December 16th, 2010 If you’re looking for a healthy holiday treat, look elsewhere! Peanut butter balls (aka buckeyes) are easily my favorite Christmastime dessert. My Mom and I get together to make them around the holidays, and it’s a good thing we only make them once a year.
I put a slightly different version of these on my Easter Menu , but I’ve changed them up a bit. With the help of my strawberry huller – I’m not a gadget gal, but this one is worth having — these are a cinch to prepare. I took these up to school for Teacher Appreciation week and was blushing at the compliments. Do you think they knew how ridiculously easy these are? Cheesecake-Stuffed Strawberries
I love a good donut, especially a homemade one. What I don’t love is the pain associated with deep frying them. It is messy, time consuming and certainly more fattening. These baked Cinnamon Breakfast Bites mimic what I love about donut holes but without all the added stress and calories. They are super scrumptious and I encourage you to try them out yourself and see how long they last in your house!
Even though I've been a busy girl lately, I'm never too busy for a doughnut break! I especially love the mini variety. These are extra light and have a double dose of vanilla goodness.
Poaching fruit is one of my favorite things to do when cold weather arrives. It's so warming to stand over a boiling pot of fragrant spices and lose yourself in thought. When I made these, I couldn't help but daydream as I stirred; if I were a pear... I wouldn't want to spend my days on the shelf of a cold produce department. I'd want to be taken to a warm home and placed in a jacuzzi of honey and spices. I'd want to be wrapped in an extra long puff pastry scarf and baked until golden and toasty.
Today is a very special day. It’s a special day because I’m sharing with you my favorite dessert on earth. Mmm… Crème Brûlée . It’s even fun to say, even if it is a pain in the neck to type. I’ve loved it for a very, very, very long time.
When I tell you this, take me very seriously…..run, don’t walk to your nearest grocery store and make these today! I knew I wanted to make a Nutella treat the other day and when this simple idea came to mind I had no idea how crazy good it would be! The pastry with the gooey disappearing marshmallow and nutella make for a treat that you just must try for yourself! Enjoy! Can you handle this line up?!
This is a delicious crepe I was treated to by my cousin Christopher while in Lebanon. The crepe was filled with all kinds of Nutella chocolate goodness, drizzled with more chocolate, sided with whip cream, banana slices and crushed nuts. The spot was called Moulin D’or and from what I was told, it was a bakery first, restaurant second.
Brickle A few weeks ago, I went to a barbeque. On the table there was plate of what looked to be a chocolate type dish that was crumbled up.
How to Make Caramel Corn for Halloween Homemade caramel corn is a classic Halloween treat. This recipe is great to serve at parties or divide it up into individual Halloween bags and give it away as gifts.
