Baked Caramel Apple Donuts & shutterbean When you find yourself shopping online at 2AM, mini donut pans sound like a brilliant idea. That’s not something your sharp witted, practical 12PM mind allows you to consider–especially when your husband begged you not to add anymore items to the kitchen. When you wake up the next morning with a confirmation that your donut pans have shipped, you might find yourself wondering what else you’ve ordered online…Japanese steak knives? The Kitchn's Best Pie Bakeoff 2008 Previous image Next image Well, the pies have been rolling in, but there's still room for yours. Our 14 Favorite Go-To Websites For Making Home Cooked Meals Last week, I wrote about my top 10 favorite cookbooks that have taught me to love home cooking. After posting that article we had a commenter ask us to reveal what our favorite online cooking website were, which could serve as cheap alternatives to the more expensive hard (and soft) cover cookbooks. Personally, I’ve spent a ton of time over the last couple of years perusing food blogs — some VERY fancy ones meant for far more experienced chefs than I, and some simpler ones (which are more my speed). I go weak in the knees for beautiful food photography, and I’m always intrigued to see how food bloggers use text, lighting, and unique props to make their recipes sing. Unfortunately, I do not live inside the picture-perfect world of a food blogger, and a lot of the food that Chelsea and I create doesn’t look as appetizing as the food produced by professional food bloggers — and that’s OK!

Popsicles! Not to sound full of myself, but I’m pretty sure this is the be all, end all of popsicle roundups. There’s a little something for everyone: the foodies, the purists, the ones who prefer frozen yogurt, the ones who prefer a little alcohol, everyone. Tweny-five options to be exact. 28 Muffin Recipes You’ll Want to Try I love muffins. I love them even more than cupcakes. Probably because they are so quick to make. It’s almost instant gratification from the time the muffin idea pops in your head until you’re pulling them from the oven.

Jasey's Crazy Daisy: Snickers Brownies 1 box of brownie mix, I prefer Betty Crocker's Fudge or Dark Chocolate mixes Ingredients called for on box 1/4 cup hot fudge topping, unheated, straight from the jar Nougat Layer: {Adapted from How Sweet It Is} 1/4 cup unsalted butter 1 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup evaporated milk 2 (7 oz.) jars marshmallow creme (@1 1/2 cups) 1/4 cup peanut butter 1 1/2 cups salted peanuts, roughly chopped 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 (17 oz.) jar of caramel, preferably Mrs. Richardson's Butterscotch Caramel 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips 1/4 cup peanut butter.

Dulce de leche, so easy to make I was at my mom’s house this past weekend watching college basketball and helping her cook. She was going to make dulce de leche to use in several things she was making. Dulce de leche is incredibly easy to make. All you do is heat a can of sweetened condensed milk in water for several hours until the condensed milk transforms into this amazing caramel treat inside. My mom usually does this in a pan of boiling water for a few hours, but I told her I had seen it done in a crock pot. We were both intrigued by the idea we saw on A Year of Slow Cooking, so thought that we would give it a try? 50 Smoothies : Recipes and Cooking 1. Banana Blend 2 bananas, 1/2 cup each vanilla yogurt and milk, 2 teaspoons honey, a pinch of cinnamon and 1 cup ice. 2. Strawberry-Banana Blend 1 banana, 1 cup strawberries, 1/2 cup each vanilla yogurt and milk, 2 teaspoons honey, a pinch of cinnamon and 1 cup ice. 3. Strawberry Shortcake Blend 2 cups strawberries, 1 cup crumbled pound cake, 1 1/2 cups each milk and ice, and sugar to taste.

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. Using a knife dipped in hot water between cuts also helps to make clean edges.

Strawberry Meyer Lemonade Spritzer—Kids Friendly Just a quick post to show you another refreshing summery drink that I’ve been enjoying. I know it’s only Spring in Southern California but the temperature is definitely not Spring. 80+ degree F in the mid-afternoon? I need something to cool myself down before I catch on fire! I’m such a lucky girl to always have a basket full of Meyer lemons (special delivered by my In-Laws, thank you!) waiting for me to create refreshing treats and drinks. “Homemade” Dulce de Leche NOTE: Please read all instructions below. It’s very important to keep the water level above the cans at all times, as well as keep the heat on very low. (See alternate methods at the bottom of this post!) Dulce de Leche is a heavenly substance. At first glance, it looks a little like caramel, but it’s actually sweetened milk that’s been heated long enough to cause a caramelizing to occur.
