I’m not sure how many were missing me, but I’ve been ill with these dreadful allergies and then turned into sinus infection then that turned into laryngitis! Some people probably didn’t mind me not being able to talk….but I didn’t like it at ALL!!
Okay, and wouldn’t ya know it, when I first became sick, the Real Women of Philadelphia (Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese/Cooking Creme) Season 2 – Phase 1 (Video/Hosting) Contest started and I didn’t have enough energy to even think about coming up with a recipe, not to mention a video!! And, without a voice, it was going to be pretty tough to do my video and there wasnt’ anything in the rules that I could use an interpreter!!?
So, I waited until I had both energy and voice and I did 2 recipe videos – for Dessert week using Philly Cream Cheese. So, here are the videos I completed AND their recipes.
Let me start off by stating that I LOVE the Cupcake Wars program and got a great idea from there about doing a cookie topping on a cupcake/muffin. I came up with Oatmeal Cookie-Topped Sweet Potato Muffins with Creamy Caramel Frosting. There is Philadelphia cream cheese in both the muffin AND the frosting. A double dose!
And the 2nd recipe, I thought of a strawberry upside-down cake but it would take too long and there is a 1 hour total time limit. So, I created Strawberry-Pecan Upside Down Mini Cakes using 6oz. ramekins. Individual little cakes are wonderful and so very good for any occasion.
The recipes follow the videos. Enjoy!
The contest is continuing, so I’ll be doing more videos. This week is Appetizer week, so I’ve got some ideas!
