You know the old commercial, "Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't"? Well I'm a huge fan of those two candy bars, but these days we have to make just about everything from scratch to ensure quality ingredients. Patti at Comfy Cuisine came up with a genial version of her own, the chocolate coconut joy bars. Amazing. Her version adds a bit of cake to the bottom. You have to go look at it if you didn't see it last week when she posted it.
Along the same lines of chocolate and coconut goodness, Lisa at Flour Me With Love, shared her version of Nanaimo bars, the dessert originating from the 1950s in the Nanaimo region in British Columbia, Canada. This recipe doesn't even need to be baked so it's wonderful for those hot summer days. Don't miss her delicious Apple Fritter Bread which she shared a couple of weeks ago either.
Kirsten at Comfortably Domestic shared two very delicious recipes last week. One was her own version of this month's Bon Apetit cherry hand pies recipe. The other resipe for some lovely lemon ginger sugar cookies was a tried and true recipe she started making as a newlywed for her husband's foreign diplomat bosses.
This next choice was so good, that Kirsten's husband Michael, decided to write the post for her. He thinks that most gourmet cupcakes "focus on a fancy top without too much love given to the cake itself," and I agree too. So what was this outstanding cupcake? A Tres Leches cupcake. I hope you've had the cake version, and I can just imagine how fabulous a bite sized version all to ones self would be. It's going to be a must make for all of us tres leches aficionados, so hop over to Kirsten's blog, The Sweet Swiper.
I love apple desserts so I want to feature Mimi's Apple Nut Cake at Frugal Mom Digest. These types of cakes are so moist and so flavorful.
Trish of Sweetology created these lovely Peach Hat Pies. Aren't they beautiful, and such a great idea? They don't take much effort, but will make your family and guests feel extra special.
Peaches mean summer to me and I remember eating the best peaches ever with my grandmother. This Fresh Peach Ice Cream includes sour cream for extra creamyness. Peaches have been particularly good this season, so don't miss out on making this recipe from Roz at La Bella Vita.
