Marshmallow Toast

Since my recent Friday confessions post  on my personal blog i have had a few comments regarding... my Marshmallow Toast... so here is what you do!!

There are two ways but i am a weirdo (dont make fun) and do not like cheese unless it is 100% melted like in pizza/cheese dip/mac-n-cheese/chili.. that sort of stuff!!

The first REAL way is..

Butter bread and put a slice of American Cheese on it.... then put small white marshmallows on it and put in toaster oven until marshmallows start to brown/ or burn however you love to eat marshmallows.... then EAT IT!! It's kinda of like a grilled cheese with not other side to the toast with a little sweetness.. But again dont really love grilled cheese.. cause i weird...

and now for the BEST WAY... MY Way!

Butter your bread same as before but leave off the cheese and put your marshmallows on it and put in toaster oven ubntil marshmallows are brown/burnt enough for you and EAT IT... you WILL fall in love.. or at least i hope you love it!!

Bridget and Kat here is the answer to your question!! If either of you try it please let me know what you think!!!

I hope anyone else reading this that is curious will so try it too!! It is super good and i had some marshmallows and i ate it ALL THE TIME when i was a little girl so of course i had to make me some more.. i havent had it since i was about 16 or so..

if you have had this or like to eat this i would love to know.. there are others out there!!!

Hope you all try it.. and of course LOVE it!!

Dry Rub Roast.

Ok so this was my first time ever making ROAST... I do not love the traditional use a can of cream of __________ soup, I dont love those so much, i will eat them but never wanted to cook it.   So i GOOGLED easy crock pot roast recipes... I found this one.. (sorry i should have taken more pictures).

I am calling it Dry Rub Roast..

  Get you a good looking roast like this one above. Since i was only cooking for hubby and I i got a 3.5lb Roast.

 You will need:
Crock Pot
3-5lb Roast
1 packet of brown gravy mix
1 packet of Ranch Dressing Mix
1 Packet of Italian Dressing Mix
worcestershire sauce sacue
Carrots, potatoes, & any other veggies you wanna throw in!

Mix all brown gravy, ranch, italian dressing packets together ( i threw in some Paula Deen House seasoning)
I patted down my Roast dry on a pan.  dripped a little worcestershire sauce on in  then rubbed my seasonings on it. Rub all sides!!  Do not use all of it!!  You need some for the water in the crockpot.

 Brown all sides  in a little oil just get get some of the seasonings in and make sure it is all brown!!

Then pour water.. whatever looks good is what i did... your left over seasoning mix ( do not put all again) into your water before putting the roast in and stir then put your roast in and let it cook for about 4 hours. Then i cut up my potatoes and carrots and boiled them in water to get them tender so it would cook faster. The  mix your remaining seasoning in with the veggies and put it all in your crockpot...

The TA DA.... an Awesome rost for supper!!

It tasted awesome and i was so proud ofg myself!!

Oven Baked Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

You can use Boneless or Bone in Pork Chops Your choice, I just found these on sale!!
I always use a meat beater on my meats i cook in the oven so the spices can get in them. So that was my first step.

I also like to use foil to cook on a pan somethimes, such an easy clean up (although not in this case cause i have generiv foil that apparently manages to stick to the pan) Grease foil just a tad so the Pork Chops wont stick.

Sprinkle Lemon Pepper, Salt, Pepper, any Cajun Spice on each side of the pork chop and rub in with hand.

Cook at 400 Degrees for about 45 minutes, then broil for 5-10 minutes. Then they are ready!!


(i think the spices just look soooo GOOD)

The Finished Product:

I think the look wonderful, Sorry i should have put them on a plate before i snapped a photo!
