Back to (Old) School

Back to (Old) School

Parents! It’s that time again! September is just around the corner, and you know what that means: Back to school (AKA spending all sorts of money on new crayons and markers that your kids insist they “need”–trust me. Been there, done that). But instead of stressing about back-to-school errands, just remember there are still a few days left before school starts, and you still have time for one last hurrah! Now’s your chance to throw one last pool party for you and your kids, and we’re here to help with the planning.

No matter how old we get, we’re all still kids on the inside, so here are some tasty recipes that bring delicious twists to some of the classics.

Cup o’ Dirt

Think back to your childhood. It’s a sunny, summer day; there are grass stains on your clothes that are so fresh you can still smell them, and in the far right corner of your yard, you see it. That big, beautiful, brown mud pit. It’s calling your name, and like any other kid, you neglect any hygienic common sense, so you dive right in and start building the most perfect, sloppy, and delicious mud pie. 

Since eating said mud pie wasn’t very tasty (and frankly, looked down upon), we’ve discovered a happy and just as lovely alternative: Dirt Pudding Cups (Cups o’ Dirt). Chocolate pudding, Oreo crumbles, and gummy worms combine wonderfully to make the grossest and yet most deliciously muddy dessert you can find. Here’s how to do it!

Ingredientsworms-in-dirt-pudding-cups-recipe-

1, 15 oz. package of Oreos (or similar cookie)
1, 3.9 oz. package chocolate instant pudding
2 cups cold milk
8 oz. whipped topping (cool whip/reddi whip)
24 gummy worms

Directions

1. Make the dirt: put all of the sandwich cookies into a gallon-size ziploc bag and then use a rolling pin to crush them until they are at what you consider “good quality soil”.

2. Make the pudding: Pour the dry pudding mix into a large bowl and add cold milk. Whisk it all together until it’s smooth, and then let it sit for about 5 minutes until it thickens.

3. Mix it all together: Add the whipped cream and most of the cookie crumbles to the pudding, and gently stir until you have a good, muddy-looking texture. (If you really want it to look gross, mix the gummy worms into the pudding mixture as well). If not, go ahead and stick them right on top and surround them with the Oreo cookie crumbles.

Now you’re ready to go!

Pizza Grilled Cheese

Here is an obvious, and well-known fact: People love pizza.
Obvious, well-known fact number two: People love grilled cheese.
So….why not put them together?!

This is one of my favorite recipes, and it’s not just because it’s pizza on a grilled cheese. (Okay, you got me. That’s most of it). The other reason is because pizza is so versatile, that regardless of what you put on your pizza grilled cheese, it will be absolutely delicious. For now, here’s the recipe for a basic pepperoni pizza grilled cheese:

Ingredients:pizza grilled cheese

1/4-1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese (shredded or sliced is easiest and melts the best, but if you want to be fancy, feel free to go with the really fresh kind)
5-6 Pepperoni rounds
1/4 cup of Marinara Sauce
2 slices of Bread (Sourdough, French bread, whole grain…whatever makes you happy, it’s all delicious)

(Quantity depends on how many you are serving. For now, this recipe calls for one sandwich)

Directions:

First! You must prep your grilled cheese: Spread the marinara sauce evenly along one slice of the bread. (If you put too much on, it gets really messy, really fast.) Now, layer on that cheese–I suggest just enough so that you can’t see the marinara sauce under the cheese. Up next, you’re going to put on the pepperoni (5-6 small rounds works well on one sandwich)–At this point, you may be done loading your sandwich, however if there are other delicious toppings the kids would like, I might suggest a “Pizza Grilled Cheese Bar” where each person can pick the best toppings to go on their sandwich.

Once you’re all prepped, put your sandwich together and butter the outer side of each slice of bread. This will give you a nice, crispy coating when you’re all done. If you want to add some more flavor, sprinkle some Italian seasonings over the butter or even better, Parmesan cheese.

