Pineapple - Jalapeno Daiquiri

    Happy Sunday! I am feeling HOT, really HOT, and no matter what I drink to cool me down from this hot weather it is not working.  So I guess I need to turn up.  
    I been in the mood for a nice and different type of alcoholic drink.  I had some pineapple in my refrigerator that I needed to use before it spoiled so I was excited to make this Pineapple -Jalapeno Daiquiri.  
    If you not a fan of heat, this is not for you.  I love the tang and ripple effect from the heat of the jalapeno mixed with alcohol.  
     The weekend is not over, sit back take a sip of this daiquiri and bring the heat on. 

Pineapple-Jalapeno Daiquiris
1.  Thinly slice 1 jalapeno (remove the seeds for less heat).  Combine with 2 1/2 cups chopped pineapple in a shallow dish; freeze until firm, at least 3 hours.
2.  Transfer to a blender; add 3/4 cup rum, 3 tbsp. sugar, the juice from 1 lime and 1 1/2 cups ice and puree until smooth.
Divide among 4 glasses; top with jalapeno slice, cilantro spring and a maraschino cherry.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Thumbprints

     Hi Desseritas!  Do you guys love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?  I loved it as a child, because my grandmother use to make homemade jam and I would smother my sandwich with nothing but jam and maybe a teaspoon of peanut butter.  My grandmother would cut my sandwich in these cute shapes, and of course cutting off the crust.  I miss those days.  Now as an adult I could care less for it.  But as a mom, I never stop making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  When my daughter asked for a snack, I came to the rescue with peanut butter cookies.

Cream-Filled Doughnuts

      Some think because I bake a lot, my kids always eating sweets.   Yes, my munchkins are my testers, but they might have piece of cake today, and nothing until Friday.  I want to make sure my girls have no cavities, eating healthy, and of course not on a sugar high climbing walls.  But my girls can be strict when letting me know how something taste.  Last Friday I passed a Krispy Kreme on my way to the grocery store.  I wanted so bad a doughnut but I refused to get out of the car because it was too darn cold.  So you know what I had on my mind all the way home.

Strawberry Shortcake

    Hi guys sorry for me be MIA.  I have been under the weather.  Still not feeling up to it yet, so this post would be short.   Due to Valentine's I had a lot of strawberries left over that I definitely did not want to go to waste.  I had a lot of strawberry ideas, but what hit it for me is when my daughter asked me to buy her the doll Strawberry Shortcake.  So of course, I made this wonderful strawberry shortcake.
