2/3 cup olive oil and vinegar salad dressing (recommended: Newman’s Own)
1 packet (1.06 ounces) herbs marinade mix (recommended: McCormick Grill Mates)
16 ounces fresh mozzarella in water, cut into 1-inch pieces
24 cherry tomatoes
1 red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 sourdough baguette, cut into 24 (1-inch) pieces
10-inch bamboo skewers, soaked in water at least 1 hour prior to grilling

Stir together salad dressing, herb marinade packet, and 1/2 cup water. Set aside. Place cheese and vegetables in a resealable bag and pour in marinade. Seal and marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours. Thread the skewers by alternating vegetables, cheese, and bread. Brush bread with some of the leftover marinade mixture and save the rest for garnish. Set up grill for direct cooking over medium heat. Lightly oil the grilling grates and place the skewers on the grill. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, turning once. Bread should be toasted and cheese softened. Serve right off the grill drizzled with additional marinade.

Cake Batter Rice Krispies

http://gimmesomeoven.com/cake-batter-rice-crispy-treats/ (From How Sweet Eats)

3 Tbsp. butter
1 (10 oz.) bag of mini-marshmallows
1/4 cup yellow cake mix (the dry cake mix, not prepared into a batter!)
6 cups crispy rice cereal
1 (1.75 oz.) container of sprinkles

Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat and add marshmallows. Stir until they begin to melt, adding in (dry) cake mix one spoonful at a time so its combined. Stir in cereal so it is completely coated with marshmallow mixture. Sprinkle in half of the sprinkles and mix. Press into a baking dish (any size will do) and top with remaining sprinkles. Let sit for about 30 minutes before cutting. I find spraying a knife with nonstick spray helps to cut them.

Ali’s Tip: I actually increased the cake batter to 1/3 cup for my recipe to give it a little extra cake batter kick (the 1/4 cup seemed just a little too subtle to me), but add as much in as you like!

***Note: Many readers have asked what to do with the remaining cake mix. If you would like to use it to whip up a batch of cake mix cookies, just measure out 6 oz. of the remaining cake mix, and combine it with 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil, and 1 egg. Stir until mixed. Then form into cookie dough balls, and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.***
