Peanut Butter Macarons

Peanut Butter with Chocolate PB Ganache #PBBash

It's well known that I'm a peanut butter fiend. So much so, that I felt the need to start a group where we create a recipe each month that includes peanut butter and named it peanut butter bash. This month's theme is peanut butter and chocolate. What a way to kick off this party! I love macarons and I wanted to get fancy for our first peanut butter bash party. The macaron shell is packed full of peanut butter flavor from PB2. The ganache is a combination of milk chocolate chips and Reese's peanut butter chips. I didn't want the peanut butter to get overpowered by the milk chocolate ganache, so it was only necessary to add  more peanut butter! I love using ganache after it has chilled in the fridge for a couple of hours. It's so thick and pretty much the best thing ever. You know what has made it even better? PEANUT BUTTER. Holy moly. I can't stay out of it. I've been dropping weight for a wedding I was in this last weekend, but now I guess it's a free for all. I keep … [Read more...]

Caramel Raisin Bread Pudding

Caramel Raisin Bread Pudding

Are you a bread pudding fan? If you are, I have this awesome recipe for caramel raisin bread pudding. It's super easy to make and tastes like heaven. This is a perfect fall breakfast or dessert. This bread pudding isn't over saturated in liquid. Well, other than caramel, but that doesn't count! It sticks together beautiful and has a wonderful texture. I love the little bits of extra browned bread. Do you love the extra browned bits of food or am I just crazy? I'm probably just a little crazy.   For the record, I had all I could do not to take down that little pitcher of caramel. My weakness. One of the million of them. Boo to so many food weaknesses!     Look how you can perfectly cut these into lovely squares! Perfectly sliced squares is one of my favorite things. It doesn't happen often, but when it does.. it's grand!     [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:146]   … [Read more...]

Meyer Lemon Curd

Meyer Lemon Curd

Do you ever get super excited when you go into a store and they finally have the food you've been watching and waiting for? Yeah, I do too. I'll start talking loud and stumbling on my words as I'm trying to explain to Wesley what I desperately need the said food for. It happened.. with a bag of Meyer lemons. I couldn't wait to put this Meyer lemon curd together and then make a pie with it. Well, I put the Meyer lemon curd together and then proceeded to eat it. Sorry pie, maybe next time! It's like eating a highly fattening, super rich, and ridiculously delicious pudding that looks like a cup of sunshine. Now how are you supposed to resist that, especially after the description that I just gave? You CAN'T! Maybe you can, it's probably just me. Also, I'm not a fan of the word curd.   [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:152]   … [Read more...]

Hot Pepper Butter

Hot Pepper Butter

So, as requested by some readers on facebook, here is my hot pepper butter recipe. It's not really mine, I was told about it at a flea market near my parents. Every year I have people go crazy over this hot pepper butter. It's like a sweet and spicy mustard and it apparently makes people go nuts for it. I make it every year  and somehow most of it gets handed out to people that are highly addicted to it. My only rule for when I give out this hot pepper butter is that I get my jars back. I don't want to have to buy jars every year and I don't think it's too much to ask to get my jar back since I am feeding the... addiction. As you can see, my food of choice for this delicious condiment is pretzels. Soft, hard, any, I don't care as long as they are pretzels. It's good with so many things. If you have a large amount of Hungarian peppers, this is a recipe you need in your life. Our farmer's markets still have loads of Hungarian peppers, so now is the time to get this made … [Read more...]

Sunday’s Recipe Wrap-up Link Party #9

Sunday Recipe Wrap-up!

It's that time again! We're here for another week of recipes! Thanks everyone that keeps coming back and sharing all the great recipes. Today I'll be dropping off a birthday balloon to my grandma's tombstone and picking up my flower pot from this summer's flowers I took to her. It's a sad day for me. I don't want to be a debbie downer, so I'll leave it at that. Also, be sure to share the party so we can get more people joining in!   I’m featuring last week’s most clicked recipe! Homemade Pumpkin Spice Mix  via Ten at the Table Here are the rules! 1. Only post recipes from the current week (9/15 - 9/21) and the posts have to be yours.

Coffee Ice Cream

Coffee Ice Cream

Let it be known that there are only 2 kinds of ice cream that I care to eat. Coffee and Black Raspberry and maybe ice cream with ginormous solid pieces of peanut butter in it too. So 3. 3 kinds of ice cream. So I made coffee ice cream. Lucian and I really absolutely love this ice cream. It's like an ice coffee with loads of cream. Wesley is a party pooper and won't have anything to do with coffee. He likes the smell of it and that's where his interest of coffee flavored things departs. That's okay, I like it enough for both of us.   I used to work at a restaurant that had the best coffee ever.  I couldn't get enough of it. It was from Keck's. If I could get my hands on a box of that coffee I would be on a month long caffeine high. It was super strong and just the best tasting. Do you see those speckles of goodness all throughout the ice cream? That's a good ol' vanilla bean. A vanilla bean will really bump up the flavor of any ice cream. Highly recommed … [Read more...]

Blackberry Cheesecake

Blackberry Cheesecake

I'm still on a blackberry kick. What can I say? It's one of my favorite berries. I wait all summer long to go pick fresh blackberries. So, after creating this recipe this is what I've decided. Cheesecake + Blackberries = Miranda's slice of heaven. I think the golden Oreo's put the icing on the cake.. or the crust on the cheesecake. hahaha. See what I did there? The only thing that I can't stand about blackberries are the seeds. Does anyone else have a deep love for blackberry or raspberries, but can't deal with crunchy on the seems? I know there is. If you're one of those people, I've got you covered. Since I too cannot stand them, I cooked the blackberries and strained out the seems. I'm digging the swirly look of the blackberry cheesecake. I got a little heavy handed on one side of the cheesecake with the blackberry sauce. It happens, I suppose. Just go with it like I did, and eat the fully loaded blackberry sauce side first. It was almost too good to … [Read more...]