The best way to cook this delicious pizza sandwich? The grill. I mean…it’s called Grilled Cheese for a reason! So, set your grill for 350º F. Once it’s all heated and warm, align your sandwich with the grates of your BBQ so it really gets that “grilled” look to it. Cook on each side for about 2 and a half minutes or until the bread is a nice, golden brown color. Just make sure to keep an eye on it! After 2 and a half minutes, flip your sandwich and repeat. If the cheese isn’t melted all the way, turn the grill down to low and let it sit until your sandwich is what you consider to be the perfect consistency.

This sandwich will have everyone asking for a “PIZZA” that grilled cheese!

S’mores Bar

There aren’t many people in the world that would turn down a classic S’more. These melty chocolate, boiling hot marshmallow, and crunchy graham cracker sandwiches tend to win, hands down, in the “best campfire dessert” category. Kids these days love switching things up daily, so why not create an exciting twist with a classic S’more? Here are some ideas of what to get:s'mores bar with reese's butterfinger hersheys nutella and other great ingredients!

1. Various chocolate bars (Reese’s, Butterfinger Cups, Kit Kats)

2. Different sandwich options (graham crackers of course, chocolate chip cookies, Nilla wafers)

3. Spreads to pump up the flavor (Nutella, Cookie Butter, Peanut Butter, Caramel)

Don’t have a campfire? Keep your barbecue on! S’mores cooked on the grill will make sure your marshmallows and chocolate sandwiches are perfectly melted, and wonderfully gooey. All you have to do is prep your S’more, wrap it in heavy-duty foil, and put it over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until the marshmallow is melted. Perfectly classic S’mores, customized to your liking, and absolutely delicious.

to throw pizza dough. After you have prepped your dough you can either press it or roll it to about half the size you want. From there if you’re right handed you will toss and spin it clockwise with your right hand ( if you go counter clockwise it will run away from you) you should be tossing with an open hand and with your palm up, to catch use your left hand in a closed ( fist) position with your palm down. Continue to toss and spin until centrifugal force expands the dough to the size you want.

Why do you toss the dough instead of rolling it all the way, if you roll it removes some water from the dough and it makes the crust hard.

Some tips and tricks from our Redmond team:

  1. I read the owners manual (You are probably thinking DUH! But there are some great tips on how to use the oven in there!)
  2. The manual says to turn the pizza 180 degrees half way through. If our

  3. In reading the manual they really stress the preheat cycle to be followed, run on high for 10 minutes, but no longer than 15, to prevent overheating
  4. Wait till the unit hits 700 degrees before putting the pizza on the stone.
  5. When done turn off the unit.
  6. Eat LOTS and LOTS of pizza and enjoy!

Vegetarian Pizzas with Caramelized Onions, Peppers and Blue Cheese

Vegetarian Pizzas with Caramelized Onions, Peppers and Blue Cheese

Serves: 4 // Prep time: 30 minutes | Grilling time: 4 to 10 minutes

pizza-square

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm 3 tablespoons of the oil. Add the onions and sugar and cook until golden, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the vinegar and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the salt. Transfer the onions to a bowl and return the skillet over medium-high heat. Warm 2 teaspoons of the remaining oil and add the bell pepper. Cook until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat.
  2. Divide the dough into four equal pieces. Lightly brush four 9-inch squares of parchment paper on one side with oil. Using your fingers, flatten each piece of dough on an oiled square of parchment paper to create four rounds, each 7 to 8 inches in diameter and about ¼ inch thick. Lightly brush the tops of the dough with oil. Allow the dough to stand at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  3. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350°F to 450°F).
  4. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the dough, paper side facing up, over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until it is well marked and firm on the underside, 2 to 5 minutes, rotating as needed for even cooking. Discard the parchment paper. Transfer the crusts to a work surface with the grilled side facing up.
  5. Evenly divide the mozzarella, onions, bell peppers, blue cheese, and walnuts over the crusts. Return the pizzas to the grill and cook over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until the cheese is melted and the bottom of the crusts are crisp, 2 to 5 minutes, rotating the pizzas occasionally for even cooking. Transfer to a cutting board, sprinkle with parsley,
