The entire country has been immersed in a cupcake bakeshop craze for the past decade or so, but we still have a soft spot for the queen bee of gas station snacks: The Hostess Cupcake.
I am a teeny bit obsessed with the cookies from the most recent issue of EveryDay with Rachael Ray magazine. This recipe is the second of many cookie recipes on my list to make this holiday season. Sweets are taking over my life! Just ask my coworkers. They get my leftovers, and I think they are starting to resent the way I am forcing them to eat sinful treats.
I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair. I know it’s not fair. I know that now you’re craving cinnamon rolls, and cream cheese frosting and chili fries and hot dogs. I am too… and I already ate half of this warm bread.
Hey Everyone!! I must be in an apple phase cause every recipe with apples is appealing to me lately. I had to make these though. I love hot apple cider when the weather starts to get cold so this takes like my two favorite things and puts them together. I've never made cinnamon rolls before, but they were seriously so easy, and so delicious.
Just like “on a stick”, everything gets infinitely cuter when layered inside a mason jar and tied with a simple ribbon or tag . Favors are no exception! So make these delicious fruity pies in mini mason jars (or regular size!)
We ESers like our whiskey combinations and we’re betting you will too. Never mindful of the rules, this week we created a blasphemous bartending nightmare by skipping the shaker for some rotating blades. Yep, everything is headed for the blender including the whiskey. Um, please muffle all outraged screams until you have tried this. Along with the whiskey are some sweet cherries, tart apples and a lime to create a popsicle that will assist you with obtaining your daily fruit serving.
A few weeks ago I was in NYC for literally less than 24 hours and one of the only things I was able to squeeze in other than what I was there for was a visit to Serendipity for one of my favorite treats…..the Frozen Hot Chocolate. It is massive, chocolaty and perfectly ice-y. When I got back home I told the boys all about the treat I had and said I would re-create our own version!
As I mentioned on Friday, I have been doing some experimentation with the beer and chocolate combination. The Guinness-chocolate ice cream that I made totally kicked butt, so I couldn’t wait to see how I liked beer and chocolate in my cake. The answer? I like it, a whole heck of a lot. This was my first time doing Guinness-chocolate cakes, and I was totally optimistic that I would love it, and I was definitely right.
Things are going well at our house. We love being parents. We are a little tired, but we can’t complain. Our little pea let us get six hours of sleep on Saturday night.
