This. Looks. Delicious! {Argentinian Dulce de Leche)

Have you met the Celebration Girl?
She has wonderful posts about recipes, tablescapes, printables and party inspiration.  She did this post a few days ago that literally made my mouth water!  Dulce de Leche is easily my favorite ice cream.  I didn’t even know it was used as a cookie filling, and now that I know, I think I must try that too.  Anyway, she gives three different methods on how to make your own along with pictures and instructions.  Check it out!

These. Look. Delicious! {Mocha Popsicles}

Mocha Popsicles from The Caffeinated Globe looks like just the thing for a summer party!  No recipe there, but I found one {that included pictures} at A Cozy Kitchen!

Mocha PopsiclesRecipe adapted from David LebovitzMakes 8 popsicles, depending on the size of your molds.
I made super strong coffee using my French press. I put 6 scoops of coffee with 3 cups of hot water and let it sit for 5 minutes.  It came out super strong and perfect.  Also, if you don’t have sweetened condensed milk, David says you could substitute using half & half or milk. I would just add a little at a time to taste.
2 cups (500ml) extra-strong coffee or espresso
2/3 cup (160ml) sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 tablespoon of unsweetened dutch processed cocoa powder
Mix the coffee with the sweetened condensed milk. Add the tablespoon of cocoa powder. Taste, and add a bit more milk or chocolate powder, if desired. (A spoonful or two is fine, but any more and the popsicles won’t freeze as hard.)
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until sold. Mine took about 8 hrs.  To loosen the popsicle out of its mold, hold under warm water until it slides out. Voila! Awesome Mocha Popsicles.

Enjoy my party pals!

Tuesday Has a Recipe 10.12.10 {Fair Fried Dough with Maple Cream Topping}


The last two days we took our annual trip to New Hampshire to the Sandwich Fair. My mother-in-law lives and owns a business in North Sandwich, and we always go up at least for the day.

Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the Sandwich Fair, and the first annual Skillet Throwing Contest, which my darling mother in law talked me into entering. I was able to throw the 4 pound cast iron skillet fairly straight, much to my surprise and delight, and gave it a good 33 foot toss. Nothing compared to the winner’s 57 foot launch, but I was happy to have not hurt anyone!
I shared some Fried Dough with cream maple glaze with my 8 year old early in the day, and it was by far, the best fried dough I ever had! Inspired by this, I am posting a recipe for fried dough you can make at home from Meeyauw’s Recipes and maple cream sauce recipe that I think would work!
For the maple cream:
Combine 1 cup pure maple syrup, 1/2 cup heavy cream and about 2 tablespoons butter in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil.
More about my eventful weekend to come, with some real party pix! WOOT!

Tuesday has a recipe {VEGAN Pumpkin Pie!} 10.5.10

Today’s recipe comes from a fellow mogger blommy, Marci from The Balancing Act in Scrubs and Stilletos and her Meatless Monday series!

From her blog:

This blog is mostly about my 2 sweet little boys, Levin and Brighton, about being a Mother, our Vegetarian/Vegan diet/Green Living/Recycling/Saving the animals/Earth-loving/Hippie Lifestyle. Were not your ordinary Family!

She is definitely a great girl to follow as she chronicles her ‘life less ordinary’! And without further ado, I give you…

Vegan Pumpkin Pie!



Visit her blog for the recipe and directions, and leave her some comment love! Why is this extra great? Because every year for the holidays, we have some friends and family who are vegetarians or vegans – and now I know what I can do to show them I love them that much more! And you can too!
