Sticky Lemon Rolls with Lemon Cream Cheese Glaze

Sticky Lemon Rolls with Lemon Cream Cheese Glaze
They are modeled after the classic cinnamon roll, and partially inspired by this bread, with a buttery yeast dough flecked with nutmeg and lemon. But inside each roll is a rich filling of sugar and lemon that bakes into gooey, oozey sweet-tart deliciousness. The cream cheese glaze puts it over the top, with more lemon tartness and not too much sweetness. The final word on them comes from my mother, who looked at me, wide-eyed, over the brunch table, and said, solemnly, "This is the best thing I ever put in my mouth."

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries These cheesecake stuffed strawberries are the perfect dessert treat! Can I just say that I have died and gone to heaven. Snickerdoodle Bars Today is Baby Boy’s 5 month birthday. He celebrated by going to bed at 7pm (What a good boy!). We celebrated by having the rest of the Snickerdoodle Bars I had made earlier in the week using a delicious recipe Miss posted on her blog Miss in the Kitchen. Miss makes these cinnamon sugary delicious bars for her boys, so it seemed fitting that for this week’s Taste Test Thursday we share her recipe with you. Eating our Snickerdoodles, we reflected on our first five months of parenthood.

Pancakes and Strawberry Butter In my opinion, pancakes are the most perfect of breakfast foods. However, not all pancakes are created equal and I’ve been on a lifelong quest to find the perfect pancake recipe. My ideal pancake is thick and cakey, yet still maintaining a light fluffiness. One of the best pancakes I’ve ever had meeting this description is at the okayokay diner in our neighbourhood. It’s a really small diner so we often end up eating at the counter where you can watch the cook making orders on the griddle. I’ve spent many a morning watching him ladle out the pancake batter, speculating about possible ingredient combinations and ideal cooking temperatures. Buttery Popcorn Ice Cream Recipes from The Kitchn Ice Cream Week at The Kitchn seemed like the perfect opportunity to test out my own version of popcorn ice cream (using that very same vanilla base), and I'm so pleased with the results. I especially love when a recipe I develop transitions perfectly from restaurant to home. It just goes to show that any cook is capable of pastry chef-worthy desserts!

Sticky Balsamic Ribs OK, Folks. No joke, these are the best ribs ever!! I always look at reader reviews when I choose a recipe. They help me decide whether a recipe is worth it, or not. Well, this one had rave reviews...many calling the ribs award-worthy, contest winning, etc. Cinnamon Toast Rolls The USDA released its new food pyramid the other day (which is actually a plate now instead of a pyramid), and I am sorely disappointed to report that cinnamon rolls did not appear anywhere on that plate. I think by now most of us know what should be on our dinner plate in terms of healthy, well-rounded nutrient-laden meals, but it is my considered opinion that our breakfast plate should include cinnamon rolls now and then. And not just any cinnamon roll, mind you, but how ‘bout a homemade cinnamon roll hybrid that is a cross between a cinnamon roll and cinnamon toast, is super easy to make and gosh darn delicious. In honor of their ancestry, I call these little gems cinnamon toast rolls, and here’s all you need to make them… Yep. That’s it… some soft white bread, some butter and some cinnamon sugar.

Green Juice Sorbet I can honestly not tell you how long I have been a vegan. A couple of years, at least. I can tell you, however, that I was very late to the green juice bandwagon. A drink that I often feel is a vegan staple item. Everyday, I would find someone on Twitter talking about their latest green juice recipe. Garlic Knots When I was in High School, I thought garlic knots were the best things on earth. I guess I still kind of think that, but often I’m disappointed by the garlic knots I buy. I’m not sure if the quality of garlic knots has gone down in NYC or if I’ve become harder to please. These days, they are often hard and dry, probably from being left around too long. As with all bread-based goodies, the freshest way to get it is out of your own oven.

No-Knead Pumpkin Rolls with Brown Sugar Glaze Fall isn't really here until the first batch of pumpkin breakfast rolls are out of the oven, don't you agree? We love pulling them apart while still warm, and breathing in that spicy pumpkin-scented steam. We save the soft middle for last and then lick all the glaze from our fingers. This no-knead version is perfect for making ahead. The dough can rise for anywhere from one to three hours to fit your schedule. The risen dough is easiest to work with if you can refrigerate it for at least an hour, though you can shape and bake the rolls right away if you need to. Sweet-Tea Ribs with Lemony Potato Salad Recipe : Food Network Kitchens Directions Empty 3 tea bags into a bowl and combine the loose tea with 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 teaspoons salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Grate in the orange zest. Pat the ribs dry and trim the membrane from the underside. Rub the tea mixture over the ribs; place in a roasting pan, meat-side up, and bring to room temperature, about 20 minutes.

Oven-Baked Caramel French Toast This Mother’s Day, treat your mom to a special brunch… Make her this delicious french toast! Personally, this is a very special Mother’s Day for me, since I am now the proud mother of both a son and a daughter. My little girl will be 3 weeks old this Saturday, the 7th. She is quite precious, and I am loving every second of being a mother of two!
