Tuna Patty

First off - Happy Valentine's Day!! Today I've got a recipe for a tuna patty that can be eaten plain with ketchup, in a burger, with just pickles on top, or however else floats your boat. I've been testing out my own variations of the tuna patty for years, and finally can settle on one that I LOVE. Really - I wanted to make another one after I finished.. Here's the recipe.

3/4 can albacore tuna
1 egg
5 club crackers (crushed)
1/4 tsp Lawry's seasoning
1/4 tsp lemon pepper

Heat a small/medium sized skillet on medium on the stove.
Mix together all ingredients until you can form a round patty shape with your hands.
Cook on heated pan - flip when the bottom is golden brown. The patty is done when it is firm like a regular burger patty.

( I wished I had a better camera & better photography skills to do this good justice, but I don't :) )


PB & Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats

Okay. MAKE THESE. Make them today. They are so very easy and so very addicting! Thank you Rachael Ray for providing cravers of chocolate and peanut butter such a fantastic recipe. 'Ere go!

3 T. butter
1 - 10 oz bag of marshmallows
1/2 c. peanut butter + 1 1/2 T., divided
6 C. Rice Krispie cereal
1 1/2 C. chocolate chips (I used about 8 small blocks of chocolate almond bark and the texture and taste turned out incredible)
1 1/2 T. peanut butter

DIRECTIONS (straight from the Racheal Ray website)

Lightly grease a 9-inch by 13-inch pan and set aside.

In a large pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir constantly until melted. Remove from heat, add the peanut butter and stir well. Add the cereal and stir until well combined. Carefully press into the pan with wax paper or buttered fingers.

Mix together the chocolate chips and 1 1/2 T. peanut butter and melt in the microwave (intervals of 30 seconds with stirring). Spread the chocolate evenly over the rice krispie's. Let sit until chocolate is set. Cut and serve.
