Hamburger Chip Dip

So its almost time for the Superbowl again, and even though I’m not much of a football fan I enjoy the party and the of course all the snacks 🙂  Tammy from Missionary Trek was wanting to have a good superbowl recipe to share on her blog so I came up with ‘Hamburger Chip Dip’. When I think of parties there has to be some kind of chips and dip involved 🙂 This one is simple to make and I came up with the recipe by myself, so if you don’t have something it calls for, just substitute 🙂 But don’t blame me if its not good then!

With schools starting everywhere again I thought this would be a great time to share this simple and delicious Oyster Cracker Snack recipe with you. Its the perfect snack to put in the lunch box, have as an after school snack, or since football season is once again here, its perfect for that football party too 🙂 The best part about it is you can be eating it as soon as its mixed, or if you have the patience, its better about 2 hours after mixing so its had some time to dry.

I have so many different Bread recipes pinned lately and it seems like I just don’t get to try them all, sigh. Having too much bread isn’t very healthy they tell me but surely if I make it instead of buy it it is ‘more’ healthy! 🙂

Here is a recipe for some amazing Butterhorns that I have made a few times and they are so good!

food (2)


  • 1 cups milk, scalded
  • 1 package yeast -dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  1. Soften the active dry yeast in warm water.
  2. Combine hot milk, butter, sugar and salt: cool to lukewarm. (Very important to cool or it will kill the yeast if its too hot!)
  3. Add 1/2 cup of the flour.
  4. Add yeast mixture and eggs. Beat well.
  5. Stir in remaining flour or enough to make a very soft dough.
  6. Turn out on lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 5 to 8 minutes.
  7. Place dough in bowl and let rise until double – about 1-2 hours (but will vary based on home temp).
  8. Divide into 3 equal parts. Roll each part on lightly floured board to a 9 inch circle.
  9. Brush with melted butter.
  10. Cut each circle into 12 wedges (like a pizza): roll each wedge, starting with wide end and rolling to point
  11. Arrange rolls, poin down, on greased cookie sheet: brush with melted butter.
  12. Cover and let rise till very light (about 45 minutes).

    Bake in hot oven (400 degrees) 10-12 minutes.

  13. Makes three dozen rolls.

Homemade Biscuits

These days I’m all about saving money and eating healthier, and it seems like I am constantly reading articles on how many unhealthy things are in these processed foods that we buy so I was definitely up to trying this recipe for homemade biscuits and I was quite pleased with how they turned out! They are simple to make and can be frozen until you need them. Win, win all around 🙂

So here’s the recipe:

Homemade Biscuits Recipe

  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1¾ to 2 cup milk

Add all the dry ingredient together in a bowl or food processor and mix together. Add the butter and use the metal blade on the food processor until the mixture is crumbly or mix by hand, with a fork or with a pastry cutter until the butter is fully incorporated in little pieces.

Next add just enough milk to bring the mixture together. Stir by hand or pulse in the food processor. Once it forms a ball it’s done, don’t over mix.

Flour your hands, rolling pin and counter and drop the dough on the counter, with your hands bring it together to form a ball and knead once or twice if you need to bring the dough together more.

Roll from the center out until the dough is your desired thickness. Generally about ½ inch thick is good. And use a small, 2 inch cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits. Give the cookie cutter a gentle twist against the counter to help it cut through the dough.

Place the biscuits on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet to flash freeze or a greased cookie sheet to bake.

Gather extra dough and re-roll it to the same thickness as before then cut more biscuits. Repeat until you use all the dough.

Bake at 450 for 8-12 minutes until golden brown and flaky.

How To Freeze
Freeze on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet for an hour or two, just until the biscuits are solid then place in a freezer quality plastic bag. Label, date and add to your freezer inventory sheet. Use within 6 months.

Ranch/Cheddar Cheese Pretzels








Simply mix

3 T Cheddar Cheese Powder

Pour over a pound of pretzels and let stand till they are dried. Mix every so often to keep the mixture over the pretzels.  They are soo delicious! I make them often and they never last long and we don’t get tired of them!
