Flourless Chocolate Torte #SundaySupper. We have reached the end of the Passover recipe train, with the only fitting way I know how – with a luxurious, rich, incredibly delicious flourless chocolate torte.
My good friend Carla from Chocolate Moosey is hosting #SundaySupper this week and weare bringing together Easter and Passover menus for you! No matter your holiday, #SundaySupper has you covered and I’ll be honest, despite being an “Easter” recipe there are a few that could easily cross over for Passover. Let’s talk Passover desserts and how disappointing they are – after an absolutely fabulous meal here comes dessert, dry bland cake, canned coconut macaroons (you know your family buys these), and chocolate covered matzoh. The only decent thing at the table is going to be the fresh fruit salad and chocolate jelly rings! Matzoh cake meal does not equal good cake! I want you to imagine a giant, moist, light but rich truffle brownie. This cake will change the face of your Passover dessert table forever!

Easy Cheesecake Cupcakes - 101 Cooking For Two. S’more Pizza. I have been making a lot of pizzas lately, so I had some extra pizza dough.
I have been known to make dessert pizza in the past but I wanted to make something new and exciting. So I came up with S’more pizza. It starts out with a pre-baked crust and ends up with perfectly toasted marshmallows on top. One of my best pizzas ever.

Where Food Goes Beyond the Boundary of Hunger: Pixel Cookies: Link from Zelda. I like to challenge myself.
And when I do, I challenge myself to the extreme. I have come across "pixel" cookies a long time ago but I never got around to actually trying it out. "Pixel" cookies are basically shortbread cookie dough, cut/pressed into strips and are painstakingly put together into a log or rectangle which is then sliced into cookies to form an image of a pix-elated picture. I finally got my patience and confidence up after watching a video my brother showed me. So after trying to find an image or character, with intense research (by intense I mean sitting in my bed and typing in "pixel cookies" or "pixel characters" on Google lol), I came across a Link pixel cookie.
If you don't have the time or the patience to make these, you can purchase a made-to-order dozen here at my cookie shop.

November 7, 2010 by bellasbistro This weekend I had my first paying ‘gig’!
I was asked to make treats for my sister’s mother-in-law’s poetry reading and art show. I didn’t have a whole lot of time to cook, with school and all, but really wanted to impress. So, I decided to make Oreo truffles and some candy corn cupcakes. Everything was a big hit – but I think the truffles really got everyone at the art show talking! Oh, if you are curious – the candy corn cupcakes are just your basic white cake mix, divided into two bowls and dyed yellow and orange. INGREDIENTS 1 Package Oreo cookies 1 Can sweetened condensed milk Chocolate for dipping – white, milk, dark – whatever you like.
DIRECTIONS Pulverize Oreos in food processor until they are fine crumbs and no chunks remain. Form into balls – I used a 35mm scoop. Place newly formed balls on baking sheet and place in freezer for a few minutes to set. Remove truffles from freezer and ready two toothpicks. Refrigerate when finished.
