Can You Say "Grilled Cheese Benedict?"

(Clockwise from top: grilled cheese benedict, bananas foster french toast, strawberry rhubarb pancakes)
Brunch is a thing of the gods. Okay, definitely not the wait, maybe not the price, but the food is always heavenly. Bacon & Butter in Sacramento has a grilled cheese benedict that is otherworldly, even though I'm not a huge fan of runny yolks (what?!?! But all that #yolkporn everywhere! I love watching those vids, but eating the yolks are meh). Their bananas foster french toast is also awe-inspiring (would have never thought to sprinkle granola on top but it works. Man, it works).

14 Mind-blowing Dessert Lasagnas!
I guess these people never got the memo about lasagna being a dinner food – and oh man, am I glad they didn't. These innovative kitchen wizards have turned a saucy Italian cheesefest into a gourmet dessert. This is a food trend that I have NO doubt we'll be seeing soon on upscale dessert menus around the world. It's hip, it's totally different, and it's just the right amount of weird to tickle the imagination. See what you think – which one of these fantastical desserts would you most like to try? (I've tried to give credit where credit is due. All the recipes are linked below; just click on the word "Recipe." Photos belong to respective owners.) :) Chocolate Lasagna Brownies, chocolate pudding, and Oreos – oh my! Add some whipped cream, and you've got a lasagna. (I never, ever thought I would EVER say that sentence.) Recipe by Rachel Schultz, A Household Almanac Apple Pie Lasagna Let me be clear: this is not your grandmother's apple pie. Oh sure, it's got apples, cinnamon, and sugar – but it's also got caramel cream cheese filling, Heath bar toffee bites, and a touch of maple syrup. I have only one word: WANT. Recipe by Beyond Frosting Pumpkin Pie Dessert Lasagna I don't know if they necessarily needed to specify that this was a "dessert lasagna" – I think that's pretty clear from the whole "pumpkin pie" part. But I digress. We're talking pumpkin, Cool Whip, pumpkin spice chips (which exist, apparently!?) and chopped pecans. It might be 91 degrees out today, but suddenly I'm feeling a little autumnal! Recipe by The Cookie Rookie, inspired by Beyond Frosting (who is apparently our dessert lasagna MVP!) S'mores Lasagna And speaking of Beyond Frosting, she's also responsible for this dare-I-say GORGEOUS creation topped with gooey toasted marshmallows. S'mores Lasagna may be an improvement on the already impossibly wonderful campfire dessert, because it's got two types of graham cracker (original AND chocolate), marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, and – for the mess-haters among us – you can eat it with a fork. Recipe by Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting (the dessert lasagna goddess herself. soon we'll all be wearing t-shirts with her face on it.) Brownie Brittle Strawberry Lasagna Before we get too carried away in our decadence, Julianne (yep, we're on a first name basis now) has whipped up a lighter version of dessert lasagna featuring a cheesecake filling, dark chocolate pudding, and plenty of strawberries. See? It's got fruit! It's obviously healthy. Yet again, recipe by my idol, Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting Nutella Cheesecake Lasagna Okay, so maybe the photography skills are a little lacking on this one, but the concept is so flawless that I had to include it. Nutella and cheesecake, married into one perfect lasagna that is then dusted with brownie mix and chocolate chips. I can't really explain how much I'm salivating right now. (Sorry for that wonderful image.) Recipe by Modern Christian Homemaker Paleo Chocolate Lasagna Eating clean? Don't worry! We've still found the perfect dessert lasagna for you. Interesting ingredients in this one include coconut palm sugar, almond butter, apple cider vinegar, and shredded zucchini. I won't pretend to understand how it all works, but I will trust the author when she says it's delicious. Maybe. Recipe by Vanessa Barejas of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind (which is an awesome name for a blog) Fabulous Fruit Lasagna Whoa, a dessert lasagna that actually uses noodles! I bet you were wondering when one of these was gonna show up. This lasagna is a delightful conglomeration of fresh berries, mascarpone and ricotta cheeses, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, and a pinch of chili powder. Not what I was expecting! It can also be made, the author suggests, with chocolate pasta. Recipe by F.H. Browne, posted on Just a Pinch Chocolate Toast Crunch Lasagna Did you know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch has a chocolaty cousin? Chocolate Toast Crunch adds a special, well, crunchiness to this dessert lasagna. Its creamy filling has a hint of almond flavor. Mmm. Recipe by Cheeky Kitchen, posted on Tablespoon Frozen Snickers Peanut Butter Lasagna It's been pretty hot out, so why not stick your dessert lasagna in the freezer? Dry roasted peanuts, caramel sauce, and little pieces of Snickers? This is exactly what I want to be eating right now. Recipe by Not Your Momma's Cookie Oreo Pumpkin Lasagna Maybe you can't get enough of dessert lasagnas. Maybe you want to try more than one of them. Why not do it at the same time? This recipe is a combination of pumpkin pie and Oreo dessert lasagnas – and I can't think of a single reason it wouldn't be delicious. Recipe by Kitchen Nostalgia Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna But come on guys, let's be real: this is the dessert lasagna you've been waiting for. Layers of creamy and chocolatey deliciousness topped with mini Reese's cups? Game over. Recipe by Marty's Musings Chocolate Candy Lasagna This take on chocolate lasagna tops it off with yummy and colorful crushed M&Ms! And then you have your choice between caramel and hot fudge drizzle toppings. But I say, Vinglers... why not both? Recipe by Princess Pinky Girl (yes, that is her real name) Chocolate Lasagna 2.0 And finally, we've got one last spin on chocolate lasagna from Center Cut Cook. It features a thick Oreo crust, a sweet whipped cream cheese filling, chocolate pudding, and lots of tiny chocolate chips. I think the width of the crust layer and the crunchiness of the mini-chips set it apart from other versions! Recipe by Center Cut Cook Which one of these crazy creations are you trying first?

Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed S'mores Brownies
When it comes to the campfire roasted, ooey-gooey perfection that is s'mores, I'm a purist. I've never once considered putting anything but two rectangles of good ol' Hershey milk chocolate between marshmallow and graham cracker. But then I found this recipe at Melanie Makes, and I don't care what you say, about blasphemy or anything else – once you've seen this picture, there's no going back. I HAVE to try putting a peanut butter cup on a s'more. It's a physical need. And if I don't do it soon, I might explode. So somebody come over and make these brownies with me tonight, please – it's an emergency. Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed S'mores Brownies Prep Time: 20 min. Cook Time: 45 min. Difficulty: Easy.

Add marshmallows to top of brownies pressing lightly to adhere them to the warm brownies. Broil for 2-3 minutes or until they reach desired char level. Let brownies cool completely before attempting to cut and serve.
Koreatown LA: Desserts, Desserts, & More Desserts!
One of my East Coast friends is flying to LA this summer and staying in Koreatown. Since I'm a San Diegan that sometimes heads up to LA on weekends, she asked me what to eat and where to go when visiting K-Town. Being that we've got a whole bunch of K-Entertainment fans on here, I figured it might be useful to list places for ALL of you - so if and when you're in California, you know where to visit to try some delicious food. I figured I'd start off with a card dedicated to some of my all-time favorite Koreatown desserts! Bingsu @ Cafe Heyri 755 S Hobart Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90005 There's plenty of places to get Korean-style shaved ice in Koreatown, but none of them have the variety of Cafe Heyri. There's traditional red bean (pat) bingsu, melon, green tea, coffee, chocolate, and - my personal favorite - seasonal fruit (pictured above)! Macaron Ice Cream @ HAUS by Coffee Hunter 3826 W 6th St. Los Angeles, CA 90020 A growing trend in dessert cafes is the ice cream macaron - an ice cream sandwich made by layering ice cream between two very big macaron shells. Not only is HAUS' version my absolute favorite, but if you're a K-Pop fan, this cafe's got massive flat-screen TVs that play all your favorite music videos while you eat! Bungeoppang @ Okrumong 3801 W 6th St. Los Angeles, CA 90020 Not only is Okrumong famous for its incredible take on traditional patbingsu, but it's also one of the few places in Koreatown where you can get a basket fresh bungeoppang - fish-shaped waffle-like breads filled with red bean - to share with friends! Animal Donuts @ Fantastic Donuts 1101 S Vermont Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90006 You can read a little bit more about these adorable donuts here, but Fantastic Donuts has become pretty Instagram popular for their cute animal and character donut designs. (However, I'd definitely also recommend their cereal-topped ones. The Cinnamon Toast Crunch one almost tastes like a churro!) Honeycomb Ice Cream @ Honeymee 3377 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 116, Los Angeles, CA 90010 I was telling my fellow So.Cal foodie @hmfong that I've never been able to check out Honeymee personally. Why? Because every time I'm in the neighborhood, there's a huge line of customers! How's that for a testament about how locals feel about this simply vanilla soft-serve topped with liquid honey and a generous REAL honeycomb on top? Mochi Ice Cream @ Mikawaya 118 Japanese Village Plaza Mall, Los Angeles, CA 90012 So I'm cheating and throwing in a Little Tokyo wild card - Mikawaya! Chances are, if you've ever had store bought mochi ice cream, it was made by the Mikawaya company. But LA is the only place where you can visit its shop and order some pretty unique mochi ice cream flavors, including plum wine, black sesame, and mint chocolate chip! So which one of these would you be down to try? Have any of you visited Koreatown and have other recommendations? Let me know in the comments below, and for more #FOODPORN, follow my brand new foodie collection #FOODPORN!
