Aaannnndddd, she’s back! So I did mention something about health and/or diet food in my last post, and while this recipe is the latter, it is most certainly not to be confused with the former. I posted about my rainbow cake here , and it got a lot of traffic on over to my livejournal, and everyone wanted the “recipe.” The cool thing is that if you’re making something so distractingly colourful, people will think it’s delicious no matter what. This presents me with the option to use an old Weight Watchers trick—the one-point cupcake. Except I’m making a cake and I created my own frosting.
There’s a chance you might just hate me for sharing this recipe. That’s a risk I am willing to take. These Oreo Truffles are THAT good. So good you can’t stop eating them, good.
I’ve tried lots of brownie recipes: Boxes, scratch, frosted, plain, nuts, chips, fudge … Each of them has something to like, but depending on my mood I might want a change of pace. Not any more. My wife found this recipe, and it’s perfect. I’m done looking. This is the brownie recipe that I’ll use from now on. Ingredients

Hi guys, I just made a fresh batch of post photo layouts. There are 6 layouts in 2 sizes (600px + 900px) and 2 styles: one with concave rounded corners and another with beveled corners. At the center of each layout is a heart, which can be a hidden layer if you prefer not to show it. You can change the heart’s color, too. I set it to white by default, but you can easily change it with the Color Overlay adjustment layer. I thought the heart would be appropriate for Valentine’s Day!
Jan 12 Rachel Faucett I absolutely love this owl cake by sideways glances . I actually made a version of this cake myself, I’ll upload a few pictures when I get a chance.

December 22nd, 2010 For someone who eats marshmallows as regularly as I do, I’m not sure how I managed to go so long without making them from scratch. It’s safe to assume that most things are improved drastically when made at home (examples 1 , 2 and 3 ), but I didn’t realize how you could improve on something already so perfect. Turns out, you can; especially when you add a little peppermint and some food coloring.
You’ll see Cakes in different occasions. In birthdays, weddings, graduations, christenings or even valentines day celebrations, a cake makes a difference. The celebrations become a lot more special.
Jun 29 Not to sound full of myself, but I’m pretty sure this is the be all, end all of popsicle roundups. There’s a little something for everyone: the foodies, the purists, the ones who prefer frozen yogurt, the ones who prefer a little alcohol, everyone. Tweny-five options to be exact. The post I did last summer on the cold guys was one of DC’s most viewed ever, so I thought you’d all be up for another round – was I right?
Valentine’s Day is finally here. What are your plans for tonight? We’re having dinner in and then heading to the local frozen yogurt shop for their buy one get one free deal.
I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair. I know it’s not fair.
I watched my Grandmother's face when she realized that I hadn't handed her a hard boiled egg but rather a cake baked inside a real egg shell. Her eyes were filled with wonder and I could envision what she must have looked like as a tyke the very first time she saw a red balloon float across the sky or the the trunk of a giant elephant spewing a stream of water. "Crack it on the table," I told her. Eggs were cracked, cupcakes were eaten, and I was perceived as a cupcake Houdini. How to Make Cupcakes in Egg Shells
Ok, these are not pop-tarts exactly, how about just-like-pop-tarts-but-without-the-stuff-you-can’t-spell (or say)? It’s super easy, all you need is a good butter pie dough and delicious jam of your choice. And if you’re one of those who think a great pie is all about a good crust–I am of course one–these pop-tarts are perfect for you. They are filled with just enough delectable jam to punctuate the flavor without obscuring the buttery, flaky goodness of the crust. I’ve been having so much fun making them (and eating them) lately, I thought I’d share a few tricks I picked up along the way with you so your pop-tarts come out perfect every time. Like this one in the picture just below–a “pop-tart” filled with homemade Reine Claude plums and vanilla beans –which I polished off in three seconds flat right in front of Lulu’s at the Octagon in Santa Cruz.

Wicked Good Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Cups. They’re from the book, Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey Treats for Kids by Jill O’Connor and just as good as their name states. Jill sent me and my niece a copy of her book as a little thank you for a post I did inspired by her Cheesecake Pops. We had a hard time deciding which recipe to try first, but we kept coming back to these pudding cups. They were really fun to make and even more fun to eat.
