Pecan Powder Puff

Well, actually I did walnut powder puff cookies. It's a little late. Got caught up watching a movie with hubbie and I just popped them in the oven, hence the picture of raw cookies! Can't wait to try them! This is definitely a midnight snack at midnight! Thanks Tia for your pick! You always do such awesome, creative stuff! Check her out on buttercream barbie!

Honey Nut Brownie

Between yesterday and today I've been reading everyone's posts and I didn't get excited about making this brownie. I took the time to pick out what I thought would be a good tasting honey. I wanted something different and I saw white truffle honey. I shouldve read the side of the jar and found out that it was for savory foods and not desserts. Back to the store I went and picked out a wild flower honey. I must say, I liked this dessert more than I thought I would. I think it's important to use a bittersweet chocolate with at least a 70% percent cocoa to avoid any undesired sweetness. Although these were very sweet, I didn't mind because they were "honey sweet", if that makes any sense! These came together quite well and took about 55 minutes in the oven. I'll take some to work tomorrow to get a few more comments.

Thanks to Suzy of Suzy Homemaker for picking out this recipe. It was nice to branch out and try something with a twist from the norm!

Citrus Currant Sunshine Muffins

Well, it's nice to do a little bit of baking. I've fallen behind and literally have had ingredients on my counter for the past few recipes for weeks now! I made the corny corn muffins but they got eaten up before I could take a picture!!!

This weeks selection comes from Lauryn of Bella Baker. Such perfect timingfor a lovely spring muffin. I was asked to be a part of a women's health conference and bring some healthy muffins. These will be perfect along with a few others we've done. Mini muffins are perfect for this treat! I also added a lemon icing on them as well.
