Enter my Baby Pool Contest for a chance to win up to $100 (3 winners!). Click here now. I love decorating cookies (obviously). But, sometimes the thought of making dough, rolling it out, using cutters, baking cookies, cooling cookies, making royal icing, dying the icing, preparing the bags, and finally decorating the cookies exhausts me. I wonder why? So, I love making cookies that look awesome and don’t require icing or pastry bags. Ingredients: Your favorite sugar cookies recipe (for cutout cookies)Various food coloring (I used Wilton’s golden yellow, Americolor pink, Americolor chocolate brown, Americolor super red – I think that is it!) 1. I didn’t get a picture of the dowels themselves, but you’ll see what I mean in a minute. 2. Dye the smaller dough ball a dark red/pink/brown (I used red, pink, and brown coloring – imagine that?). I wanted to make these cookies slice and bake, like the original tutorial, so once your dough is nice and cold, start building your block of dough. 3. 4.

Crafty Kitchen: Owl S’mores Here’s a fun recipe for adults and kids alike–owl smores! Let’s just start off by saying, when the items below are the ingredients, you know the final product is going to be good! To make these owls you’ll need graham crackers, Reese’s peanut butter cups, candy corn, M&Ms, and large marshmallows. To get started, use a sharp knife to cut off the top 3/8″ of each peanut butter cup (PB cups). If you’re having problems with the chocolate peeling off the bottom of the PB cups when you take off the wrapper, try putting them in the fridge or a cool place so the chocolate isn’t as soft. Line the PB cups up on half a graham cracker so the rounded part hangs just off the bottom. Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars There’s not much in the world of desserts that I love more than the combination of peanut butter, chocolate and cheesecake. Give me any of those three on their own and I’d grab a spoon or fork and go to town. Mix two of them together and you enter the land of pure sweets bliss. But all three? Put them together and you have dessert nirvana.

Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie for One By Lauren Zembron, on July 20th, 2012 I know, I know… it seems as though I’ve been posting sweet recipe after sweet recipe (with a little something cheesy thrown in); but you see, after what seemed like a long time during which sweets were unappealing during my first trimester, (what can I say, pregnancy does some strange things to your body!), they’re apparently back with a vengeance on my appetite’s menu. Real Uzbek Plov Home >> Recipes Uzbekistan's national dish, plov, is a hearty cousin of Pakistani pulaos and Persian rices dishes. Watch me make it like Uzbek mamas do! Plov [plohf] is a cult dish not only in its homeland Uzbekistan, but all over the former Soviet Republics and Russia.

Homemade Snickers Bars Insanity. That’s what this is. Pure In.San.It.TEEEEE. You know those days when you’re in desperate need of sugar and you’ve already downed more gummy vitamins than recommended while seriously considering how many more you can ingest without causing severe harm to your internal organs? They’re just so gooooood. Baklava My style of baklava is nut-heavy, as you can see. I like it that way, though it does produce a baklava that isn’t easy to eat according to formal Turkish baklava etiquette. If you’re a stickler for formality, cut down the nuts. My FAVORITE Chocolate Chip Cookie I have experimented with countless recipes searching for that perfect chocolate chip cookie. The characteristics of the perfect cookie are a very personal matter, and here are my preferences: texture: chewy w. medium thickness --- everyone has their preference, and this is mine!

recipe: two (exactly two!) chocolate cupcakes I have a strange relationship with sweets. I’m kind of obsessed with making them, but I’m not really that much into eating them. I don’t have a big sweet tooth (I’ll take wine and cheese over cookies almost any day of the week). Russian Pilaf, "Plov" Every once in awhile, a dish comes along that is just perfect. In fact, it would be disrespectful to the generations before to change it. France has duck confit, Italy has risotto, the US has BBQ and Uzbekistan has "plov".

No-Bake Chewy Cookies and Cream Bars Oh how I love a treat that can be whipped up in about 15 minutes. My boys and their buddies couldn’t get enough of these Chewy Oreo Bars we had as an after school snack this week. Sometimes my spontaneous recipe creations turn out to be the most fun, lol! Yes you use an entire package of Oreo Cookies, but what you get in return is a marshmallow-y Oreo treat that is worth every bite Surprise the kids (and yourself) with this one, they’ll be all smiles, Enjoy!
