I LOVE anything that tastes good and is quick and easy.  Tonight, we’re eating tuna wraps (I love wraps.  Tonight we’re just using flour tortillias, but I also like the green spinach tortillias when we make wraps.)

Drain 1 can of your favorite kind of tuna.

Empty the can into a bowl.

Add 2 generous plops of mayo (about 1/2 cup or a little less depending on how much mayo you like.)

Sprinkle pepper around on the tuna, (about 1/8 of a teaspoon)

Add either finely chopped onions, OR onion powder (about 1/8 of a teaspoon)

Mix it all up and put it on your tortillas. (If you prefer, you can chill it in the fridge first and then put it on your tortillias.)

This one takes LESS than 5 minutes!

Last year, I got this recipe from a friend of mine for a super easy and DELICIOUS Fudge.  Grace and I made this and I LOVE IT!  Plus, it’s something very inexpensive that you can take to cookie exchanges and holiday parties.

You will need:

1lb Butter (It does not taste the same with margarine)

1lb (2-8oz boxes) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

2 LBS (2bags) of powdered sugar

1Cup of Hershey’s Cocoa (again, this doesn’t taste as good with other brands)

Here’s what you do:

Butter a large glass pan or a rectangular cake pan and set aside.

In a large pan on medium heat, melt 1LB of Butter and 1LB of Cream Cheese. (I learned that if you melt it on a high heat, it’s TOO HOT to work with, so I had to be patient and wait for it to melt on medium heat.)  You can chop the butter and cream cheese up into smaller chunks so it will melt faster.

Once it’s melted, remove from heat and add 1 bag of powdered sugar and 1c of Hershey’s cocoa, wash your hands or put on your food prep gloves and start kneading it all together by hand, once this is kneaded, add the 2nd bag of powdered sugar and knead together (again, I learned that if you put both bags of powdered sugar in at the same time, it makes a big mess.)

Once it’s kneaded, put it in your buttered pan (or pans depending on how thick you want it to be.)  and press it with your hands to make it all even in the pan.  Put in the fridge for a couple of hours, cut and serve!

This can be made in 15 minutes or less after you’ve made a couple of batches of it.  (It takes a little longer if Grace helps me, but that’s half the fun!)
