Jalapeno Popper Roll Ups and Creamy Apple Dessert

As part of our Super Bowl Sunday spread, I decided to make something new, to see how it tastes. I perused the interweebs, and found this recipe, that caught my eye. My hubby and I are fans of Jalapeno Poppers, so we thought we’d give this one a go. It’s a definitely a twist on the original, but was easy to make, and not bad. The recipe says it makes 16 servings, but I have at least another batch worth, of the filling left. So for us, it actually makes twice as much, which we’ll make at another time. Definitely great for a crowd though, since it makes so much!!

I was also looking to make a new dessert, so when I came across this Creamy Apple Dessert recipe, I wanted to give it a try!! It was definitely a hit with us, and even my parents. It tastes like an apple cheesecake, so if you’re into that combo, you’ll like it too. This recipe would be even better with cherry pie filling, which is what I’ll be trying next time for sure!! I may actually take the time, to make the filling from scratch, to lessen the sugar content. Will be sure to make this one again soon.

McDonald’s Maple Cream Baked Pie? We Like!!

My hubby and I gave it a try, earlier in the week, and we enjoyed it!! It tastes like it sounds…creamed Maple syrup…omnomnom. So if you like the liquid gold, we call maple syrup, I think you’ll like this pie!!

McDonald’s After Eight Baked Pie…Whaaat?!

The second I saw this, I knew we HAD to try it!! How could this be anything, but pure edible enjoyment…right?! I’m sad to say though…it fell short of my expectations. Not that they were sky high or anything…but still LOL It did taste like the After Eight mint filling, but the ‘chocolate’ flavoured crust, left much to be desired. Oh well, at least I can say, we tried it!!

Wanda’s Pie In The Sky and Lemon Meringue Bliss

A couple weekends ago, my hubby and I went to Kensington Market, to spend a sunny Sunday, walking around. We always stop by, whenever we’re there, because they have great pies. We usually get their sour cherry pie, because I love sour cherry…yum!!

This past visit we got their Lemon Meringue pie, and it didn’t disappoint!! It was just a thing of beauty, with the sky high meringue, and very lemony…omnomnom!! And not the artificial kind other, just pure lemon flavour – exactly the way I like it 😀 So if you’re ever in Kensington Market, stop by Wanda’s Pie in the Sky, for a cup of coffee and a piece of pie!!

Mmm…Lemon Meringue Pie

I can’t think of a better way, to end an evening, then with a wonderfully tart piece of lemon meringue pie…omnomnom. I can’t bring myself to have at it, and make my own from scratch, because I’m still a bit intimidated by the meringue. So, this was yet another store bought pie, but was every bit as good as it always is – whenever we buy it 🙂
