Peanut Butter Bananas Foster Cheesecake (with Do-Si-Do Crust!)

I just can’t even with this disgustingly beautiful creation…

A Do-Si-Do Girl Scout cookie base, a peanut butter & banana cheesecake filling, and a bananas foster doesn't get any better than this folks! | #recipeIt’s that time of  the year where I end up with like 10 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, and I try to come up with creative ways to use them all. Last year, I made Samoa Blizzards and Thin Min Ice Cream—both fantastic, by the way. Girl Scout cookies bring out the best in my culinary ideas, I guess!

I feel like the Do-Si-Do is one of the most neglected Girl Scout Cookies, and I just don’t get it! They’re salty, peanut buttery, and crumbly in a fantastic way. I kinda think they’re basically like a fully peanut butter version of an Oreo.

How gorgeous would this look on your Easter brunch table? The answer is very. It would look very gorgeous.

Too Easy: Homemade Vegetable Stock

This is a great fridge clean-out recipe! It's totally vegan, and so much more flavorful than the stuff at the store. You won't believe how much better your recipes taste with this! | #recipe

This isn’t a recipe that looks pretty, or cool, but it’s a necessity! It’s always good to have stock around, and it’s even better if it’s homemade! I’m super fond of my homemade chicken stock recipe, but sometimes that just doesn’t work in all scenarios. This is an awesome, totally vegan, totally delicious stock recipe

Too Easy: The BEST Moscow Mule

So stupid simple, but it really is the tastiest Moscow Mule I've ever tried---only 2 ingredients and it's spicy and not overly sweet! | #recipe

But fo realz… Okay, this “Too Easy” is even more of a ridiculous recipe than the last one, in that that it is literally 2 ingredients (at the most three). BUT! It’s booze, and it’s a Friday, and we could all use a cocktail that both goes down easily, and is stupid simple to make.

Welp, it’s official… This is the best chocolate sheet cake in existence. Okay, so I haven’t tried all the chocolate sheet cakes that have ever been created, but I’m fairly certain this would be in the top 3. Plus, there’s beer in it…how can you go wrong there? Oh, and cue the influx of Guinness-related
