Raise your hand if you love s’mores! Yeah, I figured. Me too. What’s more magical than a toasty marshmallow sandwiched between graham crackers and chocolate? Not much! But it’s not always feasible to build a campfire and get to toasting, so what’s a s’more lover to do? Why make S’mores Dessert Granola, that’s what!
I love most fruit. Not really surprising there. But berries have a special place in my heart. Maybe because they are so incredibly beautiful and fragile. Or maybe it’s because when they’re ripe, they’re just pure fabuloulness! And after I’ve filled my belly with them in their whole form, I like to turn the extra into these Berry Crumble Bars!
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.
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!
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.
Is there a dessert more festive for the holidays than pumpkin pie? Of course not! While you can certainly go out and buy your pumpkin pie, wouldn’t it feel great to make your own? I hear some of you groaning, but trust me, EVERYONE appreciates a homemade pumpkin pie. And this recipe is easy, I promise, so this year, I invite you to make this fabulous dessert!
You should know how to make pie crust. Seriously, you should. Your grandma made it, your great-grandma made it and likely generations of women (and men) before them did it too! And they did it without modern convienences like, you know marble countertops and running water! Is it hard to make? No! Does it take practice? Yes, of course! Can you do it? ABSOLUTELY! And I’ve got a great whole grain pie dough that would make your grandma proud!
