So if a person who refuses to eat anything besides burgers and Gatorade likes my beer and bacon cupcakes, then you should try it too.I used this recipe for the golf ball cake pops from last week, but I know that some people like to stick to the original cupcake version as opposed to cake pops. I get it. I dig you. So, this works just peachy for Fathers day. He will love the fact that it has bacon and beer in it. And, yes, this is totally stereotyping. Dont care. Anyway, I like beer and bacon so if I was a dad I would want it. If I am a mom one day, I still want it. So just remember that for the future.This recipe is slightly different. For the Cake Pops, the frosting was more liquidy and the cake was more moist because I wanted a strong beer taste and it was all getting mixed together anyway. For the cupcakes, I made thicker frosting that would hold, and a cake that is still moist but not too moist so that it holds its shape.
The other day the guys from BaconToday.com contacted me in search for some barbecue bacon recipes. Of course I have plenty of great uses for bacon in a barbecue pit, but the longer I thought about it, the more I wanted to step it up a notch and clog a few arteries for those guys. Behold, BACON EXPLOSION!!!
Never had a plantain? Id describe it as a heartier banana that almost borders on the texture of a sweet potato, sliced and fried similarly.In fact, plantains are often used as the potato or pasta of the Caribbean because they are starchy.The way I prepared them was a little sweet from the cinnamon and sugar and the flavor of the coconut oil seeped into them perfectly.
Layers of creamy eggnog-spiced whipped cream cover ladyfingers dipped in rich Green Mountain Coffee Fair Trade Spicy Eggnog. The scent alone from this dessert is enough to make your guests request dessert first. Serve it in a festive red dish, and you have got the capstone to your holiday meal!
As cheesecakes go, this filling is surprisingly good. The peanut butter cups are a nice little twist, but they certainly arent necessary. I think these would work well without them. Or, it would be fun to experiment with different things besides peanut butter cups. Chocolate chips, toasted nuts, caramel bits, etc. My brain and appetite are already churning thinking of all the possiblities!
Going window shopping through my food albums this morning. I would really like a couple of these…
Real breakfast? I have no idea yet.
Good Saturday morning, peeps. What’s eatin’?
These Snowballs are easy to whip up and definitely make an impact on any cookie platter. Whats cuter than little snowballs in a festive miniature liners?These cookies may look familiar to you because Im fairly certain this holiday cookie classic goes by several aliases Mexican Wedding Cookies, Russian Tea Cakes, but theyve always been and always will be Snowballs to my family.
Subway, the worlds largest sandwich chain will announce their plans for a $2, six-inch sub sandwich promotion that will span the entire month. Just when you thought they couldntout-duethemselves with their industry-busting $5 foot-long sub promotions, theyre taking it a step further during a month thats typically slower not only for Subway, but for a majority of fast food brands.The promotion only covers six-inch versions of their Meatball Marinara and Cold Cut Combo at the $2 promo price. For those that didnt study math in school, two six-inch subs will make a foot-long, and thus net you a $4 foot-long.
