Lemon Angel Food Cupcakes

Every Mother’s Day, I make my mom a citrus-themed dessert. She loves lemon desserts, so I’ve made Earl Grey Lemon Squares and a Lemon Tart with Raspberry Shortbread Crust in the past. This year, I decided to make cupcakes! I adapted a recipe from Martha Stewart into a cupcake recipe to make these Lemon Angel Food Cupcakes. Ingredients: Cupcakes: 1 cup sifted cake flour 1 1/2 cups sugar 12 large egg whites 2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon cream of tartar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt Lemon Whipped Cream Frosting: 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice 1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoon cake flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, chilled 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest

Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers, they always hit the spot! So when Jimmy Dean contacted me about their new Fully Cooked Sausage Crumbles, I knew I wanted to use the crumbles in stuffed mushrooms. I adapted this recipe from one I found on the Jimmy Dean website. It comes together very quickly, in about 30 minutes. It’s simple enough to whip up when you need an appetizer in no time! Ingredients: 12 oz medium sized mushrooms, stems removed 1 package Jimmy Dean® Sausage Crumbles, Original 1 garlic clove, minced 2 eggs ¾ cup dry Italian bread crumbs, divided ½ cup (2 ounces) grated Parmesan cheese, divided ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon olive oil #spon: I’m required to disclose a relationship between our site and Jimmy Dean.

Brownie Petit Fours

Here’s another delicious dessert I made for New Years Eve. (You can read about my New Years Eve party and get a recipe for Honey Citrus Champange Cupcakes here) The original BHG recipe included bourbon, but I already had Bourbon Truffles on the menu so I decided to go without it in this recipe. I was a little wary of making these little guys, petit fours seem pretty difficult to make. But I was surprised with how simple it was to make these! Ingredients: BROWNIES 1/2 cup butter 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped 1/4 cup milk 2 tablespoons  coffee grounds (I measured them out from a k cup) 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon baking soda MILK CHOCOLATE FROSTING & SEMISWEET CHOCOLATE GLAZE 1 cup whipping cream 11.25 ounce milk chocolate pieces 16 ounce package semisweet chocolate pieces
