Coconut Whipped Cream and Cherry Parfaits: Guest Post for Crumb

Coconut Whipped Cream And Cherry Parfaits by Cravings of a Lunatic

This simple and quick dessert looks really impressive. It also tastes super decadent, and people will adore you when they try it. What I love about this is how easy it is. There's just something so satisfying to me about tricking people into thinking you spent all day on a dessert when you really only spent a few minutes. I have no idea what that says about me on a personal level, but I get a charge out of pulling the wool over people's eyes on occasion. Don't judge. I'm a huge cherry fanatic, … [Read more...]

I just like tricking people. There I said it. I love the idea of people thinking a recipe took a long time to make. I encourage people to think I spent hours in my kitchen working long, tiresome hours in order to satisfy their sweet tooth, and widen their waistlines.

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...]

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.

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...]

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.

Probably after a much-needed nap though. Naps then hugs all around. … [Read more...]
