Thanksgiving: too much food style

So Thanksgiving was just a small family thing, so over course I cooked for like 20. Here’s a list of what I made, with just links to food I made without changing the recipe. Continue reading

What? 4 Desserts per meal is wrong?

This weekend was Labor Day and this year, we went to the beach and then had some families over for some grilling and hanging out.  The beach did not go quite as intended (Sand fleas and rain?  Really?  Still fun though.), but the grilling was nice.  However, I did get mocked for having 4 desserts with only 1 main course, but it was 1 dessert per family… That’s sane, right?  We made asian-ish steak tip/kebabs (others provided yummy sausages and zucchini and fruit salad), and then had berry fool, strawberry citrus ginger sorbet, key lime popsicles, and blubbery crumble with vanilla ice cream for dessert.  Recipes below!

Crepes!

Ok it’s been awhile, between the baby and work, everything just got crazy. But I want to start getting stuff back up here, so I’m going to begin with something short and simple. See nutella is yummy, so I bought some at Costco. So now I have a lot of nutella. One good thing about this, I also have a great and easy recipe for crepes! Now if only I could keep bananas in the house with two kids…

Apple cider caramels of awesomeness!

I’ll admit, I stole this almost wholeheartedly from Smitten kitchen, but it is so tasty and pretty simple that everyone should try it. I made it last weekend and have been restraining myself from devouring all of them every since.

I got a new cookbook (magazine)… or Blueberry Cobbler with Ginger Biscuits

I’ve made this twice to rave reviews both times, both times with kiddos eating it (once with a fairly picky kiddo eating it). Very tasty, very easy!

What to post what to post… Indecisions and pregnancy.

So, most days I say, “I should post to my recipe blog, but what to post?”  And then I get tired or distracted and wander off.  There were several days of, “I keep eating cheese popovers, I should post those… Oh, the recipe is way over there…. Ooo shiny!”  But today, today I crave citrus/strawberry/ginger sorbet, and that recipe is on my computer, so no walking required.  I win!   Continue reading

Dark chocolate tart/pie with gingersnap crust

Sofor Thanksgiving this year my mom put me in charge of desserts.  However, I was having lack of brain functioning issues, so I gave her choices and made her select and then made those.  In the end, she and my dad together requested a dark chocolate tart and key lime cheesecake.  While the cheesecake was tasty, it wasn’t any different tasting than key lime pie, and significantly more work, so I will stick to pie from here on out.  However, the chocolate tart?  That was fantastic!  Like a truffle with a hint of ginger in it.  Very rich and very yummy.  So that is what I shall share with you all, I recommend making it for Christmas and delighting your families!
