Cherry Pie

Cherry Pie

On The Grill

Posted on February 14, 2017
Pi such an irrational number; it needs to be told it is special. That’s why there are so many days of the year dedicated to Pie. That is also why I made Cherry Pie On The Grill! National Cherry Pie Day is coming and instead of making lame math jokes, make yourself a delicious pie on your grill instead.

Japanese Hotcakes

Japanese Hotcakes

Gigantic Puffy Pancakes

Posted on January 24, 2017
Oh my goodness. (And I mean GOOD-ness!) My Instagram feed has been filled with these images of pancakes that were inches thick, stacked high and topped beautifully with fruit. Inspired by these beautiful images, I just had to try making Japanese Hotcakes myself! They’re sweeter than your typical, flat pancakes, they also look way cooler. The toughest part of making these is keeping the heat just right to allow them to cook all the way through. However, when you’re done and have a stack of these adorable hotcakes a mile high on your plate, you will be in hotcake-heaven.

Coffee & Caramel Brownies

Coffee & Caramel Brownies

Strong, warm, gooey, melty and chocolaty

Posted on January 17, 2017

Coffee & Caramel Brownies happened because I needed chocolate. You don’t understand. It’s not that I have a craving. It’s more like a requirement. At that moment in time, I required strong, warm, gooey, melty chocolate. So I decided to make brownies. 

Coffee brings out the best in chocolate 9 times out of 10, so obviously, I had to add some espresso powder to jazz things up a bit. Actually, I also added some plain greek yogurt to give these brownies even more oomph too. Then, to top everything off, I capped these brownies with a heaping helping of caramel sauce. The result? Delicious, strong, warm, gooey, melty chocolate brownies!

Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

with Ginger Infused Maple Syrup

Posted on January 11, 2017
The best thing about being an adult is that you can eat whatever you want for dinner. The other night, neither of us felt like eating a meal, meat and potatoes, pasta, nothing at all sounded good. You know what did though? Apple Crumble with Ginger Infused Maple Syrup. Fresh apples, sweet maple syrup with spicy ginger, and cinnamon, and top it all off with fresh ice cream for a delicious meal… I mean dessert!

Gingerbread

Gingerbread

Make a whole village of cookie people

Posted on December 14, 2016
Gingerbread is an integral part of the holidays, like lights, trees, and hot chocolate. Ever since I started working on this blog, I have wanted to do one thing. Make a Gingerbread Grill. Yes, a Napoleon Grill made of Gingerbread. My husband, a total genius, did the math and plotted out the parts, but in the end, the project was far too ambitious. The grill would have stood well over 24-inches tall! Instead, we opted to go with the more traditional Gingerbread Men, who turned out beautiful, delicious, and festive in their red jumpers.

NOTE* - You will want to use a stand mixer for this recipe unless you are very strong and have a lot of stamina. The dough gets pretty stiff near the end.

White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart

White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart

A Sweet Christmassy Treat

Posted on December 08, 2016
The idea for White Chocolate and Peppermint Tart came about shortly after making the  Chocolate & Espresso Tart. I was writing the recipe to share, and suddenly it hit me. What if I used white chocolate?! From there the recipe evolved as I considered what would taste great with the white chocolate. Initially, I had a vision of a beautiful white tart with swirls of green and crumbles of peppermint on top. Things went a little sideways when I accidentally overheated the white chocolate and it bound. (That means that chocolate went from this smooth and creamy mixture to a hard and grainy blob.) I was able to fix it a little, but the liquid separated out. To rescue this, I topped the whole thing with a layer of dark chocolate ganache. Feel free to make this look however you like, though. Swirl the white, dark, and mint chocolate together, or layer them all separately. It’s up to you and how you feel this dessert should look.

Smoked Cream Chocolate Mousse Cake

Smoked Cream Chocolate Mousse Cake

Subtly Smoky

Posted on November 30, 2016
My all time favorite dessert was Great Grandmother Hazel’s Chocolate Mousse. Fluffy, creamy, and it was only ever made around this time of year. It’s been a great many years since I’ve had homemade Chocolate Mousse, always being too scared to try making it myself. (All those eggs and double boilers and such were scary!) I decided that this year would be the year to get over a lot of food fears. To celebrate Chocolate Mousse day, I resolved to make a Smoked Cream Chocolate Mousse Cake that even Great Grandmother Hazel would be impressed by. I am certain, after tasting the results of this festive dessert, that she would have been… had we saved her a slice. Just remember to make this recipe at least 5 hours in advance of serving so that it has time to set.

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cake

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cake

With Reese Peanut Butter Cups

Posted on November 16, 2016
After another quiet Halloween, we ended up with a ton of chocolaty treats. What better way to use up leftover candy than to make a Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cake With Reese Peanut Butter Cups. This dense and rich cake is bracketed by light and fluffy layers of peanut butter icing, topped with chopped peanut butter cups and drizzled with silky ganache. This dessert was a little too much after a big turkey dinner, but you’ve got to go big when it comes to dessert!
