A delicious bowl of yogurt and granola is the perfect pick-me-up! It’s great for breakfast, lunch or dessert… Continue reading
Chocolate and Peanut Butter are a favorite combo of many….these chocolate brownies are great on their own, but pop on some fluffy peanut butter frosting and you’ve got the Wow factor!
Over the past week my nephew Michael was staying with us (Heidi’s son actually!) and he and my sons wanted something cold and sweet…this is what I came up with for dessert! It was so light and fluffy with a delightful chocolate flavor… Continue reading
Mole Poblano is an ‘old fashioned’ Mexican sauce that goes way, way back. It’s not as popular as it once was (so I’m told) and I’m not sure why…because it’s truly a great sauce! The combination of the heat of chipotle pepper and the sweetness of chocolate is perfect together. I usually serve my Chicken Mole Poblano with a delicious Coconut Rice. Give it a go – I think you’ll be surprised not only with how easy it is to make, but how truly flavorful this sauce really is! Continue reading
These little treasures are great to make and have in the fridge for a plethora of occasions. I serve them at dinner parties and give them as gifts in pairs every Valentine’s Day to friends and family. Today I made 40 of them for a bridal shower as a favor to take home and bake… but of course my Hubby and I had to have a little sample so I could show you how awesome and easy they are… (now there are only 38). The best part is they can be stored uncooked in the fridge for several months and you can pop them in the oven any time you want one. Here, have a bite… Continue reading
This Saturday morning I was craving something warm and baked for breakfast. After baking these Buttermilk Blueberry & Chocolate Muffins I ate two…the remaining muffins were scarfed down so quickly by my sons and their friends that before I even blinked they were gone! Thank goodness I got to them first… Continue reading
Remember how I love Tres Leches Cake? I consider it the best cake in the world…but…I also love chocolate. Just about anything chocolate! So I said to myself, “Self, why not combine the two?” And of course, myself answered “Why not?!” It was a great combination for a dessert! So, here’s my take on a Chocolate Tres Leches… Continue reading
Dessert? What about Brownies…warm chocolately goodness! These brownies are absolutely delicious. They’re wonderful all by themselves, but I topped ours with Salted Caramel Ice Cream. Extra Yummy! Continue reading
A few months ago we were invited to a wine & cheese party at a friend’s house. Everyone was to bring a wine and appetizer or dessert from a certain country or region. My husband and I chose the Lombardia/Piedmont regions in Northern Italy. We brought along some fabulous Nebbiolo, from the Piedmont region, which borders the Lombardia region on the west. And since I knew that Mascarpone cheese was made in the Lombardia region I wanted to find a dessert that complimented the wine. After searching for a while I found a chocolate cake that used mascarpone in its icing. The cake was flourless, and I had never made a flourless cake before, but I decided to give it a try. Boy am I glad I did…it was absolutely delightful!
When I made the cake back in February my boys could only take a peek – no bites for them! So last night I made it again so they could taste it too…they loved it…and so will you! Continue reading
