This pavlova, by the way, is the perfect classical dessert, because it’s sort of classical itself. It’s named after a Russian ballerina. And, just like her, it’s delicate and fabulous.
I figured it would be a good time to revisit the cream cheese mints. There’s something about the mint flavor that is so refreshing, don’t you think? And, I made them green, because it’s March.
Peppermint and I have some things in common, namely, that we are both close personal friends with chocolate, and we’re both tired of cherries and strawberries monopolizing the Valentines Day dessert scene.
Today the sun came out, I woke up in a good mood, and it was time to bake something fun… just for fun. I found some cream cheese in the fridge just begging to be baked with, and I figured my chocolate cake would taste amazing with a little cheesecake on top.
This week’s dessert is simple, easy, and requires no refrigeration. We’re also bringing you an awesome holiday food party with twelve fantastic bloggers!
Let’s not forget that it is now November. I have no idea where this year went, and I can’t decide whether I’m happy or sad to have it behind me. But that is beside the point. The point is, it’s fall, and I needed some fall flavors in these bars.
I recently found myself saddled with ripe bananas, when the project I had intended to use them for fell through. The memory of this chocolate banana bread discussion came flooding back to me. And if I’m being completely honest, the thought of how this bread would look on this cutting board is the real reason I ended up making it.
Sometimes, on Halloween, a mom needs 10 minutes to herself, so she doesn’t lose her cool. We all know what that looks like, and it ain’t pretty. It might be the scariest part of Halloween, actually.
My awesome brother gave me a brand new 12-inch skillet as a gift recently. I was so excited to get it seasoned and start using it. I couldn’t decide what to make in it first!
Toffee is one of my favorite candies. Butter + Sugar… what’s not to love? I wanted to add a little salt to my sweet (salty + sweet is the best flavor combo) so I poured my toffee over pretzels. Pretzels go great with basically everything, if you ask me.
