To all the chocolate lovers in the house… This is for you. It all starts with the brownie batter – this is seriously one of my favorite chocolate batter mixes ever.

Use your trusty 1.5 tbsp scoop to drop spoonfuls of brownie batter onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze overnight. The next day, get ready to bake the best chocolate cupcakes ever.

The Brownie Project Rainbow Cake recipe @Not Quite Nigella I have always found rainbows beautiful. Usually because when I see them I'm usually out and about and cursing the rain and its effect on my shoes but then a rainbow suddenly appears and instantly everything is all right with the world again. I think "Oh yes that's right, _that _was what we were all waiting for!". I was snapping a picture of a rainbow while shopping on Oxford Street and a group of chic fashionistas walked past me holding bags that weighed more than they did. I was inspired by the Zebra Cheesecake that I made a few months ago. I almost wished that I hadn't iced it because the effect of the cake by itself is pretty enough as it is. So tell me Dear Reader, do you stop and admire rainbows? To decorate Fondant in the colours of your choice Mini white marshmallows Step 1 - Preheat the oven to 325°F/160°C and put a rack in the centre. Step 2 - Beat the butter and sugar in an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Don't forget to mix it up really well! To assemble

How To Make Brown Sugar Buttercream Frosting This was my first time making any kind of buttercream frosting, and it was ridiculously easy. And it was Oh My God good. We’re thinking of making another batch and just eating it as a dip with fresh fruit. Ingredients 1 cup milk 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1½ cup brown sugar 1 cup butter (2 sticks) 1 tablespoon vanilla 1 teaspoon salt (if you use unsalted butter) Directions Stir the milk and flour together and mix over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, until it thickens. Set the milk aside to cool, and combine the sugar, butter and vanilla in a mixer. Beat on medium speed for 5-10 minutes — colder butter will take longer — until the sugar is dissolved and you don’t taste the graininess of it any more. Add the milk mixture to the butter mixture and stir until smooth. The finished texture is surprisingly light and fluffy, considering what went into it. I’ll be back soon with the banana cake this went on. Yes that’s right, not banana bread: banana cake. Brown Sugar Buttercream Frosting Ingredients

Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies Recipe-Martha Stewart Cookies Posted by Grace Massa Langlois on Tuesday, 26th October 2010 Martha does it again with Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies, a simple cookie recipe that delivers flavour and texture in a big way. I can’t say that I am a big fan of gingerbread cookies but my kids love them! This cookie has a wonderful combination of fresh and ground ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, molasses, and my favourites, cocoa and semisweet chocolate chunks. My favourite thing about baking gingerbread cookies is the sweet, spicy smell of ginger and cinnamon wafting throughout the house. Put away your rolling pin and cookie cutters! Rolling the cookies in sugar just prior to baking gives it a sweet crunch and a wonderful contrast to the moist, spicy interior. This is a sophisticated gingerbread cookie with a spicy zing that adults will love. (from Martha Stewart, Cookies) Makes 2 Dozen Comments (26) Leave a Reply

evil chef mom: cheese fritters with balsamic sun-dried tomato dipping sauce Don't these look better than fried mozzarella sticks that you get at T.G.I. McFuglies? Come on they have fresh thyme sprinkled all over the top. That's called classing up the joint right there. And while I am writing about these make sure you use whole milk ricotta. Don't even think about using skim milk ricotta. Make sure to do this assembly line style. Then dip the cheese balls (teehee, I am well aware I have the mentality of a 12 year old boy) into flour. Then into the egg. Then have them take a roll in the panko crumbs. Viola! cheese fritters: adapted from everyday italian 1 1/2 cups fresh whole milk ricotta 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 cups panko (Japanese bread crumbs) 3 large eggs 3/4 cup all-purpose flour vegetable oil, for frying a few sprigs of thyme lemon In a small bowl combine the ricotta, mozzarella, salt, and pepper. Meanwhile heat 3 inches of vegetable oil in a large skillet to 350 degrees F. ShareThis
