There’s nothing like spending a long weekend back at home with Mom to make me feel like a kid again! No wonder I’m craving a big bowl of gooey mac and cheese now, but the stuff in the blue box doesn’t always cut it anymore when you’re an adult. Here are some grown up twists on a few of my favorite childhood meals! I shudder to think about how many hot dogs I consumed between the ages of 8 and 10, but banh mi weenies get two thumbs up from 30 year old me.
If a campfire s’more met a slice of pumpkin pie at a party, and they went on to fall in love and have babies, this would be the result: Gooey marshmallow. A rich dollop of pumpkin goodness. Crunchy bites filled with ginger and cinnamon. What a heavenly mashup!

Ok this post won’t do you any favors if you’re working on your beach bod, but how good do these sandwiches look?? My friends and I were playing the “If you had to eat only one cuisine for the rest of your life, what would it be?” game a few weeks ago, and I said grilled cheeses, which majority ruled invalid because it wasn’t a real category of food. Like hell it isn’t! There’s nothing more comforting than a warm and gooey mess of bread and cheese in my book, and if I could get away with eating it every day without becoming morbidly obese, I totally would – especially with these fun twists! A mac & cheese grilled cheese sandwich = work of evil genius.
A few days ago, Evie tweeted about snacking on grapes covered with lemon/lime drink powder, which intrigued me so much that I started Googling around for more info. Up popped this recipe for Sour Patch Grapes (aka Leprechaun candy), which uses Jello powder instead, and I decided to give it a go. The whole idea sounds bizarre, but the resulting sugar coated grapes are like bits of juicy candy that you just can’t…stop…eating. It may not be the healthiest way to eat a bowl of grapes, but it’s certainly a tasty one!
Sour Patch Grapes
Adapted from Sweet Treats and More
Thoroughly wash a pound of grapes, and dump them into a large Ziploc bag while they’re still wet
Pour in a box of Jello powder (I used melon fusion flavor), and shake shake shake!
When the grapes are fully coated, pour them out into a bowl and refrigerate until the sugar sets into a wonderfully crunchy shell
