  • Rhubarb are just coming into season in my area and that means that it’s time to round up a few recipes that use itDaily Unadventures in Cooking‘s Apple and Rhubarb Crisp is a great way to start off because the recipe is simple and delicious. The filling for this crisp is a combination of apples and rhubarb, spiked with a little orange juice and cinnamon. The topping is made with oatmeal and brown sugar, as well as flour and butter, so it has a nice nuttiness to it in addition to a crisp buttery flavor. Serve it warm, with a bit of ice cream if you’re feeling indulgent.
  • Food Mayhem tried to make a batch of Caramel Macchiato Cupcakes that would taste as close as possible to the drinks with the same name that you can get at Starbucks – and it looks like FM came pretty close! The cupcakes start with a coffee batter. The batter is divided and espresso powder is added to a portion of it – standing in for the flavor of the espresso shot in the drink. A light, foamy meringue icing and a generous drizzle of caramel syrup finishes these off. I’ll have a latte with mine!
  • Valentine’s Day may be over for this year, but there is no reason to hold off on trying to make your own batch of Big Red Lolipops, which She Simmers made for V-Day. These lollipops are made from scratch and, as you can imagine, taste a bit better than the type that you got as a reward at the doctor’s office as a kid. You’ll need a candy thermometer, as well as some lollipop molds and sticks to make these, but these supplies (minus the thermometer) can be found cheaply at many craft stores and you can use them again and again as these sweets make great treats at holidays and birthdays.
  • Praline’s are a sweet southern favorite, one of those foods that can be over-the-top sugary, but is still so tasty that you can’t stop at just one. Homesick Texan‘s Mexican Chocolate Pralines are a variation on the basic recipe. You’ll need a candy thermometer for this recipe, as well, and also a big block of spicy Mexican Chocolate, like Ibarra. The pralines have a good chocolate flavor to them and, more importantly, they have a very nice spiciness to them. This comes from the chocolate, as well as from the cinnamon, cayenne and orange zest added in. They’re a cut above ordinary pralines and a great candy to make if you’re feeling like something a little different.
  • I don’t know how a fan of cinnamon rolls could possibly resist a slice of Culinary Concoctions‘s Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake with Cream Cheese Frosting. This cheesecake starts off with a crust made of cinnamon roll dough that is filled with some cheesecake batter. A spicy, sweet cinnamon filling is added to the cheesecake and swirled into it, and the whole thing is finished off with some cream cheese frosting. It is over-the-top but every bite is going to be worth it.
