Ooey gooey marshmallows and melty chocolate combine inside of these adorable little hand pies. Then the pies are brushed with butter and graham crumbs before getting more chocolate drizzled over top of them. It's heaven in a little hand held pie! Aren't these adorbs? I can't take my eyes off of them. Mostly because when I do people keep scarfing them and there's less for me. So I keep one eye on them....at all times. Mine, all mine! … [Read more...]

Microwave Nutella S’mores Fudge

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...]

Easter Jelly Bean Bark by Cravings of a Lunatic

I love Easter. I love Chocolate. I love Easter Chocolate! Heck, let's be honest, I love any kind of chocolate. Any excuse to chow down on delicious chocolate is a good day in my book. Toss in some festive holiday candy and it goes beyond love, right into obsession. I love Creme Eggs. I love Jelly Beans. Add those to chocolate bark and it might be time for a restraining order. I may cross over the edge. It's been known to happen. I mean look at this stuff. It's yummy goodness inside more … [Read more...]

Coconut Chocolate Cookies | Burning Down The Kitchen with The Cooking Actress

Coconut Chocolate Cookies by Cravings of a Lunatic

There is just something about the smell of fresh chocolate chip cookies baking that just makes me happy and content. The scent of them just fills the house, wafting through each room until the whole house smells like a bakery. Add the lovely tropical scent of coconut to the mix and it's just sensory overload, in a good way. I can barely keep my hands off them as the finish baking. There are empty spots where cookies should be on the baking sheets. I would love to blame the kids but they are not … [Read more...]

You can make things like Red Velvet Cookie Stacks with Red Velvet Whipping Cream with that spare cream in your fridge.

Mixed Berry Parfaits

Mixed Berry Parfaits by Cravings of a Lunatic

I'd like to welcome you to the start of Whipping Cream Week. I'm participating in a contest involving real cream which got me to thinking. I buy a big thing of real cream, aka heavy cream, aka whipping cream, at the store and it costs a good pile of dough. Then I use a little bit of it and then forget I have it. I use it up like mad in summer when I am constantly making ice cream. Yet winter months I tend to buy it and forget it is in the fridge. So I decided if I do this, there must be lots of … [Read more...]

Double Coconut Macaroon Cookies: Guest Post for Chelsea’s Culinary Indulgence

cookies

Now here is a cookie any one can make. They are simple, fast and completely off the charts when it comes to flavour. I make a different version of these every year for the holidays. This year I wanted to kick things up a notch. I had scored some coconut M & M's on a shopping excursion to the states. So I hid them away knowing I would use them for just this purpose. I knew I would be so happy I saved them so they could add extra coconut goodness to my already fabulous coconut cookies. I was … [Read more...]

Cherry Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes, BDTK/Chocolate Moosey and Foodie Penpal

cupcakes

Hi folks. I took a hiatus from Burning Down The Kitchen recently. After the vacation of doom I just was not up to doing them. Plus I'm not going to lie, I've had a couple of interviews get forgotten about by the interviewee. So for a while there I was questioning whether I wanted to continue doing these interviews. But I'll be darned if I'm going to let someone else control my world. Yes they are a lot of work to organize but for me the payoff is awesome. I get to know other bloggers so much … [Read more...]
