Chocolate & Espresso Tart

Chocolate & Espresso Tart

Decadent, rich, and the perfect balance of bitter and sweet.

Posted on November 02, 2016
I made this Chocolate & Espresso Tart as part of a menu for some VIP’s. It seemed like the perfect finish to an already rich meal, consisting of an autumn salad and Duck Pizza. I had a little difficulty with the texture of the chocolate. So, remember when you make your own, to be careful when melting the chocolate, not to heat it too hot, too fast. Strange things happen to chocolate when it’s heated too fast. My chocolate went sort of sticky and doughy, but it can sometimes go grainy, or clumpy too. The secret to a silky and beautiful tart is patience when you melt the chocolate.

Cranachan

Cranachan

An Oatmeal and Scotch Dessert

Posted on October 21, 2016
Pronounced cran-ah-can, Cranachan is an Oatmeal and Scotch Dessert that’s so much more. I didn’t have the pleasure of trying while I was in Scotland, but I enjoyed learning about it while talking food with the family. What it is, is a concoction of scotch soaked oatmeal, homemade whipped cream, and fresh berries. Think of this recipe like Scottish tiramisu, with a Canadian twist.

Mocha Cupcakes

Mocha Cupcakes

with Smoked Coffee & Toffee

Posted on October 12, 2016
I don’t know about you, but I am a big fan of the whole chocolate and coffee combo. With National Dessert Day coming up, I just had to make a dessert befitting the occasion. Mocha Cupcakes with Smoked Coffee & Toffee are a perfectly portable dessert that even the non-coffee lovers will enjoy. (I say this while looking pointedly at a few people, you know who you are…) Topped with even more chocolate, toffee bits, and coffee-chocolate ganache, who wouldn’t go nuts for these Mocha Cupcakes?

Posted on August 25, 2016
Following National Eat a Peach Day is National Peach Pie Day on August 24th. You won't be able to resist this Peach Pie with a Malibu Twist! Sweet peaches are given a bit of a boozy boost with a splash of Malibu Rum original -with coconut, or try the banana flavored one. You will eat at least 3.14 slices before you ever consider stopping. Get it? It's a pi joke! Anyway, this round dessert will find a place of honor on your make-again list for sure!

August 26th is National Banana Split Day so we made Grilled Banana Boat Sundaes and topped them with all of the best treats available. These delights are easy to make, and look really nifty when they're all ready. The best part is that the only things required for this recipe are the bananas. Everything else is optional. Build these at a sundae station next tot he grill for added fun, or prep them ahead of time for a fast and yummy dessert.

Chocolate Cheesecake

Chocolate Cheesecake

with Maple Pecan Topping

Posted on August 25, 2016

After making Homemade Lasagna, I found myself with a lot of leftover ricotta cheese. What better way to use up the extra ricotta than to make a Chocolate Cheesecake with  Maple Pecan Topping? Instead of my usual Cheesecake Recipe, I added ricotta for a more "Italian Style" cheesecake. Inspired by National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day on August 20th, I also added the crust from my Salted Maple Pecan Bars, as well as the topping. This cheesecake recipe has to be the richest one to date.

Mexican Style Brownies

Mexican Style Brownies

with Dark Chocolate and Chillies

Posted on August 16, 2016
This is our third brownie recipe in 3 months; that definitely constitutes a brownie kick. Who can resist these dense bars of chocolaty goodness? I, for one, can’t. Neither can my friends who requested another batch of brownies for our Sunday night gathering.  These Mexican Style Brownies with Dark Chocolate and Chillies are just the thing for National Hot and Spicy Day on August 19th. Thick and dense chocolate brownies, balanced with out with the right amount of sweetness, they sneak up and bite your tongue with a warmth that is as unexpected as it is pleasant.

with Homemade Marshmallows

Posted on August 10, 2016
National S’mores Day occurs every 10th of August and this year we wanted to take part by making something extra special! Planked S’mores with Homemade Marshmallows! Homemade marshmallows are rich, fun, and surprisingly easy to make. Turning them into s’mores seemed like the logical next step. Making S’mores on the grill, even more so. Dazzle your friends, family, and guests with these sweet treats. It takes about 45 minutes to make the marshmallows themselves; the trick is having the patience to let them set. Once set, it’s the work of a moment to get these beauties grilling for an amazing dessert of ultra homemade S’mores.
