We've seen just about everything dip-dyed over the last year: kitchen linens, tableware , Easter eggs , and now marshmallows! They're ridiculously simple to make and perfect for a party. Kristin of Idlewife in Canada is always up to something splendid, something simple with a big payoff. And that's exactly what these little tasty treats are. Kristin simply mixed a few drops of food coloring with some water, dipped her marshmallows in, then dried on a cooling rack.
Would you believe I live about 45 minutes away from the Guinness World Record’s longest candy counter in the world? Would you believe I don’t go there for the candy? For me, it can be all about the fudge…
Thanksgiving is SO not about chocolate. Chocolate cream pie? Maybe. But chocolate cake? Chocolate chip cookies? Chocolate ice cream?
Of course you all said yes.
We know what you're thinking: a) you love cookie dough, and you always lick the spoon, but b) that doesn't mean you care to eat a whole bowl of it! But wait, wait! Before you dismiss this post, know this: things are not as they appear.
This isn't just a sweet recipe, but it's a fun craft too! Serve these elegant melting spoons with your after-dinner coffee or hot cocoa. They are fun for kids, but beautiful and festive enough for adults.
This recipe was born of desperation. And a full measure of devotion. With a soupçon of despair… Despair at the fact that Girl Scout cookies are only available during a certain window of time each year.
Of my hundreds of cherished cookbooks, my old school community cookbooks rank at the top of the class. (Bonus points if written by a Southern Junior League!) I love reading these retro tomes for entertainment, but they are often the first place I turn for new recipe inspiration, as well. Last week I dusted off a particular favorite— Notably Nashville —for a little late night reading. As I paged through it, I was amazed at the number of recipes that sparked my interest, and thus made a mental goal to start utilizing the books more often. (Because I never seem to have enough cooking projects.)
Do you, or someone you know, have diabetes? Chances of this are high, given that over 28 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed. If you know much about this disease, you know that once you have it, you have to totally readjust your diet. However, contrary to the misconception, that doesn't mean you can't eat desserts, you just need to eat healthier ones! Lucky for you, we've whipped up three deliciously decadent (yet still healthy) and low-sugar desserts for those in your family or friends struggling with diabetes. Each of these desserts may be low sugar, but they aren't lacking in taste!
Ever wonder what happens when you stick an ice cream cone on top of cupcake batter and B-A-K-E it? Some thing magical! And uber cute, and totally perfect for summer.
“It’s not nice to play with your food.” Sure it is! You know how you take leftover bits of pie crust dough, sprinkle them with cinnamon-sugar, and bake up a crisp, buttery/sugary treat? Baker John Homrighausen at the Ranch Bakery in Houston, TX does these scraps one better. Riffing on an idea from a blog he read, Homrighausen cuts pie crust dough in even strips, brushes with butter, sprinkles with cinnamon-sugar, bakes, and serves the “fries” in little french fry bags, just like you’d get at your local fast food joint.
Chocolate again today! In fact, we're making candy bars at the Humble household.
ingredients: Add all to shopping list 36 Oreo cookies, divided 1/2 cup butter (or margarine), divided 4 (8-oz) packages cream cheese, softened 1 cup sugar 1 cup sour cream 1 tsp vanilla 4 eggs 4 squares semi-sweet chocolate (such as Baker's) directions: 1. Heat oven to 325°F.
Update : One reader didn't have a muffin tin, so she baked these in small ovenproof bowls.
Q: Do you have any recipe suggestions for a really healthy granola bar? I like making my own and sometimes I feel like there's too much butter or sugar. Should I throw in chia seeds or some other kind of super healthy ingredient?
