 Peanut Brittle

Peanut Brittle

With Smoked Peanuts & Bacon

Posted on January 27, 2016
I just found out that there is a National Peanut Brittle Day. Naturally I had to make a brittle recipe to celebrate, but it had to be done on the grill! So I made Peanut Brittle With Smoked Peanuts & Bacon to celebrate. As you know, adding bacon to anything makes it at least 20% cooler and taste at least 50% better. You just have to try this recipe!

Oatmeal, Cranberry, Bacon, Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal, Cranberry, Bacon, Chocolate Chip Cookies

Perfect breakfast cookies

Posted on December 22, 2015
Oatmeal, Cranberry, Bacon, Chocolate Chip Cookies came from a desire to make a slightly themed Christmas Brunch. Theme was Bacon and Eggs, but we weren't planning on a sit-down meal. Rather we thought we would make finger foods that we could enjoy while conversing and opening gifts. These cookies aren't overly sweet, but the smokiness of the bacon, tartness of the cranberries, and the hit of chocolate creates a symphony of perfect cookiness.

Peanut Butter Bacon Balls

Peanut Butter Bacon Balls

Sound naughty, taste nice

Posted on December 15, 2015
This recipe began as a sad failure. Though not in the way you would expect. I tried to make the Vanilla Bean Shortbread using gluten free flour. The cookies ... well I don't know what they did. I rolled them, and cut them, and they just, kind of, melted. They didn't exactly get crispy. They definitely did not hold their shape. I peeled them off the cookie sheet after baking and placed them onto a plate where they proceeded to melt into some sort of blob of shortbread. I really didn't want to waste such delicious amounts of butter and sugar, but what was I going to do with a literal BLOB of cookie. Then I thought, why not add peanut butter, chocolate and bacon? Peanut Butter Bacon Balls were born. Think cake pops without sticks and with cookie instead of cake.

Vanilla Bean Shortbread

Vanilla Bean Shortbread

On The Grill

Posted on December 09, 2015
It's the holiday season and you can't celebrate without making cookies. So for National Cookie Day I made Vanilla Bean Shortbread. First thing you should know is that these cookies do not do well if you make them with Gluten Free flour. They melt into unidentifiable (yet delicious) blobs. Okay back on track. You have to chill these cookies before you roll and cut them, that's part of the secret. And trust me, they are delicious when done. I love shortbread.

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.
