Cheesecake-stuffed strawberries

Cheesecake-stuffed strawberries
I put a slightly different version of these on my Easter Menu, but I’ve changed them up a bit. With the help of my strawberry huller – I’m not a gadget gal, but this one is worth having — these are a cinch to prepare. I took these up to school for Teacher Appreciation week and was blushing at the compliments. Do you think they knew how ridiculously easy these are? Cheesecake-Stuffed Strawberries 24 large strawberries, hulls removed 12 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar (add gradually, to taste) 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs Place cream cheese in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds, or until soft. Use a sharp knife to make a hole in the center of each strawberry (going as deep as you can without hitting bottom). Spoon or pipe the filling into each hole.

Scrumptious Baked Cinnamon Breakfast Bites I love a good donut, especially a homemade one. What I don’t love is the pain associated with deep frying them. It is messy, time consuming and certainly more fattening. These baked Cinnamon Breakfast Bites mimic what I love about donut holes but without all the added stress and calories. Banana Nut Monkey Bread I think the combination of bananas, nuts, cinnamon and sugar are just perfect. Especially in the morning hours. That’s the sort of thing I like to think about as I’m falling asleep the night before… “… tomorrow morning. Banana.

DIY: Make your own Halloween dinnerware So now you've seen my interpretation of a Raven themed dinner party, I wanted to show you how I made the dinnerware. If you are like me you probably oogle over the holiday themed dishes but quickly shy away since you don't want to shell out for a whole set just for one celebration. (I don't even have real china so I think its safe to say I won't be buying any themed kind either)

Homemade Instant Oatmeal Packets – Kate’s Escapades A few days ago I bought a 42 oz. container of Quick-1 Minute Oatmeal on sale for $1.88. I figured it would be much cheaper than buying the instant oatmeal packets that my family is used to. The problem? My family expects things to be fast and easy. If all they have to do is empty a packet of oatmeal into a bowl, add water and pop it into the microwave for a minute or two, well, that’s doable. Vanilla Bean Baby Doughnuts Even though I've been a busy girl lately, I'm never too busy for a doughnut break! I especially love the mini variety. These are extra light and have a double dose of vanilla goodness. The idea for these came from the Starbucks Birthday Cake Doughnut, a very dense doughnut that is eye-catching with pink icing and tiny white nonpareils. Since my recipe turned out very light and fluffy (the exact opposite of Starbucks) I made them in my favorite shade of blue. The texture was not at all what I expected from a baked doughnut.

S’mores Bars S’mores Bars by Rebecca Jun 21st, 2010 // Desserts, Recipes If ever there was an irresistibly delicious dessert THIS IS IT. The recipe comes from my friend Mindy’s mom, Peg. Honeyed Pears in Puff Pastry Poaching fruit is one of my favorite things to do when cold weather arrives. 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.
