Bakery Classics: Nutella Cream Puffs

Nutella Cream Puffs from PasstheSushi.com

It’s amazing what you can remember about food. The world goes whizzing by us at such a ridiculous speed that I can’t keep up. And, I’m no Super Woman juggling a job and three kids like a lot of you are. I’m just trying to hold my own. I don’t know where yesterday went. But I can remember exactly the first time my father made cream puffs. I can remember the smell of the choux paste baking into perfect little balls in the oven filling the house and how excited I was to pop an over stuffed cream filled bite […]

Eggnog Frangelico Gelato & Hand Made Ice Cream Scoop Giveaway

EggNog_Frangelico_IceCream_0223a

You know that old saying that nice things come in small packages? Well that’s what comes to mind with today’s post. Even though the end of the year has been kind to me with the current BigKitchen Le Creuset giveaway going on (and another surprise giveaway next week) today’s giveaway is very special to me. It may not come in a bright orange box, and Santa can’t sneak it down the chimney, because this one is hand made just for you by my man. If you are a long time follower of Pass the Sushi, or one of the many friends in […]

Banana Bread with Nutella Swirls

Nutella_banana_bread_0063

This awesome ruffle topped strapless dress that I wore to my friends wedding this weekend. (Though, I looked nothing like the model in the picture. Sorry boobs happen.) And this totally rocking purse that went along with it. (Look ma! I’m all growed up and have a bag with stuff in it) Orange wedges. Seriously, this is the only orange piece of clothing I own. Fancy pants mascara. Don’t get my wrong, I’m all for CoverGirl mascara, but this stuff rocks the casbah for when you need great eyes all night long.   PrintBanana Bread with Nutella Swirls Ingredients2 cups flour, […]

Toasted Marshmallow Squares & The Big Summer Potluck

Timing is everything, and I just happened to be in the right place at the right time to score myself  a ticket to the third annual Big Summer Potluck. BSP3 is the kind of foodie event that is a little more grounded from the usual food events and you aren’t going to find forums on how to code your site with the best SEO over, or how to snap a photo to be approved on a food site every time. Instead there were several small discussions on things of a more personal nature. How to make it all work for […]

Salted Peanut Butter Cookies with Nutella

Let’s talk Pinterest. I know I am late to the game with this post, but I am running on empty and Pinterest is an easy topic. Before I was addicted to it, pinning delicious meals and treats that peeked my eye, but recently I discovered all the other wonderful uses of Pinterest. Like getting dressed. Pinterest makes this handicapable girl get dressed in moments by showing me color organized outfits. Now I don’t have to walk into my comic shop filled with guys and ask if I look like a tool. Clearly if someone planned it, wore it and pinned […]

Nutella & Peanut Butter Granola Bars 3.0

Am I the only one who has a sticky note collection of recipes I have got to try piling up on my desktop, a mile long favorites folder and a binder just for the recipes I’ve torn from the glossy pages of magazines? Probably not – but I have been promising Briarrose from Flour Dusted that I would try this granola for over a month! Way not cool. Excuses? It was December, there was a ton to do, I’ve been sick, it snowed? Do any of these redeem my laziness? I guess in the long run it doesn’t matter because […]
