The greatest teacher, failure is– Yoda
Yes, I just started this Christmas dessert post with a quote from Yoda. I happened to watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi before a whole bunch of cookie failures, so I thought this appropriate.
Also, I’m married to a HUGE Star Wars fan. It starts to rub off. Continue reading
You know what’s confusing? Truffles. Why is a dessert, that is delicious, the same name as a fungus people use pigs to find? Sure, they look similar. But they are pretty much the exact opposite. First, fungus truffles are hella expensive. Second, they don’t even taste the same. You do NOT want to pop a fungus truffle in your mouth when you’re expecting a chocolate treat. Although, I’ve never tasted fungus truffles, so maybe I’m wrong.
I’m pretty sure I would rather have these energy truffles over a fungus truffle. Continue reading
Yay Friday! This week has been a doozy for me. A ton of projects were suddenly due all at once and I have been working to get all of those done. On top of that, this weekend is my sister’s bachelorette party so I have been getting things ready for that! Seriously, how is it possible that my baby sister is getting married?! We were literally just playing with our Barbies and Polly Pockets. Like yesterday. For reals.
Anyway! Because it’s been a crazy week in the Dawson house I don’t have a new recipe for you today BUT do not start sobbing yet! I do have a round-up of all the delicious recipes I have found on all the blogs I follow.
I will have new stuff for you next week, but in the meantime enjoy these recipes as well as all the ones I have over on my recipe page!
Key Lime Pistachio Truffles from The Clean Dish
I am really having a thing with key lime lately. It is the perfect summer treat and there are so many ways to make it. These truffles look amazing!
Grain-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread from Predominantly Paleo
About this time of year, we’re pretty much drowning in zucchini. It’s delicious but the same old zucchini bread can get a little tiresome. I love this chocolate twist!
Avocado Lemon Basil Pesto from Kathy Hester
Along with key lime, I have been having a love affair with pesto this summer. My fridge has not been without a jar of the stuff for more than 2 hours. The lemon basil in this is amazing, but if you can’t find any regular basil still makes a tasty pesto!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Magic Shell from The Lemon Bowl
Be prepared for me to cover everything in this delectable concoction. If you’re smart you should do the same.
Have an awesome weekend and make one of these glorious dishes!
