Posted by Alexandra C. | Thursday August 30, 201227 comments

We all know that food is awesome. But what can make food even more awesome? Little tips and tricks that take a delicious meal to over the top deliciousness. I found 10 simple food combos, recipes and additions that you can make to bring a dish up to the next level of drool worthy. Are you ready? 

#1: Make homemade mac n' cheese with gnocchi

Cheese, chewy pasta and all baked together. Think about it.

#2: Amp up your s'more 

Substitute milk chocolate with white or even peppermint. Add peanut butter or a peanut butter cup. The possibilities are endless!

#3: Add peanut butter to ramen noodles 

Sounds crazy, right? But apparently this trick takes an inexpensive pack of noodles and makes it taste like a million bucks.

#4: Roll ups for easy apps

I like to have a back up of easy, ready to go roll ups around. Add different cheeses and pop in the oven to get appetizers in a few minutes.

#5: Banana Dog 

Banana and peanut butter gets a face lift with a hot dog bun and some jam, also a yummy treat for any little ones!

#6: Explore New Territories with Berries and Chocolate

Chocolate covered strawberries are great but I think that these options might be better. Plus, what could be easier than popping a chocolate chip into a raspberry?

#7: Sour Patch Grapes

Roll grapes in Jell-O powder for a tangy and healthy alternative to a Sour Patch Kid.

#8 Easy Peasy Belgian Waffles 

Spread some crunchy peanut butter and marshmallow fluff onto a waffle, flip it into a sandwich and you have an excellent snacking or dessert option.

#9 Combine Salty with Fruity

It might sound a bit bizarre but salt and fruit is one of my favourite flavour combinations. Next time you slice up a watermelon, sprinkle some salt on it! Or, try some honeydew or cantaloupe melon with prosciutto.

#10 Bake Brie


Bust this out at your next dinner party to impress all your guests! Bake a wheel of brie, serve with honey or jams and bread or crackers.

The banana hot dog made me giggle so hard but how brilliant!!! I'm not sure about the fruity and salty, I mean, I have done the apple and salt thing but I think that will be as far as I go with my salt and fruits!
Great article! I'll be sure to share!!!
