Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip & Hazelnut Cookies

The aroma of freshly brewed coffee, rich buttery cookies lingered in the kitchen today gradually making its' way to the dining and living area making it harder to resist. I could feel my mouth watering up, drools making its' way down and while I swallowed and lick my lips, focusing on drafting this post; never once thought that it could be so hard. Okay, so I gave in to my weakness, grab 2 cookies, munching, devouring and enjoying every single bite, while still trying hard to stay focus to type every single word, conjuring up a sentence in my head. Boy! This PEANUT BUTTER-CHOCOLATE CHIP N' HAZELNUT COOKIE is irresistible. Crunchy on the edges, chunky, slightly chewy in the middle with a combination of semi-sweet chocolate chips, peanut butter-chocolate morsels, and chopped hazelnuts in a cookie. Perfect breakfast, tea-time or anytime of a day snack or maybe an excuse for a mid-week snack. So maybe 2 cookies isn't enough?

Strawberry Vodka Coulis + Creamy Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta

As I am kicking my heels off, feeling really exhausted after a long day; the thought of just plopping myself down on the couch, sipping a glass of Strawberry Daiquiri, made with vodka and catching some shut eye sounded very much like heaven. Then all this reading and talks about cocktails over at The Boys' Club since their blog officially launched got me thirsty. Instead, of a drink, I suddenly was left craving for something creamy and satisfying, with minimal cleaning up, fresh, and easy to make. Join me and party this weekend with delicious STRAWBERRY VODKA COULIS topped with more fresh Strawberries over a light creamy VANILLA BEAN PANNA COTTA. A versatile recipe. If you could dream it, you will be able to make it.

Apple, Cranberry & Walnut Pie with Apple Crisps

It's beginning to 'smell' a lot like Christmas [humming the tune in my head] in early September in my kitchen. Ahh! the aroma of cinnamon, vanilla bean, apple, cranberry and walnut lingered throughout the day as I prepared my APPLE, CRANBERRY & WALNUT PIE with homemade APPLE CRISPS. Don't you just love the classics? Rich classic flavours with a twist. Not only these pies are made to individual portions shaping like individual gifts, they are served freshly baked out of the oven; each topped with good ole' fashion vanilla ice-cream, caramel syrup and apple crisps.

Devil's Food Bourbon Cupcakes + Hazelnut Cream

Maltezers, Pink Sprinkles and luscious Hazelnut Cream is my kind of heaven. Decadent, sinful, slightly girly and not overly macho that could still tempt any grown man to take a bite and your girlfriends going mMMmm! Go on, do take a bite of my DEVIL'S FOOD BOURBON CUPCAKES with HAZELNUT CREAM. Sounded very much like "Yeah! I had you eating out of my hand.. muahahaha". Fret not, these cupcakes are "angels" ahem.. under disguise. Or maybe I had that intention. Whatever the intention maybe, it's pure indulgence. Psssst..Let me let you in a tiny secret. There is "bourbon whiskey" added somewhere. Aren't these the little devil?
