Heavenly Chocolate Mousse Cannoli

dsc_8806

This isn’t a traditional cannoli.  In fact, I was struggling with what I should call this dessert since this pastry is not fried and not filled with ricotta or mascarpone cheese.  This was the best I could come up with, but I think it says enough. Cannoli originate from Sicily, which is where my ancestors […]

Movie Night: Popcorn Cupcakes

Popcorn is the perfect salty movie snack.  Popcorn cupcakes, for me, are now the perfect movie dessert! I chose to post this today because it’s rainy and dreary outside, which is the perfect movie weather! Now, tell me, what is the perfect movie?  (The Lord of the Rings? Star Wars? Good Will Hunting? Ferris Bueller’s […]

Happy Easter!

I know I’m lacking in posts the last few days.  Trust me, I have new recipes waiting to make their debut on here, I just haven’t had the time.  Today is Easter, so I’ll leave you with Easter Penny wishing you a “Happy Easter” and what we like to call in our household “Resurrection Day” […]

Oatmeal Raisin Sandwich Cookie Cake

One of my coworker’s birthday was last week while she was on vacation.  So, I decided to surprise her with this cake the day she returned, since I know she loves Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.  It was perfect because I needed to make Oatmeal Raisin Sandwich Cookies for Ben’s lunch this week.  I ended up making […]

Pita Chips

At the March Madness party I briefly posted about yesterday, I used up the rest of the pita pockets that were leftover from a past baby shower I hosted and made these pita chips.  I’ve never made pita chips before, but I’ve made tortilla chips, so I used the same concept.  I was very pleased […]

March Madness Cookie Bouquet

Last weekend we had a March Madness party at our house.  One of the girls brought a cookie bouquet that she made for this event.  It was so cute I had to ask if I could post a photo of it on here. Now, who’s watching the big game tonight?  Who are you cheering on?  […]

Amish Friendship Chocolate Muffins

Has anyone ever given you (or tried giving you) Amish Friendship Bread starter dough? My friend at work got us hooked on it.  It’s a yeast concoction that you feed every few days with flour, sugar and milk until the day you use it for baking.  It’s kept in a ziplock bag and will expand, […]

dsc_8562

Spaghetti & Meatballs like you’ve never tasted it before!  I just made this for our small group Bible study tonight.  Gotta run or we’ll be late!  I’ll post the recipe for this deceiving dessert ( yup! DESSERT!) when I get home.  For now, can you guess what this really is? *UPDATE** Okay, I’m back!  This […]

Italian Pizzelle Ice Cream Sandwiches

dsc_8340

Last week we had dinner at a friends’ home.  I was in charge of bringing dessert.  Since the meal was a classic Italian dish, Chicken Cacciatore, I wanted to make a dessert that fit the “theme.”  I had this recipe bookmarked on Tastespotting for quite some time and knew this was the perfect opportunity to […]
