Honey Wafers

A new snack we recently tried at my house are the Original Honey Filled and Chocolate Filled Wafer Thins. I never had these before, but Bill recalls have these a young child. He actually might have. Bill grew up in this area and this company is based out of Crestwood, IL! What are Honey Wafers? They are two crispy light 8 inch wafer rounds that are hand-sandwiched together with a honey filling. I’ve been hoarding the chocolate ones to myself, because I like them so much.  However, I have let the kids and the hubby at the honey ones.  We even brought some of these to a family get together, and they were a huge hit.  Everyone wanted to know where we got them from!  I also like that they are 100% natural.  Honey Wafers have no preservatives, no saturated fat, no trans fats, and no cholesterol.  They are even certified kosher!  These make an excellent snack too, because they are only 90 calories!  My first thought when I took a bite was that it tastes like an ice cream cone.  When you get down to the filling part, that just makes it all the more better.  I actually found this snack pretty filling and something I could definitely give both of my kids to eat as a snack.

If you are looking for a healthy snack for you or your kids to try, Honey Wafers is definitely something you should check into.  Not only are they healthy, they taste great too!

Pasta Pizza Pie

This easy to make recipe is again from Prego. I made a few changes to it and made it my own. It also said to cook with a pizza pan. Unfortunately, pizza pan had holes in the bottom. I figured that wouldn’t work too well, so I talked to Elizabeth over at MomCooks, and she suggested a cookie sheet. That worked great. If you don’t have a pizza pan, definately use a cookie sheet instead. Like the last Prego recipe I did, this again will feed a family of 4 for under $20 (actually, I think the total for this recipe was $14.71). In this economy, we can all use recipes like this.
