Maddy has been on a “fruit roll-ups” kick lately. Not the actual name brand kind that I so vividly remember peeling away from a cellophane wrapper when I was a kid. No, Maddy’s been eating the Gerber toddler kind.
This avocado hummus is delicious. And I know I say that a lot, but I really rilly like this one. It’s a good one! In other related news, why are avocados so expensive? I get that they’re delicious, buttery, fatty (in a healthy way!)
Edit Edited by Glutted, Bob Robertson, Sondra C, Julia Maureen and 14 others Sitting around a fire, possibly a bonfire at the beach at night, or maybe in the woods, or maybe you even have a fire on your driveway in a hubcap, you find yourself appreciating the sight of the flames and the warmth, but you're missing something... it must be roasted marshmallows!

Chocoholics Beware. One spoonful of this Chocolate Mousse and you will be hooked forever. It is what you could call a grown up chocolate pudding. A simple yet elegant dessert. While it uses only a few ingredients, its chocolate flavor is rich and its texture is silky smooth, airy, almost foamy. And foamy is an apt description as "mousse" is French for 'froth' or 'foam'.
After the holidays I have the hardest time falling back into the rhythm of my normal life. As I sit here looking around and the gift boxes, empty toy boxes and those dang twist-tie things ; and don’t even get me started on the holiday decorations that eventually need to be packed away, I’m feeling extremely disorganized and overwhelmed with it all. I have to work the next couple of days and New Year’s weekend at the hospital and I’m wondering when I’ll get to it all. In the same breath, didn’t I just put all this stuff up? I can tell ya with certainty that I’d rather curl up with these muffins, a cup of coffee and watch endless hours of The Cooking Channel than tackle the after math of Christmas.
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. I guess that’s why they call him Mr. Chocolate! These are a chocolate chip cookie of another color, that’s for sure.
There is no need to buy vanilla extract, or most baking extracts for that matter, because a lot of them can be made at home. It may sound complicated and unnecessary to do this, but I can assure you it is much easier than you think. Most of the time making extracts entails steeping the flavoring ingredients in a liquor or sugar. Over time the liquid or sugar is infused with desired flavor and scent of the nut or bean that has been used. Sure, there are still unusual extracts at that I buy from the store.
Ingredients 4 cups strawberries, hulled and chopped 3/4 cup sugar 1 teaspoon lemon zest 1 teaspoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon rum 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise and seeds scraped 1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt Directions A full 24 hours before you make your frozen yogurt, place your ice cream maker insert into the freezer. Add strawberries, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and rum to a bowl and toss. Cover with plastic wrap and let the strawberries macerate at room temperature for 1 hour.
Chocolate candy gifts on Valentine's Day are the best! These filled chocolate hearts are simple and inexpensive to make, but look like you bought them at a fancy candy store. What You'll Need:
All I wanted to give you for Valentine’s Day was some chocolate pudding. My logic was simple: decadent meals and rich desserts are dreamy things but, in my mind, not inherently romantic. More often than not, after such an evening I find myself too full for even a nightcap, quite tired and, while we are being honest, like I need to spend an hour on the treadmill. And I hate the treadmill. But chocolate pudding is none of these things. The perfect recipe–the one I sifted through dozens and dozens to find–would be chocolaty but not overly heavy, indulgent but not too rich.
In the realm of Scalloped Potatoes, this recipe is the winner . . . at least in my book. It’s a Family Favorite. We make these for almost every holiday dinner, and in between.
I have been experimenting with different mug cakes every since I heard about them about a year ago. None of them have been winners. They were either too chewy, too dry, or not sweet enough. Well, I continued experimenting, and thought why not add some decadent Nutella into the mix. I modified the classic mug cake recipe, added Nutella, and a little more milk and oil than I had been using before.
Every child has heard the healthy-eating mantra "You are what you eat." But there may be a closer resemblance between good-for-you grub and your body than you thought. We found 10 foods that mirror the body parts they provide nutrients for—for example, brain-boosting walnuts actually look like a brain.
The following article was written by Ashley Palmer. Finger foods are my favorite kind of food—to eat but not to make. That's because they usually take a bit more work to put together than the full-size versions. Luckily, that's not the case with these delicious bruschetta bites.
