Happy Thanksgiving week, dear readers! Do you have any special plans for the days leading up to and for the holiday? Do you travel? Do you spend it with family/friends? Do you have a nice quiet celebration at home? What do you do??

My family alternates between Boston and Texas every year and this year we’re in Texas. I’m hoping to start baking as early as tomorrow (thank goodness for cheesecakes which can be made ahead of time!), but we’ll see – I don’t have any of the groceries yet. :/

I do hope that no matter where and how you are celebrating, and who you are celebrating with, that this holiday will bring much joy and times of grateful musings – even in the midst of possible pain and sadness.

There is always so much to think about, so many things that need to be done, and time seems to quickly be running out. There are times of sadness and anxiety; times when life seems to be nothing but a nightmare and you wonder why you’re even here. However, even in the midst of such times, you can look up and see a gorgeous sunset or sunrise, experience the joy of a sudden breeze, watch the snow fall and the earth become quiet and still, and all of a sudden joy and light creeps into even the darkest of places. You become full of gratitude, and thankful that you should be granted such a gift.

My mom picked up the children’s picture book (sometimes I think these books are written more for the adults, don’t you?), Penguin Problems by Jory John some days ago and brought it over for me to look at – we both ♥ children’s picture books – and I fell in love. Not only is it a cute and humorous story full of lovely illustrations, but it also contains this quote which I think speaks to what I’ve been talking about. It is delivered by a walrus who is speaking to the main character, a penguin, who goes about the day complaining about this and that.

“Good afternoon. I sense that today has been difficult, but lo! Look around you, Penguin. Have you noticed the way the mountains are reflected in the ocean like a painting? Have you gazed upon the blue of the cloudless, winter sky, my friend? Have you felt the sun as it gently warms your back? Have you simply stood with your penguin brothers and sisters and elders, who adore you?

Yes, some things are challenging out here. Yes, we all have difficult moments, from the walruses to the polar bears, from the whales to the penguins. But hear me now, my new friend: I wouldn’t trade my life for any other, and I am quite sure you wouldn’t, either. I am certain that when you think about it, you’ll realize that you are exactly where you need to be.”

I think that about says it all right there! Sometimes we need to stop and look around and see the joys and beauty about us. And occasionally it can be a little hard to make out, but it’s there. It’s there.

OK, moving off my Thanksgiving clichés (bless you if you’ve made it this far!) and onto these sour cream pancakes! My older brother is the pancake/waffle maker in the family and has been making them on Sundays for yeeears now. So it’s only natural that he be the one to introduce me to these pancakes, which have become a personal favorite.

These sour cream pancakes are not too thin and not super thick either. They are the perfect middle ground and the flavor is outstanding. They are a richer pancake and out of this world with chocolate chips (I’m drooling over here…).

Did I mention they melt in your mouth?

It is a pancake of many qualities.

I’ve been wanting to share this recipe for a while now and am super happy to share this version perfect for fall mornings (or evenings – I’m a believer in breakfast for dinner). What I did was made the original recipe (with a couple of tweaks) and added some nutmeg to complement the apple topping. The apple topping is actually the filling I use in these apple hand pies and I love it as it can double as a topping (my sister just made it as a topping for pound cake) and is so perfect for fall.

Now an important thing to note is that if you are making these for 6 or less people, half the pancake recipe. It makes enough to feed a small army, which is perfect if you have visiting guests.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars with Marshmallow-Sour Cream Topping

| by | Bars, Cheesecakes, Desserts, Recipes, Seasonal

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars with Marshmallow-Sour Cream Topping: These pumpkin cheesecake bars start with a flavorful gingersnap crust and in the middle feature a luscious pumpkin filling. To finish, the cheesecake is topped with a deliciously tangy marshmallow-sour cream topping. Perfect for the upcoming holidays!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares with Marshmallow-Sour Cream Topping | sempre-dolce.com“People who love to eat are always the best people.” ~ Julia Child

One of the most used quotes by foodies, but truly one of the best. When I first read it, it was a YES! moment, because no words could speak more to the heart of a person who loves food. :)

