Samoa No Bake Cheesecake Parfaits: Guest Post for Katie of Clarks Condensed

Samoa No Bake Cheesecake Parfaits | Layer upon layer of chocolate and coconut, these Samoa No Bake Cheesecake Parfaits will impress your guests.

Layer upon layer of chocolate and coconut, these Samoa No Bake Cheesecake Parfaits will impress your guests. If you share them, which is really asking a lot to be honest! Seriously man, these things are dangerous. I had way too much fun making them. They should be illegal. But I'm so glad they're not. These little cups of indulgence are filled with brownies, caramel, mini chocolate chips, coconut, chocolate cheesecake, and coconut flavoured whipped cream. I know right. It's like heaven … [Read more...]

Turtle Recipes Round Up

Turtle Recipes Round Up | Cravings of a Lunatic | #turtles #chocolate #caramel #pecans #recipes

I love Turtles Chocolates. There's just something about them that makes my heart go all gooey, just like the caramel inside them. I'm obsessed with recipes that "turtle" other things. Ice Cream, Brownies, Bark, Banana Splits, you name it, if it can be "turtled" I'm all in. I asked some of my blogging buddies to hook me with some of their Turtle Favourites and then tossed in my own collection for a fabulous Turtles Recipe Round Up. Hope you love it as much as I do. … [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...]

Fried Apples with Apple Caramel Sauce | Cravings of a Lunatic | #apples #friedapples #caramel #applecaramel #dessert #fallrecipes

Great recipe for Fried Apples with Apple Caramel Sauce! My family actually liked this dessert more than apple pie. Which is saying something since we are huge pie lovers in our household. This dessert is beyond amazing! Hello readers! Sorry it's been a bit since you last saw me. I've had lots going on... like this amazing Fried Apples with Apple Caramel Sauce.... a trip to emergency.... a crashed computer.... and life just sort of spiraling out of control … [Read more...]

Chocolate Turtle Bundt Cake #Bundtamonth

Turtle Bundt Cake

This month is all about chocolate. Rich, luscious chocolate. I love the stuff. I would swim in it if it was socially acceptable. I would eat if for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I could. Any excuse to bake with chocolate is a great day in my world. Today is a fabulous day. I was able to bake with chocolate and turn it into a turtle treat. … [Read more...]

Turtle Thumbprint Cookies #SundaySupper

cookies

  Hi folks. So happy to be here today with a fabulous cookie recipe to share with you. You all know how obsessed I am with all things "turtle". It's really gotten out of hand to be honest. I have far too many turtle recipes in my recipe index. Okay that's a total lie, when can you ever have TOO many turtle recipes. There can never be too many turtles recipes in the world for my taste. I've made oodles of them. … [Read more...]

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...]

No Bake Turtle Cheesecake and My 1 Year Blogiversary!

cravingsofalunatic-no-bake-turtle-cheesecake-7

Hi folks. Today is a very special day. 1 year ago today I entered the blogosphere. I was encouraged to open a cooking blog by a very dear friend named Amy Valentino. I met Amy online playing a game called Mousehunt. After playing the game together for some time we became buddies. I was always posting what I was making for dinner or what I was baking on facebook. Quite frankly I was making people drool on keyboards before even opening the blog. … [Read more...]

Banana Sticky Buns

banana-sticky-buns-cravings-of-a-lunatic-5

    Hi folks. As promised I have this little treat for you. These are so amazing. Time consuming but oh so worth it. I've never made sticky buns before. I've made cinnamon rolls and I've made croissants but never these. To tell you how out of my element I am I'll share something with you. I had the most excellent (those too young that's from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, Keanu Reeves, holy yummy) phone conversation with a fellow blogger the other night. … [Read more...]
