Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

These mini cheesecakes are delectable and oh so cute!




I love spoiling people and I usually do that with food. Whether it's bringing goodies for the teachers/secretaries at school, or bringing in treats for staff and co workers, I love feeding people. I made these cheesecakes to treat my co workers during a particularly stressful time. Everyone enjoyed the much needed boost and reminder that they are awesome. 




I am totally IN LOVE with my Pampered Chef Brownie Pan!!! I've been baking just about anything in them. I thought it would be cute and fun to make little mini cheesecakes in them; so that's what I did! I made up a simple cheesecake batter, used graham crackers as the crust (if using a muffin tin, feel free to use Oreo Cookies, or Nilla Wafers as the crust) and topped everything with a chocolate ganache. A-MA-ZING!!! All my co workers raved about the cheesecakes. Nothing like some decadent cheesecake, to ease a stressful work day!

Bake for 15-20 minutes; until cheesecake is firm, but still slightly wiggly in center. Cool completely.


In a small sauce pot, over med-low heat, melt the milk chocolate with the condensed milk; until smooth. Generously spread ganache on top pf cooled cheesecakes and spread evenly and sprinkle with remaining mini chocolate chips. Refrigerate until serving.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown
