Four Foods On Friday 40

Here are this week’s four questions. This week they’re about candy.  If you want to join Val’s Meme, check it out here.

#1. Candy. Do you prefer sweet or sour candy? Sweet

#2. Gum. Love it? Hate it? What kind is your favorite? Love it.  Anything that tastes like bubble gum, I like.

#3. What is your favorite candy? Its a tie between M&Ms and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

#4. Share a recipe for anything that you can include a piece of candy in.

Mini Pizza Cookies

1 20 oz tube of refrigerated sugar cookie dough
2 cups (16 oz) prepared pink frosting
M&Ms Chocolate Mini Baking Bits
Variety of additional toppings such as shredded coconut, granola, raisins, candy, nuts, small pretzels, snack mixes, sunflower seeds, popped corn, and mini marshmellows

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets and set aside.

Divide dough into 8 equal portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough into 1/4 inch thick circle. Place about 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake 10 – 13 minutes or until golden brown on edges. Cool completely on wire racks.

Spread top of each pizza with frosting. Sprinkle with M&M’s Chocolate Mini Baking Bits and 2 or 3 of the suggested toppings.

This is a great easy to make recipe for kids too! They truly enjoy being able to decorate their own “pizza”

Four Foods On Friday #26

Here is the Four Foods On Friday for this week. This is a great meme to be a part of. You don’t have to have a cooking blog to join in either! The only thing I would change is that I like it when the fourth question is a recipe better. I get a lot of good ideas from others!

#1. When going out to dinner what items do your order? Appetizers, soup, salad, dinner, dessert. When we are with the kids, we get dinner and then leave. When it’s just my husband and I, we get the whole nine yards.
#2. How predictable are you when eating out? Do you usually order a meal that you’ve had before or do you like to try new things? Very predictable. I always order the same thing.
#3. When eating at a restaurant, what beverage do you like to order with your meal? Sprite or a strawberry margarita.
#4. Name a meal that you ate at a restaurant that you liked so much you tried to recreate it, as well as the name of the restaurant and the recipe. Honestly, I am not a good enough cook to even try to recreate anything.

Aghhhhh!!!! I forgot to do this last week, because I tried to wait for Friday to actually do the meme!!! Therefore, this week I am doing it now, so I don’t forget! If you’d like to participate, head over to Fun, Crafts, and Recipes.

#1. What’s your favorite food smell? Pork chops. The funny thing is that I really don’t like to eat them all that much but I love how they smell when they are cooking.
#2. What’s your favorite kind of apple? Ummm apple pie? I don’t really eat just apples.
#3. What veggies do you like in your salad? Carrots.
#4. Share a recipe that uses beef.