I mean, for me, people who enjoy food to the measure my family and I do are seriously fun people to be around; the kind of people who enjoy the delicacies of eating pastry, the people who say you should try x bakery/restaurant and you know it’s going to be good. Also, the people that when traveling know the trip doesn’t just revolve around seeing the sites, but also checking out the local eats.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares with Marshmallow-Sour Cream Topping | sempre-dolce.com

Food is a powerful thing and can break many a bond. Why a conversation could get started just by someone asking for a recipe; a friendship could be formed over a mutual love of waffles or, you name it. Food can give us something to talk about when other words fail; food can comfort and bring joy. Food is a wonderful thing, people.

Anyway, so I’m assuming that if you’re here, you might perhaps love food too. Great, because I love sharing recipes with you, and it gives me great joy to experiment around that I might bring tasty treats to this blog. No recipe ever gets posted on here unless it brings me personal excitement to do so. That said, there is the occasional recipe that excites me beyond all excitement. A recipe that has me wanting to tell the whole world how awesome it is and wanting e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e. to try it. That’s how it was (and still is) with this pumpkin cheesecake from Epicurious. I don’t know what possessed me to try it a few years back – I don’t even like cold pumpkin desserts (sorry pumpkin pie lovers)! – but I did, and it was love at first bite.

The combination of the gingersnap/pecan crust with the flavor of the crystallized ginger shooting through every bite, paired with the flavor and texture of the cheesecake itself (not to mention the marshmallow sour cream topping…) is absolutely killer. Guys, for the first time in my life I was passing the chocolate cheesecake up for this – and if you knew me (#chocolateobsessed) you would know what that means and the volumes it speaks for this cheesecake.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares with Marshmallow-Sour Cream Topping | sempre-dolce.com

You need this pumpkin cheesecake in your life, your family/friends need it as well. And for the pumpkin pie adverse readers who think this dessert falls in that same category, I hear you. I truly do. I’ve never liked pumpkin pie, still don’t, and never will. But for some reason this cheesecake is different, it has magic powers or something.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares with Marshmallow-Sour Cream Topping | sempre-dolce.com

I was going to originally post the recipe as is from Epicurious but then decided to try making it in bar form. If you will be making this to take to a gathering, I might suggest making it this way. It’s easier to present (no trying to figure out how on earth I’m going to get that whole thing from the pan to a serving plate) and might be easier for people to carry around and eat. Also, what’s awesome about making cheesecakes for gatherings is that they can be made up to two days in advance (just wait to make the topping until the day you serve it) and actually taste even better the longer they chill.

Well, there it is; my rhapsody of love on a theme of pumpkin cheesecake. I hope you get to make it and then experience the luscious joys of consumption!

The Best Chocolate Baked Doughnuts

| by | Breakfast, Doughnuts

The Best Chocolate Baked Doughnuts: These baked chocolate doughnuts are easy to make and so decadently delicious. Studded with chocolate chips inside and full of chocolate flavor, you won’t miss the fryer for these!

The Best Chocolate Baked Doughnuts | sempre-dolce.com

Do you ever get those cravings that hit full force and won’t let go until satisfied?

Uh-huh, you know what I’m talking about. The thing which makes a person tell every poor soul around that they feel like _____ for days, weeks (maybe even months!) on end until the glorious moment when they finally get it. I had been dealing with one of these cravings until it was finally put to rest yesterday. For weeks I had this craving for a sour cream doughnut, and even more specifically, a sour cream doughnut from Krispy Kreme. So yesterday I finally had enough.

The Best Chocolate Baked Doughnuts | sempre-dolce.com

Sometimes on Sunday after church, we as a family like to occasionally to treat ourselves to some goodies from our favorite bakery in Dallas or maybe to some doughnuts from Top Pot. Yesterday was one of those days and the favored choice going around the car was the bakery. But me? I wanted a doughnut, I wanted Top Pot. I don’t know why, but sometimes I would happily pass on a Kouign Amann (seriously??) for the simple pleasure of a doughnut. I don’t know why – maybe it’s like the difference between classical and easy listening music; one is a more involved experience that requires most, if not all of a person’s attention to hear and process the beauties within, while the other requires very little thought and attention and is thus turned to in times when heavy brain involvement is not desired.

