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 …

Baileys Tiramisu

When she threw it on the table it gave a thud as if she dropped a cylinder block on the table.  It was dense yet creamy and delicious!  Everyone loved it. I’ve tried to recreate it without my Mom’s recipe because according to her, “I don’t know where the hell that recipes at and I’m not digging to find it.” I think this recipe comes pretty damn close to Mom’s.  Not quite as dense but creamy as hell!!  I love it and quite proud of it.  Of course, I will never even come close to my Mom’s cheesecake but it will have to suffice. …

Toffee Malt Cookies

If you’re not familiar with malt.  Familiarize yourself with it.  Just not here.  I’m not going to go into detail as to what it is or how it came about.  Because I’m not sure myself and every time I try to tell you people something I get that one asshole emailing me telling, “That’s not true.”  They have nothing else better to do than sit on the internet and tell people they’re wrong.
