How mouth-watering does this little treat look?

Chocolate Chip Pie A la Mode Cupcake. Yes, PLEASE!

The cake with a perfectly proportional scoop of ice cream on top looks amazing itself. Cut to the inside of this cake and I think I might just die.

Side note: I just love this blogs name! Hoosier Homemade, too cute.

Dear Neglected Blog…

23 Feb

So here we are, 34 weeks and 3 days pregnant. What exactly does this mean?

Well, for me, it means my body thinks it should feel 3 months pregnant again. AKA the return of my arch enemy — morning sickness. Oh yes, let’s not forget I had morning sickness well past the first trimester. In fact, it lasted about half way through the second and (I believe) only stopped because of acupuncture treatments.

My doctor says this can be a normal thing with baby boys. Just my luck! However, it’s unlucky for my neglected blog. The morning sickness keeps me from perusing foodgawker and even having daily cravings.

Wonderful cravings like this:

Frozen Hot Chocolate. Yum-O!

This of course is a remake of Serendipity 3’s famous drink/dessert.

This is by far one of my favorite desserts ever! How could you say no to this?!

Daily Cravings: Holy Layer Cake

Let’s talk layers. Fourteen layers to be exact.

I found this delectable delight over at Bakerella‘s sight and haven’t been able to stop staring at its beauty. Layer upon layer, this cake looks so moist with lip-smacking chocolatey goodness in between. You know, just a little something special you could whip up for your valentine.

Daily Cravings: Chocolate Cake

8 Feb

Last week was quite a stressful week, so please forgive me for the lack of posting. You see, we woke up last Sunday to an overflowing toilet which flooded a room full of our stuff! As we are currently in a rental house, our landlord decided he didn’t want to pay the weekend fees for the plumber.

Long story short, by Monday night the toilet (which we had learned at this point wasn’t plumbing issues in the house but sewage from the city pipes) was still flooding one of our rooms. It was finally fixed that night by 11 p.m. This was just the start of the week and it didn’t get any smoother. So, here we are one week later and life has FINALLY settled back to normal.

Lets just say that the countdown to the move has become a more important part to each day leading up to February 25. So close!!

Now for the cake. What stressed out pregnant lady doesn’t want cake? Wait, what woman in general doesn’t want cake. And the fact that it’s chocolate cake just makes it that much better.

I would love nothing more than for someone to deliver this cake to me. Here’s to hoping this week continues to be better than the last.

Daily Cravings: Mini Chicken Taquitos

Chicken, Bacon and Cream Cheese. Three of my favorite ingredients. Who are we kidding, three of everyone’s ingredients. Put them all together and you’ve got this taste-bud tingling recipe Chicken, Bacon & Cream Cheese Mini Taquitos.

I’m already thinking up a million reasons to make and serve these. If you’re planning a Super Bowl Party you should certainly add these to your menu. Or just make them for lunch, dinner, whatever excuse you can find.

Check out Taste and Tell’s other ideas for Super Bowl additions!

One of my all time favorite meals is the “Kitchen Sink Nachos” from Jim ‘N Nicks. Unfortunately, we don’t have one in our new hometown.

When I spotted these potato nachos I knew they’d be a good possible replacement, and how wonderful will these be to serve at a Super Bowl party? I can’t wait to make these!

Don’t these pancakes just look delicious? Of course they do!

Unfortunately, I got a call today from the doctor saying I failed my Glucose Screening from Monday. This means tomorrow at 7 a.m. I’m headed to the hospital to do a three hour test full of blood-work and boredom. If I don’t pass, all of these sweet treats will just be dreams for the next ten weeks. Let’s hope for the best.

Daily Cravings: Macaroni and Cheese

I’ve always loved mac-n-cheese. Always. I mean honestly, who doesn’t? You’re just not American if you don’t, or at least not Southern. However, my love for macaroni and cheese has quadrupled since I’ve been pregnant. In fact, during the first few months when morning sickness ruled my life it was all I could eat.

Easy-Mac, homemade mac, whichever way you choose to make this cheesy goodness, you really can’t do it wrong.

Have you ever had these little sammies at a wedding show or some sort of reception? If not, you’re missing out!

These sandwiches are smothered in a butter-mustard-poppyseed mixture which makes a simple ham and swiss slider out of this world.
