Chocolate Mousse Pie with Pretzel Crust

chocolate mousse pie 035

The weekend goes by so fast, and most of my weekend is filled with cooking or baking and then trying to keep my kitchen clean. Key word is TRYING. I'm pretty terrible at cleaning my kitchen and putting stuff away. There will be dishes piled up in the sink for days and I'll do my best to keep the kitchen counters clean.  Food blogger's issues. On Saturday, I went to Chipotle for the first time. Chipotle had opened up back in the Winter here, and I've been waiting for the lines to die down. ...

Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwich Cookies

peanut butter chocolate ice cream sandwich cookies 009

Do you ever go on Reddit? I have been reading that a lot lately, since I can no longer access Pinterest at work. I know, sad times. They use a very old outdated version of Internet Explorer, which they refuse to upgrade. My homework assignments lately for school always say to keep your browsers fresh and updated because technology is ALWAYS changing. Reddit has a sub reddit called Food, and it gives me bad ideas. One day, I was reading about how someone took peanut butter sandwich cookies and ...

White Chocolate Cherry Granola

So happy it is Saturday. I'm going to a cupcake decorating class later on at 2:00pm today. I'll have to take pictures of the finished cupcakes and post them on here. It's with the I joined. I also went and had some brunch with a friend at this place called the Boiler Room. We had Scotch eggs with maple aoli and they were to DIE for. The sausage was so spicy and the sauce was the best. A Scotch egg is a hard boiled egg, that is rolled in ground sausage and then gets deep fried with a ...

Baked Funfetti Glazed Doughnuts

Happy Wednesday! Here's a little tip. If you want to get back at someone you don't like at the moment, go to a health insurance site and enter in their phone number to the site and press the enter button when looking for quotes. They'll get spammed up to wazoo in phone calls! I accidentally did that, and now I'm getting calls from all over the US. They started on Friday and now, I probably have up to 80 phone calls from missed insurance companies. I'm not kidding you! Don't ever do that for ...

Weight Watcher’s Easy Cherry Crisp

easy cherry crisp 022

Happy Friday! I have the day off since it's Good Friday,  so I decided to make some cherry crisp. This recipe is so ridiculously easy it's almost embarrassing. Instead of baking the crisp in the oven, you could make this in the microwave. The reason why this cherry crisp is easy, is that it calls for store bought granola. If you make it homemade, you have to combine all the ingredients in a stander mix including butter, oatmeal, sugar, flour, etc. Use whatever frozen fruit you have on ...

Cherry Chocolate Scones

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

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 ...
