Yummy Gift Baskets
Posted on 03.01.12 by itscrazydelicious @

Who would not love to get that fabulous gourmet gift basket delivered to oyou.  It makes for a great gift to give someone year round and for no occation at all even.  They are great for the holidays too like Mother’s Day and Easter.  Great gifts, like a cheesecake, to give to someone that has it all.  And they  have such yummy treats and selections.  My husband likes the cheese and wine baskets but I prefer the chocolate and cheesecake ones.  

Although last year I did get a fruit one that was actually quite delicious. I guess it all depends on the person that you are sending it to.  It is a nice time of year too…no one would be especting anything like this.  Personally, I think that the best gifts to get and give are the ones that you don’t expect and are for no reason at all other than the fact that you care. And a nice cheesecake does say that you care 🙂

Who does not love cheesecake! And this is the time of the year that I am always making it.  From Thanksgiving to Easter is when I make all my cheesecake desserts.  My personal favorite is chocolate chip cheesecake.  And this year I make little chocolate cheesecake bite squares so that I could bring them in for my co-workers.  They just loved them!  And it was the perfect size so that you could enjoy it but you don’t feel guilty for eating it.
But there are many people out there like my sister, that love to eat it but do not really care to make their own. But with all the great sites out there you can get a fresh cheesecake delivered right to your door for any occation you like.  I have order cheesecake online before and they taste fabulous.

Easy Dessert
Posted on 07.19.09 by itscrazydelicious @

I love this time of year…I just had the best dessert and it is so easy and healthy to make! Just a bunch of blueberries and put it on the bottom of a very tall dessert glass and then a layer of whipped cream and then a lay or strawberries followed by whipped cream and sprinkled with either yellow sprinkles or lemon peel shavings…a perfectly healthy and patriotic dessert!

Cheerios Necklace
Posted on 02.24.09 by itscrazydelicious @

I know it sounds so simple but sometimes it is the simple things you never actually think of! My daughter and I made a Cherrios necklace the other day. Her friend had one of those candy necklaces and this is just so much more healthier than the candy ones and she loves Cheerios anyway. We got the frosted Cheerios and just strung them together to make her a necklace that she snacked on. It was a lot of fun and it was something that she could do by herself so she liked that too!

Boxed Sugar Cookies
Posted on 10.19.08 by itscrazydelicious @

Do not ever buy boxed sugar cookie mixes….I have yet to find one that I like ever. I just made the most absolutely worst sugar cookies I have ever had in my life. You take a bit and they like crumble…it is just really gross. And I was going to this week get the ones that are the refrigerated kind but they didn’t have the cookie roll and the ones they had were the break apart kind and they were like $4 – forget that!

Who does not love chocolate and who does not love getting chocolate. Gertrude Hawk Chocolates has gourmet chocolates that are absolutely delicious. They also have sugar free candy, fresh fudge, chocolate covered cherries and caramel dipped apples to just name a few of what they offer. And they use only the freshest ingredients in all of their recipes that have been tested by Gertrude herself. They have pre made gift baskets that are lovely for any and all occasions because chocolate is a cure all for all in my opinion.

Bake Sale
Posted on 06.12.08 by itscrazydelicious @

Have you ever thought of having that bake sale? I know that my daughters school has them all the time for fund raisers but I don’t think they do all that well. I remember when I was in school that they really didn’t sell all that great because you would have not the best of items to sell. No one wants to buy yucky over priced cookies!
Here is a great site I found with a lot of info on bake sales. – I feel the more tips you can get on a successful bake sale…the better off you will be!

6oz can of frozen orange juice
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Making Cookies
Posted on 04.20.08 by itscrazydelicious @

I just love to make sookie and making cookies from scratch are just so incredibly good! Just be sure that you cream the sugar and the shortening as well – it is the most important part of getting that great tasting cookies. And after you are done and they have baked leave them on the baking sheet just a little longer because they are actually still cooking.

