Chewy Fudge Brownies are my go to easy treat to make to satisfy that chocolate craving. So grab a glass of milk or if you’re like me a cup of tea and enjoy these little gems.
Happy Saturday Everyone!
We are just gearing up for a busy day with this family again today. All is quiet at 6am in this house but complete chaos is about to be unleashed once my four little monsters wake up and get ready to tackle this day. As much as those little guys drive me crazy, I love them to bits.
Do you guys have any idea how hard it is for me to get to the photographing stage of my blog posts? Insanely difficult. Because my kiddos love food. Obviously they took after me…haha. The second I finish making something they are all over the kitchen asking to eat it. So needless to say, when I said “You can’t eat these yet.” there was a lot of whining and disappointed faces.
So who doesn’t love brownies??? I mean Chewy Fudge Brownies??? Chewy and fudge in one sentence is lethal for me. I was on a mission to find the best brownie that was both chewy and fudgy. This was round two of brownie making for me. The first try was too cake like. I really love a decadent chewy brownie and my first batch was nothing like that. So back to the drawing board I went. And guess what? Round 2 was a success!!! These are to die for. Especially if you love chewy brownies.
I decided to try and use cookie cutter and make hear shaped brownie pop with these and they were adorable. Check out the picture below. Great idea for a classroom treat.
These are so super easy to make. You are going to keep this recipe nearby at all times for those chocolatey cravings. Yum yum!
The batter is more of a gooey dough. Just spread that out nice and evenly allover some parchment paper (I was out of parchment so I used foil and cooking spray)
We have returned from our back to back hockey tournaments and are getting into the swing of things again. We sure had great time meeting new families and watching some great hockey. Both boys came home with trophys which was nice. A third place trophy and a first place trophy. Now that summer hockey is over, there won’t be any out of town tournaments for a bit. Which is kind of a bummer because I love exploring the areas that we visit. Restaurants and grocery stores are my favourite because I get a lot of my inspiration for recipes from trying out new dishes and checking out different products at the store.
This particular recipe for no bake cheesecake is not a new found recipe though. It is a favourite of mine from when I was little. My mom used to make this quite often, and I loved it so much. I haven’t had this cake in years. I thought about it often though…lol. I got this recipe from my mom and decided to make it for my family. Although in her recipe there’s a jelly strawberry topping on top. But I messed that up the first time and then ran out of strawberries so I tried it with raspberry coulis and it was amazing too. (Recipe below)
Here are a couple of shots from our time in Minneapolis….
Caught a Minnesota Twins game. It was the first time the boys and I had been to a baseball game. I wan’t too keen on going but it was actually nice. It really helped that I had the most delicious burger EVER!!! at the ball game.
Here is Cohen lining up for a face-off. Such exciting games!
We couldn’t go to Minneapolis without visiting Valley Fair. We haven’t been there in a few years so for the younger boys this was all new. They had a blast, but I sure can’t do rides anymore the way I used to. Enough said…haha.
So here’s the recipe to Baba’s Cheesecake.
Apple Rhubarb Loaf is the perfect accompaniment to a hot cup of tea (or coffee, but my favourite is tea). It is slightly sweet and earthy to give it that comfort food flavour.
So yesterday Amanda’s Daily Dish hit 100 likes on Facebook…yay! I am so excited that so many of you have liked my page enough to follow along with me on Facebook. I’ve got so many recipes and ideas that I want to share. Even my little guys are starting to get into it and are making suggestions as to what I should include on the blog. Such helpful little guys they are.
Jeff (my husband) was also a help when he came home from work the other day with a big bag of rhubarb. A client of his had given it to him and I was so excited because when we lived in our first home we had a big rhubarb patch and I would bake tons of goodies with rhubarb. I never replanted one once we moved and I’ve really missed it since then.
I also had a big bag of apples on hand so that’s how this recipe was created. Apples and rhubarb sounded like it would be a nice match so away we went. The result was a delicious loaf full of fruit (is rhubarb even a fruit? I think maybe it would be a plant? I never thought of that before).
I’m enjoying a piece with my cup of tea while I finish this post up. It is so yummy. Here’s the recipe…
I used sour cream in this recipe for the moisture. It gave the loaf a nice flavour and texture.
Look at those chubby little fingers. Chandon (my 3 year old little guy) really wanted to help.
Enjoy! and Happy Long Weekend
These Reese’s Pieces Cookie Cakes with Nutella Buttercream are to die for. I’m serious they are absolutely heavenly. A soft baked cookie with with Nutella buttercream frosting and crumbled Reese’s Pieces on top.
Howdy ho friends! I have come up with a beauty of a recipe. This one I’ll have to credit to the kiddos.
Do you ever go to the grocery store with the kids? You know what that’s like. Well, when I go with all 4 of my boys it’s chaos. Food if flying off the shelves into my grocery cart. I look away for a second and there’s random stuff in there. I should really pay someone to watch the kids and I would still come out with more money at the end of the day than when I take those food demolishing monsters to the grocery store.
This time it was these Mini Reese’s Pieces and Nutella that made the cut in my grocery cart.
I came up with these soft baked Reese’s Pieces Cookies with Nutella buttercream. They are quite easy to make and are so yummy. I highly recommend you give these a try. No joke, when my husband’s friend tried these he had no words. They’re that good. (not to toot my own horn…lol)