The Best Chocolate Baked Doughnuts | sempre-dolce.com

Or maybe it’s like comfort food; that occasional desire for chicken pot pie, pizza, macaroni etc. as opposed to the more refined meal.

Whatever the reason, I wanted a doughnut. And even when the decision for the bakery was made, I was still determined to get my doughnut. So I did. After picking up some croissants and kouign amann, we went to Krispy Kreme and I finally got my long desired sour cream doughnut. I am satisfied. (However, Landon has been dealing with cravings involving a special In n Out burger and I have a feeling we won’t hear the end of it until he gets one. Patience, Landon, patience.)

The Best Chocolate Baked Doughnuts | sempre-dolce.com

I don’t know what cravings you might have right now, but I sure hope doughnuts are in there somewhere, because today I have for you a baked doughnut recipe to end all baked doughnut recipes. I’ve talked before about my thoughts on doughnuts and fried vs baked and how fried is usually better for the authentic doughnut experience, but sometimes there are recipes that will not leave you missing the fried ones. This is one of them.

The Best Chocolate Baked Doughnuts | sempre-dolce.com

This is a recipe my brother Parker has been making for years and it’s always a special treat when he does. Oh my goodness, they are the best home-baked chocolate doughnuts I’ve ever had. They are so perfectly chocolaty and melt-in-your-mouth. Some doughnut recipes can taste fudgy (which, depending on the recipe, can be good or bad) but these have just the right chocolate flavor. They also have a good texture as they’re not (sorry to use this word again) too fudgy and also not dry.

The Best Chocolate Baked Doughnuts | sempre-dolce.com

Unfortunately, I’m not doing this recipe any justice in my description – I’m finding it very hard to explain why these are so so darn good! So all I can do is to strongly urge you to make them for yourself and taste the awesomeness. Make them and see why my family raves about and begs for these doughnuts.

Ingredients

    Doughnuts:
  • 2 1/2 C. all-purpose flour
  • 1 C. packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 C. granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp. espresso powder or instant coffee granules.
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 C. buttermilk (or regular milk)
  • 1 C. (2 sticks) butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 (12 oz) bag mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Glaze:
  • 4 C. powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 - 1/3 C. milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Generously spray a doughnut pan with cooking spray, set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, sugar, espresso powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in center of flour mixture, set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla.
  5. Add wet ingredients to flour mixture, stirring until smooth.(Some folding may be required to incorporate all the flour mixture.)
  6. Stir in chocolate chips.
  7. Spoon batter into pans, filling cavities about ¾ full (please see note below if you haven’t already!).
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until tops spring back when lightly touched or toothpick comes out with moist crumbs attached when inserted.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 5 minutes.
  10. Invert doughnuts onto a cooling rack and let cool almost completely before glazing. During this time you can go ahead and re-spray pan and bake more doughnuts.
  11. For the glaze:
  12. In a medium bowl, combine first 3 ingredients.
  13. Add milk, whisking to combine (start with ¼ C. and add a little more if glaze is too thick).
  14. Place wax or parchment paper under rack/s with doughnuts.
  15. Spread glaze generously over doughnut tops, or dip if making mini doughnuts(if desired, top with sprinkles). Let stand a few minutes to allow glaze to set before serving.
  16. Yields: 15 doughnuts

Notes

For mini doughnuts, I would recommend halving the recipe - unless you need more than 36 doughnuts (the recipe as is would yield about 70+). :)

For a mini doughnut pan, fill cavities ½ full instead of ¾. Bake for 6-8 minutes.

These doughnuts are pretty versatile topping-wise. I haven’t tried any of these options personally, but I think some of these glazes/toppings would be fun to play around with:

For a fall theme, try a pumpkin or maple glaze.

For Christmas, maybe a chocolate peppermint glaze with crushed peppermints on top?

A ganache topping would be tasty!

A plain powdered sugar coating would be fun as well.

Feel free to experiment around!

