Cranberry Oatmeal Bars

I saw this recipe while flipping through my old Penzeys Spices magazine.  As you know, I am attracted to easy and healthy recipe, even though I couldn't really say this recipe is healthy but hey it has oats and dried cranberries in it!  Hahaha....  Anyway, what got me in the end is this one bowl and a hand whisk preparation method.  I don't like to see a sink full of things to wash in the end, so I always favor this type of recipe.

I liked this recipe, the cranberry oatmeal bars turned out very fragrant and delicious.  Next time I can make this for teacher treat or party.  My girls took this as their school snacks and ate it as after school snack.  Easy to make, less thing to wash and delicious to eat, what more can you ask for? *wink*

Avocado Chocholate Chips No Churn Ice-Cream

I first saw this recipe in a video shared by a friend via Facebook.  The easy recipe caught my eyes, I was like I could make ice-cream at home without an ice-cream maker?  Furthermore, it was so easy to make and the vibrant green color no-churn avocado ice-cream really tempted me to give it a try.

Hence, viola!  Frankly that vibrant green color was impossible to achieve, I am wondering whether they added green coloring for the video!  The picture provided by the Food Network recipe was the same as mine, more whitish in color instead of the vibrant green.  Only 1/2 an avocado used and we had to mix it in with 2 cups of whipped cream, that green color would be long diluted.

I added mini chocolate chips morsels as my girls and I loved chocolate, nothing would go wrong with this combination unless you dislike chocolate chips.  And my verdict for this ice-cream, it was good and creamy!

Yummy home-made no churn ice-cream!  As easy as 1-2-3!  Try it!  The only downside is lots of cleaning afterward, that was the least fun part of it.

Korean Fish Cake and Italian Sausages

I had some Italian sausage in the refrigerator and thought that Korean fish cake and Italian sausage would make a good pair, so this dish was created.  You can add some sliced jalapeno too if you prefer it spicy.   My girls only picked up the sausages and fish cakes to eat and ignored the onion and carrot, haha...  I guess you can omit the onion and carrot if you have picky eaters at home too.  This is definitely a great side dish to eat with rice!
