Browned Butter Bacon and chocolate chip cookies

Browned Butter and Bacon plus delicious chocolatey goodness….

I found under the “On his day” thingy on Facebook, a recipe I posted several years ago for bacon and chocolate chip cookies… so I decided to try it… however, instead of following the recipe I had found, I modified my own cookie recipe and this is what I got… which I have been told is delicious.

Crazy Frosting

FrostingThe reason I call this crazy frosting is that it has no icing sugar in it so it slightly defies the laws of frosting/icing! (If there are any…)

I Googled “frosting for ice cream cake”  and someone had posted a link on a forum to this recipe that was on http://www.tastykitchen.com … on there it was called “The best frosting I’ve ever tasted”… and yep, it’s pretty good…

I’ve gotten a little out of control with the ice cream cakes.

Here is how it started…

Katy’s boyfriend Brando was having a birthday.. Katy decided to have a party for him as a result.. and I said “oh, I will make a cake”.  I asked what kind he wanted and Brando said “ICE CREAM CAKE!!” (yes… he yelled). Continue reading

Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie

 

As with many things, I am quite spur of the moment.. meaning.. I just see something in the store or on TV or whatever and just suddenly think “I HAVE TO MAKE THAT!”

And so it was with the key lime pie… walking through Sobey’s the other day and there they were… KEY LIMES! I don’t remember the last time I saw them in a grocery store here! Very unusual! Continue reading

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

We were at the Farmer’s Market on the weekend and found some lovely fresh rhubarb…. so of course pie must be made!

My mother is a pie expert.  I’ve probably told you this before, but she made pie a LOT … seemed like every day.. after all, Dad needed his breakfast pie.. not to mention lunch and dinner pie… but then he got the high cholesterol and all that pie eating came to an end.  Good thing as I think my mother was getting awfully tired ….but I digress.

Strawberries and Whipped Cream Cake

cake

Several people in my family really REALLY like vanilla cake with whipped cream and strawberries.. not SHORTCAKE .. true shortcake is an entirely different thing.. more like a biscuit.  I made this one for my niece Madeleine’s birthday this year.  I will say this.. I used some brown sugar in it as I was short on white… (half white half brown…) and it did lend a bit of a caramely taste, but it’s prettier if you use all white. Continue reading

Blueberry Pie

Well hello there Blueberry pie….

We bought a lot of blueberries, so I made some pie….

Blueberry pie has always been one of my favourites since I was a kid.  I think because it wasn’t a frequent type of pie that we had… my mother made a lot of apple pies…

Anyway.. made some pie.  I had to kind of fool around with this… last time I made a berry pie it was a wee bit runny… my rule of thumb is basically 1 tbsp cornstarch for each cup of berries.. seems to do the trick.  It was delicious. Just saying. Continue reading
