Chocolate Brownie CupcakesPeanut Butter Brownie Sundaes in a Cone

Brownie Ice Cream conesOne of our readers wrote and asked if the peanut butter brownie cupcake recipe could be baked in an ice cream cone. Very nice idea. So we whipped up a batch. Worked perfectly. We think this would be a great idea for a birthday party or for the kids at the next family reunion. And this is such an easy recipe, you can whip up a batch of cones in no time.

Note: This recipe can be doubled.

2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
peanut butter
flat-bottomed ice cream cones
ice cream
cake decorations

Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream conesWrap a dozen ice cream cone cups in aluminum foil and place them in a muffin tin. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

1. In a medium bowl, melt the chocolate and butter together in the microwave, stirring as needed.
2. Stir the sugar into the chocolate mixture. Stir the eggs and vanilla into the mixture. Stir in the flour.
3. Fill the ice cream cone cups about three fourths full of batter. Put a teaspoon of peanut butter in the center of each.
4. Bake for 20 to 24 minutes depending on the size of the cone. A toothpick should still have gooey crumbs on it if tested.
5. When completely cooled, put a scoop of ice cream in the tops of the cups. Sprinkle the ice cream with cake decorations of your choice.

How many knew that cooked radishes are a substitute for potatoes? When cooked there appearance, and taste changes, and they are quite good.

Braised Radishes Recipe
Serves 6

2 bunches radishes (about 1 pound), preferably icicle, tops trimmed to 1 inch above roots
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons sugar (use SugarTwin for low carb, try the Brown)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Place the radishes in a large skillet and add just enough cold water to cover, about 2 1/2 cups. Add the butter, sugar, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the radishes are tender when pricked with a paring knife and the liquid has reduced to a glaze, about 12 minutes.
If the radishes are tender but the liquid hasn't reduced sufficiently, use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a serving dish and continue reducing the liquid. Spoon it over the radishes and serve with buttered crusty bread.

Ditto and Little One both are glad the cold spell has passed. the cold spell wasn't as cold as many are dealing with but to my spoiled kitties it was cold. Ditto and Little One love to spend time in the garage but when it is cold they avoid the cold floor of the garage. Don't think they will ever like the outside elements again. Both kitties were outdoor cats before they adopted me. Now they refuse to get near the door for any reason.

Little One spends almost all of the day beside me when I am home. I tend to listen to audible books, radio or oldies music as I work on the computer. Little One likes me to turn on my cell phone and listen to books or music. His favorite place is to sleep on top of my phone as it is playing. Today I was listening to 1950s music when, "How Much is that Doggy in the Window" came on my cell phone. When the song got to the arf arf. Little One jumps up and starts looking for a dog all over the desk. He even looked under the desk. He never ceases to make me laugh.

Ditto is the only cat I know of that throws a fit when I turn off Glenn Beck. If Ditto gets upset or mad at Little One I can quickly calm him down by turning on Glenn Beck on the radio for him to listen. Luckily I have internet radio on my ipod. I can tune in Glenn Beck most anytime using TuneIn Radio app on my iPod. He calms down right away until I try turn it off. Then he throws a fit. Probably have the only cat in the world that is addicted to Glenn Beck.
Both cats are spoiled have really weird ideas about things.

My submitting the recipe for Penuche No Bake Cookies reminded me of this recipe. It appeared in a may 2011 newsletter. It would make a great Valentine's Day gift. Thanks Betty for sharing it.

Penuche Fudge Recipe

4 cups packed brown sugar
1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup of evaporated milk (not condensed)
2 cups walnuts, chopped
1 tsp vanilla

Spray a 9 x 9 or 8 x 8 inch pan and set aside. Put some ice in a bowl of water to test your candy if you do it this way to have ready for when the candy is around the right temperature. Turn it off while you test it so it won't overheat.

Bring the brown sugar, butter and milk to a boil, keep stirring and cook until it reaches 234 degrees or makes a soft ball in ice water. I do both because I don't trust my thermometer. I always wash down the sides of the pan while it's cooking so the fudge won't get sugary. You can also cover the saucepan briefly when it's boiling so the steam will dissolve the sugar on the sides of the pan.

Let it cool without stirring until it reaches 110 degrees. Then add vanilla and chopped walnuts to your hearts content. Beat until it looses it's glossy appearance and gets thick. It will be thick anyway but it still needs to be stirred. Pour it into the pan and let it set up. Don't scrape the sides.

When baking with dried fruit, the fruit can be placed in a steamer,cover, bring water to a boil. Turn heat off and allow to set 3-4 minutes. If you want them softer,allow to set covered longer. When ready to use remove from steamer and if using in bread maker, I allow to cool before adding.
