Biscoff Bourbon Cookie Dough Truffles

Biscoff Bourbon Cookie Dough Truffles by The Sweet Chick
I know it's a little early to be thinking about Father's Day, but I was playing around with a recipe and it came out so good that I wanted to share.  Last year I made some Biscoff Bourbon Bacon Chocolate Chunk Cookies and they came out delicious.  I wanted to try the Biscoff and bourbon combo again, so I made these Biscoff Bourbon Cookie Dough Truffles and covered them in dark chocolate with a little bit of sea salt on top.  This was a good use of bourbon.

Strawberries and Cream Scones

Strawberries and Cream Scones by The Sweet Chick

The end of the school year is fast approaching.  Little man is already done with preschool.  I only have two weeks left until his sister is out also.  I am not sure if I am ready for both of them to be home all day yet.  For now I will try to remain calm and enjoy the Memorial Day weekend coming up.  We don't have definite plans, but there will be an ice cream social for our neighborhood that we may attend.  To kick it off right, I think I will pour myself a cup of coffee and bite into one of these Strawberries and Cream Scones.  They are full of fresh strawberries, sweetened with honey, and drizzled with a creamy glaze.

Hazelnut Coffee Cookies

#glutenfree #cookies #hazelnut #chocolatechip
Well, my Mother's Day didn't quite go as planned.  First the little guy caught some type of virus that started as hives all over his body, then led to a really high fever that took all day to get down, followed by head congestion and lethargy.  And he was even kind enough to pass his germs along to his father and I.  I was not in the mood to do anything on Sunday.  Which was fine, because it was my day to relax anyway.  I did receive some lovely gifts from the hubby and kids, which made things better.  Kinda of like these Hazelnut Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies made me feel when I first bit into one.  They are truly spectacular.  I am a big fan of the hazelnut/chocolate combo.  I hope you are too, because these cookies are so easy to make.

Hazelnut Caramel Coffee Macarons

 
Mother's Day is coming up this weekend.  How about baking her something special instead of buying something?  I know french macarons may look intimidating to make, but if I can make them while being interrupted fifty times by a four year old, you can certainly make them.  These Hazelnut Caramel Coffee Macarons are worth the effort.  They taste like one of those ridiculously expensive gourmet flavored coffees and they are so light and airy, you can't eat just one.  I know my mom would love to receive these on Mother's Day.

Coconut Banana Muffins

Coconut Banana Muffins by The Sweet Chick
In between all the rain showers, we have had some pretty nice days.  This past Sunday was one of them.  My husband and I actually took the kids to our community pool.  They have been begging to go since it opened April 1.  Only the neighborhood kids ventured out into the not so warm water.  The adults were all lounging around in the hot sun.  I am looking forward to some summer weather.  For now, I will have to do with some summer inspired treats.  These Coconut Banana Muffins with Tequila Lime Glaze fit the bill perfectly.
