Trick or Treat? Jell-o Pudding Cups and Caramel Chocolate Pretzel Sticks

*This post was supposed to go up last October but due to my father’s passing I didn’t have the opportunity to post this. I will be making these cups and sticks again. They are delicious!

Hello my friends! I made Jell-o Pudding Cups and Caramel Chocolate Pretzel Sticks and they are a hit at our home. These are perfect for Movie night with the family. Super Easy to make and delicious!

I used orange and lemon jell-o, I also used Vanilla pudding. I made the orange first and let it set in the fridge, followed by the yellow then let it set in the fridge and topped it with vanilla pudding and halloween sprinkles! So delicious and easy to make. My girls love these! These look like candy corn in a cup. Really festive and I hope you try them out. 🎃

I bought pretzel sticks and caramel candies from the Bulk Barn and I also used my favourite chocolate, Lindt of course! I melted the caramel in the microwave and dipped the pretzel sticks in the caramel. I then let them cool in the fridge on parchment paper for a minute or two. I then melted the chocolate and dipped them again in the chocolate. I placed them in the fridge on parchment paper for a minute or two. These are so good! You should totally try making these.

Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻

Best Day To Cook: Easy Everyday Lighter Dinners At Home Part 2

Hello my lovely friends! I hope you are all well. I’ve been enjoying trying more recipes from my cook book collection and last week I made three recipes from the book* “Woman’s Day Easy Everyday Lighter Dinners” by Kate Merker and editors of Woman’s Day. I believe I won this book in the past. I find the recipes really easy and simple. Not complicated at all and the flavours are simple and delicious. Very easy to follow the recipes. The pictures are big and beautiful and the directions in the cook book are easy to follow.

The first recipe that I tried is absolutely delicious! “Pineapple and ham fried rice” on page 103.

Next recipe I tried is a “Sweet and spicy chicken stir fry” on page 40. My family loved this recipe as well. The snow peas were kindly given to me by my lovely neighbour. The snow peas were so delicious! Home grown veggies taste so good. I’m so grateful. They even gave me green beans. I grew some hot peppers and tomatoes and I offered them some as well. Next year I would like to plant some green beans, carrots and snow peas in my garden.

The third recipe I tried is the “Pork Chops with apricot rice”on page 23. Next time I will use bone-in pork chops instead. I like bone-in because I feel it has more flavour.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I really love this recipe book and I’m going to continue to make more recipes from this lovely cook book. It is very simple to use. The ingredients are light and healthy. Easy to follow and it has beautiful pictures that are bright and colourful. The cook book also includes calories, fat, sodium, carbs, fiber and cholesterol count. It also has Cooking tips. It is categorized by Main Courses, Sides and Desserts. I give this book a 5/5 stars. Fantastic!
