Occasionally, I like to challenge myself into making store bought packaged foods, at home. Why? You might ask. Because not only is it fun to recreate classic products at home, but it is a whole-of-a-lot healthier making it yourself, than buying it from the store. You see, the ones at the market are filled with tons of salt, preservatives, additives, artificial flavorings, tons of words you can’t even pronounce like, maltodextrinalkinadeformuladesodiumglutamine……..Who wants to ingest that? I know I don’t. Take my word for it, you don’t want to either.
Anyhow, this time I actually wanted to repay a dear friend for helping me out at school with all my constant photo-lab questions. She managed to survive all my freak outs, inquiries, and indecisiveness that came along with my first project this semester. Without her I would’ve been lost. So to show my immense gratitude I decided to, much like I often do, make her something tasty. That is one thing you’ll quickly learn about me; I love repaying/giving people homemade baked goodies or even food. You’ll be surprised just how people react to such a gesture. Try it. At least once in your life. I always say that it isn’t about the gift itself. You don’t have to spend a fortune on a present, just make them something from the heart. Whether it’s a card, craft, or yummy treat, the recipient will enjoy it so much more. Well, said friend, has a fascination, I would call it a strange addiction, to all things fish. In fact, I actually met her in one of my classes where she made a fish project, with dangling fish. It was really cool. So since her favorite snacks are Cheddar Goldfish, you know, the ones we all enjoyed as children…I still do, I decided that I would make her some. Better ones. Tastier ones. Healthier ones. Gourmet ones. Okay, you guys get the point. I made her some.
I scoured and scoured the internet for a great recipe, and didn’t have to look far because I found the best one at Tasty Kitchen. Need I say more? I always find amazing recipes there, and this one was no different. And best of all it is ridiculously simple. Only five ingredients. I should call it a 5 Ingredient Fix recipe, because Claire Robinson would be proud about this one.
