Roasted Grapes

I just would like to start by saying that I didn't come up with this on my own.  My mother in law learned about this idea in a cooking class and told me about it.  ( I added the blue cheese though)  Also, you need to try this, because its just good. 

 In a baking dish.  drizzle some olive oil over some grapes.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast them in the oven for 40-45 minutes

They should look like this.

 Pair the grapes with your favorite cheese! I chose Maytag blue cheese! I live in Iowa after all!

The flavor combo was fantastic! Left me salivating for more!

What a great little afternoon snack!

One tip though. Make sure you roast them for at least 40 minutes at 350.  otherwise the grapes flavor wont be a great!

Pretzel Eiffel tower masterpiece!

What can I say? Only that I have always wanted to make something that looks like the Eiffel tower. I mean for a REALLY long time!   I thought I would use craft sticks or something.  Not food. 

I saw This Ice cream sundae Eiffel tower on Pinterest. the other day, and I got inspired.

I have an 11 day old baby at home.  This afternoon I was in an out of REM sleep on the couch ( watching him sleep in the bouncy seat) dreaming about how I would put this Eiffel tower together. 

So, after we both woke up, fed and changed him.  I decided to see if I could put this together. 

Here are the ingredients you will need to make your own pretzel Eiffel tower. 

1) A handful of pretzels.
2) 1 Saltine cracker.
3) 1 Cheeze it cracker
4) a teaspoon or so of cream cheese.

I used the cream cheese as the glue. and put together my structure VERY carefully.  enjoyed it for a moment or two...then devoured it!  ( it turns out that onion and chive cream cheese taste pretty darn good with pretzels)

So then after I finnished, I was thinking that if you wanted your Eiffel tower to last longer, you could use frosting and maybe graham crackers.  That would also be a great snack, and the frosting might stick better.
