Strawberry Hazelnut Cream Croissants

Strawberry Hazelnut Cream Croissants | by The Crumby Cupcake via My Cooking Spot

Heaven help me, but I have a borderline crazy adoration for croissants. Those light, fluffy, uber-buttery pillows of perfection are great spread with jam for breakfast, or topped with meat and cheese for a delightful lunch.

Yeah, I’m a carbaholic through and through. But, sometimes, I like to get fancy with my French delicacies, and when that happens, you can expect things like these Strawberry Hazelnut Cream Croissants to come flying out of my kitchen. And the best part (aside from the taste)? You only need four ingredients to make these!! [Read more…]

Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a love/hate relationship with peanut butter.

It’s also heavy on fat content (even though it’s healthy fat!), which is where the hate comes in, because there are days I could sit down with a spoon and a jar and go to town with no hesitation.

I digress. For that reason, aside from my post-gym snack or a lazy weekday lunch, I usually save it for desserts like these Ultimate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies!
