Quick and Dirty Donuts

We get it. You don’t want to waste time in the kitchen on Christmas morning when you’ve just unwrapped a new iPhone 6 or a new hover board. (I’m talking to you, Santa.) These donuts will be done in minutes and are perfect for bites in between setting up the new background on your phone…

  • 1 can biscuits (I prefer Pillsbury but really anything will do. You know we’re not picky).
  • 4-5 cups canola oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar

In a saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat.  Cut each of the biscuits into fours and place them in the hot oil. You’ll notice that they’ll start to brown almost immediately. After roughly 1 minutes, using tongs, flip them over to cook on the other side. Once browned on all sides, place them on a paper towel to soak up the extra oil. Let cool for 1 minute. Pour the sugar in a bowl, and roll in the donuts to coat them.

You can get creative here and add some cinnamon, or brown sugar to the coating sugar.

Store Bought Savior

This is for the people like my sister that never really want to cook food and are 100% ok with just “preparing food”. Luckily, this quick and yummy week night fix requires no actual cooking. Simply assemble and bake. I got the idea from an appetizer at one of my favorite fusion Indian spots. Hope you guys dig it as much as I do. It’s ridiculous easy and tasty, what’s not to love about Naan Pizza.

  • Store bought naan (I buy the Trader Joe’s garlic naan, but plain or onion naan works)
  • Store bought tikka masala curry (Again the TJ stuff is great)
  • Spinach salad packet (I mean ‘cuz your not actually gunna make salad out of it, are you?)
  • Fresh mozzarella (Any cheese would work really)
  • Rotisserie chicken (or if you wanna make it veggie friendly try eggplant slices or mushrooms)

Smear a tablespoon or two (depends on how saucy you want your “pizza” to be, I do 2 myself) on to the slice of naan then take a fistful of spinach and layer on with the cheese and shredded chicken. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees or until the cheese melts and everything is warmed through. You can cut up and serve as an appetizer or have it as dinner with wine at about a naan piece per person. Package has four naan pieces usually and that’s generally enough for the chicken, spinach, curry, and cheese to cover.

Tasty Treat

If you thought the Fall Favorite was easy, you don’t even know what you are getting into with this Pumpkin Dip. There is no cooking required. There are no utensils or dishes required. Yet this is the yummiest snack on the planet! Yup planet, not country, but the whole damn world. I get it, the lamb chops or roast chicken may not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, I know damn well you can make this! Grab the 4 whopping ingredients and get stirring, this tasty treat won’t last long in anyone’s kitchen.

  • One container of Cool Whip (you can get the low fat stuff)
  • One small box of vanilla pudding mix (don’t make it, just the powder)
  • 1 15 oz. can of pumpkin (again not the pie mix, actual pumpkin)
  • One teaspoon of cinnamon
Directions:
  • Combine all ingredients
  • Chill for 30 minutes (throw it in your fridge & pull out as a snack, dessert, etc. whenever, the 30 minutes is more of a suggestion than rule)

Enjoy with:

  • Graham crackers
  • Vanilla wafers (I even crushed some up to decorate the top with)
  • Apples
  • Your fingers, a spoon, I am not kidding. So freaking good. Lick the bowl, good.
