Chex Scotcheroo Bars

Scotcheroos are one of my favorite treats because they have chocolate AND peanut butter AND butterscotch in them and that’s a culinary perfect storm.

All day long.

They’re typically made with Rice Krispies cereal (not Chex) but I kept seeing these beautiful Chex cereal versions made into little individual servings and thought I’d give them a try.

But then I decided I was tired and hot and didn’t feel like fooling with portioning out 40 dozen perfect little individual serving-size mounds so I just dumped the lot in a pan and hoped for the best.

I’m awesome like that.

These were insanely delicious! And the Chex cereal was such an interesting spin! The corn Chex has a slightly roasted flavor which really stands up well to the sweet chocolate and butterscotch! These cut like a dream and were easy to pop out of the pan.

Tuna Noodle Salad

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m old enough that when I was in college, people actually ate in the school cafeteria. We didn’t have credit cards for luxuries like Pizza Hut and McDonalds. Or cable. And Starbucks was just something from The Real World: Seattle.

Actually, now that I think about it, college back then was a lot like going to a sleep-away camp. You moved in with strangers and shared a bathroom with them. You were provided a desk, a dresser and a bed (not a kitchen, a living room or a laundry room). And you all ate crappy food together in the cafeteria.

Anyway, whenever you or your roommate(s) went home for the weekend or a holiday you always brought back food from home and tried to make it stretch as long as you could. One of my favorite things that Shelly (my roomy and BFF) would bring back from home was a GIGANTIC tupperware container of tuna noodle salad.

I know. I know it doesn’t sound like anything spectacular but y’all, to this day, it’s one of my favorite things to keep around for a hearty snack or quick meal.

Sometimes I make it with chicken. Sometimes I add chopped boiled eggs. Sometimes I add diced celery or relish. You can make it anyway you prefer! This is just a good base recipe to help you get started!

Tuna Noodle Salad! A basic, hearty recipe that can also be made with chicken! LOVE to take this to the beach, on picnics or just keep in the fridge for quick meals or hearty snacks.

Cherry Cheese Danish Bars

Y’all. I did NOT see this coming.

I’m a baseball mom.

A big, loud, green-and-gold-wearing, sweaty, cooler-toting, baseball-pants-scrubbing, whooping, hollering baseball mama.

And I got it bad.

Brutus made the all-star team so we’ve been practicing practically every day and have already played two tournaments (won them both thankyouverymuch and now we’re headed to State – holla!)

We are living, eating and breathing baseball right now. My laundry is piled up, the house is a wreck, I haven’t cooked a good supper in weeks and I might be growing the cure for cancer in my master shower.

I haven’t made y’all anything in weeks! So guess what Mama did? She made these and called me to come take pictures and get the recipe for the blog. I mean seriously, is that awesome or what?!

She’s got it bad too, though. Some grandparents skip games or only show up to make an appearance. My folks are big, loud, green-and-gold-wearing, sweaty, cooler-toting, whooping, hollering baseball grandparents. And they love it!

Cherry Cheese Danish Bars! Tender butter crumb bars with cherries and cream cheese in the middle. SO GOOD!