4 ounces heavy whipping cream
6 ounces cashews, dry roasted, salted
16 ounces dark semisweet chocolate

Not the one? See other Monster Chocolate Cashew Turtles Recipes
< 60 mins Candy Low Sodium Candy Heat the first heavy cream in a small sauce pan. Bring to a simmer and remove from heat. Place chocolate chips in a stainless steel bowl. Pour hot cream over chocolate and stir with a rubber spatula. Place paper muffin cups into a muffin pan. Pour ganache into paper cups ¼ inch thick. Top with toasted cashews and cool in freezer. For the caramel:. Heat the second cream in a small pan up to the boil. Shut off heat and keep warm. In a large sauce pan, combine sugar water and lemon juice and cook to a medium caramel color. Be extremely careful -- this will be 'very hot'. Remove from heat and carefully add the hot heavy cream. Stir until a smooth caramel. Caution, use a cooking vessel much larger than necessary because the hot caramel will boil up and could splatter. Allow to cool to a honey like thickness. Spoon the caramel on top of the cashews.

Posted on 10.19.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I found this on the internet and I had to try it…I messed up the first time but I got it right the second time and the kids love this!! Great Recipes online have so many super recipes and they are just so easy to make some of them. I am all for a challange sometimes but the simple recipes are obviously easier and sometimes cost less. Not to mention that they are really just as good as the fancy dishes or desserts. Try this one is good!

1 bag chocolate chips
a small balloon for each bowl sprinkles
Tin foil

2 scoops of chocolate ice cream for each milkshake
chocolate syrup
1 cup of milk
oreo cookie *optional

Needed: a blender, a freezer, a microwave

Edible Chocolate Bowls
1. Fill up a tall bowl with a good amout of the chocolate chips.
2. Microwave the chips for 2-3 minutes on MED, or until fully melted. Let cool at room temperature until it is luke warm to the touch.
3. Blow up 2 small balloons, until they are the size that you want to bowl to be, we suggest 3-4 inches across, and about 3 inches tall.
4. Get out a layer of tin foil, lay on a table.
5. Slowly but thouroughly dip the balloons into the luke warm chips, and make sure there is a thick layer of chocolate around the lower half of the inflated balloon, and if needed,use a butter knife to layer it evenly.
6. Lay the ballons chocolate side down on the tin foil. place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes, until the bowl has frozen over the first level. Then remove and let sit
7. Apply yet another layer of chocolate, this time shaping your bowl to be completely even around the side!
8. Re freeze this layer. You may need up to 3 or 4 layers. This can be judged as you like, as thick as you would like the bowl to be.
9. While the last layer is hardening, apply splinkles around the entire bowl.
10. This will complete your bowl. Just set in the freezer to let it completely harden while you prepare to make your chocolate milkshake.

Choco-Power Milkshake
1. Pour 2 scoops ice cream, a cup of milk, oreo bits, chocolate syrup, and any other ingredients you desire.
2. Blend on high until milkshake density.
3. Remove and pour into the bowl when ready to serve, until then, keep milkshake in fridge.
4 Serve on a platter, possibly with come more chocolate syrup splattered on the plate. This shouls serve 4-6 people, depending on the size of the bowl.
CAUTION: very rich, very sweet, do not overeat!

Royal Icing
Posted on 10.19.07 by itscrazydelicious @

Here is a great halloween recipe called Royal Icing that I found at This one seems to be very easy to make and just dsounds delicious. But personally, anything with the word icing in it just sounds so sweet and yummy to me. This is the hard icing that can clue gingerbread houses together or create that hard icing looking on cookies or cakes.

Makes enough to ice 5-6 dozen sugar cookies.

16 oz powdered sugar (icing sugar)
3 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar

Beat until peaks firmly hold their shape, and the more you beat it, the firmer it gets. This hardens when exposed to air, but dissolves in water, so keep a moist towel over the bowl while working with it. Use a tight-fitting plastic container to store in the refrigerator for a couple weeks, but the egg whites begin to separate from the sugar any longer than that.

Bat Cookies
Posted on 10.05.07 by itscrazydelicious @

Here is a great recipe that I found at Mountain Breeze. They are Bat Cookies and they just look so good. I had a request to make bat cookies and I didn’t even know that they existed but apparently they do. So, if you are also on the lookout for bat cookies then here is the perfect recipe for you. And they look rather easy to make and also quite delicious…but I think that all cookies are pretty delicious actually 🙂

4 oz Milk chocolate candy melts

Use a serrated knife to carefully cut 18 of the cookies into quarters.
Save remaining cookies for another use.
For each bat, place 2 cookie quarters 1/4″ apart on waxed paper.
Repeat with remaining quarters.
Melt candy melts.
Drop about 1/2 teaspoon of melted candy at center of each bat, connecting cookies.
Use a toothpick to smooth melted candy into a uniform circle.

