    I love the idea of this rack, but the plexiglass is entirely optional. The cans are held in place with the small edges. I don’t have as wide of an area in my pantry, I’m thinking of making a couple narrow ones for Tomatoes, which is about the only canned food Item that I have a ton of at any given time.

     

    Pantry Can Storage Rack Idea

     

     I’m kind of torn though, I saw this can rack on Amazon and I really like it. Each section holds 12-14 cans.

    FIFO Pantry Storage for Canned Goods

    This rack can hold up to 54 soup-size cans or 45 regular-size cans. It has two can rotation levels. When the top row has finished rotating, the middle track will begin to rotate through. This is great if you are looking to add an organizer to your pantry or cabinet for organizing soup or vegetable cans. Btw, this is 2 separate units, attached together.

    These sounded great, but I made mine a little differently.

    1/2 pound White American Cheese, diced up
    2 tablespoons chopped green chiles
    1 tablespoon pickled jalapeno slices diced fine
    1 tablespoon juice from the pickled jalapenos
    1/3 cup milk
    dash of cumin
    1 Can Black Beans, drained (completely optional)
    1 can Rotel (whatever level of spice you desire) (14 oz can)

    Dump the ingredients into a slow cooker, set on low for 4-6 hours. During the last 30 minutes of cooking add 2 cups Buffalo Chicken, diced.

    Serve over tortilla chips and garnish with minced cilantro, sour cream, sliced avocado or black olives, etc. Whatever you prefer on your nachos!

    We like to brush these with Italian Garlic butter just prior to baking and again once they come out of the oven.

    Quick-n-Easy No Yeast Dinner Rolls:

    1 1/2 cups Self-Rising Flour
    3/4 cup milk
    3 Tablespoons Mayo or 3 Packets from a fast food place!

    Combine all of the ingredients, then spoon the dough into a greased muffin pan.

    Makes 6 rolls

    Bake in a preheated Bake 375˚F oven for 18-20 minutes or till done and golden brown.

    Yes, 50 grams of buttercream would be about 3 1/2 tablespoons.

    Here’s another similar recipe shared by a local news station on TV following a recent Nor’eastah!

    Ingredients:

    1 c. Milk
    1 tsp Vanilla
    pinch salt
    8 cups of snow
    1/4 cup powdered sugar

    In a large bowl combine milk, vanilla extract and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes.
    Stir in snow, a cup at a time, until the ice cream magically forms! Freeze for several minutes if desired before serving.

    A side note, if you roll these in finely chopped nuts afterward, they taste like Ferrero Rocher chocolates!

    No Churn Version- in order to make a decent no churn ice cream, you have to have a higher sugar content and whip the cream first.

    1 3/4 c. heavy cream
    1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
    1/2 c. eggnog
    1 tbsp. ground nutmeg
    optional, add 2 tbs of Rum or Bourbon

    In a large bowl mix the sweetened condensed milk, eggnog, bourbon or rum (optional) and nutmeg until smooth.

    Whip the heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks, transfer half of the whipped cream into the eggnog mixture and fold until combined. Add the remaining whipped cream. Try to not overmix, whipping the cream is what adds the volume and the texture of the ice cream.

    Transfer the mixture to a loaf pan, cover and freeze overnight.

    Wow, that came out really amazing!!! If you want to build an igloo but you’re not quite up to the challenge of the one above, you could also build a pallet igloo like this one

    or you could build a traditional igloo like this one:

    See it on Amazon

    Usually cats don’t need lower calories, they need less food. How much and how often are you feeding her each day.

    It sounds like she may be consuming too much of her normal food.  A healthy, active, 10-lb adult cat requires 270-320 calories per day.

    Typically, dry food contains about 300 calories per cup.

    You’ll Need
    2 whole large peaches
    2 8 oz cans crescent rolls
    2 sticks butter
    1-1/2 cup sugar
    1 tsp vanilla
    cinnamon, to taste
    1 1/2 cups orange juice

    Ok, I thought I’d give this one a go, but I wasn’t too crazy about the amount of sugar in it so I’ve revamped it a bit.

    First, there’s only 2 of us, so I’m cutting the recipe in half.

    1 large peach
    1 8 oz can crescent rolls
    1/2 stick butter
    1/2 cup sugar + 1 tsp Cinnamon
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    cinnamon, to taste
    3/4 cup orange juice

    I used a pie plate, rather than a 9×13, since I greatly reduced the recipe.

    I mixed the cinnamon and sugar together, then mixed half of that with the melted butter and drizzled it over the top of the crescent wrapped peaches. Then poured the orange juice in the bottom, so it would surround the peaches.

    I then sprinkled the remaining cinnamon/sugar blend over the tops of the crescent peaches and baked them.

    They were delicious, not sickeningly sweet and we’ll definitely try them with other fruits to see how they come out.
