I love to draw . I also love Chocolate. So the other day I decided to combine the two. “Chocolate and drawing? This should be interesting”, I thought.
A creamy macaroni and cheese recipe that will satisfy both young and old made with Kerrygold cheese and butter from grass-fed cows. This mac and cheese reheats beautifully the next day with just a bit of milk or cream stirred in. Ole pointed out a few weeks ago that our children were growing up with a different food experience than either one of us had. Things like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, mac and cheese lunches and daily desserts are not the norm over here.
March 23, 2011 by allison n Raise your hand if you enjoy a warm slice chunk of quick bread in the morning or as a snack? Maybe it’s banana nut bread, blueberry bread, cinnamon swirl bread or pumpkin chocolate chip bread.
I once made the driest pancake in the world. I can see you sitting at home, staring at your computer screen, and scoffing at my bold statement. Driest pancake in the world? Yeah, right.
Marijuana French toast? Yep, you read that right, and there’s no tastier way to completely ruin your early-morning motivation. (source: Dee Adams ) Ingredients: 1 French baguette 1 ½ tbsp. butter 3 tbsp. cannabutter 4 eggs 1 cup milk ¼ cup sugar 3 tbsp. maple syrup 1 tsp. vanilla extract ½ tsp. salt powdered sugar Directions:
Eggs in a basket was the first meal I ever cooked. I was in 5th grade, and it was a Sunday morning at my best friend's house after a sleepover. We woke up hungry, and for some reason his parents weren't home. This confused me--my parents would never do that--but more important than confusion was the fact that I was terribly hungry, and I didn't see how that problem was going to be solved, since his house never had any cereal in it. "We'll make eggs in a basket," my friend said, pulling out a loaf of bread, a jug of oil, and a carton of eggs. You mean, we'll be cooking?
Easy to make soup, that is full of deliciousness and light as a summer breeze.

Yeah, that’s right. I made homemade Samoas. OK, so these are a bit more time-consuming to make than your average cookies (there are a few assembly-related steps), but they are so worth it. Because Girl Scouts don’t come along nearly often enough. And – no joke – they taste even better than the originals.
The original and unique Cinnamon Roll Pancake recipe created by Robin Sue! M y little Deven loves pancakes and wants me to make them all the time, but I don’t often enough. Late last night my friend had spotted this Cinnamon Bun Pancake Recipe from the blogisphere and posted it on her Facebook status suggesting for her daughter to make them. Wow, Cinnamon Bun Pancakes, that would be a winner in my house too. So I went to bed with pancakes dancing in my head. I dreamed up ways to make this pancake recipe look and taste more like a cinnamon roll.
The title says "cake" but I really feel that "bread" better describes what this is. Sweet yeasty dough cut and slathered with butter and lemon infused sugar is baked and then spread with lemon cream cheese icing. Once its iced you can just peel the slices off, no need to cut (who has time to find a knife anyways??)
Grilling goes hand in hand with Memorial Day celebrations. Burgers and Hot Dogs are the normal go to but sometimes you want something a little different. This Memorial Day Weekend why not try grilled kebabs! Who doesn’t like food on a stick, I mean really.
File this under the Onion Soup Mix Recipe category, though there is no Lipton onion soup mix in site. I may even serve these at my next dinner party, they were that good! While babysitting for my 6 year old picky eater niece, I had to come up with a good lunch that would be fun for the two of us to make together.
Steak au Poivre is one of those gorgeous meals that fills the house, is showy to make in front of guests and makes you want to curl into the couch after dinner, completely content and satisfied. Tenderloin filets are pan fried and then added to a rich, creamy pepper sauce. Sometimes you need a showstopper. Maybe you are trying to impress a date with your cooking skills, maybe you need to show up some food snobs at your next dinner party, or maybe you’re just having an old friend over. Recently for us, it was the latter. Our good friend Joel hadn’t been over in a while so we thought we’d wow him with my new favorite way to have a steak (that doesn’t require a grill).
To make these ‘chips’ sliced zucchini is dredged in milk and coated with a seasoned Parmesan and bread crumb mixture then oven-fried to a lovely shade of golden brown.
Ah, it's picnic time of year again: an excuse, for the lazy ("spontaneous") among us to empty our wallets on the counters of fancy delicatessens in order to furnish the impromptu "al fresco feasts" the media demands of us. (Somehow, it's easier to hand over a banknote for a couple of sausage rolls when the sun's shining.) While I'm a sucker for luminous green olives and pungent cheeses worth more than my flat, I can't muster any sort of excitement for a supermarket quiche, so sadly damp and flabby in its foil tray.