Bacon Cheddar 7-Up Biscuits

| by | Breads, Recipes, Savory

Biscuits. Bacon. Cheddar.

Biscuits + Bacon + Cheddar = ??

Bacon Cheddar 7-Up Biscuits | Sempre Dolce

The answer is one awesome biscuit.

Or 12.

Bacon Cheddar 7-Up Biscuits | Sempre Dolce

Have you tried 7-up biscuits before? So southern, I know. But in all seriousness, if you haven’t tried them, you totally should! They are very easy to make – it doesn’t get much simpler than Bisquick + 5 ingredients – and only too delicious. They have become a family favorite over the past few years and are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven with a bowl of soup; comfort food at its best.

Bacon Cheddar 7-Up Biscuits | Sempre Dolce Bacon Cheddar 7-Up Biscuits | Sempre Dolce

There are already hundreds of 7-up biscuit recipes available (just google 7-up biscuits), so instead of adding another to the mix, I decided to give you a beefed (or should I say baconed?) up version. What I did was simply used my favorite 7-Up biscuit recipe and added crispy bits of bacon along with some shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Now, if you were so inclined, I can only imagine how delectable these would be with some caramelized onions – yummm.   Oh! Oh! And maybe, just maybe, sandwich an egg and some cheese (maybe some spinach or arugula too) in between for a killer breakfast sandwich. Ah, the possibilities – I love possibilities.

Bacon Cheddar 7-Up Biscuits | Sempre Dolce

These can be made for any occasion and meal you desire: breakfast, dinner, as a side for soup, chicken pot pie; holiday meals (hello? Thanksgiving!), you name it. Or, you could do what I contemplated doing the other day, which would be to um, just make them,  ahem, as a snack… (hey, I had leftover ingredients, ok?)

Bacon Cheddar 7-Up Biscuits | Sempre Dolce

Any which way, you can’t go wrong with these biscuits. I mean, can you ever go wrong with bacon??  Not to mention bacon stuffed inside a fluffy, buttery biscuit along with cheddar cheese. Come on, you can’t. You just can’t.

Bacon Cheddar 7-Up Biscuits: soft, tender, buttery biscuits filled with bacon and sharp cheddar cheese are sure to be the highlight of any meal.

Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 4 C. buttermilk baking mix (such as Bisquick)
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 C. sour cream
  • 1 (7 oz) can lemon-lime soda (I usually use 7-Up)
  • 1 (heaping) C. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 C. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2. Place bacon (spacing about an inch or more apart) on baking baking sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until crispy.
  3. Remove from oven and set aside to cool, reserving 1 tsp. of the bacon grease (this is optional - see directions further down).
  4. Take another (rimmed) baking sheet and lightly spray with cooking spray.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the baking mix, sugar, and baking powder.
  6. Add sour cream and stir to combine.
  7. Add lemon-lime soda, a little at a time, until it forms a shaggy dough - most likely you won’t use the whole can of soda.
  8. Dice bacon and add to the dough along with the shredded cheese. Fold to combine.
  9. Turn onto a surface sprinkled with some of the baking mix (or flour) and gently pat dough into a ½ in. thick round (see note below!). The dough will be fairly wet, so what I do is sprinkle some baking mix onto the dough before I pat it out.
  10. Using a 3 in. round cookie/biscuit cutter (or a glass dipped in flour), cut out biscuits, placing on greased baking sheet. Place biscuits sides touching for soft biscuits, or about 1 in. apart for crispier edges.
  11. In a small microwave safe bowl, place butter and microwave until melted. Add in the 1 tsp. reserved bacon grease, whisking with a small whisk to combine (the bacon grease is optional - you can just do plain butter if you like :).
  12. Brush or drizzle the melted butter over the biscuit tops.
  13. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until firm and light golden brown.
  14. Remove from oven and place pan on a cooling rack to cool.
  15. These are best eaten while still warm. :)

Notes

For really thick biscuits, pat dough into a 1 in. thick round instead of 1/2 in. thick. An IMPORTANT thing to note though, is that if you do that, the recipe will yield HALF the amount of biscuits (you would get about 6 instead of 12).
