Full credit for this recipe goes to my husband, who makes the BEST milkshakes around! He has several specialties but this Oreo milkshake is both of our favorite, and he makes it frequently for us on the weekends. I made him measure out every ingredient last time he made them so that I could share it with you all!

How to make an Oreo Milkshake:

  • You only need FOUR ingredients: Vanilla ice cream, Oreo cookies, milk, and chocolate sauce.

The ingredients needed to make Oreo Milkshakes.

  • Combine ice cream, milk, chocolate sauce, and Oreos in a blender and blend until combined. Top with whipped cream.

Two process photos for making Oreo Milkshakes in a blender.

If you like a smooth shake blend all the ingredients at the same time. If you like your Oreo milkshake chunkier, either blend the Oreos briefly towards the end of mixing or crush them by hand and stir them in after all ingredients have blended.

Other Shake Variations:

  • Healthy (or healthier) Oreo shake: Substitute skim milk and use 6 Oreos instead of 12.
  • Vegan Oreo shake: Substitute almond milk and vegan vanilla ice cream. Omit whipping cream.
  • Caramel Oreo milkshake: Add a drizzle of caramel syrup to ingredients in blender.
  • Banana Oreo shake: Use a frozen banana and blend with all other ingredients.
  • Double chocolate Oreo shake: substitute chocolate ice cream for vanilla.

Menudong Giniling

It’s #PHLockdown Day 4. I decided I just have to do a day by day food diary, only the dayzzzz are way ahead of me.

I have again gone back to everyday, every meal cooking because everybody’s at home and they do nothing but — Eat, watch Netflix, Sleep, Repeat. It’s  a good thing I was able to stock up on essentials and more before the lock down started. Ka-syokot kaya lumabas araw-araw noh!

I wonder how many days and how many dishes I can come up with ng hindi lumalabas with just the stocks that we have here?

Today, I cooked MENUDONG GINILING.  These days, our food/ulam needs to have vegetables because we need nutritious food to boost our immune system.

At the same time kailangan din natin magtipid para ma-maximize natin ang ating savings. We don’t know how long this lockdown (Enhanced Community Quarantine) is gonna last, right? But of course, we don’t need to sacrifice the taste of our food, hence, my yummy MENUDONG GINILING.

It has potatoes, peas, corn, carrots, raisins, and tomato sauce. Of course, I seasoned it with Maggi Magic Sarap to make it more flavorful!

Kain na tayo! Anong ulam nyo today,mommies?

Spicy Mayo

All-purpose Spicy mayo for burgers, sandwiches, sushi, and fries is a must-have in any household and will become your new favorite dipping sauce!

Once you try this spicy mayo I promise there’s no going back to good old mayonnaise. This creamy spicy mayonnaise is will amplify the flavor of traditional mayonnaise and instantly take your dishes to the next level!

It’s one of the most used sauces in our home and for a good reason. It’s so EASY to make in refrigerates so well too.

What to Serve Spicy Mayo With?

Spicy mayo works great on burgers, chicken sandwiches, with any Asian dish as a drizzle (think fried rice/noodles), or as a dipping sauce for fries, nuggets, and just about anything else!

To Make Spicy Mayo you Will Need:

To make spicy mayo you will only need a few basic ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge. This recipe is super forgiving and can be adjusted to taste.

Mayonnaise: because mayonnaise is such a huge part of this dish we like to use the best mayonnaise we can find. My personal favorite mayo is Duke’s Mayonnaise (not sponsored!) but any other brand will work just fine!

Hot sauce or Sriracha: you will need a spicy sauce to add a kick to the mayo. Hot sauce (any type) or sriracha, or adobo (from chipotles in adobo can), garlic chili sauce, or any other spicy sauce will work!

Lime juice: this ingredient is actually optional but adds a zesty kick to the sauce. It can also be replaced with lemon juice or vinegar.

Cajun seasoning: cajun seasoning is a blend of spices that work really well in seasoning this dish. They can easily be replaced with taco seasoning, chili powder, or your favorite spice blend.

How to Make Spicy Mayonnaise?

Making spicy mayo takes less than 2 minutes and is as easy ask whisking together mayonnaise, hot sauce or sriracha, lime juice, and a dash of cajun or taco seasoning!

What can I Replace Mayonnaise With?

If there’s ever a time to splurge and use mayonnaise this would be it but if you’d like to make this recipe a bit healthier you can easily replace all, half, or some of the mayo with sour cream or Greek Yogurt.

How to Store Mayo

This spicy mayo will last in the fridge for a good month. Be sure to cover it well with plastic wrap or store it in a mason jar or any airtight container.

