Nothing says delicious to me more than the combination of raspberries and chocolate. A truly decadent combination if there ever was one. Enter this Chocolate Raspberry Tart. Raspberry jam filling and a heart ganache on top. Definitely to be served with whipped cream as it is so rich. Delicious!
Cranberries and toasted walnuts. For me, these count as winter flavors. Sort of like apples tend to be autumn flavors. It’s funny how my brain associates flavors with times of the year, eh? Seeing there is still snow in the air and the Winter Olympics are on the TV, winter food is fair game right about now, so I thought these Cranberry Chocolate Chip and Toasted Walnut Blondies to be perfect for an afternoon snack. And foolproof, I might add.
Happy Anniversary to CSPS! It’s been 8 years since I started this silly endeavor and happy to say that I still love it very much. It’s helped me in so many ways, I can’t even count. So to mark the occasion, here are some Chambord Royale Mini Cupcakes (Champagne Cupcakes and Chambord Raspberry Frosting. Happy Happy!
Happy Valentine’s Day! OK, it’s still a full on 10 days until Valentine’s Days, but I like to make cookies ahead of time. And Linzer Cookies it is, because I seem to *always* make Linzer Cookies at Valentine’s Day. This year, I went with some of both my standard (raspberry) but also Passion Fruit, which is a jam that is harder to find. Search around for a bit – it’s worth it (note: I found it in a Latin American bodega… language lesson of the day is that passion fruit in Spanish is Maracuya!)
A yummy sandwich / panini with a silly name! As you may know, I have a thing for figs… fresh figs, dried figs, fig jams and butters… all yummy additions and lend this “something” to sweet and savory things. IN this case, I used Trader Joes fig butter on a grilled cheese with bacon, hence the silly name.
