I know it’s super easy to go out and buy a lifetime supply of Cadbury Creme Eggs, and it may be a little Pinterest-y of me to suggest that it’s always better to make something yourself than buy it premade, but in this case, I’m pretty sure the extra work is worth it.

Second of all, I can’t think of any two sentences more impressive than, “Care for a Cadbury Creme Egg? I made them myself.” [Not Without Salt]

If you’re watching the Oscars tonight, you’re going to get hungry. So why not eat a hot dog or three inspired by the Best Picture nominees?

A Francophile fan of “Midnight in Paris”? Try the Parisian dog with pâté, pork sausage, frisée and creamy dijon vinaigrette. Or just really loved “Tree of Life”? Then garnish your dog with spinach and mayonnaise. Click the link for full recipes — happy eating (and watching)! [Serious Eats]
These lemon poppy seed pancakes not only look delicious, they incorporate a lot of the springy flavors we were drooling over in our recent cupcake orgy post (citrus and berries are such a great combination). But these pancakes have something going for them that cupcakes don’t: it’s socially acceptable to scarf down a pile of them first thing in the morning. Check out the recipe here, and let the Sunday morning pancake scarfing commence! [via Picky Cook]

Here at The Frisky we’re pretty sure “No Bake Nutella Cheesecake” is the most beautiful string of words the English language could ever produce, but if you need any more convincing about the glory of this recipe, here are a couple other phrases that might tempt you: “Oreo cookie crust” and “15 minute prep time.” Oh lord, I’m feeling faint. Somebody hand me a spoon! [My Baking Addiction]

Maybe it’s a New Year, New You thing, but I’ve been trying to eat a litttttle healthier and have been trying to work in some new veggies into my diet. With that in mind, I bought some kale recently and fell in love! Additionally, I’ve been wanting to try cooking with miso, a Japanese ingredient that adds instant punch to basically ANY marinade. After the jump, a super delicious, healthy, and easy dinner featuring all of the above. Keep reading »
This recipe for apple-vanilla bourbon instantly made my mouth water, and the best part? It’s the easiest recipe ever. Three ingredients, three steps: cube the apple, split the vanilla bean, combine with bourbon, done. It needs to steep for 5-7 days, so pour yourself a shot of regular bourbon now, and enjoy the fruits of your labor next weekend. Should be well worth the wait! [via There Will Be Bourbon]
