I’m so ready for spring. I am trying to will the warmer weather to be here ASAP by making a bunch of spring-themed posts. Sara Lee must have read my mind because they contacted me about using their yummy pound cake in a recipe — what better way to show off Sara Lee Pound Cake than with a trifle? This berry trifle uses fresh berries, pound cake, and fresh whipped cream with lemon curd, making a yummy and bright spring dessert. I made them in mini trifle bowls but you can adapt this recipe to go in a traditional trifle bowl. Ingredients (makes 4 mini trifles): 2 cups heavy whipping cream 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon sugar 1 jar ( roughly 11 oz) lemon curd 1 Sara Lee pound cake, defrosted strawberry jam 1 pint blueberries 1 pint raspberries 2 strawberries, halved #spon: I’m required to disclose a relationship between our site and Sara Lee. This could include the Sara Lee providing us w/content, product, access or other forms of payment.
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
I’m a bit late posting this cookie recipe after Christmas and all but who really gets upset about a cookie recipe? For as long as I can remember, Peanut Butter Cookies have been a part of my Christmas celebrations. They are just the best. And luckily, they are really easy to make too! This recipe is from Food Network and can be made in under 30 minutes, you don’t even have to refrigerate the dough before baking! Ingredients: 1 cup sugar 1 stick butter, at room temperature 1 egg 1 cup smooth peanut butter 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 1/2 cups flour 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
