Web’s Best: Desserts for Dudes

Web’s Best: Desserts for Dudes
For some inexplicable reason, dessert has never been seen as a man’s game. Yeah, we’ll eat it, but baking never seemed to be nearly as manly as tossing a steak on the grill. If you’re ready to put your ego aside (at least partially) here are some desserts you could whip up that have a bit of macho in them. Chocolate-Dipped Beer Marshmallows “Back the truck up, did you say, ‘Beer marshmallows?’” Yes, we did my good man. Coconut Cornflake Fried Ice Cream Using a deep fryer or a pan filled with hot oil is something we have quite a bit of experience with. The Lebowski Shake When you want to finish a meal off with a beverage and a dessert, you could do no better than The Lebowski Shake. Bourbon Marshmallow Bacon S’mores S’mores take us back to Cub Scouts and gathering fire wood to cook up our first ever outdoor meals. Scotch, Espresso & Vanilla Affogato An affogato (vanilla ice cream with espresso poured over it) is delicious enough on its own, but this is the supercharged version. Beeramisu

Rocky Road Fudge Brownies This started off as a typical morning; feed baby, start coffee, turn on laptop, open up blog, and boom! Not so typical anymore. My laptop is about to go to “sleep” and it won’t wake-up until I can find/buy another charging adapter. Guess what? The Geeky Chef: Sea Salt Ice Cream From the Kingdom Hearts II video game I've never made ice cream before, so I did you guys a favor and found this recipe elsewhere. This ice cream mixes the salty taste of sea salt with the sweet tastes of cream and sugar. Apparently, Kingdom Hearts II director Tetsuya Nomura had this ice cream on a trip to the Tokyo Disneyland Resort and liked it so much he decided to work with Disney to put it in the games.

Marshmallow Crunch Brownie Bars These are the most addictive baked good I've made in a long time. Not that a lot of other things I've baked haven't been delicious but these were just deadly. Not only are the flavours delicious (chocolate + marshmallow + peanut butter) but the texture combination is great too. Fudgey brownie, gooey marshmallow, chocolate peanut butter with rice krispies. I'm really hungry for dinner right now so I can't think of much else to say about these - just know that your life is incomplete without them. How to make epic pancakes with your Japanese rice cooker Every summer, I try to spend as many days as possible on the beach at Enoshima, and each time I get out of the station and walk towards the sand, I pass a long line of people waiting for a seat at the local pancake restaurant. This isn’t Japan’s only pancake joint with a lengthy wait, either, as you can find similar eateries with comparable lines in Tokyo, too. It used to strike me as a little weird. After all, whipping up a stack of pancakes isn’t exactly the most challenging culinary feat. It can get tedious, though, as you settle into a monotonous pattern of plopping batter into the pan, flipping the half-cooked cake, and repeating over and over again. Or, you could bypass all that by making an entire batch of pancakes all at once in a rice cooker.

evil chef mom: chocolate peanut butter pie How to Make Your Baby Pterodactyl Mad In 4 Easy Steps. [No, I didn't have sex with a dinosaur nor was I inseminated with whatever and I didn't splice some dino dna with frog dna a la Jurassic Park like some mad scientist] First, you need to find yourself a 17 year old daughter then when she starts complaining tell her she sounds like a baby pterodactyl. Squawk! That looks about right. Second, embarrass her by telling a family friend that when she was younger she didn't have an ounce of gaydar in her whole entire body. 5 Delicious Cheeses You Should Throw on the Grill It's possible to cook cheese directly over a live fire; here are five varieties that are perfect for it. [Photographs: Joshua Bousel] The look of confusion is priceless. Every time I mention to someone that I'm going to be "grilling cheese," I watch them slowly try to parse what I'm saying. He surely meant to say 'grilled cheese,' right?

Banana Bread French Toast Okay listen. On the off chance that you MIGHT have some banana bread left (I know I know, I’m asking a lot), like after you make a loaf… this is what you should do. The idea came about after we saw about 5 minutes of the daylong chocolate special on Food Network the Saturday before Valentine’s Day. Sandra Lee was making some sort of chocolate cake into french toast when my husband says, “oh you have to try that with banana bread! I bet it would be sooo good.” I concurred. Juice Pulp Bread - Stone Soup - February 2014 Published: By Ashley Galloway, MS, RD A nice glass of fresh carrot or beet juice always makes my day a little more special. But the more I juiced, the more guilty I felt for tossing out all that pulp (at least I composted it!). “Waste not, want not” kept popping into my mind, so I finally put my foot down and just stuck the pulp into the refrigerator until I figured out how I would use it.

Short and Sweet: Profiterole Sundaes with Warm Ganache Here’s a delicious way to ring out 2012. I adore profiteroles – I used to choose chocolate-covered cream puffs instead of a birthday cake. I sometimes succumb to the frozen tubs at the grocery store (perfect for chocolate fondue, by the way), but they’re not at all hard to make from scratch.

50 Things You Should Stop Buying & Start Making Published with permission from Natural Living Ideas You might be realizing that most of the products out there that aren’t made organically or naturally contain a lot of toxic chemicals. Not only that, many of these products can be harmful to our environment in a number of ways. Rocky Road Brownies I was fortunate enough to grow up within driving distance of the Happiest Place on Earth. I was even more fortunate to have the chance to work during my teen years. One of the best perks of the job was the fantastic discount on all things bought within the Park … including the homemade candy and fudge!! Along with my dear friend Josh, I would trek down Main Street to the Candy Palace and buy a tray of freshly made Rocky Road. Oh, chocolate! Oh, marshmallows!

Best 40 Desserts From Around The World. #1 Had Me Drooling. Share on Facebook After an awesome meal, there is nothing better than a delicious dessert or two… #1. Chocolate Soufflé with Grand Marnier (France) Triple Layer Cookies and Cream Crunch Bars After last weekend, I had a ton of Oreos to use up. I should mentioned that this was after I baked a second batch of those Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies. Oops. I might have bought two packages.
