Chocolate Cherry Blondies

We love fresh cherries.   The guys will eat them by the handfuls, after I pit them, of course.   But both claim not to like cooked cherries in anything.    Nasty hot here today, so I went looking for a recipe that was easy to put together, and looked worth running the oven for.    These blondies from Sassy Southern Mommy had great potential.

A few minor changes-  I was short on the chocolate chips, so I upped the amount of cherries.   My cherries were huge, so I halved them when I pitted them, then cut each half again before putting them in the measuring cup.   I ended up using about 1 1/4c of quartered cherries.    The directions mention vanilla, but doesn't give a quantity, I used 1 teaspoon.   I also added a pinch of kosher salt with my flour.

The guys have gone to the movies, and I'm sitting here alone in the house with the blondies, and I'm finding myself hoping that they really don't like them so that I can have them all to myself.   Chocolate and cherry are one of my favorite flavor combinations.  Thanks so much to Jessica for her wonderful recipe!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Lemon Pizzelles

  One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
