I love that +Brooks Walker took this Chocolate Fix Cheesecake and RAN with it! He didn't stop at the chocolate cheesecake, or ganache...there's even a chocolate crust that I can't stop staring at! Perfection as always, Brooks!
 
CHOCOLATE FIX CHEESECAKE
Recipe begins here http://cakewalkr.com/chocolate-fix-cheesecake/

A creamy, all-chocolate cheesecake with a lush marbled topping is truly sublime. Dessert never had it so good! Care for a slice?

Who's Game Day ready?! I am! I come bearing crunchy bites filled with Frank's RedHot Buffalo chicken and cheese! Besides chips & salsa, this is the easiest recipe you'll be making come game day. Scouts honor. Girls Scouts honor...whatevs!

These are the PERFECT game day snackaroo! Buffalo sauce is a part of game day tradition in my house, and it wouldn't be the same without it. These little dudes are my personal fave, and I've eaten roughly 37,000 of them. Brett on the other hand, "favorited" the Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwich recipe.

To that I say, "My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father. Prepare to die!". The cool people will get that obscure movie reference ;-)

Have you guys entered my Give-Back Giveaway yet? No? Then you should! Since I had a really wonderful year in 2013, I thought it was important to give back, "pay it forward" if you will. So I've put together a little package that I think all bakers would love! It's my way of saying I love you...so they ya go! Happy 2014 everyone! Xoxo!

Happy Monday Everyone!! I wanted to stop by and show you guys a part of the reason I've been absent, and what has been consuming 150% of my time....I give you my Cradle Cake! This was modeled after a combination of 2 pictures, and the clients color scheme was also customized. The original Cradle Cake was of course made the wonderful and sweet Shawna McGreevy...one of ma' cake heroes!

This cake took FIVE days from beginning to end, the first 3 days were dedicated to dry time for the actual cradle pieces. Then the baking and assembly took about 2 days total. It was a French Vanilla Cake with a Fresh Strawberry filling inside, and the teddy bear was all modeling chocolate...so it was equally delicious. I've been working on MANY more cakes, not just this one, but to date this is the most time consuming and difficult cake I've ever made. And let me tell you, I was in HOG HEAVEN! I loved every second of it! Every. Stressful. Second. ;-)

Here is a link to more of my work if you're interested in seeing what I've been up to! https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.291532410978726.1073741826.239511192847515&type=3

One year ago today, I started Niki's Sweet Side with this very recipe for Snicker's Fudge! I'm beyond happy and grateful for all the amazing friends and followers I've gained this past year. You guys and gals are the BEST and I can't wait to share another year with you guys! I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas, and that everyone has a happy and safe New Year! Ps I am totally eating some of this with my coffee. Don't judge me. Xoxo ~ Niki

+Nicole Shepherd ---You really did it with this one.  We have all kinds of dietary restrictions in our family....life threatening allergies and we are gluten and sugar free.  But THIS I am going to have to remake. I think I can do it.  YUMMO! Thanks for fabulous inspiration.

This was my first time at Greek at the Harbor, and it was fabulous! Their outdoor patio has a wonderful view and is fully enclosed, allowing the outside "feel" without the cold or wind! Our waiter was prompt and polite, the food was AMAZING! We went there for lunch and of course had to try the falafel. It was delish, and I would HIGHLY recommend this lovely restaurant to anyone that's in the area!
