Cheesy Onion Beer Bread

I usually use a substitute when it comes to using alcohol in my cooking. You can use 7-up but it makes your bread more dense. I think the yeast in the beer makes the bread better. The alcohol does cook out(you can check it out for yourself) but its just a personal preference. This bread is awesome just the way it is but if you want a little more BANG to it try adding sharp cheddar instead of just cheddar and add some jalapenos YUUUUUM!!!!

Ingredients for 1 loaf
3 cup flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
2 green onions, sliced thin
12 oz beer
1/4 cup butter, melted

In large mixing bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, cheese and green onions. Using as few strokes as possible, mix in the beer until moistened.
Pour thick batter into a greased loaf pan. Drizzle melted butter over the top.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 50 minutes. Remove and cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Enjoy


Skor Cake

This is a cake of many names .... Skor cake, candy bar cake, better than_____ cake. But who cares its all the same cake right??? Lately Poke cakes are all the rave. Growing up my mom made poke cakes all the time. We had the lemon lime poke cake, a strawberry poke cake, and the skor cake. Now there are a ton of other poke cakes and I love it!! A lot of people probably have the skor poke cake recipe but I have had a few requests for it so here it is.

Skor Poke Cake:

1 chocolate cake mix (I have used milk chocolate, German chocolate, or Devils food cake)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 caramel (split up: 3/4 to mix with milk and 1/4 to put on top)
cool whip
skor or heath candy bar (chopped)

Make cake mix as directed on box. Cool 5 min and poke holes with bottom of wooden spoon or any object desired. Mix sweetened condensed milk with caramel and pour over cake while still warm. Refrigerate over night than top with 16 oz cool whip and skor or Heath candy bar. Drizzle with remaining caramel.


S'mores Graham Krispie Treats

I love summer!! It is probably my favorite season with fall being a close second. I LOVE that my kids are home with me all day. I love the warmth of the sun. I love that its baseball season and I get to watch my boys doing what they love. I love camping and I love campfires!!! And you all know what comes with campfires...the hotdogs and SMORES!! But what do you do when you have a serious smores craving and you are going to be at baseball games or traveling??? You make these :) The lady who posted this recipe used semi sweet chocolate chips but unlike Carolyn I am all about the milk chocolate so that's what I used. I also doubled the recipe and did it in a 9x13 pan(cake pan). Then I took these to our ballgame that was on a cold and wet dreary day. I tried to imagine myself sitting by the campfire roasting a marshmallow and making a smore to stay warm lol.

1 bag (10 oz) Mini Marshmallows
1 cup Chocolate chips + 1 for topping
1 box (12 0z) Golden Grahams Cereal
6 Tbsp Butter
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
Non-Stick Cooking Spray


In a 9x9 inch baking pan, spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large non-stick pot over medium heat, melt butter. Add in marshmallows and stir together with butter until marshmallows have melted and become creamy. Stir in vanilla extract.

Fold in grahams cereal until all marshmallows and grahams are evenly mixed together. Mix in 1 cup of chocolate chips. Spread treats into sprayed baking pan. Press into pan and sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips on top of the treats, lightly press into top of treats to make sure they stick. Place into fridge for 10 minutes to cool.

Cut into bars and eat it up.
