Trix Bars

The fact that I never posted these back when I was doing my whole cereal bar experiment shouldn’t surprise me, because my brain is on another planet these days, so here’s another (fantastic-tasting) cereal you should give a go with some melted marshmallow and butter. Like I said, I made these last summer back when […]

S’more Pudding Pie, please

So this was supposed to post on Presidents Day, but I guess it didn’t! Per usual these days, here in southern California anyway, it is February and the temperature is a crisp 80 degrees. That being said, I didn’t want to turn on my oven last week to make dessert! Fortunately, I have a solid, […]

Reese’s Puffs Bars

I made another cereal bar, I know you’re shocked! This particular experiment involved Reese’s Puffs Cereal. I wanted to enhance them, a la the s’more bars, so I added a drizzle of peanut butter and chocolate over the top. Yummers. Now, I will admit, these weren’t my favorite because the cereal didn’t have as much crunch […]

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bars

So in my never-ending quest to see how different cereals work within the parameters of a Rice Krispie Treat recipe, I decided to try out some Cinnamon Toast Crunch. (Previously I’ve experimented with Fruity Pebbles and Golden Grahams.) These were pretty bombtastic, as some people say. I wanted to enhance the cinnamon and french-toasty flavors, […]

Vanilla Pastry Cream

I don’t know when or how I got into my head that I wanted to make pastry cream, but I did. Probably because it’s summer, and a fruit tart sounds so nice this time of year. Of course, I didn’t actually have the patience to bake a tart crust, but that’s neither here nor there. There’s […]

S’more Bars

As I promised in my post about Fruity Pebble Treats, I wanted to play around with different cereals to make different kinds of bars. One day, the idea for a S’more bar hit me, so I experimented. I used the basic recipe you’d use for the other treats, but added a little bit extra for […]

Sauteed Peaches

It’s summertime, and fortunately stone fruit is in season, because I saw an episode of Chopped where someone made sauteed peaches with brown sugar and butter, and I had to immediately make it myself! Since I was going to the store anyway, I grabbed some vanilla bean-flavored coconut milk ice cream. (I really do try […]

4th of July Lemonade Pie

I’ll make this quick since I meant to post it in plenty of time for you to make it today before any barbecues! This pie needs 8 hours to set in the freezer (preferably overnight, but I’m sure you could do 6 in a pinch!), so even if you can’t make it today, you can […]

Microwave Mug Cake

I found a recipe for mug cake like this recipe years ago, and threatened to make it, but never made good. One night when I was fiending for something dessert-y, and coincidentally trolling Pinterest, I found this Salted Caramel version on Babble and thought it’d be a brilliant quick fix. (You know, once I  modified […]

Popcorn Cake

So, I’m not sure if any of you were watching TV yesterday, but the New York Giants won the Super Bowl! For those of you who don’t know me all that well, I am a huge Giants fan, so for my friends and I, this was more than a get-together to watch commercials. Some might […]
