Minty Fresh

Minty Fresh

Better than Nanaimo Bars

Posted on February 19, 2013

You need to use some decent quality chocolate, and fresh too. You can see in the image above that the chocolate has gone a little grainy. Most of the reason is due to the fact that I was using a low quality, old chocolate..and they were chips. Another factor that makes this happen is too much heat. If your water is boiling and not simmering happily, this can also happen (too hot – too fast) I recommend that you keep this in the freezer when not being eaten as it tends to get kind of melty. Also when sending it in lunches, wrap it tight so that the minty fresh stays between the layers. Thin mints beware, there is a new player in town and this is it! These have a habit of disappearing before anyone can get their hands on them.They’re also Stormageddon approved. (That’s the cat’s name)

Cheesecake Brownies

Cheesecake Brownies

and They're low Cal!

Okay. So .. not only do these have some protein and fibre and all that healthy stuff in them, they’re unbelievably tasty too! I am really on this greek yogurt kick, and you really cannot blame me! This stuff is a great replacement for sour cream in just about everything, you can put it in smoothies, flavour and freeze it for some fro-yo (which is not cursed)…and well yeah, it’s just good. Sorry distracted, brownies, oh so good brownies. Less calories than those chemically enhanced snack pack low cal thingys you get in the grocery, and you can send them in lunches, the husband and kids and well everyone won’t know that they’re more healthy than the “other” ones. Seriously you can’t go wrong with these brownies. **Applesauce. I don’t have applesauce frequently, just something that I never get. But if you run across a need for applesauce and don’t have any, cut a small-ish, about 3″ across, apple and core it. Leave it in the skin and microwave it for about 40 to 45 seconds. This will mush-i-fy the insides, just scrape them out into whatever you’re baking or need the applesauce for. This makes about ¼ cup.

Black Forrest Cake

Black Forrest Cake

with Cherries and Cream

These cupcakes turned out very well, everyone who tried them was surprised when they found the cherry filling. This recipe is also easy to adjust to your own needs too. Add chocolate chips, use cake pans instead, you get the idea, you can even change up the filling if you wanted to - fudge, strawberries - you get the idea.

Deep Fried Cheesecake

Deep Fried Cheesecake

With Chocolate Chips and Strawberry Puree

Posted on January 21, 2013
I served these at a party, there were a lot of wontons and only 7 of us, and trust me, they were GONE! A smash hit and worth the effort. The number of wontons depends on the number and size of the wontons in the package you buy.

Oatmeal Date Muffins

Oatmeal Date Muffins

on the Grill

Okay. So I have taken into account the temperature and time that was wonky, now for the substitutions and such. As always, you can use white flour instead of whole wheat. You can add walnuts or pecans to the batter or top the muffins for a hit of protein and crunch. Feel free to soak the dates in boiling water with 1 tsp of baking soda, for an hour before draining them and adding them to the wet ingredients instead of the dry. This will break down the dates making them an integrated part of the batter, not a chunk like raisins. You can also add raisins, chocolate chips or some other little tasty tidbit as well.

Even though these came out burnt, I loved the way that the light was hitting them as I made my coffee. So I took photos anyway. It’s okay to get messy when cooking. You can make mistakes, that is how new recipes come about.

Grilled White Cake

Grilled White Cake

with Strawberries and Cream

This cake was so super simple to make, it came together fast and baked up perfectly. It tasted like a white birthday cake, with a hint of angle food. This is definitely a great base cake that you can add to to create something spectacular. Double the recipe for layers, add food dye for colours, add essence of mint, chocolate, orange or almond for a completely different flavour. Definitely great for a quick dessert like mock strawberry shortcake.

Honey Cake

Honey Cake

with Grilled Apple Topping

This sweet cake is fantastic, and seems to get better with age. You can get some very different flavours happening depending on the type of honey that you use for this recipe as well. Clover, or chestnut honey will give a completely different taste to this cake than generic or lilac honey. I hope that you enjoy this cake as much as I did.

This recipe turned out better than I could have imagined. In fact someone begged for the recipe the day after I made it! I wrote it down in haste and ended up giving them the only written copy. Fortunately she copied it for me and emailed it back, so now I can share it with everyone. Hope you enjoy it!Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Try different kinds of nuts to mix things up, let me know how it goes!
