GRANNY’S APPLE CRISP Every time I go to the grocery store, I think the same thing. “Jonna . . . you ding bat, why don’t you ever make yourself a grocery list!” Seriously, I can’t seem to get in that habit. I simply think my brain will remember the items I need. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t go completely clueless, I mentally check the fridge and cupboards before I go. What lecture? The lecture I’d get from my good husband, who thinks I buy way too much food, clothes and everything else. “Fix it up, Wear it out, make do, or do without!” That lecture. The kids and I have heard this lecture . . . more times than we can count. I had to do something with all the apples, and fast. See . . . this is what I made with those Apples, and it’s really good. This recipe is called Granny’s Apple Crisp, and it’s in the Worldwide Ward Cookbook. This crumble is the Shortbread type crumble and it’s really yummy! In fact it’s really difficult not to pick all the crumbs off the top . . . before you actually serve it. You will need:
Tiramisu Cheesecake Bars May 17, 2011 | Print | E-mail | Filed under cheesecake, chocolate, coffee Every Easter, I try to come up with a new dessert to serve the family. The first year we hosted, it was fruit tartlets. The second year, I believe it was Oreo truffles. After that, things get a little fuzzy and I can’t remember exactly what I made each year…but this year, it was these tiramisu cheesecake bars. I’m not going to lie, they take some time in the kitchen between all of the baking and cooling – but none of the steps are that hard, promise!

The Baker's Daughter: Polka dot cheesecake I saw someone wearing the greatest polka dot rain coat today and it inspired me to make this cheesecake. It needs to be refrigerated overnight so make sure you make it the day before you want to serve it. I find that popping it into the freezer for about 1/2 hour makes it a lot easier to cut. Crust 1 cup Graham crumbs 2 tbsp sugar ¼ cup melted butter Filling 16 oz softened cream cheese ½ cup sugar 2 eggs 2 oz dark chocolate, melted 1 tsp vanilla 2/3 cup sour cream Directions Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grease a 7 X 7 inch square pan and line it with parchment paper. In a small bowl, mix together the graham crumbs, sugar, cocoa, and melted butter and press into the pan. Beat cream cheese until smooth. Melt the 2 oz of dark chocolate in a bain marie (a bowl placed over a pot of barely simmering water), or in a microwave on low temperature. Pour the plain batter into the pan, smoothing out to the edges. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour.

Guess it just shows that you can’t please everyone… I know I’ve made my fair share of gluttonous dishes but this one might top them all. A conversation on the phone between my hubby and I.

Love and Olive Oil ? Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles Oh. My. God. If you could take perfection, roll it in a ball, and dip it chocolate, this would be it. I’m not joking here folks. I’d strongly advise you to put down the mouse and get your butt to the kitchen, stat. My apologies to the New Years’ resolution folk. The cookie dough itself is egg-free, and potentially dairy free AND vegan if you get picky about what you coat them with. Take it or leave it (but I strongly suggest you take it.

Japanese Cheesecake There are cakes which look absolutely stunning and gorgeous on the outside, but when it comes to the taste, it disappoints, and you just wished that it tasted as good as it looks. I've had a lot of those experiences, and in fact, I think I've made a few of cakes like that myself! What I love about a good Japanese cheesecake is that while in appearance it resembles a humble (and perhaps, plain or boring?) sponge cake, but the minute you put it into your mouth, you want to close your eyes and go 'hmmmmmmmmmmmmm'. We all go through phases, don't we?! Right out of the oven...hmmmmm.

No Bake Snickers Pie I adore Snickers. I try to be very, very good about only eating one once in a long while, though. The other day I was needed to make a quick pie and decided to try and make one that tasted like a Snickers bar. I whipped together the simple no-bake filling and folded in chopped snickers bars. No-Bake Snickers Pie 1 chocolate cookie pie crust or graham cracker pie crust (9-inch) 2 cups fresh whipped cream 1 can sweetened condensed milk 8 ounces cream cheese 1/4 cup dulce de leche, plus 1 tablespoon for drizzling 3 Snickers Bars, roughly chopped.

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars: My October Secret Recipe Club Entry | This month I was assigned to check out all the recipes at Delicious Existence and choose one to make my own, for this month’s Secret Recipe Club . The majority of Danielle’s recipes are raw, vegan or vegetarian, so there were tons of healthy options to choose from, but wouldn’t you know one of her desserts was just calling my name. Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars looked and sounded like the perfect dessert for this brisk fall weather we’ve been having, so I began my baking adventure. I don’t have many of the ingredients in my kitchen that Danielle used in her original recipe, but I was able to substitute things from my own kitchen with great results.
