Traveling with White Chocolate Truffles

I'm traveling today and I'm bringing these White Chocolate Truffles with me! Come along! We're going to visit with Mindie at  Bacon Time with The Hungry Hypo, where you can get the recipe for these easy to make truffles. There are only 3 main ingredients and they would be a wonderful addition to an Easter Basket or a great Mother's Day gift!

Every month I will be contributing a recipe to Bacon Time with The Hungry Hypo.
I will be focusing on dessert and holiday recipes,
and I hope you will stop by.
Thanks for reading and follow the above link for the recipe!

Mr. McGregor's Marshmallow Carrots

These Marshmallow Carrots are not the ones that Peter Rabbit was munching on in Mr. McGregor's garden, but I think you will like them. You start with homemade marshmallow, cut out some carrots with a cookie cutter, add some orange sanding sugar, add some licorice greens, and you have a marshmallow carrot similar to a peep! Things would have been fun if these had been growing in Mr. McGregor's garden!

Chocolate Mint Bread Pudding

Spring is in the air and so is mint. Of course chocolate is always in season in my kitchen, so I put the two together to make this decadent Chocolate Mint Bread Pudding. The mint comes from Oreo Mint Fudge Cookies, my newest, yummy addiction. Add semi sweet chocolate chunks, and you have a rich, tasty bread pudding that you can't get enough of.

Linzer Buttercream Spring Cookies

I am really ready for spring! So, in the hopes of nudging things along, hoping that it might arrive earlier, rather than later, I made some Linzer Buttercream Cookies in spring colors! I used the daisy cutout for the center because that was the only cutout that was "spring like". Then wouldn't you know that I was at HomeGoods yesterday, and I saw a Linzer cutout set made just for spring! Oh well! I hope these cookies make you smile!

Chicken Sausage and Mushroom Flatbread Appetizer

This month for the Improv Cooking Challenge I made a Chicken Sausage and Mushroom Flatbread Appetizer. Our necessary ingredients were sausage and mushrooms. I added scallions and red, yellow and orange sweet peppers as a topping and a homemade sausage gravy as the base. It has the appearance of a fancy pants appetizer with a "just plain folks" taste you are going to love.
