'Cause I've missed you!
You may have noticed I've been on hiatus AGAIN. This has not been a great year financially for Sugar High. For the first time in a long while Ramen and boxed mac & cheese have been my main dishes. My kitchen, while still dirty, has been much cleaner than normal. And my house is so cold this season because I have no reason to turn on the oven. What a sad, sad way for a foodie to spend her holidays.
I do try to fit in an occasional baked treat, or nice homemade dinner when money allows. I have very slowly been saving pictures and recipes here and there so I have something to share with you when the time comes. In the meantime, you can visit me on Facebook. I'll be updating Sugar High's page more often, sharing my favorite recipes and food blogs from around the internet with you, and getting more input from you on what kind of recipes you would like to see on Sugar High.
The new year is almost here, and I know it's going to be a great one! Hang in there, baby :)

It's no secret that potatoes are my favorite food, and sweet potatoes are one of the best! I love the sweet flavor of them, it's like a dessert in a vegetable. I've been dying to make sweet potato fries, and I came across this recipe for a spicy version. Flavored with chili and smoked paprika, these sweet and spicy fries did not disappoint!
If you've never had a homemade Sloppy Joe, you've been missing out! This sloppy joe sauce has chunks of veggies and uses mustard, worcestershire and steak sauce for flavor that is so good it goes far beyond any sauce you will get from a can. This is my go-to recipe for sloppy joes, and soon it will be yours too!
- I always top my sloppy joes with mustard (honey mustard is my favorite). It adds a great flavor I can't get enough of.
Would you believe me if I told you that before I made this jam I had never eaten rhubarb? It's true! Up until now, I've never tried rhubarb. Yet, I have this weird obsession with it. I have dozens of rhubarb recipes locked away, constantly searching for more while I wait impatiently for rhubarb season, only to stare at it longing to bake it into something delicious.
Rather, what I assume would be delicious seeing as how I had no idea what it tasted like.
I also have had a desire to make my own jam. I happened upon this very simple strawberry rhubarb jam that is made.... in the microwave. I thought, 'Microwaveable jam? Hey, I can do that!'. Plus, it's like killing two birds with one stone. So I finally gathered up the courage to buy rhubarb.
This was definitely worth waiting for. I can't believe how simple this jam method is! Mix up your ingredients, pop them in the microwave for several intervals mixing in between each one. There you have it, perfect jam. This is a great method for first time jam makers like myself.
And the taste is amazing! Rhubarb really complimented the sweet strawberries, I love it's tang. I used a little less sugar in my recipe, I didn't want it overly sweet - I wanted the tart rhubarb to really shine. I was so pleased with my first rhubarb experience that I was eating this stuff by the spoonful!
Go HERE for this microwave jam recipe and lots of helpful tips!
* Because this jam isn't preserved, you need to keep it refridgerated and consume it within a couple weeks. I had no problem doing that!
From above this looks like a typical cream pie. It's topped with peanut butter and chocolate peanut butter. Yummy, but nothing too exciting...
But you decide get a better look and realize that it's a light and creamy peanut butter pie atop a layer of rich dark chocolate brownie. Now, it has your full attention!
Then, you take a slice and see there are even more surprises. The rich brownie layer is spotted with bits of peanut butter chips. This pie is also sitting on a crumbly Oreo crust. Not just any Oreo crust, though... it's a Peanut butter Oreo crust.
For a peanut butter/chocolate lover, this isn't just a slice of pie, it's a pure slice of creamy, delicious heaven!
All FILLED with cheese.
Meatballs are good. Turkey meatballs are better. Cheese stuffed turkey meatballs are the best!
Normally we mix ground turkey in with the sauce, but this week (yes, we typically have spaghetti dinner once a week) I had a craving for meatballs. I was looking for a recipe and came upon this one on Picky Palate. Stuffing meatballs with mozzarella? Genius!
These meatballs are so delicious! I'm in love. I should mention this is the second stuffed recipe from Picky Palate that I have fallen for. Once again, Jenny is my hero.
I made 12 big meatballs, and am already out. I already plan on making these again for meatball subs next week. :)
Just when I thought a cookie couldn't get any better than the Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies, I came across these.
The Man and I are big fans of peanut butter, so when I showed him this cookie he told me I absolutely HAD to make them. Fine by me!
I was sure to use peanut butter Oreos to get the most peanut butter flavor. The cookie is so soft and delicious, it's really a great match with the Oreo's chocolate cookie. These cookies were just as sinfully delicious as the chocolate chip cookies. I dare say they are even better!
