We look for any excuse to celebrate with food. This year I thought Churro Tots - StumbleUpon Happy Wednesday, beautiful people.Factoid for you: Getting my car serviced stresses me.To deal, I totally made Churro Tots. Throw in stress eating and calls to dad, and it some how made everything okay. I encourage it! Banana Ice Cream Sandwiches & Veggie Wedgie I really love frozen bananas-who doesn’t? Raw banana ice cream has been one of my favorite treats since last summer- it’s so easy and quick to make! Now that the weather is warm again, I started making it more often but this time I thought I should try something different- I wanted to make ice cream sandwiches with banana filling, and since I was making the filling raw, I thought that it would be cool to also make the cookies raw, no? The result was pretty good : a very light, dairy free and nut free creamy treat!

Cookies and Cream Peanut Butter…Midnight Snack Need a midnight snack? Or anytime snack for that matter, my cookies and cream peanut butter might just knock your socks off I was so lucky to have my sister and her family visit earlier this week and I got to have some kitchen time with her beautiful girls. They are just the sweetest things ever. Hope you’ll enjoy this naughty snack that’s good enough to eat by the spoonful! How To Make Barista-Worthy Coffee At Home Make coffee at home instead of buying fancy lattes at the local cafe (or, OK, Starbucks outpost), and you’ll save boatloads of cash each year. Shocking, right? If only it were that simple. Although financial gurus repeatedly trot out the so-called latte factor as a prime example of how we’re all busting our budgets, the tired tip fails to account for one major hurdle: taste. If we all boasted barista skills and our home kitchens had $1,000-plus espresso machines, the venti whatevers wouldn’t stand a chance. As it is… well, let’s just say it’s no surprise that so many people are willing to fork over $5 for a caffeine fix.

Pay attention to the health bits, Homemade Samoas & - StumbleUpon Yeah, that’s right. I made homemade Samoas. OK, so these are a bit more time-consuming to make than your average cookies (there are a few assembly-related steps), but they are so worth it.

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. I magically found the refrigerated lemon juice at our house and followed the directions to make my own lemonade. I stirred and stirred and stirred again until that sugar was finally dissolved. Vanilla Latte Cookies November 3, 2011 | Print | E-mail | Filed under 12weeksofchristmascookies, cookie Now that Halloween is over (and we’re halfway through the 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies!), are you already planning for Thanksgiving? I know some who are already knee-deep in planning, and others who haven’t even thought about it yet. I’m somewhere in between; since it’s my turn to host again this year, I’ve been trying to put together a menu at least so that I can let people know what else to bring. So far it’s slow-going, although I do have a few ideas in mind.

How to Make Chocolate Mousse This is a serious dessert mousse, friends. A chocolate experience so rich, velvety and decadent, a few tablespoons is really all that any one person needs. I usually chuckle when I watch Mrs. Pastry eat chocolate bars, because she nibbles them like a mouse, savoring every tiny morsel. However even I — a man known to wolf chocolate bars down by the handful — eat this only incrementally, off the tip of a spoon.
