May 10, 2011 | Print | E-mail | Filed under bread , nutella There are some days that I just lose my appetite. It might be because of my mood, or that nothing sounds good, or that I’m in a food rut again and need to spice things up a bit. When my appetite comes back though, what I’m inevitably craving is some sort of comfort food.
I thought we were a little overdue for another NUTELLA recipe! What about you? I have been wanting to try a Nutella brownie recipe for a bit now, but it couldn’t be just any brownie, it had to be an oooey gooey over the top slap your momma kinda brownie. And after much drooling ehem contemplation, I think I got it!
I’ve been in a mini-mood lately when it comes to baking and these bite-sized pies met my big craving. They are really, really easy. Let me show ya. Of course, it didn’t hurt that I used ready to roll refrigerated pie crust. It comes two to a box and if you roll each round pie crust a little bit thinner with a rolling pin, you can get 24 mini pumpkin-shaped pie crusts out of them. Make sure you use all the dough scraps and re-roll to maximize quantities.
Well, I survived yesterday. It turns out my throat massage ended up being a scalp massage. At 5:51 AM my little guy came to my bed and said, "Good morning Mommy, Happy Mother's Day (yes, he was shrieking it)!
When I bought the jar of Nutella last weekend I made a vow ( yes I did ) that part of the Nutella will be made into cupcakes. I’ve always planned to do that whenever I buy one but it never gets that far. Darn those nutella sandwiches and occasional spoon licking. Well, I finally made self-frosting nutella cupcakes and golly they were so beautiful and delicious. This self-frosting nutella cupcakes recipe was adapted from Connie of Pinoycook which she got from Baking Bites .
Good Tuesday to you! I had so much fun making these baby pies! For some reason party food seems more fun when it’s miniature right? I don’t know what it is, but I just love it.
For a while now, I’ve been wanting to use muffin pans to make brownies. I found several recipes, but none I could really get excited about. Then, I found this one that features one of my favorite combinations: chocolate and peanut butter. The brownies are prepared in traditional brownie fashion, but scooped into muffin tins like cupcake batter.
If you thought this post is accompanied with pictures taken in very 'low enthusiasm', I have to admit, that you are right! They look like the half hearted attempt at taking pictures which I assure you is the way I took it. Now, the explanation behind it is another story altogether!. I have choco-monster for a friend. And she came home.
Hi everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. Some of you may have gotten a preview of this post Friday morning….I hit the “publish” tab waaaaay too early So, you knew once I tried ice cream inside of cookies that I wasn’t stopping there right?!! These devilish brownies are equally as decadent as those cookies. I’m talking perfectly crisp edges, chewy centers, thick, ultra CHOCOLATY and down right delicious!
Snickerdoodle Bars My poor kids. They’ve been feeling so deprived. Last night after dinner, Sam literally walked back and forth from the pantry to the cupboard to the fridge, aimlessly searching for a dessert. Did I say deprived? Maybe I mean spoiled.
Peanut Butter- S’Mores Turnovers I’m not much of a camper. My husband often takes my son on camping trips, and I happily stay behind and thank the gods for our bug-free house, cozy bed and well-stocked kitchen. I always send them off in comfort… marinate a little meat for them to throw on the grill, pack up some convenience foods and bake a few goodies too. When they return from their camping weekends, I hear mostly about the evenings sitting around the campfire. Story telling, snuggling in blankets, singing songs and roasting marshmallows for S’Mores seem to be recurring favorites.
