Skinny Baked Mozzarella Sticks

easy-skinny-baked

 

Who doesn’t love cheese sticks? Courtesy of our friends at Skinnytaste.com, here’s a healthy way to indulge!

When it comes to entertaining guests at a party or event, as the host you have a lot of responsibilities, beginning from the interior design of the rooms and ending to the seating and food on the table. For the last part we have a delicious suggestion: skinny baked mozzarella sticks. These bite-size snacks are so tasty you might want to make a couple of plates just to make sure people aren’t craving for more right in the middle of your event. In order to make this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

• flour;
• breadcrumbs;
• Mozzarella cheese;
• Parmesan cheese;
• large eggs;
• parsley;
• tomato sauce;

The procedure is rather simple and you will be done with making a batch of these tasty snacks in a matter of minutes. Start by pouring 2 tablespoons of flour on a large plate. Then, mix 1 tablespoon of parsley with 5 tablespoons of breadcrumbs and 2 tablespoons of Parmesan. Beat the egg in another bowl and dip the freshly frozen Mozzarella sticks (maybe cut them to smaller sizes) in it, not before you already rolled them through the flour. Next, cover the stick with the contents from the bowl of crumbs. Do the same for all of your Mozzarella cheese sticks while you preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place them on an aluminum foil pan, sprinkle some oil on top, and bake for 5 to 10 minutes just until they don’t melt. Enjoy!

Easy Barrel Cake – Easter Idea

easter-bunny-cake-design

 

Whenever a baking project goes wrong you are tempted to throw everything away and start all over. We’re here to tell you, you don’t have to disrespect your work only because of a little mistake. And even if it’s not the case of a ruined cake, this next tutorial for making a barrel cake is perfect to keep in mind just in case you want a special type of recipe to bake. Here is what you will need:

• some icing or frosting;
• a couple of spatulas;
• a bunch of long and thin candies or cookies (like Kit Kat, Twix, etc.);
• strawberries, M&M’s or jelly beans to use as toppings;
• (optional) a string of ribbon;

Now, you can even start work with a cake literally in 5 pieces. No need to worry at this point, because the frosting will act like some sort of glue to all the ingredients. Begin frosting your sides and continue with the top of the cake. Most of the times, the advice is to fashion a crumb coat at first, before applying the frosting or icing. Because when decorating in the barrel cake way, it’s not like changing the interior design of your room: it can be clean, or messy, or in between. Because the candy will cover it! So, grab the thing bars of candies or cookies. Use the frosting as adhesive on the back of each candy and attach them to the cake, making sure they all touch each other at the end, all the way round the cake. Don’t be afraid to cut them in order to fit the pattern. When this step is done, you can move on to filling the top of the cake with strawberries or other jelly beans. Bon appetite!
