Just in time for Halloween, I thought I would share a sweet recipe. Even if you have more than enough candy this year, I think you’ll love this recipe. Continue reading
Copycat recipes seem to be gaining popularity among people. I have featured one on my blog a few months ago, No Bake Twix Cookies. This was one of my most successful and delicious recipes yet. Not to mention, these cookies definitely tasted like Twix bars, which was the whole point of a copycat recipe. So, I wanted to create another copycat recipe and share it with you all.
I enjoy dabbling with different recipes in my kitchen. Over the last few months of my blogging experience, I’ve had a lot of fun trying new things. One of the foods I’ve enjoyed focusing recipes around is tofu. Granted, I’ve only posted one other recipe with tofu in it, Chocolate Silken Mousse. This was one of the first recipes I ever posted on my blog. In the spirit of that recipe, I made a new recipe involving tofu and chocolate.
Following my candy-making tradition at Christmas, I decided I wanted to make some candies for Easter. I haven’t attempted making Easter candy before, but really how hard could it be? Answer: really not that difficult at all. I stuck to making easy candy treats that could be easily made for any occasion. So, I present you with candy number one- the Oreo truffle.
I love sweet breads. I’m not talking about the meat sweet breads, but actual breads that are sweet. I just felt I needed to clarify this. Anyway, I have made two sweet breads before on this blog. I made a Banana Bread and Pumpkin Bread. Both of these breads were a hit. I wanted to add another sweet bread to this collection. You can never have too many breads that are perfect for breakfast and dessert.
So, I feel like I owe an apology. I’ve said some things I now regret. Back in January I said some really hurtful things. Now I need to apologize, and I hope you will forgive me, oatmeal raisin cookie. On my Pumpkin, Chocolate, & Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies post, I said some mean things about the oatmeal raisin cookie. Now I feel bad. I called the oatmeal raisin cookie boring and less successful than other cookies. I hope oatmeal raisin will forgive me.
Lately I have been exploring different ingredients in my baking. I started to use Truvia Baking Blend in place of sugar and Splenda. I really, really love this switch to Truvia. I then started to look into different swaps with ingredients. I have been swapping apple sauce in place of oil in quite a few of my recipes. Now, I am starting to swap out butter and oil for Greek yogurt. I have to say, so far I am impressed. I made this successful swap in my Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies, and those were delicious. So I wanted to give you another yummy recipe featuring Greek yogurt.
Each month I have made a dessert featuring peanut butter. I’ve posted about Easy Peanut Butter Fudge, No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, and 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies. Far be it for me to stand in the way of you all receiving another peanut butter dessert. This recipe is yet another peanut butter cookie. However, it is far different from the normal cookie. It contains a wonderful ingredient which adds intrigue. If you are looking for a delicious peanut butter cookie with a little hidden pizzazz, you have come to the right place.
You know I’m a dessert fiend. No need to go through this again in great detail. If I had to rank desserts, it would go: cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and then pies (with other desserts thrown into the lineup as well). I wanted to focus on a cookie for this blog. My favorite cookie would have to be chocolate chip. I have made Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate Chip Potato Chip Cookies on here before. Both of these recipes rock. So I wanted to add in another chocolate chip cookie recipe that is slightly different and still low in calories.
I haven’t posted a tasty dessert in a few days now. This may be surprising to those who know me. I know not everyone feels the same way I do about desserts, so I have been working hard on diversifying my blog. However, a while ago I was working hard on creating a delicious low calorie brownie option. I have posted one other brownie recipe before, Chickpea Brownies, but I know beans in chocolate isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. So I wanted to make a “normal” brownie recipe that was easy to do and yielded delicious results.
