Spring and Summer Grilled Cheese Recipes

Spring and Summer Grilled Cheese Recipes | http://www.roseclearfield.com

Grilled cheese is sort of one of the best foods ever. While I don’t crave warm food in spring and summer the way I do in fall and winter, a grilled cheese still sounds pretty good any day of the week. I could eat basically the same grilled cheese sandwich for a couple of weeks straight and not even get remotely tired of it. Then I’d pick up a new flavor of goat cheese at the grocery store and be good to go for another couple of weeks. There are so many inspired seasonal flavors to experiment with for grilled cheese during the warmer months of the year. When you’re ready to switch up your normal grilled cheese routine, try one or more of the following seasonal spring and summer grilled cheese recipes.

birthday wish list

My 34th birthday is a week from today! I absolutely don’t expect any of my blog readers to get me a gift. I like sharing my birthday wish list because I always enjoy reading other people’s wish lists.

Canon 80D via Amazon | http://www.roseclearfield.com

The one item I’ve really wanted for this birthday is the Canon 80D. It was actually released just before my last birthday, and I’ve been dreaming about it ever since. It’s a little bittersweet upgrading from my Rebel t4i because it was my first DSLR and it changed my life. But the 80D is an amazing camera. Jake and I are taking a big international trip later this year. Everyone recommends bringing a spare camera body for this type of trip, just in case something happens to your main camera body. So this is the time to make the jump.

My 80D is actually in transit right now and is scheduled to arrive before my birthday. I’m so excited to share some 80D test shots with you over the next few weeks.

10 Tips for Better Beach Photography

10 Tips for Better Beach Photography | http://www.roseclearfield.com

It’s not a surprise that I love taking pictures at the beach. I’ve lived near Lake Michigan the majority of my life and have been taking pictures of it for years. The past year and a half, I’ve lived half a block from the lake. I spend a lot of time watching Lake Michigan and photograph it nearly every week. I’m certainly not an expert, but I’ve learned quite a few tips for better beach photography, which help me to keep creating more polished, more professional images.

No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies | http://www.roseclearfield.com

Is there any better flavor combination than chocolate and peanut butter? It’s hard to believe that there could be a more delicious pairing. However, adding oatmeal to the mix is pretty perfect, too. No-bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies would be worth a bit of effort. But they come together in a matter of minutes without even turning on the oven.

Jake’s paternal grandma made these no-bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies for decades. She was kind enough to send me her recipe. Now I’ve been making her recipe for over a decade. I’ve never added or swapped out an ingredient or attempted any other sort of variation. It’s one of those simple recipes that’s so good it doesn’t need any improvement.

The no-bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies are gluten-free. Gluten-free doesn’t mean healthy. But it does mean they’re a great option for a little indulgence if you’re eating gluten-free or you need a last-minute dessert for a classroom party or other social gathering with people in attendance who are eating gluten-free.

Usually, Apollo is my photography buddy. Hobbes was my photography buddy for this blog shoot. I photograph food every week for the blog or Instagram. But something about this cookie shoot was really exciting.

With or without a kitty helper, if you bake regularly, most likely you already have the ingredients to make these cookies on hand. Whip up a batch tonight.

Instructions
  1. Cover two cookie sheets with wax paper.
  2. Combine the sugar, cocoa, milk, and butter in a large saucepan. Stir occasionally while bringing to a boil. Boil for one minute.
  3. Add the oatmeal, peanut butter, and vanilla. Stir until just combined. Turn off the heat.
  4. Using a spoon, drop the mixture in tablespoon-sized portions onto the wax paper-covered cookie sheets. There should be just enough room to fit all of the cookies onto two cookie sheets.
  5. Put the cookies into the refrigerator to cool. Once the cookies have cooled, you can store them in the refrigerator or in a sealed Tupperware container at room temperature.
Recipe Notes

The cookies keep well right on the cookie sheets in the refrigerator or in a sealed Tupperware container at room temperature. They'll stay moist for 5-7 days.

I make my no-bake chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies with regular, creamy peanut butter. I recommend regular, not natural, peanut butter. Creamy or crunchy will work well.

Unless otherwise noted, I always bake with salted butter. I also always use soy milk for my recipes that call for milk. I have not tested them with any other type of milk.
