Peanut Butter M&M Cheesecake

Peanut Butter M&M Cheesecake

With Brownie Crust

Posted on December 02, 2015
After Halloween, we somehow managed to have candy left. I needed to make sure that it was used in a manner fitting of such strong, warrior-like candy. It survived being eaten for over a week after the costumed children came to pillage! Not to mention that this house contains not one but TWO chocoholics! Anyway, as a fitting memorial of our first Halloween with trick or treaters, and candy that survived longer than a week, I made this prestigious, layered confection of Peanut Butter M&M Cheesecake. It was good.

Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake

With Sugar Cookie Crust

Posted on November 19, 2015
**This recipe makes 2 pies!**

Thanksgiving and autumn are a time for cozy foods and pumpkin flavored everything. I will admit that I have never liked even the thought of something pumpkin flavored, however I thought that it was about time that I finally acquiesced and made something pumpkin. Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake With Sugar Cookie Crust was actually very good. I will admit to being skeptical, but it turned out that the taste reminded me of gingerbread for some reason. Anyway. Thanksgiving needs Pumpkin Pie, so here you go. Sort of.

Apple Cider Donuts

Apple Cider Donuts

With Cinnamon Sugar Dust

Posted on November 03, 2015
National Donut day is coming fast, and you can't celebrate without having donuts. As we're currently obsessed with Angry Orchard Apple Cider, Apple Cider Donuts seemed like the next, perfectly logical step. Like my first attempt at Homemade Donuts, I made these for us, and a couple friends, this time, there was only one left. 

These donuts are slightly cakey, but fried and crunchy on the outside with a light fluffy interior that reminds me of those tiny donuts that you get in the mall. You know the ones. I tossed them in a cinnamon and sugar mixture, mostly because I ran out of time to do a glaze, but it worked out really well, giving a little extra texture to these delicious donuts.

Maple Walnut Apple Crisp

Maple Walnut Apple Crisp

Sweet Autumn Dessert

Posted on October 27, 2015
I found honey crisp apples in the grocery, they were beyond gigantic. I mean I have a teacup that holds 2 cups and they were bigger than that. I bought these apples for a different recipe, but wound up with more apple innards then I knew what to do with. So I made Maple Walnut Apple Crisp. Sweet, overloaded with syrup and cinnamon, crunchy walnut bits everywhere. Top that with cream cheese icing, yogurt, or whipped cream and you have a dessert made in Autumn Heaven.

Autumn Baked Brie

Autumn Baked Brie

With Apples, Cinnamon, Pecans, and Cranberries

Posted on October 15, 2015
Autumn Baked Brie With Apples, Cinnamon, Pecans, and Cranberries is a cheesy, gooey, delight. Feel's kind of high brow, and can be served as an appetizer with wine, or as a dessert, with wine. I guess you don't have to serve it with wine, but yeah. The wheel was a buffalo brie from Prince Edward County. It wasn't strong like brie cheese tends to be, but mild and salty, pairing beautifully with the sweetness of the apples and brown sugar, and the tartness of the cranberries.

Easy Apple Blooms

Easy Apple Blooms

Fresh apple pastries off the grill

Posted on October 15, 2015
This recipe started with me seeing some crazy 30 second video on Facebook. Easy Apple Blooms looked - just that - easy! But I couldn't just do what I saw online. No! I needed to take it up a notch. Make these things the most amazing pastry thingadooeys that you have ever put in your pie-hole! And I did. Cinnamon, lemon juice, and cream cheese icing take these from pretty apple pies to some sort of danish delight. Try these with your leftover pastry next time you bake.

Spiced Carrot Cake

Spiced Carrot Cake

With Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on October 06, 2015
You can't finish your perfect Thanksgiving meal without dessert, and what better way to usher in autumn than with Spiced Carrot Cake With Cream Cheese Icing! Imagine a dense cake, scenting the air with the fragrance of fall, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg. It's moist but not crumbly. It's perfectly topped with thick layers of sweet cream cheese icing. This is a cake to remember and could you believe that I made it on the grill?

 

Baking time varies widely from cake pan to cake pan, so I recommend checking at the 20 to 25 minute mark, and every 5 to 7 minutes afterwards. My cake pan was 6x6x3-inches and it took nearly 45 minutes for the cake to be completely done.

Peaches And Cream Cupcakes

Peaches And Cream Cupcakes

With Peach Drizzle

Posted on August 25, 2015
It's peach season. It's CNE* season too. Summer is winding down, not that this prevents me from grilling in any way, and in homage to both peach season and the CNE, I have made a portable and peachy dessert that you will love. These Peaches And Cream Cupcakes With Peach Drizzle, were light, and sweet, and definitely easy to make. 

*CNE is the Canadian National Exhibition, Canada's largest fair, with the best and most wackiest street food, rides and vendors from everywhere. It's a big deal.

Grilled S'mores Poutine

Grilled S'mores Poutine

Even better than it sounds

Posted on August 12, 2015
While eating dinner at my Grandparents' home, we were discussing different kinds of poutine. Then, out of nowhere, Grilled S'mores Poutine just kind of popped out of our mouths. The idea snowballed until we couldn't contain it any longer. But why would we want to? Graham cookie "fries" topped with marshmallow "cheese curds" and topped with chocolate ganache "gravy"? I have chills just typing about it. This will be a hit the next time you have a sleepover I can guarantee.

Red Velvet Cheesecake

Red Velvet Cheesecake

With Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on July 28, 2015
I don't need a reason to have cheesecake. I could have cheesecake every day, no matter what. That's probably why there are more than ten recipes for cheesecake, or cheesecake related desserts on this blog. Red Velvet Cheesecake With Cream Cheese Icing seemed like the next logical step in cheesecake recipe making. I had two reasons to make this. One, it's National Cheesecake Day, and you HAVE to have cheesecake on National Cheesecake Day, and two, I wanted to make something special for a friend who really helped us out. In both I believe that I've succeeded because dang! This cheesecake was amazing.
