My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Chocolate Souffles

These are extremely rich, so a little goes a long way! I can usually get about 16 servings out of this recipe.
{ Prep time: 20 mins / Cooking Time: 12-15 mins / Difficulty: easy / Yields: 12-16 servings }

1 cup butter, cubed
8 squares (1 oz each) bittersweet chocolate, chopped
4 eggs
4 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups, plus 2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
1 cup miniature marshmallows
4 1/2 tsps cinnamon sugar

1. Grease 12 ramekins (possibly more depending on size of ramekins) and set aside. In large microwave-safe bowl, melt butter and chocolate; stir until smooth.
2. In large bowl, beat eggs and yolks on high speed for 3 mins or until light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beating until thick and lemon-colored, about 5 mins. Beat in chocolate mixture.
3. Combine flour and baking soda, then beat into egg mixture just until combined.
4. Fill prepared ramekins half full; sprinkle with marshmallows. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 mins or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers (if there are any!).
