But this is one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. Remember how I made dense, fudgy brownies by using a boxed chocolate cake mix? Well, let’s just say that I haven’t been able to stop imagining doing the same with a yellow cake mix ever since. I thought, if this method can get me to actually love chocolate, how insanely good would a cake version be?? So, chocolate-lovers, this isn’t entirely for you.

Make Your Own Ice Cream in Five Minutes : Parentables - StumbleUpon

We used to go pick fresh strawberries and blackberries and then come home and pull out the electric machine and load in the ingredients. Watching the ingredients solidify into a delicious dessert had our eyes glued to the spinning bowl. I keep wanting to do it with my kids, and that old machine is still sitting at my parents house for us to use, but it always seems like such a production to pull it out so I was thrilled when I came across a recipe for how to make individual servings of ice cream using just a few ingredients, zip top bags, and a little man power.

Cheesecake with Whiskey Butter Sauce. Yes, Really. & Buns In My Oven

With whiskey? And butter? And…sauce? Oh my heavens, YES. My husband’s most favorite food in all the land is cheesecake. My husband likes his cheesecake with peanut butter and chocolate drizzled on top, but this time I decided to live a little and change it up with this whiskey butter sauce.

I’ve never liked chocolate chip cookies.

Go ahead and throw tomatoes at me if you’d like, but I don’t like ’em. They’re just a plain old cookie, after all, with a few studs of chocolate chips in them. They’re nothing special to me, unless you get some cookie dough-action before it meets its fate in the oven. Now you’re talkin’. I’d much rather drown my sorrows in a bowl of cookie dough than nibble a dozen “cookies” dipped in milk. Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread - StumbleUpon. How do you make bread even better?

Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread - StumbleUpon

You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!) Or to eat during a football game. Or, make it for dinner and serve with a salad. This bread takes a little bit of time to prepare, but in about half an hour I had filled my bundt pan with little dough balls, each with a piece of pepperoni and cheese stuffed within it.

Cheesecake stuffed strawberries….how have I not made these before?! I’m serious. They are amazing! Making up the filling was a breeze too. Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. King Arthur Flour – Baking Banter - StumbleUpon. Love brownies. Love their shiny, flaky top that shatters into micro-thin shards that shower onto your fingers as you eat. Love their dark, gooey center. Their “chocolate nirvana” flavor. Sometimes can’t deal with the bake, wait to cool, cutting into squares messiness and fuss of brownies. Want something I can enjoy within 5 minutes of its exit from the oven.

Every time I make these cookies (which, truth be told, is quite often), I think of a former colleague, Ana, who left King Arthur last year in order to be a full-time mom to her 2-year-old twins. The test kitchen bakers loved Ana. Ana still visits occasionally, 2-year-olds in tow. And when she does, she’ll invariably nose out any chocolate, and treat us to her classic reaction: “Perfect!

Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. For the cake portion, I chose a One Bowl Chocolate Cupcake recipe because 1. it's quick 2. it is easy, and 3. it fits my prerequisite for a light ending on date night. Sugarcrafter - StumbleUpon.
