This is for those times you urgently need a brownie, but don’t want to make – or, rather, can’t justify making – a whole batch.
Faith’s Bourbon Glazed Peaches on the Grill
Summer is the time for grilling and peaches! This easy dessert is great with a dry pink sparkling rose, such as an inexpensive Segura Viudas.
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil Cake
This light olive oil cake can be served alone or accompanied by pears poached in red wine or brandy-soaked cherries or prunes, but the success of the cake depends on using a top-quality olive oil.
Nature’s Grocer: Boozy Rum Caramel Doughnut with Walnuts “The Faith Doughnut”
Kelly and David Boudreaux call for a Nature’s Grocer Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free Plain Doughnut to serve as the base, but you can use your favorite gluten-free doughnut mix (or any doughnut mix) if you’re inclined to bake these at home. A cake-style doughnut will best absorb the rum (you could poke a few holes in the doughnut with a toothpick, like you would for a pound cake glaze). Add coconut flakes over the caramel sauce, if you like (it is dessert, right? ). Feel free to “doctor-up” your “Faith Doughnut” any way you like.
Brain Food: Peanut Butter Power Bites
This is a healthy take on the no-bake cookie. So good and so good for you. Every time I make these peanut butter power bites, I am begged for the recipe. They are a hit with both kids and adults, and always disappear quickly.
Kentucky Bourbon Balls
My version of the candy classic tastes just enough of delicious bourbon without it feeling like you’ve done a shot when you pop it in your mouth. A little sorghum syrup brings out the earthiness of the pecans and bourbon. For a true indulgence, I like to dip these in milk chocolate, but you can use bittersweet for a more sophisticated edge, or a combo of both.
