Puff Pastry Peach Tartlets

Summer is almost over but there's still time to enjoy some delicious peaches.  There's just something so incredibly intoxicating about the scent of a ripe peach.  Its gorgeous aroma, so sweet and fragrant, just makes you wanna sink your teeth into its juicy flesh.  I get so giddy when I see a beautiful display of these fuzzy fruits.  I'm sure the produce guys think I'm a little weird when I'm picking out peaches.  I love smelling them.  I can't help it.  You should really give it a try.  The next time you're at the grocery store or the farmer's market, stop and smell the peaches.  Just take a deep breath and inhale all the sweet fragrance. that's what I call aromatherapy.

Chocolate Espresso Cupcakes with Kahlua Cream Cheese Frosting

My cousin Kristen is getting married in a couple of weeks and the funny thing is we just sat down to do a cake tasting this weekend.  How crazy is that?  I mean, we had almost an entire year to do this but somehow we never got around to it.  We've talked about cake designs, colors and possible flavors but we waited till the very last minute to do the most fun part of all - the cake tasting.

Quick Fix Microwaveable Chocolate Chip Cookie (aka PMS Cure in a Cup)

Okay, let's face it ladies.  When it's around that time of the month, you're not a happy camper...and everybody knows it.  You're cranky, tired, emotional, indecisive, irrational and sometimes just downright psychotic.  Everyone and everything bothers you and nothing seems to be right in the world.  And to top it off, you've got these crazy cravings.  You're constantly looking for something sweet, salty, gooey and crunchy.  Admit it, you've stood in front of that fridge (which is packed with food by the way), whining like a baby,"There's nothing to eat. Waaaaaaaaah!"  And then you cry in despair (and don't you dare deny it because it's true!).
