Today I have a collection of recipes that I've made over the past couple years that never got blogged and have been taking up valuable real estate on my computer. It's about time I shared them with you, so here they are. For the recipes, just click the links under the coordinating picture. Enjoy!
1. Zucchini Cake- This recipe comes from Debbie at Mocha Me. She made a zucchini coconut layer cake but peeled the zucchini cake for an all-white interior. I omitted the coconut, made it into a Bundt and topped it with a thick glaze. It was a really moist cake.
2. Honey Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes- This recipe is from Coleen at Coleen's Recipes. I topped mine with a cooked blueberry topping for a hearty breakfast.
3. Giant M&M Cookie- I've made this recipe several times. It comes from Mel's Kitchen Cafe and her version calls for chocolate chips. I've made it with chocolate chips before but this time I opted for colorful M&M's for a kids birthday party. It is so easy to make and yields a crispy chewy cookie great for sharing.
4. Sugar Cookie Bars- I saw these all over the Internet a couple years ago but resisted them until last Fall when I made them for a dessert bar. I got this recipe from The Repressed Pastry Chef and it feeds a ton of people.If you like soft sugar cookies, these are for you.
5. Cranberry Pecan White Chocolate Rice Treats- This is a great recipe from Better Homes & Gardens. You start with your basic rice krispie treats and dress them up with pecans, white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. I added a few extra on top for more color.
6. Mocha Crinkles- This is another recipe from BHG that I made a while back. These cookies were so soft and fluffy, with the unexpected ingredient of yogurt in them. They are relatively low fat but by the taste, you'd never guess it. They have great mocha flavor then are rolled in cinnamon sugar. yum!
7. Spritz Cookies- This one is from my friend Michelle of One Ordinary Day. She sprinkled colored sugar on her while I chose to plop an M&M in the middle before baking for more of a flower looking cookie. I then filled them with a little melted chocolate. This is a holiday classic made fun.
8. Gateau Breton- This is a recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum that I made with my friends Ingrid and Michelle last Spring that just never got blogged. It is a rich nutty, buttery dessert. It's a cross between a cake and a shortbread.
9. Lime-Pepper Tilapia- As soon as I saw this recipe from Leslie at La Cocina de Leslie, I had to make it. I love tilapia and this one had a crunchy coating then spiced with lots of lime zest and pepper.
10. Glazed Meatloaf- I've been making this recipe from Martha's Mom (Mrs. Kostyra) for years. I pretty much follow the recipe but I like to caramelize the onions before adding them to the meat mixture. I also add beef bouillon granules instead of salt and omit the parsley. It makes a very moist meatloaf topped with a sweet glaze. It makes great sandwiches the next day too.
11. Basic Buttermilk Waffles- I made these so long ago but never blogged them. I got the recipe from my local newspaper but the recipe is from Alton Brown and can be found on Food Network. I served them with fresh berries, syrup and bacon for that sweet and salty combo.
12. Chocolate Coconut Hedgie Cookies- This recipe comes from Technicolor Kitchen. I like that you coat them in powdered sugar and when they bake they spread and crackle. Not only were they pretty but they were loaded with coconut which made for a chocolate-y chewy cookie.
13. Caramel Turtle Rice Krispie Treats- This treat is from Glorious Treats. You take a basic rice krispie treat and top it with melted caramels and chocolate and sprinkled with toasted nuts for a decadent twist on a childhood favorite.
