Chocolate Topped Peppermint Cheesecake #FifteenCheesecakes

This post contains affiliate links.

Today I’m joining in a fun cheesecake event!

Myself and 15 other bloggers lots of other bloggers (we’re in a celebrating mood!) are all celebrating Camilla’s (from Culinary Adventures with Camilla) 15th Wedding Anniversary!

It’s always so inspiring to see people celebrating a milestone marriage and sticking it out through thick and thin!

When they got married, Camilla & her husband served cheesecake instead of the traditional wedding cake and that is why we’re sharing cheesecakes today!

Brownies

This post contains affiliate links.


Dude had spring break this week, so he spent some more time in the kitchen!  Today he decided to whip up some brownies from scratch (something I’ve only done once before!!)

This recipe for brownies touts whole wheat flour (which he happily added himself) with a slightly drier, more cake-like texture.

Now here’s Dude:

Blueberry Pie



It’s the first day of spring!!!  The sun is shining, the snow is melting, the birds are singing….ahhhh.

Don’t blueberries make you think of spring?


Once I start seeing fresh blueberries in the stores, I know spring is right around the corner.

Challah


Ok.  Before we go any further, I’m Catholic, not Jewish.  But Catholicism does have its root in Judaism (Jesus was a Jew, after all), so I wanted to try my hand at a traditional Challah Bread this Easter.  My mom also makes an amazing overnight French Toast with Challah every Easter, so I wanted to help out by bringing the bread, instead of having to track down somewhere to buy some.

Thin Mint Pie #PiDay


Happy Pi Day!!

This one is super exciting because the date matches the first 8 digits of pi!  Wow!

3.1415926

I had planned to have this post go live at
3-14-15 at 9:26 am 
but then, I decided to join in on Terri's (from Love and Confections) Pi Day event and 9:26 would've been a bit too late to post!

Actually, I had it go up at 5:26 am my time...so it was 9:26 somewhere, right?

Wait…is my geek showing?

Ok, ok, the pie.

Chocolate and mint is one of my very favorite flavor combinations.  This lovely pie has both flavors perfectly balanced to mimic my favorite girl scout cookie: Thin Mints!!

Plus is green for St. Patrick’s day later this week!

Perfection!

Pan Broiled Steaks with Whiskey Sauce #FoodNFlix

It’s Food ‘n Flix time!

FoodnFlix

If you’re new here, Food ‘n Flix is a super fun club wherein participants watch the movie of the month and then cook something inspired by the film (and anyone can participate!)

This month’s movie was the John Wayne Classic, The Quiet Man hosted by Joanne from What’s on theList?

I’ll start off by saying that Hubs was super excited for this one.  Everyone in his family is a huge John Wayne fan.  Me?  I just haven’t seen that many John Wayne movies.  So when this one was not a cowboy film and instead took place in Ireland, I was quite confused!  And also I was being super dense and didn’t connect Ireland and St. Patrick’s Day until the movie was half over…duh.

So obviously the inspiration had to be Irish!

During the movie, I noticed a whole lot of meat and potatoes…and beer!

Falafel Burgers #SecretRecipeClub



It’s March Secret Recipe ClubTime!  In SRC, members are secretly assigned another participating blogger and then whip up something delicious from their recipe archives.

This month, I was assigned Corey’s blog, Learning Patience.  Corey is a world traveler, loves food, and loves to run.

I love being assigned bloggers who have been part of SRC for a long time.  It’s like bumping in to an old friend…in fact, Corey had my blog a year and a half ago and totally made one of my recipes better!  You should definitely check it out!
