Valhalla Sandwiches – Poetry In Motion

While inspired by a sea of hunger
Patiently craving this slumbering soul
The mind beseeches creatively
The other side of my hungered whole
This path to Valhalla is born out of verse
Conveying me visions that sound like a curse

Its poetry in motion in an archaic sense
When a morsel of brie slips through like a wench
From the crevasse of your tongue when the chocolate smolders
Beware of the crumbs this journey through boulders

To find what you seek and to seek what you find
Are two very different paths of two very different kinds
In an honest to thought, if food is your heaven
To appeal to this piece is left to your discretion

Valhallla Sandwiches

Chocolate Coconut Log –

This one is the only surviving dessert recipe handed down to me from my mom, mainly because it’s the only dessert she ever made.

I think this is the easiest yummiest Chocolate Coconut Log I have ever eaten, they are simple and can be incorporated into a wonderful Coconut Truffle’s,  just roll them up into smaller round one inch shaped balls, next freeze them for four to six hours before dipping them into some melted baking chocolate then refreeze and Voila! you now have truffles.

*Remember chocolate sticks to glassware so use a baking sheet, butter paper or silver foil before placing the chocolate dipped Coconut Truffles onto a plate.

Cinnamon Cheesecake Bundles

Cheesecake Bundle

I like to give myself a pat on the back every time I make these cinnamon bundles. They are so easy to whip up and Oh My God so delish.

Nothing feels better than when the family says WoW after the first bite and then wipes the tray clean. I cook and create only for these simple pleasures.

Do I feel awesome after a great meal laid on the table? Hell yeah! Right until, I realize it is time to do the dishes.

Ingredients

1 box Pillsbury Crescent rolls

Filling

–         8 oz of Philadelphia cream cheese

–         ½ cup of sugar

–         3-4 tbsp of vanilla essence

Topping

–         Cinnamon Powder

–         1/3 cup butter + 3/4th cup sugar melted

–         1 tbsp vanilla essence

Method

Mould singular wedges of dough into a square shape using only your fingers by stretching the dough gently. I like to place them behind cupcake tins; this prevents tearing and allows them to stretch gently.

In a mixing bowl, blend the cream cheese sugar and vanilla. Spoon filling into dough squares and join the four corners creating a pocket. Place dough pockets onto a greased non-stick pan. (I like to use foil or parchment paper).

Blend all the ingredients for the topping and coat each dough pocket with a generous helping.

Bake in the oven at 350 – for 20 – 25 min. Serve HOT.

Love the aroma of sweet cinnamon floating around my house – especially when it is coming out of my own oven.