Pumpkin Donuts
Posted on 09.27.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I just really felt like something pumpkinny yesterday. And I had thought…I wonder if there was a recipe out there for pumpkin donuts…wouldn’t that just taste so incredible? At least I thought so. And I actually did indeed find a recipe that was pumpkin donuts. I am so excited! So, I will be making that either tomorow or this weekend sometime. Here is what I found from Epicurious.

Spiced sugar
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 large egg
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk
1 cup canned pure pumpkin
Canola oil (for deep-frying)

Powdered Sugar Glaze
2 cups powdered sugar
Whipping cream

preparationFor spiced sugar:
Whisk all ingredients in medium bowl to blend.
For doughnuts:
Whisk first 8 ingredients in medium bowl to blend. Using electric mixer, beat sugar and butter in large bowl until blended (mixture will be grainy). Beat in egg, then yolks and vanilla. Gradually beat in buttermilk; beat in pumpkin in 4 additions. Using rubber spatula, fold in dry ingredients in 4 additions, blending gently after each addition. Cover with plastic; chill 3 hours.

Sprinkle 2 rimmed baking sheets lightly with flour. Press out 1/3 of dough on floured surface to 1/2- to 2/3-inch thickness. Using 2 1/2-inch-diameter round cutter, cut out dough rounds. Arrange on sheets. Repeat with remaining dough in 2 more batches. Gather dough scraps. Press out dough and cut out more dough rounds until all dough is used.

Using 1-inch-diameter round cutter, cut out center of each dough round to make doughnuts and doughnut holes.

Line 2 baking sheets with several layers of paper towels. Pour oil into large deep skillet to depth of 1 1/2 inches. Attach deep-fry thermometer and heat oil to 365°F to 370°F. Fry doughnut holes in 2 batches until golden brown, turning occasionally, about 2 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towels to drain. Fry doughnuts, 3 or 4 at a time, until golden brown, adjusting heat to maintain temperature, about 1 minute per side. Using slotted spoon, transfer doughnuts to paper towels to drain. Cool completely.

For powdered sugar glaze:
Whisk powdered sugar and 4 tablespoons whipping cream to blend. Whisk in additional cream, 1 teaspoon at a time, to form medium thick glaze. Can be made up to 3 hours ahead. Add doughnut holes to bowl of spiced sugar and toss to coat. Spread doughnuts on 1 side with Powdered Sugar Glaze. Arrange doughnuts, glazed side up, on racks. Let stand until glaze sets, at least 30 minutes.

Makes about 24 doughnuts and 24 doughnut holes.

Candy Apples
Posted on 09.18.07 by itscrazydelicious @

Personally, I like my candy apples to be with MacEntoch Apples but Red Delicious is also very good too. I like caramel apples but the candy apples are just very seasonable right now. Here is a great recipe that I have used and I goofed it up the first time but hte second time I did it it came out really great. If yoiu goof up just try again…just like with anything! I got this from Home Cooking

12 red delicious apples
12 wooden ice-cream sticks
4-1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon red food coloring
1-1/2 cups water
1 cup chopped peanuts

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpats. Set aside. Wash and dry the apples. Insert a stick through the stem of each, leaving about 2 inches of the stick for gripping. Place the chopped peanuts in a deep bowl large enough to roll apples in.

Place the sugar, corn syrup, food coloring, and water in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Bring slowly to a boil while stirring constantly and cook until the ingredients are dissolved.

Insert a candy thermometer into the liquid and continuing cooking, without stirring, until the temperature reaches 290 degrees F. This should take about 20 minutes.

Remove the syrup from the heat and dip the apples, one by one, coating each evenly. Work quickly so the sauce doesn’t harden. As you finish dipping an apple, roll it in the peanuts to coat evenly. Place each apple standing on the prepared cookie sheet. Let the apples cool for at least 1 hour before servinig.