Rice Recipes – Outrageously delicious Rice MEALS for Dinner Tonight!

Think beyond fried rice – here’s my top 20 rice recipes that are rice meals for dinner! For all those times you’re wondering what to make with rice, I’m betting you’ve got everything you need to make at least one of these right now.

From an epic One Pot Greek Chicken and Rice, to a colourful beef and rice, stuffed peppers and rice soup, the one thing all these have in common other than RICE is that they’re easy to make and Can’t-Stop-Eating-It delicious.

Rice recipes – rice meals for dinner

Rice is so much more than a vehicle for soaking saucy stir fries and drowning in curry sauce. It’s endlessly versatile, it wants to soak up flavours so you can elevate any meal with rice sides like Curried Rice, Tomato Basil Rice, or the wildly popular Mushroom Rice.

And it can form the foundation of sensational rice meals. Quick to prepare, easy to make, save on washing up. Here’s my top rice meal recipes!

Scotcharoos

Scotcharoos are a perfect combination of butterscotch and peanut butter with a twist of a Rice Krispie crunch in the middle and a thick, rich chocolate layer that makes an irresistible treat. Sink your teeth in these ooey gooey bars!

Peanut butter-chocolate combination bars are always a hit in our family. This chocolate peanut butter bars or crunchy peanut butter bars are also very similar to these scotcharoos and have the same great flavors.

Scotcharoos Recipe

You just never know when you are going to need a sweet treat with a little crunch! This chocolate peanut butter bar is just what the doctor ordered. No bake is the best bars year round and makes it even simple for kids to help make in the kitchen. Microwave the chocolate or use the stove top for easy melting. While melting the chocolate measure out the Rice Krispie cereal for a hidden crunch in the bars. Because I like my bars more gooey, I only add in 5 cups instead of 6. Make them just the way you like!

Peanut butter with Rice Krispies and butterscotch and chocolate chips melted together make for a tasty treat! My family loves these and they usually disappear before we can share them with neighbors. We love to have these after dinner for a quick treat or put them in lunch boxes the next day. They are just the right amount of sweet and a hint of salty with the Rice Krispie cereal. That added crunch gives these bars that extra texture and thickness. Add these to your dessert list for sure!

Scotcharoos Ingredients:

  • Peanut Butter: Creamy peanut butter is best and smooth when mixing together.
  • Sugar: This sweetness helps bind everything together.
  • Light Karo Syrup: Thick and rich syrup that will hold it all together like glue for these bars to hold their form.
  • Rice Krispie Treat Cereal: The peanut butter-sugar mixture is stirred in the cereal that is rich, thick and crunchy. 
  • Butterscotch Chips: Melt these down and add to the chocolate melts. This is the “scotch” part of the scotcharoos.
  • Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: Microwave or melt on the stove top for a thick chocolatey-buterscotch layer over top.

How to Make Scotcharoos:

  1. Melt together: In a large sized microwave safe bowl, combine peanut butter, sugar and karo syrup.  Melt stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.  Add in Rice Krispies and stir until combined.
  2. Prepare a pan: Line a 9×13 inch pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper.  Spread the mixture evenly into the pan.
  3. Melt topping: In a medium sized microwave safe bowl add the butterscotch chips and chocolate chips.  Melt stirring every 30 seconds until smooth.  Pour on top and spread evenly over the bars.  Let cool completely.

The Recipe Critic Pro Tip:

You can also make the mixture on the stovetop, just be careful not to over cook or the bars will be hard.  Just melt until the sugar has dissolved.

Melting the peanut butter and sugar together then adding the cereal mixture and pressing it into the pan. Then adding the melted chocolate over top and letting sit.

More About Scotcharoos:

  • Peanut butter: It is best to stick to a natural peanut butter but an organic peanut butter will work. Just continue to make the creamy type. If you notice the peanut butter the oil has separated, simply stir and mix together before adding to the sugar.
  • Cereal: If you don’t have Rice Krispies or want to try another substitution, try corn flakes or Chex mix for more varieties.
  • Stove top: When making this on the stove top, make sure that your mixture does not boil or over cook. This will result in having dry or crumbly bars.

  • In a medium sized microwave safe bowl add the butterscotch chips and chocolate chips. Melt stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Pour on top and spread evenly over the bars. Let cool completely.

Notes

*Because I like my bars more gooey, I only added in 5 cups.

*You can also make the mixture on the stovetop, just be careful not to over cook or the bars will be hard.  Just melt until the sugar has dissolved.
