Double Chocolate Silk Cream Pie


Double Chocolate Silk Cream Pie
Well, hello again! It's been a while. A little over two months, but who's counting? I haven't forgotten you all, I've just been really busy with life and working behind the scenes on my blog redesign. I'm hoping it will be ready to go live by 2017, so let's keep our fingers crossed! In the meantime, let's enjoy some pie. As we all know, I have a very public love affair with chocolate SO the instant I saw this recipe for a double chocolate silk cream pie, I knew it needed to happen as soon as possible. And OXO's  9" pie plate from their awesome new glass bakeware line came perfectly in handy. I love their new line so much because it is made from thermal shock resistant borosilicate glass, which means it can withstand extreme temperature changes without cracking or shattering. Also, the generously sized rims make the pans so easy to carry.

Pumpkin Molten Lava Cakes

Pumpkin Molten Lava Cakes

Hi  there! Notice anything different about the blog today? Culinary Couture is now officially Confessions of a Confectionista! What do you guys think of the new name? The rebrand is only 50% underway since my redesign is not live yet, but I can't wait for you guys to see it! In  the meantime, do you SEE these ah-mer-zing pumpkin molten lava cakes? They are the epitome of Fall. The idea for these randomly came to me one night this week and I couldn't wait another second to test it out. Unfortunately, dulce de leche was harder to get my hands on than expected (boo Ohio!), but that's fine, because these were one hundred percent worth the wait! Literally, they were everything I expected them to be, plus so much more. Perfectly spiced, perfectly moist, and perfectly decadent. Just imagine taking a bite of a warm pumpkin pie and having it melt in your mouth. Need I say more?

Salted Chocolate Caramel Bars

Salted Chocolate Caramel Bars

Right away, the name of these bars should have caught your attention. Anything salted, involving chocolate OR caramel is something I want to dive right into. And I knew these bars were going to be great, but I didn't know they were going to be so great that I couldn't even take pictures because I was so busy stuffing one after the other in my mouth. True story. This recipe comes to you today from Dorie Greenspan's new book Dorie's Cookies , which comes out in October. Dorie has teamed up with OXO this year, one of my favorite brands, for their annual blogger campaign in support of Cookies for Kids Cancer .  For this blog post and every other blog post dedicated to the campaign, OXO will donate $100 to Cookies for Kids Cancer. I love participating in their campaign every year because it's for such a great cause, PLUS who doesn't love new OXO products? I would honestly buy their entire warehouse if I could. To whip up these bars, OXO sent me thei

Green Piña Colada Smoothie

Green Piña Colada Smoothie

Well hello! This post has been long overdue and I promise I have a good explanation for why I've been MIA. No, I'm not pregnant. But I am VERY slowly adjusting to married life and living with someone else, and at the same time, planning a BIG change for the blog. By the end of this year, I plan to re-brand and redesign my website. For a while now, I've felt uninspired. And after getting married recently, it really pushed me to want to start fresh and choose a new blog name that I felt better described me and my brand. Unfortunately, at 17 years old, you don't put too much thought into choosing a blog name. Honestly, at that time, I didn't even think my blog would grow into what it is today. But here I am, 8 years later, and although it's definitely a risky move to build everything from the bottom up again, I think I will be happier in the long run. So yeah, this whole re-branding thing has pretty much consumed my entire life and thus, I haven't h

What I Ate In Puerto Rico

What I Ate In Puerto Rico

Hello hello! It has been TOO long, guys. Too darn long. The last time we spoke, I was unpacking. Well, I'm done unpacking and I recently actually went on my honeymoon!...which means more packing and unpacking went down, but I'm basically a pro at that stuff now! As you probably guessed from the post title, I honeymooned in Puerto Rico! The hubs and I stayed in the beautiful Condado Vanderbilt Hotel which I HIGHLY, highly recommend! Our location was great because the street the hotel was on (Avenida Ashford) had a ton of restaurants and stores. Also, Old San Juan, which is also a prime area for restaurants, was a short taxi ride away. Yes, as a food blogger, I had to make sure I was going to have plenty of food options! Unfortunately, I didn't make sure my DSLR was always on me so some of these are less than stellar phone pictures! So, I'll try to make my descriptions as vivid as possible :P

Greek Vegetable Pizza

Greek Vegetable Pizza

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a guest blogger for Meriem as she unpacks and organizes. My name is Lauren Kelly and my blog is Lauren Kelly Nutrition . I am a nutritionist, healthy recipe blogger and cookbook author. I love sharing healthy recipes and I hope you like this Greek Vegetable Pizza (straight from my cookbook, The Greek Yogurt Cookbook !) This pizza can be a simple appetizer or easy enough to make as a lunch or dinner. I love Greek yogurt for it’s protein and its versatility. This is so simple, yet so tasty. You can easily add cooked, diced chicken if you’d like, or experiment with your favorite vegetables and cheeses. Chopped mint is an excellent garnish, and melds well with the Greek flavors of this dish. Please come and visit me on Facebook , Twitter and Pinterest ! Have a great day!

Chocolate Walnut Twist Bread

Chocolate Walnut Twist Bread

Well hello there everyone! It feels so good to be back! Though I am not REALLY back yet, just popping in to say hello, I'm alive and well! I'm officially a married woman and living in the Midwest now! It's definitely going to take some time adjusting, not to mention unpacking. So, I have a few friends guest posting for me in the meantime. Take it away Nancy! Hi everyone, I’m Nancy from gotta get baked and I’ve been a very bad blogger. I haven’t baked or posted anything in what feels like forever. So what’s brought me out of my self-imposed solitary? When a friend needs help, I spring into action! The lovely Meriem is caught up in a whirlwind of activities right now and she asked if I could guest post while she’s getting married and moving. Phew! I mean, only one of those activities would be crazy stressful but two at the same time! Meriem, you’re super woman. I wanted to make something rich, decadent and beautiful but also comforting and easy to make.
