Matcha and Strawberry Rice Krispy Treats (Pops or Layers): Almost 1,000,000

To everyone has gotten me here


It’s crazy to think about, crazy to imagine, crazy to even believe, but my blog has had almost 1,000,000 visitors. Now, the number is a little bit misleading, because it’s not unique visitors, meaning, if you visit my blog today, and then close down and shut down your computer, and then reboot and visit it again tomorrow – you’ve visited twice.  By the same token, it isn’t the same as impressions, (which is how many times links on my blog are read by one person) but I think 1,000,000 visitors is some sort of a milestone.Friend SH and I have been discussing what I’ll do when I hit 1 million.  I’ll definitely do some sort of giveaway, this I know.  SH wants me to make Tshirts and have people buy them saying something cute and funny about 1 million.  Not sure what it would say but it could be interesting.  (anyone have any brilliant ideas….and would anyone buy a tshirt?)

But in addition, what I want to do is celebrate with those who helped me get to this place of 1 million.  I’ve been blessed with many close friends who have really pushed the blog and me to become what it is now.  I think I want to have a dinner, with all those who have helped me, and just eat and have fun together.  There is the woman, SPK, the original ajumah who screeched at me over the phone and told me to give her a “week of menus” over email.    There is YKK, who was the first person who suggested that writing a blog would mean that I might actually make some money on the menus.  (I make about $100 a month now.)  There is HKL, who started actually COOKING so many of the dishes, and then would tell people that it was from my blog.   There is HYK, who basically brought my blog to an entire church and converted them all.  JY consistently made my recipes WELL and then would feed others with it, also promoting my blog.  There is my pseudo publicist, CJR, who forever brings up my name or the name of my blog, any time the conversation turns to food.  (GO TEXAS).  JEL has inspired and cooked with me so many different things and without her I’d have only a fraction of the recipes I do now.  Friend SH has been my faithful taste tester, subjecting herself eagerly and willingly at the foot of whims and desires, eating whatever strange concoction I have stirred up.  SB eagerly offers to hurt any mean critics of my recipes.  There is Husband who fights battles for me on the blog, continually encourages me to write, and also criticizes dishes both with harshness and love, in an effort to continually elevate my game.  I know that there are many others, but these people have been very instrumental in keeping my blog going and continually encouraging me.

So friends and family – anyone in the mood for a dinner at my house?  You’ll get a free tshirt!

In my mind, the party will be fun and hysterical, with people laughing like crazy.  There will be good food and a tray of these Matcha Strawberry Pops, with everyone eating one and waving a stick around madly.  I want to laugh with these people, rejoice and thank them for all of their support and love for me and helping me get to 1 million, a milestone I never could have ever imagined, when I was getting about 10 hits a day.  I’m not sure how I got to where I am, but I do know that I couldn’t have gotten here without all of those people.

Eat up friends and family.  I want to get down and party with all of you!

Matcha and Strawberry Rice Krispy Treats (Pops or Layered)
adapted from the “Original Rice Krispies” recipe
Makes about 40 golf ball sized pops o r30 squares

Make at the same time – one batch of Strawberry and one batch of Matcha.

Strawberry Rice Krispies
Ingredients
3 tablespoons butter
40 regular marshmallows or 4 cups mini marshmallows
1 bag (1.2 oz) freeze dried strawberries or blueberries, pulverized in a mini food processor (Trader Joe’s, Target, or Whole Foods)
6 cups rice krispies (I actually prefer the Trader Joe’s Rice Crispies – but the Kellogg’s original are good as well)

Method
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Add pulverized strawberries or blueberries. Mix quickly. Remove from heat.
Add rice krispies. Stir until well coated.

Matcha Rice Krispies
Ingredients
3 tablespoons butter
40 regular marshmallows or 4 cups mini marshmallows
1 tablespoons green tea/matcha powder (higher quality more intense green)
6 cups rice krispies (I actually prefer the Trader Joe’s Rice Crispies – but the Kellogg’s original are good as well)

40 lollipop sticks

Method
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Add matcha OR espresso and cocoa. Mix quickly. Remove from heat.
Add rice krispies. Stir until well coated.

Bringing it together
Once both have been made, working quickly, take a little from the Matcha and a little bit from the strawberry and mold them together into a ball. Poke a lollipop stick in and mold around. Set aside to cool. Repeat as necessary.

ALTERNATIVELY
Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press matcha mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. After the matcha has been pressed into the pan, spread the strawberry mixture on top. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.
