Homemade Peanut Butter Ice Cream – (no cooking required)

Homemade Peanut Butter Ice Cream eatathomecooks

 

I have made a lot of homemade ice cream.  But this one just may be my favorite flavor of all.  It combines my two favorite foods – ice cream and peanut butter – so it’s no wonder that I love it.  My family loved it too.

You’re going to want to try this.  It has just 5 ingredients and is so simple to make.

I really wanted to make peanut butter ice cream that had ribbons of peanut butter in it, like my favorite store bought flavor.  I used the idea for Peanut Butter Magic Shell from Picky Palate and altered it for ice cream.

I didn’t end up with thick ribbons of peanut butter.  It mixed in to the ice cream a bit more than that, but there were still thin ribbons and bits and pieces of peanut butter.  This makes the taste more intense than just having the peanut butter smoothly incorporated with the other ingredients.  I really like the way this method keeps the peanut butter mostly separate from the vanilla ice cream.

Baby Cannoli Cakes

You are going to love these!

All that chocolate ganache.  All that delicious cannoli filling stuffed in a chocolate chip muffin.

{Did she just say chocolate chip muffin?}

Yep!  That’s right!  This muffin has officially crossed the line into dessert.

I’ve been wanting to try this since I first made Chocolate Chip Muffins.  The idea comes from The Cake Mix Doctor cookbook.  I absolutely love that book.  Anne Byrn has a recipe in there for Cannoli Cake that is divine.

I have to say though, my family agreed that the baby cakes version is better.  The muffins are not as tender and sweet as the cake.  And muffins have a bit of a crust that holds up to the thick, creamy filling better than the cake does.  [Read more...]

Chocolate Cake with Cappuccino Frosting

This cake is all about the frosting.  Oh my goodness!  I don’t know why I never thought to do this before.

The coffee flavored butter cream is delicious eaten from a spoon or licked from the bowl.  But save some for the cake, because it’s a perfect pairing with chocolate cake.

I don’t have any ingredient pictures to share with you this time.  I may have been so excited about this recipe idea, that I forgot to snap a photo.   [Read more...]

Nutella Muffins

The outside looks like a plain vanilla muffin.  But inside there’s a creamy pocket of Nutella hiding.

Can it get any better?

I don’t think so.

Loy says dessert-like muffins should be called “Muffcakes”.  I agree completely.

Here’s how you make this magic – and please do go straight to your kitchen to make these.  You will love yourself for it!  [Read more...]

Maraschino Cherry Cake

Isn’t that the prettiest pink cake?

I’m not known for beautiful cakes.  They usually turn out lopsided with crumbs in the frosting.  So I’m really happy with how this turned out.

The idea is not my own.  I saw the Cherry Vanilla Cake on Jam Hands and couldn’t resist trying it.  I altered Ali’s recipe in several ways.  She used the seeds of a vanilla bean, which sounds scrumptious, but I didn’t have any.  I swapped water for milk and butter for oil.

And I decided to frost it with whipped topping.  My original plan was to use Cool Whip, but then I remembered a recipe shared a few weeks ago on Ingredient Spotlight for homemade whipped topping.  That’s what I decided to try and I’ll share the recipe on on Thursday. [Read more...]

Lemon Cheesecake Dessert

Still looking for a dessert for Easter?  Here you go!

This is the “cheesecake” I grew up with.  Unlike the real deal, this one is light with a hint of lemon.  It’s also no-bake, so it’s easy to make.

Frozen Mocha Marble Loaf

If you’re looking for a dessert you can make ahead of time, that’s full of chocolatey, coffee goodness, this is it!

I made this for our Valentine’s Day dinner.  The recipe came from The Sweets Life.  Natalie linked it up on Ingredient Spotlight, the week we focused on sweetened condensed milk. Natalie has all kinds of scrumptious recipes on her site.

I thought I might serve this with chocolate syrup or even hot fudge, but it doesn’t need any embellishment.  The smooth mocha and creamy vanilla on a chocolate cookie crust is all that’s needed.

Strawberry Lemonade Cookies with Pink Lemonade Frosting

Craving a pink-pink, sweet, sunshine-y bite of Valentine’s?

Here you go!

I woke up one morning a few weeks ago and the idea for this recipe popped into my mind.  I’m not sure why that happens to me sometimes, but it’s a lovely way to wake up.  That’s how the idea for S’mores Pie came to me too.

Anyway…I’d seen this post for Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies.  It brought to mind the strawberry cake mix that I’d had in my pantry.  I decided to combine it with pink lemonade. Flavor blast!

At first bite, the cookies taste almost too sweet and lemonade-y.  But then you want another bite and another.  Then pass me another cookie please.  These are good!  Like dropping bites of sunshine right into the middle of winter.

Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip and Cranberry Cookies

Last year, I saw recipes for cookies like this floating around the internet.  A friend brought some to my house and they were so good.  How can you go wrong with white chocolate chips and cranberries?

I decided to make them yesterday, but didn’t want to look up the recipe.  Googling is so hard, you know?

So I tweaked the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip recipe from the back of the Walmart brand oat box.  As soon as I finished making them, I noticed the recipe on the back of the Craisin package.  Oh well.  My tweaked recipe tasted buttery, with the sweet-tart flavors of the white chips and cranberries.  And the recipe made a lot.  Enough to munch and freeze some for later.
