Syrup for pancakes and waffles at the grocery store can get pretty expensive by the bottle for something that's caramel color, corn syrup, and a few stabilizers and additives. There's no reason to buy it, even if you like the flavor—making your own at home is easy, gets you more syrup for the cost of your ingredients, and with this recipe, you can even doctor it up a bit to make a delicious breakfast treat. If you like the sweeter, smoother taste of sugar syrup, you can make your own at home that tastes just like the stuff you'll at the grocery store with some sugar, molasses, water, vanilla extract, and a dash of maple syrup. The full recipe from the folks at Savvy Housekeeping is at the link below, but even though it looks like a lot of ingredients to buy just to make pancake syrup, they're all good items to keep in a well-stocked pantry anyway. You could even swap out the vanilla for almond or hazelnut extract to change up the flavor.
Every once in a great while, I get a food wish from someone I admire and respect so much that I just can’t say no. This “Pad Thai” popcorn recipe was their latest request, and as always, I was more than thrilled to make this very influential person’s snack dream come true. Who is this mystery foodie? Me! I was channel surfing late one night, and caught the very tail end of a show featuring a hot spot in Charleston, SC, called The Gin Joint .
Everyone has that one food that they cannot resist, don't you agree? If you set a plate of warm chocolate-chip cookies in front of me, I will literally not be able to stop my hand from reaching out and taking one. So, the recipe I've been waiting to perfect my whole life is for the best chocolate chip cookies, hands down. Well, today, Aran from Cannelle et Vanille shares her recipe (complete with two secret ingredients!)... The Best Chocolate Chunk Cookies You'll Ever Have By Aran Goyoaga from Cannelle et Vanille
Trudno policzyć, ile miseczek tego deseru już zrobiłam. Ustawiałam je na blatach różnych kuchni, na różnych stołach, przed różnymi osobami. To jak Sezamie, otwórz się . Otwiera niemal każde serce i nie poznałam chyba jeszcze nikogo, kto stwierdziłby, że go nie lubi.
Picture this scene: it’s 8:30 in the evening. The sky is just starting to get dark outside your living room window. You ate a delicious, healthy and veggie-filled dinner a few hours ago and now you are ready to sit down to the most recent episode of So You Think You Can Dance and dive into a decadent plate of dessert. Oh wait, you have no dessert.
Bananas are an amazing fruit. All by themselves they can turn into creamy, delicious ice cream , and eaten alone they are a satisfying snack. But they also do wonders in baked goods: Bananas take the place of sugar, eggs and fat in these wondrously chewy, yummy snack bars. These bars have no added sugar, you can whip them up in just a few minutes, and they'll take care of breakfast, after-school snacks, and dessert.
For brownies: Preheat oven to 325°F. Fold 16-inch-long piece of foil to 8x16-inch strip; place in 8x8x2-inch metal baking pan, leaving overhang on 2 sides. Repeat with another sheet of foil in opposite direction, lining pan completely. Spray foil with nonstick spray.
I wanted one. Badly. The intoxicating sip of caffeine and the sweet taste of sugar, all blended together into a mixture of iced creamy goodness and designed to melt in your mouth. Yep, there’s nothing quite like the seductive taste of a Starbucks Frappuccino on a hot summer’s day. With my resolve kicked to the curb in favor of a self-indulgent caffeine hit, I walked into the nearest Starbucks with my wallet in hand.
Forgive me Lord for I have sinned. It has been less then 24 hours since I ate the last slice of this pie and I confess I would eat another. It’s sweet and gooey and oh so delicious, I can’t resist. The best way to avoid temptation is to stay away from it, so I got rid of the pie…..I ate it. :/ Not exactly the best example. Like a lot of my recipes and posts this was inspired by a food program. I was watching “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” and they featured a S’more Pie.
A year ago, I made s’mores from scratch and brought them to the Memorial Day barbecue on my friend Jocelyn’s roof , celebrating the thousands of other hottie uniformed types that had sailed in for Fleet Week . [I just spelled that "Weak." It's all so telling, innit?]
Hello there A Beautiful Mess readers, I'm Emma, Elsie's sister and the gal behind Food Coma . At Elsie's wedding last week I had the opportunity to try Nutella for the first time. Now I'm obsessed. So I've been trying to dream up different ways to use this magical new-to-me spread and I thought that in between two cookies might be the perfect place for Nutella. Along with on top of toast.
Iced coffee is my life. When I wake up, often around the time party animals on the west coast are just heading home, I start each day not with a cup of freshly brewed hot java, but with a tall, blessed glass of creamy iced coffee in a glass. I’ve been an iced coffee freakazoid for years and years.
Kids can be frustratingly picky eaters. They can also have highly entertaining quirks. My niece used to ask for pepperoni pizza and then proceed to discard all of the pepperoni. But don’t you dare suggest that she order plain cheese pizza!
These muffins are a good-bye kiss from my workhorse of an oven. The last hurrah. Although, not much to look at, I have a lot to thank it for. We've survived two cookbooks together, a thousand meals, and unlike some other stoves I've lived with - this one was easy-going, not particularly temperamental.
