Qyel Antonio is a great photographer, and by the looks of it, equally as impressive in the kitchen. He just put us on notice that he has some amazing creations coming out of his Bakery and Pastry rotation in culinary school. One that caught our eye was this deconstructed carrot cake dish, featuring a brown sugar spice cake, cream cheese mousse, carrot sauce, rum raisin ice cream and candied walnuts.
These Dulce de Leche Brownies are the definition of eye candy… alongside Olivia Munn! But lets get back to the main course, if you guys aren’t familiar with your Latin-American treats, Dulce de Leche is a thick milk-based caramel sauce. It sounds delicious, tastes even better, and you can even eat it by itself if you like.
I prefer to have my cake and eat it too, which is why I chose to eye these Dulce de Leche Brownies! They are basically made with one cup of Dulce de Leche (home made or store bought), pecans or walnuts, semisweet chocolate, cocoa powder and your basic brownie essentials like eggs, butter and flour. Look at the crazy swirls on the crust of the brownie… they are making me drool. (Recipe @ MissInTheKitchen)
Can you smell the aroma of these wafting from the kitchen, through your hallways, into your bedroom, and up your nostrils? We’re looking at a rather over the top cinnamon roll filled with shredded apples (drool) and chopped walnuts, all smothered in cream cheese icing with a hint of coffee. These things are completely home made and pair amazingly with a nice cup of coffee. (Recipe @ MissInTheKitchen)
In the spirit of the season where food establishments everywhere bring to the plate entrees featuring new fish items, Panda Express is no exception. With the introduction of a new Honey Walnut Shrimp, we get to taste afresh tempura shrimp that’s wok-tossed in a gourmet honey sauce and further topped with glazed walnuts. Advertised as a nice combination of “sweet and crispy”. Can’t lie, does sound pretty tempting!
