My favorite go to blog for Asian food is “The Woks of Life“. This family of four make some of the most beautiful and authentic Asian dishes you’ve ever seen. I have enjoyed learning their techniques and ingredients that go into Asian cooking. After trying many of their recipes, I have to say they are always delicious and easy to make. This recipe is my take on their Chicken and Broccoli with Brown Sauce. This made enough for a meal plus leftovers for lunch the next day. I went with veggies that my family likes and added some chili oil for a spicy kick.

Who doesn’t love truffles? They really dress up a plate and taste so decadent. I didn’t always have such a sweet tooth but as I’ve gotten older I appreciate a good chocolate indulgence every now and then. A dollop of edible cookie dough covered in dark chocolate with a sprinkle of sea salt will make your taste buds sing! Way better than a box of chocolates! Once made they can be refrigerated for 2 weeks or frozen for a couple of month’s. That is . . . unless you can’t help yourself from eating them all.

I have a real weakness for homemade cinnamon rolls! It takes all my willpower not to eat the whole pan full. The smell of warm brioche, with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar is so intoxicating. Since a snow day was in the forecast I went out and got my supplies ready for a day of baking. There’s something special about baking on a cold day while looking out the window at falling snow. When the time finally came to pop these rolls in the oven I was rewarded with such a wonderful aroma. I couldn’t wait to drizzle the glaze over top and taste one. They are so light and buttery with the sweetness of cinnamon and sugar. As far as pastries go, these might be my favorite!

A few years ago my best friend Paula introduced me to Tiramisu. I don’t think I had ever tasted it until she suggested we share a slice. All I knew it was an Italian dessert. That first taste could only be described as luscious and decadent all at the same time. Who could disagree after tasting that creamy goodness with coffee undertones. It was absolutely delicious! It’s taken awhile but I finally have a recipe worthy of sharing. I found a great tutorial video from Sally’s Baking Addiction that helped me put it all together. I used her method and steps but changed a few ingredients as well as trimming the recipe in half. For me, chilling the dessert in the freezer for about 10 minutes prior to serving made it even tastier. If you haven’t tried a slice of Tiramisu you don’t know what you’re missing!
