My goal is to use this forum to share encouragement and inspiration for healthier eating through garden harvest and cooking from scratch more non-processed foods and for treating your family, friends, neighbors, strangers, animals and the earth with kindness.
Kindness is essential in our daily lives.
I will share weekly a new post with a message of how powerful kindness really can be.

Rice Krispies Treats Recipe
Let's give Rice Krispies Treats the credit they deserve. Simple, quick, delicious and addictive - what more could a 'sweet tooth' want. Using easy recipes gives comfort to making homemade treats. This one-pan recipe is a no-mess quick-clean creation that satisfies the taste buds of every age group (my 3 year old granddaughter and my 93 year old dad will both attest to this.) The most inexperienced cook can produce a superior batch on first attempt. File this recipe under simple, quick and delicious desserts. Train your mind to go to this recipe box before you waste your time and money making a trip to the supermarket or bakery. This is worthwhile attempt at becoming more self-sufficient.
6 cups of Rice Krispies cereal
4 cups miniature marshmallows (or 40 large)
3 tablespoons margarine or butter
Melt the margarine or butter in a large saucepan over low heat.
Stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
Mix in the the Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well coated.
This will be a very thick mixture.
Coat a 13x9x2 inch pan with cooking spray.
Spread the mixture evenly into the pan using a piece of
wax paper or your hands.
(coating either one with a small amount of butter helps)
When cool, cut into any size/shape you desire.
If you're feeling generous, double the batch and share
with family, friends, neighbors or office mates who I'm sure will appreciate the offering. : )
I hope that this idea for referencing simple, quick and delicious desserts in a recipe box helps you to live simply.
