I sometimes don’t know how to leave well enough alone. I mean, what’s wrong with a brownie? Why do I need to mess with it? Because I’m me and that’s just what I do. Afterall, what could be so bad about a Chocolate Dipped Brownie? The answer? Nothing. Not. A. Thing.
“I don’t like it!” This is the sentiment shared with me after the little sous chef sampled her first bite of pumpkin pie. “What? Are you serious?” was my reply. I just couldn’t fathom that my little sugar monster wouldn’t like pie. But she made it clear that she never wanted anything to do with pie ever again. Oh the horror! But I’ve got a little trick up my sleeve this year. It’s called Whipped Pumpkin Pie Bites.
Do you ever crave something? Wait, if you’re human, I am certain that you do. Well, recently I’ve been craving chocolate and raspberries. It’s a combination I’ve loved since I was a kid. And it all has to do with a guy named Ben and a guy named Jerry. And here’s the story on how these Outrageous Raspberry Brownies were created!
Every Easter I always try to make some delicious dessert. It usually involves coconut, because, I for some reason, associate that with spring and Easter. This year I considered another coconut confection, but decided to break tradition and test out carrot cake. But not a layered carrot cake, I wanted a CARROT BUNDT CAKE!
Annnnnd, that’s a wrap folks! Yep, I aired my final “What Was That?” episode last week on my Instagram Stories. Did you miss it? That’s just not okay (insert crying emoji face), but luckily for you, they’re all still there! And luckily for you, the last episode was a good one. All about a little cake called Torta Della Nonna!
If someone asked me what my favorite dessert is, I would not hesitate one bit with my answer. I would 100% say it’s a brownie. If you’re a chocolate lover like me, it’s pretty hard to top a really awesome brownie. Something about that chocolatey-chewy goodness makes me so incredibly happy. And while I love a solid, traditional brownie, I also love any twist on the classic. So yeah, how about a Rocky Road Brownie? Yep, that sounds good.
It’s so easy to be intimidated by baking. Especially if you’re baking meringue cookies. It seems like the cards are stacked against you. Too many odds. No way can you win. But, I completely disagree. In fact, I think you can 100% make Meringue Cookies. Why? Because I’ve got the tips to help you succeed!
Picture this, you’ve just finished a delicious meal at a great restaurant and shortly after, your server comes to the table and hands you the dessert menu for you to peruse. After a quick look, you find yourself reaching for your phone because it’s time to do some research. Panna cotta? What the heck is that? Maybe you’ve heard of panna cotta, but you don’t actually know what panna cotta is. Right? Am I right? Don’t worry about it! I’m here to save the day!
Reminder, I am from Indiana, a neighboring state to Ohio. Ironically, when I was little, I never once remember hearing the word “buckeye.” You’d think that since I was neighbors with the “Buckeye State,” it would’ve been talked about at some point. But no, my first encounter was when I was at my internship at the University of Massachusetts. That’s when I fell in love with buckeyes.
