Hello, I'm Still Here...

Hey guys! Wow it's been a while since I've been on here. Don't worry, I'm still alive... Barely. Just kidding. So I'll share the reason I've been MIA lately... drumroll... I'm pregnant! With TWINS. Yes, true story. My life has consisted on laying on my couch semi comatose while my child runs wild around my house. At any rate I've been avoiding my kitchen like the plague. I don't even know if I remember how to turn on my oven. My poor girl has been living on cereal and pb and j the last 2 months... and I have no idea what my husband has been eating. My point is that's why the rice krispies have been on a hiatus, and probably will be for a few more weeks.

But because I don't want to leave you high and dry for too long here's a link to a new page on 5MinutesForMom Totally dedicated to rice Krispy treats - woo hoo! Ok so go enjoy yourselves over there. Meanwhile I'm about to indulge in another package of saltines and H2o... Yummy...

Peanut Butter and Jelly Rice Krispy Treats

So my daughter and I went to the San Diego Zoo last week with a friend. Needless to say, my child didn't quite grasp the concept that we were there to see all sorts of crazy, wild animals....

Berry Cobbler Rice Krispy Treats

Mallow and Co: Berry Cobbler Rice Krispy Treats

Um, so I'm pretty sure my husband and I have a distorted view of healthy eating.  Here's a recent conversation we had (as in last night):

Me: "Hey, I'm headed to the grocery store - anything specific you want or need?"
Husband: "Double Stuffed Oreos!"
Me: "No way, those aren't even slightly healthy!"
Husband: "Ok... how about just regular Oreos then?"
Me: "... Really?"

Basic Rice Krispy Treats

Mallow and Co: Basic Rice Krispy Treats

Um, so in the last few weeks I have had several people ask me where my basic rice kripsy treat recipe is. Just a good plain, old fashioned rice krispy cereal and marshmallows. They've looked through my site and haven't been able to find it anywhere. Well people that's because I am an ultimate fail. My cooking blog, dedicated to rice krispy treats, does not have a basic rice krispy treat recipe! How embarrassing...

A Day in the Life of Summer....

Hey everyone! I'm actually on vacation this week no no delicious rice krispy treat post today. I'm know you're all heartbroken ;) Instead I decided to do a photo post.

So I've seen a lot of bloggers doing a photo journal "day in their lives" kind of thing lately. Where they take a picture every hour during a normal day in their life. So I decided it'd be fun to do too. Because I'm all about jumping on bandwagons. Following the crowd. You know. So here was a typical Wednesday of this last week, a day in the life of Summer. Get excited guys, this is the stuff Oscars are made of. Ahem.

Wednesday June 26, 2013

6:00 AM | After 15 minutes of squawking I'm resigned to the fact that my child is awake. We spend our first hour drinking our milky and cuddling in Mom and Dad's bed. (aka: my child playing steamroller, horsey, more steamroller, etc while Mom and Dad pretend they're still asleep)

Goodbye Google Reader... sniff sniff

Wow does everyone realize that Google Reader is going away in like 3 days? Jeez, it's a harsh world out there guys. Here's just a token reminder for everyone to switch over to another feed reader so we don't lose each other! Sniff sniff.
Because I have mastered the art of procrastinating, I just switched all mine over today. I'm now a proud user of Bloglovin! I actually love it! I'm not sure if it's because of the very easy, user friendly set up... or because I really like the color blue of their logo... it's quite the debate. But either way I think you should try it out! Here's their How-To to make it really easy!

I know there are other options too... like Feedly or Digg.... although none of those have the pretty blue logo so I don't feel comfortable recommending personally. (jk, I'm sure they're great)

Anyhoo, click on the link below to start following me on Bloglovin' now! Happy Friday!!!!

Root Beer Float Rice Krispy Treats

There are some things in life that should always make the "Nothing Feels Better Than ____" list. For example, I can pretty much guarantee every time I take off a pair of high heels I will loudly proclaim, "NOTHING feels better than taking off a pair of heels!"

Graham Rice Krispy Treats

So once upon a time I went to college at a school called BYU. Many moons ago. Like any good university, BYU had an on site school creamery. A place I can say I spent many a night downing my fair share of ice cream concoctions. Now I'm totally in love with trying new flavors, I really don't like having the same thing twice, but there was one flavor I could always count on in my ice cream creations: Graham Canyon.

Single Serving Rice Krispy Treats

There are times in life when it's ok to eat a whole pan of rice krispy treats by yourself. There just are, it's a fact. But then there are times when maybe you don't need a whole pan to yourself... maybe just half a pan, jk.

Peanut Butter Banana Rice Krispy Treats

Can we talk about selective hearing today? My husband has lately mastered, mastered the art of selective hearing. He informs me that he's so good at focusing on one thing he has a hard time noticing anything else. Riiiiight...

Rice Krispy Treat Troubleshooting

Ok, today is a no recipe post! Mostly because I'm too lazy to edit pictures,... ahem... but also because I need to address several questions I repeatedly get.

So, sometimes in life things don't turn out just as we hoped. My Tax Refund. The Bachelor Finale. The NCAA Bracket. My Car's Smog Check.... just to name a few. And sometimes, dare I say it, my cooking falls into this category as well. And it stinks. Especially when you put a lot of work into making something and then it comes out wrong. And the only thing that is worse is having no idea what went wrong.

So here are some of the top issues I've heard of/seen/had happen to me in regards to rice krispy treats:

Milky Way Rice Krispy Treats

Some days it just seems like everything goes wrong doesn't it? Anyone else have one of those days recently? Let me give a sampling of what today went like for me:

Mojito Rice Krispy Treats

So I've had this bag of lime marshmallows sitting in my cupboard. It'd been there for a while and was bugging me because I needed to use them before they got too dried out. I had another bag I used for my Key Lime Pie Rice Krispies (which were delicious, btw) but I didn't know what else I could do with the other bag?....

