Recipes I Want to Try

Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

The photo of this particular chocolate chip cookie made my mouth water. I really think I need to make them. Right. Now!

Blueberry Crumble Bars

These look quick and easy and could be the perfect lunchbox treat for the kids. I just so happen to have a couple of bags of frozen blueberries in the freezer.

I've always wanted to made my own pizza, but never got around to it. I'll give this one a go at some stage, possibly next week. With a family of five, I'm guessing I'd need to make at least two.

They sound delicious and I think they kids would love them as a snack in their lunchboxes. Until last week they were getting a store bought "healthy" treat in their lunchboxes every day. I'm not actually sure how healthy they were, but they loved them. Homemade has to be better than store bought, and they both love cheese. I figure I could make up a batch of this dough and use small pieces at a time and freeze the rest, cooking only what I'd need in a week.

Broccoli Cheddar Ale Soup

This sounds delicious. It's not something I've ever seen in Australia, and certainly never tasted. Having said that, four cups of grated cheese? In soup? That seems like a really, really unhealthy dish to me. Maybe one day.

Ina Garten's 'Beatty's Chocolate Cake'

Two of my favourite cake bloggers have called this chocolate cake their favourite. I figure there's a reason for that. Definitely trying this one soon. This week, in fact, if I can swing it.

ETA: I actually made this one Jan 20th 2011. I made up a half batch just to test the recipe and made cupcakes. It was late at night and my brain wasn't working well and I forgot to halve the eggs. It turned out too egg-y and had a tough crust. It wasn't quite chocolate-y enough for me, but that's probably because the recipe calls for "good" cocoa and I just used my standard Cadbury cocoa powder. I've been looking for better quality (aka more chocolate-y) cocoa for a while. It's not easy to come by in Australia, apparently.

Death by Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate chocolate chip cookies that you can add anything to. Contains a packet of chocolate instant pudding mix.

Crockpot BBQ Chicken and Oven Fries

This one sounds delicious and quick, which is always a bonus. I'm not sure how well it would go down with my family, but I definitely want to try it.

Tortellin Soup from Tasty Kitchen

This one sounds just as tasty as the other version I want to try. I keep forgetting to pick up tortellin at the supermarket, though! I must plan ahead more and hopefully I can do that when the kids go back to school next week!

ETA: I finally made this last night, 22/2/11, and it was absolutely delicious. I made it with spinach and ricotta tortellini and modified the recipe slightly. I'll be posting my modifications soon.

"Better Than Sex" Poke Cake

This cake sounds delicious and possibly heart attack inducing. It's chocolate cake with holes poked into it, covered in sweetened condensed and caramel ice cream toppping, then covered with whipped cream and caramel candy bar pieces. I don't often, like nearly never, bake cakes from a box mix, but I might give into it for this one!

Perfect Chocolate Cake

I just came across the blog One Perfect Bite and saw this chocolate cake. It looks delicious. I'm always on the look out for the perfect chocolate cake. I've been looking for years and never found it. I'll keep you posted!

Chicken Fried Rice

My kids have been asking me to make fried rice for a while. This one sounds pretty good.

I'll be adding to this  post as I see recipes I want to try.
