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!
Triple Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls
I have admitted to my chocolate addiction, and that is the first step in facing an addiction. But, these Triple Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls threw me right back into my addiction and I am perfectly okay with that. I have never understood how cinnamon rolls are classified as a breakfast food. They are super sweet and yummy, don’t get me wrong, but when I think of breakfast I think of something hardy like bacon and eggs. Unlike my oh so sweet Hubby who believes that if you put the word breakfast before something it makes it breakfast. Like breakfast cake and breakfast candy. No joke people…
So to satisfy his ever growing sweet tooth I took to Pinterest (of course, where else would I go?). I came across this recipe from Chef in Training for Cake Batter Cinnamon rolls. They looked amazing, but I knew the first thing Hubby would ask is “where is the chocolate”? So I opted to change it up a bit and do a chocolate version. These could easily be a breakfast or dessert in my opinion. And if there is a way to justify eating chocolate for breakfast I am all for it!
5 Cheese Baked Macaroni and Cheese
I must start off with a warning. If you are on a diet, slowly back away, or stay and lick the screen until your heart is content! I won’t judge… I swear! Ever just have one of those days that you had no idea what to make for dinner? Yesterday was that for me, and sometimes I throw together something not so great, and others become new family favorites. This Macaroni and Cheese is now a family favorite. Who knew by throwing in some butter, bacon grease, flour, cream and every last bit of cheese in your house could create something so mouthwatering? I may try doing that more often!
