That being said, I will be bringing these fun Lemon Drop Jell-O Shots. I also made limes and oranges, but they didn’t make it in the final picture. No recipe, just a few notes and the step-by step pictures (using a lime) to making these Jell-O shots.

Unfettered F-U-N . . . Rainbow Jelly Shooter! Rainbow Jelly Shooter Its been a whirlwind at the test kitchen. The book is progressing (crossing fingers that it is going to press in early December!), we have been working on a little something (three little somethings, actually) for Saveur.com, and about a million more actions items cropping up here and there, many of which have not received appropriate attention and are currently housed in a bin marked "anxiety provoking". One of the highlights of our week was a lovely chat with Erin over at Tablespoon.com, who mentioned that they were hosting a Double Rainbow Week, which sounded like such fun! So, when the weekend rolled around, rather than trolling cocktail books for jelly shot inspiration, we decided it was high time for a bit of unfettered f-u-n . . . I love the "rainbow" gelatin technique - borrowed from the popular recipe for kids' finger gelatin. Cheers, Michelle Rainbow Jelly Shooter Suggested pan: 9" x 13" cake pan, or molds Yield: about 45 jelly shots Red Layer Yellow Layer

Cake Batter Chocolate Bark I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to share a recipe with you. Or to lick a bowl. The secret ingredient here? You may think I’m crazy… but it’s a spoonful of actual cake mix. All you must do is whisk it well into the melted white chocolate. Best decision ever. The truth is, I’ve never been much of a “bark” person. After laying on the couch slurping butter-soaked shrimp scampi, plowing through a bag of m&m’s and watching 7 hours of Lifetime television, I had my answer: cake batter. And I didn’t want to just make white chocolate bark. Did you know I have an obsession with sprinkles? I’d put them on everything if I could. Cake Batter Chocolate Bark 6 ounces high quality dark chocolate (I used Lindt 70%) 12 ounces high quality white chocolate (I used Lindt) 3 teaspoons yellow cake mix sprinkles of your choice (at least 3 tablespoons worth or more) Melt dark chocolate either in the microwave or a double boiler. Melt while chocolate. Once set, break into chunks.

Chocolate brownie cookies Not more than a few days ago I had my Mother's Blessing. The women in my life gathered to share their stories of motherhood and to give me strength (and many freezer meals) when the time comes that I too will experience the journey of birth. We talked and laughed over mugs of hot chocolate and bowls of plump, cerise strawberries. My husband and I also gave a bead and the following blessing to our unborn child; I wish for you to find strength when days seem dark. I wish for you to be warmed by happiness as the Earth is warmed by the sun. And lastly, I wish for you to find love as your father and I did. After a day filled with sweetness, it ended with a glass of milk and the most delicious morsel of a cookie. ease: 4/5. prep time: 25mins. cooking time: 8mins. total: 33mins. taste: 4/5. I first made these beauties almost 3 years ago and yet I never forgot them, and am quite uncertain as to why I waited so long to make them again!

Rose Cake Tutorial SO excited to share with you how easy it is to make the rose cake. Seriously, once you see you are going to run right out, buy a 1M tip, and make one. That or go back to work. Or bed. Or whatever it was you were doing before I interrupted you. Ok, here we go! There were two main components to this cake. The vertical layer interior and the frosting rose exterior. I am going to do a vertical layer tutorial at a different time, (updated: you can see it HERE) as I did not get any pictures of it this go around and it is IMPOSSIBLE to explain without pictures. Now for the frosting rose tutorial! I promise you, this could NOT be easier. (I need to mention... before I froze my cake I poured a simple syrup over it. Start with your cake. Put your 1M tip (or any large open star tip) into the pastry bag then fill it up with buttercream frosting. If you have an appropriately sized coupler you can use that, or you can just insert the tip into the bag and cut off the excess. At least, I hope so anyway. :) 1.

The Last Course: The Desserts of Gramercy Tavern Random House Food You Can Make in a Coffee Maker Like so many before me, I was once hungry in college. With term papers looming and the dining hall already closed for the night, food had to come from somewhere. That was the night I learned to make ramen in my coffee maker. At first I was nervous, pouring the hot water over noodles in my bowl, covering them, and letting it steep. This was cheap food prepared in as cheap a manner as possible. 1. Put two packets of instant oatmeal into the carafe. A dead simple recipe, but with the twist of adding a tea bag for flavor. 2. Fill a coffee filter with six broccoli florets. Clever coffee maker cooks will find a way to whip up a cheese sauce to go with this. 3. Put 1/2 cup of instant rice per person in the coffee maker. Rice cookers are for squares. 4. Place the eggs in the coffee pot. Several commenters observed that if it is possible to poach eggs in a coffee maker, other foods could easily be poached. 5. Place chicken breast in coffee maker. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. (image via briefpenguin)
