Make-Ahead Muffin Melts

Make-Ahead Muffin Melts
This is another recipe from my mother’s recipe collection. It’s a make-ahead concoction meant to be spread on English muffins and broiled. And it’s just…it’s just… It’s divine. And here’s what you need. Hard boiled eggs, shredded cheddar, fried bacon, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, and Worcestershire. Sorry about the excessive bokeh. Start by peeling all the eggs… Then give ‘em a rough chop. Throw the bacon on a cutting board, trying not to eat it all in the process… Then chop it up into bits…trying not to eat it all in the process. Throw the eggs in a bowl… Then throw in the shredded cheddar. I’ve been grating cheese in my food processor lately and I have to say, I’ve never been happier in my life. Then comes the bacon and a cup of mayo. Now hear this! A good, heaping tablespoon of Dijon. Do not skip this ingredient or your life will spiral downward into a series of unfortunate events. I’m not even kidding. Next comes some garlic powder. You think I’m kidding, but I’m not. *Burp* Sorry.

Snickerdoodle Muffins Snickerdoodle Muffins I have been obsessed with Pinterest lately! Pinning this and that all while trying not to drool all over my computer. While I like pinning lots of different things, as you can imagine, I love pinning recipes. A picture of snickerdoodle muffins kept popping up all over my Pinterest page just begging me to make them. The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY! I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade.

The Infamous Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies - StumbleUpon Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life.

Oreo Cookies-Recipe Oreo-Oreo Recipes-Cheese Cupcakes-Oreo Cheesecakes Posted by Grace Massa Langlois on Wednesday, 21st July 2010 I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like Oreo cookies or Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes. Who could resist cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies? Not Me! Especially the double-stuffed Oreo cookie, it’s one of the best cookies for dunking into a cold glass of milk. I went out yesterday to do my weekly shop, came home, and before I was able to bring in the first grocery bag Matt was hunting for the cookies and cream ice cream.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Cups Soooooo… you know that episode of Sex and the City where Miranda has to dump dish soap on top of chocolate cake just so she will stop eating it?? Uh. Yeeeeeah. These are like… of that caliber. Cookies and Cream Cheesecake My husband has always been a big fan of cookies and cream ice cream and cheesecake, and I’ve always been a big fan of making him food that he loves. It’s only taken me nine years of marriage to come up with the idea of combining his favorite ice cream with his favorite dessert. I was both pleasantly surprised and quite dismayed to realize that cookies and cream cheesecake is quite possibly the best dessert out there. Pleasantly surprised because I’m normally not a fan of cookies and cream unless it’s just a plain ol’ Oreo and dismayed because I couldn’t stop sneaking into the kitchen to take just one more bite.

Cruft: Lasagna Cupcakes - StumbleUpon When Intelligentsia Coffee opened in Pasadena recently, I was intrigued the lasagna cupcakes they served. The cupcakes are made by Heirloom LA, a catering business. About the size of a muffin, a single lasagna cupcake was a delicious meal. After seeing how much my daughter enjoyed them (she ate my entire cupcake and I had to order a second one), I decided I had to try making them at home.
