Simple, classic, and chock full of chocolatey goodness. Your family is going to love this! Bake them in tiny mason jars so everyone gets their own jar of happiness! Some recipes need to be shared. They need to be savoured, and enjoyed by everyone. Then there are recipes, like this one, where you hide in the closet with the entire batch so you don't have to share. Not that anyone here did that. I would never. Okay, so I totally did it. I don't even care. It was totally worth it. … [Read more...]

Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Bars

Lemon and Blueberry Bar

More Meyer Lemon Madness. I just love these sweet little lemons. I do not, however, love juicing the meyer lemons. Hubs picked me up 10 bags of meyer lemons. I picked up a case of regular lemons. Then I realized I had close to 100 lemons and not enough upper body strength to juice them all. I spent a few days scoping out juicers. I decided not to buy one. Then I came home and looked at my massive pile of lemons.... and I hopped back in my SUV and hightailed it back to the city. I grabbed … [Read more...]

More Meyer Lemon Madness for you today. I whipped up some incredibly tangy and delicious Meyer Lemon Bars. Then I ate the whole batch. Okay, okay, so not the whole batch.... I left 1 bar for hubs to try... And 1 bar for mini-me to try... I'm a giver people! Today I also have the distinct pleasure of sharing an interview with you. The amazingly talented Valerie of From Valerie's Kitchen agreed to be my next willing victim in the Burning Down The Kitchen Series. This lady is … [Read more...]

Strawberry Krispie Treat with Pink Frosting

Samoas aka Coconut Caramel Cookie Bars | Burning Down The Kitchen with “From Cupcakes to Caviar”

Samoa Bars | Cravings of a Lunatic | Super easy to make and the perfect blend of chocolate and coconut!

Hi folks. We're still on the road, probably flying down some highway right now in an attempt to get mini-me home for school tomorrow. I'm highly doubtful she'll make that first class. I told her I would try but it's a long way from Alberta to Ontario so we'll see how things go. I cannot wait to sleep in my own bed. And hug all my pets and horsey. Probably after a much-needed nap though. Naps then hugs all around. … [Read more...]

Black Forest Brownie Mini Trifles

Trifle made with homemade brownies and cherry sauce. Topped with chocolate mousse, more brownies, whipped cream and a cherry!

I made these tasty trifles last week. They are so amazing I can barely contain my excitement in describing them. But first let me tell you about one of the ingredients in this dish. It's a brownie a friend named Skye pointed out to me about a year ago. I was sceptical about them and basically tried them to prove her wrong. That's a huge claim to name them the way the author did. Then I tried them and it all made perfect sense. So for this trifle recipe you get the pleasure of using the recipe … [Read more...]

Ultimate Turtle Brownies: Burning Down The Kitchen with That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Brownies

Welcome to another edition of Burning Down The Kitchen. I started this weekly series after I realized I had bookmarked a ton of recipes from fellow bloggers but had not been making the recipes.

I love learning more about the folks behind the blogs. It's incredibly fun to peek inside their minds and … [Read more...]

Cheesecake Bars

I have been on such a cheesecake kick the last couple of weeks. I have eaten more cheesecake recently than I have in my whole life. I did these a couple of weeks ago for this guest post. It's the first time I've dabbled in bars. The inspiration to do a bar came from the wonderful lady I am guest posting for today. None other than Lizzy from That Skinny Chick Can Bake.

Hi folks. I sure hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. It is so cold here in Ontario right now. We've had a wind storm whipping around. A bit of snow today too.

Better Than Milky Way Bars by That Skinny Chick Can Bake

Hi folks. I have a very special treat for you today. A very special, sugary, oh so yummy treat in fact. The best part is it was made by the talented and delightful Liz from That Skinny Chick Can Bake. I adore her so very much, in fact we have a deal that she is going to adopt me. I'm just waiting for a bedroom to free up then I am packing my bags. Pay no mind to the fact that we're about the same age. She's probably younger than me. I am still moving in though. A deal's a deal. No take … [Read more...]
