Chocolate Granola with Dried Cherries, Almonds and Coconut | Burning Down The Kitchen with Javelin Warrior

Chocolate Granola by Cravings of a Lunatic

I can explain! Really I can. Okay that is never a good start to a blog post. I got a little carried away. I think I was overly hungry and it just got a little crazy in the kitchen. It started off as a healthy granola... then spiralled out of control. I feel the  need to apologize to Mark at this point. Dude you made this really awesome low sugar granola and I came in and turned it into candy. I'm sorry. But... you must have seen it coming. I mean there were signs. You … [Read more...]

Turtles French Toast #BrunchWeek

Turtles French Toast by Cravings of a Lunatic

Welcome to Brunch Week. Today's recipe is a personal fave of mine. It's seriously over the top, decadent, and dripping with all kinds of things you probably shouldn't eat for breakfast. But it's for Mother's Day.... so who gives a flip about right and wrong. Mother's Day is all about being a rebel, doing all the things you shouldn't do all in one day. No? That's not what Mother's Day is about... hmm, that might explain some things. I wonder if my parole officer knows … [Read more...]

Apple Pull Apart Bread with Caramel Drizzle #SundaySupper

Apple Pull Apart Bread with Caramel Drizzle | Cravings of a Lunatic | #apple #pullapartbread #caramel #dessert

There is just something about the smell of fresh bread wafting through your house on a weekend. Add some apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and caramel sauce and it's almost sensory overload. Notice I say "almost". To me there is no such thing as "too much of a good thing". When I make things with cinnamon and nutmeg I just want the food to practically swim in it. I cannot help myself. I find myself dashing on a little more spice, then a little more. Luckily my family shares my obsession with cinnamon and … [Read more...]

Banana Sticky Buns
