Cherry Chocolate Scones

chocolate cherry scones 006

I keep on finding awesome recipes in the Better Homes and Garden Breakfast and Brunch magazine edition. The magazine was on the shelves quite awhile ago, want to say that I picked it up sometime in the middle of Winter. You know how some people are a sucker for the gossip magazines? Well, I'm a sucker for food magazines. Think they do that on purpose at the check out lanes, and put the candy right next to the food magazines. Oh look, this recipe looks good it has chocolate in it! Think I'll pick ...

Weight Watcher’s Frozen Grasshopper Pie

this pisses me off 2839

St Patrick's Day is only good for one thing and that is MINT. Mint and chocolate are meant to be together. At least I know that much is true. This is a no bake pie. It starts off with instant pistachio pudding. That sounds really weird for a mint dessert doesn't it? It works though, so trust me on this one. Next,  fold in some cool whip and mint extract and then poor it over a pie crust. Pop the pie in the freezer and wait for a couple hours for the pie to set. This pie takes no time to ...

Dulce de Leche Cookie Bars

dulce de leche cookie bars 003

I learned a very important lesson this week.  Well maybe 2 lessons. 1. None of the things that I think about in my head are real and made up and 2. Don't be afraid to ask people shit. If something is bothering you just ask them. I'm pretty good at bottling things up inside and when I'm finally fed up with it, I explode. That's probably not a very good thing either. Sigh. That equals to high blood pressure and a whole day of eating nothing but carbs. In other good news, I am back down ...

Crock Pot Dulce De Leche

honey walnut shrimp 002

This post is preparing  for a post for a bar recipe tomorrow. The main grocery store in town that I shop at didn't have any dulce de leche, they used to but stopped carrying it. Scratch that, so I decided to make my own. You want to know how easy this is to make? All you need are jars, a can of sweetened condensed milk, and a crock pot.  This takes about 8 hours to make in my crock pot, used an 8 quart slow cooker. You can start to tell when the sweetened condensed milk is starting to turn into d ...

Chocolate Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies

double double white chocolate chip cookies 023

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, is that enough chocolate for you? Tis the week for chocolate! These cookies are made with cocoa powder, white chocolate chips, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. That's 3 types of chocolate packed all in one cookie.  I almost dislike this time of year for that very reason! All the food channels show non stop shows about chocolate and I think they do that on purpose. To make you want it even more. Darn, this Holiday! This recipe is from a Food Network star and I've ...

Browned Butter Rice Krispie Treats with Caramel

rice crispy treats 040

To start of the weekend right, make these browned butter rice krispie treats with caramel. I turned these krispie treats up a notch by adding gooey caramels, chocolate chips, and letting the butter brown in the pot before adding in the marshmallows. Browned butter adds this extra flavor of richness to the rice krispie treats. If you haven't noticed on this blog yet, I've been really watching the treats lately. I used to make a new treat every weekend. Sometimes even twice a week, but now ...

Knock You Naked Brownies

knock you naked brownies 002

Valentine's Day is coming up. This year, I'll be spending Valentine's Day alone because my husband is traveling to Slovakia for work. Lucky him! I'd tag a long with, but I don't want to spend all day by myself while he's doing work stuff. No thanks. It will be just the dogs and I. We'll probably celebrate a couple days before that, and what better way to celebrate is by making your sweet heart some kind of sweet decadent dessert for Valentine's Day? If the title of these brownies bother ...

Peppermint Puppy Chow

peppermint puppy chow 013

I weighed in today and lost another 2 pounds! How the heck did that happen?! For lunch yesterday, I had prime rib and scalloped potatoes. Not to mention cheesecake for dessert?  One thing I like about Weight Watcher's is learning how to portion. A lot of the meats you can weigh with a scale and find out how many ounces are in a serving.  Salmon is great too, because 4 or 3 ounces is only 4 points, and then we'll have green beans on the side. I'm pretty happy with that too, and I'm only 1 pound a ...
