Frangelico Frozen Mudslide

What we have here for you today is what everyone needs to end the perfect dinner. A dessert and cocktail all rolled into one. A boozy frozen concoction that is deliciously rich, cool, and satisfying.

One sip of this mudslide and you will discover just as I did, that no matter how hard you try to set it down and enjoy it at a normal pace, you will be completely powerless.

It could very well be attributed to the fact that there is Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur and ice cream involved.

Figure Friendly Strawberry Cheesecake

A few weeks ago a very special lady(Abuela) celebrated her 92nd birthday. I decided to show my love for Abuela by baking something tailored especially for her diet. Abuela suffers from diabetes, so I was careful and took that into consideration.



Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Panna Cotta

I think most of us can relate to this panna cotta, in the sense that we all have layers and multiple aspects that make us unique (just like ogres have layers).

Take me for example, from 9-to-6 I am just your average .com software engineer. Once I get behind the wheel, I am transformed into Mario Andretti/Danica Patrick (don’t even try to cut me off). Then, as soon as I get home I’m simply “mom” and “babe”.

But, once I happen to set foot into the kitchen I am immediately transformed into my “other” alter-ego with it’s own set of dimensions. Self-taught pastry chef/mixologist/photographer/blogger A.K.A. Daydreamer Desserts.

Which brings me back to the Panna Cotta I’m sharing with you today. Both dimensions of this panna cotta are very unique, yet the combination of the two make for an incredible experience. The dark chocolate layer provided by the Nestlé® Toll House® Dark Chocolate Morsels can be described as intense, rich and alluring while the raspberry layer can be described as tart, refreshing, and exciting.

Speaking of exciting… that was exactly how I felt when Nestlé® chose ME to participate in their Dark Chocolate Pinspiration contest. The winner will be selected based on the highest number of Re-Pins and Likes. So please, please, please take a sec and Re-Pin and like my creation for me. (I’m a march baby so that can be your gift to me, easy peasy) :)

Voting will be open from March 1 – March 31, 2013.
