How to make Cheesecake in a Jar

Cheesecake in a jar is such a cute idea for a fun dessert.



I love that you can make cheesecake in a jar in advance and have it ready to serve, in portions, when ready,

Making Cheesecake in a Jar is easier to make than you may expect it to be.

This is a no-bake recipe that also has no eggs in it. Even better, you can sneak in some fruit!



This recipe can be made in healthier version.
You will notice that substitutions will be suggested.
I personally like to sub in food items when I bake to save a bit on the calories etc.
However, this can also mean that taste may suffer as a result.

We will be making a quickie kind of a crust for this cheesecake in a jar recipe.
The crust is such an easy cheat. All you really need is some melted butter and some cookies. You can even use graham crackers. I would even try using butter alternatives. You can even skip the crust if you want to.

What you will definitely need are jars or small glasses to make this in.
Jars are cute and they make for a nice presentation. You can even use them as a party favor for people to take home and enjoy. A basic mason jar would work for this. You can find a decent selection of mason jars on Amazon-4 ounce and other sizes -even with wide-mouths.

Flourless peanut butter, oatmeal and chocolate chips cookies,

I always wondered what a cookie recipe without flour would taste like.
Since I can rarely go wrong with peanut butter, chocolate chips, and oatmeal in a cookie recipe, I am all over trying this cookie out.

No Flour Added, Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Cookies

No Flour Added, Chocolate Chip Peanut butter and Oatmeal Cookies

I am hesitant to call this a "gluten-free" recipe because, from what I hear, oatmeal is a controversial ingredient in a "gluten-free" diet. Some folks say that oatmeal is "gluten-free" and other folks say that oatmeal is not "gluten-free".
I am not on a "gluten-free" diet and I am not an expert on a "gluten-free" diet. So, I will call this a "flourless" No Flour Added, Chocolate Chip Peanut butter and Oatmeal Cookies recipe.
Most cookie recipes have some kind of flour in the ingredient listing.

Flour is that grain that acts more or less like the base of the recipe. By saying "base" I mean that in a normal cookie recipe, we seem to start with the flour and then add everything else to it. Flour is usually the biggest part of the cookie batter in relation to the other ingredients. It is the flour that seems to help all of the other ingredients relate to one another.

So, what happens when we remove the flour from the recipe?
It would seem that we would need something to act as the 'base' in a cookie recipe. We need something to be what we add the other ingredients to and that can act as what relates the other ingredients to one another. So, I am using oatmeal.

I am a fan of oatmeal.
I add oatmeal to my Greek Yogurt as one of my most favorite breakfast meals. As someone who owns a breakfast-based restaurant, I can tell you that we sell plenty of oatmeal to our patrons. Oatmeal is relatively cheap and it is pretty filling in the belly.

5 Ingredient Meatless Shepherd's Pie

I remember my mother in law working hard in the kitchen trying to create a Shepherd's Pie from scratch.
I also remember the day when she found someone else to make an authentic Shepherd's Pie for not a lot of money.

5 Ingredient Meatless Shepherd's Pie


5 Ingredient Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie

Technically, an authentic Shepard's Pie consists of left-over food and a lot of potatoes.
The potatoes serve as both the crust and the topping. The left-over food in-between these layers of potatoes is primarily minced meat (beef,lamb) and some vegetables. Shepherd's Pie was meant to be a hearty meal for the
Shepherds' in the English and Irish fields.

These days, we see many versions of the Shepherd's Pie.
I have seen Shepherd's Pie prepared with an actual bread crust. I have seen in prepared with chicken- which can often resemble a pot pie in many ways.

Shepherd's Pie is a very hearty meal when prepared as intended.
This makes sense as Shepherd's Pie was created to fill a belly using the ingredients that were readily on hand. Potatoes were what was most readily on hand and potatoes can fill a belly- and make that belly feel full for a long time.

I am like a lot of people out there who seem to have cut back on meat consumption.

I am always looking for ways to add vegetables to the food that I prepare. And, I like simplicity when I can have it.
Obviously, this is not a true Shepard's Pie as it does not contain lamb. But, this is a nice version for those of us who enjoy our veggies.

That is why I like 5 Ingredient Meatless Shepherd's Pie

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day!

One Skillet Chili Mac

I am all for an easy clean up no matter what I am doing.

That is especially true when it comes to cleaning up a kitchen meal mess.

No Sweat One Skillet Chili Mac


One Skillet Chili Mac and Cheese

Using one skillet to make an entire meal makes life so much easier if you ask me.



Many people believe that in order to make anything with pasta in it you must first cook the pasta.
By 'cook the pasta' I mean boil the water, add the paste to the water, wait 10 minutes, drain the pasta and prepare it.
We have all been there before I am sure. The good thing about one skillet recipes like this one is that there is a cheat for that water boiling idea that still results in a good tasting meal.


We love making pasta the traditional way using the boiling water.
That is especially true when we all want our pasta served differently or simply want buttered noodles. These really are tasty options when it comes to eating pasta. I just sometimes need to create a crowd pleasing one skillet meal that is both tasty and filling.

One skillet, or even one pot, meals really can make life a lot easier.
It is not just about the clean-up of the meal prep mess. It is just easier to serve when all of the ingredients are in one spot. I also like that everyone can get a bit of everything rather than one person enjoying all of the pasta alone or all of the sauce alone.

When I make a one skillet pasta meal, I like to pair it with a light side with vegetables.
That light side will usually be salad. Salad adds the perfect light balance to something that may feel heavy in the stomach such as pasta.




The Recipe for One Skillet Chili Mac


You can use turkey or beef to make this recipe.
Just be sure to cook what ever you choose fully before moving on with the bulk of the recipe.
