Bunny Bait

We made bunny bait the other night for Bennett's school Easter snack.  It made so much that I was able to package some for Henry's teachers.  I found it on Pinterest via here.  This site is so great because she will even e-mail you the bunny bait tag.  I asked too late so I had to make my own.  But, I have them if you now want me to forward them to you.  

This recipe was fun and VERY EASY to make.  It just took a few ingredients and about 10 minutes.

2 cups pretzel sticks
2 cups rice chex
1 bag microwave white popcorn, popped
1 bag white melting candies
spring sprinkles
1 bag Easter m&m's

Spread the first 3 ingredients out on a lined cookie sheet.

Add the white chocolate and mix together, coating everything.  Add the sprinkles and m&m's after it is mixed.  If you add the sprinkles and m&m's and then coat...they will all be covered!

Bag up for friends or teachers!

roasted cabbage

I’ve never cooked cabbage. It’s actually been sitting in my refrigerator for longer than I would like to admit and because I don’t have the heart to throw food away, I finally prepared it. I saw this recipe on Budget Bytes and it seemed easy enough.

One head of cabbage
Italian dressing

STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Remove any wilted leaves from the outside of the cabbage. Rinse under cool water and shake as much excess water from the cabbage as possible.

STEP 2: Cut the cabbage into wedges, leaving the stem/core intact (this will hold the wedges together during roasting). Place the wedges on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Brush the dressing onto all sides of the cabbage wedges, even the bottom.

STEP 3: Let the cabbage roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes depending on the size of the wedges and your desired doneness. About half way through (15-20 minutes in), remove the cabbage and carefully turn wedges over to allow them to roast on the other side (tongs work best). The cabbage should be tender and brown and crispy on the outer edges.

Wow. This recipe turned out really well! The cabbage alone is tasty, but I shredded the cabbage and added it to my tacos. Yum.
