Milky Way Midnight Cheesecake

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “Nothing good happens after midnight”.

So, to that I say… what about:

  • Stargazing
  • Rock Band All nighters
  • Baking
  • Blogging about what you just baked
  • Movie marathons
  • Great conversations
  • Enjoying peace and quiet

Any others you’d like to add to the list?

Well, while you ponder that thought, you might also want to add enjoying a slice of this yummy cheesecake to the list.



S'mores Tart

There’s a certain birthday coming up in a few days… 13 to be exact.

I began being reminded of this event as soon as the last birthday in the family occurred, which was back in August.

Since then, I have been reminded of said event at least once per day, every day, since about the 1st of September, and… I have a funny feeling the number of daily reminders will begin to increase as the day approaches.



Caramelized Grilled Mango Zabaglione

Well I’m cutting it close but I really want to get this post up before 9/13/2009, as I write it is 9/12/2009 11:45 PM.

You see, LiveSTRONG with a Taste of Yellow is a Winos & Foodies supporting event for the Lance Armstrong Foundation’s LiveSTRONG Day on October 2nd.

We are required to post our blog before September 13th, and then send the link to Winos & Foodies.

French Vanilla Pistachio Sables

This past weekend I had a little extra time on my hands to say the least. Aside from a little housekeeping, grocery shopping and usual weekend errand running, there wasn’t much else going on.

The boys were either hanging out with their friends, or at birthday parties… so, what better way to spend my time than to bake a little.

I personally don’t think you can never make/have “too many” chocolate desserts, but unfortunately not all of us are chocolate lovers.



Chocolate Sour Cream Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

It was Thursday night, I was checking out Facebook looking for a good laugh, a cute picture, an interesting post, someone ranting over someone else’s meaningless post, you know some good stuff.

I was about to log out when I came across a post from one of my co-workers in which he was updating us on his status.
