Dessert from the Amateur Chef

Earlier today I created a delicious dish that was the main part of my dinner menu. I made it up as I went along combining rainbow chard with beef brats. Baked sweet potato fries was added to the menu. I didn’t make the corn muffins.

My sweet tooth started kicking up so I decided to make dessert. A simple dessert came to mind. It was one that I’ve only baked once. There was no recipe in my stash so to the internet I went and found an easy one. I had everything in the house so I got busy and the Madeleine’s were in the oven in less than fifteen minutes. So in about twenty-nine minutes I had great tasting little cakes. This is a great dessert if you have company coming.



Have you great cooks made Madeleine’s before?

If you haven’t you might want to try them.

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream



That was a saying we had about ice cream when I was a child. That was what I felt about ice cream then as well as now. I can eat ice cream every day of the week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I like to try different flavors. I like to smear it over cookies, brownies, cakes and pies. Sometimes I add nuts, chocolate chips and any other fun things I can think of.

When I was a child there weren’t as many flavors as there are today. These days you can think up a flavor and an ice cream store somewhere probably has it.
Although I love ice cream with an everlasting love, these days I have to limit how much I indulge myself. It is very hard to deny myself but my pants and how they fit are the better for it.
My heart will always scream for Ice Cream all the days of my life.

Do you have a favorite thing that is your weakness? How do you maintain control?
