This one goes out to keepz, a very kind visitor who left some suggestions for my next bread art experiment. I went with hearts, but to keep it simple I did only one. To me it looks like the bottom half of a strawberry so next time I’m throwing some green on top.
My first ever clafouti. Having never had “clah-fooo-tea” before I am unable to tell you how it compares to other clafouti recipes… but I can tell you I loved it. I am definitely a bread pudding, tapioca, rice pudding kind of gal, so I guess its not too surprising that I polished off half the dish on my own.
If there ever was a perfectly obvious cookie choice made for Valentines Day, its got to be this one. Doesn’t it just scream Valentines Day?
After quite a bit of internet surfing for a Linzer cookie recipe, I couldn’t find one that sounded easy and for which I had all the ingredients. So I took a stab at making my own. They came out amazing! The dough was easy to work with, and the most important thing… they tasted delicious, light and buttery with a nice almond lemon flavor.
Making the dough was the easy part. I let it chill in the fridge while I did our usual bedtime routine with my son. Then worked for 2 hours on baking and decorating all of them. Exhausting but worth it! Here is how to make them…
We made early Valentine’s Day treats this year because I had a yearning to do a fun baking project with my son. I haven’t had a rice crispie treat in years… since I was a kid myself, and I forgot how yummy they are! This is a great project to do with a toddler, my son helped me press out the crispies into the pan, use the cookie cutter, add sprinkles, and of course lick the chocolate spoon. Really simple and easy treat to make and share with friends!
