Smores = Delicious

My favorite way to make smores:

Last night, I made delicious smores with Love Street Living Foods chocolate coconut spread, bunny marshmallows from Easter, and graham crackers.  Absolutely yummy and gooey and highly recommended.

That is all.

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Things have been super busy, but this week I did manage to make one exciting meal - carrot cake cupcakes!  The recipe was from Alton Brown on the Food Network website, so you can head on over there for the directions.  These were DELICIOUS, and so easy to make.  I did leave out the walnuts, since I didn't have any, and I used reduced fat cream cheese (neufchatel), which didn't seem to have an adverse effect on the deliciousness of the frosting.

I even managed to pipe on these cute little carrots!  Sorry the picture is so blurry, but I forgot to take one until I was at work and only had my phone with me.

Matzo Ball Soup

Just in time for Passover :)

Matzo Ball Soup - adapted from Manischewitz

1 tablespoon canola oil
1 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 cup matzo meal
salt & pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chicken stock

For soup: 4 cups chicken stock

Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl and chill for 15 minutes.  Carefully form into balls and drop balls into boiling, salted water.  Cook at a simmer in covered pot for 30 minutes.  Remove matzo balls from water and place into warmed chicken stock.  Season with pepper if desired.
