Recently a posted about how much I love chocolate desserts. However, Samuel generally prefers less-sweet desserts with fruit in them. Sounds easy right? Wrong. He’s pretty picky, whether he admits it or not. So, when I decided to make a delicious, apple crisp for dessert, I was surprised when Samuel said he wasn’t really a crisp fan. Well, I was determined to change his mind by making a perfect crisp.
Sometimes life can be complicated. You know what makes life uncomplicated? Easy recipes! I see no need to over-complicate recipes. I am a definite fan of simple, easy to follow recipes. And I know, some recipes just seem too easy. For example, this post highlights a classic cookie with minimal ingredients. How can you possibly make a delicious cookie with only 3 ingredients? There must be a trick. This has to be a trap, right? There is no need to make recipes harder than they need to be.
Sometimes the only fix for a sweet tooth is chocolate. I suppose, on rare occasion, chocolate desserts and sweets are not the answer to every single problem we face (should this happen to you frequently, consult a doctor immediately). For me though, I tend to go towards chocolate desserts more than fruity ones. This post is no exception to my chocolate rule. I wanted to make something chocolaty, rich, and delicious, preferably in a portable cake mode. Oh, but I didn’t want all those calories to go along with it.
In general, I’m a fan of soft cookies over crunchy cookies. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before. Anyway, soft, fluffy cookies are just delightful. I am not generally a fan of fruit in cookies. However, this cookie may be a delicious exception. This cookie is a great mixture of soft, cake-like texture and a nice pop of blueberry. Oh, did I mention it has a cream cheese glaze? There’s that too.
Happy February everyone! Also, happy Super Bowl Sunday! I will be posting some recipes this week from our Super Bowl snackingpalooza, but for now, I wanted to post something different. Have you ever seen recipes that are “copycat” ones, such as: copycat Red Lobster cheddar biscuits, Twinkies, Olive Garden bread sticks, etc.? Well this one post is similar to a copycat post. It’s just slightly different, but the flavors are the exact same. No bake Twix cookies. These taste like a Twix bar, but better.
Now, I’m not under the delusion that everyone will love all of my recipes on here. We all have different taste buds, which I appreciate. I certainly don’t like everything that Samuel likes. Having said that, I love posting interesting recipes that are fun and unique. I have really started enjoying trying new things in the kitchen since starting my blog in November. This recipe fall under that category. Will everyone like it? No. It’s different and definitely not the norm.
Sometimes simple is better. Not only are simple recipes less time consuming, they yield just as tasty foods. I decided I wanted to go a simple route for some cookies. I love baking, it’s really “my thing.” Therefore, I never got into no bake cookies. I can’t even remember if I’ve made them before. It just wasn’t a thing I would do. So, I decided to give them a try.
So, I don’t want you to judge me. This is another breakfast post. It also involves blueberries. I know I’ve been posting a lot of breakfast items lately. I even posted about a Blueberry Buttermilk Breakfast Cake a few days ago. This may be getting a little out of hand, but I promise I can change. I just can’t help it. The blueberry bug bit me this week. As you recall during my pumpkin-palooza in the fall, sometimes I just can’t help but make a few posts about ingredients I love. However breakfast/blueberry crazy I may be going, you shouldn’t resist this recipe. It’s pretty delicious.
I recently had one of those moments where I thought of something I haven’t eaten in a while and I just had to have it. Well, unfortunately for me I wanted ice cream. And ice cream isn’t very healthy for you. So, I pondered on this for a while and tried to get over my need for ice cream. Needless to say it didn’t work. So I started looking into making my own ice cream. Turns out, it’s hard to do without an ice cream maker or machine. I don’t have such a thing. So, I found a way to make it, and the only machine you need is a stand or hand mixer.
I feel as though I may have a problem. My love for breakfast pastries seems to be frequently appearing on my blog. It could be worse right? At least these are healthy breakfast sweets. But seriously, I can’t help myself. I’m at it again. This time, you’re in for a treat. This may be one of the most successful recipes I have ever made. It had rave reviews, and no left overs. Prepare yourselves.
