3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

With Smoked Cream

Posted on April 05, 2017
It happened swiftly, shortly after dinner one night; the craving for chocolate struck like lightning. We didn’t really have anything for dessert to stave off this craving, just a bunch of seemingly random ingredients. Or were they? I managed to whip up this 3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse With Smoked Cream in about 15 minutes (pun intended). The hardest part was waiting for it to set in the fridge before eating.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Fudgy, Rich, Chocolatey, Easter Heaven

Posted on March 31, 2015
Cadbury Cream Egg Brownies. What more is there to say about that? Okay well the fact that they're gooey and rich, featuring the epitome of the coveted easter candies to make something that is already one of the best things on earth just that much better. Imagine yourself biting into a dense, fudgy brownie and your teeth sink through a layer of milk chocolate that reveals a hidden gem of creamy egg middle-ness that drips onto your chin!  ...I may be a little passionate about these brownies. Which, I should mention, are perfect for easter dessert.

Guinness Cheesecake

With A Pretzel Crust

Posted on March 11, 2015
You can't have a happy St. Patrick's Day without some Guinness and dessert. Why not combine the two by making some Guinness Cheesecake With A Pretzel Crust. Sweet and salty, full of beer, this dessert has it all! And considering five people demolished a cake meant for eight, yep it is gooood. Celebrate St. Patrick's Day, not with green beer, but with a dessert that covers all the best flavour bases, and maybe even some of the food groups too.

There's nothing like warm, fresh White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies straight from the grill. And imagine how happy Santa will be, getting homemade cookies of this caliber with a tall and cold glass of milk. These cookies also happen to be the Baron of Baking's absolute favorite cookie ever too.

One Bite Black Bean Brownies

One Bite Black Bean Brownies

On The Grill

Posted on August 24, 2014

When cooking for a crowd there are many times where you have people that have allergies. These are things that need to be considered carefully when selecting a menu. Recently I had the pleasure of cooking for 50-ish people. There were people that were gluten free, dairy free, diabetic, corn free and even egg free! Funnily enough no nut allergies... but I digress. Basically I wanted to finish off the meal that I prepared with a little bit of a sweet treat. I was inspired by The Minimalist Baker's Vegan Gluten Free Brownies to make these, One Bite Black Bean Brownies aren't crazy sweet but they have that hit of chocolate and fudge-ish texture that you like in a brownie.

Cookie, Cheesecake, Chocolate. Say no more.

Posted on August 18, 2014

I wanted cookies. I wanted chocolate. I wanted ooey and gooey and warm and .. well maybe I was just having a moment, but I was sure having a great moment when I was inspired to make these! Inspired by the recipe on Table For Two Blog, I decided I needed to make my own delectable delights, with a bit of a grilled flare.
