Nostalgia, alll over the place.

Just a quick-ish post. My mother made these for Michael and I last weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ I asked. It was one of my favourite things she used to make!

Mini Peach Pies

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”.

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! ย 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!

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.
