Bakers delight! Today is National Apple Pie Day which happens to be my dad’s favorite pie! I remember my mom making apple pie after a trip to the apple orchards in upstate New York.

May 11th is Eat What You Want Day

May 11, 2015

Comments Off on May 11th is Eat What You Want Day

Eat What You Want Day can be a serious calorie glutton event! What is the first thing that comes to your mind if you could eat what you want? My immediate choice (and even my family knows this) is a Raspberry Chocolate Cake or anything with raspberry and chocolate. It has to be my favorite flavor combination. On the savory side – nothing beats short ribs. Pancakes and candy will do nicely too.

I would indulge in these recipes:

White Chocolate Raspberry Brownies from Flying on Jess Fuel. (drool)

Dark Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cheesecake featured at Emily Made That

Braised Short Ribs over Polenta from Platings and Pairings

others that are One 2 Try:

Whole Grain Carrot Cake Pancakes with Maple Cream Cheese Whipped Cream

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Key Lime Cheesecake Truffles

 

Today is also Twilight Zone Day. A day for the strange, mysterious and weird happenings. The TV show The Twilight Zone, took us to those places in our minds. What was your favorite episode?

I guess thinking we could eat what we want without affects on our waistlines – is something right out of the twilight zone.
