Salted Caramel Budino!

Salted Caramel Budino is a pudding like dessert with two layers and a topping. I first had this delicious dessert at North in Kierland Commons, Scottsdale, Arizona on my 2nd Blogaversary. The food is fantastic, atmosphere is electric and the service is "just right"! My two favorite things on the menu.... the Braised Rib and the Salted Caramel Budino. I would go as far to say, this is my favorite dessert ever!

JJ's Irish Brownies!

Perfect quick dessert or treat for your friends, these are great for St. Patrick's Day or anytime!  

Brownies!! They are dense, fudgy, packed full of chocolate, and infinitely customizable depending on your favorite flavors. There are peanut butter brownies, salted caramel, mint, Oreo, cheesecake… you name an ingredient, and I guarantee a brownie has been made with it. Our St. Patrick's party needed something new and yummy. Could anything be better than really yummy brownies with an Irish twist? I just added Irish cream liqueur and some bittersweet chocolate pallets to a basic brownie recipe. For the frosting I added Irish cream liqueur and green food coloring to a cream cheese frosting.

The lore behind this recipe is that is has led to at least two marriage proposals. They were in the Feb 2014 Ladies Home Journal. Must say, they are really good and really easy to make. Just be careful who you serve them to!
