Strictly speaking, dips aren't actually dessert material unless they're of the sweet variety, but for those who prefer savory bites, a dip can make a fantastic end-of-meal treat or a snack on its own with your favorite dippables, whether they be pita chips, crisps, pretzels or vegetables. I've always been a dip lover and have enjoyed dips my whole life, so I'll often take a good savory dip over a sweet one any day. Ranch and French onion are some of my all-time favorites, and both are so much better when made with fresh ingredients.
Are you a fan of cakes made in mugs? How about quick fat bombs, cheesecakes and other fast desserts? If so, you're like me, so welcome. I LOVE sweets, but I don't love the carbs or calories, not to mention the time it takes to put many sweet dishes together. So when I read about these blender cupcakes that are not only easy to make but also keto-friendly, I figured why not try them?
Anytime I smell coconut, I get a craving for my favorite coffee, which is coconut oil with cinnamon and cream. YUM. Cinnamon is my favorite sweet these days, which is weird since I normally only like it during the holidays. I've come across some really yummy cinnamon recipes and wanted to share some with you.
If you're like me, you might already be tired of cookie season! Girl Scouts are everywhere asking for you to buy cookies and who has the heart to say no? I always say yes if I can but wow can they get expensive AND sugary! At one Girl Scouts stand I saw they were actually selling with a restaurant where you can order shakes made with the cookies themselves! Can you believe it?
Peanut butter is one of my favorite flavors lately, so I was happy to see it included in this list of seven tasty treats that you can make with five ingredients or less. I just love Tasty's videos because they make everything look so simple, and when I try them out they usually are pretty easy to complete.
Fruit is one of my all-time favorite desserts. I could probably only eat fruit-based desserts for the rest of my life and be okay with it. I love a good compote but the best compote has to be one that's pear-based. If you've never had warm pears before, it's something you have to try at some point in your life.
Bread is dessert to me. Sometimes I'm in the mood for cake or a cookie, but bread will always be a tempting treat. Add the famous cinnamon butter that they serve at Texas Roadhouse and it turns into an irrisistable delight! I've made lots of honey and cinnamon butters before but this recipe is very close to what you'd eat at the restaurant.
There's never too much food when it comes to Thanksgiving, but who has room for all of that pie afterward? Sure, you might wait a few hours to indulge, but by then you are probably ready for leftovers anyway. Instead of feasting on whole pies during Thanksgiving, how about planning a few mini desserts to enjoy instead?
If your answer is old potato peelings and something dead, I'm so sorry to hear that. Check your drain and your trash can, friend.
Have you ever attended a cookie exchange? You bring a bunch of cookies to swap with friends along with enough copies of the recipe for everyone to have. Everyone goes home with new recipes and cookies to eat! You can even make it elaborate with some holiday drinks, decorations and so forth, but it doesn't have to be fancy.
