Swedish Meatballs with Mushroom Cream Sauce
WOW! Where did summer go? If you haven’t noticed, I have been a bit MIA these past few weeks (if you haven’t noticed, it’s ok, I still love you). I have been super busy with getting the kiddos ready for school, and we were actually able to go on a mini vacation, but that is another post. The temperatures are still in the high 90’s here in North Carolina, but I have fall and winter on the mind. I am sick of the heat to tell you the truth. This Swedish Meatballs with Mushroom Cream Sauce was just the right dish to kick off the cool weather that is HOPEFULLY coming our way soon! It is a simple dish, and the meatballs can be easily made ahead of time and froze for later use! SCORE!Serve over a bed of Egg noodles and enjoy!
I have not baked anything in a while. Mostly because it has been soooo darn hot lately! If I could not throw it on the grill, I refused to make it this week. But, sometimes you just need chocolate, and I had a crazy craving for chocolate cake and peanut butter cheesecake. Mt sweet tooth was going through major withdrawal, so I knew it was time to get something in the oven. I could not make up my mind on what to make so I decided to combine my cravings into a Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Cheesecake Filling! The rich chocolate cake and the creamy peanut butter filling was just what I needed. If you are new here, I have a total chocolate and peanut butter addiction, to the extent that I turn a normal breakfast into a chocolate lovers dream. The best part about this recipe is that the cheesecake filling is no bake, so it may look intimidating, but this recipe is super easy to make! Oh and to give it just a little bit more decadence, I frosted it in peanut butter frosting and covered it in a dark chocolate ganache! YUM!
Today is the battle of brownie vs cookie. Over the weekend I wanted to bake, but I had no idea what I wanted to make, all I knew was it HAD to be chocolate! The Boy wanted cookies, so of course, The Girl wanted brownies. That is the norm around here though, they can never agree on anything. So, instead of a battle starting I opted for a happy medium, Brownie Cookies! These little disks of joy are a perfect marriage of a brownie and cookie! The center is super moist and the edges are just slightly chewy. They were a total hit with both of the kids. So much that they were gone in less than 24 hours! So if you are looking for something quick and yummy to satisfy your chocolate craving, these will do just the trick!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffin Bites! Gluten Free and Dairy Free!
I have mentioned in a previous post that breakfast time is always hectic in our house. Children running around, husband rushing out the door, dogs barking, it is like a mad house. I strive to make easy breakfast food that is also easy to eat on the go and these Peanut Butter Chocolate Muffin Bites are just that. Plus, they are gluten free and dairy free, so everyone is happy in house! Just a heads up, I did use my awesome cake pop maker to make them (which I LOVE), but you can use a mini muffin tin or even a cupcake tin. I have included the directions for all three! Drizzle some chocolate syrup over the top and it even makes for a great healthy dessert!
Double Peanut Butter Cake Bars
I am a peanut butter addict. I go through a least a jar a week, I put it on everything from bananas to waffles! I also LOVE baking things that include peanut butter, and these Peanut Butter Cake Bars are a family favorite. The bottom is like a crisp peanut butter cookies, and the center is like a nice fluffy peanut butter cake! Take about a two for one! Add some peanut butter frosting on top, and these will be gone in minutes!
