Texanerin Baking — Healthier baked goods that don't taste healthy. Boston Cream Poke Cake Sometimes I think this website should be called, "I Dream of Cake". Because, in a way, it's kinda true.

Ingredients: 1 box yellow cake mix ingredients needed to make cake; eggs, oil and water 2 (3.4oz) boxes instant Vanilla or French Vanilla pudding 4 cups milk 1 tub Chocolate Frosting Directions: Make cake mix according to directions and bake in a well-greased 9x13 pan. When cake is finished, while still warm, poke holes all over cake (about 1-inch) intervals using a wooden spoon handle or other similar size object. For the life of me, I could not found my round wooden spoon. So I went with my knife sharpener. In a bowl, add milk to pudding mixture and continue to whisk until most of the lumps are removed. Pour pudding on top of warm cake. Taking care to pour straight into the holes in the cake. Take a spoon and spread it out. Put cake in fridge and allow to cool completely before adding the frosting.

Slutty Brownies To celebrate the end of exams, I baked some of these infamous slutty brownies. No, I didn’t come up with the name of these naughty treats made with chocolate chip cookie dough, brownies, and Oreo cookies, but they have been popping up everywhere lately. Where did they come from? Duncan Hines has a recipe for these slutty brownies, but they use their own mixes to make them and I wanted to make them from scratch. They became even more famous a few months ago when Jessica Simpson announced on The Tonight Show that she was craving slutty brownies during her pregnancy. By the way, I used my recipe for Better than Box Fudge Brownies for the brownie part. Slutty Brownies 1¼ cups all-purpose flour½ tsp baking soda½ tsp salt1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup) at room temperature⅓ cup granulated sugar⅓ cup brown sugar½ tsp vanilla extract1 egg1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chipsSee recipe above for my fudge brownie from scratch recipe16 Oreo cookies This post is sponsored by: See this post on:

My Super Sweet Summer Salad « The Loving Spoonful LOOK! Look at this – it’s a blog post, ON SCHEDULE. I know, I know, I’m shocked too. When you’ve all picked yourselves up off the floor, allow me to introduce you to my Super Duper Salad. It’s not just a summer salad (I admit it, I like alliteration), but is delicious at any time of the year. I invented it in a flash of hunger-driven inspiration one evening – I’m not struck by culinary inspiration very often, but when it happens, it’s good. You can either saute precooked potatoes, if you’ve got any hanging around, or oven-roast them from scratch, which is how I make this. As with all warm salads, this needs to be assembled at the last minute – but no matter. Super Salad (serves 2) Ingredients: For the salad: 600g waxy potatoes Bag of mixed salad leaves or rocket 1 large, ripe avocade 100g bacon lardons (or 2 bacon slices, chopped) feta cheese For the dressing: olive oil honey lemon juice Method: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Sallys Baking Addiction Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake. » Sallys Baking Addiction Sunshine-sweet lemon layer cake dotted with juicy blueberries and topped with lush cream cheese frosting. Take a bite and taste the bursts of bright flavors! What on earth is a lusciously fruit-filled recipe like this doing on my kitchen table in February? Because I’m desperately craving some sunshine, pastels, and floral sweaters as I watch the snow fall out my window. While I know the east coast hasn’t been hit nearly as hard as the midwest, we’ve had more snow than we know what to do with. Share Video I love the snow, but someone pass me a fork. I made this cake for my girlfriends, Megan and Erin. On top of all of that, I brought over a few slices of this cake and a fresh batch of oatmeal cookies. Megan’s husband said the cake reminded him of a super moist sponge cake. Making a tall layer cake shouldn’t be overwhelming. Make sure you use fresh lemons. * How to choose lemons at the store? Use buttermilk. * Why not?

The Way the Cookie Crumbles & Blog Archive & cook's illustrated's perfect chocolate chip cookies If you’re at all familiar with my blog, you must have known that I would be all over Cooks Illustrated’s new chocolate chip cookie recipe. Not because it might become my new favorite – I knew beforehand that it wouldn’t. The thing is, I’m a major cookie dough eater. No, the real reason I wanted to try this recipe is because it has some interesting tricks in it, and I thought I might learn something. It also makes the recipe very easy – you just melt the butter, whisk in a few more ingredients, let it set, then stir in the remaining ingredients. Here are, for me, the things the recipe has against it. 1) The dough has a greasy texture from the melted butter. 2) It uses portions of eggs. You may have noticed that none of my complaints take issue with the outcome of the baked cookie?

Idea by Janice Kamide Images Source BuzzFeed Ranch Dressing It may seem like such a benign thing to be so excited about ranch dressing but I am. I’m not afraid to admit it. Like most of of us Americans, I was brought up eating bottled salad dressing. But did you realize that it will take you less time to make this dressing than it will to pick out a dressing from the massive variety the grocery stores offer these days?

Robyn Long - Timeline Photos | Facebook Apple Cheese Danish This may be a total shocker to some of you, but in third grade I was not the cool girl. Definitely not the cool girl. But I also wasn’t the weird girl, the girl that smelled nor the girl that was super jockey and athletic. I was just way normal. The cool girls were the sprightly blond ones. I was like, the antithesis of the situation you just read. My dad thought it was a genius idea to buy me boys’ tennis shoes because he thought they were “designed” better. And my lunch…ugh…my lunch was always kind of lame. But now…I’m a totally different person. Despite who you were in third grade, everyone can braid this cheese danish. Let’s talk frozen puff pastry. You’ll be able to spot it because puff pastry should only have a few ingredients: flour, water, salt and BUTTER. I found my puff pastry at Whole Foods for $10 for two sheets. A little pricey…but the quality was amazing. You’re going to start by throwing all of the filing ingredients in a bowl and mixing them up. Fall in a bowl. P.S.
