Where I Shop

This is all we had in measly Portland, Oregon.


And what is that, you might ask? That is Oregon state's solitary Decorette Shop, all 300 square feet of it-don't let the upstairs fool you! And, don't believe what they say on the 'about page' about being knowledgeable, not true at all.

Keeping that in mind, a few months ago Bakerella posted a blog series titled, Where I Shop: Cake Art Party Store! This fabulous shop is located just outside Atlanta, Georgia, but I like to think that it's secretly in heaven. A little known fact is that Gabriel and I nearly eloped to Atlanta, and before we moved to Utah we were dead set on a move to Cary, North Carolina. At least in Cary we would have been only 6 hours away, as opposed to 29 hours! (I'm still not giving up on the move to Cary...)

Now... I don't adore Bakerella because of her darling cake pops, or her intensely creative spirit, though all good things. I adore Bakerella because of her insatiable genuine personality that shines through every blog post. However, when she posted her blogs: Where I shop Part 1 & Part 2 & Part 3, I uncovered another emotion I had for Bakerella: Envy. What a lucky girl!!


Then we moved to Utah, and I discovered... not only... Baker's Cash and Carry, but... Orson Gygi! At Baker's Cash and Carry I was swimming in 10 pound bricks of chocolate. Plus, with the opportunity to sample each different type, I decided upon my favorites:

Callebaut #821 Milk Chocolate
and...
Guittard French Vanilla Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate


At Gygi I had to control myself, not a behavior I'm all too fond of. But, knowing I could return in the very, very near future, and knowing what an indulgent husband I have, I simply selected a few wonderful and much needed items and in honor of Bakerella, I picked out some lollipop sticks and copied her pick for darling cupcake liners! Now I can say, finally, lucky me!

Where do you shop?

Thanksgiving Pie

I presume most of us start eating dessert early Thanksgiving morning; I know I do.

This tradition started as a child - I remember watching my Mother every Thanksgiving Eve rolling out pie dough on the huge black countertop in my parent's home. There were two heaters in the kitchen, one on each side of the room; Pammy and I would sit, each of us on one heater vent, opposite sides of the room, knees pulled up to our chest, tshirt pulled over our knees and down to our feet, monopolizing all the hot air to ourselves... and there we would wait as she would cut the ingredients and flour the counter. As soon as she started rolling it out we would hop up, sneak several handfuls dipping them in cinnamon sugar as she decorated the crust and filled the dough with delicious fillings.

So after a cozy sleep dreaming of pie, we could nothing to stop ourselves from whipping up a bowl of fresh cream to get our first taste of Thanksgiving Dessert, first thing in the morning. Why would we?

I hope you get lots of pie today; I know I will!

Happy Thanksgiving!


I copied this video from my sisters blog. Without sounding trite, I was truly touched by this video. I feel it embodies the purpose of giving thanks, and expresses better than I could articulate, the feelings I have for the wonderful blessings I've been given in my life. Too often I find myself wrapped up in the things I hope for - the things I wish I had, but I have been reminded lately the journey is the purpose and the joy is in the journey; finding bliss regardless of circumstance.

Be thankful, simply.

Easy Peasy

Don't lie and tell me you haven't noticed the quality of my photos have taken a drastic turn for the worse. It's depresses me; who wants bad pictures of food? It just looks like bad food.

I wanted to give you a whole month of Thanksgiving desserts, but instead you only got 1 week. I wanted to give you German Chocolate Pie, Pumpkin Shortbread, Egg Nog Ice Cream, Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Pie, Peppermint Bars, Pumpkin Chiffon Pie, Gingerbread Brownies, Pumpkin Ice Cream, Candied Cookies, Creamy Lemon Tart, Peppermint Ice Cream, Layered Orange Shortbread with Cranberry Mousse; but I went and dropped my camera down an embankment and into a waterfall and it eventually quit on me. (I know! You are sick of hearing about it - well I'm sick of living it!)

What I can give you, however, is a review.



Dream Dinners
845 N. 100. W #105
Orem, UT   84057
801.225.7655
Hours By Appointment

The concept of Dream Dinners is a modern answer to the dinner time dilema.


