DIY Red Bull Tasteologie Home - Pastry Affair Death By Oreo Cupcakes They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried. A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor. So, in this recipe there is Oreo's in the cake, in the frosting, and at the bottom is a Oreo surprise. That's right, you put a whole Oreo at the bottom of the cake. Ingredients 1 package Oreo Cookies, regular size 1 package Mini Oreo Cookies, for decoration (optional) 1 package chocolate cake mix (mix according to directions on box) 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), room temperature 3 3/4 cups powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract cupcake liners Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and cream cheese.

Chicken Salsa Ranch Wraps James has been traveling for work quite a bit lately so I”ve been doing a lot of cooking for just me and Max. Normally that means I take a break from the kitchen and make things like hot dogs and poutines. But something has gotten into me lately and I”m finding myself wanting to make real dinners even when my hubby”s gone. Recipes like this one are what help me keep it healthy when it”s just me and the kids. I”m very lucky because Max is not a picky eater. I love the way the sauce coats the chicken and thickens up a bit once it hits the hot pan. Chicken Salsa Ranch Wraps 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into strips salt and pepper, to taste 1/2 cup salsa 1/4 ranch dressing tortillas shredded cheese, lettuce and sliced red bell peppers, to serve Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Serves: 4 Adapted from Kraft .

30 Min. Clean Thai Turkey Zucchini Meatballs Today is not a story day. Today is super awesome meatballs day! I got my new dishwasher that can even make Thai meatballs.:) In all seriousness, we have a deal: I make the meatballs and he does the dirty job. And he knows his job really well. Meatballs don’t have to be smothered in tomato sauce, nor they have to be simmered for hours. They can have your favourite Thai flavours, be cooked in a skillet, within 30 minutes. They also do not have to contain eggs, bread or breadcrumbs. And a little secret, use any meat you have on hand. These Thai Turkey (or not) Meatballs are full of your favourite Thai flavours like curry paste, fish sauce, ginger, basil, green onions and coconut milk. You don’t even need to cook the meatballs through. Then you add the sauce… Very simple sauce: coconut milk, tomato paste, curry paste and fish sauce. We served the meatballs with organic short grain brown rice. 30 Minute Clean Thai Turkey Zucchini Meatballs Ingredients For Meatballs: For the Sauce: Directions

Creamy Caprese Pasta Sigh. It’s Monday. I know. You probably don’t have a smile on your face. Maybe you woke up 35 minutes late and couldn’t wash your hair. Dumped hot coffee on your new white shirt? That only means one thing. Mondays are for grown ups. But I have some good news! Monday just got a whole lot more tolerable. Shucks… I sort of like Monday now. So – the pasta! Am I gonna give it up or what? Creamy Caprese Pasta serves 4-6 1 pound whole wheat pasta (noodles such as penne work best) 1 cup of your favorite pasta/tomato sauce 1/3 cup heavy cream or half and half 1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese + more for garnish 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into cubes 1 pint of grape tomatoes (I cut some in half and left some whole) 1 bunch of fresh basil leaves Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. While pasta is cooking, heat tomato sauce over low heat in a large saucepan. Top with additional fresh basil and grated cheese. Take that Monday.

Calabacines rellenos de atún con salsa de pimientos ¡¡ Qué tal amigos !! Después de la odisea de esas galletitas de la entrada anterior correspondía preparar algo salado (que no solo de dulces vive la blogosfera), y he aquí que un buen día me veo a la puerta de una fruteria, estos calabacines luna (creo que se llaman) tan redonditos ellos, tan monos y si me apuras hasta tuve la sensación de que me miraban y claro no me pude resistir a comprarlos. Tú ¿qué hubieras hecho...........? El calabacín es una hortaliza que siempre está presenta en mi cocina. Lo encuentro tan versátil, cómodo, va bien con casi todo lo que quieras acompañar y además bajo en calorías ideal para las dietas de adelgazamiento. La verdad es que precisamente hoy con el tiempo tan desagradable de frio, viento y lluvia o nieve apetece más un buen plato de sopa o legumbres que éste que hoy os propongo pero se habia quedado en el tintero completamente olvidado y eso no es justo hay que darle un poco de protagonismo.Y punto y aparte, ¡basta ya de tanta palabreria!.

Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies Little bit of a mouthful there. But it’s like a cookie on top of another cookie! Yeah. Except these ones down below wanted to try a few different positions. I dunno… they’re all mixed up. In order to solve a common I-want-a-chocolate-CHOCOLATE-cookie-but-he-wants-a-plain-chocolate chip-cookie dilemma that happens like, every single weekend here… I made both. Some of them smashed up against each other while others sat on top of each other but in the end, they all tasted… fantabulous. And then they tasted extra delicious after I spent two hours cleaning out the contents of our bar (take that as you will), after he spent three hours organizing the pantry (that was weird) and after we both needed to severely eat our emotions immediately post-Boardwalk Empire finale. WHAT was that. ??????? Why??? Then I tried to dunk a cookie in milk and failed. I need cookie dunking lessons, a redo on season 2 (thanks HBO), and a salad. Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies makes 24 cookies

Super-Duper Vanilla {or Funfetti} Cupcakes I know it may seem as though lately all I bake with and talk about is white cake & sprinkles, but I promise there are so many delightful-yet-unsprinkled baked goods coming your way in the next while. See, I’m certain this current sprinkle obsession of mine is just a phase–you know, much like my 1990′s obsession with Bret Michaels. I mean, come on . . . really. What was I thinking? No, wait, you’re right–that was no phase. But, that doesn’t mean that I want *ahem* “white cake & sprinkles” every day. So what makes these cupcakes the “super-duper” vanilla cupcakes? Lastly, a few weeks ago I made some vanilla sugar (this could not be any easier, guys), which is essentially just adding a fresh vanilla bean and its seeds into regular white sugar for about a week or so (at least) and then using it in place of plain sugar. I mean, really? Nope, I have no idea what you’re talking about. So when I sit and do the math, we actually made 80+ Super-Duper Vanilla Cupcakes in the past week or so.
