Kitchen Helpers - StumbleUpon I found these helpful charts last week and just had to share! Both of these beauties are from Chasing Delicious (aka one of the most fab foodie blogs out there)! Aren’t they faaaaabulous?! Desserts That Are Almost Too Cute To Eat & Pretty Please Us Blog: Your guide to fashion, beauty, style & everything else in between. Hi, my name is Himani and I’m a sugar addict. But the only thing that holds me back from devouring a sinful concoction is if it looks super cute. You know… because cute desserts deserve to live longer than the ugly ones (I’m going to some sort of sugar-y hell for that one). Gnocchi Mac and Cheese March 4, 2011 | Print | E-mail | Filed under cheese, Italian, potato It’s been quite a while since I posted my recipe for sweet potato gnocchi with brown butter sauce, so I decided that it was high time to post my go-to gnocchi recipe that this sweet, autumn version is based on.

Chocolate Cheesecake Cake Chocolate Cheesecake Cake You know how some people really don’t get along well with their In-Laws? How visits with them are stressful and awkward and generally awful for many people? Yeah, not me. I got kinda lucky on that whole “in-law” thing.

Coffee-Scented Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Coffee Buttercream OK, I’ll admit… I totally didn’t understand the “scented” cupcake thing until now. You always hear those fancy bakers from posh cupcakeries talk about pistachio-scented this and almond-scented that. And you know what? It used to sound silly to me. But now I totally get it.

LaSaGnA TiMpAnO I went to see tUnE-yArDs on Monday night with some friends, and as always we wanted to cook a meal that somehow related to the show we were heading to. Sometimes this is hard to do, but other times it seems to come naturally. Finding culinary inspiration in Merrill's lyrics seemed like it would be tough, but my sister knew what she wanted to make without hesitation.
