August’s Tasty Treats

August flew by in a hurry, and I was in the kitchen either washing dishes or making another meal. The kids all had a growing spell, and holy moly I couldn’t keep them full. I have lots of pictures to share, and I still have a lot of dishes to wash.

Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce is a quick and easy treat. We had just a little vanilla ice cream left, and the kids loved the Summer treat.

The breadmaker was busy too. Thade loves these Butter Rolls, I need to start making them in double batches.

James requested another RR Cherry Pie, it was delicious.

The kids aren’t a fan of fruit pies, so I made them a little Chocolate Snack cake.

Did I mention that RR Cherry Pie also makes for an awesome breakfast.

I picked up some more cherries today, so I can make another pie later this week.

I made a big batch of Pepperoni Pizza Rolls, they vanished in a flash. I’m going to have to start tripling this recipe to freeze for school lunches.

I’ve got the BBQ Wings recipe down, just in time for football season.

On August 24th, Miss Agnes declared that it was her favorite toy’s 44th birthday. We made him a Chocolate Bundt cake from scratch to celebrate. I’m pretty sure cheetah’s love chocolate cake.

I hadn’t made homemade pizza in such a long time. The kids have been on a pizza kick for a long time, so I thought it was time to make this recipe again.

I like mine with veggies. The kids prefer cheese or pepperoni.

I doubled the recipe, and made three large pizzas. I think next time, I’m going to have to quadruple it. The boys finished an entire large pizza between the two of them. I had just a few pieces to add to the freezer for quick school lunches.

Over Labor Day weekend everyone was home, and I decided that we were going to avoid the grocery store. We cleaned out the pantry, fridge, and freezer. I restocked this morning. I baked lots and lots of homemade goodies. I made a batch of Apple Cinnamon Muffins.

I also made a batch of Chocolate Chip Muffins.

The kids didn’t like the Apple Cinnamon ones, but the Chocolate Chip muffins disappeared in a hurry. I think I’ll make these again, and send them along for lunch-box treats. I’ll double the recipe though, twelve muffins just wasn’t enough for leftovers.

I’ve already made Chocolate Chip Cookies this month, and I’m hopefully making a double batch of Chex Mix later today. We’ve got the house stocked back up, so I had better get back to the kitchen.
