It was Heather’s birthday this week and I wanted to make dinner for her. Because I love her. And because I like making delicious food. Stacey also joined us for an evening of mushrooms, cheese and lots of wine.
This is Heather! She’s holding one of the gifts I got for her, a product called Spiced Beer Jelly. I bought it on Fab.com and it came in a two pack along with a jar of strawberry balsamic jelly (which we also …
Two recipe posts in one week?! I must be going batty. Or there’s some kind of holiday on the horizon. Hmm.
Honestly though, I can’t believe I haven’t made Easter treats before this instead of buying all of the candy from the store. In addition to Zombie Bunnies, Jake’s kids will also be getting cookies. Specifically, cookies made with these little gems:
Lucky for me, I already know the kids love these since we took a bag with us to see The …
A few weeks ago, I saw this Chocolate Zombie Bunny over at ThinkGeek:
I thought, “Whoa, that’s so cool! I want one!” At the time, it was full price at $14.99 and then I thought, “Pfft, I could make my own zombie bunnies.” So I did:
My zombie bunny is still not fully decomposed yet, but he’s been wrecking havoc with his bitey little bunny mouth. He’s a bad, bad, zombie bunny.
Jake and I are planning on giving these zombie bunny chocolates …
This time last week, I was home sick. Like, really really sick. Like, I spent five and a half hours in urgent care sick. Come to think of it, I’ve been ill on and off since last December with a cough that just won’t quit. And recently, just went I thought I was getting better, the cough came back on full force to turn around and bite me right in the ass.
I thought the flu had finally come up and …
I wanted to make Jake something unique and special for Valentine’s Day last week. Red Velvet Cupcakes are his favorite dessert so I wanted to do a little twist to that, and turn them into cookies instead. I got the idea to stuff them with caramel because last year for his birthday, I forgot to put the caramel sauce in the middle of his giant caramel cupcake… and he did not let me forget it. Caramel stuffed cookies just sounded …
Valentine’s Day is making a pretty fast approach (pssst, it’s on Thursday). Instead of doing a last minute “oh crap I kind of forgot” gift… take a little bit of time to do make something for your sweetie this year instead of another gigantor box of chocolates. I offer you this as a solution: rice krispies treats, all doctored up and fancy lookin’, enough to impress any well meaning boy or girl. If you don’t have a sweetie yet, this …
When I was preparing the menu to do my big dinner recently, I knew I wanted to do a lemon dessert. Originally I was going to make Lemon Tassies but the thought of making 24 little tarts in a mini muffin pans sounded completely exhausting to me. Instead, I kept looking for something unique to do… and something a little easier.
This recipe is … well, mostly easy. Except for the “constant 12-15 minutes of whisking over a pot of boiling …
