Broccoli Cheese Bites: The new take on eating your greens

Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables but it is hard to get excited about eating any of my greens day-to-day.  To top it off, my darling boyfriend is a vegetarian,  so we usually cook meatless foods.  When I saw this recipe from Stacey Snacks, I knew I found a gold-mine.  Cheese? Broccoli? Count me in!

These Broccoli Cheese Bites are super easy and cheap to make.  I slightly changed the recipe because I didn’t have bread crumbs and I like herbs!

Need:

16 oz. bag frozen chopped broccoli, thawed, rinsed

1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

3 eggs

1 cup of crushed croutons

salt and pepper

Italian spice mix (basil, rosemary, oregano, parsley)

Directions:

Set oven for 375*F

Mix all ingredients in a bowl

With you hands, form palm-sized patties.  With the mixture I did, I made about 17 patties.

Bake for 25 minutes!  Stacy’s Snacks says to flip for additional 15 minutes, but I didn’t and they turned out fine.  

So easy and delicious!

Soda Cake

This easy recipe calls for only two ingredients. How great is that?!

Need:
1 box of your favorite cake-mix (I personally love fun-fetti)
1 can of soda (I use 7-up, or Serra Mist. I bet you can use anything on hand. I even heard diet works)
Cake pan/cupcake pan
cooking oil

Directions:

Set oven to directions on your cake mix. (usually 325-350*)

Mix your can of soda into your cake mix until all major lumps are gone.

Pour batter into your lightly oiled cake pan. (you can go without but I had a little problem with the cake sticking on the pan- a little soaking and elbow grease solved that issue)

Cook for 20-25 minutes or until your knife/toothpick comes out clean.

The cake is amazingly moist and sweet. The sugar from the soda hardens a bit on the outside, so you have an interesting texture that I’m sure everyone will love. You don’t even have to mention how easy this was! 🙂
