Lemon Pound Cake This recipe is from the Ritz Carlton Cooking School I went to back in August. I've been working my way through some of my favorite dishes at home, and this lemon pound cake was the first recipe I attempted. I loved the cake when we had it at cooking school, and I wanted to share it with Chicken Legs. The cake turned out fantastic! It tasted just like it did at cooking school. It had a great lemon flavor without being overwhelming. Day Spa Apple Cinnamon Water- 0 calories « Lose Weight by Eating! Did you know both apples and cinnamon raise your metabolism?

15 Basic Stir Fry Sauce Recipes I love a good stir fry and they are a great way to use up odds and ends of meat, vegetable and noodles. And let’s face it, they are a quick and easy dinner solution. Simply cook up some rice or throw in some noodles and it’s a family-pleasing meal. I rarely start with a recipe – just a pile of odds and ends. So it occurred to me recently that what I really needed was a stir-fry sauce “cheat sheet” – a handy reference for the combination of sauce ingredients I need to make different kinds of stir fry to combine with my collection of ingredients. Here I’ve collected 15 great stir-fry sauce recipes that can be printed to keep handy in the kitchen (or bookmarked, if you prefer).

Nutella Milkshake Have you been having Nutella withdrawals? I know I have! So I thought it was time for another Nutella recipe before someone got hurt (yes it’s that serious in my house LOL) I was lucky enough to get a 750ml jar of the luscious Nutella for Christmas and it was time to crack that bad boy open (I know such restraint right, don’t get too excited I have gone through 2 other smaller jars since Christmas tee hee)! I hadn’t had a frappe’ (pronounced fra-pay) in awhile and additionally I got a FAB stainless steel Cuisinart Immersion Blender for Christmas (Mwah, thanks Mom!) Snow Ice Cream Yesterday we had our first decent snow of the winter (we had a little earlier on, but no accumulation). We decided to make some snow ice cream with it. Normally I just use some milk, sugar, and vanilla for snow ice cream, but I saw this recipe on Wannabe Southern Cook and wanted to try it. It is a really easy recipe, just three ingredients.

Copy Cat Starbuck's White Chocolate Mocha Ever since I made those Homemade Gingerbread Latte’s I've been going crazy hunting down Latte recipes to make. I will admit it I'm hooked! I never really thought to make copy cat versions of my favorite coffee drinks, but I really think it's the way to go. Don't get me wrong Starbucks is still the best, but I just cant afford my coffee addiction. Making them myself will really save me so much money. I was searching on the Internet and came across a copy cat version for my favorite Starbuck's White Chocolate Mocha.
