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.

Strawberry season is a magical time of year when the ripe, fresh berries fill many a basket with their sweet scent.

It's super easy, there's no ice cream maker required at all, and everyone will LOVE it.

Rustic Strawberry Pie

Rustic Strawberry Pie

On The Pizza Stone

Posted on July 02, 2015
It's strawberry season and I'm over the whole Strawberry Shortcake thing, so I decided to make a Rustic Strawberry Pie on my Pizza Stone, and boy was it ever delicious! In fact these awesome strawberry recipes over the past week have been so amazing, even my picky husband is enjoying them, and he doesn't like strawberries - only because of the seeds - so that's saying something. The pastry for this recipe is super easy and I will be making it again for other pies. Just remember that it needs to chill for an hour before use.

Strawberry Quesadillas

Strawberry Quesadillas

With Cheesecake Ice Cream

Posted on June 30, 2015
It's strawberry season. I guess that's my favorite holiday. YES it should be a holiday. And there should be holiday dedicated to bacon, and one for cheesecake too. But I digress. These Strawberry Quesadillas With Cheesecake Ice Cream are insane. And by insane we have blow your mind, melt your brain, oh my gosh that's delicious, and what the heck was she thinking all wrapped up in a delicious tortilla, then tossed on the grill with fresh chocolate STUFF (somewhere between a sauce, and a ganache and a chocolate shell), and all of the strawberries. Oh yeah, then we topped it with HOMEMADE cheesecake ice cream.

Sticky Rum Pudding

Sticky Rum Pudding

With Cream

Posted on June 16, 2015
Sticky Rum Pudding With Cream was inspired by a visit last weekend with the Husband's Granny. We were making fun of my lower than average tolerance of alcohol, and her amazing rum cake that I managed to get drunk off of, all while enjoying a restaurant's version of Sticky Toffee Pudding. I had this brilliant idea to make the cake in little bundt tins, not the full sized one, and have individual, beautiful, little puddings. Their middles would be filled to overflowing with the Sticky Toffee sauce, and you would top it all with cream. So imagine, if you will, a perfect marriage of a rum and date cake with a boozy toffee sauce, served hot, with ice cold cream on top. Let's just say we were all right happy at the end of the evening.

Nectarine Crumble

Nectarine Crumble

In A Cast Iron Skillet

Posted on June 09, 2015
Usually my go to comfort dessert is Apple Crisp, but we were out of apples. So I opted to use nectarines instead, and thus Nectarine Crumble In A Cast Iron Skillet was born. This dessert comes together pretty quickly and the end result smells and tastes beautiful. Placing the still steaming fruit onto a bed of fresh vanilla bean ice cream just takes these nectarines to the next level. Now I bet you're wondering, what happens if I have a bad batch of nectarines? Well I actually DID have a bad batch, they weren't juicy, but pasty when they're ripe. If that's the case, this dessert will take these horrible and tasteless fruits and turn them into a dessert fit for kings, and queens, and little princes or princesses.

Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Glorious circles of bacon-chocolate goodness

Posted on June 03, 2015
Last week we posted a recipe for Bacon Bourbon Chocolate Chip Cookies on our Facebook page. It was a re-share of a share - well you know how it goes, but I want to thank the Recipe Girl for the original recipe which you will find here!! Basically I couldn't not try making these. I did not make them Gluten Free and they were enough to entice someone who shouldn't be eating gluten to eat at least five cookies! She told me later that it was well beyond worth it. The husband's co-workers? Totally beyond jealous. Seriously. Grown men, carpenters, openly weeping as he eats the cookies in front of them, smirking.
