But those that don’t know about it, are missing out! Cookie salad is such a fun dish that everyone from grandma to the kids can enjoy it.

Recipe for Cookie Salad

I got this recipe from my husband’s aunt, and it’s always been a huge hit at family dinners. My husband would probably eat it for breakfast if I let him. (I can hear him now… “It has fruit! It’s healthy!” Ha. Nice try.) I like to serve it as a little treat alongside a nice Sunday dinner or for holiday dinners, like Easter or New Year’s. Regardless of when you plan to serve it, I hope you enjoy it- it’s delicious!

What is Cookie Salad?

Cookie salad is a creamy dish that combines vanilla pudding, mandarin oranges, fudge striped cookies, and whipped cream. Popular in Minnesota and North Dakota, it’s a dish mostly served around potlucks and family gatherings. Although cookie salad history is unclear on when it originated, it still feels like it’s been around for a few generations.

Is Cookie Salad a Side Dish or Dessert?

Honestly, it’s a bit of both. My husband’s family refers to it as a salad and I personally see it as more of a dessert. Either way, it’s a tasty recipe that everyone enjoys. Bring it out at your next summer barbecue and watch it disappear just as quickly.

Can I Use Oreos?

While true fans of cookie salad will say that you should stick to fudge striped cookies, Oreos can be used. The chocolate and cream flavored cookies taste great in the mix too!

How Long Will Cookie Salad Last?

It can last up to a day or two in the fridge after the cookies have been added, but the longer the cookies are in the mixture, the softer they become. Personally, I think this salad tastes best the first day that it’s made, so I recommend eating it as soon as possible for best tasting results.

Breakfast Rolls filled with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage & cheese then rolled in homemade dough and baked to perfection. These rolls are perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner!

Breakfast Rolls came from two things: first, my absolutely love for all things breakfast. Second, my kids go crazy when I make my Pizza Pinwheels, so I thought to modify those into breakfast fare. The result. OMG. Seriously. They’re so insanely delicious. I love that they’re handheld and still have the high protein breakfast foods I love- eggs, bacon & sausage! They come together quickly too. I use pre-cooked bacon, sausage and store-bought shredded cheese. You can even scramble the eggs in the microwave if you’d like! You can prep all the filling while the homemade dough is resting in a warm spot. Try them- you’ll love them!

Breakfast Rolls

Makes 13-15 rolls, about 4-6 servings

Breakfast Rolls ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make these breakfast rolls:

–1 cup warm water

–1 TBSP yeast

–1 TBSP sugar

–1 TBSP oil

–1 tsp salt

–2 1/2- 3 cups flour

TOPPINGS

–2 TBSP melted butter

–2 cups shredded Cheddar Jack cheese

–12-15 cooked sliced of thin bacon, chopped

–6 cooked breakfast sausages, chopped

–4 large eggs, scrambled

  1. Combine warm water, yeast and sugar in a mixing bowl and let sit for about 3-4 minutes, until yeast is bubbling up. Add in oil, salt and flour. Start with 2 1/2 cups of flour, then add more until the dough cleans the sides of the mixing bowl. (I use a mixer for this part as it makes it just so much easier!) Continue mixing for an additional 3-4 minutes, then cover with plastic wrap and let sit in a warm place for 15 minutes. In cold weather, I like to turn my oven on for about 3 or 4 minutes, then turn it off and let my dough rest in the oven.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Spray counter top with non-stick cooking spray and roll dough out into a large rectangle about 1/4″ thick. Brush dough with melted butter, then spread with scrambled eggs. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top (reserving about 1/2 cup for later), then spread bacon and sausage.
  4. Starting with one of the long sides of the rectangle, roll dough up tightly, working from one end to the other end horizontally, then back again. Pinch the seams closed at the end. Use a sharp, thin knife to cut 1 1/2″ sections of dough from the large roll. This will result in about 15 rolls.
  5. Set rolls on a large greased baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven and top rolls with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Return to oven for an additional 1-2 minutes, until cheese is melted and rolls are just beginning to turn golden brown.
  6. Brush with melted butter again, if desired. Serve warm. Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container.

HOMEMADE CORNBREAD RECIPE – Butter with a Side of Bread by Gordon Ramsay

HOMEMADE CORNBREAD RECIPE - Butter with a Side of Bread


Homemade Cornbread recipe that is moist, slightly sweet and topped with a delicious honey butter. This easy cornbread recipe is made from scratch in one bowl with basic ingredients and it turns out perfectly every time. PLUS, we've got a little trick for making sure every single bite is full of honey of butter!

Homemade Cornbread is very simple to make and I love this recipe because it really is the perfect cornbread. Sometimes cornbread is really sweet and tastes more like cake, but this cornbread has a very subtle sweetness which just means you can add more honey on top, right? I’ve also had a lot of cornbread that is too dry – anyone else? This recipe is perfectly moist, but still a bit crumbly, just like cornbread should be.

Since my whole family loves honey on their cornbread, I like to poke holes in the cornbread right when it’s done baking. Mix some honey and butter together and drizzle that all over the top. Because of the fork holes, the honey butter will soak into the cornbread evenly and not just sit on the top. If you’ve never tried doing this, you’re missing out!

Ingredients for making cornbread from scratch

Ingredients in Homemade Cornbread

Flour – All purpose flour works great!

Sugar – Adds just the right amount of sweetness to the cornbread. Less than a cup for the whole recipe which makes a large batch (9X13).

Baking powder and salt- Don’t skip the baking powder and make sure you use the full amount! Make sure your baking powder is not old or expired because it won’t work as well.

Cornmeal – Can be found in the baking aisle near the flour. You can use either yellow or white cornmeal, but yellow cornmeal is a little bit sweeter and that’s what I prefer to use.

Eggs – This recipe uses 5 eggs!

Milk – I usually use regular 1% or 2% milk, but any type of milk should work fine. I’ve never tried using a dairy-free milk, but I would imagine it would work fine too!

Butter flavored Crisco – You can use regular shortening, but the butter flavored variety adds a bit of flavor and it’s what I prefer to use in most baking recipes that call for shortening.

How to make cornbread from scratch

How to make cornbread from scratch

Preheat oven to 350°.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cornmeal together.

Add the eggs, milk and shortening and use an electric mixer to mix until combined. You’ll have to mix for a minute or two to break up the shortening. There will still be little lumps of shortening, but as soon as all the larger pieces are gone and the shortening is mostly incorporated, stop mixing. You don’t want to overmix the batter.

Pour into a well-greased 9X13 pan and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. The cornbread should be a light golden brown on top. Make sure not to overcook the cornbread or it can start to dry out.

As soon as the cornbread comes out of the oven, melt together 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup honey. This is easy to do in the microwave. Poke holes in the cornbread with a fork and then drizzle the honey butter mixture over the cornbread.

What to serve with cornbread?

Cornbread pairs well with a lot of different meals, but we usually serve it with soup. You just can’t have taco soup  or chili without cornbread! Cornbread also pairs well with baked beans. It also works well as a side for barbecue! It goes perfectly with Grilled Spatchcock Chicken, BBQ Chicken…pretty much anything that goes on the grill!

Slice of homemade cornbread

Why did my cornbread not rise?

This recipe always rises perfectly, likely because it has a lot of baking powder in it! I’ve never used that much baking powder in a recipe before but it works! Just make sure that your baking powder is not expired. Also, make sure not to overmix the batter as this can cause the cornbread to fall as well.
