Well these naughty little treats are well….naughty but oh so necessary. There are a bit like my Brownie Covered Oreo’s from last Christmas but enhanced with layers of peanut butter and a double decker stack of Oreos in each little brownie cake. They are simply prepared in cupcake liners. Hope you enjoy this ultra sweet little cake Ok, I have to brag about this brownie mix from Trader Joes for a second. I know not everyone has a Trader Joes near by, however if you do, get a load of their ready to pour baking mix.
February 21st, 2012 When I first graduated from college, and was living in a dreary little apartment, mac and cheese was one of my few specialties. Granted it was straight from a box, but it was one of those meals that made me feel like I was home. I shared a gussied up truffle version a couple of years back ( here ), and since the Academy Awards are just days away, I thought I’d make it more party-friendly. I followed this recipe and found the bite-sized portions to be even more appealing, and were just as good served hot as they were room temperature. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Posted on Friday, 8th July 2011 by Grace Massa Langlois When I finally decided on Lemon Meringue Tarts for the holiday weekend I knew I would have to offer another choice because not everyone in my family is a fan of citrus desserts. It didn’t take me too long to decide on the other option because everyone in my family loves chocolate. I decided immediately to pair the chocolate with luscious caramel.
Over New Year’s my friend Natalie served me some amazing chocolate truffles. Chocolaty, tangy with just a hint of mint I begged for the recipe the minute I took my first bite. She smiled coyly and asked if I, the foodie, really wanted to know what I was eating. Yes! Of course! She told me they were Oreo truffles.
What happens when you take the classic flavor of red velvet cake, zap it in the microwave in under two minutes, then serve it layered with nutella and cream cheese frosting in a jar? I’d tell you, but since making a batch of such cakes myself, I’ve been living on a golden cloud while a shirtless Fabio feeds me grapes and escargot. Dreamy, people.
I’ve always had a penchant for sunshine in a jar. Doesn’t the very phrase itself, “sunshine in a jar,” roll off your tongue and fill your mouth with magic? While I’ve never yet found myself a sunshine in a jar, I think we may have just concocted it in our kitchen tonight. In this simple recipe, a basic white cake is turned into a slew of bright colors, baked to perfection, then topped with a creamy white frosting.
One of the best grilled appetizers is bacon wrapped jalapeno peppers. This recipe is so easy to make and it only consist of 3 ingredients; fresh jalapenos peppers, cream cheese, and bacon. The jalapeno peppers are first sliced in half then seeded, stuffed with cream cheese, wrapped with bacon and grilled.
Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating. I like eating potatoes with ketchup.
Small Goblets Of Buttered Beere From A 1588 Tudor Recipe This is an authentic Tudor Buttered Beere (Butter Beer) recipe from 1588 and a rich, creamy ale (beer) is called for – but don’t get an ale which is too sweet, as we are adding in sugar as well as egg yolks. The best ales (beer) to buy are traditional ‘real-ales’ (or cask conditioned ales) from a British brewery with a good reputation (see the end of the post for recommendations). Most British ales (traditional beer) of this high quality are now exported world-wide – while more modern beers, such as ‘lager’ are not recommended.
I’m thinking we’re very comfortable together at this point, me and you. You and me. At best, we’re virtual soul mates bonded through food and cooking.
The Portal Two (Portal 2 cocktails) Ingredients: Blue Curacao Vodka Lemonade Cointreau Rum Orangina Small tumblers Directions: “This drink is, of course, designed to resemble the two coloured portals from the excellent sci-fi puzzle game. For the blue version, get a small tumbler and pour in 10ml of Blue Curacao, 10ml of vodka and top up with lemonade.
