Cheesecake Enchiladas

If you’ve been following my pastry and writing blog then you’re probably a fan of me almost as much as I am of myself.  You would also notice that I like to make things in burrito and taco form. I actually don’t really like to make these things in taco and burrito form but I’m kinda forced too.  My assistant is Mexican and anything that is in a burrito or taco is, in his eyes, delicious. I made White Chocolate Rice Pudding a year back and he was eating this for days and got tired of it.  I was making him lunch one afternoon after he got done cleaning the lobby of my apartment building.  Not that I own the building or anything but I make him clean it anyway because I want to live somewhere nice. Someday, I just might.  Until then he’s stuck cleaning.  When I got out the bowl of White Chocolate Rice Pudding, he dropped his shoulders and whined like a little kid.  “Ah no, I’m tired of the rice pudding.” “I’m going …

Quiche in a Bread Loaf

The quiche in a bread loaf idea actually came out of an hallucination that I had. I think it’s considered an hallucinations. I’m not clear on the definition of a hallucination. I’ll just tell you the story and you let me know.

Orange Ice Cream with Pistachios and Cinnamon Tequila Cherries

Fun Fact: I had made the Cherry Tequila Sunrise as an afterthought.  I originally soaked the cherries to make this ice cream.  When you’re not looking or paying attention and you just let go and go with life’s flow.  That’s when good things happen.  Life is like that.  Unless you’re driving.  I’ve let myself go and wandered while driving and almost took out a guardrail.  A dog.  Some bushes.  Other cars. People. 

Vanilla Jell-O Pudding Buttercream

Is this considered a food hack??  I guess it depends on who you ask.  When I was growing up you’d be considered a lazy bastard.  Nowadays, everyone is just too damn sensitive so it’s not nice to call people lazy bastards.  We have to call it a food hack.  I get it now.  You’re not a lazy bastard, it’s a food hack.  Wink, wink…

Cherry Tequila Sunrise

Fun fact:  It’s called a Tequila Sunrise because you drink it when you wake up in the morning. I don’t know if that’s true.  Actually, I’m sure it’s not.  I’m not going to Yahoo it to even find out.  Because I don’t care.  I myself think it’s pathetic and just downright sad to drink first thing in the morning.  Doesn’t mean I don’t, I just think it’s sad. For me though, thankfully I don’t crawl out of bed until noon.  I don’t prefer this time but my body does.  He’s a stubborn son of a bitch.  I lay in bed in the morning and say, “Oh man summers almost over.  I should get up and go outside and enjoy as much as possible.”  Then my body laughs and we go back to sleep. Tequila Sunrise is right up there for me as a favorite drink.  I’m more of a beer drinker but in the morning..err afternoon, while I’m getting ready for the day I prefer something a little more on the fruit side or healthier side. I’m …
