Apple Nachos! I have no clue where I originally saw this idea years ago–but in today’s blogging world, apple nachos have become just about as ubiquitous as raw ballz… But, there may still be a few folks remaining who aren’t tuned into all the apple nacho hoopla. If you’ve never tried them, give ’em a whirl! They are ridiculously easy and taste much more awesome than they sound. Plus, my kids LOVE them as a midday snack. Obviously this isn’t a recipe–use your imagination and your fave toppings to make THE perfect apple nachos! I used (to feed 1 1/2 kids and 2 adults): 3 crispy and slightly tart apples (we ♥ honeycrisp! For these, I sliced up some apples thin enough so it would be easy to eat the slice in one or two bites. Then I melted some peanut butter–until it was super runny–and drizzled it all over the apples. Couldn’t get much easier! Share with friends!
The Baked Brownie The famed Baked brownie. Oprah says it’s one of her favorite things. America’s Test Kitchens says its their favorite brownie. has been on my Amazon wish list for what seems like an eternity. There is a great explanation in the book about how the Baked brownie recipe came to be, which is a great read. They have a good bit of height given that they don’t have any leavening agents, so they aren’t thin, gooey and smooshed like some brownies (this is a good thing).

Monkey Bread with Bourbon Crème Anglaise | Apartment Therapy The Kitchn - StumbleUpon It didn't totally blow up my radar, however, until only a few weeks ago. I was celebrating a bachelorette with some of my favorite girlfriends at a too-cool-for-school Atlanta restaurant. We had already overindulged in one too many courses of food, but our waiter gently encouraged us to order the sampler platter of desserts. Never one to say no to sweets, I caved against my (stomach's) better judgement. I couldn't begin to tell you what else was on that giant tray of desserts. I fell hard for monkey bread that night; I've been waiting patiently for the right time to recreate it.

How to Make Macarons Macarons in the oven. [Photograph: Robyn Lee] I'm ashamed to admit that while I have eaten many macarons, I've never made them on my own. Thankfully, plenty of other people much more skilled in the culinary arts than I am have bravely attempted to make macarons in their home kitchens and have shared their results on that massive virtual brain called the Internet. I'm going to list the most promising recipes I found while aggressively sifting through the web and, from those, pool together a list of tips and tricks for optimum macaron creation. All that info follows after the jump. Clement's recipe at A La Cuisine was the most often cited recipe I found while searching through blogs. More Macaron Recipes A Few Tips Sift your ingredients, multiple times if necessary. Use old egg whites. Cooked Italian meringue may be used instead of the uncooked French one. The final macaron batter should have the consistency of magma. Let the macarons rest for a day before you eat them. by Dorie Greenspan.

mangia mondays 3: easy tie-dye cupcakes hey, everyone! welcome to: & i are happy to welcome you to this fun blog hop. keep spreading the word & linking up your recipes & food posts! tie-dye cupcakes with these cupcakes, i just wanted to play with the way they look... so i used a boxed mix & pre-made frosting. after mixing the cake up like normal, divide the batter evenly between 6 bowls. use food coloring to make your tie-dye colors. i went with: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple & kept them on the softer side for a springy rainbow. put a (relatively) small spoonful of each color into each cupcake liner, stacking the colors on top of one another & not swirling. bake as directed. for the frosting: divide between 6 bowls & use the food coloring to make the same colors as the cupcake batter. fit a piping bag with a wilton 2d tip. put a spoonful of each icing in the bag. i went around the side with 4 colors & put the last 2 in the center. pipe to your hearts content! what i love about these cupcakes is that the frosting looks airbrushed...
