Ultimate Flourless Chocolate Cupcakes

The girls came over the other night to watch the Bachelor (go Melissa!), so I whipped up these cupcakes from a cupcake calendar that one of the girls gave me for Christmas.  Unfortunately, that particular girlfriend was sick and didn’t end up making it.  When making these, I set two of them aside to send […]

Seriously. This recipe is going around.  It’s been around, come around and back again.  So, I knew it had to be good after seeing it pop up on about a million, or ba-jillion, food blogs.  And, after trying it, I now understand why.  It’s such a perfect meal!  We had our friends over for dinner […]

Potato Slabs

The last of my posts for Super Bowl 2009.  I saw this idea on Amber’s Delectable Delights.  The thought of another easy recipe was definitely appealing, so I added it to my menu list right away.  These pretty much have the same taste as Potato Skins, but not as much work since you do not […]

Quick Fix: Buffalo Chicken Mini Sandwiches

This was the main plate I served at our Super Bowl party last Sunday.  I made these sandwiches into mini-sandwiches to multiply the serving size, and it worked out great!  With all of the other food served, mini-sandwiches were the perfect portion size.  These were a hit!  Very tasty and I love the buffalo hot […]

It is fun to receive these ‘unofficial’ blog awards from fellow bloggers, because it assures me that my time spent taking photos of my food and risking a cold meal is totally worth it because YOU enjoy reading my blog!  I received these three awards recently and wanted to take some time to pass them […]

Amano Chocolate – Jembrana

I was lucky enough to be one of the very few to sample this new chocolate from Amano.  Months ago I sampled chocolate from there that was not my favorite, so was thrilled to have another chance to try a different flavor from a different region.  This Jembrana chocolate is made up of cocoa beans […]

Posh Piggies

I fell in love with these right when I saw them on Tastespotting.  It’s another easy party dish that I made for our Super Bowl party.  The fun thing is, you can mix it up and use different cookie cutter shapes depending on your theme.  I just used the star cutter because I just thought […]
