Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Bites We were having friends over for dinner last night, so I decided to make a treat for dessert. My friend Currié loves peanut butter and chocolate combined so when I found this recipe on Chocolate Therapy, I knew it would be perfect. I followed the directions except for using a mini muffin tin instead of a large muffin tin. They were the perfect little bite sized treats – they were rich, decadent, and so delicious. We all absolutely loved them, especially my kids who told me they hoped I would make these all the time.

Bleu Cheese Stuffed Figs Figs are one of my favorite foods ever. I think I like them so much because fig season is incredibly short and they’re nearly impossible to find fresh out of season. So when they are in season I go a little crazy and eat them almost everyday! One of my favorite things to do with figs (besides just standing in front of the fridge, stuffing my face with them) is the recipe above. It’s super easy and so freakin’ good! Some people aren’t fans of bleu cheese….that’s okay, I forgive you…if that’s the case I recommend switching it out for a White Stilton (specifically the lemon peel flavored one…so good!).

Sunday Roast Recipe This has to be my ultimate Sunday lunch. It’s a special alternative to your traditional roast beef dinner.

How to Make: Homemade Greek Yogurt - Teaspoon of Spice During my years of grad school in Boston, I lived with a flat mate, Amy, who cooked a little but mainly lived on canned beans, noodles, jarred tomato sauce and an occasional piece of fish cooked in aluminum foil. So I almost dropped the phone the other day when I was chatting with Amy and she nonchalantly mentioned that she now makes homemade yogurt weekly. I’ve been seeing a lot of the homemade yogurt recipes on Pinterest lately, but clearly if Amy is making it “weekly,” and I NEVER have, I am way, way behind the times.

Cook the Book: Fresh Ricotta and Egg Ravioli with Brown Butter [Photograph: Sara Remington] "Putting an egg on it" has become up there with adding bacon when it comes to increasing the tasty factor. And while we've seen plenty of over easy topped burgers and pulled pork sandwiches, this trend isn't too rampant in the world of pasta aside from wonderfully yolk-y carbonara. But Nancy Silverton is about to change all of that with this recipe for Fresh Ricotta and Egg Ravioli with Brown Butter from The Mozza Cookbook.
