Brownies

09/30/2012

 
Ooey gooey moist melt-in-your-mouth chocolate brownies.  This is the BEST brownie recipe I've ever made.  I would even go as far to say that these brownies are my 'signature dish'.  Whenever I need to bring something to a gathering, I'm always asked to bring these spectacular brownies!  But don't just take my word for it, go make some!

 

Plum Tartelettes

Single serving plum tartelette desserts: yummmm!  I have never baked plums before, and I found that they taste a lot like peaches once they are done.  Since I love peaches too, it turned out swell!  I guess you'll have to try making it and see what you think: do the plums taste like plums or peaches?

 
 
This oil-based pie crust recipe makes a crunchy-crumbly sort of crust.  I love using it for cream and fruit pies.  It's a good recipe to keep handy!

 
 
Instant oatmeal: my new obsession! It is a great neutral breakfast to have before a day full of hiking, scuba diving, or any active event.  You can eat it plain or add any fruit you can imagine. 

 
 
Sometimes you just need a refreshing bite of sushi.  A lot of people forget that you can make sushi without fish.  So when you don't have fish on hand, don't fret!  Make a veggie sushi roll!

 

Kale Chips

Want a healthy snack that you can eat guilt free?  Try these crunchy baked kale chips!  Super simple to make and perfect for a little snack before dinner.

 
 
Pho: a vietnamese noodle soup that is usually served with beef or chicken.  This time I chose to omit the beef or chicken, but they can be easily added if you want them!  The noodles used are made from rice flour and can be purchased in different widths.  I used a wide noodle for this Pho recipe.

 
 
I've been eating a lot of granola lately for breakfast.  Trying to make healthier meals (with less salt, butter, eggs and such).  Granola tastes especially yummy when combined with plain yogurt and fruit (I've been eating sliced peaches and apricots).

 

Cherry Tart

This starry little cherry tart is perfect for a good-sized dessert for one or sweet little treat for two to share.  You can even substitute with strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries if you prefer.

 
 
Graham cracker crumble, cream, mashed bananas, chocolate shavings, and whipped cream:  dessert heaven!
