March 30, 2009 Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows by IsaChandra First off, I caved and joined twitter.
If you haven't — well, it's a holiday weekend, and what better time to try something new? If you have already tried banana ice cream, and would like to switch it up a bit, then here are five twists on the classic — just to sweeten the deal. Peanut Butter & Honey Banana Ice Cream
As a mother, and as someone who has an amazing mother, I feel it is my responsibility to tell you that Mother’s Day is going to be here in a little over one short month. That gives you about 5 weeks or so to find the perfect gift for the person who, in addition to one million other things, may have spent her birthday in 20 hours of labor, thereby missing going out to eat for her birthday dinner at a swanky restaurant. And okay, Southern daughter, you ARE the best birthday present I ever have or will get, but there’s still that 20 hours of labor thing. And so for all of you looking (as I am sure the Southern daughter is doing Right This Minute) for the perfect unusual Mother’s Day gift, I am here to help! Continue Reading …
They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried. 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.
Strawberry Banana Popsicles….With a twist! « Lost Garden This is a post originally posted to FionasFlavours.wordpress.com, Lost Garden’s old site. With summer just around the corner, and weather starting warm up, I foresee a lot of popsicle recipes being posted. This popsicle is healthy enough that you can eat it for breakfast, and tasty enough to eat for dessert! Not to mention the colours are wonderful and it has also been confirmed by my sixteen-year-old brother, you cannot taste the spinach :)
It’s no secret that Seattle is a coffee town, so there’s only a little shame in the fact that my coffee of choice actually comes from the Bay Area. 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.
So, my mom just bought her first jar of coconut oil this month, and I have had a blast (a little too enthusiastically) explaining the hundreds of ways that you can use it. 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. creamy lemon popsicles
Blood Orange Creamsicles: Refreshing and Sophisticated Orange juice and dairy products don’t sound like a dream pairing, but the success of the Creamsicle and Dreamsicle proves otherwise. Also, I think Orange Julius might involve dairy, too (but I haven’t lived near an Orange Julius since I was six and my memories from that time in my life aren’t always totally reliable). If regular old oranges go well with frozen dairy desserts, blood oranges, with their sweeter flavor and notes of raspberry, are even better. These blood orange ice pops pair blood orange with yogurt for a sweet, smooth, and refreshing treat perfect for a hot day.
