Monte Cristo Sandwich
-
I had some leftover ham from the Christmas period that I stuck in the freezer. Last year I made soup with the leftovers and well that’s pretty boring! This time I decided to spice things up and make indulgent Monte Cristo sandwiches. If you’re still going strong on your New Years Resolutions look away now. If you want to break them, keep reading!

I’m making my first daring bakers entry tomorrow and it’s horribly complicated and I can’t post it for a few weeks yet so I thought some nice simple muffins would be good for today. I love coffee cake and I couldn’t really think of what the English equivalent would be.

I had these leftover Oreos from the US and they were starting to get a little stale so they were screaming to be baked into something!

Recipes that would suit either Christmas or New Year.

Lemon Meringue Pie

Lemon Meringue Pie

I love cake and my husband loves pie. I’m occasionally nice and take a break from cupcakes and make him something he likes! This is the first time I used my Gregg’s Favourite Puddings book. I really like this book. I think it will encourage me to branch out a little and make something I wouldn’t normally (lots of British desserts I’ve never made or eaten before). I think after 8 years I should try more British desserts.

Top Ten Cupcakes of 2010

Posted by on Dec 30, 2010 in Cupcakes | 4 comments

I’ve been reading lots round ups of the year and I think it’s a great idea. I have only just set up my Google Reader in the last few months. Previously I had everything book marked so I wasn’t able to read as many blogs as I do now.

I did a half year round up here of all the things I was proud of and what I wanted to accomplish. In this round up I’ve posted my Top 10 favorite cupcakes (in no particular order). No easy task considering I’ve made 155 posts so far this year and 57 of them were related in some way to cupcakes.

1. In March this Strawberry and Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Cone Cupcake was my first cupcake posting (and sadly got lost when I moved to WordPress). I love the way it looks when sliced down the middle. I threw some bright colored sprinkles into the batter to get the spotted effect in the cake.

I was going to make this for Christmas day dessert but in the end I’d already made so much food that I decided it would be best to wait a few days to make it. I’m glad I did because we were able to enjoy it.