  • Step 1: Once a month make an appointment, or even better, once a year make an appointment for a revolving date for 12 months.
  • Step 2: Hang out at Dream Dinners for a few hours and simply prepare meals for an entire month.
  • Step 3: Seal them in a plastic ziploc, adhere a plastic recipe tag, and take them home to store in your freezer.
  • Step 4: Once a week transfer all your weeks meals to the fridge to thaw
  • Step 5: Each night - pull a meal out of your fridge, cook, serve, enjoy
Dream Dinners has all the ingredients, spices and items you need to make all your meals right there in their kitchen with easy to read recipes and instructions. By the time you leave you will have all the dinners you need for the whole month ready to go in your freezer, and in just a few minutes at home you can present your family with a delicious dinner.


 
Danielle Mahoney and Jean Colarusso were great hostesses. They sent me home with three meals to test out: Kentucky Pork Chops, Lemon Chicken Piccata, and Savory Honey Grilled Chicken with Sesame Honey Butter - the Honey Grilled Chicken was my favorite. Each meal was simple to prepare, equally easy to store, and fabulously convenient.



While I do recommend Dream Dinners the prices were a bit steep for me, personally. My three meals, three servings each, retail at $30 for entrée only. Adding the convenience and ease, in conjuction with the peace of mind knowing that dinner is always taken care of is something that definitely offsets the price, but naturally would have to be evaluated by each individual. Consider also that while you are preparing the meals in the Dream Dinners Kitchen, you are cooking them at home - so while you escape the mess of prep, you can not avoid the mess of cooking or eventual cleanup.

One of the perks, is that Dream Dinners has a Menu Launch Party each month for customers to preview eight dishes on the menu before blindly deciding on meals, a service that is free provided by the kitchen. Upcoming launch is Wednesday, December 2 @ 4:00 pm.



Another great perk is that the menu offers a veritable selection of choices, not to mention changes each month so you aren't eating repetitively. Also, because the kitchen is open by appointment only, you aren't sharing the kitchen with strangers whose habits you don't know. Moreover you can get together with friends and prepare your meals together for the whole month; something I was able to do on our review night which I can attest is a lot of fun!



The best news is that you can win a Session Sampler, valued at $75, by visiting the Orem Dream Dinners blog! (Contest was scheduled to be up on the 24th, so keep checking in!) If you don't win, or can't wait for the annoucement, mention Fahrenheit 350° and get 5% off your first order.

6 hours & 12 minutes

We live exactly 6 hours and 12 minutes from Las Vegas, by car. I'm not really a big "Vegas" fan, but the sound of a weekend vacation and an all you can eat buffet really had my ears ringing. We even almost booked a hotel at MGM; they were having a weekend special: $73 dollars a night + 1 night free... but we've decided to stay home.


One of my favorite things about the holidays are the limitless potential they hold, whether home or away - for such things as dessert buffets. Last week, during my blogiversary celebration (which today is the last day to enter btw), all of my featured bloggers donated fabulous buffet recipes, not to mention the treats themselves! From Biscotti to fabulous cookies and more fabulous Cookies to Muffins to Toffee.

Today, getting back to the November theme of promised Thanksgiving desserts, I am going to add a must have to that list of buffet desserts already given:

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

Line cookie sheet with foil
Make sure foil completely covers pan, and up sides of pan
Grease with butter

20 oz. chopped chocolate
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 ½ cups nuts (I prefer walnuts)
Place all ingredients into a large bowl - set aside

Over med heat, bring to a boil:
12 oz. evaporated milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 sticks butter
4 cups sugar
Cook for 8 minutes, once liquid has reached a low rolling boil
Pour over chocolate
Stir quickly until chocolate and marshmallows have melted
Pour immediately into prepared pan
Spread evenly and let set overnight in cool place
When fudge is firm and chilled cut into squares, or use a cookie cutter for desired shapes
Wrap tightly to prevent air from drying out fudge
Keep in a cool place
Airtight, will last several weeks
This is also a great treat to serve guests before your feast, as a thank you if you are celebrating at another person's home, or for stocking stuffers for next month!

The Day After

What's behind door #Friday?

Photobucket

Just what are Lisa's main interests? You got it: Baseball & Food; redolent, delectable and exciting masterpieces on and off the field! I met Lisa just over one year ago when I joined the Daring Baker's. She was the first person to welcome me to the group and the first to comment on my inaugural challenge. I've come to learn that my first impression of Lisa was spot on, she is genuine, thoughtful, and of course incredibly talented.

