Supernatural Inspired Recipes: Charlie’s Butterscotch Sleepover Cookies

Maybe before they started watching dvds, Charlie and Dean baked some cookies as Sam makes a take out run.

Charlie would totally dump a bunch of sprinkles into the batter when Dean’s not looking, cause who doesn’t love all that color?

Preheat oven to 350F

1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs (I prefer to use 2 “flaxseed eggs” that’s 2 tablespoons of milled flaxseed mixed with 6 tablespoons of water. Let it sit in a small bowl for a few minutes until the mixture thickens, then add it into the batter.)

1/2 cup almond milk

1 tablespoon vanilla flavoring (I don’t measure, I just pour a bit in.)

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 bag butterscotch chips

1 cup sprinkles (Dump it in when your baking partner turns his back for a moment.)

3 cups flour (I like to use whole wheat)

On a prepared baking sheet, place heaping tablespoon sized pieces of dough about an inch apart. Bake for 10 minutes at 350F. Makes about 3 dozen.

No Bake Choco Chips Cheesecake on a Jar

image

image

The talk of the town on my Facebook Cheesecake on a Jar. My friends in the Philippines goes gaga over it. It’s very rare here in Vancouver that sells that. Since I have empty Mason jars why not try making one. I love Cheesecake anyways. Let’s begin!

Ingredients:

image

  • 2 oz of crushed graham (crust)
  • 2 tablespoon of melted butter (crust)
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, optional
  • 100g cream cheese, softened 
  • Semi sweet chocolate chips for toppings
  • Mason jars and decoration

Procedures:

image

  • Crushed the graham crackers and add the melted butter. Stir well. Distribute the crushed grahams on the bottom of the jars and flatten it using a spoon or any kitchen utensils that can help. Refrigerate the crust for 20 minutes.

image

  • Whip the whipping cream until peak. Add the sugar and vanilla extract. Mix well. 
  • Add the softened cream cheese and stir until well combined and texture becomes creamy. Pour the mixture inside the jars.

image

image

  • Add the semi sweet chocolate chips on top of the mixture. Since I am a fan of chocolate more please! Cover the jars and let it freeze for an hour before serving.

image

  • For the decorations, I cut out some heart shape using red construction paper. I punch a hole on the side and put it in a ribbon. Tie the ribbon on the lid part. You can write message on it. Be creative!

image

There you have it! My very rich and creamy cheesecake with chocolate chips overload. By the way before eating it I suggest you put the bottom pf the jar on a hot water to make the crust a little bit softer. The only thing i like about making dessert on a jar it is very presentable and you can give it as gift without worrying messy icing or syrup. Just add some designs and its good to go. You can even bring it at work eat to go. I hope you enjoy my first time dessert on a jar adventure. More to explore and try! Cheers! More cheesecake and more happiness!

FOUR INGREDIENT LATE NIGHT FUDGE SAUCE:

i just got a late-night craving for hot fudge sauce but was without a lot of the traditional ingredients—heavy cream, baking chocolate—so i improvised this recipe! it’s a little runnier than traditional fudge sauce, but it tastes really similar, only has 4 ingredients and takes less than 5 mins to prepare!!!

this recipe uses very imprecise proportions but makes about enough for one huge bowl of ice cream! it’s definitely an “eat right after you make it” sort of thing, i don’t think it would keep very well. 

you need:

  • a heaping tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • three heaping tablespoons of brown sugar
  • a tablespoon of vanilla almond milk [you can use regular milk + a dash of vanilla extract too! but i love the taste and consistency of vanilla almond milk!]
  • half a tablespoon of salted butter [you could prob make this vegan by doing a pinch of salt, a splash of oil and more almond milk, but idk]

directions:

  1. add all ingredients to a small saucepan. 
  2. stir them constantly over mid-to-high heat
  3. once they begin to boil, continue stirring but progressively lower the temperature until it’s just simmering
  4. stir until the brown sugar is completely dissolved and the ingredients are fully incorporated: i let mine simmer all togetherfor about a minute and a half after i lowered the heat, stirring constantly

this is so tasty and i will definitely make this on many late nights in the future!!

For a new go to hot cereal, try quinoa for breakfast. This versatile and high protein whole grain provides a satisfying meal in the morning. The combination of coconut, maple, and strawberries makes this a creamy sweet dish.

  • 1 cup quinoa, dry
  • 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple almond butter (such as Justin’s)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut 
  • 1 tablespoon 100% pure maple syrup
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries

Place quinoa in a fine sieve or colander. Rinse well under running water, rubbing quinoa between hands for 1 minute; rinse and drain quinoa.

Place quinoa in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly for 2 minutes to toast the quinoa. Stir in almond milk and bring to a slow boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cover, stirring occasionally. Cook 15 to 20 minutes or until liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with fork.

While quinoa is warm, add almond butter, coconut, and maple syrup. Stir to combine. Stir in strawberries and serve warm.

Tips

Rubbing the quinoa before cooking is important to remove its bitter outer coating.

For a make-ahead breakfast, prepare quinoa (omitting strawberries) and store covered in a refrigerator for up to 4 days. When ready to eat, heat quinoa and top with strawberries.
