Slow Cooker Lasagna

 Everything that is in a oven-baked lasagna but in a slow cooker. Italian seasoned meat, pasta, tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, mozzarella and parmesan.
Lasagna is one of my favorite Italian dishes, I love all of the layers of cheese and the burnt crispy edges.
 But since summer is in full swing, I don't want to heat up my kitchen especially when its 90+ degrees outside because it takes a couple of hours to cool it down.
 I don't make it that often during the summer because of that and it can take a while to make it. Also it a time consuming to make.

Kitchen Sink Cookies

A sweet and salty cookie with brown butter, milk chocolate chips, bittersweet chocolate chips, toffee and salty kettle chips all in one cookie. Everything but the kitchen sink.
These cookies were inspired by a cookie from one of my favorite cafe, Panera,  The cookie their has caramel, chocolate chip and pretzels. 
I wanted to do something a little different from that cookie to get a sweet, salty and crunchy cookies. You can get all of that in one bite, sign me up for that.
Sweet from the chocolate, toffee and brown sugar. Salty and crunchy from the potato chips. Also get a slight nuttiness from the brown butter.
I choose to use kettle cooked potato chips because of they are crunchier than regular chips and they hold up better in the cookie dough.

Strawberry Chocolate Cheesecake

Tangy and creamy cheesecake full of juicy strawberries, chocolatey graham cracker crust, chocolate cover strawberries and drizzled with ganache. This recipe was requested by nephew, who's 11th birthday is coming up, he asked for a cheesecake as his birthday cake and he loves strawberries especially chocolate covered strawberries.
So I put two together and created this recipe, strawberry chocolate cheesecake. My nephew is excited and already has thanked me for the cheesecake before I made it.
I would make the cheesecake I used frozen strawberries because they would give me some of the strawberry juice and softer than fresh.

Oreo Cheesecake Doughnut Muffins

These cookies and cream or Oreo cheesecake doughnut muffins are slightly sweet and creamy with a hint of chocolate from the cookie sandwiches.
National Doughnut Day is coming this week, June 1st, so decided to make something that I have made before and is a big hit in my family, doughnut muffins.
Doughnut muffins are light and spongy and its doughnut batter but baked in a muffin tin. They are not greasy like you can get with regular doughnuts but they still taste delicious.
I made them for two post in two different flavors, Spiced Cranberry Orange Doughnut Muffins and cinnamon sugar and vanilla sugar Doughnut Muffins. I've always made two other post with Oreos, Oreo Cheesecake Cookies and Eggless Oreo Cheesecake Cookie Dough.
I love the combo of Oreo and cheesecake so much because the cream cheese or the cheesecake adds flavor the the chocolatey sandwich cookie.

Mango Coconut Lime Scones

A very Summery combination with sweetened mango, shredded coconut and tangy lime in a buttery scone.
Since I've started my blog, I've wanted to create a recipe that has mango in it because it is one of my favorite fruits and fruit juices.
I want to do this combination because it is sweet and refreshing to cool you down because of the heat. Where I live for the last month the highs have been in the 80's to mid 90's with 1000% percent humidity.
Also my niece and nephews are ending their school year today, when I put up this post, and I wanted to create a treat that I know that they will like because they love mango, lime and coconut.
In my previous post of scones, Meyer Lemon Cranberry and Milk Chocolate & Orange Scones, I shaped them in the nontraditional way. This time I did more of the traditional in the shape to look like a biscuit.