Lisa's tagline is: "A whole lotta food with a side of baseball'. Ultimately Lisa plans to open an adorable bistro/patisserie, but has been sidetracked by an unfortunate injury to her knee. Though the injury has put a halt to her Grand Opening - surgery, the use of a cane, and immobility didn't stop her from baking. She simply improvised using a fondue pot as a stovetop off the couch. Now that is dedication!


Are these not the most gorgeous macarons, you've ever seen, and pumpkin macarons at that? Yes please! Move over Tartelette!

Admire this tuile inspired lemon meringue pie! It is mouth watering with layers of lemon curd, meringue, and tuile cookies fashioned after a napoleon!

Lisa is donating her personal favorite dark chocolate peanut butter chip cookies and chocolate chunk brown butter cookies and a surprise treat revealed to the winner only upon arrival of the prize package! Are you expecting the recipe too? Of course she is donating that: Levain Bakery Copycat Cookies.

At this point, you are wishing her bistro/patisserie was a reality - I know! So... to enter this giveaway head over to Parsley, Sage, Dessert and Line Drives and send Lisa some well wishes so she can get up, get better, and get moving! We need a Lisa Michele patisserie! Then come back and comment here, letting me know what you would purchase at her patisserie!


Violà! We are just one day away from the final reveal of the 2009 Fahrenheit 350° Blogiversary Giveaway. Here is a recap of what you could win:
Door #Monday; Chocolate Buttery Toffee from French Knots
Door #Tuesday; Pumpkin Muffins from Sugar Crafter
Door #Wednesday; Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies from Buttercakes
Door #Thursday; Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti from LaDue & Crew

What's behind Door #Wednesday?
Buttercakes by Evan

Photobucket

Is it okay to say that Evan is my favorite? Sssshhh, don't tell Pammy or Tracy!

Though Evan has a boy name, she is all girl, and who doesn't love a little sassy girl with a sporty attitude? I met Evan when I was searching for carrot cake decorations. Remember when I had my (one and only) TV debut?, on the elusive access cable television station? I was searching for ideas to really wow my fans, and I came across her gorgeous carrot cake with... Starburst carrots!


Then came this:


... and I knew immediately that we were long lost friends! Evan and I started emailing back and forth, and then we exchanged a couple voicemails; she has the cutest southern accent! Evan and I are great friends, we have a thousand and one things in common, and I can't wait to meet her! We have plans to go to the opening of the Harry Potter Theme Park together, and I am just itching with excitement!

If you've been reading this blog for any time at all, you've heard me mention Evan. In June, I posted my favorite cake of hers (to date (...up to June)) of farm animals. Evan has an incredible cake business, Buttercakes by Evan, in Mobile, Alabama. I send her orders all the time, but the problem is - she doesn't ship... she just teases and torments me! However, if you live within 50 miles of Mobile, she will deliver! Her blog is not only for showing off her incredible cakes, and ordering, but for giving away free tutorials on how to make incredible things from fondant, gumpaste, and other fancy etc. Evan also works as a pastry chef for a local restaurant in Alabama, so go get your sweet fix and then come back and brag to me... I'll probably cry!

Evan is donating 1 dozen of The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies...Ever...No Lie... to my blogiversary celebration! Look at that picture! These have 2 sticks of melted butter in them! Have you ever had results like this with melted butter? Um, I'll answer that for you: No!! I'm telling you, she's amazing!
She's so amazing, she's giving you the recipe:
The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies...Ever...No Lie...
The Dry Stuff:
2 ¼ cups AP flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups chocolate chips

The Wet Stuff:
¾ cups granulated sugar
¾ cups light brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla

Whisk together the Dry Stuff, make a well in the center, and set aside
Whisk together the Wet Stuff and pour into the Dry Stuff
Quickly fold the ingredients together just until combined
Do not overmix

Use a spoon or a disher and dish out your cookies, 2 inches apart, on an ungreased baking sheet
Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes
Let cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes
Transfer to a wire rack or paper towel-lined counter top
To enter this giveaway: Visit Buttercakes by Evan and get lost in heaven. Then when you have regained consciousness, come back and tell me what you would order, what your favorite tutorial is, or just what you love over there!

Make sure and come back tomorrow to see what else you can win, and enter for more chances to take home everything!

First time here? All week I am celebrating my blogoversary with prizes and treats and bloggers and giveaways! Everyday something new will be up for grabs, and everyday you can enter to win!
