My Pantry

I'm not going to arrange my pantry like a crazy. I'm not going to lie to you and make things fancy for the photos! This is the condition of my pantry, and I bet yours is pretty damn close.

I thought I’d make one of these, because I think it’s super important that you have a properly stocked pantry. If you’re new to cooking or think you dislike it, this will make it easier, and fun! Or something!

and in the interest of awesomeosity, I’m going to look for the best stock photos ever.

A Bryan Creation – Apple Fritter Sandwich

This time, I tried it.

 

I’ve posted a recipe from my friend Bryan on here a while back, it was a random trip to starbucks that turned into some odd sandwich.  But this was something he planned, and has actually had before.

Mini Donuts at the PNE!

 

The PNE, or Pacific National Exhibiton, is our summer fair that shows up for about two weeks near the end of August.

I generally go to the PNE once a year, but I’m not really sure why anymore. Nostalgia I think. It’s generally very packed, hot, and expensive. I don’t go on the rides while the PNE is here, because it’s held at our amusement park, and it’s maybe two times cheaper to go when the fair is gone!

Nalesniki – Polish Crepes

Nostalgia, alll over the place.

Just a quick-ish post. My mother made these for Michael and I last weekend 🙂 I asked. It was one of my favourite things she used to make!

Mini Peach Pies

Yeah these were good AND easy!

 

 

So I went to Donalds Market earlier in the week and they had whole cartons of peaches for $2.99! So I had to buy them and I had to make something.

Brownies for Michelle

They were good!

 

One of my facebook fans straight up asked if I could try and make some brownies she’d had at a fundraiser, and gave me the description. I’m not sure if I came even close, but regardless these were tasty!

I guess I do requests now!

These are my “fudgey brownies with a peanut-buttery milk chocolate topping with mini chocolate chips”.

7 Facts Blogger Game

I looked everywhere for a sesame street reference, but this will have to do instead.

Well I’ve been tagged so I guess I have to participate! 😛

Peach Crumble Coffee Cake

This isn't a coffee flavoured cake, it's a cake you eat with coffee!

 

This is a type of cake my mother used to always make. Especially when we had fresh plums!  This works great with any kind of fruit, and the base is incredibly forgiving.

Dark Chocolate Cheesecake with Peanut Butter Drizzle

Michael LOVED this!

 

I haven’t made a cheesecake in forever. This originally was going to be a vanilla cheesecake with sriracha swirl. But once I made my “sriracha syrup” it was too garlicy for what I was going for, and well.

I WANTED CHOCOLATE!

The Garburator

He ate it, I didn't. My god.

 

I’m not really sure how this came to be, but a Starbucks run turned into this atrocity.

 

Two ginger molasses cookies with peanut butter, sandwiching an apple fritter.

Cherry White Chocolate Scones

I wanted a good cherry recipe, and since everyone else is making clafouti, I went the scone direction.

Atomic Pudding

So chocolatey gooood!

This is a very special recipe, for one, it’s a vintage recipe, but it also has a great story behind it.

Why is it called “Atomic” pudding you ask?

Peanut Butter Bars!

 

Yum yum yum!!

 

 
I think I’ve told you before how much I love peanut butter and chocolate. If not, I apologize. I LOVE IT!!

 
I’ve been sick for a while now, just a cold that wont go away, and I needed something comforting. But that comfort needed to be accessible. So I threw these together with what I had.

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Mousse Cake

 

Yes. I went there.

 

 

I couldn’t really decide what I wanted to make, so I asked Michael to look through some cookbooks I had and just pick one thing to make.

 

This thing was INCREDIBLE. Thanks honey, good choosin’

Blueberry Rhubarb Crumble with Walnut Crust

The best. EVER.

 

 

A while back my mother gave me a giant bag of rhubarb and a giant bag of blueberries, and it was taking up room in the freezer. I’ve been thinking for a while what I wanted to make with them. A coffee cake, maybe some muffins, but since it was so substantial, a crumble was best. I still have a ton of fruit left over, so I can experiment with something else later.

Super Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

FINALLY. Got my peanut butter fix.

 

Lately I’ve been reading everyone’s blogs, and there have been a LOT of posts involving peanut butter and chocolate. This is one of my most favourite combinations. If I have to choose, it’s always the peanut butter related option.

 

 

So I googled a few recipes. I originally wanted monster cookies, because I have a plethora of mixins in my pantry, but didn’t have everything the recipe required. Then I found a peanut butter chocolate chip recipe that looked perfect! I find with cookies, unless you go absoutely crazy, you’re safe to add any extras you feel like.

Chocolate-Vanilla Rice Cereal Treats

 

Loogit em all!

Rice Krispie Treats are probably one of the easiest desserts you can make. I generally don’t make them, but I ended up with a free bag of marshmallows, and thought I could throw some together sometime.
