One-ingredient banana ice cream — it's kind of magic, isn't it? Have you ever tried it?

Death By Oreo Cupcakes

A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor.

So, in this recipe there is Oreo's in the cake, in the frosting, and at the bottom is a Oreo surprise. That's right, you put a whole Oreo at the bottom of the cake. Ingredients 1 package Oreo Cookies, regular size 1 package Mini Oreo Cookies, for decoration (optional) 1 package chocolate cake mix (mix according to directions on box) 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), room temperature 3 3/4 cups powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract cupcake liners Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

If you’ve walked the hall of the San Francisco Ferry Building on a Saturday morning, you’ve no doubt seen a little crowd of people standing outside Blue Bottle Coffee Company, patiently waiting for their espressos, their caffe lattes, their macchiatos. And it’s worth the wait. Blue Bottle prides itself on properly pulled espressos that bring out the best in the ground beans.

This is no churn-and-burn assembly line. Luckily, Blue Bottle also does mail order from its home base in Oakland, so those of us not living in the Bay Area (or Brooklyn) can get our fix.

I mean, just yesterday we had a very deep conversation about oil pulling as I was walking through the produce section at Costco. No one gave me weird looks at all… But amongst the thousands of recipes out there using coconut oil, I think I have discovered a new favorite. It began with a craving for biscuits, and a bag of self-rising flour that I needed to use up, and an old 3-ingredient recipe that used to call for shortening. Nowadays, anytime I see shortening, it’s like the recipe is just begging me to try substituting in some coconut oil to see if it works. Did it ever work. :) Read more I’ve always said that I like a good balance of cooking and baking in my life. That recipe is coming on the blog tomorrow. So bookmark this recipe if you ever need it for the future. Blood Orange Creamsicles: Refreshing and Sophisticated.
