Tzatziki - Cucumber Yogurt Dip Cool and creamy, this tangy cucumber dip flavored with garlic is the perfect compliment to grilled meats and vegetables. It's served on the side with warm pita bread triangles for dipping, and is also used as a condiment for souvlaki.

I had planned to film a short video showing you how to make a pallet garden, but the weather didn’t cooperate. I was stapling the landscape fabric onto the pallet when it started drizzling and got really windy. That’s the bad news. Butterbeer Cake March 18, 2011 | Print | E-mail | Filed under cake This year for my sister’s birthday celebration, I was worried that my cake wouldn’t live up to last year’s puffle cake. Every idea I came up with just didn’t seem good enough. Then, I thought back to when she visited us during her winter break, and I immediately knew that I had to make something related to Harry Potter. You see, until then, I had somehow managed not to read a single one of the books or see a single one of the movies. But my sister LOVES them, and when she found out that I had been previously isolated from the Harry Potter world, a movie marathon went on our list of things to do…and I have to say, I really enjoyed them!

Portuguese Fry Bread Recipe This is very similar to a yeasted fry bread. It uses baking powder for leavening instead of yeast. It is best served hot and we think with syrup or jam. Ingredients 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 3/4 cup milk Slutty Brownies Now I don’t want to over sell this, so I’m going to be conservative and simply say, that these are… The Best Brownies In The WORLD. I know, big statement. They’re called Slutty Brownies because they’re oh so easy, and more than a little bit filthy. They’re best served warm from the oven, with good quality vanilla ice cream (devastatingly I didn’t have any in the freezer this time, so I guess I’ll just have to make them again). They take about 45mins to make, including baking time.

Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes This recipe is for my mom. She love pancakes and considers them a breakfast treat. She would often make pancakes on the weekends while my brother and I were growing up and always took the extra time to spell out our names (7 pancakes – score!). Inspired Recipe: Cardamom Creme Brulee - PAPER/PLATES There are few things I find as satisfying as the crack of a creme brulee. That sharp snap means a lot of things. On the light side, it means you’re about to delve into a pot of sugary, creamy, eggy goodness, or that your next few minutes will be spent savoring shards of burnt sugar and creamy custard. Frozen Yogurt-Covered Blueberry Bites! I know….I know….I admit it…I definitely have a frozen yogurt problem. :-) Every time I see a new way to freeze and eat yogurt…I completely lose my ability to think rationally! I become a one track mind, blinders-wearing, woman on a mission until I have appeased my curiosity/craving for this new treat! So to those of you who aren’t really big fans of yogurt, frozen or otherwise, I apologize. Let me know what I can do to make it up to you. :-) I have to thank Fluffimama from Adventures of a Fluffimama for these mouth-watering, refreshing, creamy, sweet, tart, icy, heavenly bites!

Cinco de Mayo piñata cookies Video how-to: Pinata Cookies Ingredients: 1 cup sugar1 cup powdered sugar1 cup butter1 cup vegetable oil2 eggs1 teaspoon cream of tartar1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon almond extract1 teaspoon baking soda5 cups flour1 tablespoon vanillaMini M&M candies1/2 cup powdered sugar (frosting)2 teaspoons milk (frosting) Buck Eyes One of KD’s Christmas traditions is making candies with her grandmother, ED and sister, AG. ED, who will be 92 years old this January, loves to cook. For the holidays, she usually makes a few types of fudge, including chocolate, peanut butter and penuchi, as well as these “Buck Eyes”, also referred to as “Buffalo Balls” by some family members. She starts by combining a jar of peanut butter with a cup of crushed graham crackers (not vanilla wafers as stated in the recipe), 1 lb. confectioner’s sugar, two sticks of room temperature butter and a cup of walnuts, roughly chopped. As Alton Brown and KD’s grandmother agree, your hands are the best tools for the job.
