Tried it Tuesday: 3 Fun Recipes!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I am linking up with Lakeshore Runner for Tried it Tuesday!

This past week/weekend I tried out 3 fun recipes that I found while browsing blogs, instagram, etc. I am always finding awesome recipes online and I was so excited that I could try them all out!

First recipe: Honey, Almond, Coconut Granola from PeanutButterRunner.

I had never made my own granola before and now that I have, this won’t be my last time. It was SO easy, so delicious and I love knowing all the ingredients that are in my food.

I mixed all the ingredients together:

Let it cool, then broke it apart and stored in air tight glass containers:

So delicious!

Second Recipe: Roasted Grape and Ricotta Toast from PB Fingers:

I had a BBQ to go to on Saturday and I knew this was the perfect recipe to make!

At home I sliced a baguette, sprayed the pieces with olive oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper and stuck them in the oven for 5 minutes at 425.

Then I let them cool, then stuck them in an airtight container to bring to the BBQ.

When I got to the BBQ I roasted the grapes (that I sliced in half before I came) for about half an hour in her oven that she let me use. πŸ™‚ I shook them with olive oil and salt before roasting them. Then once they were ready, I spread ricotta cheese on the toast, then put the grapes on the toast, then drizzled honey and sliced almonds on top. Everyone enjoyed them, including me! πŸ™‚

Third Recipe: Caramel Twix Cookies from Swanky Recipes.

OH MY GOD I NEED TO MAKE THESE AGAIN. Sorry, yes, I’m bragging. They. Are. Amazing.

I made these to also bring to the BBQ. I was bummed because half the batch burnt (I put it on the bottom rack) so there were no leftovers. But for real, I am dreaming about them. Just some modifications I made to the recipe was I used coconut sugar instead of white sugar, and since it called for a cup and a half of butter, I used two sticks of butter and for the half, I used half a cup of applesauce. Also, I melted the chocolate on it’s own by making my own double boiler, so I didn’t melt it in the microwave or with shortening. I also couldn’t find Kraft caramels, so I found these random soft caramel candies and they worked fine. I recommend sticking them in the fridge between the caramel and the chocolate layers.

That is a wrap-up of the 3 recipes I tried out this week!

Any fun new recipes you are looking forward to trying?Β
