Friday Favorites – Episode 50

If you are trying to watch your weight or cut back on sweets, stop reading. I must apologize right off the bat for the fact that this is another Friday Favorites post all about sweets!

I’d like to think that preparing for the Food Bloggers Bake Sale is the reason that I have sweets on the brain this week…  That is logical!  Then I thought that maybe I could disguise this as a celebration for my 50th Friday Favorites post… Every party needs sweets, right? But, the truth is… I just really like sweets (in moderation, when my willpower allows). Plus, the weather has cooled down a bit here.  So, I’m ready to crank up the oven and do some baking now that it’s not 95 degrees in my kitchen!

Maybe next week I will do a round up of all savory recipes… Ok, probably not!

  • This Peanut Butter Cream Pie with Chocolate Whipped Cream from Evil Shenanigans reminds me of a pie that I used to make before I really started cooking and baking. I won’t go into the dirty details of my recipe, but let’s just say that I’ll be making this one from now on. Doesn’t it look fabulous?!
  • I’m can’t wait to try these S’mores Brownies from How Sweet It Is (a fellow PA food blogger… I still love her even if she is from Pittsburgh). I am contemplating making these for the Food Bloggers Bake Sale next weekend… But I think it would be smarter for me to just make a batch for myself and donate $10 since I will end up buying them all anyway!
  • I am a macaron failure (see here for details), so I am always impressed by those who participate in MacTweets. You absolutely must check out these Celebration Macarons from Eat. Live. Travel. Write. Not only did her macarons turn out perfectly, but she managed to make letters to spell out the word “Cheers”! I kid you not.
  • You have to see this Lemon Layers Cheesecake from She’s Becoming DoughMessTic to believe it. It’s two layers of lemon cake filled with an entire New York style cheesecake. Seriously, you have to see the pictures… It’s incredible. She’s really outdone herself on this one!

  1. I am heading the bake sale for New Jersey and per the Health Department can only sell non-refrigerated items. That leaves a LOT of recipes out of the bake sale. Bummer!
