I was inspired by a similar recipe I saw on Pinterest, but needed to make them 24 hours in advance and wanted something that wouldn't dry out. These came out wonderful and were easy to put together. The cream puffs can be found in the freezer section
I made the most wonderful Baklava on ethnic night in gourmet class. I hadn't made it in a while and started craving it when I saw this little shortcut in a magazine at the doctor's office. (The best part about the wait is scanning the magazine rack!) Also, if you want to get even more fancy and creative, top with a dollop of Nutella or chocolate fudge, or even an chocolate mint bar.
This is an adopted recipe from Mean Chef. Mean Chef says: This is an elegant and yummy dessert that is sure to please you and your guests. Please wait until it is strawberry season in your area, for the most tastiest results.
DH and I went to the Southern Women's Show in Raleigh back and April and saw a presentation on cookies by the White Lily Flour company. The cookies were really good and I wanted to save the recipes for safekeeping. I haven't made these myself yet, so let me know how they are if you make them before me!
What a great pound cake! I found this recipe on the wrapper of Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chips. I am a pound cake finatic so I had to try it. We LOVED it. Give it a try. You can never go wrong with a Hershey's recipe.
I've been making this wonderful pie for years. It's so easy and tasty. Everyone wonders what's in it. This pie can bake while you eat dinner and then, voila...hot apple pie for dessert. Yum!
UPDATE: I've been asked if instant pudding mix is OK--yes! When the recipe was published there was no instant; tried the instant in it--works fine! LOL
I like to get creative with boxed cake mixes. It's more convenient and less time consuming than making cakes from scratch. The mayonnaise in this cake makes it really moist. You cannot tell the mayonnaise is in it. Since mayonnaise is made with eggs and oil, there is no need to add oil to this recipe and it uses less eggs. Instead of the 3 large eggs the directions on the cake mix box calls for, this recipe calls for 2 large eggs.
While it takes slightly longer to prepare this recipe than a box mix, the resulting moist, delicious cake makes it VERY worth the little extra time. I consider this 'perfect' chocolate cake. This cake is excellent with both with Recipe #261024 and Recipe #208959 (the dark flavor version). (I use Recipe #95416 when I'm decorating the cake.) I love how the leftovers are still moist even a day or two later. (I store my loosely covered with plastic wrap.)
My father adores this cake with Recipe #261024 on it. For his birthday, Father's Day etc. I make him cupcakes with the icing on them and individually wrap them. He keeps them in his freezer for when he wants "a piece of cake". He claims they are as good as when they are fresh.
(Even though it isn't where I got the recipe from so I can't vouch for it, reviewers have said it is the recipe on the Hershey's cocoa can. I would recommend using their Special Dark Cocoa if possible.)
Traditionally Greek. Always good. Once baked, the baklava has to stand for 3 hours to overnight to absorb the syrup into its layers. Whereas it is most common to find baklava made entirely with walnuts here in Greece, I prefer a combination with almonds. Sometimes I'll make the baklava using pistachios, or sometimes a 1/2-1/2 mixture of pistachios and almonds. They're all great variations on a delicious theme.
This recipe was given to me years ago by a friend who was known as the "go to person" for desserts at work. It does takes some short cuts & purists may not like that. But it sure does taste good & it is SO much easier than traditional baklava. I prefer this recipe to the ones with honey.
I made this cake last year for a Christmas party. When I got home, I had 25 pieces of paper asking for the recipe. It is a simple, easy cake to make, but the finished product tastes just like ding dong cakes. If you want a cake that is impressive and want to get raves, this one is it bar-none.
My favorite cake recipe is Whipping Cream Cake. It's a variation on the pound cake I fell in love with in the corner delis in New York sold by the slice wrapped in celophane. It's fancy enough for company with raspberry sauce and extra whipped cream, or great just plain in my lunchbox the next day.
