Salted Brown Butter Rice Krispies Treats

Someone reminded me of this recipe and it was perfect for a small get together we hosted. I actually made it twice because the first time my marshmallows were too old. It really did matter because I made the recipe the same way and the first time it became hard as a rock and was inedible. The second time it was perfect. So, make sure your marshmallows are still soft and fluffy (even though you’re melting them, the texture beforehand matters).

Zucchini Parmesan Crisps (Grilled)

I know, here I go again sharing a grilled recipe during winter. But, there are a few things to point out. First, it was originally an oven recipe and you could still make them that way.

Crème Brûlée French Toast

We didn’t have good luck with parent days this year. For Father’s Day weekend, K was getting over a bad cold. For Mother’s Day weekend, I had an awful stomach bug that made me nauseated and weak for a long weekend.

I could only eat one slice because it is rich and I was still barely eating food, but it was delicious.

Mixed Bag Mondays (Part 11): Smitten Kitchen Peach and Chocolate

Are you shocked that I voluntarily made a peach dessert? I am. We hosted a summer get-together with K’s side of our friend family. I decided to make this peach dessert because it seemed both easy, simple in ingredients (what you always want for a fruit dessert so that the main ingredient shines through), and something that was better made ahead. It was also easy to serve for a crowd since I could make pieces smaller for people to eat as much or as little as desired.
