S’more Bars May 14th, 2012 I love s’mores, but they are awfully messy. No matter how I eat them, I always end up with strands of melted marshmallow all over my chin and caked in my hair. Planting A Pineapple Did y’all know that you can take this and turn it into… This? And that this will eventually produce… This? Date, Apricot and Walnut Loaf…or is it cake? You don’t need to ‘use your loaf’ to make this one, it’s very simple, very nutritious, a great breakfast and quite tasty too. We ran out of bread and milk yesterday and had nothing to ‘rustle up’ quickly, apart from beans (which you don’t always fancy at 7am). In order to make up for this hungry/starvation morning, I thought I’d try my hand at a new breakfast loaf recipe, something we could take to work and heat up there. Something with some fruit and nuts….and not Cadbury. I found the recipe on trusty old ‘Food 52’ website, it was an adaption from Diana Henry’s ‘A Change of Appetite’, which I then adapted again – only very slightly – adding some white flour with the wholemeal, more cider and a tad more sugar.
Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries - StumbleUpon Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. For the cake portion, I chose a One Bowl Chocolate Cupcake recipe because 1. it's quick 2. it is easy, and 3. it fits my prerequisite for a light ending on date night. Oreo and Peanut Butter Brownie Cakes So, after being gone all last week, this has been catch up on the house week. Mostly laundry actually. Man, who knew that a weeks worth of laundry from 5 people could be so daunting. Yikes!! But I am kind of behind on my cooking and baking as well since I've been gone and cleaning.
Cookie Dough Dip Go put on your stretchy pants. Seriously. Do it now. Some days, I find that certain recipes speak to me. Better-Than-Crack-Brownies, Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles, Cake Batter Bark… those things excite me. This only has happened a handful of times and when I find or create a delicious recipe that I am so passionate about, I can hardly wait to share it with all of you.

Doughnut Muffins I am not really a doughnut fan; however, I do love me some muffins. I especially adore big muffins with gorgeous domed crowns. When I came across this recipe on King Arthur Flour, I knew they would be a perfect grab and go breakfast. So, I whipped them together, but kicked them up a notch by drenching them in a sweet doughnut glaze. Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread — Joy the Baker - StumbleUpon I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair. Baked Egg Boat recipe Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating. I like eating potatoes with ketchup. I like eggs over easy, and fluffy scrambled eggs. I pretty much like everything there is to like about breakfast.
