Fried Ice Cream is ridiculous goodness

I’ve been so busy as a realtor, I haven’t had enough time to test my favorite Pinterest recipes. But last week I had to get back to the kitchen and tested this Fried Ice Cream recipe. I made it to take to our local Ronald McDonald house for dessert. That’s when I found out I had a hit on my hands!!!! The only cooking involved is caramelizing the crushed corn flakes. For the frozen part, thaw your vanilla ice cream so it is workable, mix in the whipped topping to make it creamy, add the secret cinnamon ingredient build the delectable dessert.
The recipe is easy to double if you have a big crowd. This might just be a substitute to birthday cakes in our house!!!

Stretch a pound of hamburger into Mexican Pizza

Feeding my always hungry son can be a challenge. This recipe was easy to put together I made 5 pizzas and I even ended up with leftovers! One skillet and a cookie sheet is all I needed to get dinner on the table.
The recipe called for Trader Joe brand ingredients but I chose to use the Aldi comparable that were in my pantry. I also used a full pound of hamburger instead of the half pound the recipe called for. One other substitution was my cookie sheet to bake three pizzas at one time instead of a pie tin for each one.
I was totally out of fresh tomatoes and green opinion, so my pizzas had to survive with only black olives and some sour cream for garnish.
Tips was simple and effective. Give it a try
