Creamy Parmesan Salmon

Do you know why Catholics eat fish on Friday during Lent? I grew up in the Catholic church and attended Catholic school until I was in 6th grade. My parents did not like fish when I was younger so we just abstained from eating meat. This is actually the “rule”. You are not supposed to eat warm-blooded flesh meat as a small sacrifice for the immeasurable sacrifice Jesus made for us. Since fish are not warm-blooded it is an acceptable meal on Fridays. Did you know that this practice actually led to the creation of McDonald’s fish filet sandwich? A drop in the sale of hamburgers on Fridays inspired the company to offer this fish sandwich! I don’t really like fish sandwiches but I do like salmon. And these Creamy Parmesan Salmon Fillets are one of my family’s favorites! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Reeses Peanut Butter Cookies

Reeses Peanut Butter Cookies

First of all, these cookies don’t actually have peanut butter cups in them.  Nevertheless the chocolate and peanut butter combination makes them taste like Reeses peanut butter cups.  Reeses Peanut Butter Cookies are also not one of my “healthy” recipes.  But they are quick and easy which makes them a great back to school recipe! In addition you could make them a little healthier by using a sugar-free or gluten-free cake mix.
The recipe come from a “Hints from Heloise” article I cut out of the newspaper years ago. Whenever I need a quick treat this is my go-to recipe!
Post a comment about which cake flavor you would use to make cookies!
Finally, enjoy!

Quick and Easy Oreo Cookie Bars

Oreo Cookie Bars

In my job as an instructional technology coach at a middle school, I give weekly staff development on Wednesday.  I also try to provide a little snack as an added incentive to attend.  I’ve made these oreo cookie bars a couple of times and several people have asked for the recipe.  It requires very few ingredients, most of which you probably have on hand. Thanks to  Averie Cooks for this recipe!
Oreo Cookie Bars

Directions:

First of all melt ½ cup of butter. Then mix with 1 cup of brown sugar. Add 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Mix well.

 Add 1 cup of flour and mix just until combined.

 Next add in  18 crushed oreos (I put mine in a large plastic bag and go over it with my rolling pin, leaving some cookies in chunks).  Batter will be thick at this point.  Smooth batter into a 9 inch square pan that has been covered in foil and sprayed with cooking spray. This makes for easy removal and super easy clean up! I got 2 of these ceramic pans on clearance for $1.85 at Joann’s a few weeks ago.  Awesome deal!

 Finally, sprinkle m & m’s over the top and gently press them into the batter.  Then bake for 20-25 minutes at 350°.

Let cool before cutting into squares.  Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pie is one of those desserts that seems perfect for the spring and summer months!  However, for a coconut lover like me, it is certainly good any time of the year! I adapted this recipe from one posted on Today’s Mama to make it more allergy friendly.   It does have almond flour in the crust but you could easily make a crust with all coconut flour.
