I’ve avoided calling it a baking blog because I didn’t want to be stuck in a theme (after being stuck in one for the first year of my blog – wondering why it’s called 52 Kitchen Adventures? See the “about” section to learn more ). I know it doesn’t a label but it’s hard to give a concise description when someone asks what the blog is about. And since I’ve always loved baking and have a big sweet tooth, I end up making and blogging about desserts a lot (here are all my cupcake recipes and general dessert recipes ). I think I might start calling it a baking blog (with other recipes thrown in the mix). I made these cupcakes for a coworker to celebrate some of her recent accomplishments.
Last weekend a friend I decided to neglect our school work and go for a hike in the snow followed by dinner and a movie at my house. I had all the ingredients on hand for some tasty Corn and Cheese Chowder which was perfect way to warm up after a cold hike. My friend said she’d be in charge of bringing ingredients for us to make dessert and I was so excited to see that she’d picked out these truffles! Eating the cookie dough is usually one of the best parts of making cookies, but then you feel bad because you’re supposed to be making cookies- not snacking on the dough! These cute little truffles taste just like cookie dough and since they don’t have any eggs, they’re totally safe to eat. These can be decorated in all sorts of creative ways and they’ll look like a suitable ‘grown up’ dessert, even though you’re eating cookie dough!

And after developing this Watermelon and Tomato Gazpacho recipe, I was excited to mix up watermelon and cilantro again. Enjoy this sorbet with some champagne. 6 cups fresh watermelon 1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped 1. Carefully cut your watermelon in half.
Cute & Easy Mini Santa Hat Brownies Noreen December 17, 2011 *Post Edit:- I had forgotten to mention the step where the sugar goes in the recipe image below….as pointed out by several people in the comments. So, Add the sugar when you melt the chocolate in the butter. =) I have now edited the image to include that and I hope this clears things up. Sorry again for the accidental omission. Makes: 48 mini muffin sized brownies or 24 regular muffin sized brownies.

As I mentioned on Friday, I have been doing some experimentation with the beer and chocolate combination. The Guinness-chocolate ice cream that I made totally kicked butt, so I couldn’t wait to see how I liked beer and chocolate in my cake. The answer? I like it, a whole heck of a lot. This was my first time doing Guinness-chocolate cakes, and I was totally optimistic that I would love it, and I was definitely right.
I’ve tried lots of brownie recipes: Boxes, scratch, frosted, plain, nuts, chips, fudge … Each of them has something to like, but depending on my mood I might want a change of pace. Not any more. My wife found this recipe, and it’s perfect. I’m done looking.
My family is kind of crazy. Our life is essentially one giant musical, we are constantly singing. Any word or phrase can set us off. You say close your eyes? We start singing The Bangles “Close your eyes...give me your hand, darling!”
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Can I just say that I have died and gone to heaven. Cheesecake stuffed strawberries….how have I not made these before?! I’m serious.
The USDA released its new food pyramid the other day (which is actually a plate now instead of a pyramid), and I am sorely disappointed to report that cinnamon rolls did not appear anywhere on that plate. I think by now most of us know what should be on our dinner plate in terms of healthy, well-rounded nutrient-laden meals, but it is my considered opinion that our breakfast plate should include cinnamon rolls now and then. And not just any cinnamon roll, mind you, but how ‘bout a homemade cinnamon roll hybrid that is a cross between a cinnamon roll and cinnamon toast, is super easy to make and gosh darn delicious.

Once I started making an effort to eat seasonally, I realized that apples were my best bet for a large part of the year. By the end of winter, I’m impatient for strawberries to kick off the farmer’s market season. I try to avoid apples in the spring and summer, because it’s nice to take a break when I can, and then I get to look forward to them in the fall. So I didn’t want to make the apple version of this dessert.
