Chocolate Bundt Cake

O Chocolate.. wherefore art thou chocolate.. (laughs). Before you get upset at me for butchering Shakespeare’s most beloved play, I must tell you, that’s how I reacted when I saw this cake. Yes, as you can tell I’m featuring ‘cake day‘ today and I decided to start off with this delicious Chocolate Bundt Cake recipe from the website Food52 (I love a lot of their recipes). At this moment, I’ve decided, to stop typing and allow this cake to speak for itself. View the ingredient list below, and click above for the full recipe. Another ‘cake‘ recipe is coming up..

Short Rib Ragu

Around here, it’s getting a lot colder; and when the temperature drops, I love to make a “comfort food” dish. So I went to the trusty website Food52.com, and found this beautiful Short Rib Ragu recipe. I remember eating short ribs (with the bone in) at my mom’s house when I was little, so I had a feeling this dish might make me smile and of course one up my mom ;) (of course nothing beats my mom’s cooking to me). And I love that  you can reuse these leftovers to make a new and wonderful dish (like a good ol’ po’ boy). Enjoy the ingredients list below and click the link above for the recipe. Enjoy :)

Roasted Chicken w/Cardamom & Yogurt

By now, I think everyone knows I’m a connoisseur of chicken recipes (lucky for me I know a lot about other things too lol). For me, chicken is easy to cook, I can clean it in my sleep, and can be a delicious meal paired with any side dishes. This Roasted Butterflied Chicken with Cardamom and Yogurt recipe, from Food52.com, took my breath away; and I love that it’s cooked in a cast iron pan. And the yogurt sauce.. looks divine. Perfect for dinner in the winter. View the ingredients list below and click the link above for the recipe. Happy Friday!

Shrimp Burgers w/Garlic Aioli

I found another great recipe over at Food52.com. This Shrimp Burger with Roasted Garlic-Orange Aioli looks so good that it makes me miss summer (laughs). I love burgers (especially turkey burgers), but every now and then I love to eat or create a new burger. The creator of this recipe, EmilyC, states “The roasted garlic-orange aioli plays double-duty here: it binds the shrimp burgers and serves as a perfect condiment slathered on a toasted bun.” Others tips recommend making this the day before and letting it sit in the fridge overnight (tightly covered), to allow the aioli’s flavors to fully develop. I can’t wait to try this out. Enjoy the ingredients list below and click the link above for the full recipe. Enjoy :)

To Chocolate or Not to Chocolate Fondue

I’ve always been fascinated with fondue. I don’t know if it’s the chocolate, or dipping your food into something surprisingly good; but I’ve always enjoyed the fondue experience (I’m such a dipper when it comes to food *laughs*). During my online travels (being on the internet is like traveling for me), I discovered this wonderful Fondue recipe that I knew I had to share with my blogging family. The recipe “Coconut Cajeta & Chocolate Fondue” created by Amanda & Merrill and featured on Food52.com, really sounds delicious.

Now I don’t know if you’re dippers like me, but I can’t wait to try this and have a relaxing evening enjoying my fondue. Fondue can also be sensual, but I don’t think I want to hear anybody’s story on how sensual right now *laughs*. I hope you enjoy this recipe and I wish you a wonderful Friday :)
