Spicy Cheddar Cornbread


Spicy Cheddar Cornbread Recipe - PinchMeTwice.com

I had a taste for some cornbread today, and I wanted to try out this recipe I saved. As I perused the ingredients list I saw that I had everything needed. Except for fresh jalapeños, ugh. I was not in the mood for a store run, so I decided to use some of the jalapeños I had stored in the fridge. I figured if I rinsed them off they wouldn’t be too bad right? Haha.

On top of that I forgot to add in the cayenne pepper. I tried to go back and add it in the batter after I had already put it in the oven. SMH. Thankfully, my cornbread still turned out great! Y’all this cornbread tastes so good. It’s moist and the flavors are excellent. Follow this recipe to the tee, and I’m sure yours will come out even better than mine.

What’s Poppin’? Homemade Strawberry ‘Pop Tarts’


Homemade Strawberry Pop Tarts Recipe - PinchMeTwice.com

Hey everyone! As I mentioned briefly in my previous post I recently had my wisdom teeth extracted. Slowly but surely I’m able to eat more solid foods. But mostly, I have been tortured by the yummy foods that I’m surrounded with (and forced to make) at home LOL.

I went in for my follow up at the oral surgeon today, and all is well. Lucky for me I am comfortably able to eat some bread based foods. I’ve also been drinking lots of smoothies and such. But I’m really craving some grilled chicken (next post hopefully).

Anyway I came across this recipe for Homemade Strawberry Pop Tarts, and I wanted to put my own Valentine’s Day spin on it. These are really fun to make, and you’ll be the coolest mom/wife/girlfriend in town if you make these babies. Caution these are very SWEET. If super sweet pastries are not your thing, then you may want to skip this recipe. You have been warned LOL.

A Taste of Heaven: Red Velvet Oreos


Red Velvet Oreos - PinchMeTwice.comOreo lovers the wait is over! The new Red Velvet Oreos are in stores now for a limited time (just in time for Valentine’s Day). I first heard about these cookies 2 weeks ago and I was determined to buy them. I went to a few stores today and finally found them at Walmart. I almost overlooked them because the packaging is smaller then a normal size package of Oreos. Not to mention they were almost sold out!

I grabbed 4 packs and hauled tail to the self-checkout lane, and almost elbowed a few people that were in my way (it was that serious). Last week I had my wisdom teeth removed, so I was only able to nibble on a couple cookies. They have a cream cheese center and taste really good.

How to Make Your Strawberries Taste Super Sweet For Dipping


How To Sweeten Strawberries by PinchMeTwice.com

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you’re like me then you love to indulge in decadent gourmet strawberries. A couple of years ago my husband bought a dozen or so from Shari’s Berries. If you’ve ever ordered from them, then you know how juicy and super-sweet they are.

I wanted to try making my own chocolate-covered strawberries at home, but I just could not figure out how to make them juicy like the one’s my hubby got me. I don’t know about you, but when I purchase fresh strawberries they are always a little tart. And after tasting gourmet strawberries, there is simply no going back.

I saw many tutorials for ways to sweeten your berries, but none were doing the trick.  I decided to experiment a bit, and after a couple fails I came up with this easy method. If you have a sweet tooth, 24 hours to spare, and you want to impress your Valentine, then this tutorial is for you.
