Hot Cocoa Mix

Thursday, February 6, 2014


It's a hot cocoa {with marshmallows} kind of snow day. If my boys could have their way, every day would be a hot chocolate kind of day. But today was special because we took part in the age-old ritual of playing in the snow until we couldn't feel our toes and then warming up by wrapping our hands around a mug of steaming hot chocolate.

Maple cinnamon whipped cream was the finishing touch for our decadent pumpkin pie oatmeal pancakes with maple pecans but I can envision many other sweets and hot drinks topped with this fall-spiced whipped cream.

Peaches and Cream Waffles

Wednesday, September 7, 2011


Celebrate peach season with a special breakfast {or dessert}: peaches and cream waffles. Sweet, juicy peaches and homemade whipped cream is a match made in heaven. Enjoy these waffles while you can because you'll have to wait until next summer to have them again.

Whipped Cream Frosting

Made with powdered sugar, this whipped cream frosting seems to be more stable than the whipped cream that I normally make but it is still light and fluffy. Though it is plenty rich, it is lighter and less sweet than buttercream frosting, making it a perfect option for angel food cake and other light summer desserts.

Happy 4th of July! Simply serve the cake of your choice with blueberries, strawberries and homemade whipped cream for an easy and festive red, white and blue dessert. I used an angel food cake because it is light and perfect for the heat of the summer.

This rich, creamy and chocolaty dessert definitely isn't for the weak. A little bit of the buttery cookie crust topped with vanilla-chocolate pudding and whipped cream goes a long way.

Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

Strawberry season is one of my favorite times of the year. We have to wait a bit longer here in the Pacific Northwest but I am so ready, as the arrival of the strawberry marks the beginning of summer in my book. I decided to jump-start summer with these strawberry shortcake cupcakes.

These almond-filled ebleskiver are best described as bite-sized, melt-in-your-mouth bear claws, little puffs of almond that are perfect for breakfast, dessert, and any time in between.

I typically make an assortment of flavors when I make ebleskiver but these Nutella-filled pancakes are so yummy that they deserve their own post. They are also a delicious way to celebrate World Nutella Day.