S'mores Rice Krispy Treats

So I saw this bumper sticker on the back of a mini van the other day that made me kind of laugh. I'm sure you've all seen it before, it's the one that says "Baby on Board!" in a yellow diamond... Does anyone else think it's ironic to have one of those on a mini van? Doesn't the fact that you are driving around in a mini van scream "I have children! Stay clear!"

Creamsicle Rice Krispy Treats

I have come to the conclusion that the more I cook, the less I measure. Now I am not sure if this is an ego thing—like now I think I know what I’m doing so why would I measure? Or maybe I’ve just realized it’s a whole lot easier using shortcuts. All I know is my measuring and precision skills have gotten progressively worse throughout the years.

Rocky Road Rice Krispy Treats

Ok, wow, can I just say it's good to be back. I'm sure none of you've noticed, but I've been MIA the past 2 weeks. What happened? Let's just sum it up with me having No Internet. Zip. We switched up our internet provider and somehow there was a 10 day gap between our services. I don't know how it happened. It felt like I was living in the Dark Ages. I was reading by candlelight, cooking dinner over an open fire, pumping water from a well... ok I'm exaggerating but I'm pretty sure the experience compares to an apocalypse.

So moving on. Happy Mother's Day!!! Don't some foods just invoke memories of certain people? For example, Rocky Road ice cream will always make me think of my mom.

Protein Bar Rice Krispy Treats

As I'm sure many of you can tell, I am a very health conscientious person. Ahem. Maybe not. I try though. Despite how it might seem, I do try. And I know that many of you out there are much better than me. So today I decided to step things up a bit. I pulled out the ginormous container of protein powder I bought on a health fluke one day and decided to put it to use. In a rice krispy treat. Because we all know a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. Or the protein powder. Anyhoo...

Toasted Marshmallow Rice Krispy Treats

Toasted Marshmallows, in my list of favorite foods they are second only to ice cream. Maybe peanut butter too... it's a tie... they'd be partners in a 3-legged race. Anyways, so I love toasted marshmallows. So WHY In The World have I never put Toasted marshmallows in a rice krispy treat?!? I Know.

Today's post focuses on my favorite things about rice krispies. These little gems, if you're not a fan already you will be after today's post. Now I'm going to skip over the obvious facts that they are delicious morsels of goodness derived from sugar and butter... what's not to love? But let's dig a little deeper:

Strawberry Daiquiri Rice Krispy Treats

Before I get into this post, I feel it's important to note that these treats do not contain alcohol. As matter of fact, I don't even drink in the first place... so I'm really not going to be of any help for you party people. Ok, I just thought I'd better put that up front so nobody's disappointed :)

Butter Pecan Rice Krispy Treats

Now first I must say these are not the most beautiful treats I've ever made. I guess you can't tell by the pictures, but they have a funny brownish tinge from the pecan butter. But you know, some things you just can't judge by appearance: Susan Boyle... McDonald's dollar menu... My high school yearbook photo. Ahem. Yes, you definitely can't judge a book by it's cover. These treats are good. Period.

Coconut Rice Krispy Treats

Hello Everybody! I'm guest posting today over at Or So She Says - one of my favorite blogs! Hop on over and check out these Coconut Rice Krispy Treats! They're awesome! (did I use enough exclamation points?)

Coconut Rice Krispy Treats

**I've added the recipe since there seemed to be link issues - but still go visit Or So She Says - it's an awesome blog!

Coconut Rice Krispy Treats
Notes: If you want to go really crazy coconutty you could use coconut oil in place of the butter for these. Only if you’re crazy though. You sane people just stick to the butter :)

4 Tbsp butter
6 cups marshmallows 
1 1/2 tsp coconut extract
1 1/2 cups toasted coconut (I toasted mine for a few minutes on the stove top on medium heat)
5 cups rice krispies

Pour the rice krispies and toasted coconut in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Once melted add in the marshmallows. Stir until they are mostly all melted (this will take a few minutes–low and slow is key for perfect texture) then stir in the coconut extract. 

Once fully melted, take them off heat and pour over the rice krispies. Stir lightly to combine, then dump into a greased 9×9 pan. Allow to cool 5 minutes, then press lightly into pan with greased hands. Allow to fully set (about 20-30 min) and enjoy!

Tagalongs Rice Krispy Treats

I am slightly disgruntled right now. It just so happens that I spent an afternoon whipping up and photographing 2 new rice krispy treats, only to put my memory card in my computer later that evening to find 0 pictures. None. I don't know what happened. It's like I never even took them! Was I dreaming? I could see crumbs on my photo shoot area so I knew I actually did take the pictures. And I couldn't even go back and retake them because all the rice krispy treats had already been eaten. Lame.

Fun Friday #6: Cleaning

So today's Friday favs are based on something I hold near and dear to my heart: cleaning (cough cough) Ok Maybe not. But it is something that seems to consume a large part of my life. And therefore I have some favorites when it comes to it. They are the following:

Lemon Poppy Seed Rice Krispy Treats

So I was talking to a friend and mentioned how my little girl and I went to the beach the other day. Her response was an immediate gush of how lucky I was and how fun it must be to be a stay home mom. I just smiled and agreed that it was great, but in the back of my mine I had this urge to crush her dreams about what being a stay home mom really was. What actually happens when I "go to the beach" with my child. Here's some of the scenarios I'd like to paint for her:
