Spiced Rum Butter

I mentioned in the past what a fantastic idea compound butters are.  I don’t think you are to be finishing a sentence with ‘are’ but in this day and age of Presidents and Kardashians.  Do we really have standards anymore? 

Vanilla Dreamcake, I mean Cheesecake

I have a love/hate relationship with cheesecake.  I love to eat it but baking a cheesecake pisses me off.  Once I figured out the secret to an amazing cheesecake my life hasn’t been the same.  I know you’ll agree.  Feel free to enter this cheesecake in your local county fair and be prepared for stardom!! When I was growing up my Mom made the best cheesecake I ever had in my life. 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.  

Quiche-us Christ

I never liked Quiche because I grew up with an angry Mom.  Now I’m her angry son.  It’s not that we’re really angry.  We’re just angry when someone does something really stupid and people go crazy for it.  It’s one of those “Why didn’t I think of that” moments.

Butterscotch Custards

Damn I love custards!!  Desserts are always a must have.  Even when you’ve eaten so much that you feel like you are going to puke but the waiter asks if you want dessert.  You look at your dining company and you all shrug your shoulders and say “We’ll look at the menu”.

Challah French Toast, Cherries and Cardamom Vanilla Goat Cheese

I had some challah leftover from the challah and cherry panini, I posted this about two weeks ago and hopefully you checked it out and even more so, you actually made one for yourself.  It’s certainly not difficult and completely worth your time and energy.  After making the challah and cherry panini I had plenty bread, cherries and goat cheese leftover.   I’m sure you’ve heard me go on and on about waste and bad management.  I think it’s a crime to just throw away food and be wasteful or just lazy.  

Thai-Chai-Chata

It’s times like these when I hate myself.  I was talking with a coworker that asked me “don’t you just hate these people?”  To which I thought, I jokingly say I hate someone but I don’t really hate anyone.  Hate is a strong word and I prefer not to use it.  I will use it, but I prefer not to.
