Dulce de Leche Brownies : : Miss in the Kitchen

Dulce de Leche Brownies : : Miss in the Kitchen
Dulce de Leche Brownies At seven o’clock last night I had a chocolate craving. I approach the pantry and see a can of Dulce de Leche and instantly think caramel brownies. I have been wanting to try a new brownie so I did a quick Google search and found these babies. Being seven at night and the fact that I live in the middle of nowhere, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips because that’s what I had. If you have fancy- shmancy chocolate feel free to use it, I am sure it would elevate these already fantastic brownies! If you aren’t familiar with Dulce de Leche it is basically caramel, like caramelized sweetened condensed milk (I can eat it straight out of the can). Dulce de Leche Brownies Adapted from The Sweet Life in Paris (Broadway Books) David Lebovitz Cooking Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8-inch square baking dish with a sheet aluminum foil that covers the bottom up over the sides. Pour half of the batter into baking dish. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes. Enjoy! Miss

Cookies ‘n’ Cream Oreo Fudge Brownies Happy Valentine’s Day, chocolate lovers!! You can do one of two things with this recipe: a) Make these brownies for your sweetie, as a lovely dessert to top off your romantic Valentine’s day dinner. b) Make these brownies for yourself, as a way to celebrate the fact that Valentine’s day sucks. I’ll be going with option B. I’ll try to show some restraint and not eat the entire pan…(y’all know how Oreos are my biggest guilty pleasure). Dijon Chicken Club Sandwiches By the time I get home from work, I often don't feel like cooking a big meal. But if I've done some of the prep work in advance, it becomes really easy. This is pretty much my weekday plan.

The Family Kitchen 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. The results were beyond amazing. Boy-Approved Spiked Pasta (Spaghetti with Vodka Cream Sauce) My boyfriend P has a busy, active job and is often too busy to eat a big lunch, if any lunch at all. It's no surprise then that he comes home hungry at only 5 p.m. For those days especially, I have a list of go-to meals that can be whipped up in no time. And while P's sweet enough to try almost anything I cook, I reserve this list for only the dishes he gets excited about. Chief among them is this fabulous spaghetti alla vodka. P's not much of a foodie.

Homemade Chocolate Syrup Recipe I love it when I can easily make something at home and it turns out to be just as good or better than the more expensive store-bought kind. I’ve been wanting to try some homemade chocolate syrup. The basic recipe is very simple, but there are a few variations of it, so the other day I decided to experiment with them and have a chocolate syrup taste test. Not a shabby way to spend the afternoon! The one I liked the best was from Amy Dacyczyn’s The Complete Tightwad Gazette. ½ cup cocoa powder 1 cup water 2 cups sugar ⅛ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon vanilla

Cookies ‘N Cream Oreo Fudge Brownies Hellooooo, good lookin’! What a way to start the week! :) Last weekend as we were exploring Blue Ridge, GA, we stopped by this charming little bakery. They had all kinds of delicious looking homemade brownies. Oreo brownies, peanut butter brownies, raspberry cream cheese brownies… *groans* Kevin totally had his eye on the Oreo brownies. Beer Battered Onion Rings One day, months ago, after Ben and I were watching a show on the Food Network about fried foods, Ben had asked me to recreate the beer battered onion rings that were featured. Knowing I’m not one to frequently bust out a vat of oil to “waste” on frying, I quickly filed his request in the very back of my mind. No, seriously, the very back shelf of my brain that is probably full of dust and other undesirable recipe requests. Onion rings have never been one of my favorite foods. The only time I’ve ever had them was when someone else ordered them at a restaurant and shared one or two with me. Regardless, when I was planning out my menu for the Oktoberfest Burgers, the dusty old onion ring file jumped to the forefront of my thoughts and I just couldn’t push it out of my mind.

Chocolate Brownie Pudding Chocolate lovers – this one is for you! It’s seriously the most decadent and rich dessert I have ever eaten in my entire life! And man was it good. I mean how can you go wrong with butter, chocolate, Kahlua and ice cream? Recipe for Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake When I noticed how many people are visiting my round-up of 20 Zucchini Recipes I knew it was time to share this fantastic new zucchini recipe called Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake, recommended by my sister Pam. She found the recipe in Penzeys Back to School 2011 Catalog , where it was submitted by Karen Niessing. Pam changed the recipe a little and then I changed it a tiny bit more, and we were both impressed with how this very basic idea of tossing zucchini with a few fresh and dried herbs and cheese and then baking it can produce a dish that's so delicious. I could make an entire meal of this, but it would also be perfect as a zucchini side dish, and Pam told me she ate some of her leftovers for breakfast one day. If you have zucchini from your garden or the farmers market, you must try this!

The Brownie That Will Change Your Life Let me start off by saying that viewer discretion is advised for today’s post. OK now with the story that preludes possibly the greatest brownie I have ever sunk my teeth in thus far in my life. Last Saturday Mrs. Zesty had a baby shower to attend and she was designated for a dessert/sweet treat for the girls. Last week was a bit of a zoo and I think I forgot about prepping this dessert until Friday afternoon at work. After work I did a quick scan for some ideas and came up with a chocolate caramel brownie.
