Crazy Feta

Now that summer is in full swing, are you in need of any new dip recipes?  You must try this awesome recipe for Crazy Feta from Jessica over at How Sweet It Is.

Feta cheese, roasted garlic, and roasted jalapenos......it makes for a tasty dip with a kick that you'll love!  I'm not a person that loves spicy foods.....but this one is just spicy enough that it doesn't get in the way of taste.  Let your salsa and guacamole take a little vacation and give this a try.

Go to How Sweet It Is for the recipe....and Enjoy!

Knock You Naked Brownies

Hee hee.......you gotta love a name like that right?

The Pioneer Woman has done it again!  Another fantastic recipe, that couldn't be easier to throw together.  German Chocolate cake mix to make a brownie??  Who would have thunk??

This recipe only has a handful of ingredients.....but you will make your friends super duper happy if you make this, I promise!!  We ended up serving it on 4th of July topped with some homemade vanilla bean ice cream and whipped cream.  Totally over the top, and totally delicious!  Calories consumed on a holiday don't count, right?


Check out The Pioneer Woman for the recipe.....and Enjoy!

TWD: Hazelnut Biscotti

For this round of Tuesdays with Dorie: Baking with Julia we've got Hazelnut Biscotti.  I wasn't sure if I really wanted to make these.....I actually love hazelnut (which apparently a lot of people don't), but I'm generally not a big biscotti person.  I loooooove coffee.....but I mainly drink iced coffee, and since biscotti seems like a hot coffee/tea kind of thing, I don't usually go for them......but I decided to give it a go.....

These are delicious!  Even without the coffee they taste fantastic......just the right amount of sweetness, and a fantastic hazelnut flavor that is enhanced by the addition of Frangelico.  A very simple recipe to put together.....I think the trickiest part was getting the dough into a somewhat log shape before the first baking.....it's super sticky!  After that is was smooth smailing.....oh and the nutty aroma was great while it was baking!

For the recipe, check out this round's hosts......Jodi at Homemade and Wholesome, and Katrina at Baking and Boys.  Check out Tuesdays with Dorie for the other baker's results......and Enjoy!

Club: Baked - Malted Waffles

So I'm slowly getting the hang of my new kitchen.  I was so used to my old kitchen.....I knew where everything was and totally had my routine down.  Now my kitchen layout is completely different, so I constantly have to stop and think about where things are.  I'll get there.....just have to keep baking!!

For this round of Club: Baked we're talking breakfast.  And one of my favorite kinds of breakfast.......waffles!  These are Malted Waffles, and their secret ingredient is malt powder.  They definitely give them a bit more flavor than your ordinary waffles....and the crunchy parts seemed a bit crunchier to me.  I let my second batch cook even longer, and I think they were even better......lots of crunch on the outside and tender on the inside.  They were a hit!  Even our 3 year old ate two of them!

For the recipe, check out Teri at The Freshman Cook, and to see the other baker's results check out Club: Baked.......Enjoy!!
