Individual Brownie Cakes with Dark Chocolate and Irish Cream

2013-11-11_IndivBrownieCakes-300px

Recipe inspiration can come from anywhere.  Sometimes my recipes are inspired by a dish I had at a restaurant or by some great ingredients I found at the farmer’s market.  There are also times when a recipe is the result of something in the fridge that I’m just trying to get rid of. This is…

Octoberfest Cupcakes

It’s no secret that a lot of the recipes I post here (especially the desserts) are a direct result of something I’m craving.  You know, those cravings that just don’t go away until you make the recipe that has been floating around in your head for a few days. These cupcakes are no different. I…

Trail Mix Cookie Bars

I’ve been making a lot more cookie bars lately… And brownies. It turns out that baking cookies with an infant isn’t quite as easy as I once thought. Previously I thought that cookies were a given in the kitchen… How hard is it to bake cookies? You just slap some dough on a sheet pan…

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups (Dairy-Free!)

I have always tried to be very sensitive to the food allergies and special diets of my friends and family. I am happy to experiment with new foods and I enjoy making food that everyone can enjoy. I don’t want anyone to feel like they can’t enjoy every part of a meal at my house, so…

Dark Chocolate Nutella Puppy Chow

Whatever you do, DO NOT make this recipe. I’m serious. I can say nothing about nutritional benefits… There are none. But, you probably won’t be able to leave it alone. You’ll be licking spoons and sneaking a snack or two (or three) while you are making it. You might even find yourself coming up with…

Friday nights aren’t what they used to be at my house.  For a while, Friday night was date night, and my hubby and I would go out for cocktails and dinner on Friday nights.  But, as you might imagine, we don’t go out nearly as much as we used to these days. Ok, we don’t…

Kahlua Spiked Mexican Chocolate Cupcakes

My Kitchen Addiction turns 4 years old today… Where has the time gone? If you had asked me where I thought this blog would be in four years when I started writing and sharing recipes, I probably would have shrugged and smiled…  I had no idea. I started My Kitchen Addiction with no real big plans,…

Cranberry Salsa

I’m not going to be making Thanksgiving dinner this year. I thought about attempting it, but my mother offered to cook and I decided to take her up on it. I’m not so sure that everything would have gotten done in between snuggle time with the baby.  She likes to snuggle.  She also likes to scream…

Caramel Stuffed Mexican Chocolate Cookies

A funny thing happens when I have conversations with other cooks and bakers (I will avoid the use of the word “foodie” even though I don’t really have much of a problem with it myself.)… No matter where the conversation starts (vacation plans, new jobs, etc.), we usually end up talking about food. More specifically,…

Friday Favorites – Episode 138

Reading food blogs has become dangerous for me lately… I seem to be constantly hungry, and looking at lots of incredible photos of even more incredibly delicious food doesn’t help things at all! Just writing this blog post has my tummy grumbling! So, I’m going to keep things brief and get right to the Friday…
