Soooooo… you know that episode of Sex and the City where Miranda has to dump dish soap on top of chocolate cake just so she will stop eating it?? Uh. Yeeeeeah.
Pie pops – a whimsical twist on a regular pie. They are tiny, they are cute, and they taste just like a bite of a nice pie. I love desserts like these. Inspired by a lovely lady called Bakerella , I knew I needed to get these pies into my life as soon as possible. Some things just need to be done immediately.
Would you like to know what I’ve been doing for the past two hours? Sitting in the kitchen and staring at the Mini Apple Pies I’ve just made. I LOVE the way they look… so cute, adorable and so much fun to make. And I haven’t even started talking about the way they taste – it’s left me speechless… up till now… Just try making them – your family will love you and your kids will surely be awed and remember them for quite some time. These are the ingredients:
At times like this when things are so busy and crazy I need to take a step back and think about how lucky and grateful I am for such an awesome business partner and friend..I believe you all know her…her name is Teri Lyn Fisher (or TEWI!!), my blog buddy plus much much more. She’s weird, quirky, fun, stressful (ha!)

By Lauren, on July 20th, 2012 I know, I know… it seems as though I’ve been posting sweet recipe after sweet recipe (with a little something cheesy thrown in); but you see, after what seemed like a long time during which sweets were unappealing during my first trimester, (what can I say, pregnancy does some strange things to your body!)
I am so in love with these darn chocolate lava cookies! What is it about a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie stuffed with decadent, rich, melted chocolate that makes it so irresistible?? Especially when topped with vanilla ice cream. These are one of Kev’s favorite homemade treats, and he usually asks me to make them at least once a week. They are so simple to whip up, and such a treat! Let’s make some right now :)
Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life.
Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies
I was telling a friend about my 1-2-3 Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake and kept thinking there had to be equally easy and delicious alternatives. I had some cream cheese and sour cream in the refrigerator and played around with a microwave cheesecake. The first time I overcooked it, but the second time was a charm.
I love cheesecake, and I have a super easy Cherry Cheesecake recipe to share for a delicious dessert. In my not so humble opinion, it’s the best cheese recipe ever and very easy to do! Ingredients: 16 ounces cream cheese 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 tsp vanilla 2 eggs 1 graham cracker crust (organic) 1 can organic cherries Directions: - Preheat oven at 325 degrees. - Beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla together until well-blended. Add two eggs and mix well. - Pour mixture into crust, and bake at 325 for 55 minutes (or until the center feels almost set). - Take cheesecake out of oven and let cool. - Add cherry topping with syrup and refrigerate cheesecake for at least four hours before serving.
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Can I just say that I have died and gone to heaven. Cheesecake stuffed strawberries….how have I not made these before?! I’m serious.
Smooth, creamy, decadent cheesecake studded with sweet morsels of cookie dough and bursts of mini chocolate chips? All atop a chocolatey, buttery crust? Garnished with sweetened whipped cream and more chocolate chips? Oh baby, sign me up for a cookie dough cheesecake IV.
Being that I am on a major health kick, I love to incorporate foods that are already in my home and make delicious snacks for myself any my family. Pudding and yogurt happen to be quick and delicious snacks I eat between meals so I thought, why not make a protein packed banana pudding. This is an easy no bake banana pudding recipe which is nutritious and perfect for an after workout snack or as a healthy snack any time of day.
I know, I’ve made a few pies lately . But see how these are different? Look at how adorable these are! I mean, come on. Could you resist?
