Cookie Pizza

Hey sorry I have not been around much. I have been busy. Life tends to get in the way of doing fun things. Or am I taking a break from challenges in the kitchen to do easy things. I can get so overwhelmed by trying something new that it hinders me from moving forward. Any ways not to keep you from stopping by and checking out what I am up to I want to show you what I have been doing. Today I made cookie pizzas. They were so much fun. I made one with brownie base and the other with a chocolate chip base then loaded on the ganache and toppings. Looks so good. They are going to Ben's work. I like to send stuff over there every now and then. Also this weekend they all have to work overtime. So this should brighten there days. If they make it to the second day and if I know these guys it will be gone on Saturday.

 This is the chocolate chip pizza cookie.

This is the brownie pizza cookie. Yum I say.

St. Patricks Day Cupcakes

So I was bumming around on the internet this am and stumbled upon Chocolate Guinness cupcakes. I had made once before a Chocolate Guinness Cake. Loved it! It was the best chocolate cake I had ever made and eaten. So these cupcakes looked like they would be really good. They would be if they were anything like the cake. So off to the LC (Liquor Commission) for my Guinness Extra Stout. Which I did not have on hand. We should stock it more often as it makes for a very delicious and moist chocolate cake. Went to the LC and they were out of Guinness Extra Stout. Oh no now what? Well the guy recommend another brand that would be as good he said. It was O'Hara's Irish Stout. O.K. lets try that then. Will you really be able to tell the difference? So now on to the cake making. Turned out great. The recipe was huge so cakes all around for many people. Ben will bring a bunch to work. We will have some for bible study and just some to snack on. How is a girl to lose weight when she keeps making all this good stuff to eat. I don't know. But boy those Chocolate cupcakes with ganache spread on top and then Bailey's Buttercream icing on top of that. Yummy goodness!! I can't stand beer just on its own but in cake it is heavenly. You can't even taste it. Well that was the extent of my celebrating St. Paddy's day. But I think that was a good way. The guys at Ben's work will agree I think. Hey Curtis?
 This is only some of the cupcakes it made like 42. When a recipe makes that many you have got to share.

Gone So Long

Hey sorry I have been gone so long. I have a lot on my mind these days. Working out some major life stuff. I will be back at this baking thing again. I promise. I realized the other day that I have never made cinnamon buns. I really need to. They are soooo tasty. So maybe that will be next on my list.
