I can’t tell you how in love with Red Velvet I’ve been lately. I met a women at the Farmer’s Market a couple weeks ago and she said it was complete and utterly ridiculous that people eat red velvet all year round. She comes from the South and traditionally Red Velvet is only eaten once a year around the holidays. Well I am NOT traditional. And I figure what better way to stray so far from traditional than putting classic cannoli cream in a red velvet cookie cup. Yes I am serious! I’m sure someone’s Sicilian great grandmother just rolled over in her grave.
The cinnamon and all spice flavors of the cannoli cream are perfect with the chocolatey goodness of red velvet. If you guys remember my cream cheese stuffed red velvet cookies recipe, you know that I use another super non-traditional ingredient in my red velvet….ground chocolate. Which adds a delicious crispy texture to the outside of the cookie and a deliciously chewy inside. My favorite!Read More
I’m going to be honest with you guys. I am a one beer wonder, a one drink stink, a total light weight and a cheap date…bottom line I have a very small tolerance for alcohol. It’s in my genes. My dad could get a buzz from a non-alcoholic beer so it’s really not my fault. Luckily for me, the majority of alcohol bakes out in these Kahula White Russian Cookies so I can have as many as I want without that nasty hangover I am WAY too old for!
Have you ever had a White Russian? It’s basically vodka, Kahlua and cream. Simple and delicious. It is actually my husband’s favorite drink which is why I had to make a cookie after it. This cookie has all the elements of a White Russian minus the vodka. But who needs vodka when you can have espresso, Kahlua and white chocolate all wrapped up in one awesome cookie! Yum!Read More
Let’s just talk for a minute about what I ate this Holiday season. I would guesstimate about 3 pounds of cheese..omg…I LOVE cheese, 2 entire boxes of chocolate, beef & pork meatballs and I NEVER eat beef & pork, a bushel of dumplings….kinda don’t even feel guilty about that one and we haven’t even gotten started on the cookies! So, why in world am I posting another cookie recipe?! Because these cookies are just that good and with the cherries & almonds….good for you right?Read More
What do you think of when you think of love & romance? Candlelight dinners? Long walks on the beach? A nice homemade dinner for two? How about Mexican Chocolate Cookies? They totally make me swoon. Is that weird? Yea..maybe a little weird. But who cares, these cookies just scream romance, decadence and total indulgence for me!Read More
Okay okay I promise this is my very last post of the year for peppermint. I can’t help it. I just love peppermint, especially this time of year. There’s just something so festive about the cooling and wintery taste peppermint always has. Which is why these Christmas cream cheese buttermints are the perfect thing to serve after the most delicious Christmas dinner.Read More
