Pinteresting Things Tuesday

1 Oct

Hey ya’ll

Since I’ve been on a Pinterest binge the past couple weeks, I wanted to do up a little post of all the things I’ve been obsessing over on that dang website.

I am going to try making this a weekly thing but you all know how bad I am at that. So bear with me.

1. Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes
 


 

Umm, heck yes! My favorite winter drink made into a cupcake? Yusss.

 

2. Bahn Mi Pizza

 


 

Is this a thing?? I am always amazed by the new ways people switch up the basic pizza!

 

3. These Crockpot Carne Asada Nachos

 


 

Nachos are like my holy grail pub food. Plus these ones look all vegetable-ey.

 

4. Spring Samosas with Sweet and Spicy Mint Chutney

 


 

Samosas are one of those favorites that I always forget about. These are a neat twist on the classic Samosa, it uses rice paper wraps instead of pastry, so they’re even guilt free!

 

5. This Cheesy Artichoke Pumpkin Dip

 


 

Serving it in a pumpkin? Priceless.

 

6. Pumpkin Cake with Candied Pumpkin Seeds Inside

 


 

Adorable.

 

7.  Asian Salmon Tacos

 


 

I never thought of using salmon in tacos! What a wonderful idea.

 

8.  Pan Fried Pork Dumplings

 


 

Just yum. Would be perfect for a Dim Sum brunch.

 

9. This Fudge Sundae in a Cookie Bowl

 


 

What the…what?

 

10. Pumpkin Ravioli with Hazelnut Brown Butter Sauce and Balsamic Drizzle.

 


 

Nommmm.

 

I hope you enjoyed! If you want to keep up with my pins, you can follow me here.

 

Miss Delish asks:

 

What are you pinning today?

 

Have a great day, folks!

 

Mini Strawberry Shortcake Cheesecakes

31 May

I like cheesecake.

Actually, I have to admit, I am a really high maintenance cheesecake eater.

Cheesecake do’s and don’ts:

DO make sure the crust is thin and crispy

DON’T make the crust hard as a rock and 3 inches thick. If you can’t cut through it with a fork with very little pressure, it’s too thick.

DO serve it with a light topping (if it is a fairly plain cheesecake)

DON’T serve it with 10 lbs of cookies, chocolate syrup,  nuts, and whipped cream. Keep it simple!

DO make sure the recipe you’re using calls for LOTS of cream cheese and not too much of anything else. It is CHEESEcake we’re talking about here.

DON’T try to make this a low calorie dessert.

DO let me know what your favorite cheesecake recipe is

DON’T get weirded out when I show up at your house for dessert

Told you I was high maintenance.

Dreamy Peanut Butter Mousse Pie

11 Apr

Oh my!

You are all in for a treat today, let me tell you.

We’ll get to the pie in a minute but first, let’s talk about how it’s Thursday!! Who has fun weekend plans?

Ooh, I do, I do!

This Friday I am going to check out an amazing singer who happens to be a family friend of ours! Her performer name is Jet Tangerine and she does some awesome covers as well as beautiful original songs. She will be playing at a neighborhood pub on Friday night in Langley so I am going with a few friends to check her out!

If you want to see what she’s all about and listen to some of her lovely music, I am sure she would appreciate you stopping by her YouTube channel! You can also find her on Facebook. It’s always great to support local up and coming artists and I would be so grateful if you would all show her some love! Tell her I sent you :)

Oh, and if you live in the Langley area, feel free to stop in, it is an open event at Barons Manor Pub in Port Kells. Jet will be playing on and off from 6-9pm.

My weekend of fun doesn’t end there either! I am heading out to my friends cabin, just 3 of us ladies are planning a lovely relaxing weekend on a secluded island. OoOoh! Sounds wonderful right? I think we will probably enjoy a few bottles of wine as well.

It’s so important to have time with your friends, just as much as it is for guys to have their “Man Time” as well.

One last thing before we move on to the recipe, I would love love love to do a fun giveaway once we reach 1500 likes on Facebook!  If you could head over there and give me a like and maybe share with your friends, that would be great! I will announce the giveaway once we get to that big 1500! Only 188 to go.

Okay, lets get on to some food considering that’s what this site is all about, right? Who am I kidding? I just write about what I want!

But for now, what I want is some peanut butter pie!

Salted Caramel Drenched Cupcakes

9 Apr

Morning ya’ll.

I’m about to ruin your diet only one day into the week, who’s ready for it?

I don’t know about you, but I’m the kind of person that will pack a fairly healthy lunch, bring a travel mug of green tea, and eat a healthy breakfast Monday-Thursday.

When Friday rolls around, all bets are off.

I usually grab a starbucks on the way to work, maybe a breakfast sandwich too, probably order take out for lunch with the ladies from work, and then who knows what will happen later on.

Like I said though, this time we’re going to kick this week off with something naughty!

These cupcakes are bananas. Not really, that might be somewhat healthy.

These are sooo, sooo, not.

But they are darn good. I played around with the recipe for these a few times before I got it the way I wanted it.

Wanna know a secret? Lean in real close and I’ll tell ya.

The secret is boxed cake mix.

Okay, I haven’t been exactly secretive about the fact that I think cake mixes are a perfectly acceptable ingredient to use. They are easy and the cupcakes always come out perfectly. Win win!

Coconut Snowball Truffles

26 Nov

Who’s started her Christmas baking? THIS girl.

Yeahhh.

I think this is the first time ever that I started before the beginning of December. My mom and I started last weekend and we already have four different things made.

One of those things was White and Milk Chocolate Swirled Bark with Cranberries and Pecans which is no longer with us….due to some family members, that I will not mention, eating it all before December even hits.

The remaining three of those recipes I will be sharing this week and this is one of them!

As evidenced here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here aannnnnnddd here, I kind of like coconut.

Which is why it was the obvious choice to make into a delicious truffle to enjoy over the holidays. This recipe uses my most favorite thing ever, coconut oil! Which means these are basically like a health food.

Okay, so maybe not.

Healthy or not, they are easy and delicious and you should make them.

Just try and make ‘em last till Christmas. [...]
