Made this Barefoot recipe for ladiez brunch and it was a hit. Also, surprisingly easy.

With the caveat that I don’t bake much, these may be the best dessert I’ve ever made. John and I did a little restaurant/bar crawl for belated Valentine’s Day this year, and we finished the night with these for dessert. So good! I got the recipe from Amateur Gourmet, but I subbed walnuts for pecans (just because it’s what I had), omitted the coconut (not a fan in baked goods) and doubled the chocolate chips. The texture is particularly good.
Yay Christmas cookies! I’ll be posting several Christmas cookie recipes here. These ones are less complicated than they may sound.
This dessert is really easy. I’m not huge on the texture of it (it’s sort of pie meets pudding) but others enjoyed it.
The texture of this was a little weird, but it’s an interesting dessert.
John makes ice cream all the time, and he walked me through my first attempt. I had to make some to check off The Perfect Scoop from my cookbook list.
These are a little involved, but quite tasty. Warning – the crust is a crumbly one.
Dude, this ice cream is like crack. Plus John winged it without a recipe and used up the rest of my leftover caramels in the process. Recipe by John.
I made candy! This did not go without hassle, and caramel is still kind of everywhere in our house. BUT I MADE CANDY. Recipe courtesy of Jamie Liu.
This pumpkin pie recipe was pretty good, but I don’t see myself making it my go-to. The filling’s a little jelly-like and it just doesn’t have that traditional pumpkin pie taste that I was looking for. But it’s an interesting recipe, given the addition of canned yams, etc. I’m just going to link rather than reprint, as I followed the recipe exactly* and it’s long. Pictured at right (as you can see, pretty crust is not my strong point).
*Ok, I accidentally put too much salt in the crust. Meaning my crust was salty. Sue me.
