Easy Garlic Buns

This recipe is super easy, and makes a great compliment to a spaghetti or pizza dinner, or, really, any dinner at all! :3

You need:
Hamburger buns
(notes: Hot dog buns can be substituted, for a slight variation; if you are making these for a fancier/nicer/more than just a snack side/meal, I recommend using the bottoms of the buns because they taste a bit nicer, but both sides can be used.)
Olive Oil
Garlic powder OR 1 garlic bulb
Optional: Spices and/or cheese

1. Split buns into halves, and place them face up on a cookie sheet.
2. Pour oil onto a small plate/bowl, and brush oil over buns with pastry brush.
Note: If you are using garlic powder, skip the next two steps.
3. Crush garlic cloves in a garlic press OR smash with flat side of knife blade
4. Sprinkle crushed garlic and juice over buns
5. (Only if you used powder) Sprinkle garlic powder over buns
6. If you used them, sprinkle spices and cheese over buns!
7. Broil in a toaster oven or oven until edges are golden brown. (May need to rotate buns

Enjoy your buns!

Have fun nomming!

White chocolate pretzel Ghosts


I know Halloween was couple of days ago, but it does not mean you cant have a delicious Halloween snack! :)


~Large Pretzel Sticks
~A bag or bar of white chocolate
~Mini milk chocolate chips
~Microwave safe bowl
~Tin foil wrap


Melt your chocolate in the microwave or stove. Once completely melted, dip your pretzels a little over half way into the chocolate. While the chocolate is still hot on the pretzels, add eyes and mouths of your ghosts out of the mini chips. Place in the fridge for about a hour or until completely hard. Enjoy your spooky and tasty snack!

Honey Spoons

This is a super easy and (sort of) fast snack to make!



~Plastic spoons

1) Pour honey on the spoon, but not too much.
2) Balance the spoon in a freezer so that the honey does not spill. Place the napkin underneath so that if it does spill, it will go onto the napkin.
3) Leave in the freezer for around 6 hours, or more.

Enjoy your simple and delicious snack!

Cold honey is really good. :)

Chicken Quesadillas

Okay, first of all, quesadilla is said as case-a-dia. Not quesadilla. Just wanted to let you all know that :P

  • One or two tortillas, depending on how big you want the quesadilla.
  • Cheese
  • Grilled Chicken
  • Microwave or Stove
Put the cheese and chicken onto the tortilla, and microwave for 40 seconds. Yes, 40 seconds sounds a little weird but 30 won't melt the cheese and 1 minute is too long.
As for the stove, you can put the tortillas on there to heat them up first, then it will melt the cheese and chicken (hopfully)

Finished product:

Please note.. they don't really turn out this perfect looking. But they TASTE deeeellliicciiousss :D

Autumn Fruit Compot

Hello! This is SilverDawn, here with another of my inventions.

*This recipe must be made with the supervision of a grown-up at all times.*


A cup of blackberries

Two pears

Two apples

A spoonful of honey



A drop of water

Note: this is one of those recipes when you can alter the ingredients for what you have in your kitchen. E.g. other nuts would work instead of walnuts and hazelnuts, and the honey isn't a necessity, and you could do four apples instead of two and two pears.


  • Cut the pears and apples into little pieces. 
  • Cut the nuts into quarters.
  • Put two centimetres deep water into a saucepan. 
  • Put on a low heat and add the fruit, nuts, and honey. 
  • Keep stirring constantly until it turns into a thick fruit stew.
  • Serve warm, with yoghurt. 
Enjoy! :D

The name of this is completely ironic, as shortbread can be any shape or size you like and is a sort of biscuit, not bread!

When I was small, the meaning of the word "biscuit" was basically "shortbread". When we had a biscuit (which was rarely, when I was small), it was shortbread. Now, we don't have shortbread that much as it's hard to find in France. But, it is easy to make!


  • A cup of butter at room temperature
  • Three quarters a cup of sugar
  • Half a cup of sifted all-purpose flour


Mix all the ingredients together. Put in a dish for baking. Prick all over with a fork. Ask a grown-up to put it in the oven. 35 minutes later, take it out of the oven. Don't burn yourself!
And you're done!

Hiya everyone!

My name is Erika, I am the newest Contributor/Author to the Best of Tasty Recipes! I'm so excited to share all I know about recipes! I hope some of you learn something new, and, maybe even try too make my recipes! Here is just a couple facts about me so you can get to know me better.

Alright!  Now that you know a bit about me, lets get cooking! This is a recipe that is easy, fast, and does not require boiling or a oven!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls


1 Cup of Powdered Sugar
Half a cup of Peanut Butter
3 Tablespoons (tbsp.) of Butter
1 Bar of Chocolate (Sweet or Semi-Sweet)


Medium Bowl
Large Cooking Sheet
Wax Paper
Large Spoon (Wooden works best)


1. Mix the Peanut Butter and Butter into the medium bowl. Make sure the butter is mixed well and there is no big chunks. Gradually add the Powdered Sugar to the mix. Mix well.

2. Cover the Large Cooking Sheet with some Wax Paper, you do not have to cover the whole pan, as long as the Peanut Butter Balls can fit on it. Make your Peanut Butter mixture into small balls, bite size is the best way to do it. Line them up on the Cooking Sheet with the Wax Paper and let them sit for about 10 minutes.

3. Once the ten minutes is over, check to see if the Peanut Butter Balls are a little bit hard. If not, wait another ten minutes and repeat, if they are continue. Place the chocolate bar in a large bowl. (The one we just used works.) Heat it in the microwave for 1 minute or until melted. (Depending on the microwave.)  Take the chocolate out and stir well. Grab your Wooden Spoon.

4. Put a Peanut Butter Balls one at a time in the Wooden Spoon and roll them around until it is completely covered in chocolate. Place them back on the Cooking Sheet when each one is done. Then, place them in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Once the chocolate is hard, take them out and enjoy!
