Le Kouign Amann menteur vite fait pour quand on n’a pas le temps. J’adore le kouign Amann et j’aimerais en faire souvent mais je ne suis pas une reine de la boulange et même si j’ai déjà publié une recette sur le blog j’ai rarement le courage d’en faire.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Pop Tarts

I use the term pastries lightly; anything that comes packaged to last through Armageddon doesn't quite pass my personal criteria as a true pastry. However, as any red blooded American child could tell you, despite the fact that pop tarts have an expiration date that lasts into the next year, they are delicious. Sinfully. Pop tarts, if you haven't had the privilege of enjoying one for yourself, are filled pastries drizzled with frosting and sprinkles that are served for breakfast. Yes, breakfast. As a child, I was torn between the chocolate fudge and s'mores flavors, constantly changing my opinion over which reigned supreme. La vraie recette des pancakes américains.

Nutella Stuffed Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

This was a tough weekend for me. I felt so uninspired with everything – cooking, blogging, working, running… you name it. And on top of everything else, Jason had to work all weekend so I barely got to spend any time with him. Normally I wouldn’t be so upset about it but he’s leaving for San Francisco in 3 weeks and once he’s back up north, I probably won’t be seeing him for another month. Yeah, having a long-distance relationship is pretty damn tough. But on a good note, these muffins totally got me in my groove again. How can this muffin not brighten up anyone’s day? Cinnamon-sugar topping: YES! And yeah, that pretty much sums it up. So here’s how you make this: Photos du journal - Velvet d'Amour Official Fan Page. James Park.

Caramel Blondies — Better With Sugar. Last week me & the BF went to visit his family, wayyyyyyy in the middle of nowhere.

Alright, his hometown isn't actually in the middle of nowhere, but we did drive through the middle of nowhere to get there. I was kind of afraid the car would break down, the cell phones wouldn't get a signal, and the only person around to save us would be the mysterious man with the hook for a hand. But we made it (despite my imagination) to his lovely hometown, and when we got there his grandparents gave us each a big bag of Hershey Caramel Kisses. Vanilla Blueberry Muffins.

I finally broke down and bought an actual linzer cookie cutter though, so I had to use it. For the past couple weeks, I’ve been finding and bookmarking all the linzer recipes in my cookbooks in preparation for this week (sap). Why did I choose this one? Brownies aux noix de pécan.

Tummy rumbling, Mike and I headed into a bakery. I spied a giant mountain of cream-puff looking pastries and politely pointing, asked for “une, s’il vous plaît.” The nice bakery lady didn’t laugh at my request or my broken French. Instead, in perfect English she explained that they sold the feather light chouquettes by weight. Churros Recipe. Earl Grey Madeleines Recipe. Palmier Recipe.
