Honeyed Pears in Puff Pastry. Poaching fruit is one of my favorite things to do when cold weather arrives.

Honeyed Pears in Puff Pastry

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. Foodbuzz. Top 9 ~ Write With Us: Greens! Kale & Delicata Squash Salad… with Citrus-Maple Vinaigrette Oh My Veggies Delicata, Pomegranate &… Avocado Kale Salad. Funnel Cakes! Yes Please! Cinnamon Sugar Apple Pie Eggrolls.

Is anyone else still holding on to apple season for dear life?

Cinnamon Sugar Apple Pie Eggrolls

I mean really, apples tend to be more of a fall thing but I just can’t get enough of them right now. And when I say that I think it’s fair to disclose that I can’t get enough cinnamon and sugar either. The thing that I’ve also become recently super obsessed with is eggroll wrappers. Those suckers work great for everything and automatically make it suuuuuuuuuuuper fancy. Ham & cheese sandwich? Or in my case, apple pie? Almond-vanilla rice pudding. Can someone explain to me how we can boil some grains, like oatmeal, in milk with a little bit of sugar and mix in some dry fruit and it is called breakfast but when you do it to others, like rice, it is considered dessert?

Recipe for apple crisp wontons. Somewhere, in a file of ideas for future cooking classes, I have a list titled 100 things to make with wonton skins.

Recipe for apple crisp wontons

(Wouldn't that be a fun class?) If these apple crisp wontons aren't on the list already, they will be. Wonton wrappers, inexpensive and versatile, can hold sweet or savory fillings; heat them in soup, steam them in a bamboo steamer, bake them, or deep fry them quickly in a hot wok. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. My family loves my soft peanut butter cookies and my Nutella peanut butter cookies, so I decided to create a chocolate version of this fave.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

That was easy to do by just substituting some of the flour with cocoa powder. Nice and soft and full of chocolate peanut buttery flavor, yum! I love this dough. It’s such an easy recipe and comes together nicely. Mind-Blowing Cake Decorating Tip.

Chocolate. Ridiculously Easy. I mean it.

Ridiculously Easy

Easy. E…..Z…. Peach Crunch Cake. You need some sliced peaches in syrup. Snickerdoodle Muffins. Snickerdoodle Muffins I have been obsessed with Pinterest lately!

Snickerdoodle Muffins

Pinning this and that all while trying not to drool all over my computer. Mini Nutella Fried Pies with Glaze. How to Make Marshmallow Fondant. Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Cookies. I love recipes that make me feel like I can get away with eating something sweet first thing in the morning.

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Cookies

These banana bread cookies do the trick! Combining my own love for banana bread and the addition of chocolate chunks, these cookies are soft and cake like, much like the bread. They are perfect for enjoying with a cup of coffee in the morning, as a afternoon snack or the perfect dessert. They are a great excuse to eat a cookie any time of day. Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows. Christmas Dinner Recipes - Party Ideas for Christmas. Thick, chewy oatmeal raisin cookies. I woke up Sunday morning craving oatmeal raisin cookies something fierce, so I tried to make myself eat oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar in it for breakfast but that didn’t work, and so there was nothing left to do but to bake cookies.

My life is so hard, innit? I have very specific tastes in oatmeal raisin cookies. A crisp edge is always welcome, but the rest of it must be thick and chewy. Just to confuse, this is unlike other oatmeal cookie recipes on this site, the crunchier chocolate chip pecan version and the thick but shattery, salty white chocolate version. Nope, my oatmeal raisin cookies demand their own texture, and one I can’t get from those other recipes. Easter Cupcakes Baked in Real Egg Shells.

I watched my Grandmother’s face when she realized that I hadn’t handed her a hard boiled egg but rather a cake baked inside a real egg shell. Her eyes were filled with wonder and I could envision what she must have looked like as a tyke the very first time she saw a red balloon float across the sky or the the trunk of a giant elephant spewing a stream of water. “Crack it on the table,” I told her. Eggs were cracked, cupcakes were eaten, and I was perceived as a cupcake Houdini. Update 3/19/2012: For the basic instructions on these Easter cupcakes, keep reading. To see another example of them with dyed eggs and cream cheese “yolk” filling, see my latest version of these Easter cupcakes. One Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes For Two. Let’s face it: sometimes we all need a dessert that only makes two servings.

Sometimes we just can’t handle 12 servings. Sometimes we eat them all by ourselves. Sometimes we eat them all by ourselves in two hours. Sometimes we eat them all by ourselves in a matter of minutes. Sometimes it’s the best thing ever. Crazy Domestic: Melted Snowman Cookies. A brownie by any other name… Love brownies. Love their shiny, flaky top that shatters into micro-thin shards that shower onto your fingers as you eat. Love their dark, gooey center. Their “chocolate nirvana” flavor.

Sometimes can’t deal with the bake, wait to cool, cutting into squares messiness and fuss of brownies. Want something I can enjoy within 5 minutes of its exit from the oven. Every time I make these cookies (which, truth be told, is quite often), I think of a former colleague, Ana, who left King Arthur last year in order to be a full-time mom to her 2-year-old twins. The test kitchen bakers loved Ana. Ana still visits occasionally, 2-year-olds in tow. And when she does, she’ll invariably nose out any chocolate, and treat us to her classic reaction: “Perfect! These cookies are basically brownies: flat, round, 2 ½” brownies. Recipe Index.

Nutella Mug Cake. 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.
