So we’re currently galavanting around the Michigan countryside, so no need for our usual Menu Monday post.
Instead, I thought I would gather my favorite, drool-worthy dessert recipes from Pinterest. I’ve made all of these myself, and can attest to the Yummy Factor of these recipes!
Homemade Hostess Cupcakes – Recipe from Browneyedbaker.com
I made these cupcakes for the first time for an Olympics Opening Ceremony party. There are MANY steps to this, but the payoff was absolutely delicious! I’m definitely making these again the next time there’s an ‘Merica themed party!!
Mint Oreo Brownie Ice Cream Cake – Recipe from lifeloveandsurgar.com
I was so intimidated when my husband said, for his birthday, he’d like a homemade ice cream cake! I had never made one before. When I found this recipe on Pinterest, I thought it looked easy enough. So right!! And the combo of brownie and Oreo was so yummy!
Homemade Buckeye Candies – From cookscountry.com
Unfortunately, like most Cook’s Illustrated & Cook’s Country recipes, you must be a “subscriber” to access them…. so obnoxious. This recipe is similar. Anyway, these Buckeyes are so delicious!! I make a huge batch of these for the holidays, or when my husband wants a tasty treat. I keep these in the freezer when it’s just us consuming them. They’re actually really good frozen! Plus, since I’m from Ohio, these make my heart smile.
Angel Food Cake – From Martha Stewart
I am a sucker for Angel Food Cake. I love the light, airy texture. Not to mention the fact that it’s fat free. I make a simple sauce with strawberries, and drizzle over top of the cake. I usually just make an angel food cake from a box (always a winner!) but decided to try a good ol’ Martha Stewart version, just for kicks. It was fab!! Now, in a pinch, the box version works as an easy dessert! But if you’re wanting to roll up your sleeves and make one from scratch, try this one! (I didn’t make the elderberry sauce the recipe describes. Please, Martha Stewart – where does one find elderberries when you don’t live in Maine?)
I’ll be back to the regular Menu Monday next week. In the meantime, if you’re looking for other yummy dessert recipes, check out my Desserts Pinterest board!
