    Mini Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes-crop-vert

    Who said cupcakes should only be served as a dessert with chocolate, vanilla and some other sweet ingredients? Well, they make for a perfect appetizer as well if you combine the ingredients in the right way.
    Take for example, these chicken pot pie cupcakes, presented by Heather: many of us are a sucker for chicken pot pie as this is a real comfort food, and the fact that with only few ingredients and few time you can make an amazing appetizer makes you wanna try them even more.
    I have done them for New Year’s eve party and everyone enjoyed every bite of them! :D

    Bon appetite!

Deep Dish Peanut Butter Pie

Deep Dish Peanut Butter Pie

 

Lately I’ve been posting lots of vegetarian recipes and healthier versions of some classic ones. Well, I believe is time for some calories :D and a great way to begin with something sweet is a classic peanut butter pie. Well, not so classic since the crust is a really special one: made with chocolate covered pretzels :D
Of course there is also presented a classic version ,where the pretzels are replaced with some Oreos or graham crackers. But be bold and try the pretzels version, at least this way the calories will worth it!

You will need:

  • ¾ cup melted butter
  • 6 cups of crushed pretzels
  • 1 cup of milk chocolate chips
  • ¼ granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
  • 250 g of cream cheese (a soft one)
  • 2/3 cup of peanut butter
  • 2 cups of whipped cream
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Below you can find the instructions for this amazing pie:

  1. First you need to preheat the oven at about 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Start by combining the sugar, butter and crumbs made from the pretzels. Press firmly the resulted composition into a pie pan and it for about 10 minutes. After this 10 minutes, sprinkle some chocolate chips and bake for 5 more minutes. After this 5 minutes the chocolate will be melted and you need to sprinkle it with a spatula or a spoon. Leave it to cool before you fill it.
  3. Let’s continue with the filling: mix together the cream cheese, the peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Add 1/2 of the whipped cream and mix it in the composition. After the composition becomes lighter, add the rest of the whipped cream (but save some for the top layer). Pour the resulted cream into the crust and then add a second layer of filling made from the kept whipped cream mixed with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar to sweeten it. Pour over this second layer and then you either can frozen this pie or refrigerate.

Whenever you feel prepared for an amazing and brilliant taste take a piece and enjoy it. :)

Bloomin’ Onion Bread

Onion Bread

I think this is an interesting idea for an appetizers. If you are tired of serving shrimps or tartars or stuff like this, and you want a much more rustic way to welcome you guests I thinks this bloomin’ onion bread is just what you are looking for.
You can use any kind of bread. I personally would not use white bread, since I do not eat white bread, but a whole grain bread which is also much healthier. It will be even better if you choose to bake your one bread and use seeds in the composition.
Also you can use this bread as a side dish for any other meal. It is a bread to impress if I may say so. :D

Enjoy! :)

Toffee

 

Another toffee recipe :)
I love toffees as they make me think of Christmas and Christmas is my favorite holiday. Also they are simple to do and few ingredients are needed.

  • 1 cup of salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon of corn syrup

  • 1 cup of chopped milk chocolate or chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of almonds (chopped)

Let’s begin cooking: :)

  1. First you need to melt the butter in a sauce pan.
  2. Prepare a cookie sheet, or if you do not have one, coat a jelly roll pan with butter
  3. In the pan were you are melting the butter, add the sugar, the water and the corn syrup and and cook until the composition has a brown caramel color (or as written in the original article a old penny color).
  4. After the colored wanted is achieved quickly pour it in the prepared pan and leave it a few minutes to solidify. Then sprinkle the chopped chocolate or the chocolate chips on top.
  5. The heat of the toffee will melt the chocolate and when this happens you need to spread it with a spatula or a spoon. 
  6. Sprinkle the almonds on top and leave it to cool. When it is completely cool break it into pieces.

Simple and delicious, right? :)

Toffee crunchy

toffee crunchy

This is really a completely sinful dessert, but it’s worth every bite, especially if you make it as a holiday dessert.
And let’s face it…once in a while we all need a wonderful treat :)

You will need:

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 2 stick of butter (salted butter)
  • ½ cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • optional you can use walnuts (chopped)

The cooking is simple, the only problem will be that you have to stir a little more than you do for other desserts.

  1. First you need to melt the butter: together with the water and the sugar put it in a saucepan and heat them at a med/high heat. You need to stir continuously and quickly with a wooden spoon.
  2. Next you will have to do some more stirring: after the ingredients are melted together, turn to a medium heat and continue stirring for at least 10 minutes.
  3. The color you are looking for the composition is a brown caramel one, so when it turns caramel alike, take it off the oven and pour it quickly on a cookie sheet.
  4. After you sprinkle chocolate chips over the toffee and everything is melted over, put the toffee crunchy in the freezer and once is chilled enough you can break it.

Enjoy! :)

Manly-Man Salisbury Steaks

Manly-Man Salisbury Steaks

 

Great idea for a dinner.

Is a stake easy to make, juicy and full of flavors.
