I’ve been meaning to share these Cinnamon Rolls for a long time now. I can’t wait any longer!!!
Eat like a caveman!!
A dear friend of mine and her kiddos came over to hang out recently. They implemented the Paleo Diet with their family a while back and, when I knew they were staying for lunch, I thought I’d try my hand at some Paleo recipes!
The more I use puff pastry dough the more I like it.
When I started searching through sweet recipes for “J is for Jam”…
I found myself craving… CHOCOLATE!!!
This is my final honey recipe and it’s DESSERT!
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. ~Proverbs 16:24
I hope you will make this SWEET dessert and serve it up with some SWEET words for your loved ones! Too often we use our words to tear each other down instead of building each other up. We focus on that which is lacking in one another instead of praising each other for our strengths.
We all know how much words can affect us… at least they affect me… they can make or break my day (or my week) and can inspire or discourage alike. So, whether you write a note or bring a verbal word of encouragement along with this crumble, speak gracious words that will be sweet to the souls of those who receive them… sweet like “honeycomb” as Proverbs says. 🙂
This recipe is especially close to my heart…
I grew up visiting the small town of Hendricks in farm-country Minnesota. One of my fondest memories was having my Grandma Caroline’s homemade rhubarb jam and pie… made with rhubarb straight from her garden no less!
While I didn’t harvest my rhubarb from my backyard garden (I’m expecting my green thumb to arrive any day now…), I did pick up some from the grocery store along with some strawberries for this DELICIOUS dessert!
This dessert has a fancy name (“Affogato”) but it’s the SIMPLEST dessert!
“Affogato” comes from an Italian word than means “drown” (affogare). It is a dessert that traditionally includes vanilla ice cream, an espresso shot, and sometimes coffee liquor.
I decided to make my own version for a quick and easy, yet elegant dessert. You can keep it as simple as just ice cream with coffee poured over top or you can make it fancier for guests. To make it more elegant you can add chopped nuts, shave some chocolate over the top, and/ or serve it in martini glasses for flare. You could even sugar the rims with red or green (for Christmas), orange (for Halloween), or a favorite color for a birthday.
When I drink coffee I usually like it black.
Adding in milk and sugar is delicious, but I really like the flavor of the coffee itself without any extras. When I add them in I can’t taste the coffee itself. However, there does come the occasional afternoon when I’m craving something sweet and I need some caffeine to recharge my day. This is one of those HAVE to do laundry, mop the floor, do the dishes afternoons and I need a little kick (coffee + sugar) to get me going.
