This craftalong is very quiet. Huh

For January's sweet-tooth recipe I made a variation on the Indian dessert Shrikand. I don't really like things painfully sweet so this suited me.


2 cups or 5 dl Greek yogurt
1 handfull hazelnuts
1 handfull almonds
0,5 cup or 1.25 dl powder sugar
1 full teaspoon  ground cardamom

Chop the nuts roughly and mix with the other ingredients.
Serve very cold decorated with fruit or as in the picture sprinkled with cinnamon.

I was just thinking it was rather quiet....

I made what is called a 'Bomb' and it is a layer cake of sorts. Unfortunately, my camera is broken and I have not yet replaced it, but I'll still post the recipe.


-1 chocolate cake (I use the out of the box recipe things, no use making it from scratch if I'm mixing with other things) Do not ice this cake!!
-Heath Candybar pieces (They sell packages of these, or you can buy the candy and chop them up, whichever you prefer)
-Jello Instant Choc. Pudding (I use choc. pudding, you can use whatever kind for a variation of this recipe, lol)
-1 container Cool Whip
-A fairly large bowl

1. Make the chocolate cake. Follow instructions on box or make from scratch, whichever you prefer.
2. When the cake is cooled, cut it into little pieces, as if you were giving a piece to a child, Not a big slice, but no bite size.
3. Make the chocolate pudding and set it in fridge to thicken, or follow instructions.
4. On the bottom of the bowl, put cake pieces across the whole bottom.
5. On top of the cake layer, put a layer of your pudding.
6. On top of the pudding layer, sprinkle heath pieces everywhere, don't cover the whole layer with the pieces, Use them the same consistency like choc.chips in a cookie. Not in every bite, but frequent enough.
7. On top of that layer, spread a layer of cool whip (or other whipped topping).
    Repeat steps 4-7 until the bowl is full.
8. *Optional* This is how I like mine served, at least: After completing, put it into the fridge for a while, just so it gets cool. I like it this way because everything is at the same temp. when eating it.

I hope this made sense, its really not complicated, just a little time consuming, mainly because you have to bake a cake, lol.

I reccomend serving in a bowl, and scooping it out with a spoon. It is SO good.

This is my favorite dessert ever!  The nuts and stuff are pretty expensive around here, so I haven't been able to make it lately. I am making it soon though for a church bake sale!


*1 cup butter                                                 1 pkg. club crackers

*1 cup brown sugar                                         1 large bag milk choc. chips

                                  1 cup chopped walnuts nuts
preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', '___________________________________________________________________________')

*Mix, bring to boil, boil for 3 minutes

Line pan (jelly roll pan) with foil turn up edges of foil so the liquid will not get in the pan.
Place a layer of club crackers on the non-stick foil. Pour sugar/ butter mixture over crackers, spread evenly.

Bake @ 400 degrees for 5 minutes or until crackers float.

Take out of oven and sprinkle the whole bag of chocolate chips over crackers.

Let melt then spread evenly. Sprinkle w/ one cup chopped nuts. Press the nuts lightly into the chocolate so they will stick.

Score while still warm, then refrigerate (for about 2 hours).

Yum! Delicious sounding peoples! And Krinil, nice variation.

Well, um, I stuck with my good old banana bread, which really isn't bread, but a cake.

1 cup of sugar
1 cup of margarine
1 1/2 cups of flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 to 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 cup of crushed ripe bananas
1 teaspoon of lime juice
Crushed Peanuts or Granola
2 eggs
1 to 2 teaspoons of vanilla

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add lime juice to bananas, and add to creamed mixture.

Sift flour, and add baking powder, salt, and cinnamon to flour.

Add little by little and fold dry mixture into creamed until all is incorprated. Add nuts or granola.

Grease baking tin and preset oven to 350 degrees.

Bake for one hour and 20 minutes! Yum! ^^

Gwah! Oh no! Sorry! It IS February isn't it?

I must apologize, I didn't do the January craftalong...I was extremely busy what with worrying about exams, studying madly for exams, then writing exams...sorry...Just imagine something really sweet and chocolatey from me, cause that's probably what I would have made. I'll come out strong in February, don't worry about that (actually, you should worry, I am the queen of procrastination...).
