Fried Ice Cream: Simple & Delicious

I grew up in Arizona and we didn’t call it Mexican food – we just called it FOOD! For Cinco de Mayo tomorrow you may want to try this delicious favorite, Fried Ice Cream! I admit that I leave out the traditional coconut, but the secret ingredient is FROSTED FLAKES instead of corn flakes. Mmmm… Can’t wait to make some tomorrow!
1 quart Vanilla Ice Cream (don’t skimp on quality!)
3 Egg Whites
Frosted Flakes, 1 1/2 cups crushed (I put mine through my food processor)
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon sugar (optional)
sweetened coconut (optional)
2 quarts of vegetable oil (for deep frying)
Scoop ice cream and flash freeze on a cookie tray until very hard (best in a deep freeze for at least an hour, regular freezer for at least 2 hours). In a bowl large enough to put a scoop of ice cream, beat the egg whites (with the cinnamon sugar if using). In another bowl put the crushed cereal (combined with coconut if using). Roll ice cream scoops in the egg whites and then the cereal until completely coated.
Return scoops to freezer for at least 2 hours.
Heat oil to 375*
With slotted spoon, place scoops in oil and fry for about 30 seconds or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels or brown paper bag. Serve with whipped cream and other ice cream toppings or just by itself!

Frugal Cinco de Mayo Party Tips

Gathering friends together to celebrate Cinco de Mayo is a great reason to party and can be fun. It can also be an easy way to blow your budget as well. If your tempted to throw a party for Cinco de Mayo but are worried about spending a fortune don’t let that hold you back. Here are a few tips for throwing a great fiesta on the cheap.

Tip # 1
Shop the Dollar Stores

Dollar stores are a great place to buy the perfect decorations inexpensively. Bright colored streamers are always in stock and are a quick fix if your lacking in decorations. It’s also a great place to pick up party favors. Often you can find similar items that they carry at the party supply stores for a fraction of the cost.

Tip #2

Buy In Bulk

Shopping at warehouse club store like Sam’s Club or Costco can be a great place to pick up the items you will need in large quantities. Paper goods like napkins, cups and plates can be expensive. Buying in bulk is one way to pinch your pennies and the best way to go if your going to have a large gathering.

Tip #3
Make it a Potluck

Food is always one of the most expensive items at any party. Th cost can add up quickly. Invite your guest to bring their favorite mexican dish to share. This is a easy way to pull a party together quickly, enjoy everyones’s dishes and lessen the expense of food.

Tip #4

Create Your Own Play List

Forget hiring a D.J. with today’s technology you can be your own. Create a playlist on your computer or Ipod. After you’ve made your own mix burn it to a CD or set up on iHome. Let your music play for the perfect background party music.

Use these tips to pull together a fun and frugal Cinco de Mayo!

Quick & Delicious Bread: Irish Soda Bread!

If you are looking for a quick homemade bread with delicious flavor, you should definitely try Irish Soda Bread. This recipe is so simple and inexpensive but the results are bakery delicious!
Ingredients: 4 C bread flour (I make my own bread flour by adding wheat gluten to my regular flour – 1 tablespoon for every cup); 1 tablespoon baking powder; 1 teaspoon salt; 3/4 teaspoon baking soda and 2 C buttermilk (I never have buttermilk on hand, so I use this powdered buttermilk – works great!)
Instructions: Combine dry ingredients. Add buttermilk. Stir until it becomes a dough and then turn onto floured surface and knead for about a minute. You can add nuts, seeds, fruit, etc. if you want.
Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a ball. Place the two balls onto a greased cookie sheet. Cut an X on the top of each loaf using a sharp knife (1/2″ deep). Bake at 350* for 50-55 minutes. Bread is done when you can stick a knife in the middle of a loaf and it comes out clean. Let cool on baking racks.
Try it, you’ll like it!
