The other day I happened upon an ice cream sandwich cake on the internet. It looked so good and tempting. I don’t know why, but it just had my name written all over it. Maybe it has something to do with the bloodmoon, or pms, or maybe the odd warm weather…. whatever the reason…. I wanted it.

46253_Premios Badges-FINAL3As I examined the chocolate sauce dripping down the sides of the cake (my current obsession), I thought to myself  “I bet that would be heavenly with cajeta, and neapolitan ice cream sandwiches instead.” In that instant all the pieces came together. This coming Thursday (April 24th), I will be hosting a #Billboards2014 party here in my home with my #Framily on behalf of Sprint, and a cajeta neapolitan ice cream sandwich cake would be the perfect dessert for us. Plus the ice cream sandwich is sort-of  in the same shape as the new Samsung Galaxy 5S, and guess what? Sprint is giving me the new phone to give to one of the members of my #Framily. Oh it’s gonna be a fun night.  We plan on watching the awards, playing games, snacking, and eating cajeta neapolitan ice cream sandwich cake.  Don’t forget to follow the conversation on both instagram and twitter…. we will be using the #Framily and #Billboards2014 hashtags!

BBAH  Sandwich (Bacon Brie Apple Honey)

BBAH Sandwich (Bacon Brie Apple Honey)

Mmmmmm. That’s the sound that slips my lips when a scrumptious sandwich as mouthwatering as this one is set before me.  Let me rewind a little.  I was in Vegas for the Blogalicious conference, thanks to my awesome sponsor Sprint.  It was a great deal of fun.  I learned so much and was inspired to run back home and start posting.  I also made a ton of new friends and danced my ass off at a few late night parties and do I really need to explain, we’re talking Vegas here.  Long weekend short, once Sunday arrived I needed something greasy but with a touch of sweet and a light crispy crunch in my belly, something to soak up a weekend in Vegas.  Bacon and apple…. add some brie and a dash of honey and you’ve got the winning hand.

Ingredients for BBAH Sandwich:

2 – slices of french bread

2 to 3 – slices of granny smith apple

3 – slices of brie cheese

1 – tablespoon of honey

4 – slices of cooked bacon


Take a slice of french bread and top with apples slices.  The arrange the bries slices on top of apple.  Drizzle the brie with honey.  Top the honey brie with bacon slices.  Place the other slice of french bread on top and you have got your self a seriously delicious sandwich!

Pistachio Cream Fig Tart, Sprint and Blogalicious!

Pistachio Cream Fig Tart, Sprint and Blogalicious!

Do you ever wake up inspired?  Just itching to expand?  Wanting to get yourself in the kitchen, experiment and get dirty?  I was having one of those days.  It usually comes when I want something sweet.  The air was perfect, the sun was shining through the window, I was playing my favorite music, completely focused on the tart at hand with good vibes all around me.  I had all the ingredients in the house for a fig tart and I was making it happen.  I could hear my phone making a faint sound from the other room, and something told me to check it.  I wiped my hands down and scrolled through my phone.  It was an email from Latina Bloggers Connect sending me the AWESOME news that Sprint had chosen me as one of the ambassadors for a sponsorship to Blogalicious in VEGAS!  Jumping up and down, excited and acting like a clown,  I ran back to the kitchen popped my pistachio cream fig tart in the oven and waited for it to be ready.  I hit the jackpot twice, not only was I going to Blogalicious, I was going to have my fig tart to celebrate too.  (In Oprah voice) Thank You Sprint!

Ingredients for Pistachio Cream Fig Tart:

1 – 17.3 ounce package of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry (2 sheets)

3/4 – cup salted pistachios

1 – cup powdered sugar

1 – teaspoon almond extract

1 – 8 oz package of cream cheese (room temperature)

6 – tablespoons of fig jam

20 – black mission figs (sliced in half)

1 – egg

1 – tablespoon of water

This recipe makes 2 tarts

Bring puff pastry to room temperature.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.

In a food processors combine pistachios and powdered sugar.  Pulse until the pistachios are a fine crumb.  Then add in almond extract and cream cheese.  Pulse until all is evenly combined. Remove from food processor and set in a bowl to the side.

Lay one puff pastry sheet on a lined cookie sheet, and spread with 3 tablespoons of fig jam. Make sure to leave a 1 inch frame all along the edges.

Then take a teaspoon of the pistachio cream and drop it in a dollop then take another until you have 10 dollops in a row.  Top each with a half of fig.

In a little bowl make an egg wash by mixing egg and water together.  Then brush edges of pastry with the egg wash.

Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes.

While your first tart is baking, prepare the next one with the rest of the ingredients.  Or you could cut the other sheet in half and make two small ones.  I ended up doing this for a total of 3 tarts. One large one and two small ones.  🙂 Same baking time.

Here’s a picture of a small one before it went in the oven, and instead of dollops of cream, I spread it even.
