Caramel Sea Salt Cookie CupsBy BryanAlthough these were a little difficult to make they turned out to be one of our favorite cookie creations, they truly taste amazing!
Turtle Cheesecake Brownie TrifleBy KaylaThis turtle cheesecake brownie trifle is so ridiculously good, I'm thinking about branding it. I kid. But anyone who knows me knows my two favorite desserts are Turtle Cheesecake, and brownies. With this recipe, you don't have to choose! Now guys, I have a problem. My problem is dairy. I just... I love it so much. But I'm lactose intolerant. This dessert is so rich and filled with dairy, so make sure you take it easy. It looks delicious enough to eat a lot of, and you could, but if you're like me with your rebellious lactose intolerance, just don't. The pictured arrangement was plenty for two people. There are some substitutes and alternatives to this recipe, but as long as the flavors are there, and you have the right texture, this should be easy peasy!
Basic Chicken and Veggie SoupBy KaylaSoups are one of my favorite things to make. Not only do I love eating it, but you can really use anything you have in the kitchen and make a soup. Chicken and veggies are a common item in our kitchen, so I love throwing some dry chicken or frozen chicken breast into my stockpot with whatever leftover veggies I have laying around. The options are truly endless. Even if you only have some chicken and some cream - you can make a soup! And then you can use the soup as a base for something more specific, or eat it as is. Add fresh herbs, some rice or pasta, or even leftover sauces! You can also make your own broth if you don't have any at home or don't like using store-bought chicken broth. We won't get into that with this recipe, but read on to find out how to make this simple Chicken and Veggie Soup!
Chocolate Orange MuffinsBy BryanI thought these up one night when I was craving chocolate covered orange slices. Since I did end up going so heavy handed with the chocolate I labeled these muffins as more of a dessert but no matter when you decide to eat them, they will taste pretty great!
Tomato and Basil BruschettaBy KaylaBruschetta is traditionally an antipasti in Italian cuisine, which is a starter. So basically, this will start your meal. It's grilled bread topped with what can be a variety of toppings. For this recipe, we are doing a tomato and basil bruschetta. This is a bit of a copycat for the bruschetta at Streets of New York, which is a chain restaurant we have here. It's likely not traditional, but it sure is tasty! Read on to make some of your own at home.
