Simple Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta Hey Guys! So, Valentine’s Day is this week and I’m already kind of over it. I mean enough already with the overtly sentimental jewelry commercials, the red and pink vomited aisles at drugstores and the rush to make dinner reservations at the most expensive and “romantic” restaurant you can think of….just stop it, please! Valentine’s Day isn’t supposed to be so complicated nor do I think it needs to be so….pink. It should be a time when couples take a little bit of time out of their busy schedules to tell each other, I like you and you make me happy…AND for singles to re-recognize the fabulousness that is he or she and be happy about it. I don’t think it needs to get any more complicated or cheesy. Today we have a dessert that I like to think of as one of the most low maintenance, tastiest desserts ever. Simple Panna Cotta with a Mango-Sage Coulis Serves 8 Directions: 1.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Cups Soooooo… you know that episode of Sex and the City where Miranda has to dump dish soap on top of chocolate cake just so she will stop eating it?? Uh. Yeeeeeah. These are like… of that caliber. And that totally almost happened to me. I ate what felt like a million, then had a plate of 5-day old green bean fries from the fridge and called it lunch. I definitely recommend those. For lunch. Face? Inhale.

Japanese Cheesecake There are cakes which look absolutely stunning and gorgeous on the outside, but when it comes to the taste, it disappoints, and you just wished that it tasted as good as it looks. I've had a lot of those experiences, and in fact, I think I've made a few of cakes like that myself! What I love about a good Japanese cheesecake is that while in appearance it resembles a humble (and perhaps, plain or boring?) sponge cake, but the minute you put it into your mouth, you want to close your eyes and go 'hmmmmmmmmmmmmm'. We all go through phases, don't we?! Right out of the oven...hmmmmm.

How to Make Fancy Dipped Oreos You are going to love to make these. I've been making these fun dipped oreos with pattern tops for a while now and everyone wants to know how to make them and no one can believe how easy they are. There are a few different methods for making these kinds of oreos and I think I have gotten it down to the easiest method with the best result. I'm going to give you links to where you can buy the materials you need to make these and I'm writing this post early enough in case you want to do these for Christmas. I put a three-tiered plate stand out full of these last year on my Christmas Eve buffet in a variety of holiday patterns and they were really cute (and got devoured). You can make these oreos for any occasion because the patterned transfer sheets that you need come in all kinds of themes and colors. The chocolate transfer sheets can be found online from many places. this is what the transfer sheets look like Besides the chocolate transfer sheets, you need an Oreo mold .

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles Oh. My. God. If you could take perfection, roll it in a ball, and dip it chocolate, this would be it. I’m not joking here folks. I’d strongly advise you to put down the mouse and get your butt to the kitchen, stat. My apologies to the New Years’ resolution folk. The cookie dough itself is egg-free, and potentially dairy free AND vegan if you get picky about what you coat them with. Take it or leave it (but I strongly suggest you take it. Update: Since it was first posted in 2010, I’ve updated this recipe and included it in my new cookbook, The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook (Quirk Books, 2012). You may also like...

Patio Daddio BBQ: Pig Candy! How can you possibly go wrong with peppered bacon coated with dark brownsugar, baked, then glazed with pure maple syrup mixed with a little cayenne? Yeah, it's naughty good. The great folks at Burger's Smokehouse sent me some of their "crazy thick" (1/4") dry-cured bacon to try, so I thought I'd give it a proper treatment. Right out of the gate, let me say that this bacon is outstanding! Order some up, and thank me later. OK, if you've never made or experienced pig candy, strap yourself in for a serious porcine indulgence. Ingredients1 lb Thick-cut peppered bacon, preferably Burger's 1/2 cup Dark brown sugar (more as needed)1/4 cup Pure maple syrup1/4 tsp Cayenne MethodPreheat your oven to 375*. Mix the syrup and cayenne well in a small bowl and set aside. Coat both sides of each bacon slice generously with brown sugar. Arrange the bacon on a wire rack inside a sheet pan as shown. Note to self: Lining the sheet pan with parchment paper will greatly ease the clean-up.

homemade oreos Just before I left for the airport Monday morning, I stopped short and ran back inside, not because I forgot my power cord or business cards or anything normal like that, but to make myself a turkey sandwich. My flight left late, of course, and by the time I had time to unwrap my semi-smooshed last bit of home-cooked anything, I was so hungry, I was ready to ask the 18-month-old next to me to share one of his drooled-upon teething biscuits. Proust may have had his madeleine and my husband may have his pickled green tomatoes, but I had that turkey sandwich and in the one bite I allowed myself before the drink cart finally brought me something to wash it down with, I had found a happiness I didn’t know could exist at the front end of a much-dreaded three day business trip to a nine-acre enclosed glass pod. It was the best thing I ate for days. Oh, they’re good. And when finished? Hey, Look! Homemade Oreos Adapted from Retro Desserts, Wayne Brachman Makes 25 to 30 sandwich cookies
