I was at our local “Wally World” the other day and spied something different in the freezer case. I recall there being three flavors of house brand Ice Cream Sandwiches, but the Cherry one was calling my name, no really! “Auntie, you need to try this, AUNTIE!!“ Even my cashier commented on my purchase, “Uuuuhhhhh, what’s this? I don’t think I’ve seen this before, this is looks delicious!” RIGHT?! Cherries and Chocolate, such a fabulous combination.
That night, DH was poking around the kitchen, as he will do on occasion, looking for something sweet.
DH: Uuuuuhhhh, what’s this? This looks delicious!
Me: Right?! That’s what my cashier said too, HA!!!
So it was unanimous, these cuties are superb!
I have no clue why I just can’t get enough sweets lately, but I do.
Recently, I finally found Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa. I have a couple of recipes that suggest using this product. Now I can make Hershey’s Best Brownies with this.
I had some Pistachios leftover from the Cannoli Ice Cream Cake that I made, so in they went.
I thought it best to make only a half batch. Some how they mysteriously disappeared before the next morning. HMMM…
The other day I was in a quandary as to what to serve for dessert. On Sundays I make a nice big supper, usually something in the Italian style and then finish off the meal with a sweet.
I was rooting around in my kitchen cupboard and found a stray box of Fruit Punch Flavored Jello®. This called for a quick trip to our local market for a can of Reddi Wip®.
COME ON! When was the last time you had
I had a couple of 4 small apples that were a bit too tart to eat out of hand, so what to do?
What about a tart?
This can’t be any easier to do.
Take out a sheet of frozen puff pastry and let it rest on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 420⁰. In the meantime, simply peel, core, half and slice the fruit. As you finish each apple, put the slices into a bowl of water with some lemon juice in it so that they don’t turn brown on you. Drain the water off, mix in a squirt of fresh lemon juice, ½ cup of brown sugar and your favorite apple pie spices (I used freshly grated nutmeg, cinnamon and ground ginger). Give it a good stir and then line the fruit up on the pastry, leaving about an inch boarder all the way around. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until the pastry is nicely browned.
Allow to cool and serve with your favorite topping, we chose vanilla ice cream, but powdered sugar would be nice as well. This didn’t come out super pretty, but man, it sure did taste good.
I’ve tried to replicate the cake pop that I had a few months back in Scottsdale, but…
This time I had a Rum Cake in the freezer, why not give it another shot. I had a package of vanilla flavored Candy Melts and more sprinkles.
DH loved these, me, not so much. WAY too sweet for me.
I was in the green grocers again the other day, and this familiar scent went past me, what the heck was that? So I followed my nose to a small display off to one side of grapes, GRAPES? Yup, Cotton Candy Grapes, I KNOW RIGHT?
If you smell, I mean see this varietal of grapes, BUY THEM! They even taste like that sweet, sticky, yummy stuff you had as a kid, well, maybe as an adult too.
