I have a thing for chocolate chip cookies, but not just any chocolate chip cookies. They have to be loaded with chocolate with deliciously chewy center. I am glad Kelly of Just a Taste posted these, because these are just that! They take minutes to whip up and are so convenient to have in your freezer. I always make 2 batches and freeze what we don’t bake right away.[click to continue…]
Just the fact that Lemon Truffles are made of chocolate (cacao butter to be exact) should already have you drooling ( I know they had me), but in case it does not, let me tell you what else makes them special and unique. Of course I could have gone for the ‘blah’ coating of just powdered sugar, but we’re not ‘blah’ kind of people here, so the sugar coating has the oh-so-wonderful sourness from citric acid (vitamin C’s cousin), which balances out the sweetness of the white chocolate.
Yogurt is something my family absolutely loves. In fact we like all milk products, from regular milk, to buttermilk (with pan-fried potatoes, yum!), homemade fresh cheese, to sour cream (with borsh for example).
While I do not own a cow and can not get fresh milk, I do make my own fresh cheese, buttermilk and sour cream. Yogurt though, is something I made completely by accident.
Still haven’t decided what to make for Thanksgiving? How about you give this amazing cake a try! We all know how wonderful Ferrero Rocher candies are, so you don’t need me telling you that this cake is good!
First I saw this cake on Mom’sDish, but originally it was posted here. Thanks Natasha for the recipe!
As we approach the holidays we’re all looking for that one special gift. Be it a friend, a co-worker, a teacher or even a neighbor, no one can refuse buttery Toffee, generously layered with Dark Chocolate and Sprinkled with Almonds. Nicely stacked in a bag, and adorned with a ribbon your toffee just might be the most delicious gift they get this Holiday Season!
When if not now is the perfect time to make these delicious Caramel Apple Pie Pancakes? Apples are in season, ripe and overflowing with sweetness they are begging to be put in your grocery basket, and why not? With all the possibilities, from traditional Apple Pie, to Tarte Tatin, to Oven Roasted Apples, the possibilities are endless.
There’s definitely a place and time for an actual Apple Pie, but when that time is not now, you can always make my Buttermilk Pancakes, pair them with the Caramel Apple filling and for a moment pretend that you’re eating the pie itself…drizzle or drown your pancakes in caramel, it’s up to you!

I have posted a similar recipe before. This recipe does not use any cream cheese and the pastries are drizzled with lemon glaze. The particular batch seen on the picture, was made for a church function (and photographed with an Iphone, hence the picture quality) and I made sure to make them within 1 hour of serving, ensuring that these Cheesecake Danishes are crispy, flaky and fresh. I think we made close to 300 of these babies and I would not be exaggerating when I tell you that they were gone within, probably 15 minutes of being, they were that good!

Very fluffy, with sweet sugary coating these Doughnuts are a classic. Eating them as soon as they’re just cool enough to gobble down with the outside still crispy from frying, is truly a satisfying experience.
I might be a little late to the Crock Pot ball, but I finally got myself a Slow Cooker. The first thing that I did with it was make this tender, juicy and succulent Pepper Chicken. Asian Sweet sauce gave the Pepper Chicken that third dimension of flavor, rounding off the dish nicely. You should definitely give Pepper Chicken a try!
Cheesy Potato Gratin – it’s cheesy, it’s crispy, it’s melt-in-your-mouth tender…it’s unbelievable. Unbelievable how a splash of cream & a sprinkling of cheese can bring ordinary potatoes into something extraordinary. I think this dish has the potential to do more than just satisfy hunger for something gourmet, it has the potential to make any novice cook look like a chef, because it’s so simple a 5 year old can put it together.
