little water.

Feel free to add protein powder if you like.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Quick and Easy Coffee Cake

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Quick and Easy Coffee Cake

When I said I was going to make coffee cake, my oldest son said he didn’t want to try it because it had coffee in it.   I could not stop laughing because he is so literal all the time.   After I stopped laughing, I said it’s called coffee cake because the cake compliments the coffee.  It’s never a dull moment in this house of boys 🙂  My oldest was still very shocked I was making this because only my husband likes coffee (still can’t choke down a cup).  I told him to just to try the cake and let me know what you think.   Well, can I say it was gone in two days!! Now a couple of pieces went to friends who came over but everyone loved the cake.  My husband even requested that I make it again soon!

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Skinny Kung Pao Chicken

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Skinny Kung Pao Chicken

Usually Skinny recipes don’t appeal to me.   It’s not that I don’t like them but I try to eat in moderation whether it’s skinny or not.   But my husband was bugging me to make a few skinny recipes.   He’s trying to lose a couple of pounds I think 🙂  I told him if he would stop snacking on pretzels and cookies at night the couple of pounds would come off.   He agreed but still wanted skinny recipes.

Since Kung Pao Chicken is one of his favorite Chinese take out meals I decided to try this recipe I found on Cookinglight.com.   I was a little worried because sometimes the skinny recipes come up a little short on favor.   This one did not.  In fact, next time I think I will add just a little extra crushed red pepper.   The recipe called for 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons and I added 1 teaspoons because the boys.  Everyone loved it!  This recipe is simple to prep before and literally only takes a 15-17 minutes to make after the preparation is done.   We all agreed this one is a keeper!

Skinny Kung Pao Chicken

Yields about 4 to 6 servings (depending on who is serving:) )

Ingredients: 

  • 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon bottled minced ginger
  • 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper (about 1 large pepper)
  • 1 cup snow peas, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts

Directions: 

  1.  Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until softened. Add garlic; sauté 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add chicken; sauté 3 minutes or until chicken begins to brown.
  2.  Combine 3/4 cup water and the next 5 ingredients (through crushed red pepper), stirring with a whisk until sugar dissolves. Add water mixture to pan; bring to a boil. Add bell pepper and snow peas to pan; cook for 2 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender and sauce thickens. Sprinkle with nuts.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Snickers Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Snickers Chocolate Chip Cookies

My youngest son just loves Snicker candy bars.   It’s a new love for him 🙂   Not that I am going to be buying Snicker candy bars a lot but when my friend gave me this recipe (and the cookies as a gift) I knew my youngest would be hooked.

So Monday when I was looking what to bake for the boy’s lunches, I thought of the recipe and decided to surprise my youngest.  He was very surprised and happy!  Normally, I bake for the boy’s lunches on Sunday but since we were in California all last week and didn’t get home until late Sunday afternoon, baking had to wait until Monday.

We went to Orange County and we did something we have never done before…whale watching.   I guess I should tell you we use to live in Orange County and our oldest son was born there.   Plus, we go there about 4 times a year.  It’s an easy drive from the Phoenix, AZ area and it’s a nice change of weather for us in the summer.  In all the years we lived in California and all the times we have visit, we have never gone whale watching.  We always talked about it but never went.  It was so worth it!  We saw all kinds of whales and dolphins.

Snickers Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe from Cooking Classy.  Yields about 30 cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 – 8 oz Snickers candy bars, chopped (about 1 1/2 – 2 cups)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped, unsalted or lightly salted peanuts (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt for 30 seconds, set aside. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, whip together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until pale and fluffy. Stir in eggs one at a time mixing until combined after each addition. Blend in vanilla. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Add in chopped Snickers, chocolate chips and peanuts and blend on low speed just until mixed in.
  • Shape dough into balls about 3 Tbsp each and place on a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet spacing at least 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven 10 – 12 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool several minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Pretzel M&M Cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Pretzel M&M Cookies

It’s almost a month after Christmas and I still have Christmas M&M’s.   I need a recipe that I could use the M&M’s up so I don’t keep eating them by the handfuls!  Enter Sally’s Baking Addiction and her fabulous Peanut Butter Pretzel M&M cookies.   If you love peanut butter, chocolate and/or pretzels then this cookie is for you.   If you have been reading my blog you know my family LOVES pretzels and peanut butter.   This was the recipe for me to bake and stop eating those M&M’s by the handfuls 🙂   My boys gave the cookies a thumbs up!

Recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction

Ingredients: 

1/2 cup salted butter, softened to room temperature ( I used 1/2 cup of unsalted butter and added 1/4 teaspoon to the flour)

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup sugar

1 large egg

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup M&M’s

3/4 cup pretzel pieces

Directions: 

In a large bowl using a hand-mixer or a stand mixer with the paddle attachment cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed.  Add the peanut butter, 1 large egg and vanilla in that exact order.  Next you need to add the flour and baking soda but make sure you do not over mix batter.

Fold in the M&M’s and pretzel pieces slowly without over mixing the batter.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.  I chilled mine for 2 hours.

Preheat oven at 350 degrees.   Use a small tablespoon and spoon the chilled dough onto the cookie sheets.  Next you want to flatten the dough a little bit.  I used a small glass bottom to lightly flatten my dough.   Bake for 8-9 minutes and your cookies will look a little undone and soft. Let the cookies cool completely on the cookie sheet.   The cookies will firm up as they cool.    Cookies stay fresh at room temperature in an airtight container for 10 days.

Makes 3 dozen small cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Skinny Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Skinny Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

Usually I am not a big fan of baked goods that are “healthier” for you.  It always seems like something is missing to me.  Well, this recipe will not disappoint at all.   I came across the recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction (I just love her blog) and the pictures made the muffins look so good I thought I would give them a taste.

I made the muffins without my family knowing they were from a skinny recipe.   As they were baking they absolutely smelled delicious!  The real taste test would be my boys and if they ate them.  Well, my boys crushed them and I mean crushed them.  I think the twelve muffins were gone within 48 hours.   After they were all gone I finally told everyone that these muffins were from a skinny recipe… they asked me to make them again soon 🙂 That’s a winner!!

Recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction

Yields a dozen muffins

Ingredients: 

  • 3/4 cup (133g) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (85g) honey
  • 2 large egg whites (or 1 large egg)
  • 3/4 cup (183g) vanilla Greek yogurt (or regular yogurt, plain or vanilla)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (62g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (64g) whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup (64g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (90g) mini chocolate chips, plus a few more for sprinkling on top

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Spray 12-count muffin pan with nonstick spray. Do not use liners.

In a large bowl, combine applesauce, sugar, honey, egg whites, greek yogurt, and vanilla extract. Whisk them all together until smooth, with no yogurt lumps remaining.

Sift* the flours, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder together. Slowly stir in the wet ingredients, being careful not to overmix. Get any dry pockets of flour out. Fold in the mini chocolate chips. The batter will be a little chunky. This is ok.

Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups – fill them all the way to the top if you can. Bake for 5 minutes at 425F. Keeping the muffins in the oven, reduce the temperature down to 375 and continue to bake for 13 more minutes. Insert a toothpick into the center of one muffin. If it comes out clean, they are done. If not, bake for only 2 more minutes.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 3 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes 12 muffins. Muffins stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. Muffins freeze well up to 3 months: heat up for 45 seconds to thaw.
