Thursday Thoughts

 

It's one of those weeks where all I can think about is dessert. It's one of those weeks where it's been a constant juggle between everything academic to extracurriculars to socializing.. and the list goes on and on and on and on and on...... 

Over the past few days, I've consumed quite a good amount of sweet stuff- including local Ithacan made caramel ice pops, chocolate soufflé in culinary lab, to cheesecake at Cornell's Establishment student-run restaurant. 

Below I've posted a few recipes from bloggers around the world who share their mouth-watering desserts. Trust me when I say that late-night web browsing of chocolate recipes while sipping my good cup of ol' joe #nationalcoffeeday really opened my eyes to the wonders of dessert in this world. I've tried a few, haven't tried a few, but hey, if you try something, let me know. You can always email me at nikita@nikitaskitchen.com if you've got any questions, comments, or just want to talk foody with me. 

Here it goes.... I know for a fact that after this, you'll be more than ready to grab your baking supplies and head off to sweet heaven. 

 Image from Love, Cake  Turns out as I was searching for ice-pop variations to try at home, I landed on my old co-workers site from when I was interning with Martha Stewart back in 2013. Definitely try out these  Chocolate Cream Pie Pops  and if you're daring and want to try an avocado version, check out  Avocado Ice Pops . For those in Ithaca, NY visit  Celia's Ice Pops  and try the Cajeta, the perfect blend of goat milk and caramel.
